    Hand brake

    Whatever you do, don't forget to pull that switch's hit and miss whether or not it flags up the fact the parking brake is off......

    That's what I found as weird as well....

    67 Plate Sync Apps

    I dont have an android so I'm sure someone will correct me if wrong, but i think he needs to download Android Auto from the play store, then just plug it in to the car. If it doesnt load, check the settings. Should be a button for Android Auto/Apple CarPlay preferences and just turn it on.

    67 Plate Sync Apps

    If he plugs his phone in he will certainly get Android Auto. There's also a Ford app, but all its really useful for is assisting with rerouting around road incidents. It does update your phone with the status of your car and mine told me there was a recall as well. To be honest, the app is quite flakey. Android Auto should be pretty good for him as it will include whatever music service Google uses, Google Maps as well as the Google now assistant. Should also be able to use Whatsapp (well, I can with Apple CarPlay) as well as text messaging (all dictated of course).

    Hey All, Latmobile's going into the dealer to sort out the rattle (which is driving me mad), whilst there I believe they are also taking care of a recall: RECALL Ford Mondeo Electric Park Brake Drive Away Release (992) Anyone heard of any issues with the brake system that's prompted the recall?

    Mk V Creaking

    Hey folks, Has any other MkVs developed a creak from below the central console almost underneath the gear stick. Its noticeable whenever rough roads or speedbumps are present (so practically all the time). If so, any idea what it is? Lat

    Sync Updates Now Online In UK

    Update went well, visually I can see there's been a wee change, probably mostly under the hood. Anybody got any decent release notes for it? (Release notes for a car....what an age we live in..)

    Extremely 1st world problem

    I actually had a Focus that had some really horrible greasy marks on the inside, a few weeks later it got a nasty stone chip on the exterior, when Auto Widnscreens came out, I convinced him to swap it out.......HATE cleaning windscreens :D Thanks for the advice btw
  12. After the Latmobile being buried up to her bonnet in snow a couple of weeks back, I had discovered the dreaded 'ice on the inside of window' irritant. I'm now left with an annoying watermark all over the interior windscreen. Cleaning the inside of a windscreen is perhaps the most hated task I ever have to do, I have been known to leave slight marks on the inside just to not clean it, but this is faaaaar too annoying...and distracting. Any recommendations for an easy to use (and we're talking VERY easy to use that requires MINIMAL elbow grease!!) product that delivers great results (with minimal streaking!) Another option is if anybody can do it for me.......Not asking too much am I....

    Mondeo Climate Control Not Working

    I had a similar problem on a Focus years ago, got it regassed by Kwik Fit and it lasted a day......took it back to the dealer & turned out there was a tiny hole in the AC pipe.

    Mondeo 2015 Sync 2 Updates

    Have there ever been Sync 3 updates?
  15. The Latman


    No probs, for what its worth, its been working perfectly since I got her back. I think its a case of Ford are trying to be too clever hampered by poor quality batteries. Everybody who's replaced the battery seems to be back on easy street again.
