  1. 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

  5. David starsmore

    hi and welcome to ford club id suggest if the wiring and fuses look good that maybe your stalk is faulty
  6. 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
  7. spoilers

    plenty of groups on facebook, make sure it comes off the right shape car spoilers off of 5 doors only fit the 5 door spoilers off the 3 doors only fit 3 door
  8. Stereo

    disconnect from power source and reconnect should restart it then it should begin to countdown from 1 hour
  9. 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
  10. 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

  12. two possibilities maybe the thermostat housing seal has failed, maybe the water pump is on its way out

    Progress has ground to a sudden halt Sunday at 8pm a gang of youths who have taken to hanging around in the ginnel that runs behind my home decided to set fire to the trees and brush behind my fence which consequently spread to my fence and almost my garage and my neighbors proprieties, nearly killing my polecats who's hutch is up against this fence i spent hours in a&e being treated for the burns i received rescuing them so my hands are just about useless put a stop to things till they heal up So I bought myself a few more 17" diamond cut rs7's to cheer myself up 8 total now
  21. Mk2 1.6 2005 PCV hose and valve

    if the valve isnt faulty id leave alone its a pig of a job and if yours only has the one pipe then thats all you need variations in engine size/spec lead to variations in the pipework setup just get the one already fitted to your car and unless you suspect a valve fault i wouldnt bother replacing just do the hose and keep motoring
  22. Paddy's gti

    Got the seals for my throttle body so got them in rebuilt and fitted it
