1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    To close this box once you've read it (and the Rules), click on the X in the top right-hand corner.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    Sons 05 v6 Mondeo has a major water leak, the pipe from the water pump to wherever has split it's a rubber pipe about a foot long and almost impossible to get at.
    Ford main agent says this pipe is not in stock anywhere in the Uk and when it is the repair will be £350
    It's a shaped pipe and different circ each end so difficult to botch one.
    Any SENSIBLE advice folks? But please only from folk who understand the motor.:up:
    Thanks.

    depending on how bad a split, use amalgam rubber tape, reinforced by skin of tin can and tie wraps...keep you going till you can get to scrapyard.HTH

    the best u can do is to take two rubber routes of the same dia,
    and alu pipe to fit in the midddle (2-4 mm walls)

    add double clamps and go

    Ask the dealer for the part number and do a google search, it's surprising what you can find. Ford are on close down until after the new year. I work for a ford dealer and unless there's one on the shelf at a dealer they won't be able to check the main ford parts warehouse.

    back in my offroading days i used to use these for silicone hoses,there based in derby and they stock a wide variety and if its not one they do take your old hose in and they will make one,being silicone you shouldnt have to touch it again for many years,(thats assuming you can get the old one off yourself) but would be a hell of a lot cheaper than what youve been quoted

    OK for those of you who are interested in the outcome.

    Although this hose is fitted with a clip at each end and can be removed ford only supply the hose connected at one end with a long shaped metal pipe which requires much disassembly to remove. hence the cost.
    Ford engineer removed just the rubber hose gave it to my lad who has had one made for £10. Cost will be just a couple of hours work.


    Now why Oh why could not Ford have done that in the first place. I despair.
