  18. I'm thinking of putting air con into my 1.8 Diesel 55 van. Has anyone ever done this and if so, how easy was it? I've got the air con unit from inside the engine bay, that bolts on top of the heater blower. Also stripped the wires off a petrol zetec to give me an idea of how and what. However nothing can replace experience. So I'm relying on someone out there to help me.!!!

    Hi from west wales. Just bought a mk7 62 plate transit 350 with 76000 on the clock. Was a 9 seater with small loading area but I've removed 3 seats and shifted the ply lining forward to increase the space area. Wanted a van for ages. First thing in gonna look into gettin is some bars for the front n sides n kit it out with led's Looking forward to seeing what mods your all doing or have done
  25. I bought the above this time last year. This week I took it to my local garage & asked for a price for an intermediate service, rear brake pad replacement, MOT & as it has just topped 80K miles, a cam belt & water pump. He asked why the cam belt change & I said as it was 7 years old, I thought it was time to change it. I had read that the water pump should be changed at the same time. He quoted £620 for the work including parts, so I booked it in. When I went to collect it, the bill had gone up to £668.00, but I didn't query it & paid up. When I got home I checked the bill & found a statement at the top "Vehicle has a lower "wet" belt which will be required at 100K, or replace with chain replacement. When I asked for the quote, I was unaware that the engine had a second consumable belt, should the garage have known about this belt & advised that it should be changed at the same time as the upper belt? I have emailed the garage asking why they didn't advise me, but as yet haven't had a reply.
  26. Hi all,I recently bought a pair of rear coil springs which I thought needed replacing at m.o.t time,however the mechanic assured me that the ones already on were fine,but when driven on our poorly maintained public roads the poor fiesta bangs and I feel maybe I should replace them afterall.I have a mk4 2001 fiesta flight and have limited knowledge of this sort of thing so was just wondering how easy/hard a job it will be with just standard tools,jack etc.Any useful info will be grately recieved many thanks!
