In Topic: What Anti Theft Devise Would You Fit To Your Car.

I wonder how strong those halfords steering wheel locks are if the theith has not got the keys...they look good....but its surprising the tricks these guys know.

Extra door locks would not have helped...they broke the door in 2...and they have a house alarm but they have found that the rear kitchen sensor is faulty hence it did not go off....I think it may have been a blessing that they found the keys right away...just in case they went up and woke them up and demanded the keys,


So what is a good steering wheel lock...I'm out of touch with these things.



In Topic: Ka 1.3 2004 Duratec Engine Warning Light Come On????

Think I have sorted it...read on another forum that if you keep the trip pressed and turn the ing on and still keep it prssed...some codes come on the display...scrol through by pressing the trip....he said it also re-set the faul light which it did...


I think it must have sensced low coolant.



In Topic: Streetka Heater Control Valve

When I removed the original HCV from my daughters 04 KA...bought new,


I found that bits of the valve had broken off and got into the cooling sys...I wonder if this could have happend to yours and these bits of plastic could have stuck in the new valve stopping it from closing...maybe a good flush and a new valve,


I used a pattern part I got off ebay...still working ok.



In Topic: Ka 1.3 Duratec Engine...leak From Plastic Thermostat Housing.

14 June 2013 - 09:02 AM

Thanks for your advise guys...took the housing off and soon found that the grove that the seal sits in has broken up in parts letting the seal fall inside,


Seems the plastic Ford use in the cooling sys is very poor...has a simular prob with the electric heater valve some months ago...just disintergrated,


Ordered a new housing from the ebay link...just hope that aftermarket parts are better than the Ford item.
