  1. 7Zap should help you in finding it. https://ford.7zap.com/en/car/
  2. Hi Bannko, If you're still offering the instructions to add sat nav to sync 2 I would be grateful for them 🙂 I am picking up a Kuga with sync 2 and no nav shortly.
  3. If I remember rightly you'll need the clockspring from a Mk3.5 for cruise control to work.
  4. Best way I've seen it described with these engines is you can have eco or boost but not both. With mine, I average around 35mpg on my journey to work which is around 10 miles each way. My partner in hers on a longer commute gets around 40mpg. On a couple of long motorway journeys from Essex to Liverpool and Wigan I was showing around 60mpg according to the onboard computer.
  5. I would expect not many people will have attempted to change the wet belts themselves on these mainly due to the significant cost of the tools required to get the correct torque settings. If I recall, it was upwards of £500 for the correct tools alone. I cleaned out the oil pump on mine a couple of weekends back and although it wasnt a quick job, it wasn't as difficult as I was expecting. I probably made it more difficult for myself by not removing the downpipe from the turbo completely and rather tried to move the sump around it. When I cleaned out the oil pump on mine
  6. I can't remember exactly how to get to it as it's been a some time since I replaced the module in my car but it's behind the heater controls, below the radio. In Lukes thread in the link below, the module can be seen in the first photo where the heater controls have been removed. It's the black box behind the wires. https://www.fordownersclub.com/forums/topic/101067-mk3-prefacelift-sync-2-8-touchscreen-upgrade-how-to-guide-with-pics/
  7. The Varta one you've linked to I believe will be too long, I'm pretty sure it's 278mm needed for the length. Battery megastore is worth a check and also tayna. https://www.batterymegastore.co.uk https://www.tayna.co.uk/tools/battery-wizard I have a Yuasa battery in mine which has given me no issues since fitting around 3 years ago.
  8. Thanks Wilco that's great. I shall see what I find!
  9. Hi all, So I think I've got the blocked strainer problem on the oil pump, car seems to take some time to build pressure when cold so thinking the strainer is blocked and needs cleaning out. Car is on 78k miles. Only thing I cant find as my Google skills are letting me down is the type of sealer to use when refitting the sump. Any suggestions? Anything else I should be looking out for too?
  10. Excellent, I thought that was the case but wanted to be sure! Thank you!
  11. Excellent post and one I may have to use in the future... One question I have is, can this be done if the car has standard manual heater controls and not climate control? Only asking as every post I've seen where this has been done, they've all had the climate control haha.
  12. The only other issue I'm aware of is that the interior and instrument cluster light dimming will no longer work but other than that I'm not aware myself of any other issues. One of the other things is the colour scheme will be different and won't match the radio displat but having read your thread I see that you've upgraded to sync 3 so that won't matter.
  13. Would agree with Steevo. I would imagine focccus is most likely not compatible with the MK3.5 IPC. Forscan or ucds will be your best bet. A MK3.5 Module should bring back the the chimes as I understand it
  14. At least it passed the mot 🙂 I'm thinking of doing drls myself, where did you get yours from?
