      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. Hi I appreciate I can ring around and I definitely plan to but I was hoping for some recommendations from people who have had a good job done at a reasonable price. I am definitely looking for an independent garage as the labour rates at Ford's will be very dear. I am open to getting the parts myself first or if an honest garage doesn't add on for parts and just charges reasonable labour rates then that would be easier still. I appreciate your response though.
  2. Hi all suspect my 130hp Mondeo Diesel needs a new DMF not urgently currently but its noisy and I have already had the fan belt and tensioner replaced. I like the car so would like to keep it as I cannot afford anything considerably newer or younger so better the devil I know it has been excellent otherwise. Can anyone recommend anywhere that is good value to get the DMF and clutch kit replaced? I definitely don't want a single mass flywheel as despite being cheaper I know it can make for a rough ride. I also want to replace the clutch kit etc whilst the gearbox etc is out and also again I understand you can lose refinement leaving the original worn plate in. I also want decent parts like LUK or original parts I have heard some people saying they were charged 5 hours labour at £40 and others 8 hours at £50 so there is a £200 difference there so if anyone can recommend someone from experience who has done a good job on their car at a reasonable price it would be appreciated. Looking for somewhere in the London/Essex area perhaps Kent as well. I really appreciate any advice anyone can offer
