Electrical Boot release? Wow! i hope you are not talking about something like this

Little bit of correction.
1. brake booster is wrongly marked. Actually its the wiper motor. brake booster will be attached to the brake fluid reservoir bottle.

2. Charcoal canister is actually called receiver/drier. it part of Air conditioning system.

I'd e-mailed T-BHP support with edited image day before yesterday. Hope they put it up soon.

The Charcoal canister I marked stores fuel vapours (confirmed by workshop). You claim that it is connected to A/C. The problem that I faced is that petrol smell used to come when the A/C was on. The hose from canister to throttle body was tightened & the issue vanished.
Could it be that the device is connected to both A/C & Fuel system?

Gasoline Vaporizer and AC receiver dryer is totally different.

Gasoline Vaporizer is connected to rubber hoses, its a efficiency and emission control related device.

AC receiver/dryer is a prime part of Air conditioning system. Its normally connected to High pressure side. Its main function is to separate liquid and gas.

Both are not related.

Distinguishing them is easy. Receiver dryer is made of aluminum and is connected to aluminum pipes, unlike vaporizer which is made of ABS plastic and thin rubber hoses is connected normally to carburetor or injection system.

Charcoal canister is the term used for the device marked, though Fuel vapourizer also seems appropriate. It is referenced as such in the service manual

Thanks for clarifying. I had originally marked the Canister/Fuel vaporizer in the pic. Attaching a clearer pic of canister.

The below mentioned part is nowhere near the fuel vaporizer/canister. It sits right below the gearbox mount on left side. It is also visible from the front bumper area.

Oh.. I have seen that thread. Thats cable operated, cheap, reliable and extremely easy to install. But..

I came to know recently that Ford's OE remote boot release kit, for which they charge ~6,500 includes just an actuator motor, simple wiring and a switch. I have already sourced the motor for 250 Rs, have the wire for ~50 bucks. Now searching for an appropriate switch.

Thought of going the OE way, just for the sake of it.

Is it possible to use the dummy switch on top of the air flow selector dial, which is the left most dial of the three dial air con assembly on the center of the dash.

This is a great thread and would help inspire lazy buggers like me to get their bu%^ of the couch and work on their rides. Was able to check my air filter today and i realized for Hyundai elantra air filter you would not need a screw driver. You could do it very easily

Now i have minor issues bugging me and hope to get some help. Friend bought this new car a week back and there are some minor electrical problems. As i am in the US right now i do not have the advantage of going to the local mechanic to get it fixed cheaply so am coming here for help.

First my Stereo. Its a old one and comes factory fitted. I am unable to make the speakers on the left side of the car play. Only the right side speakers seems to be blaring music. Attached is the headunit picture to help you give solutions. ANy way to figure what must be wrong?

Second problem is my AC and circulation buttons. Both of them seems on forever and how much i press it it doesnt switch off. How do i go about it?

Lastly just yesterday i realised that the passenger side pwer window switch has conked. It doesnt work and thus the passenger is at the mercy of the driver. If its a lady then you wont have your window moving at all when she is driving(this is the case of my friend so no offence women)

For a embarrassingly simple DIY of taking out the battery and the ECU shroud of the Civic have a look at this post. Originally I was planning to post the steps on this thread, but didnt happen that way. And ignore the top part of the post.

Guys one question:

Can someone point to which part in a Fiesta TDCi engine bay is the DPF?

Mustang.101 says it has a DPF, but I found Ford UK having no mention of DPF on the 1.4L TDCi (they mention it for 1.6L) - so wondering whether he is right.

Vina, "I think", DPF is a part of Euro 5 mandate and not really essential in BS 4. Experts please confirm

Duratorq engines need it to meet Euro-4 (BS4) itself. All diesels need it for Euro5 - this is the info you get on wikipedia too.

The thing is I haven't read any references of the Figo engine (1.4 TDCi) having a DPF, the 1.6 TDCi definitely has it (though it isn't offered in India)

even if it is there, i dont think youll find it in the engine bay.
IMO it would be somewhere further downstream.

Well, then it has to be before the silencer somewhere - that means under the car.

The pictures I have seen on the internet have different positions - on Fiesta in UK it is a tubular structure under the car. When they show engine only, it is bolted after the turbo.

No mention of Figo, but then Figo is primarily sold in India and if anybody had a picture we would have it already on team BHP.
