Steam Powered Misfire

27 April 2012 - 05:26 PM

Hi all, I have an unusual problem on my 1.4 Fusion Zetec. It started out as a misfire. When I plugged in the scanner, it came up with misfire cylinder 4. After investigating this, it seems that the problem is steam, escaping from an allen key bolt on the cylinder head between cylinders 3 & 4. The bolt is in the middle of cylinders 3 & 4, goes in the same direction as the plugs and seem to be a blanking plug for the water jacket. Has anyone come across this before and can I take this plug out to seal with PTFE? The picture shows the bolt as viewed looking down plug number 4 towards plug number 3. Sorry its not very clear.

Replacing Tailgate

18 February 2012 - 10:41 AM

I am about to replace the tailgate on my fusion (as the old one is damaged) and would like to know, is there a plug for the electrics? I have pulled out the gromit and had a look, but the wiring loom just seems to dissapear behind the headlining. Before I start to strip down the interior, could someone please tell me if there is a plug, or will I just have to feed all the wires into the new tailgate?

Many thanks, Paul.

Galaxy Electric Windows

28 September 2011 - 06:30 PM

Hi all, a mate of mine has just bought an oldish galaxy. The problem is that the electric windows do not work. He says that he looked on Autodata which says there is a control module under the passenger seat. He says that there is no module or wiring for one under the passanger seat. Has anyone got any idea where else it may be?

Cheers, Paul.

Tripple Deck > Single Din

16 May 2011 - 05:15 PM

Hi All, just been looking on Ebay at various bits n bobs. I've seen the double din conversion kits advertised for the fusion. Is this for the later fusion or will it fit my fusion with the triple deck CD player? I noticed that if I was to try to fit this into my fusion, it would mean butchering the dash. Does anyone know the easiest any way to fit a single din stereo into the triple deck dash without damaging it?

many thanks, Paul.

Fusion Door Open Light

15 May 2011 - 04:40 PM

Hi all, I have a problem with the light on the dash that warns that a door is open. Sometimes when driving along the road, if I hit a bump, the door warning light comes on along with the interior lights. Then when I lock the doors, it may or may-not go out. I think it may be a problem with one of the door switches but I cannot find them. It has had a slight prang on the tailgate, could this have something to do with it? I would be grateful for any ideas you may have.

Cheers, Paul.
