Puma 1.7VCT stalling

Being a bit OCD, I ordered the "official" Ford gasket from an eBay vendor who seems to be a Ford agent (rates-ford) who also sells parts on eBay:

Puma 1.7VCT stalling

Should there be O-rings or a gasket to seal the idle control valve to the manifold, or is it just metal to metal?

Puma 1.7VCT stalling

Please advise:
  • What's an IACV when it's at home?
  • How to clean inspect and test same?
Wouldn't Chris Allison have done all that when he did the engine service?
Thanks David

Puma 1.7VCT stalling

Engine recently serviced by Chris Allison 👍. The car is showing a tendency to stall when not fully warm without the air-con turned on, and when the air-con is turned on the engine stalls whenever it drops to idle. Chris suggested that I replace the Lambda sensor in the top of the exhaust manifold, a...

Engine Servicing for your PUMA. Cambelt, seals, etc

We just got our 2001 vintage 1.7 VCT back from Chris. He did a Stage 1 Engine service and replaced the dodgy clutch fitted by a local garage whose mechanics leave rowel marks in the carpet when they walk around! It is running as "sweet as a nut" and the gear change which had been a bit balky is now ...

Leaking front and rear oil seals 1.7 VCT Puma

I've just had the local Ford stealership look at an oil leak on Mary's (SWMBO) Puma. They say both engine front a rear oil seals are shot and are quoting £SILLY to fix (engine out, gearbox off, replace cam belt just in case). Before deciding this a write off case, I'd like some pointers to alternati...

Parcel shelf clips

OK, I've attached the .stl file to print the Button for the Parcel Shelf strap. You'll need to salvage the pin from the old clip, or get some 3.2mm (1/8") fibreglass rod. You should get it printed by Shapeways using their "Black Natural Versatile Plastic". Cost in December 2019 about £7 for one. It'...

Sliding bar from under nearside headlight

When you install the headlamp, you turn a cam which moves a sliding bar which is underneath to engage with a post on the mounint bracket.

Stupid idjit at bodyshop broke this on the NS one of mine, and would like to replace it.

Can anyone help?

Bet they'll go really quickly, so I'm trying to create a 3D printable model for these (you'd re-use the centre pin from the old one). How does that sound?

Local dealers sold me some 1567939 which appear correct for some models, but the bit that goes through the trim (bottom part of the clips in the picture at start of the thread) is too short to go through the trim and engage with the hole in the tailgate (its only about as long as the trim is thick) ...

Door mirror replacements?

Thanky you, I actually found a Puma mirror and even in the right colour! But it's good to know the Fester mirrors will work too with a bit of creative bit swapping (it could happen again)!

Thanks again to all

Door mirror replacements?

Other than original Puma electric door mirrors are there other Ford door mirrors that will fit/look correct?

If the cover is OK but the guts smashed up are there other Ford mirrors that can be cannibalised to rebuild them?

1) Clip at end of headlamp drain hose (or drain hose complete with clip).

2) Interior rear trim clip (top of trim panel to body)
