  1. Asking on behalf of my brother who has a 57 plate mondy which is driving him mad: Constantly gets message on info display says "Transmission service required." after stopping engine and restarting everything o.k. Has used reset message procedure - light goes off but returns next trip - VERY occasionally will get an orange EML which also resets No fault codes detected by his local garage Has had oil changed Sensor changed Problem persists Any advice/ideas anyone?
  2. Parasitic Battery Drain - is an absolute pain in the a@*se to rectify You will need to try and ignore what you think may be causing it and test everything to find out what really is doing it This video may help you as it clearly shows what you need to do https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YhC8xj5vHUg Good Luck
  3. Easy to find e.g. https://www.ebay.co.uk/i/401525445728?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=710-134428-41853-0&mkcid=2&itemid=401525445728&targetid=516783247564&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=1006736&poi=&campaignid=7643169303&mkgroupid=78014891181&rlsatarget=pla-516783247564&abcId=1139576&merchantid=9861194&gclid=CjwKCAiA3abwBRBqEiwAKwICAxXyrPzPMfB3tLbcTL5WaTsuUDt8y0aKWgkIzwL_fPkJRbrTBXvAzxoCLJ0QAvD_BwE
  4. Great thanks - have had Airvit (very similar to Heko) on my Landy without problems was just looking for re-assurance on the Edge as there is much less leading edge glass to seat the deflector into - will update when Santa has been
  5. Mine is 2017 Vignale - no remote start and has same key units as @eddieK
  6. Really cheap on my local Facebook marketplace - nothing to do with me - just passing it on - good luck https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/2935386586471922/
  7. Loads on FB marketplace https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/103119296394478/search/?query=235%2F40%2F18 winter&vertical=C2C&sort=BEST_MATCH Use Shiply to get shippers bidding to deliver them - had a set Aberdeen to Gateshead for £36
  8. I understand Santa is bringing me a Heko set - will update if/when fitted
  9. RESULT - make a nice change to hear that someone has found a garage that knows what they are doing and did a good job
  10. Condensation needs damp air and a lack of ventilation - so you need to identify where it is coming from: 1. Is it residue from wet feet etc? that is not drying out in normal use - use your demister more or crack a window open when driving to force out the damp air 2. Is there a leak somewhere? - feel around UNDER the carpets - do they feel damp or is there any evidence of water pooling or excessive rusting in the lower parts of the floor pan? 3. Examine windscreen, window and door seals very carefully to see if any have failed - you should be able to see tracking marks if water is regularly getting in somewhere, it can often discolour interior trim 4. Check around grommets and cable seals where they pass through from outside - especially in the bulkhead, boot and floor areas 5. Have a good old smell - damp causes mildew which will give off an odour So basically you will have to do some crawling around investigation to track down the source - if and when you find a suspect keep looking - there may be more than one on an old car - good luck with that Finally, when the cause is found - do something about it - it will only get worse
  11. Go into onscreen 'settings' and look for a menu item with 'software' mentioned which should take you to a screen with details of the software your car has and what versions they are
  12. Are you using the Ford UK site and no spaces between the letters and numbers? https://www.ford.co.uk/owner/resources-and-support/sync-bluetooth/update#/
  13. Join MACT facebook group - plenty of posts on there about this https://www.facebook.com/groups/MACTFORDEDGE/?ref=group_header
  14. Go to the Ford motorcraft site and follow the menus to owner information -0 you should get a list of asbuilt info for your car - you will need your VIN to access it https://www.motorcraftservice.com/Home/SetCountry?returnUrl=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.motorcraftservice.com%3A1402%2FQuickGuides%2Fpubs_police
