  1. I know the answer is in the name of the part but where does it go and why? Is it there to catch any leaking\spilt oil on the off chance it happens? Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  2. No problem. No, the unlock is done by computer software like the garage has. It can be done anywhere because it is just a laptop, so you could meet someone in a carpark or their home etc. It's about £150 The bluefin remap is something you buy from Superchips and is about £335. You get sent a handset which you plug into the cars diagnostic port - above the drivers right knee - it scans the cars ECU and you upload the file back to Superchips, they then look at it and email you the 'map' which you download to the handset. Then you plug it back into the car and press go, the handset does the rest. It is removable too, and can be reinstalled after. If you can upload and download a file for email then you can remap your car. If not you can find a stockist and visit them which is cheaper because you don't keep the handset and you can't reinstall it if it gets wiped during a service for example. The 2016 models won't have sync3, they will be sync2 so won't do AA or Car Play. Bluetooth streaming Spotify is adequate on sync2 but obviously you can't use your Google maps or Waze. A Tit X will have the digital clocks. If I were you and you are looking to get a 150 unlocked then don't worry about either engine power wise look more at mileage and spec\extras. Get the CAR you most like and the engine can be sorted, you won't be able to add extras if you know what I mean. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  3. Hi The 150 and 180maew the same engine with 'different' brains. You can unlock the 150 to run at 180 and then remap it, I know a few guys with UCDS that can do the unlock. Then it's a case of getting a bluefin remap from superchips and that's it job done. The clocks depend on model, all zetecs are analogue and the rest are digitial so can show kph if desired. From memory you can change the units of measurement on the analogue display so that your fuel consumption will be shown the way you want it but you would need to read the inner numbers on the Speedo. I am an admin on the most active MK5 Mondeo page and we have several members in N.I and R.O.I. why don't you look us up https://www.facebook.com/groups/693277794183606/ Jon Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  4. The mk4 may be different to the mk3.5 in relation to the plug position or if it isn’t even there (as so ‘helpfully’ pointed out above), but if it is there then it’s on the right hand side of the boot behind the small flap near the access to the rear cluster. There is a picture in post number 8 of this thread, which I’m guessing you have seen if you have read the post. If its not there then it isnt the end of the world as you can get a 54pin APIM adapter loom on Amazon for the rear of the Sync unit and just run the RCA cable all the way up. You will also need to activate it with Forscan and I’m not 100% sure if it is compatible with the mk4 but I think I heard of people using Forscan on the mk4 before.
  5. Found this one, hope it helps Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  6. I don’t have a picture right now, I’m in hospital and not with the car. I popped the boot release handle out using a plastic pry tools and drilled the hole just to the left of the button you press to release the boot. I did it dead central (front to back) and the view imo is just right, although my wife comments that the camera in her car had a more elevated view. My thoughts are that I want to see the bumper of the vehicle I am reversing up to and not the boot. I’m sure I can get a pic when I get out but that won’t Be till next week, i will check my phone for pics in the meantime
  7.

  8. Hi Sorry I've been away from my computer. I had to program the Sync unit using Forscan. I used a 52pin APIM adapter from Amazon as I didn't have the grey plug in my boot Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  9. Haha, there's me thinking he was going to drive to the garage with them loose. It didn't cross my mind to grease them up and tighten them again [emoji1787][emoji1787] oops my bad Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  10. I see it’s safe to loosen it off like that and then drive it to the test place? I’d bet if there was an accident then the police would ask questions and the insurance would be void 🤷‍♂️ I’d like to ‘ask the mechanic’ on his thoughts about this one. great idea for a topic btw Tom
  11. That would explain it then, I travel from Nairn to Inverness daily I like Parks in Inverness but there is so little competition that sometimes they just pull figures out the air. Can't complain about the service though Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  12. Hi I’lol keep an eye out for you 😉 not seen the Focus about though. Did you go to Parks or get lumbered with AC? jon
  13. The front plate is the one that is likely to come off if either one is going to, just due to the fact it hits the oncoming air. i would say that as long as their isn’t some tape on the back of the plate and the holder you will be ok. It has to be direct contact though
  14. They don’t have a leg to stand on @JAKE191
  15. What's the thinking behind private plates not being stolen? I can't see the logic in it, a plate is a plate. If they are going to clone a car then it really doesn't matter what the VRM is as long as it matches the car they have chosen to put it on. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
