The gully above the doors runs water down into the inside of the bodywork. I took out carpet and ran water over the roof and found that water seeped out of the welded Joint intoning footwell and it pools as it hD nowhere to go. I poured epoxy resin over the joint so that it sealed the gap and no more water Ian from Cheshire

The passenger footwell of my 2007 Ford Galaxy is continuously damp and after rainfall this week it is now soaking wet. It dried out over the summer months and we had the windscreen resealed to see if that would make a difference but with the rain this week the water wells up when you touch the carpet. Any ideas what could be causing it?

When I'm driving my handbrake light comes on, the car beeps and then the word STOP appears. Then it says brake fault, then service manual, then all disappears and all is good until the next time. Brake pads and discs are new and fluid is good. This happens when I'm just driving not touching the brake pedal. Please help, it`s so annoying!

Hi my 19 tdi 2002 Galaxy runs lovely, then when warm and on high revs it starts juddering as though it`s struggling for fuel. If I back off the revs it goes okay, if not then it goes into limp mode. If I switch off the engine then it`s okay again, seems to be getting worse. Put new turbo on 10k ago, I bypassed the fuel filter but still the same. Any suggestions please, I`m really desperate? Thanks, Alan

Hi. I have a 2006 Ford Galaxy 2.0 ltr petrol engine. Recently when I turn the blower on, there is verylittle air coming from the air vents. The dial where you can choose where you want the air to be directed to, ie vents, windscreen, feet etc, was stiff and now it turns freely. Any ideas? Also would my car be fitted with an alarm, and if so, how would I activate this? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank s. Gillian

I have a Ford Galaxy which recently has had a new turbo fitted. The problem I have is that when I accelerate it holds back like it`s in limp mode, then all of a sudden black smoke comes out of the exhaust and then it`s fine, that is until I have to stop and then the process repeats itself. I have been informed that it will do this until all of the oil is burnt out from the cat. Of course I am now a bit worried as it`s been two months and it still does it. The mass air flow sensor has been replaced and I am now sick of throwing money at it. Any ideas would be much appreciated.

I have a 2.0 petrol '56 (new shape) Galaxy and I also get ticking / clicking noise when accelerating. The dealer thinks it may me the fuel injectors over working which is apparently a known problem and can't be addressed. Our Galaxy has only done 65K miles and been serviced regularly. No impact to performance, temperature needle or economy. Paul from Berkshire
