  1. Mechanical (Focus Mk1)
    Hello, first time post I just bought an old 02 manual focus hatchback TDDI, it's in good condition and looks well looked after, drives well. The problem I have is at low speeds the brakes feel like they don't have any assisted power and I have to really stomp my foot down, at higher speeds the...
  2. Suspension/Wheels/Brakes/Steering (Mk3 Mondeo)
    I recently changed my rear brake discs and pads. One of the carrier bolts was rounded. Doing some research people advised to only use the genuine Ford replacement bolts so I called the main dealer who told me I can't buy them separately and will have to buy a new carrier with the bolts for £180...
  3. Suspension/Wheels/Brakes/Steering (Mk3 Mondeo)
    On renewing the brake push-rod boot and seal, which is the reason I did this job. You have to remove the pedals assembly bracket to get access, which I did in separate videos, so find them elsewhere on here or as linked on YT. Also the part #s for the boot & seal are in the YT description. No...
  4. Drivetrain (Mk5 Mondeo)
    I understand all Mk5 Mondeos have an Electric Parking Brake. Perhaps someone can explain how to get it to auto release. I have a manual gear-box and keyless ignition. When I get in the car: press clutch, start ignition, engage first, release clutch and apply accelerator. At the bite-point the...
  5. Suspension/Wheels/Brakes/Steering (Mk3 Mondeo)
    Hi All, Anyone got any idea what size brake pads I need for the front of my Ford Mondeo 2002 Estate? I've put my details into Eurocarparts and it's coming up with 3 different sizes (width and height - does the thickness matter?). I'm going outside now to see if I can measure but incase I get...
  6. Lighting (Mk3 Mondeo)
    The brake on the rear window is not working. I checked the bulbs and they seem ok. No broken filaments. I had water in the box of the light as it was dripping from the rear sprinkler. The lower break lights both work. The car is a Ford Mondeo 2005 Can anyone tell me what to check next or...

  11. Suspension/Wheels/Brakes/Steering (Mk3 Mondeo)
    I saw a video which says that you have to align the cut out notch on the piston (used to rewind it) with the small notch on the back of the brake pad when refitting. Is this the case? I don't see anything about aligning the piston a certain way with the brake pads on the wiki ford how to guide???
  12. Mechanical (Focus Mk1)
    This is my first Ford Focus Mk1, a 1.8 TDCI Zetec so I am not sure if its normal. While I was sitting at a junction with the engine running I had my foot on the brake and it slowly sank to the floor. The brake still worked as I was on an incline but it still concerns me. I have tested it again...

    Hi, I have a mk2 'S' reg 2.5 Ghia X. Any ideas why my dash now looks like christmas lights ? I have the brake warning light, ABS warning light and Traction Control warning light all staying on. They were intermittent a couple of times, but now stay on. With the age of the car,, I can't...
  14. Suspension/Wheels/Brakes/Steering (Mk3 Mondeo)
    Hi guys, I need opinions, I have just got my car back from the garage today as I had a sticky rear caliper and it caused the handbrake to stick on. They had freed it off about 6 months ago but for peace of mind I asked them to replace the caliper and brake fluid. My concern is that when I...
