I took garage they say change your windscreen.is leaking.than i changed it.but still wet driving foot area when rain come.pls help me sol e this problem.thanks.

Answers

The answer lies in the pollen filters .The rain water runs onto the bulkhead trim , (this is held in with 3 screws) . and in through the openings for the pollen filters I never managed to fix it , but i thought of putting waterproof foam into the filter holes instead of the filters , to prevent it entering the vehicle . stephen from Greater Manchester

Hi Stephen.Thanks for answer but water is not coming from the front clutch side area. When it rains it is dry at the front. It`s coming in the driver`s door side area where all wires. Underneath it`s always wet on that side. It`s a Ford Galaxy 7 seater 2002. If you have any solution please help me. I already spent £100 but they could not find anything.

One of my rear fold down seats will not lock into position, the back support part of the seat pulls back past the normal seating position as if its dis-engaged. Is the some sort of clip that locks it in that could be broken, not obvious whats happened.

Answers

I had a 1996 2.0 ltr petrol galaxy that suffered from this problem . On either side of the seat, there are brackets that hinge the seat so that it folds. They are covered by the plastic covers that the tilt or fold lever pokes out of . They prevent your fingers getting hurt .The plastic covers have yellow plastic clips/fasteners that clip into the holes on the bracket ,so you will need some new clips ,because you have to pull the covers off . Holding the bracket to the seat are cap head screws . It is these that work loose and fall out . To fix i got some cap head screws from screwfix and replaced them .You will need an allen key for them , to tighten them up. stephen from Greater Manchester

Answer this question

Alan, Brighton & Hove

Ford Galaxy

I have a 53 plate 2.3 Ghia and it has developed an intermittent fault which I can not find. When traveling the engine loses power and cuts it will generally restart when we are coasting then within 2 minutes of that the engine just cuts out all engine power is gone. The electrics are still on all lights functioning. Turning the key apart from all the normal dash lights nothing happens. Not even an attempt to turn over. If I then leave the car for 10 minutes and try and restart it restarts and off we go again. It generally happens when accelerating or there is a hi torque requirement, i.e accelerating or just after. It can go one or two weeks before it does it again. I have put it in the garage to check it out and they say they can not find the fault unless it happens and obviously it only happens when I am driving. Open to Ideas? and help?
