Lubricants, Fluids, Sealers and Adhesives
*Hydraulic Fluid - All except vehicles with Electro-Hydraulic Power Steering (EHPS) WSA-M2C195-A
*Hydraulic Fluid - All vehicles WSS-M2C204-A2
* Hydraulic Fluid with the specification WSS-M2C204-A2 can also be used to top up or fill steering systems that are filled with Hydraulic Fluid with the specification WSA-M2C195-A.
Just found this info on the Ford workshop owners manual website, even though its for a 2004 Focus, it shows that the fluids are interchangeable as long as you don't have an electro system, which does need 204 spec fluid.
I think that fords wanted a single fluid for all vehicles of a certain age so changed to 204 even though the 195 spec should work fine, hence why only the ford manual says to use the 204 spec fluid.

The same site shows the mondy 2000-2007 using the wss-m2c-195-a spec fluid

Has anybody got a Haynes manual for the 2003-2007 Mondeo and take a look in it for me as to what fluid they recommend, as i really dont want to pay £18 just for a quick look at specs
