GTC 404 MOT electric advice needed

Have you cleaned fuses and earths and checked for power yet? Unlikely to be the relays that Steve replaced recently IMO. I’ve cleaned all the fuses in the car and the 4 in the engine bay and found one to be iffy (engine bay 25 amp) so replaced. Cleaned earths no. Not sure where to start cleaning th...

GTC 404 MOT electric advice needed

Pictures from around the wiper motor. The small bullet connector seems to be quite a flimsy affair. Easily popped out and pushed back in. Two of these connections are near to the wiper motor. Also there appears to be a few earth connections in the vicinity. 1B10FE2D-D040-45E7-8CEA-3367B53565F0.jpeg ...

GTC 404 MOT electric advice needed

One point to mention is that when the new bonnet was fitted and painted the bracket and light in the bonnet (which was never connected) was not installed at all and the two wires near the bulkhead have been left hanging loose. I can’t remember them being left like that previously. This may not be re...

GTC 404 MOT electric advice needed

Taking into account that to date I have not removed or checked my “Ripca” 40 amp relays. The “Ripca” website states that the reference 2152 is a 4 pin mini relay normally open. I’m now looking at buying either possibly necessary replacements or simply some spares. The spare relay I have already (not...

GTC 404 MOT electric advice needed

Just realised the relay in my hand is a cube with the male prong connections. So these prongs push into a female part. Making the two piggy back cubes in my glove box. :shock: Tell me if I’m wrong. :oops:

GTC 404 MOT electric advice needed

I’ve carried out a basic check of the 4 fuses in the engine bay with a continuity tester (fuses taken out). One seemed a bit hit and miss so that was replaced. When I took the the glovebox out there are 3 relays as per picture and 3 inline fuses (possibly associated with radio/cd). What I mean with ...

GTC 394 Power steering advice

Hi Jim I was in and out of the house when the rack was being refitted. Also short time on the phone to Mark Wilson. I can remember the guy saying something about the disc on the column. I think he mentioned one bolt/set pin had a nut and the other one just a thread without a nut so said it must just...

GTC 394 Power steering advice

Today on my drive my mechanic. Refitted the (Mark Wilson) reconditioned power steering rack. Following a quick desperate call to Mark - Mark advised us that two of the pipes were fitted the wrong way around. So steering rack off and thankfully corrected. I’ve not tried or driven the car as all the t...

GTC 404 MOT electric advice needed

The MOT on GTC 404 ran out yesterday. :( I haven’t taken it for the test as I have the problems listed below - all basically electrics. The wipers have stopped working as well as the headlights. The wiper unit was fully refurbished around 6 years ago. Both seem to have stopped working immediately fo...

Hi Mark
Is this one (when checked over and refurbished if found necessary) suitable for my GTC?
Or are you already well on the way with my power steering rack?
All the best

About the new black EFL90 FORD oil filter

I also bought four of the EFL90 filters from Sandicliffe at £7.52 each. They're Ford main dealers so I doubt they're selling fakes. Perhaps the spec has just changed? :-? Well something has definitely changed. The black “EFL90” is 4 ounces (25%) heavier. So still not fitted either. Any ideas as to ...
