  2. Yes should do I have the manual and it looks the same! All tthose links are for the solenoid and the first one is a Streetka breaking - just email him and ask how much. A solenoid is just a solenoid you could fit virtually any one with a bit of modding - Fiesta is the same as well i believe - Ford use the same pieces on many of their models as do many manufacturers. lol the motor is the solenoid - perhaps you be better getting a garage to do it dude! Its called a solenoid actuator or motor. Maybe its this you are looking for where there is a solenoid switch in the lock? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-SportKA-04-54-TAILGATE-LOCK-CATCH-MECHANISM-XS51-B43102-AC/172138503228?_trksid=p2047675.c100005.m1851&_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIC.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D39695%26meid%3D3aae00a22de943c2912d84124738c6f1%26pid%3D100005%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D291888769332
  3. You didnt look very far! http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-STREETKA-Breaking-For-Spares-1X-10-amp-Fuse-/142121777713?hash=item21171e3a31:g:A44AAOSwdU1W-GDW http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-KA-MK1-boot-central-locking-motor-/302105066581?hash=item4656dd7c55:g:bdAAAOSwH6lXRZlT http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-KA-1-3-2003-BOOT-LOCK-MOTOR-Central-Locking-Motor-/172354407870?hash=item28211f8dbe:g:yE8AAOSwnH1WWsaC http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-KA-1-3-1996-2008-TAILGATE-BOOT-ACTUATOR-XS5T432A98AB-FREE-POSTAGE-/222278296034?hash=item33c0d1a1e2:g:s2UAAOSwyDxXhM5V
  4. Want to remove the headlights to polish them up on the bench to remove the fogging from the plastic and take out some borken glass from an exploded bulb. Have removed the top bolt and the protection round the wheel arches to get access but i cant see any other bolts - is this going to have to be a bumper removal job and ramp job just to get the headlamp out?
  5. It just passed this morning with no advisories.
  6. My mate runs his own garage lol And he says the car is fine and I have been building cars since I was 18 so unless you are a garage time served mechanic I think I can rely on my own judgement! And I doubt i would find something as cheap as this heap of ordure! And this is a site for recommending car repairs not self righteous nobs to come on and give it laldy. Go take a !Removed! that will relax your sphincter!
  7. Drawback. Just like induction filters they actually dont do anything at all or negatively affect the engine; thats fact - all this horseturd about it increasing power the only thing it does is make you look like a boy racer f@nny who thinks adding coloured tubes to the engine makes it powerful and pretty but it just empties your pockets and does f**** all for the engine!
  8. I just buy all my parts second hand off ebay - cars dismantling or junkyards and ive always been lucky. Besides there is never a better Sunday out than rummaging for hours in old car junk yards or maybe I am just weird that way! Just got a fuel pump for £20 sold the old broken ones fuel level meter for £10 on ebay and it works perfectly so a tenner for a genuine Ford fuel pump in comparison to an off the market one for £100 and its solved all my engine problems so dont forget the old fuel pump it can cause a lot of things to go wrong. I guess it depends how much of a tightarse ye are and I am so tight i wouldnt give a ghost a fright and yes I am Scottish but we call it being CANNY! Tight as a gnats! But I always buy a round ! lol
  9. I have a Streetkrap and they are all the same once its done 60k or thereabouts all the serious suspension rust problems , alarm going off randomly due to hood sensor failure , fuel pump failure, lambda sensor failure , front drivers footwell swimming pool, ecu and more - if its got KA in the name they are a heap of badly engineered and cheap parts bag of sh*te! The most important thing you can have in your toolkit is an obd test reader - get a cheap obd900 on ebay for £20 then you can run live tests and check the obd codes properly. OBD fault finding is becoming a bit of an art - when you get certain codes they can actually relate to other faults and not what the code actually tells you is the problem ie the upstream sensor affecting the downstream sensor etc. Once you have plugged one get back to us and give a list of the error codes it pulls from your ECU! Your car is in limp home mode due to a serious problem. In order of possiblity:- Faulty spark plug or wire Faulty coil (pack) Faulty oxygen sensor(s) Faulty fuel injector Burned exhaust valve Faulty catalytic converter(s) Running out of fuel Poor compression Defective ECU I would go for INJECTOR, lambda sensor or ECU! Swap the injectors over and see if the misfire occurs on a different cylinder , that way you can be reasonably sure its the Injector or take it out and do a bench test on the injector its pretty easy to do! There are a few good youtube videos on testing injectors on the benchj! Good luck and remember to get back to us and let us know if you fix it!
  10. Yes I drove in Malcesine and Sorrento and roads are bad but not as bad as UK - UK is like battlefield of the Somme. Ben fatto almeno sai senso dell'umorismo scozzese! Gemelli
  11. Also check parking brake connections. http://www.jamesandtracy.co.uk/howto/how_to_fix_suspension_noise_clunks_rattles_clangs.html
  12. Check for stone entrapment its a common problem that isnt easily found! Springs! Ball joints and link rods - check em all but the sound sounds like it is coming from underneath the car! As I said you could get a friend to sit in the boot with either a stethoscope or other sound amplifier to pinpoint exactly where in the rear its coming from and it will be apparent immedfiately if its inside the car or outside but stone entrapment is a first check!
  13. Who said it was dangerous? Its a large rust patch much like a sill failure it isnt dangerous as i had a mate do a stress test on the rear suspension with a Newton Gauge and a professional haulage rack but it could possibly fail knowing the ripoff that 90% of garages are or more likely be an advisory. And I drive it like an auld granny once a week if im lucky to the local shops and back so im not exactly doing 100mph on the motorway dude! Some of us are unemployed and have to make do with what we have and cannot afford to do much else - just ask half the population of Liverpool , Glasgow or Manchester. It passed its last MOT last year with no mention of any problems from the guy that sold it to me! So many flappers around!
  14. Well if you put mor pertinent info in then we might be able to help - what is the noise - a scraping sound, a clicking sound , a squeaking sound? YOU COULD RECORD IT WITH YOUR MOBILE AND UPLOAD IT HERE SO WE CAN HEAR IT AND THAT WOULD BE VERY HELPFUL. You see people come on here looking for free help which would cost you £30 an hour at a garage and dont give enough info - most dont even post a reply to say if its fixed or not so we all get a bit fed up giving help without getting anything in return and me personally i just like to take the Jimmy Riddle now and again! Is it definitely inside the car or could it be the suspension underneath? If it was me I would stick the girlfriend in the boot and get her to pinpoint it when driving. I might also get the chance to watch tv without being interrupted if i left her in as well - BONUS! WITHOUT KNOWING MORE INFO IT COULD EVEN BE YOUR DRIVERS SEAT HAVING BROKEN OFF THE FLOOR RAIL - I'VE SEEN THAT ONE BEFORE ON A ROVER 820si.
