      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. Stiff gear change

    Thanks I'll change the oil and see If It helps.
  2. I bought a 98 Verona 1800 recently, two careful owners service history and only 56000 miles, It's In great condition so I'd like to keep on top of things If I can. The only thing I can fault It on Is selecting second and reverse gear, when used for the first time second gear Is a bit stiff to engage but gets easier after a while, reverse Is a bit stiff to engage permanently. It's not really a problem but I cant see It getting any better and you do need to wiggle the stick and sometimes use a bit of force. Is this a clutch problem or does It sound like the linkage. I have a garage and manual and I've done a bit of mechanical stuff In the past, does this sound like something I could tackle myself or something more serious. I was paid off recently so DIY would be my best option...........Thanks.
  3. Noise behind headlights on a mk 2

    Thanks SY99, It was the motor, although the headlights are stationary the motor keeps making a noise I found If I keep adjusting the height I can find a position where the motor stops making the noise. Luckily the height It's quiet at Is OK so It will do till I can look at It properly........Thanks.
  4. I know this question was asked before but It didn't get any replies so I thought I'd try. I've noticed a noise behind the headlights when the lights are on and the engine Is not running, Is this normal. It's like a pulsing buzz.....Thanks
