  1. Can the bearings on the tensioner be replaced or do you have to replace the hole thing Thanks
  2. Any one had a Ron box on their tdci I'm confused with what number I should be on for maximum should the arrow point at 0-4
  3. Not done much with the focus for a while but Got round to upgrading the side light and number plate light with LED and what a great little upgrade they are much more modern
  4. Where are you getting your remap ? any review and are you getting it on a Dyno some thing I would like to get my tdci
  5. I've seen Mk2 st twist the drive shafts and create vibration on acceleration mainly big torque is your car a 2.0 tdi
  6. Pagid gets my vote for stock road brakes can't go wrong
  7. I think the stock turbo is quite big the head has the flow problems I think 150 BHP is maxing out
  8. Standard power 114 but with 13 years of crap in the inlet manifold you probably only have about 90 the first job on the tdci is looking at the egr and manifold next just make sure everything is working properly check the map sensor pipe hasn't split and all the boost pipe's are good and check the cam belt has been changed only then think about getting more power also the fly wheel are that great on the 1.8tdci so be careful not to over do it I've got a ron box on mine think it's running about 130 but never rolling road it
  9. I think they look for play in the steering it's not really bad but there is a little movement fingers crossed
  10. It's not bad But on another note I think my driver's side track rod end is knocking Hopefully it will pass the mot next month and I can get it done after only just had all the tracking sorted as well
  11. My low mileage 56 plate 1.8 tdci always felt jerky even when trying to drive smoothly I thought it was a bad gear box mount or it was because the diesel is a old design and very crude engine ? However after having my clocks re soldier it has felt much smoother and far better to drive Does your jerkyness get more noticeable in the summer or hot days ?
  12. Don't go mad with the degreaser just maybe one spray at the start as the gunk is quite sticky I used a long flat head drag it out and wipe it on a rag you can't see in so take pics as you go and you will see how much you are removing When you have removed the big bits use a microfiber cloth and a bit of spray to get the rest Don't push it back into the manifold as can cause serious problems with the turbo Also don't forget to take off the battery for a while for the ECU resets Good luck
  13. Best is to remove the manifold and give it all a good clean but I think getting it off is a real pain I used some degreaser and a flat head to drag most of it out and a rag just be very careful not to push it into the manifold or could cause serious problems Also when finished tack off the battery for a while to reset the ECU
