  4. I am trying to find a way to start our car as i have lost or mislaid the keys. the spare key will unlock the steering , open and close doors and petrol cap but wont start the the car. I have spent days looking for the keys and its beginning to drive me nuts. I dont know if the car has an immobilizer or not. are the keys chipped. ? there is a very small red circular light flashing just above the steering column , does this signify an immobilizer? any help would be very much appreciated, i can send photos

  7. I have a Mk6 with the same column and also have a small movement up wards and a very small movement pulling the steering wheel straight towards me. The MoT inspector says it will be a fail next year. Replacements are no longer available and buying a second hand one is a gamble - it could be just as bad once fitted! Are there specialist companies that will refurb them or are alternatives made. The car is 100% otherwise but I now have the prospect of scrapping it after owning it for 22 years.
  8. Hi all. I see looking through the comments in here there is a good tutorial on removing and replacing the roof. However I cant seem to find the tutorial section showing this? Can someone please point me in the right direction. Thank you

  16. Hi all, New to the forum, I recently acquired a 1984 Escort Cab 1.3. 123K. She's been owned for the last 20 years by my girlfriends Dad. I owned a couple of XR3i's when I was younger and I am a bit of a car nut, so jumped at the chance to own this. The bodywork is excellent, as is the underside. Interior is a mixture of bits but not in bad shape. When I got her a few months ago I spent hours tidying up cosmetic stuff, just putting simple things right and giving stuff a basic check over. What I really want to do is give it a proper mechanical once over and refresh for when I bring her out of storage in spring. We would like to use her and get her out and about in the sun! Engine generally feels and sounds a bit tired, gear linkages are shot, jumps out of reverse. Sounds like the lifters need doing - no major smoke surprisingly. Bit lumpy on tick over - pulls ok... basically a CVH with 123K on the clock! I am pretty handy with a spanner, but it really needs to go somewhere where I can leave it, get it inspected properly by expert and have the work done. Perhaps even a bit of a rebuild if needed inc the gearbox. I am looking for recommendations please, I am in Nottingham and have searched and can't find anything around here. I am happy to travel, could anyone be so kind to recommend a decent place to take it, not looking for the cheapest, just someone who knows what they are doing and can be trusted. Thanks all & great forum! I will add some pics. Chris
