Do Not Sell My Personal Information

Seats And Radio Reception.


Recommended Posts

A little while ago, on the morning we were going on holiday. I washed the car and vacuumed it. When I came to readjust the seat it wouldnt lock in place; I couldnt fix it and I couldnt drive it a few yards never mind the couple of hundred I was supposed to be doing. After an hour or two of fiddling I removed the seat; there was a one pence piece jammed in there which stopped the teeth locking into the holes,sorted. Lesson: Dont put anything small in your L hand pocket.

I have a 6 cd changer +radio.Ford 6000d EON Yes A Cd did jam, apparently common, removed the unit and released the cd, OK now. I have only had the car Four months (mondeo zetec S V6 2002 53000Mls) The FM reception is very poor. When I first switch on, I can usually get some National stations but all of a sudden they will virtually cut out, I can just hear them with the volume turned right up but they are distorted and faint. Local channels are better but the still distort and cut out now and again. AM channels are fine. It would not appear to be an area of poor reception as no other car radio that I have had has exhibited the same problems. Could it be an ariel problem? It is a wand, easily removable and the thread is clean. Any ideas?

its common for the ariel base to corrode and give poor reception, you will have to remove and check if this is the case.

:) Thanks for input I will try to clean up thread although it looks ok. If doesnt work, I suppose I'll buy a new ariel wand.
