In Topic: Should We Trust Garages?

15 August 2014 - 08:09 PM

boyracer mechanic was servicing jeebo's car.
Before/after servicing decided to use jeebo's car to take himself around town and to a tesco cash machine, then to a mates house, curbing one of jeebo's alloys aswell as labouring the engine,
Thanfully jeebo had a dash cam fitted :lol: has the whole thing on video including the guy's face when he got out to use the cash machine at tesco lol currently in court and mechanic allegedly got sacked or eh a finger wagging from the boss,

 

Jeebo, did you have thesame camera as in the thread you started a while back  http://www.fordownersclub.com/forums/topic/50774-gs8000l-dashcam-review/ ?  What position was it mounted for no one to notice it was there?  I have mine fitted behind the rear view mirror and none of my passengers have ever noticed it, but I'm sure another driver would as they are always (or should be) looking at the mirror as they drive.  Unles sit is completely covered over with trim I can't see how they would miss it.

Stoney, did you think about using this type of cable - http://www.ebay.com/itm/161132397465 which could save on the 12V socket and USB plug especially if space is tight.  I'm sure they do the ends in mini and micro USB femaile sockets as well if thats what you need.  You would just need to cut off the existing Ford connector and splice the cables together.  Just a thought as another option.


In Topic: Minimum On Break Pads

13 August 2014 - 08:43 PM

I just changed pads at 85k miles and was surprised at how much wear was left on them judging by the thickness of material left.  I have also previously changed pads and disks at less than 40k so it depends on the car and how you drive it.  I mainly do motorway and A roads nowadays so a lot more miles and less braking.  No idea how to tell when they need to be changed apart from checking the thickness every now and then or waiting for the grinding metal on metal noise...


In Topic: My New Mobius Dashcam

12 August 2014 - 07:39 PM

There was another thread in the Focus section not long ago, but now buried abut 12 pages down in the forum - http://www.fordowner...k2-focus/page-7

 

This is my set up, just behind the driver's side of the rear view mirror using a custom made mount.  I can just see a corner of the rain sensor cover but it doesn't bother me.  The most important is that it is put of sight from inside and out and sees whats ahead of the car.  Works a treat.

 

 

Here is a picture taken from the driver's door.
