Re: First car and it's a PUMA and WOW!!!

My first car car was and still is a Puma. I've had it for ten years now. I've driven other cars, but nowt comes close to its handling. I replaced teh standard '98 alloys with 17 inch types, and it's a dream to throw around a corner. One of the most amazing experiences of my life was dribing from the...

Re: puma has let me down for the first time!

I had a similar problem after I finished one evening in December. Although in my case I realised that I had left my side lights on. The car was dead... no central locking, alarm, clock...

Fortunately my employer has some handy folks around who gave me a battery boost and off I toddled.

Re: First Black Puma - Loving it but being cautious

Black Puma's are by far the best! Although they're a bugger for stone chips :|

Lambda/hego question!

Hi folks. To cut a long story short... I had some issues with my car and had the Engine Management System looked at by a friend of a friend. It flagged the Lambda Sensor as faulty, and thus the diagnostics ended there. From looking at previous MOT's which included emissions testing, the Lambda value...

Re: Puma Problems (key fob, knocking, alarm and er back seat!)

Well a little update. The key fob and remote central locking are now sorted out. I followed the FAQ, got some batteries from Tesco's for about £5 and did the reprograming. It worked a treat and I am rather glad I told the Ford Dealership to nicely get stuffed when they offered to run it through a di...

Re: FRP314 Under Shell Works

Gaaah you're lucky :-P It's an effort to get my missus to help wash my car, let alone work on the exhaust! There's a lot of inspiration in this project, I only wish I had more time on my hands as I exp[ect my lowly Puma could do with a similar kind of loving. PS: thanks for the tips on removing the ...

Re: Puma Problems (key fob, knocking, alarm and er back seat!)

stuff My apologies, I should've done that first. I've printed out the guide for the two button remote and I'll give that a whirl. I'd forgotten about the warning buzzer, it's been that long since it worked... that made me smile :-P I'm not sure if I feel confident enough to take the door apart, so ...

Puma Problems (key fob, knocking, alarm and er back seat!)

Hi folks. I've been a Ford Puma driver since 2002... I was hooked ever since I saw that Steve McQueen advert (damn advertising). Anyway, I have a *small* list of issues I'd appreciate some help with. Most I beleive are niggles which are easy to sort out but I lack any mechanical skills in this depar...
