Having recently got a car with a fabric soft top, do I really need to pay 20 quid for a kit to clean it with safely? -- *(on a baby-size shirt) "Party -- my crib -- two a.m Dave Plowman London SW To e-mail, change noise into sound.

Hello, I am going to change my rear brake pads and brake discs on my 60 plate Mondeo, when I get a dry day. I've noticed that the rear pads are worn and the disc is slightly scored on the offside wheel but the pad material is much thicker on the nearside wheel. Why would this be? Because the disc is scored, I will change it this time. What is the

Here's one you might find amusing or say how can he be so bloody stupid. I drive a diesel car and it usually returns around 50-55MPG. Over the last week or so the MPG dropped alarmingly and was eventually down to 40MPG. I had a read and noted that fuel make seems to get a lot of blame for problems like this so tried three different makes of diesel but none brought back the MPG that I was used...

Hi, Does anywhere make (or supply and fit) really nice bump guard trim? I've been on Google all morning and have only come up with the basic self fit Halfords/ebay/Amazon strip. I'm looking for a 0.5-1cm thick nicely styled rubber (or soft plastic) trim that I can fit or get fitted to a new car to deal with all the dings from other doors in car parks. But I'd like it to be permanent and

I've use it from time to time, to spruce them up but the guy in National tyres today, made the comment that it rots the rubber. I've never noticed a problem. Is there any truth in it or it it BS? Andy C

Recently bought an 07 Focus, still waiting for dealer to forward manuals... We want to power the GPS from the power socket under the radio, but it doesn't seem to work. Is there a hidden button/special plug required? Managed to open the bonnet (vague memories of fiddling with Ford badges helped here!) to check the fuse box, all seemed well but without the manuals I was just looking for a broke...

Are there any 'everyday' cars manufactured in recent years that don't use cambelts - or if they do use one, have a 'non-interference' engine design ? Thanks for any replies.

Hi, How long should track rod ends last, typically? The reason that I am asking is that my Audi A6 has just failed its MOT test on excessive play on a track rod end. The car failed its MOT on the very same item only one year ago and the garage replaced it. Given that the car has only covered about 6000 miles since then and it always driven on roads is this reasonable?
