Sound Deadening Doors - Do I Need The Membrane Still?

06 February 2015 - 09:37 AM

I'm just about to fit some silent coat sound deadening to my Mondeo MK4. I intend to do both the innner and out part of the door. The inner part to seal it as well.

 

With doing this will I still need the membrane to prevent water ingress or will the sound deadening surfice?

 

many thanks


Radio Code Sont 6 Dab 6 Cd Changer 2009

30 January 2015 - 06:16 PM

I've fitted a new pollen filter today and in the process of doing so I lost power to the radio. I went to my Ford pack only to find the card for the radio code was blank.

I rang the Ford dealership where the car came from originally and they gave me a code but it wouldn't work. They seem to think it may have had a replacement stereo fitted t another dealership and Ford do not keep a record on a central database for this.

 

I've managed to get the serial number for the stereo. My question is does anyone know a website where I can get the 4 digit code I need? I don't want to be using anything dodgy and I cant get into a dealership until next week. I cant drive for a whole week with no radio


Mondeo Mk4 Titanium - Auto Dim Mirror

20 January 2015 - 05:10 PM

Picking up MK4 Mondeo Titanium tomorrow after buying it today.

 

It has factory fitted privacy glass meaning it's quite dark. When I test drove it the auto dim rear view mirror seemed quite dark. Im not sure if this is because of the privacy glass or because the mirror is broken.

 

I have the same type of mirror in my MK3 and its much brighter.

 

Can anyone shead any light on this? (excusse the pun)


Dash Lights Only On With Main Lights

11 July 2014 - 08:53 PM

My dash lights for speedo and rev counter etc only come on with my side lights and main lights. Is it possible to get them to come on permanently without my main lights?
Sometimes it can get a bit cloudy or under trees and you can't see your speed etc.
The dash lights in my mrs 09 fiesta come on right away. Mines an 06 Zetec mondeo

Mondeo 2.0 Tdci Blanked Egr - Worth Replacing Egr Still?

17 February 2014 - 04:27 PM

I've got an 06 Mondeo TDCI 2.0.

 

I've recently blanked the EGR valve due to filling my rear view mirrow with plumes of smoke. Since blanking the EGR the plumes of smoke have stopped except for a small amount if I really boot it which I assume is pretty normal for a diesel.

 

As mine isa euro 4 spec the EML keeps coming on and I keep resetting it. I'm wondering if I change the EGR for a new one will the heaving smoking return or was it likely it was smoking as the EGR wasn't shutting/working correctly?

 

I have checked the main air hose to the intercooler and it contained no splits (yes it was removed for checking). Could any other hoses be contributing to heavy smoke now the EGR has been blanked or was it likely the EGR was the main cause of this?

 

I'm just trying to get to the underlying problem. I know most will say to keep the blank in but I like things right. I see many other Mondeo TDCI's around that don't smoke.
