Mk1 V6 - my brother in laws went a few years ago now. He visited the local ford garage and they said they had never sold one, ever :crazy:

Months later mine went and i bought one from a fellow MEG'er.
How unlucky, a year later, its gone again :nunu:

Anyone else had theirs go ? twice ? or is it just me ?

the reason they've never sold one is because of the amount they charge for a replacement.

there is a clock\coil spring inside the upper portion which sometimes dislocates from the housing! when it slips it will only allow the car to crawl in most instances - sounds like that's what you have there. tricky manual job to relocate it - but I've done it myself.

you'll need an allen key to open the unit, a pair of nose pliers and a couple of extra strong fingers to rewind the coil spring! save yourself a few bob & get stuck in m8. ;)

BTW: you look just like Rodders. :D
