Re: Windscreen Cracked

Hi Steve,
Had mine replaced late last year by auto windscreen through insurance. They did bring the wrong one first as it had a patch on it for the mirror to stick on. One week later got the correct one brown tint for a laser only cost £75xs hope that this helps.

Re: Polybushes

I replaced the rear ones last year with orange super flex ones and noticed a massive difference. So will probably change front ones as well. Don't know if they are worn as car has only done 53k but surely they must be starting to perish after all these years. Are they difficult to do.
Cheers Allan.

Re: Spotlamp wirering.

Check mine and the front panel does have the dimples in. Does anyone know where I could get a image of the brackets from so that I can fabricate a pair.

Re: Spotlamp wirering.

Thanks for that will purchase some aftermarket ones as genuine ford ones are going for silly money.

Re: Spotlamp wirering.

Thanks for the replies, the wirering that I refer to is the two plugs behind the front panel they the same connection as those that you come with the genuine ford lamps.will need to check if there is a live feed to them.

Spotlamp wirering.

Does anyone know that if I was to fit front spots using the excisting two spare plugs on my laser would I still need to fit a relay or is it just plug and play.Also could you tell me what the correct distance apart they should be if I was to fit round ones above the bumper.
Thanks in advance
Allan.

Steering wheel colour

Hi all,

Does anybody know what colour die is needed for a laser steering wheel and where I could get it as mine is looking a bit grubby and thought with the car being off the road it would be a good time to do those little jobs.

Cheers Allan.

Electric aerial problem.

Electric aerial won't go up or down, I can hear the motor running both ways but nothing happens. Is there any way to repair it as it is original.

Cheers Allan.

Re: Cutting out when hot

Will need to buy another condenser as the other one was shot as it would not start at all. Can't understand how it cuts out but starts straight back up at turn of the key.

Cheers
