Re: New 'stricter' MOTs...

It is my understanding that even with the old MOT rules if the car was deemed "dangerous" by the MOT tester it would have got an off the road notice and could not legally be driven no matter how much of the old MOT was left, I should have said in my original post that if the car fails on a non "dang...

Re: New 'stricter' MOTs...

Re: Crank pulley bolt problem

In my experience once a thread has picked up it's game over,it's a weird phenomena no amount of force will undo it but it will do up again,not really a feesable option but the only way i can see to save the threads in the crank is to drill the bolt out.

Re: Rear door handle

I had exactly the same problem with my drivers rear door on my estate some months ago,i wish i had changed the door lock mechanism when it was just "playing up" and openong on occasions but it failed shut totally in the end.The door card was reasonably easy to remove with the seat base removed with ...

Re: Suspect rear wheel bearing problem

I had a mate who owed me a favour did both the rears on my car a while back,all i was getting was a droning noise,not knocking etc.I managed to source 2 genuine hub assemblies from ebay and as far as i know it's just a matter of removing the centre nut and pulling the old hubs off.You'll need to mak...

Re: Mondeo 2.0/2,2 tdci

The Titanium X Sport came with red stitching as standard i think and 2011 onwards the bhp was raised from 175 to 200 although some say the 175 is a better engine

Re: Mondeo 2.0/2,2 tdci

I'm starting to get used to the fuel consumption vs the performance it has and the tax is £195 so it could have been worse i suppose,it's got 61k on the clock with 7 ford main dealer stamps in the book so hopefully (fingers crossed) things that needed doing have been done,it's obviously got a dpf wh...

My 110 has had a solid flywheel for the last 50k miles with no issues what so ever.
