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.
