Hi there. I am having problems with the locks on my van. The barrels are ruined and need replacing. The problem I have is that I can't get the barrels out. It is an ex police van and there is a steel plate in front of the locks so I cannot access them. I can't see a way of getting the plates out. Is there a special way of doing it?

hi..any one now the best and easy way to change the headlights on my connect....manual saids you have to take the bumper off...not done one before on this van only on my old escort mk4 van a few years ago. any infomation would be very greatful.

Answers

Hi,did mine couple week ago.if you take the bolt out at the top.then theres 2 more at the bottom.so you dont have to take bumper off.gently prise a driver underneath the headlight and press down on bumper,that should leave enough room to get a sock extension arm in.be careful not to snap the nuts Steve from West Yorkshire

where can i locate hand brake cable adjuster on transit connect 03 , thank you

Answers

to adjust the hand brake pull the rubber boot off around the lever....look down the side of the hand brake handle and you should see a threaded bar with a nut on(like a bolt).....with hand brake in the off position tighten or loosen the nut......hope this helps mate... stewart from Suffolk
