  1. Thanks dan you just saved me a lot of stress 👍

  2. You don't have a MAF so its not that ! Get the codes read and reset, a code reader or USB/Bluetooth OBD device is a good cheap investment if you want to do it yourself.
  3. Don't use grease or any lubricant on the plastic bearing. Should you play around with the TCU, never select reverse gear first off. Always select a forward gear so make sure you work on it where you can drive it forwards afterwards.
  4. Disconnect the battery when bleeding brake system with ABS. Just the battery ground is sufficient.
  5. GEM configuration is required for 3/5 door models, you can do it using FORScan with extended licence. As for GEM type, a Cx GEM would have been the correct one to use but they are rare. The Dx type has double locking / alarm in addition to remote cl but should work without issue, again looks like you can turn off double locking with FORscan.
  6. There are 4 GEM types fitted to the Fiesta; A - vehicles with manual unlocking B - vehicles with central locking C - vehicles with central locking and remote control D - vehicles with central/double locking, anti-theft warning system and remote control Letter is second from last digit of the GEM part number. Easiest way to check if you have RCL (type C or D GEM) The interior lights are dimmed on and off with the GEM variants Cx and Dx.
  7. Could be relay or connector. Relay is K45 and fuse is F65 on the attached pic.
  8. Its an LED and attached to the cluster. Would be worth removing the cluster and checking that the led hasn't been covered with tape or blu-tak, The cluster might have LED's that are unused which you might be able to unsolder and swap over.
  9. The resistor is usually mounted next to the fan, does the fan have a 6 pin connector connecting it to the wiring harness with only 2 wires in it ? Resistor is only if you have A/C, not sure for Focus's but the resistor was removed from Fiesta's around this era so fan was just a single high speed fan if A/c was installed or not.

    wont start

    Check for 12 volts at fuses 14,15,16 and 20 (key does not need to be in). Do not remove the fuse from the fuse-board, just probe the metal pins ether side of the number printed on the fuse. Also check fuse 38 (as above) with ignition key in position II
  11. Looks like a standard 80's-90's alternator, three different current rated ones fitted depending on engine and features. The attached might be of some use. Good luck. mustang.pdf mustang1.pdf mustang2.pdf mustang3.pdf mustang4.pdf mustang5.pdf mustang6.pdf
  12. I would go for the shift actuator mounted on the front of the gearbox first, and the TCU / clutch actuator if that doesn't fix it. The TCU clutch actuator is the box mounted by the inner wheel arch.
  13. Agree with Kieran, if your burning oil replace the plugs as well
  14. The shift actuator is a known problem and there is a detailed fix here I have done quite a few and its not difficult. The TCU and clutch actuator is a combined unit and again there is info about it on various other posts. As you have seen, there are companies offering to do the job for you if you don't want to do it yourself.
