    Sticky: Re: Why the Mondeo?

    if anything, the only point to address would be that the brake pedal and the accelerator are quite touchy. I prefer them a little softer like I have on my AU Fairmont. It just feels like it's...

    Sticky: Re: Why the Mondeo?

    Recently purchased a 2016 model Mondeo TDI Titanium, dealer demo from the local dealership. Wife and I were deciding on what car to get and I was liking the Mazda 6 in the TDI. In earlier years I...

    Re: What is wrong with my air-conditioner???

    well, the mechanic seems to want to charge me $1500 to take the dash off, find out what's wrong and play with it.

    Was thinking of doing it myself instead. If I'm going to pay $1500 it's going...
  5. Re: Is there anything to be careful of when removing the centre console?

    it's dead simple pulling it off and putting it on.

    remove the 6 screws, put the shifter into first (so you've got a little room to maneuver it) then slide it up and backwards.

    If you've got...

    Re: What is wrong with my air-conditioner???

    thanks - and that makes sense.

    How would I try to do such a thing - is there a particular vent or hole that you go thru to get at this one to clean it?

    Or would I be better to just send it...

    Re: What is wrong with my air-conditioner???

    I'm having a similar problem but I don't think it's the vacuum lines. A friend who has the same car had a problem where the ac had been gassed recently but on a hot day it seemed to not work...

    Re: What kind of camera have you got?

    60D is a better camera - it's got a few more features, and can shoot faster and store the shots faster. I'm pretty sure the CCD is also a bit better on the 60D. I prefer the 60D over the 600...

    If you've got water coming out of the boot lid cavity, obviously it's filling up in the boot lid cavity. If you look at my first post, I had water coming through the electrical housing (running...

    I think the idea of the grommet in the air box is a good idea.

    Only thing that's preventing me from spending the time to do that is I only get backfires when I do something stupid - and I...

    Re: Water's getting into my boot!

    it's pretty difficult to get into that boot cavity to clean up that rust.

    I drilled the holes and drained it out. then a few days later, I painted it over with one of these rust conversion...

    Re: Yet another AUII central locking problem.

    The common solution, if you read through the various posts in this site is that the locking mechanism has broken - it's generally not an electrical problem, but a physical problem. Generally the cog...

    Re: Another central locking problem

    I'd say one of your locks is faulty. You can pick one up from a wrecker for about $60. But you've got to figure out which one it is first... My bet would be the drivers door...

    Well, just to end the subject, I went out and got the 215 60 R15's. Ended up getting Kuhmos for $100 each, fitted and balanced. Got about 65k out of the last set so I figure I'm not doing too...

    Re: Which tyres should I get?

    Maybe they changed rim size, but mine are a stock standard Mag rim for the AUI fairmont and they are 15"

    The ones that are on, as I said are Khumos and are 215 60 r15 - these seem rare, but I...

    Which tyres should I get?

    I don't want to start a war of words on different brands (but may well do so) but I've got a couple of questions.

    First up, I'm in for a new set of tyres very shortly.
