I have just brought a 2009 2.2tdci estate titanium x sport with 33,800 miles. it even got a sun roof. once I'm used to the car I want to map it out to get the best mpg. my focus was getting 71mpg alll day. so I'll miss that but hey that's a zetec so I've got a cracker of a car now. bought it for 10,000. it's got satnav also. it's a beast of a car.

I use 303 aerospace. it lasts a long time. I spray the engine bay ( engine running ) with jet wash, clean with g101 at 10:1, rinse and dry off and spray with 303. I have tried megs endurance tire gel and that works if you use a small amount as it's very oily so expect dust attraction. but 303 all the way.

Yeah I gave the micro switch a good greasing with some heavy duty low temp grease from work I had laying around but wd40. i wouldn't mine it you coule sens me a filé over so I can compare if that's ok. my address is ryanbarrimore at yahoo.co.uk. I only noticed this because in the GEM it said what caused the alarm to go off and it said hood ajar so I had a look and the switch was solid. so give it a good grease and exercise the switch and it will be fine. I think in very wet weather or everytime you wash your car is to grease it just to keep mind at rest. I have noticed that since I've done that the alarm will go off sometimes when I open the bonnet and then sometimes it doesn't. Not sure what could be causing that. least I now know the alarm is active and the indicators flash :) Thanks for replies

Car fixed. turns out the bonnet microswitch was having a moment and was really stiff so I lubricated it along with the lock and it appears to be fine now. thanks for your help through

I have a problem the original file has been overwritten as I've tried reloading what I thought was the original settings. so now what do I do? it's not a massive problem but it means that I don't have an alarm. :( what else can I do.
