#189985 Rear Bumper Pics (Screws)

Posted by JazzyGeoff on 03 September 2010 - 07:14 PM

Following on from another thread here are some pics of my car before and after with the screw method behind the plastic trim panel in the rear bumper. I have also used wooden blocks to achieve this result (in place of the foam ones from Ford) however, I think the screws alone would probably have been enough (I will be posting the full fix seperately showing the blocks I made and used): -

Basically I jacked up the bumper using the Ford jack, a piece of timber and an old rag to prevent scratching - ensuring the bumper was level when it was in the correct position.

Next step is to remove the black plastic panel and drill through the bumper and into the metal bar behind the bumper.

The metal bar behind the bumper is very close so I just tightened it right up until the plastic bumper was fully touching the metal and screw was firmly in place. The washers were just to take up some of the pressure as others have mentioned in their fixes.

Took less than an hour and thanks to everyone else who has previously posted this fix for their comments and pictures of how to do it.

The screws are 4.8mm dia. and 25mm long and the washers are 20mm dia. overall size with a 7mm dia. hole and are around 2mm thick if anyone was wondering. I drilled a 3.5mm dia. hole which gave a nice tight fit to prevent the screw being loose.

#401513 Silver Txs With Grey Wheels

Posted by mtutt20 on 08 February 2016 - 08:08 PM

I decided to go for the different colour on the wheels and went for Fiesta ST Anthracite grey, really pleased with how it turned out, kinda bluey in certain light.


Sorry for the quality of the picture!

#268291 The Joke thread

Posted by hawkeye on 03 April 2012 - 05:42 AM

Three dead bodies turn up at the mortuary, all with very big smiles on
Their faces. The coroner calls the police to tell them what has happened.

First body: Pierre Dubois, Frenchman, 60, died of heart failure while
Making love to his 20-year old mistress. Hence the enormous smile, Inspector,'
Says the Coroner.

'Second body: Hamish Campbell, Scotsman, 25, won £50,000 on the lottery,
Spent it all on whisky. Died of alcohol poisoning, hence the smile.'

The Inspector asked, 'What about the third body?'

'Ah,' says the coroner, 'this is the most unusual one. Paddy Murphy, Irish,
30, struck by lightning.'

'Why is he smiling then?' inquires the Inspector

'Thought he was having his picture taken.'

#418362 Platinum White

Posted by tazzman600 on 28 January 2017 - 08:25 PM

Mechanics giving bodywork/ paint advice? I don't think so. A good professional paint shop can match any paint. I'm unsure how that white looks but I've seen today a wonderful looking mk5 with full sport body kit and 19" wheels. Go for it bud and don't let a grease monkey sway you off it. For pice of mind why don't you pay good bodyshop's a visit and ask those who actually spray cars for a living.

#397393 Just Bought New Shape Mondeo

Posted by Laskababy on 27 December 2015 - 03:58 PM

Well I took the plunge today and have just bought a new shape 2015 ford mondeo titanium with xpack in frozen white,it has the big black grills at the front and bodykit,panoramic roof,electric leather memory seats,sat-nav,19" alloys with park assist and a few other toys,I'll get it Wednesday hopefully,it looks stunning in the White,I traded in my titanium x sport so I hope it will be as good as the sport,it certainly looks the part,it's the new 180bhp tdci engine in it,was half planning it in magnetic colour which too is nice but I honestly think in white it is fantastic looking,need to get the wheels done in smoked chrome again,should look nice with that done.

After a rather lengthy break from most things internet related (lack of time, moved house, kids etc) I spent some time finally finishing off my MR2. It's now road legal! Tax'ed, MOT'ed and insured. Goes like shit off  shovel :)   Got  list of jobs to do to it over winter before hopefully finally doing some trackdays next year.

#393810 New Shape Mondeo Titanium

Posted by nippy on 06 November 2015 - 06:24 PM

So I got the day off work today and went up to Norfolk and bought the car. I absolutely love it.


It isn't as quick as my ST, but it is so much more refined/quiet inside and the build quality compared to my ST is in a different league. I shall post some Piccys later, but after the 130 mile drive back, it isn't quite as clean as it was!

#393386 New Shape Mondeo Titanium

Posted by Laskababy on 31 October 2015 - 02:55 PM

Well I was close this week to buying a new shape mondeo titanium with x pack,very close,but got told today by a ford salesman he thinks ford are takeing out a titanium x sport very soon,well there is a bigger engine,a 210bhp Diesel engine and he thinks,not 100% but pretty sure he heard there will be,how will the sport be much better than the titanium xpack ?the new titanium with xpack is stunning,I was looking for a white one with bodykit but can't get a manual gearbox,I can get a magnetic or silver or black,red or blue but what a job trying to get a white manual one,I think I will wait to see if a sport will come out soon,I'm pretty sure there will be tbh so I better wait for it to see,only difference I would think if a sport comes out will be mabye sports pedals and a few sport badges and mabye different wheels,time will tell,hope it comes soon,in the meantime I'll keep my 2012 sport but now Iv got to go put two new tyres on,the joys eh,best car Iv ever driven the titanium x sport so the new one will need to be something special to beat this one,just hope it's announced soon.
