    I think you will find it's fuse 29 (15 amp) in the dashboard fusebox.
  4. That's not always the case, all mileages can be checked from the service records and MOT certificates. 40k in 13 years is quite possible. My car is only doing about 4k per year.

    Mk7 Heated Windscreen - Drivers Side

    It seems to be a common problem on most Fords. Have a look at the windscreen connections under the scuttle for corrosion or breakages.

    Setting The Temp Gauge To Celsius

    No probs, it's easy to occidentally mess up a setting without realising you've done it.

    Setting The Temp Gauge To Celsius

    Scroll through the digital display used to display trip distance, until it displays the outdoor air temperature. Locate the stalk next to the digital display. This is the stalk used to reset the trip distance to zero. Press the stalk inward for five seconds. This will cause the unit the temperature displays in to change between degrees F and degrees C.
  10. I guess you guys are treading on dangerous ground here. :D

    As others have said, it may just need the connecting plug on the back of the radio re-seating.

    RE. gforce. Yes it should be the same, but I just have a curious mind, also any recommendations of where to obtain the part could be country dependant, but it does say "Location London" -_-

    Stereo Control Stalk Playing Up

    It could be down to the cold causing condensation in the switch, if it continues to play up and as a last resort, try to squirt a shot of WD40 into the switch.

    Nightmare - Major Advice Needed!

    Short answer to a long post. Put the original battery back on the car and take the car back to the garage, it's their problem to sort it out.
  23. I agree that a diesel engine will do more miles before it dies, but it's not just the engine type you have to consider, other considerations should be; who put the miles on the car how it has been driven in the past, what parts have recently been replaced and service history ect.
