  1. 1. Buy an elm 327 cable with switch. Just an example https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F163455279124 2. Install Forscan on your laptop. 3. Read fault codes. There's plenty instructions on the internet. 4. Post here. I suspect egr valve. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. You need to check stored codes. Invest £10 in an ELM code reader and use with a forscan to check codes. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. You would have to remove the coil on the injector so there is a high chance of contamination. This requires slide hammer and a special adapter. I would use it as a last resort. Try to wiggle it left and right first. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Most likely a poor connection in the passenger seat connector. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Pipe wrench on the injector. Try to turn it left to right while pulling it upwards and gently tapping on sides. Be carefull with the plastic top. Don't damage it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. You need to resolve the problem with the fan first. There is a purple write coming from the plug on the fan. This wire breaks often in the wiring loom that goes from the fusebox in the engine bay usually on the first branch. I can't remember now if it connects in the fuse box or if it goes to the BCM but you can remove the air filter box and trace the loom to check the first branch from the fuse box. Undo the trunking and check for corrosion, especially for a green powder. There should be a lot of topics about this issue. ECU recognise lack of communication with the fan and will not start regeneration cycle so any other repairs will not cure the issue.

  7. 2008 models don't have vapourisers. You will have to force regeneration of the DPF but I'm not sure if your test equipment can do that. Otherwise run it in 3rd or 4th gear at ideally 3000 revs for 5-10 miles but warm up the engine first. When you turn a/c on, does the fan kick in? Often it is the fan failure ( rotten pink cable) that prevents DPF regeneration and clogs up the filter. I have seen few where mechanics replaced the whole exhaust system just to see the same problem again in few weeks time. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  9. What about different fabric of a facelift seat? It's not possible to fit an isofix to an existing prefacelift model. Only a swap with a facelift model as mentioned above. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I'm sorry, you are correct. I thought that you are referring to focus MK1, which in long run can cope with max 125-130bhp. Yours can be tuned to max 150, but I don't know how the DMF and injection system will cope with that as ford used different parts in different models. This engine is no longer bullet proof due to wet belt between the crankshaft and fuel pump. It used to be chain, but ford decided to keep it oiled but used belt cassette instead, hence many belt failures. Injection system is now better than in the old Fords (Delphi), but the EGR is even more of a pain and as I remember it is part of the intake manifold. Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  11. There is a very lengthy discussion about "performance" filters but the main bullet points are: 1. Power or flow increase is none in stock cars (stock= standard turbo, intake, exhaust). 2. Performance filters should be washed and keep moist. Many people found that liquid is deposited over time on the MAF sensor falsifying readings. K&N claims that their liquid does not impact MAF but they agree that most will. 3. Most "induction kits" suck hot air from the engine bay reducing stock power by few %. 1.8 TDCi is an 8 valve engine so I'm not sure how much you want to achieve. I've seen 125bhp but that's probably max you can realistically achieve. Could you explain why you have purchased a 1.8 to spend money to upgrade power instead of buying a 2.0 or 2.2 TDCi? No, this is not a sarcastic question. I'm just interested. Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  12. "performance" filters often require special liquid to work correctly. There is an ongoing discussion of impact of this fluid on MAF sensor causing incorrect readings. I've seen a test of three filters : performance, new and used (2 year old). Impact on performance ? None. I would check if all plastic covers on the air box are installed as those boxes don't normally suck leaves. Cars that will do that (C4 as a prime example) will usually have filters with additional fabric underneath. Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  13. What year is your car? Models before 2008 (including 58 plate) are fitted with mono wiring loom and modification of the wiring loom is required to stream music! Sent from my XT1650 using Tapatalk
  14. I know that this thread is very old and the author didn't come back to state if he resolved it, so I hope the following will help others. Ford between 2006 and 2010 was using very cheap and thin wiring, so it's common to see corrosion on stress points. If you look at the fan control module, which is on the back of the fat (aluminium box with 2 plugs) there is one purple cable. This cable often corrodes or is damaged. It usually corrodes in the trunking running in the beam under the radiator, so it's a good idea to check resistance between the plug on the module and the ECU (for diesel models it requires drilling of the snap bolt to remove the security cover). Here's the most common area where this cable fails: https://mondeo-mk4.de/index.php/Thread/11612-Fehlermeldung-P0691-Kühlerlüftersteuerung-Kurzschluss-nach-Masse/
  15. Don't want to sound harsh, but what if you are wrong and this bloke is waiting for a new set of £300 seats that will not fit? I'm sure you know that back seats from MKI hatch won't fit MKI estate without modification and even with that modification it's not a perfect fit. I am also very interested in this topic, but want to be 100% sure before making any decisions.
