    Ok all l, for those who are interested to find out things are. got car back this morning, brake squeal gone, grinded the slight lip on disc. engine malfunction service now has been resolved by then cleaning up the vacuum pump and replaced vacuum pipe. s/s also resolved by then installing a new battery. The charged it overnight and when tested the test failed. So started up the car and the s/s did not light up. I turned s/s off and on and it stayed on and then did the s/s at traffic lights. so far I’m happy guy 🤞👍👍👍

    Redditch Zetec Edition Owner

    Good evening members. My name is Simon and i have just recently bought this beautiful 2017 plate Zetec Edition TDCI. As soon as i saw it on the forecourt of the dealership i instantly fell in love with the colour. Took it for a test drive and was smiling like a cheshire cat. It only has 27500 miles on the clock and is immaculate both inside and out.

    Dealer over filled oil

    It should be on the max line , not half way between min & max . They specify a quantity for a reason. As said the difference between min & max is normally 1 litre. So it needs another half a litre putting in !

    I'd go for B. The front white splitter not being there kind of makes the front look like a RS

    It was waxed...not any longer now they've covered it in TFR and dragged grit all over it with dirty rags and a drying blade. It's only local elections on May 2nd, not another general election until 2022! May seems adamant she's going to stay in now just to spite everyone anyway.

    Reverse Mirror Dipping

    Press and hold the memory button for the electric seats to complete that step of the process. If you don't have electric memory seats then there is no way to do it.

    Thanks Guys, I thought as much, just needed to have it endorsed by others. I still have time to look around to find a good deal. Apart from standard kit the only other mod of sorts is a dash-cam lol. These can actually reduce your policy value a little so its not a bad thing to have one installed now-a-days. Cheers and thanks to all … Kudos 2 ya!

    Back seat rattle / clunking

    That's what I was thinking Tony, it' probably just needs a very slight adjustment / realignment I must take a look at it soon, it can't be that hard a task, and it is something that may well reoccur at a later stage.

    Water Leaking into spare wheel unit

    Will be getting in underneath the black roof trims. Where the side panels and the roof panel meet it is covered with a bead of sealant from front to rear. Once the body shell is painted the black strip is attached over the top using double sided tape. It's common on the early build Mk7 for this sealant to crack with age allowing water to seep in between the panels and run into the boot area. My car was affected by the same issue, if the water is clean then this is more than likely where your problem lies.

    Gadgets Help Needed

    Spend a little time reading about Forscan. I felt the same with it when i first looked at it. But once you get to understand parts of it, you will be hooked by it. If you take to your ford garage they will not do it for you, they will use an excuse that they can not do it for you. Ive only been using forscan just over a month and made a number of changes to the car and its only cost me the price of the ELM which was under £20. The amount ive saved by making the changes i have would be in the 100's. There are plenty of spreadsheets out there for different ford cars (mostly usa) but the commands are the same on most models except the very brand news ones. Its worth looking at the forscan forum, there are loads of youtube clips as well and a good community of people out there if you get stuck including myself. Also i suggest you join the following facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/693277794183606/ Its one of the largest, if not the largest Mondeo Mk5 uk groups out there. Im on there as Gav Jarratt.

    Wiper sprey

    My guess here would be the other one to Tom: Pump. But it is only a guess. These washer units work by driving the pump one way for windscreen, and the other way for rear window. Just by reversing the polarity on the two wires to the motor in the pump. There is a little valve in the pump that is pushed over by the pressure from the pump, and blocks the flow to one or the other outlet. That makes all the flow go to one or the other. If this valve sticks, then the result could be what you describe. Removing the washer tank and checking the voltage applied to the pump could verify whether it is switch or pump. Also I suspect if it is the pump, then then flow will be a bit less if water is coming out of the wrong end, ie rear when switched to front, compared to right end, ie front when switched to front. I had to replace my washer pump last summer, it had flooded with screenwash due to failed seal between motor and pump. Water and 'lectric do mix, all too well, but don't work when mixed!.

    Was about to say about your radio code till I read further through. I think there's companies on ebay who can give you it. Car must start nicely.

    Just had to unblock again! So much easier when you know what you're looking for so thought this time I'd post photos, taken under the bonnet, of the soft rubber boots that with a bit of manipulation easily unblock. Hope this is helpful.

    2018 focus electrical problems

    Focus st line 1.5 eco boost. Pre collision warning flashes on dashboard and brakes are applied automatically, radio screen goes off when it feels like it, drivers window goes down when pressed to go up and now the heaters have gone off just blowing cold air out when on hot.
