    On mornings like today it's good to watch the knockers out in the cold scraping their windows while I just press the Quickclear button before going into full smug mode. Hallelujah praise the Ford!

    Using a cheap ELM327 and the Torque app it shows there's only about 6 degrees difference between the top of the blue and centre on the temperature gauge.

    My thoughts too Lost It. I've owned a few Mondeos and it's just a damn good all round car, if not particularly exciting. It seems to be one of those beasts that doesn't really excel at any one thing...

    Depending on which type you have, (Sat-nav/Climate control or manual A/C) it might be an idea to grab another control panel from eBay (usually around 20-25 quid) before ripping the dash apart to get...

    If you go with the ELM327 and the Torque app just make sure it's v1.4 or 1.5, the later versions won't play ball with our Jags, or most cars of that age.

    Cheers Alan, I think I know exactly which tags you mean, and I can see there's a good chance they'll pull through. I might try it with a forked spudger holding the tabs whilst prising the wood, I can...

    I used an ELM327 ODBII with the Torque App to test mine, there's a very narrow band on the gauge, 83 deg is just on the blue, 88 (where it should be) is slightly below centre. Changed both...

    Door Trim Removal

    I'm in the process of changing the wood trim including ash tray and gear surround to a dark birdseye maple and the only thing left is the door strips which I plan on vinyl wrapping. Does the wood...

    Here in Jag city they're a lot more common than Mondeos of the same age (there's at least three silver estates similar to mine within a few hundred yards of me). Not a Jag? Coventry begs to differ.

    My first car was a 58 Ford Consul, complete with vacuum windscreen wipers that ground to a halt going uphill. Youngsters of today don't know how lucky they are Motco :)

    It's not so much a common fault as an inevitability on the non HID headlights. There's plenty of videos and howtos out there on doing the job.

    The adjuster is almost certainly broken. Two choices, either fit a new adjuster (upgraded ones are about 20 quid on ebay), it involves using a hair dryer or heat gun to remove the glass which isn't...

    My gauge was just about moving off the bottom so I checked using Torque and an ELM327, when warm it read a constant 81 degrees, my OCD made me change both thermostats which took the gauge to bang in...

    Almost certainly the rubber hose going down from the EGR has either split, or more likely, popped the clip. Simple fix (if you exclude lost knuckle skin).

    I did my thermostat the same way last year Gambit, it makes the job so easy, mess free and with little to no coolant loss.

    Even better if you can talk the missus into doing the sucking.

    That makes perfect sense Jimbo, I've got one of those relays kicking around to have a play with. It's a much neater solution than cramming yet more wiring behind the ashtray/centre dash.
