In Topic: Guide For Focus Mk2/mk2.5 C-Max/kuga ~Elm 327 Cable And Ff2 Program

First try disconnecting car battery and re-connecting it.

if it still wont upload, then remove the ECU from the vehicle... its found in the passenger side wheelarch behind the plastic liner.

need to cut slots in the heads of the bolts then you can undo with a screwdriver.

next, need to physically open the ECU, then bench flash directly back onto the chip so you will need to find somebody who can give you an ECU dump.

if you don't have the facility to do this a new PCM will be required and programming by ford as at the moment its essentially in a "Bricked" state.

TSB 95/2009
Should a customer express concern about exhaust gas smell inside of passenger cabin when the engine is running in idle and the vehicle is in stationary position, the probable cause is a misalignment of the catalytic converter to the turbocharger.

Can't remember but on Mondeo which s max is based on, on 1 engine there was a tsb about exhaust fumes.

Apparently a bracket on exhaust where it joints turbo needed modifying and adjusting

In Topic: Mtx75 Rear Lower Gear Box Mount...

No problem :)

Lots of people think it's an engine mount, even on car parts websites it's listed under engine mount... But it's not an engine mount and does nothing to mount the engine.

So like you have found you will have more luck searching for a engine roll restrictor.
