In Topic: Starting Problems With 56 Plate 2.2Tdci Mondeo

Thanks for the tip. I was speaking to a bloke at work tonight and he gave me the same advice.

Is it pretty easy to replace the starter motor?

Will have to get the Haynes manual out when I get home. Don't want to fork out for labour if I don't have to.



In Topic: Leak Into Cabin

Peter, thanks for your reply. Think I've found the problem. Hole in the rubber grommet that you mentioned. Both on the inside and underneath of the car. Can't put my finger through as they don't match up exactly but when spraying a hose pipe underneath water comes up through the inner hole. Trouble is it Looks like it may already have been sealed on the inside as there is no grommet that can simply be removed and replaced and resealed. Will some gutter sealant in both holes do the trick or do you think it may need further inspection?

In Topic: Leaking Passenger Footwell, Door Seals?

Deano, I'm experiencing exactly the same problem. Saturated rear passenger side footwell and wet front passenger side footwell. (See my post in this forum). I replaced the pollen filter and the leak came back. I have pulled up the carpet in the back this morning and discovered that there is a hole in the drainage cap in the footwell. This matches a similar sized hole on the underneath of the car in the same place on the cap. Although you can't put your finger straight through the hole, spraying water underneath the vehicle with a hosepipe confirmed my suspicions and the water started coming through.

Anybody else had this problem, will some gutter sealant on the underneath and inside be a suitable repair?
