In Topic: What Have I Done? How Do I Fix It?!!!!!

Hi Jon


The car will not run well with the pipe off , you could take the rubber elbow off the egr, dig out the broken part from the elbow, and cut a very small piece off the hard plastic pipe, then try and join elbow to the hard pipe, take care when doing this as the hard pipe is fragile, to help you do this take the other end of the map sensor and do it in doors in the warm. it will work for short time giving you the time to get a new one.


The new one is a straight swap.

Hi,  the pipe that you are pointing to is the map sensor pipe,  its a hard plastic pipe with soft rubber elbow ends, most good ford outlets will be able to get you one.


Hard to fix as its it made of hard plastic for a reason, so that it will not collapse under vacuum pressure.

Hi, aren't the threads on the outside. not that it maters which side the threads are, just drill two small holes in the top, then put in two self tapping screws in and turn with a screwdriver a cross the screws.

In Topic: Anybody Know Where I Can Get A New Clock Spring

Hi,  there are two types of mk1 clock spring,  you have make sure which steering wheel you have, one as a small badge on the airbag and one as a big badge on the airbag,  they are not interchangeable,  as the plugs are different.


Hope this helps you, and e-bay is the cheapest place to get one, I have used a second hand one my self and it was fine.
