Hi Sinisa
From memory the cooler pipe has only push fit with spring clip fittings which would suggest that it's on the low pressure side. If I remember I'll take a look tomorrow.

My Puma 1.7, more than a year on (A works in progress)

Hi Alex Air leaks on the intake side are pretty easy to diagnose as when you rev the engine up the revs hold for a little longer than they should before returning to normal so I'm pretty sure that wasn't the problem but it seems alright now and as a 1 in 2 year occurrence I'm not particularly worrie...

My Puma 1.7, more than a year on (A works in progress)

Hi Alex Tickover means idle ie the engine running by itself at low rpm. It does seem better now I've replaced the engine coolant temp sensor and I've already cleaned the MAF and checked the plugs but I suppose time will tell. The car is off the road at the end of this month and won't get used again ...

Clip that holds the front mudflap on

They are the same ones for the MK6 fiesta (2003-2008) and are still available, from memory there are eight in the full set to do all the flaps.

My Puma 1.7, more than a year on (A works in progress)

Hi Alex It's not particularly the occasional EML light that worries me as the cause behind it, and I could tell a few weeks ago that the tickover was ever so slightly off so there was something not exactly right with it. The p0420 code indicates a faulty cat but it could be lots of things so it's ju...

heater hassle

Hi Mate
Possibly a cheapo ebay HCV. The genuine Ford one is the only one that works and lasts. The only other thing it could be is the heater control panel but still more likely to be the HCV.

Hi Alex I have an intermittent P0420 code which has only come up yesterday 2 years after I fitted a new Cat. Before with the old second hand FRP cat I used to get it about 3 or 4 times a year. I have turned the EML off using Forscan and it's ok now but I'd like to get to the bottom of the problem. T...

Good luck with it and well done at the event, oh and if your car is a later 2 lambda sensor one you can get some more speed out of it by removing the torque limiters in the lower gears. Have a search on here as it involves something like disconnecting the speedo or speed sensor.

Have a look, when you get the chance, on the rim where it goes into the spokes, there are some blocks cast into the rim along with the make of the wheels.

Your wheels look like mine, are they BSA's? If they are they are only the second set I've ever seen including mine and if you are missing one of the centre caps I have 3 available.

I went to the Squires Cafe all Ford show today and once again it was a good show apart from all the revving and popping from all the Focus drivers (and some Fiestas), when will they realise it's getting really old! https://i.postimg.cc/k4p6M8f5/230920183869.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/Y0L4v9sz/23092018...

Warning lights.

Hi As Dai said the noise was the ABS pump self testing. It's probably an ABS sensor that's gone down and if you haven't got access to a reader you can do a lesser check on the sensors using an ohmmeter across the plugs of the sensors. From memory you should get a reading of about 1000 to 1100 ohms o...

Retrofitting recaro seats **HERE WE GO AGAIN**

Yes if you use the original seat pretensioners the light should go out but the trouble is they don't match the mounts on the seats as there is a stop as well as a thread holding the pretensioners where they need to be and the position of the stop is reversed on the different pretensioners.

You might also have to swap the seat belt pre-tensioners over as well which is a lot of work but, hopefully, if your car is early enough you will get away with it

Just change the remove the water pump pulley before taking off the drive belt as it's much easier to take out the water pump pulley bolts with the belt in place as it clamps the pulley from spinning.

Hi Sinisa
Just to let you know, the panel you worked on is known in English as the slam panel as it's what the bonnet slams against when it's closed.
