  1. I too was freaking scared to remove the mirror-glass just like you. but atlast was too tired of the yellow lights hence just crossed my fingers and popped it out. Lol worked like a charm. However don't want to do it often, as scared it might ruin the internal motor or the fixtures holding the mirror might loosen overtime.
  2. Hi Jamey, I too have similar thoughts to fit in some Titanium-X headlights for my '12 Mondeo Titanium. I don't want to buy £300-400 worth lights and have them sitting like a duck in my garage; neither i fancy hacking into any of the things (not the car nor the headlights). Hope someone has carried out this swap, and comeup with a followup. Cheers Jrom.
  3. I have a black Mondeo mk4 with Pitch black rear Privacy glass; and was really itching for the full black-murdered-out look hence tinted the rear tail lights and headlights. The tail lights were a bit of handful bugger due to the odd shape. I would say give it a shot keeping some things in mind: 1. Patience, you will definately need it. 2. Use some lighly soapy water as a lubricant. 3. Always use more material than you will need for the task 4. Use a hairdryer or a heatgun if possible; but don't overdo it. Hope that helps.
  4. Hello Everyone, Just joined the club, very happy to be here. The car in consideration is my '12 Ford Mondeo Titanium 1.6 TDCi (all stock, engine & electrical wise) which I have owned for just over 2yrs and it just clocked 106K miles. The 1st Issue: After a month of owning the vehicle I noticed when stationery if I turn the steering wheel in any direction then the headlights dim slightly but its noticable; also if I keep the blowers of full blast then they aswell tend to dim, everthing tends to remain/act normal if I stop turning the steering wheel. During all of this the media player the I took the car to the Ford service centre and they say everthing is fine (i.e. the alternator charging, the battery health) and didn't have a solution to the fault. The 2nd Issue: Even after a long journey, the start-stop on my car just does not work; It did work once on its own but it was in a single drive. I know it works because recently when the media-unit buttons on the steering wheel stopped working and i got it replaced. The workshop had to disconnect the battery and hence that might have resulted the car's electronics to reset; luckily the start-stop function worked for 1-2 days and then everything was back to usual (the start-stop function stopped working). Not sure if these isues are interlinked or not but I can change the battery even though the Ford Service centre confirmed it was fine hoping that it solves the issue. But can you suggest if can I install a battery with some extra oomph so that it doesn't lack power if I upgrade over to Xenon headlight (from the Titanium X model) in the future (which i am hoping to do soon 😁). What Battery and specs would it be? Thank you for any suggestions and solutions. Jrom.
