Note To Mods I know technically this is in the right category ( induction / exhausts ) but it might be a good idea to pin/stick it also in the 1.8L/2.0L Duratec Petrol Engines (Mondeo Mk3) section as people often 'turn up' with a rattling noise in their engine and would be unaware of the offending flaps that are lurking inside the inlet manifold so don't think to look in the "inlet/exhaust" section. hope this makes sense!!!

It cant be in two sections at the same time, it's one or the other, the inlet flaps discussion could go in either section, but seeing as the Mk3 Duratec 1.8/2.0 section already has a sticky there, so keeping it here it will offer a higher "hit rate" so more likely to be noticed in either section :L

Also Baldrick has added a link to the other sticky so it's covered.

That is superb. Ive never done anything beyond an oil change and shoes on the missus punto years ago but after getting a mk3 mondeo i am very keen to learn some skills. Im quite geeky (think electrronics, HiFi tunrtables, etc) but the thought of knackering a motor always terrifys me. But all the advice on this forum (and that howto especiallY) has given me the confidence to dive in :-).

Go for it!, It is quite satisfying to see your beloved (car!) in bits all around and even better when you put it back together ( with no bits leftover!) and it actually runs :lol:

Cheers Paul M. (flapless) :driving:

Thanks for the guide! Do you actually have to remove the dipstick tube, or just detach it from the manifold? Mine doesn't particularly want to come off. Neither does the brake servo pipe for that matter, but I think I was just being too gentle with that...

now, i'd say remove it, as it'll only get in the way and p1ss you right off at a critical point. space is your worst enemy doing this job, anything you remove before trying has got to help,

i'd always suggest if someone was ever changing the engine to de-flap before fitting, as it'd be so much easier.

Cheers, I wound up discovering that space is a bit of a premium and didn't really want to risk the job taking longer than an afternoon so stopped for the moment and put everything back together again. Cleaned the IACV though which was a bit manky. Not got any clicking noises from the manifold though so I'm not terribly concerned...was more interested in improving fuel economy to be honest!

best off being prepared to spend a day doing it, although its quicker than that, at least you got a bit of spare if anything untoward happens, or you get an awkward bolt. They go through plastic so shouldn't pose too much of a problem.
