      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Hi all My 2007 Mk3 has had a pretty sudden loss of brakes. I called the RAC and their guy came out. He checked around the wheels to see if there were any leaks and he said they were ok. He checked the brake fluid and had to top up approximately 200ml to bring it to the right level. He said the servo was also fine and this would leave only the master cylinder as the culprit. I see that a new one is in the region of £200 but I have seen one at a reputable car breakers for less than £20. It says it comes from a 2003 Mk3 without Emergency Assist. Based on this simple description is this likely to fit my car? Here's the link.... https://ops.carparts-uk.com/ops/traynors/details_popup.php?z=95b9ba5f
  2. W5W Bulbs

    What a kefuffle Got the headlights out, easy enough, but the replacement bulbs were a bit longer than the originals. The length of the wiring (or should I say, the LACK of it!) doesn't leave much room for manoeuvring the new bulb in. Took me 20 mins for one side and 30 mins for the other. A right pain but I got there in the end.
  3. W5W Bulbs

    Thanks Stoney. I filed a pin on each bulb and they fit perfectly now
  4. W5W Bulbs

    I bought a pair of W5W T10 LED bulbs for sidelight replacement. When they arrived I opened the bonnet and ...........what the heck.....how on earth am I gonna get at the sidelight bulbs to replace them!! Looks like an absolute nightmare. :-( Any ideas on how this can be done would be gratefully appreciated but please bear in mind that my dismantling and rebuilding skills could be assessed as '3 out of 10' ..... on a good day!

  6. Mk3 Mondeo cruise control problem

    All sorted now, thank goodness. Everything working exactly as it should.

    OK then, a bluetooth module for the existing CD6000..........are they easy to fit, where can I get one. I'd rather keep the one I have without the hassle of a new one that may or may not fit or look right.
  8. Mk3 Mondeo cruise control problem

    It was the fuse Now during my fuse fiddling I seem to have created another problem. My electric mirrors don't work, my clock doesn't work and when I start the car the outside temp appears in fahrenheit (even though it can be changed to centigrade by pressing the button, but that's a real pain every time I start the car). I have looked at the wikiford glovebox fuse layout. The fuse for electric mirrors is ok, there isn't one for the clock and the temperature thing...I don't know if that's fuse related but it never happened before i started pulling fuses. Any ideas folks!

    .....for a 2007 Mondeo mk3. I have the 6000CD unit but it doesn't have bluetooth for handsfree calls so if anyone has a good and perfectly working Sony one available with bluetooth please let me know. Thanks
  10. BE AWARE...another scam email out there...

    I should add that the one I got from the Nigerian prince was genuine enough. He's giving me £5m just for handling a gold transaction for him. All I had to do was give him my bank account details and now I'm just waiting for the cash to come through! lol
  11. BE AWARE...another scam email out there...

    My golden rule for emails is simple: If I've never had dealings with the sender before then I don't open it. No-one in this world is giving stuff or money away for free. And yes jace, even if it's from a seemingly reliable company source I always check the sender's email address before opening. More often than not it will originate in another country or it just won't look right. Any gov.uk department that says you owe them money or they owe you money will contact you by post even if they have your email address.
