  1. This adapter seemed to do nothing, If I connected with either, or both Fakra connectors I get the same reception , when connecting the blue wire ( to Antenna amp/ Blue wire ) this made no difference
  2. So I just removed my Stock Head Unit ( CD6000 ) from my Mk4.5 Mondy , to replace with a Android Touchscreen with FM radio . The car has two RF facra leads going to the old HU but the new HU has just one Antenna ( ISO ) input . I read that some cars have dual antennas , or a single antenna with a booster - So I just purchased a Dual Antenna Adapter ( attached )which supposedly adapts the dual FACRA to one ISO Antenna Connection and one Voltage tap connector ( powers the booster ) Before I wire this and blow something , I just wanted to check if I am correct in my thinking ....
  3. I believe that is the dual antenna connection , they are used for FM and DAB , I have the same issue , looking for adapters ...
  4. I am trying to find some documentation on bodywork removal ( bumper ) for a Mondeo MK4 ( 2014 1.6 Ecoboost) . The bumper is damaged but , I dont know how to remove . Ideally need a to see a schematic/ diagram . I can see there are Haynes manuals but , not sure if they include diagrams/ instructions on panel/ bumper removal [Edit] I just tried ETIS but it errored out ! . Is it £44 to register though ? Can someone send me the bumper pages for a donation ?
  5. I too would like to know how to remove the bumper , It seems there are several parts latched together ( grill / bumper/ sub bumper ) , My Mondeo was previously a CAT N and repaired . Its apparent the front bumper was replaced , however the front bumper grills and trim are coming loose/apart after some months of ownership .. Ideally I would like to check pages in a service/ or assembly manual . I may need to due some gluing and/or plastic welding . Its a 2014 Graphite model
  6. Hi all I have only driven the car twice , I went out again today , I did the stationary clutch test , no problems there , car stalls immediately wen pulling away in 4th . I also depressed the clutch , gave high revs while coasting, then letting clutch out yet , no sign of slipping , engine brakes accordingly . I noticed again , after a long night sleep , on my second drive , switching on my more astute senses , that I can feel light pulsing vibration all the time but only occurs when driving ( car moving ) . If I am stationary and in gear , slowly releasing clutch , there is no vibe or judder at all strangely . Also I noticed the vibration increases when cornering or going uphill more . The vibration is only enough to feel in the ball of my foot and toes , it is not felt in whole leg or above sole of foot really . I really hope I am just paranoid , or over sensitive - I really love the Mondeo , such a lot of car for the money, lovely ride . However I do not remember feeling any vibration in my Fusion clutch pedal , though this maybe a different type of clutch ?
  7. I would like to add , that the private seller wrote and signed a receipt offering refund if there were issues with the car, I guess this is covered for 30 days consumer rights anyway . However I would rather keep the car , as I like it . I am just curious if/what work would be involved to to prevent it getting worse
  8. Just purchased a ecoboost Mondeo Mk 4 ( 2014 ) for silly money , it has only 60K miles on it . Very happy with car , I did not see anything wrong during test drive before purchase . However car was in London , and in hindsight not many hills or open roads to fully test as thoroughly as I would have liked . On my way back from buying , a good 30 mile long journey , during a drive on an open windy road 'A' road , going uphill about 60MPH . I noticed some faint pulsating on the clutch when shifting down a gear , during the uphill drive at speed . This has not been noticeable in any other condition on flat roads or motorway . In the interim I will do some more thorough testing , to see if the clutch is slipping . I dont think this could be slipping . I guess only a mechanic can really tell if an issue . Should I be worried , will this get worse , should I address it ?
  9. Forget it , the MOT garage got the lights wrong , they said the nearside foglight weren't working , it transpired this is the reverse light - doh
  10. I cannot seem to find anyone that had this issue , ok here goes : I took the fusion 2003 for an MOT yesterday , it failed because of the rear fog light is not working ( I believe its the only fog light on my model ) , at some point water had got to the contacts and possibly caused the problem It transpired that the bulb is fine and the fuse is fine (tested bulb in another hole) . I put a fluke meter on the bulb contacts and on the wire terminal of for the fog , there is no voltage going to it . The fog light indicator works on the dash , if I take out the fuse , the light goes out . I assume the fog light must be on a relay , yet there is no 'click' so maybe relay is faulty ? However according to this page from the Haynes manual here , there is no fog relay Can anyone help? Perhaps there are wiring diagrams available for this
  11. Yeah you were spot on , funnily I found the pipe just before reading your reply but you were right As shown , looks like it has been stabbed , strange So I will probably wrap this pipe with some Silicon Fusing tape , as I I cannot immediately find this size tube Thanks
  12. Hi People I have the Fiesta 1.6 MK6 Engine in a Ford Fusion 03 . The car Idle always had a fluctuating Idle since I got car earlier this year , the car was purchased with around 50K miles on in March this year; the car is 2003 Fusion 2 model . It had got progressively earlier last month, the Idle suddenly started hitting 2000 RPMS on the colder days , recently it has got worse with the needle now resting quite consistently at 2200 RPM . It seems ok when I put the car in gear and start driving but, it has become very irritating when in traffic . Strangely I can counteract the High revs by using the AC and heaters which drops the idle to around 15000 RPM . Strangley there has been no engine light or codes to give me a better clue This is the first Ford Car I have had and is otherwise a good car . I have been researching causes of this and just wondered if anyone could chime in here or share your experiences : Air intake/Vacum Leak - THought to be most common cause of high idle but, not sure where excatly this could occur or on on which pipes ,there are pipes everywhere, so would like to narrow it down if possible T-MAP Dirty- I am getting some flexidrive tools tomorrow and will remove and clean to see if makes difference , though this is usually thought to make the car revs die down . I had managed to clean the throttle body , it was slightly dirty but ,this did not make any change . If anyone could share their knowlege here it would be much appreciated . IT is getting cold here and might have to start using my Pocket rocket instead
