  1. Yes that’s my intention, I’ll take locker door off rub down clean and re spray in a grey colour. Doesn’t have to match as it’s only the front locker that’s grey.
  2. No bought it this January private sale. paint was flaking a bit on locker but got worse this year. No signs of repair, grey plastic inside n out. thanks.
  3. It’s plastic cover on locker at front and looks like a grey paint with clear laquer on top. Water got in at the top and is now peeling every time it rains. I think the plastic is grey but sprayed with a protective laquer. The paint above the windows is on aluminium.
  4. Hi all paint or laquer coming off front locker? Also discolouration above front windows? 2014 van out of warranty of course. anyone had same problem, may take locker door off rub down and spray again over the winter. Any suggestions welcome, thanks. Photo of paint above windows
  5. Please see my post from yesterday thanks They offered to put it on a dyno at no extra cost but after viewing the dash cam footage lost confidence in the company. Can you recommend these tuners in Yorkshire?
  6. Well after viewing my dash cam footage and seeing it took two technicians all of 30 minutes to remap with a 5 minute test drive. They stated they wanted it all day it was there 5 hours. Towed to Wales last weekend couldn’t tell any difference in torque or power with car un hitched, I did notice the fuel consumption terrible. They state it improves fuel, power ,and torque. Anyway got it reverted back and a refund, so no need to inform my insurance after all. Again it didn’t work on my Mondeo but it may work on other cars. Next time we part exchange I’ll get a motor with more power and torq
  7. Thanks, who’s going to prove I didn’t buy it with it in? I have had 41 years accident free, I don’t expect to have a visit from the insurance police in the near future😊
  8. Thanks for the information I need to make the gap smaller, the tool in the link looks like it widens the rail?
  9. It pulls in 6th at 57 mph at @ 1.5 thousand revs, hills and starts from stops it don’t like. If I don’t like it they do a 30 day exchange with money back, company gets great reviews and my Son has a fiesta ST loves it. The remap does not show anywhere so I will not be telling my insurance any excuse to put the price up. Diesel, clutches last ages on Mondeo mark 4, I hope. Up rating the brakes F & R to Brembo.
  10. Well after my son got his Fiesta remapped with great results I’ve booked my Mondeo in with BHP in Burnley. 138 BHP to 176 BHP torque up to 420nm. Towing to Wales next weekend so let you know how it performs. Just towed back from Cornwall with 4 in car + 2 dogs, didn’t struggle but didn’t like 6 th gear.
  11. Hi all just come back from holiday and our first time in a newly purchased used caravan from a private sale back in January. We got everything with the van including an air awning & awning puller tool. when used the awning seems to come out of the rail as if the gap is not uniform all the way along and near the top back of the van awning rail is mis shaped. I didn’t use the puller as I think that is what as damaged the rail. Is there a tool to straighten or make the gap smaller so the awning goes in but doesn’t come out? thanks
  12. Thanks for all the remedies I had to take the top off and clean the float it was clogged up. Not a pleasant job but all working now.😊
  13. Thanks all, I’ll take it out tomorrow and post back.
  14. Hi all, Thetford C260 toilet red light came on after emptying tank instructions say needs emptying but tank empty? never done that before. Checked wiring seems ok. Bottom of compartment full of water? Dried out re fitted but light still on?
  15. Did you get a kit to remap or professional job. Local firm BHP want £299 to remap mine. Was it worth it? Can you tell the difference? Thanks
