  1. Front Drivers Side Door

    Hi, I'm having a spot of trouble with my mk6 02 plate van. I pulled up outside the shop the other day and as I went to get out the door wouldn't open. I've taken all the door card off and I believe the problem to be the cable from the interior handle to the door latch has broken, as I can still lock and unlock the door from the outside but I can't see a break as it's in the black sleeve. Does anybody know where I could get a new cable from or the whole locking mechanism? Many thanks for any help or advice in advance Lee Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC

  3. Escort Van Rear Brakes Change

    Hi Rich, I'll keep them standard then. I thought as I will be needing to change them soon I could swap them to disks. Cheers, Lee Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC

The brakes on the back at the minute are the drum type and have started grinding yesterday how much work and difficult would it be to change them to discs and pads or is it easier to keep them as drums. Thanks for any help on this matter. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
