In Topic: fitting an alternator

20 April 2008 - 08:59 AM

thanks, since the message i got one for 20. i found out to my displeasure that the noise did turn out to be the exhaust, as it suddenly came away at the connection to the silencer bit halfway down the m2, fantastic! <_<.

however, i think i still need a new alternator because my airbag light is constantly on, having checked connections etc, i had a diagnostic test on it and he suggested a new alternator, should this cure that problem?? but like u say, im nowhere near u, kent infact!

does having air con make any difference to fitting it? as this is what mechanics are asking when i ask about fitting an alternator?


In Topic: 1995 Fiesta, locking problems...

i had a similar problem with my 2000 fiesta. in the end it was a little corrosion on the locking mechanism itself. im not sure if its the same problem but if the key isn't turning at all, it could be that? a new lock isnt too expensive, the only downside is its a seperate key so ultimately u'll have one key for the door and one for the ignition! try taking the door panel off and having a look at the mechnism, might just need some wd40?? may not be the same problem but thought id put it out there!
