  1. 1 year on, still all good?
  2. Isnt the speed in Waze the GPS speed - such that it will always be different to the car speed since the car speed, from the speedo pickup is always calibrate slightly over, to prevent a sticky legal situation for the car manufacturer, they err on the side of you going slower than you think so they can't be caught out with the driver getting a ticket based on a low reading.
  3. try this : https://www.multimac.com/p/multimac_1260_4_seater im going to get one for my focus, there is actually an even narrower one too that fits fiestas and similar. We have a people carrier, but sometimes I want to take more in my car.
  4. I had this on a car (not a ford) that was due to the manifold boost pressure sensor going duff, it was reading too high, so I was hitting a point where the engine thought it was over boosting and then would cut the power until the boost dropped back...
  5. @Postie123 Do any of those parts match up to a very late MK3.5? Andy
  6. You may be able to just obtain a new regulator module for your alternator, which can often be changed without removing the alternator from the car, and is a damn site cheaper than a whole alternator. Last one I did, was on a beemer, and the modules were about 30 quid, vs 400 for a whole alternator... Something like this https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ALTERNATOR-VOLTAGE-REGULATOR-FOR-FORD-KA-Fiesta-Focus-Fusion-Mazda-2/123602295145?hash=item1cc7455969:g:-4oAAOSwGq5cQwzL#vi-ilComp (this may not be correct for your vehicle - see my note below regarding needing the alternator model number, and ideally the number off of the regulator is helpful too) If you can find the alternator model, usually on a sticker somewhere, you can search ebay for a regulator module for it, often comes with the contacts and stuff in one piece, ideally get the regulator part number off of the old one, helps check if things are correct. Lots of the sellers are helpful, if your struggling to tell if its the right one, send them all the numbers and they usually work it out for you. The beemer one I was doing, was a bugger as none of the numbers matched up, until I searched only part of one of the numbers, and then confirmed with the seller, but it fixed my problem completely.
