well here's an update on the car, it's been fixed and the problem found regarding the shaking, going to enjoy the car for a few days and relax, stress levels have been going through the roof, if you live in leeds or surrounding area i cannot recommend this garage enough, AUTOCARE CENTRE MORLEY LEEDS , they are excellent and very honest , won't rip you off, keep you well informed, i literally gave keith a blank cheque and he did not abuse it in anyway.
here's his report.

i completely understand the inconvenience of car of the road. i am the only driver in our house and the wife and son are quite dissabled i need my car to keep up with their needs never mind anything else. when my car is off the road its like missing an arm or leg. if u let locals know what this garage is like then u could save countless people grief and inconvenience. kick their !Removed!'!!


you sound like a man with a good heart chris :)

In Topic: Heated windscreen and seats

14 January 2010 - 12:50 PM

I am looking to buy a 55 plate ST TDCI Mondeo. Had one before until someone wrote it off from behind.

However when I test drove this next one I noticed the front and rear heated window button lights came on when I turned the engine on. I have been told by the seller that this is suppossed to happen as automatically linked to the temperature. My old 54 plate ST did not do this (admittedly it is very cold at the mo)...

Is this right?

Also - any ideas why the heated seats wouldn't be working... what needs checking?


i have read somewhere that some models do that, but i honestly can't be certain if its the mk3 0r mk4 models, only thing i can suggest is test driving another 55 st tdci model somewhere else and see if it's the same, not sure about the seat.

do you know what concerns me the most about garages like this , is they actually endanger peoples lives with the workmanship they do on cars, ive though "what if", if the clutch pedal had failed at high speed and my wife and kids had been in the car , if the spring coil had snapped at high speed, my wife would not have known what to do, and she would have panicked, what if it had happened on a motorway , thankfully it never happened, BUT because of them it could have done and that worried me more than anything, they really do not give a damn , so i will do my dammed hardest to shut them down, they crossed a line as far as im concerned.

thanks for the reply chris, to me it's gone beyond getting my money back and getting it just for the spring coil, the way they conned me over this flywheel and clutch and then tried to rip me off again with the clutch release bearing, and then obviously the damaged caused by that prat, its the effect it has on your personal life as well , getting to work, taking the kids to school, picking kids up, my wife does the shopping every week for her elderly grandparents who are both in their 90's, and her grandfather has got pancreas cancer, so our car is a life line for them too, plus having to visit them during the week, then the onus is on the consumer to prove that the garage ripped you off and the time and effort fitting all that in, and taking it to other garages to fix what they did wrong, all that on top off everyday life is stressful and not needed, i understand why fiesta lad is stiil angry about what happened to him, no mate , by the time ive finished with this garage he won't have any money left for me, i am going to destroy his reputation, he was struggling when he tried to rip me off on the release bearing, im just going to hammer the final nail in, and he deserves it, i always try not to take life too seriously cause its a fact their are people who go through alot worst things in life , but when somebody blatantly rips me off or tries to on 3 occasions then all bets are off.

god i bet i sound like a vigilante :blink:
