Removing the Bonnet Plunger from Ford Puma (Fiesta MK4)

Hi Mike Sometimes you can prolong the life of the bonnet switch by sticking things on the bonnet which makes the plunger go down further (no idea why but it works). If you want to replace the whole switch (expensive) you need to disconnect the plug to it which is under the slam panel about 6 inches ...

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

Thanks again Paul :-)
The BSA wheels are an Australian brand I think which is probably why there aren't that many sets knocking about.

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

Hi Paul Thanks very much for that. I try to improve it every year if I can but it's not perfect as most of the panels require buffing but that should get done before Ford Fair. As for the wheels they are made by BSA (not British Small Arms, another company) and Peugot fitment. Another contributor on...

Puma 1.7 Rebuild Mk II

Hi Ed
Instead of buying a MK6 Fiesta Diesel buy a 1.25 petrol instead. I've had a 1.4 Diesel and know the problems they have and the 1.6 has problems with the turbos as well. The MPG is ok and the 1.25 Sigma is unburstable if a little boring. It's my everyday car and it's cheap as chips to run.

Cheers Paul, yes most of the shows I go to are Puma-less other than mine apart from the Ford shows at Squires which usually have a few there. If you're not busy on Friday pop down to Thornes park in Wakey as there's the big early evening car show but I'll be there with the Westfield club so you'll p...

I went to a show at Notton today with the Puma and although I was sat with some Westfield friends most of the time the Puma got quite a bit of attention. I have noticed one thing about the people that look which is first the surprise at seeing a Puma at a classic car show, then a smile as they eithe...

Puma 1.7 Rebuild Mk II

Hi Ed I've occasionally had a look at your post and the problems you've had and wondered if you've kept the standard throttle body with the TPS untouched. It might be worth trying to fit that back on the engine rather than the mondeo throttle body but if you have removed the TPS from the original th...

Hi Paul
No idea of the cost as the first one is not fully completed and IVA'd yet but they won't be cheap and if you tried to buy an old original GP4 Escort you'd be paying a lot of money as well. Have a look on their website and give them a ring tomorrow.

I went to a classic car show at Locke park in Barnsley today. It was another well attended event with lots of varied and nice cars and bikes. The weather could have been better as every time the sun went in it got quite cold. I got situated next to a couple of high powered cars but still I got asked...

window motor/regulator

If you use bolts they will catch on the carriage that takes the window up and down. When you find suitable rivets make sure that the squashed bit at the back doesn't protrude too far and catches on the carriage as a bolt would.

Hi James I'm just under the impression that he saw you knocking about in the FRP around Dodworth but I could be wrong. I still haven't made a Newby Hall meet yet but I will eventually. This year it was the National Kit Car show at Stoneleigh which clashed with Newby but Stoneleigh was pretty cool so...

Nice one James I though RM's Ex car with 13K would have taken some beating but you've managed to do it. I honestly can't see this one being beaten now.... but you never know. This has to be a trailer Queen now.

Hi Simon
This is a common fault but the seals themselves may still be available as James (XAF) just got me a new pair from Ford. Be aware though, they aren't cheap!

Yes, if you can get a piece of the original leather off the damaged panel you can get it sent to Furnitureclinic for matching and then they can send you out the necessary paint etc to match any panels you have renewed in either vinyl or leather.

Hi Sinisa
Good to see the latest original part Ford HCV used, it should last at least 5 years.
