Air Con Clutch Not Engaging

22 April 2014 - 07:49 AM

Hi All,

About a week ago we had an Air Con service and at the weekend it was the first time we had come to use it and noticed that we were not getting the cold air blast we thought we would.

Now having sat quietly in the car whilst it's ticking over I cannot hear the clutch engage/disengage which I'm pretty sure it was doing before the service. Before I call the company back out and potentially have another charge what can I do/check to test to see what the possible problem is?

Thanks - Jason

Usb Not Playing Songs

09 July 2013 - 12:46 AM

Hi All,


It has takn me a while to get round to trying to sort this out so here goes....


I updated my Sony Gen2 DAB Radio with the latest firmware in Nov '12 and ever since then I'm having problems with my USB playing songs.

It seems to work fine with ignition on but then when I switch engine on it pauses and won't play until I either change tracks or switch the radio off and back on again.

Anyone else have this issue?


I am assuming that there is a bug in the firmware.


Thanks - Jason

Keyfob Battery

27 April 2013 - 09:46 AM

Hi All,

Quick question....my brother has a mk2 '55 reg and has a non flip keyfob and needs his battery changing.

Timpsons have advised him that if he does change the battery Ford need to reprogramme the keyfob back to the car at £££££

I'm sure this is not the case....can anyone confirm this?



Oil Leak - Advise Please

23 April 2013 - 05:06 PM

Hi All,

This is my naivety coming through here.....

I found some oil underneath this pipe the other week...I cleaned it up and re-checked it again today and found more oil and what seems to be fresh.

I've taken the pipe off and tried to check for splits and cannot visually see any but did find oil inside the pipe.

Has anyone else come across this or what could be the problem?
Should there be oil inside this pipe?

Is this a breather pipe or what is it known as?


I have a 2.0TDCI Duratec engine on an '09 reg plate

Many Thanks guys/girls smile.png
