Back To Ford Back To This Forum, Thought I Say Hi

05 May 2013 - 05:49 PM

Hi All, 


I just thought I say hi again. I've had a mk2 Mondeo ST24 when joined here, then that's got sold in December as I've partX-d it to my wife's X-mas present (A-class) 

Thank the merc messed up real bad, so decided never ever again :) Since Ford never let me down before, I've picked up a mk1 Focus Estate which I'm so far very happy with. 


This is my 6th Ford so far and my second Focus :) 


All the best!



Sos Help Needed Pls!

10 November 2012 - 06:54 PM

Hi All,

I need some SOS help, sorry if it's a sticky, but I gotta ask...

So, my st24 hatch, is locked... but with the keys in the boot... I was an idiot, I was fixing the boot lock, and in the testing process i locked the central locking, and the keys were in the boot when I closed it down... realized it after, but obviously at that point is sort of screwed...

I just got the car, it only came with one set... Breakdown cover and locksmith are no options at the moment, as I don't have AA and they messing me around, locksmith charges unreasonable amounts.. So I'm trying to sort it without them. Smashing the window I try to keep as a last resort.

I had that problem before in my mk2 GLX, the guy came, pulled on the door, put a wire thing in, hooked on the door opener, pulled it, opened the central locking. I tried that, manage to pull the door opener, but it does not open for some reason... tried on driver's side and passenger side...

any suggestions?????

The only luck is, it's on my drive way :)

Couple Of Small Issues

04 November 2012 - 01:34 AM

Hi All,

hope someone can give me some tips...

I got this ST24 from a dealer in North Wembley, and i managed to get a fairly good deal on it, but it does have some minor issues. (i hope minor)

-It does not have the original key, and the batteries are dead, so opening the door manually with the key. Sometimes it opens all doors sometimes it doesn't. also, the boot doesn't unlock not with the central locking, not with the key directly using that lock. (tried WD40, so far no luck)

- Passenger side door's electric window control doesn't work, yet I can operate it from the driver's door control panel.

These are my current and most important issues with it. It has some other small problems, like one of the jacking point covers missing (need to buy one), and the right side front fog light needs canging, the seats I'd like to change, and also the door inserts Posted Image

Biggest exterior fault is the rust was treated on the rear right wheel arch and whoever did it, did a sh!t job Posted Image So at some point that needs fixing, but that only because it bothers my eyes...

Any help appreciated on the current issues!


Greetings :)
