Front springs, handbrake/rear callipers need watching. I miss Billys Mondy that I sold to a work colleague. Wish I'd kept it tbh. Nice car and good price.

Hopefully the rear calipers are OK, as it failed it's MOT on handbrake issues, and it's not many clicks to apply.

It's got a years test, if the handbrake fails just park it in gear and worry about it next Feb.

Looks a smart motor. Not a fan personally but does look very nice. The temperature gauge reading in Fahrenheit would do my head in though! Not a bad price at all either

The tyres are cheap, for some budgets you are looking at £45-50 a piece. The rear calipers are troublesome, winding them in and out on the service might prevent this. Big thing with the 1.8 is to change the oil regular, otherwise the oil control rings gum up with inevitable results. I've had one of these for a few years, nice cars.

It has done over 500 miles since Tuesday, had a very minor FTP due to low coolant. The expansion tank had a couple of small cracks in, age related, and not uncommon, new expansion tank sourced from John Grose as I needed one pronto, and they were comparable to ebay prices, didn't want to risk a used example as it may do just the same, took all of 15 mins to swap over, the clips were being a sod, and just 2 bolts held it to the inner wing. It's an effortless cruiser, rock steady even at *cough* mph, nice cold aircon, and not too bad on juice, averaged a smidge over 40 mpg for mixed driving

BTW I noticed when working on it on Saturday, very recent front springs! Billy Bonus or what? Might sack off the plates at some point with some DMB John Grose plates. Didn't realise the rear child locks were on until yesterday when the mother inlaw couldn't get out when we went down to Jaywick for a walk along the beach. Didn't realise it had an alarm on until I popped the bonnet with the doors locked. 

 

The only thing I miss is being able to connect my phone up to the stereo for much MP3ness, back to CDs.

There is a module you can get that plugs in to the CD changer port and gives a 3.5mm jack for plugging into phone/mp3 player etc. Can't bear to try to do a link now as on my phone and it'll make me scream but have a look on eBay.

Wasn't worth buying a second hand expansion tank as you say. It certainly sounds like you've landed on your feet with this car.

It's now passed the 1200 mile mark in our custodianship already, had to do 3 runs to Gt Yarmouth in the last week by swmbo whilst I was in hospital there, which racked up the miles a fair bit more. She is treating it like a skip though, GRRRRR

I shall read the handbook to see if I can change it to eurobabble

From memory, the wee plunger (like trip reset but other side) does that.

Good job the springs are done cos mine was a bastard - loosen front subframe to remove strut, then my tough but old school sykes-pickavant spring compressors wouldn't move them enough so had to take the strut to the garage where he used the new air ones he'd just bought.

One thing made me smile though, the bracket for the front brakeline was stamped Jaguar.

For future referance, the front subframe can stay where it is... All I do is drop the lower arm off, ARB link and driveshaft out..... then undo the 3 top nuts holding the strut in place then out she cometh.

 

My first MK3 was an LX. They are suprisingly well catered for compared to other base models. Heated front screen, air con, Cd player and electric windows all round (until 53 plate where they put windy handles in the back). But alas, I upgraded mine significantly with Ghia trim, ST half leather and zetec alloys. I then had a Zetec 05 plate 115 tdci, which I later traded in for a 55 plate ST, which got wrote off. Then a 55 plate Titanium, Now im back onto an 06 plate ST again. Love the mondeo mk3...... and Ive got a shed load of ST parts.

 

funnily enough, Im breaking an ST, if you want any bits ..... wink wink. . . .

Just missed out on a set of Zetec alloys for it, as whilst I was in hospital, the FiL's X plate Zetec had a bit of a FTP after he hit some debris that fell from a car roof, so he's quickly chopped it in for...another Mondeo mk3
