#490666 Mk3 2011 Focus Rear Wheel Bearing

Posted by stef123 on Today, 10:34 AM

I unbolted the hub assembly,bought a new bearing and then took it all to a machine workshop that pushed out the old and pressed in the new bearing,cost £31.20p to do the job,much easier.


Sent from my iPad using Ford OC

 

That must have been on a mk1 or 1.5? From the mk2 onwards the rear hub comes as a sealed assembly

Have a look at the rod attaching the pedal to the master cylinder is still in place. Quite often they pop off

As Mark has already said - P0200 is injector circuit malfunction. First place I would be looking is at the wiring loom for the injectors


#487285 Engine Malufunction Light Issue

Posted by stef123 on 18 May 2015 - 04:10 PM

Could be diluted oil due to D.P.F. regen's ? , i'd buy a code reader & interrogate immediately next time it happens.

 

The mondeo I went to look at wouldn't show anything up on obd2, probably needs a ford system




#487283 Engine Malufunction Light Issue

Posted by stef123 on 18 May 2015 - 03:56 PM

I have come across this before on a mk4 mondeo, malfunction light on the dashboard but nothing coming up.

 

Turned out it needed an oil change, cant remember if it had detected fuel in oil or not - memory aint great :lol:




#486969 Gearbox Oil Change

Posted by stef123 on 17 May 2015 - 05:10 PM

sorry i have just realised you have said tdi, is that a tddi or a tdci? Not sure if they use an IB5 or an MTX75 box. IB5 won't have a drain plug.




#486898 Gearbox Oil Change

Posted by stef123 on 17 May 2015 - 01:59 PM

The gearbox has no drain plug and as such is meant to be 'sealed for life' but I personally don't like that idea. That said I only tend to do the oil when doing a clutch or if someone specifies otherwise..




#486620 Finesse Not Starting - Help

Posted by stef123 on 15 May 2015 - 11:04 PM

A dead alternator will not stop the car from starting if it has a charged battery or from a jump start.

The symptoms you give, dashboard going dull and clicking noise are commonly experienced when the battery is flat. However if jump starting with another vehicle then this shouldn't be a problem (providing the leads have a good connection).


#485887 Vibration On Startup - 240 Ecoboost Engine

Posted by stef123 on 13 May 2015 - 08:59 PM

As its an ecoboost (petrol) there probably is no filter as such - more of a screen around the pump in the tank and not a serviceable part.




#485770 Fiesta Won't Start

Posted by stef123 on 13 May 2015 - 04:52 PM

First of all, is the engine turning over on the starter? can you hear the fuel pump priming (as already mentioned)? What is the immobiliser light doing when you attempt to start the car?




#483758 Possible Oil/fluid Leak!!!! Pls Help!

Posted by stef123 on 08 May 2015 - 12:35 PM

I wouldn't use halfords if they were the last garage on the planet to be brutally honest. I done work for a guy last year who's car failed it's mot on front brakes at halfords. He supplied the parts (ebc drilled and grooved pads with discs for front and rear) and I fitted them. Halfords quoted him, £360 to supply and for front discs only! All in he spent £180!


#483629 Possible Oil/fluid Leak!!!! Pls Help!

Posted by stef123 on 08 May 2015 - 09:06 AM

As far as I know the fiesta clutch is manual, not hydraulic, So a noisy release bearing will have nothing to do with a fluid leak.


They are hydraulic.


#483546 Possible Oil/fluid Leak!!!! Pls Help!

Posted by stef123 on 07 May 2015 - 11:23 PM

I'm thinking both of these issues could be related. A noisey clutch release bearing and possible fluid leak from it too.. So that fluid could be brake fluid


#482923 Ford C Max Front Wishbones

Posted by stef123 on 05 May 2015 - 08:06 PM

Easiest fix is just to replace the complete arm, im not familiar with the C-max, but usually replacing bushes means cutting/pressing them out/pressing them in.




#482764 Clutch Slave Cylinder Slipping

Posted by stef123 on 05 May 2015 - 01:08 PM

That part is actually the master cylinder but however that's irrelevant really.

You can use a good cable tie, small jubilee clip of get a star shaped washer from ebay.
