Mk6 1.4 Judders When Pull Away (semi Auto Box) In Auto Mode.

Yesterday, 03:48 PM

As title suggests. I have a 2003 semi auto fiesta with 72600. I have noticed when pulling away in auto mode the car judders four or five times when pulling away under a moderate throttle level. On a light throttle pull away wi don't get anything and also if I'm in manual mode I don't get hardly any knocking/juddering.

Any ideas and thoughts. I have heard that these gearboxes can be harsh on clutches and they don't last as long as a clutch used in a manual version. I think maybe the clutch has maybe worn out unevenly perhaps.

Other driving it works great through all five gears up and down and in kick down plus in manual mode.

Could it be possibly be bushing?

I can't find much information but all I know is not many people want to touch the boxes because of the problems but if its a clutch then it can't be that bad?

Thanks

Mk6.5 Tail Lights To Mk6 Questions

26 June 2015 - 10:26 AM

I have a new set if tail lights to install to my mk6 but have a couple of questions.

Been looking at the guide and doesn't make a lot of sence. Looks a bit of a mess and I hate mess like that. So there must be an easier way ie depin and solder new wire to existing one. I'm not one for cutting wire ect as my electric skills are crap which is why a mate of mine is doing it.

So all I need to do is run two more wires from either side (left to right or right to left) from fog to fog nd reverse to reverse. Cant be much else to that right?

I'll be running cables with the existing loom so I don't run risk of chaffing wires and causing problems.

Many thanks

Non Remote Car Key Cutting And Remote Locking Retro Fit

07 June 2015 - 01:02 PM

How easy is it to get a new key? What's the process?

I have only had fobs and never had to have a new key. The key has a chip in it so do I need to get it programmed or what?

I would go to ebay but not too sure about doing that unless someone knows a reliable source that would be great.

Also a quick question is whether you can retro fit central locking? The car has central locking but through the key only?

Many Thanks

Alternative Parts?

07 June 2015 - 03:09 AM

Does anyone know if there are other Ford models that share the same part numbers?

As in bushes. I would like to uprate them on my mk4 mondeo TXS but can't find anything for it.

So if anyone knows if it's a yay or a nay that would be great.

Boot Leak?

05 June 2015 - 04:05 PM

Bit strange but my boot is wet only in the centre aft of boot. Washed car earlier plus all the rain before hand and there was a small pool of water on the trim centre in the boot. Where the lock lines up with trim is where the water collects. I had a quick look at the lock and it looked a little damp.

So not sure what's happening or where it's leaking from. I may have to take the boot liner off and get a load of water on the boot to see where it goes.

Any thoughts on this?
Many Thanks

Ryan.
