Air-Con Steel Pipe..

06 July 2011 - 03:09 PM

Down the right side of the engine bay on my 05 Ranger is a steel pipe coupled to the air-con. This pipe is always dripping with condensation
and is freezing cold all it's length..(it's always 32+ degrees here in Thailand)
My dumb-!Removed! question is..should this pipe be lagged? Would slipping polystyrene lagging improve the efficiency of the system?
Was it originally fitted with insulation when new?? Any comments welcome..This is general air-con question, not just for Rangers I guess..?
Cheers now.

Loose Gear-Lever.

04 July 2011 - 06:43 AM

Have just got an '05 XLT. Nice truck, drives well, but the gear-lever has to much free movement side to side..40 ton HGVs have a smoother shift
than this one..the gears DO select fine..just the slap on the lever makes the change feel un-sure. Any simple answer to this one..worn bush on selector? some linkage come loose on top of g/box? Anyone had/have this glitch?? Cheers now.. U.S.

Hey There You Lot..

After trawling Google for ages trying to find a site that offers info on Rangers made here..I've finally found you lot.
The Ranger I just bought is an '05 XLT Hi-Rider.
(Yes I know there's 6+ thousand miles between Here and the UK, but Thai models & UK ones are nearly the same.
I am just so,so fed up with typing-in 'Ford Ranger' on Google and up comes page after page of American-spec trucks (150's etc)
Hope in future months I can enjoy using this forum with positive feedback... Cheer now.. U.S.
