Service Types

07 May 2015 - 09:48 AM

My dad has not long had a 4 years service from AC, he's been told it need spark plugs & and air filter due to their age for replacement at our cost


just wondering what year of a service (2nd, 3rd, 4th etc) do Ford recommend for these to be replaced


cause i think we'll be back complaining saying AC are not servicing to Fords standard, as they did the 3rd year as well. Just need to get my facts right first before we go back in.



also, after 6 months and about 500 miles later they say all 4 brake discs & pads are advised to be replaced, the car has only done 12k

Mondeo, Mk4, 2.0L Spark Plugs

24 April 2015 - 08:58 AM

Looking to replace the spark plugs on my dads car, a 2011 mk4, can't find much info on which ones are right, the V5 says this


Type - BA7

Variant - AOBC1E

Version - 5BLB ND


so i take it the engine code id AOBC?



looking on eurocarparts, it looks like TR6AP-13 are the right plugs


just really need conformation that they will be fine



don't want to take out an original plug to check just in case we knacker up the threads with too many in/out of plugs



also, anybody know the torque of the plug and the gap size?




Just Replaced A Master Brake Cylinder

27 October 2014 - 07:41 PM

well, the garage did, (58 plate fiesta)


just wondering, i replaced the disc's & pads, took the cap off of the reservoir, gently squeezed back the pistons.


not long after that, say 6 months, i started to get a wee squeak from the brakes, lightly touching the brake pedal would stop it, but it gradually got worse, so garage it was.


got told they think it was the MBC, they've replaced it (also cleaned/greased the brakes from & back) and it seems to have done the trick


just wondering if this has happened to anybody, as mechanics at my work (offshore) are saying it would've been highly unlikely the MBC
