    Problem with windows when close the door

    Hi. Take the door trim off and have a look. The bottom of the window runner is secured to the door frame near the bottom and is adjustable. Hopefully it may just be the securing screw come out. Cheers Paul

    Hello, I am new.

    Hellow every body: My name is Álvaro. I am from Spain, where cabriolet haters grow and live, so I came to UK forum, where no roof cars lovers live, haha. At the first, I say sorry for my bad English. I don't speak or write English since I was a child. Ok, I am Escort RS Turbo Cabriolet new owner (it was originally 1.6 i but now it has all mechanics rs turbo parts it can handle). No body in Spain knows about or likes this car, so I would like to be part of this club from thousand of kilometers (or milles here). Hi everybody!

    tonneau cover

    My tonneau cover for the roof when folded down is not BLACK its a greyish / black is there a product that I can use that will dye it so it's True Black ? its made of vinyl so a normal fabric dye would work ? I cannot use paint as it needs to be flexible ?. I see vinyl sprays advertised has anyone used them ? which one ? and what were the results ?

    Wind Deflector

    Hi all, Just a question has anyone got a Wind Deflector off of a MK6 / MK7 that is damaged or they don't need ? I'm looking for the 4 double press studs that fix onto the rear seats and then the toeneau cover fits on to them when the roofs down. I have both covers but some of the press studs don't fit properly anymore on the wind deflector I live in Holland but postage will not be a problem as they are only light and can be sent a letter post rate Cheers All

    Tennis Fuel Problem

    The relay should start the fuel pump running when the engine is cranking. On Mfi Escorts the purple pump relay was a very common fault so if providing an additional earth does not fix it I would be looking at the relay. Cheers.
  15. Does anyone know where I can purchase a new electric aerial for a ford escort cabriolet solar mark 5b?

    Tennis Fuel Problem

    Thanks Paul, It was my next intention to try it with a direct earth to the battery. You mention to test it whilst cranking, does that mean it bypasses the relay and creates a direct positive to the pump whilst cranking? Steve

    Tennis Fuel Problem

    Steve, I know you said the wiring was dead going to the pump but it could be the live or the earth. Put your meter across the pump wires (with it connected) and test the voltage when it should be running i.e. when you first switch on for 1 second or when cranking. You should have battery voltage. If not then try it again with the probe that was on the earth wire now going to a known good earth (even if it means running a wire back to the battery). If you now have battery voltage then it is the earth at fault. If you still don't then it is the feed. At least then you will know what side of the circuit to investigate. Cheers Paul

  27. didn't look very good as very rusty, I went for the option of filling in the holes and having it sprayed, cost me £320 though.

    Tennis Fuel Problem

    Thank you all for your replies and thanks Ian for info to help clarify the engine, despite the original ford purchase paperwork which says it is an EFI it does have a dizzy on the right and FORD on the manifold so it is the MFI. I do have a Haynes manual "Ford Escort (petrol) Sept 1980 to Sept1990" which cover 1117cc to 1597cc it does not cover RS1600i or revised Escort range Sept 1990. Is there a better or more appropriate manual. I have worked out the brown lead to the pump is the earth, so I will try a direct earth lead connection and see if that works which at least will show if there is a earth connection fault. I have also noticed there is a thin tube/hose that goes up inside the wheel arch to a small box like item adjacent to the fuel filler that is not connected as the connection is broken, I have looked in the manual and cannot identify what this is does any one know? Thanks again as the saga continues. Steve
