    Hi I’m assuming your mondeo is a diesel, all mk3 mondeo engines be they petrol or diesel have a cam chain the diesel’s fuel pump is mounted to the front of the engine and driven by the chain so changing it means a new chain usually when the impeller on the pump goes it contaminates the fuel lines the injectors and fuel tank when my 54 plates pump went the quotes I was getting were close to 2k so I made the choice to scrap the mondeo and buy another car

  6. Escorts estate bumper van fitment

    The estate bumper needs to be cut straight down the middle and widened by around 3 inches notched to fit around the rear door hinges and a little more fettling to get it to sit right seen it done a few times

    bit of old sales literature (unfortunatley it was in french) listed the price in euros which was 18560 the conversion rate for euros back in 2001 was (1pound = 1.6euros) meaning that price in the uk wuld have been around £11600 in 2001
  8. Radio code lost

    Check your handbook if you have one if not you need to remove the stereo and get the serial number which will be on a sticker on the unit it will begin with either an M or V .. if it starts with an M i can get you the code if its V you'll have to pay either ford or there are people on ebay that can get V serial codes

  13. Crankshaft Pulley

    Hi there, the pulley isnt really a service pert ergo it doesnt have a stated life expectancy like cambelts but the general consensus by people is it should last at least 70k id say it will defiantly outlast your mondeo

    not a massive update but engine wiring is near done been modifying the standard looms to tuck them out of sight for aesthetic reasons
  16. David starsmore

    hi and welcome to ford club id suggest if the wiring and fuses look good that maybe your stalk is faulty
  17. Mr

    the noise you describe could be the level adjust motor had a similar issue on my car when they break they whir constantly (if your car has adjustable height lights) park facing a wall when its dark and adjust them using the switch chances are you will only notice the beam on the headlight that doesnt whir do up / down full beam i would assume to be a stalk problem

  19. Stereo

    disconnect from power source and reconnect should restart it then it should begin to countdown from 1 hour
  20. Stereo

    No it's not scrap by what you describe sounds like the code has been imputed incorrectly 10 times and has now gone into higher security mode you can only put the code in after that hour countdown has ended and you only get one shot if incorrect you have to wait another hour
  21. Satnav touchscreen broken

    Hi and welcome to Fordclub, if your wish is to attempt to repair your satnav yourself the part you require that converts your touch into a signal for the unit to read is called a digitizer start your search with that though i suspect buying a replacement unit off ebay / aftermarket unit may be the final option at probably 1/3rd the cost of fords quote Paddy
