Re: COVID19 Lancer Prep

I disconnected my battery as I won't have a reason to drive the car until they relax the social gathering restriction. Will do a monthly voltage check and top up if required.

Re: what brake pads r u running?

For those who are cost conscious, I recently installed Bosch blue line pads at the back of another car. They are much cheaper than the other usual name brands. I thought they would be made in China but it say made in Italy on the box. Seems to work fine so if you don't work your brakes hard, somethi...

Re: New Evo x hood

Looks great! On the 2.0l n/a with heavy rain would this cause any issues? I used to remove the slat in the vent to improve air flow but have put it back in. Sometimes I hear somthing slipping on engine start after parking in the rain. I assume the because the drive belt is wet. The driver side vent...

Re: Rear middle seatbelt locked up after 2 days...

I have a hatch back and that has happened to me years ago in the middle rear seat. if you take off the plastic cover for the belt hole, you can use a long thin rod to push the locking mechanism next to the wheel and release the belt. From memory, if you look into the mechanism, you will see a lockin...

Re: Looking at a 2013 Ralliart Lancer

For SST, only use transmax dual, ford or OEM fluid. Someone used penrite and the box died soon afterwards. As for interval, depends how you drive the car. Ford recommends 60K for the focus and Mondeo. I give the car a squirt once a week and I don’t get stuck in stop start so I did mine at 45K with t...

If you are first owner and your log book is up to date, don't you qualify for the 10yr, 150K drivetrain warranty?

Re: Have you ever lost a brake pad?

Re: How to kill a 4B11 engine

Girls often treat a car like a television. Switch it on and off. Too bad she doesn't have a real man in her life to prevent her from bumbling into motoring disaster. How much is a recon engine, 3k fitted?

Re: Help buying Ralliart

Oh and the 2nd issue is if you're ever thinking of getting a tow bar for a small trailer then you can't with the RA, the SST is not suitable and they just don't make a tow bar kit for the RA.

Re: Help buying Ralliart

Rather timely about having a maintenance reserve to pay for repairs, in case you haven't seen the replace transmission thread.
