They use the dash covers/mats a fair bit in the US.
You never see them here in the UK, as the sun is not common and they are therefore pointless!

 

I've had a Dash Designs dash mat in The Volvo for the last ten years, in order to stop the cracks in the dashboard top getting worse. If I recall correctly, I had to pay $25.00 extra in order to have a RHD one made. Well worth it, though, as it's done the job admirably :)

It was sold here between 1995 - 2000 and from 2007 - now. Because the Aussie Ford factory has closed the Mondeo has replaced the Falcon.

Hey genial! Les Belges do like thier 'BD' or Bandes Dessinées (Franco-Belgian comics), even now ils sont très populaire.

I reckon je dois trouver myself one of those Bandes Desinées for the Mondeo, unless you know le vendeur has another one?

This was in Asda Totton yesterday. I was going to add it to the lazy spotter thread but just decided to drop it in here instead as it looks like the one in the brochure!
20170813_104156.jpg
My wife is getting used to me taking pictures of old chod but at this point she's going "what are you taking a picture of?" looking around genuinely not seeing the Mondeo. This must say something about the design. I guess it still doesn't look like an old car even after 20 years.

Re the design Yoss, while the car itself still blandly fits in, it's not really a popular type of car anymore, medium sized family hatches have been killed by cross overs and SUVs.

That's got me thinking. I've always wanted to see a Mondeo on late Ford Sierra Ghia wheels like these:

That Sierra is lovely, and I agree, I also think they would suit it well. They sort of remind me of a Mk2 Mondeo SI wheel.

 

Could only find a pic of a mk1, but these are the wheels I mean:

Diesel as well. Not many diesel ones left, most got cabbed or simply run into the ground.

Wouldn't give him £350 on it though, more like £100. Paid £350 for one with 60k on the clock and with a test not long back!

Just puts me in mind of that red taxi Aspen one that the old boy has done 1 million miles in. 

 

Dont ever remember mk1 diesels being common though, or even mk2s really. Even when Mondeos mk1s were recent and common taxis most were petrols, only ever remember one diesel one driven by the father of a couple of kids I went to school with. That one was a lovely colour though, Cayman blue I think its called. And one of my pals at high schools dad had a 3 year old 98 S mk2 1.8 TD LX estate in Radiant Red, nice car at the time, not very quick though, even with a Turbo it was only about 85bhp dragging a big Mondeo along. Just to keep my aspergers knowledge going, the mk1 was M885EHS and the mk2 was S765KGB.

Degreasing the cylinder head on the GLX rapidly escalated into an entire cooling system re-fresh! The chances of me getting this all back together with the constant tension clips and 24 year old pipes staying dry are slim, but I'll have a go...

 

First a lot of the air intake stuff has to come out, filter, air box, MAF air inlet...

 

IMG_20170821_174254.jpg

 

While doing this, I noticed the MAF connector is useless. On early cars this is common, later ones had gold connectors. Guess what, the blue base is the same, TADTS. A gold one will need to be 'spliced' in, he says, which I will hand to an auto leccy guy. Got one from a breaker at more cost than it should have been.

 

IMG_20170826_121338.jpg

 

The plastic stat housing was all gummed up, so in discussion with Sierraman and others decided it needed to come off completely. 3 bolts to the head only, but removing the pipe connectors was a PITA!

 

IMG_20170819_134707.jpg

 

This is a bit of a mess...

 

IMG_20170821_185830.jpg

 

Finally in bits, I might get a replacement housing from Stuboy's mate, but I might do with this one...

 

IMG_20170821_185933.jpg

 

The sensor that tells the engine what to do, is original, but guess what the cheapest OEM one was sourced from junk.se in Sweden and arrived in a couple of days along with a new expansion tank cap...

 

More bits are coming from Sweden to refresh other aspects of the engine.

 

IMG_20170819_180249.jpg

 

So, that's where I'm up to.  I'm also trying to remove the infamous rubber t-piece which can cause a poor idle from the PCV set up. It's clearly never been changed, and this 15 stone weakling can't 'pop' it off. I've removed the coil, but looks like I might have to actually remove the coil mount to get to it, or indeed, cut the t-piece off.

 

t.jpg

 

Lots of red rust in the system, so will need a flush if I can get it back together.

 

Anyway, in summary this is all a good learning curve for me and its quite useful to have another complete car to see how it will need to go back together!

Ayeup egg, I reckon the pins in those MAF connectors are just "junior power timer" pins. You can pop them out of the housing with a couple of jewelers screwdrivers (or even the proper tool this is only a few quid) and then replace them, they're pence to buy and there's no splice in your wiring to fail down the line.

No idea what it will and won't work with tbh, faded white plastic certainly! Worth a try if you have spares I suppose though! The first time I try it will be on something worthless and that I don't want just in case!
