Hello! New user here, Question about keys

Over here in the UK a 2001 would have certainly had RCL.

If it were me, I would just buy a cheap remote and try to program it to the RCL, if that works get a nice one for cloning.

Puma Black Register.

Only Ford spoilers for the Puma were Evo and F2.

Dealers offered the MS Design kit as an aftermarket option.

Any parcel shelf differences between years

I didn;t think there was any differences between the parcel shelves :shock: Anyway 2000/2001 X and a 2001 02 Thunder should be the same floor pan and parts I'd have said!? I'd have thought if there were any differences (still don't think there are) it would be between the really early models and the...

Gear Knob 389/1500

It is 2 posts to start using the messages. Should be working.

Welcome Tody, nice little item you have there, these are quite popular among the enthusiasts (some people known to have more than 1)

Good luck with the sale, I can't help with a value.

Anyone know this car?

There were quite a few that ended up being 2002 registered. I heard rumours of even 2003 and 2004 but as you say 2001 was the last time they were built.

Fan Blades or Spokes?

I prefer the fan blades to the 9 spokes personally. I owned two standard Pumas and they both had them :thumbs:

Not to mention they are super easy to clean.

Hi, don't know it but it certainly sounds nice. I note the cambelt is quoted in miles, it would be worth checking the age of it as the interval was reduced 10 years to 5 years.

Seats !! Help !!

Hi Pat, welcome. The seats should be the same actual size but the bases will be different because there were two different floor pan layouts. You would likely also need to swap over the seat belt pretensioners since they are unlikely to be compatible. The earlier cars did also have electric operatio...

Puma coolant issue

The pattern parts have been known to be quite hit and miss, I'd probably start by ringing your local Ford parts counter. They are used for Fiestas and KAs too I believe so in theory should still be readily available. Not sure how comparible this price is now but here's a genuine one on eBay https://...

Puma coolant issue

You need to find exactly where it's leaked from. The top offender for a coolant loss like that would be the heater control valve located up at the back of the engine bay because over time they are known to become brittle and snap.

Failing that maybe a damaged radiator?

Considering a Puma - do they *all* rust?

I think at this stage in their lives unless you are buying from a real enthusiast then you can expect some level of rust. You just need to check the cars out carefully when you're looking at them.

That passenger footwell leak

Top right of that second picture is the main wiring grommet. This is the most common area to leak in to the passenger footwell.

I believe the recommendation is to try reseating it before pasting it with sealant.

Have you checked the tone ring whilst changing the sensors? Maybe one has been damaged or corroded? Welcome to the site. Yes, sound like ABS. Check the sensor to tone ring gap. This behaviour, grinding to a stop is usually a sign of misaligned or slightly damaged tone ring (few notches are bent in)....
