    grease caps

    thanks for the info, I suppose grease cap is an old term but why no dust caps covering the nut on the front wheel hub, surely there is more dust from the brake disc than the drum, can the same caps be fitted up front or is there a reason not to?

    grease caps

    just wondering if anyone knows why you get a grease cap on the rear wheels but nothing on the front ones, I intend to run steel wheels without trims and thought about fitting caps to the fronts to keep out water and dirt, is this a good idea or is there a good reason not to?

    Orange engine shaped light on

    I'd get your local garage, or at least someone with a code reader, to check it asap, in case it could cause any internal damage if you continue to use it, it has come on for a reason, if you can't get the codes read then check your handbook for details of why it might have come on, might be something easy to fix now but could be costly later if left.

    Headlight help

    generally people suggest putting the headlight in your oven for 10 - 15 minutes, glass side down and then the glue softens and melts and you can carefully separate the glass from the housing, never tried it myself, seems open to all sorts of dangers with burnt fingers, and then you need to reglue the glass back on, general advice seems to be silicone but not too sure if that would work, personally I would buy a cheap pair of aftermarket ones, or even some secondhand ones, from ebay or amazon

    what type spark plug

    put some platinum NGK's in about 3 weeks ago, only driven around town and upto about 50mph on dual carriageways but not noticed any difference, but at least they should last 3 times as long as standard ones

    Drivers side door lock & boot problem

    the boot lock works on an actuator when you use the button or key remote but a cable when you physically use the key, do you mean it doesn't unlock with the key remote or with the key in the lock hole next to the numberplate?

    what type spark plug

    The standard plug is a copper nickle type, has anyone fitted platinum or iridium plugs and had any good or bad results? I know the 1.4 is a very basic engine and probably doesn't need anything special but the price of these other plugs seems to not much more than the nickle type now so was wondering if they were worth a try

    New clutch and dmf fitted

    been following this topic on here out of curiosity, just Googled it and noticed GSF Car Parts sell a DMF for a Fusion TDCi for about £400 and also quote the same Ford part number quoted on iantt's post above?

    Boot cover sagging

    mine had a lump of polystyrene that held the tools and sat on top of the space saver and was flat for the carpet to lie on top of, but ditched that and have a full size spare now so that now supports the carpet

    condensation in rear lights

    I am having problems with condensation in the rear light lenses of a 60 plate car, is this is a common problem and is there a gasket or seal that I can replace?
