In Topic: What Have You Done To Your Mondeo Today?

06 March 2015 - 10:46 AM

Not strictly today, but Saturday saw the long anticipated removal of the swirl flaps from the 2l Duratec engine on my Mondeo.


This weekend, giving it the long overdue service, inclusive of spark plugs. Looking forward to giving it some TLC, it's done nearly 3k miles since I bought it in September and it has performed admirably.

In Topic: Rear Wash Wipe

I sorted mine over the weekend. Wasn't the simple plug and play solution. My jet was actually blocked, nothing would resolve the block, so I've ordered a replacement but for the time being, drilled a hole using a 3mm bit through it so I can at least use the rear washer system properly!


Thanks for the tips on where to find the pipework, though. It meant I could disconnect it where it usually falls off and test it was working, which it was.

I will check mine shortly as this is the only gadget that needs attention now.

I did suspect that myself, but all of the other gadgets work perfectly.


I did find the connectors I mentioned earlier and shorted pins 1 & 4, but the compressor still did not kick in. When pressing the A/C button I did hear the fan start up, so I think I've narrowed it down to just being the compressor.

Replacing the stereo is straight forward, just order the correct fascia kit, wiring loom and tools to remove the old one. I'm leaving the 6 CD Sony unit in mine as it has an aux input in the glovebox anyway.


Never driven an X-Type but I have a friend who drives an S type and his Dad has driven Jags for a few years before as well and both have no complaints. I believe they are underneath the stuff we actually see, a Mondeo. I guess it'd be like an ST Mondeo but with a LOT more luxury in it.
