#507964 What Wipers????

Posted by SeanW on 01 August 2015 - 01:56 PM

I've just fitted Bosch - and thr squelch on the return stroke.

I was using the Ford ones. They were good, but degraded prematurely due to the sand that permanently covered my car when I was in Blackpool.

Used to use Asda cheapo aero-flats on the Punto - they weren't bad

#504778 Wind Noise From Passenger Side Mirror?

Posted by SeanW on 21 July 2015 - 01:16 PM

I'm afraid it is normal.

I think it comes from the black plastic fascia panel.

No idea why the OS isn't as badly affected though


#504753 Never Understimate The Power Of...

Posted by SeanW on 21 July 2015 - 10:10 AM

Changed mine the other week - again, didn't look too bad - but the engine is certainly more responsive. Can't comment on the MPG - spent a lot of time towing a big trailer around lol


#504752 Would This Fit?

Posted by SeanW on 21 July 2015 - 10:05 AM

Worth messaging the seller - he might have the Mk2 in as well!!


#504605 Bike Rack

Posted by SeanW on 20 July 2015 - 07:59 PM

That and properly secured!! Don't want anything vibrating or knocking into the glass.

Another option would be towbar mounted. Advantage of having the towbar is that you can plug a lightboard in should you need it (depends on the rack design)

#504212 Smoke First Thing In The Morning?

#503739 Down Gears Not Working 2,4 And R

Posted by SeanW on 18 July 2015 - 01:18 PM

Just the bottom set of gears...might be worth checking the linkages.

If it was anything inside the box itself it would be one hell of a coincidence that only those three would be affected.

So: inspect, clean & lube - possibly replace. Don't know how big the job would be though

I am making an observational guess lol

Vauxhaul

Soap Opera

Effort

Morale

Enthusiasm




#503004 Is It Ok To Mix Oil?

Posted by SeanW on 15 July 2015 - 03:10 PM

The Range have Castrol Magnatec A1 (the Ford recommended one) at about £30 for 4l. Or ECP have 5l of Shell Helix AF for about the same price. An oil filter is about 6-7 quid. You can get cheaper oils that will do the job, up to you.
