Few Problems With My Old Mondy

30 April 2013 - 11:49 PM

Hi all its been a while since I been on here, but I recently got my old mondeo back (I traded cars with my mum as she didn't like having a big car and I wanted it back till December  when I will have the money for a ST 220 TDCI) 


I have a Y reg mondeo 2.0 petrol duratourq 

I figured I got some problems with my car that are niggling me.


The list of problems are and any help with just one of the problems would be great.


I need a new fuel filter Im sure I read that is at the back of the car but some people suggest its in the engine bay.


I plan on changing the rear bushes and the front bushes as they are beginning to squeak with some poly ones as I've heard allot of good information about them so I just wanted to know if it was a worth getting them?


The rear diver side door doesn't unlock/lock with the central locking it will lock/unlock if you flick the switch (on the door above the handle) I wanted to know if this was a common fault and if there was a way to fix it?


I plan on changing the disks and pads (all round) the front driver side is a little warped under heavy-ish breaking it shudders a little (nothing alarming) its just from having bad wheel bearing's (which got replaced as part of the agreement when I swapped cars) 


whist im doing that im going to change the brake hoses and paint the calipers (either black or silver not chavy orange or something :P


My last question is I want to clean the engine just give it a bit of TLC is there any thing I should do to protect the components  I plan on doing it the hard way with the brush not a hose pipe so I will be avoiding getting the ECU and battery e.c.t wet.



Thanks for reading and thanks in advance for any help given :)
