    Hello all, I've installed in my car (2007 Ford Mondeo MK4) an aftermarket navigation unit running Android 8.1. I've installed it correctly, connecting also the CANBUS decoder thing which came in the navigation package. The problem is that the steering wheel controls don't work. The navigation...

    I have a 2012 Petrol 1.6 Sigma Ecoboost. This may seem a dumb question, but hope you all can bear with me here. I checked the manuals and these show there should be a Steering Pump Filler Reservoir to poor in steering fluid just in front of the radiator reservoir. But I can't find it...

  6. Drivetrain (Mk5 Mondeo)
    Hi All, I recently bought a 2015 MK5 Mondeo 180. Really impressed with the car, love it. However, have found a niggle. When I steer I can feel a notchy type of clunk, it is very mild and most certainly comming from the airbag area. Does anyone know what this might be please?

  9. Suspension/Wheels/Brakes/Steering (Mk3 Mondeo)
    Hello all, A couple weeks ago I made a topic talking about a problem on a steering rack hose from my Ford Mondeo mk3. Today I got the tube fixed, the mechanic fixed/welded the tube that was damaged and the steering was less resistant, it was very stiff before. However, the humming noise that...

    Hello folks, My steering rack have a long time problem and I want to know what options I have now. More or less 6 months ago I detected some power steering fluid under the car. I searched for the leak and a little fissure on the supply hose for the steering rack. It was provoked by some...

    hi guys im new to the forum and would love some advice. I went to put my new steering wheel on last night and once it was on, the column cover was rubbing against the thing behind the boss kit.

  12. Ford Galaxy Forum
    Hi Just gone from a 2006 smax titanium 2.0 litre diesel 140 bhp (190,000 miles) to a Galaxy 2012, 2.0 litre 163 bhp titanium. The steering seems light, even on motorway / speed. Coupled with the (seems to me) much softer suspension compared to my smax titanium, I feel like the car is jittery...

    2011 Fiesta petrol. Can anyone help/advise please? I picked up an advisory at my last MoT, "noise from steering". The tester noticed it when moving the steering wheel from lock to lock. He couldn't put his finger on what it might be. If the car had a moving bearing at the top of the front...

    Hi I need to remove the steering rack on my Mk2 Mondeo Verona 1.8i Zetec model year 2000. I've removed the mounting bolts and disconnected the track rod ends, flexible coupling to the steering column and the power steering pipes so the rack is now loose. My Haynes manual says to withdraw the...
  16. Mondeo Mk5 General Discussions
    Hi, Had a 2015 Mondeo Titanium X 2.0 Ecoboost for about a week now, steering ruins the car, okay when on lock, but when driving in the straight ahead, steering feels vague, heavy just off centre, as if power steering is against you not with you, are they all like this? Thanks John.

    Hi all I have recently purchased a 2008 Mondeo TDCI with 44000 miles on it. Within a few weeks 'the' loud whine began. It had the power steering pump, reservoir and steering rack replaced under warranty thankfully. However, since then the steering won't self centre. If I turn left or right the...

  20. Wheels In Motion
    Is the rack the most likely culprit here, or are there other (simpler, cheaper) checks/replacements which should be done first? And, has anyone else had the same problem? Any advice will be appreciated. Mondeo Mk4 Estate 2.2 Diesel, 08 plate. The following symptoms appear when stationary or...
