      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. Help Needed With 2002 Tdci

    Cheers chaps, I'll have a look when I get a chance. Even if I can't fix it I can turn up at the garage and tell them what's wrong.
  2. Help Needed With 2002 Tdci

    Hi guys, this is my first post and I need some help. I am a Brit working in Spain and I drive a LHD 2002 1.8TDCi of indeterminate mileage (long story). I have a problem with my aircon and the local garage has failed to rectify it. My aircon works fine in the early mornings or when it is cool, turning the car into a vertiable fridge. But when it is hot, or after the car has warmed up a bit it trips off. The lights stay on but the air briefly smells slightly musty and then only ambient (hot) air comes through, although the fans remain running. I have had it regassed and I guess that since it works well (when it works), gas is not a problem. Once it has tripped off, it will not reset until the next day (if the weather is cool enough). So what is the issue? How can I sort it. My guess is a sensor fault? I have been told that maybe a blocked pollen filter could be a part of the problem - I don't know for sure. (Where is the pollen filter and how do I change it?) Garages here are very unreliable and unhelpful and the car has been in 3 times with no fault found!!! Cheers in advance. WW
