In Topic: Mk4 Fiesta Facelift Steering Wheel Issues

20 August 2012 - 04:22 AM

If you are permanently removing the airbag then you will need to fit a resistor or will get a constant airbag fault warning light on the dash which is an MOT fail.
TBH I'm not sure if removing an airbag is a fail as well

Some new MOT rules have just been brought in. It may be if a steering wheel originally had an airbag in, it is a fail to take it out, it certainly is a fail is the warning light comes on. don't know the position on taking the fuse out ?. PS: I think a Mk four facelift is what also is called a Mk 3.5

A mention on Top Gear's news and auto industry happenings section, where they sit on the chairs together, would work wonders. More than any petition or Forum could do (with respect to posters here)

In Topic: Engine Fan Staying On When Driving

On other makes of car this happens when it defaults to 'emergency mode' usually when the coolant level it below the lowest safe level. Not sure if it happens with Mondeos, better worth a check though if you havent already. Also i'd check the thermostat. Check all wires to sensor connections.

Also is the AC on ? This is sometimes the normal thing if the AC is running. (dont own Mondeo so i dont know) Maybe if its on low its not being noticed.

Do you have access to a handheld engine scan sensor, to plug in and see if any errors are flagging ?

Sorry for trotting out the obvious things first, but belive me we all sometimes miss checking them

In Topic: Best Back To Black Trim Product

I've just invested in some Gtechniq C4 permanent trim restorer. I've not had chance to use it yet but the videos iv'e seen are pretty good and it's supposed to last for a couple of years. Downside is it's not cheap.
