      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      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. It says in the Haynes manual you must open the bleed nipple to release brake fluid from the caliper when rewinding rear disk piston (to fit new pads) becasue the master cylinder seals may invert! Surely brake fluid is always on the move up and down the piping, and what happens if you get a distorted disk. Is the a case of too much care! (as in don't use toaster in the bath). If the pistons are returned slowly to thier fully retracted position, is this incident likely to occur. Feedback appreciated. Tinhat
  2. Fuse - Cigarette Lighter

    Had the same problem ( Mondeo TDCi Gia X) Silly place to put a fuse box, also no spare slots for fuses. My 'blow was caused by unplugging a 12v to USB adaptor that was powering an IPaq Navigator phone. Anyway now carry a few spares.
