    Mondeo MK3 Handbrake Hell!!

    I've no idea which one it is, I know it wasn't affected by the nightmare recall as I've already checked this with Ford. I have however held the brake pedal on then lifted with lever a few times up and down with the button pressed before setting in and this seems to work slightly better. Not...

    Ideal HE24 System Boiler Condemned!!

    could have cried when he said it. Said its a bad fault for a boiler of this age. So if I ring Ideal Monday this would be covered under their fixed price agreement? Don't want them coming and charging me but not doing anything. To be fair to the BG guy he was very good didn't feel...

    Did he check the pipework under the floorboards? When I changed a rad last year had the same. Turns out I'd dislodged the flow pipe from a clip and everytime the boiler shut off it was banging against a joist I think it was
