In Topic: dashboard warning lights

cheers 4 the advice, turns out the switch had a bit of corrosion on the contacts. just gave it a clean up and its all good again. door open indicator isnt working yet but thats no biggy. and ive just been to see a mk5 and it had the same dash as mine so thats still a mystery!
i know it was one of the last mk4's to be made so that might be why.
oh well cheers any way.

interesting that it has the mk5 dash!
maybe someone swapped it before i had it.
i'll check the sensors tommorow and the the fuses. shouldnt be a difficult fix regardless.
and i think the light is on the correct setting because it comes on when the passenger door is opened.

right, i've got exactly the same car and ive fitted ford alloys, re-sprayed it and have a rear spoiler (not fitted).
the burgendy colour is called 'pepper red' and any body shop will be able to match it.
the wheels came from a scrappy and they were 80 with brand new tyres and they are the zetec alloys. (no reason why you can't find the same deal)
the spoiler came from the scrap yard too, luckily found one in the same colour so it didnt need spraying. i paid 20 for it but ive seen them for 100< in the past.
tar, Tom

In Topic: wobbly gearstick!!

just realised what it was...
when the gearbox was dropped to get the clutch done one of the clips around the selector rod was loosened and not tightened!!
so the whole thing is rotating where the clip should be.
quick tighten of a bolt n everything's sweet!
