      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. Dedicated Ranger Forum

    me too -awaiting acceptance
  2. Hid H4 Conversion Kit

    wouldnt bother now. Non-standard HIDs are an MOT fail now! Osram Nightbreakers are a very good bulb upgrade over standard.
  3. Underfloor Guards?

    I have been thinking how I can prevent any other thieving scroat just rolling under my Ranger and nicking my cat again! I have thought about a cover/guard over it! Anyone else done this? Maybe the 4x4/off-road people do it? Who would do such guards? (I prefer the idea of a plate/guard rather than one of those s/s wire locks)
  4. 07 Bumper Removal

    oh - and dont take it off, or put it back on, in the cold! The plastic clips shatter! I have 8 broken bits of plastic now!
  5. Some thieving scumbag tosspot has nicked my cat! Apparently this happening a lot! Loads of room to just roll underneath and simply cut the pipework between the flanges! 5 minutes and job done! 3 in the Durham area, and 6 in the Castleford area recently! (Guess the dealers I have spoken to!) The thing is - I have been quoted a massive range of prices to replace it! Dealer prices have ranged from £800+vat to a horrifying £2300+vat! (I also have a price from an independant garage that I am going to keep t myself for fear of ridicule, and other comments such as 'you can't get them that cheap!') So - no more parking it on my drive. I will park it on the road where everyone can see it!
  6. 07 Bumper Removal

    turns out I was just being too gentle - a first for me! There are indeed fixings in the lower inner-wing area, but they are push-fit clips that just need pressing a little! 10 seconds of pressing, and the bumber popped off! So - a combination of a couple of M4 bolts in the wheel arch areas, two M6 bolts underneath, two M6 bolts at the top, and a host of plastic clips, a little wriggle at each end pops them off! No need to remove wheel arch liners or headlight units! :(
  7. 07 Bumper Removal

    I have been trying to get my front bumper off, without success! I have managed to get everything off, but it is still fixed at the ends, under the wings, in the back-of-the-headlight area! I have been on for ages trying to get the thing off, but I have given up for today/this year! There doesnt appear to be anything obvious holding it on, but there definately is - and I cant see it! Any ideas before I break something? (You would think that a vehicle of this size would have loads of room to work in, but no, its just as bad as my Nissan in this instance!)
