Interesting. I'd heard something about (sorry if I'm wrong) Dual Mass flywheels being unreliable once mileage racks up. Or is that just on Mondeos?


So, a 40,000 mile 1.6 tdci CMax could be a good investment? How would I know which have the DPF - as yes, by far the majority of my journeys are short.

I had a similar problem with the glovebox socket - CD and Radio both fine, MP3 connected via socket kept losing a channel.

I removed the socket, cut the plug off one end of the lead that connects between the socket and the mp3/phone/whatever and hard wired them together, bypassing the socket.

That solved the problem. It also let me run the lead back behind the glovebox, and tuck it neatly under the centre console, coming up between the seats where I wanted it.

Hmm... I've tried that now. Sadly no improvement, but thanks for trying. She's off in for MOT and service tomorrow, I'll have a word there, but in the meantime if anyone has any other suggestions, I'd be really grateful.
