In Topic: Mk2 - P0359 Coil Faut!

I see your model is a 1.8TDCi which, being a diesel, doesn't have coils so are you talking about a different car?


If it is the TDCi the hissing could be a split boost pipe.

Hi Wayne, I'm glad you fixed it so easily and that it wasn't broken inside the rubber gaiter. That would have been a lot more fiddly to fix.

The most likely cause is that the wire has fractured inside the rubber boot where it passes from the body into the tailgate. This is a common weak spot on most hatchbacks and estates, not just Fords.


I recently noticed the high-level brake light on the wife's estate wasn't working. This turned out to be a fracture and I found two other wires where the insulation had cracked and also the rear screenwash tubing was cracked in two places.


Not sure what you mean by 'front and back' - there aren't any on the front numberplate.
