Put a thin screwdriver in between the metal lip of the socket and the plastic surround and lever the socket out.

Bet you weren't thinking that when the dealership was handing over the keys to your ST  :P


I was thinking 'Where's the nearest motorway' :D

Feeling a bit 'poor' at the moment - everyone on the forum seems to be upgrading to a brand new car!  :P


You can't take it with you ;)

Well happy with it.
Goes like a stabbed rat.
It's more nimble than the patrol car as it hasn't got all the extra kit fitted to it and I reckon a bit faster too.
I will take some more (blur free) piccies when I get a chance.
If I were to give test drives to everyone who's asked so far I'd be getting to drive it myself about mid june :D

Your doggy passengers get better travel arrangements than most human passengers lol


The rules for carriage and care of Police dogs is very strict now due to that case in 2011 when two dogs died in Notts.
The regs we have to abide by now are very specific.

Just been on to my current insurance company (CIS) who I've stayed with for 4 years and they declined to give me a transfer of policy for my ST or even give me a quote for a new policy so they are cancelling my current cover as of midnight Friday with a refund for the remaining 2 months of cover.

Went on-line via GoCompare and all set up in 10 minutes with Esure for £350 plus £200 excess - bear in mind this is for a 26 grand, insurance group 35 vehicle (includes windscreen/legal/courtesy/misfuel/keys/audio/personal injury/recovery).

It bugs me that a company I have been loyal to for so long just turns around saying "we don't cover brand new cars" WTF?

Their loss and Esures gain :P




#478998 How To Replace Side Mirror?

Posted by Stoney871 on 23 April 2015 - 08:37 AM

It is very straightforward, as long as the nut goes on OK.

Did one on my old Mk1 Focus and dropped the bolt into the door cavity DOH! (very easily done).

Learned my lesson on that one, so when I had to do the other side a few months later I put a length of string around the bolt just in case.
