In Topic: Service Types

You can check ford etis as its a website just type ford etis UK in Google. Then you just enter the vehicle reg or chassis number and it brings up everything about that car. All garages will try to up sell as that's how the service advisers make there bonus. Check etis on what should be done and take a print out with you as they shouldn't charge extra for work that's done in the service costs.

cheers, i thought it was a log in site, just saved the 3 year & 4 year service schedules, i'm away offshore tomorrow so i'll email my brother, who's better at questioning the service guys then me lol

thanks Steven,


can't check on ford etis, as i don't have it.


this will at least give us some info to go back to AC and say you are not servicing the car to Ford's schedule.


as for the brake disc's, they are not pitted as what you'd expect with not much miles, rusting up then getting used, they are scored through use

In Topic: Just Replaced A Master Brake Cylinder

A squeak on the brakes that goes with slight pressure applied to the pedal is more than likely nothing more than the pads. Take them out, apply copper grease to the backs and pop back in. At the very worse, maybe a new set of pads.....?



As said above, sounds like they took you for a ride changing the master cylinder. Also a lot of brake systems have anti squeal shims behind the pads which can lose effectiveness over time.


i had both sets of front pads out when they started squeaking, greased up and replaced, still the same squeak


i'll check to see if it has been replaced

I would expect it to get cold even sitting still, that tell sme that the clutch is not engaging, or the compressor is not engaging properly?


It could be if ithasnt been used properly in a while that it was stuck, in which case the drive may have shook it loose, but I would say keep an eye on it!

i'll keep an eye on it and see how it goes


410 grams I would think.

Is the radiator cooling fan running when your idle?

i'll need to check, i've also an aircon bomb to do, so i'll check when thats working
