    bad day for Dads Cars...... (pics and rant warning!!)

    Dads New Mondeo's washer jets are piss poor so we decided to change the pumps from each washer bottle (only to find they are different ) what a BAD idea that was....

    Where the washer Pump is situated (behind the silver aircon thingy is removed though)


    Both cars lying in bits!!



    (safety first kids yes there is axle stands under both cars!!!)

    Now for the Rant....

    went to polish the Blue one after i had washed it due to the muck we unearthed from it and found...

    loads of Overspray on all four corners of the car,

    the Rear Crash cans behind the bumper have the date 03-08-2004 stamped on them yet the car was registered in October 2003

    the front bumper has been resprayed at some stage

    Front passenger headlight bracket was snapped (rattled at 60mph+ but just swapped it with silver ones headlight)

    I wish i'd never started working on the f**king thing i've found nothing right with the car.. it's all been problems! wish he'd never bought the damn thing now!!

    Blue ones my dads, Silver one now belongs to me.. and my dads ford daft.. i only have the silver one to sell for money for my new car!

    Also..... Ones an LX ones a Zetec, Ones a 1.8 the others a 2.0 TDCi and ones a facelifted model and ones not... it's not like they are the exact same car with the exact same stuff in them


    Matt i didnt expect a job this big for a stupid wee washer pump

    Danny my dad works for Network rail he's never out of the Ford Dealership so maybe he should get a job there

    He's also been eyeing up a ST TDCi like the pic you've posted
