Mondeo Mk4 2.0 Tdci Egr Removal And Cleaning

14 March 2015 - 07:49 PM

I though I would share my thoughts on removing the EGR from a mk4 Mondeo. Unfortunately due to stress levels I never took and photos.

 

The EGR is at the back of the engine on the top. 4 bolts are easy to see and remove, 2 of the bolts fix the EGR to the engine block and the other 2 bolt the EGR to the EGR cooler. There are 5 other bolts you need to remove as well. These are for the metal pipe that goes from the EGR to the inlet manifold, 2 at either end and 1 bolt that secures this metal pipe to the side of the engine.

 

The one bolt I couldn't find was underneath the EGR itself. You cant see it at all. I ended up going out to buy one of those dentist style mirrors which helped no end. This last bolt is an allen bolt that requires a 5mm allen key, the allen key needs cutting down somewhat in order to fit as space is very limited. Once this bolt is loosened (you dont need to remove it) the EGR can be removed by sliding it back towards the windscreen area. This whole precess took be about 2 hours plus to figure out and then about 10 minutes to put back together.

 

After all of this my EGR was nothing like I was expecting. My car has covered 80,000 miles and it was clean, a bit of soot but other wise there was nothing. My MK3 was caked at this mileage and to the point that you could scrape it out. It seems the MK4 runs muh cleaner.

 

I certainly wont bother removing it again unless it is to replace it. I was hoping this was the cause of my poor fuel economy but it now seems it's my MAF sensor but a full diagnostic on Tuesday will confirm this for sure.

 

I'm working for the next few days but if I get a few spare minutes I'll take some pictures that might help others out and save you time trying to figure out how it comes apart (Haynes manual was next to useless)

 


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)
