2010 '60' Ford Mondeo 2.0TDCi Zetec (sorry)
it coud be helpful if they were divided into models, if model specific ie w202 w210 etc, to make it (hopefully) easier for people to find the diy relative to their car! there could also be a general section for non model specific info. just a thought....

Many components are common across the range, and this would be hard to set up

I suppose I should buy a cheap digi camera and keep it in the workshop... I'm doing diff oil seals on a C230 kompressor next week. Might be interesting for somebody??

okay, i'll write them when i get time and try and fudge some photos.

if a c180 W202 diff is the dame then that might be aof use to me, as one of my seals has a seep on it which i could do with sorting.

I've got an SLK with a broken roof in bits at the moment. Pictures might help me put it all back together again...

I have extracted the broken cable, new one arrives tomorrow. It's actually not as complicated as you might think when you see it all dismantled.





I'll be here crying tomorrow if I can't get it all back together and working...

If you think you have something suitable for the DIY section then you need to PM a moderator.
