Gear linkage came loose about 2weeks ago, friend fixed it for me :D
Standing on 163 000km
Im one of the lucky ones (Touch wood)
Must admit I nurse my baby.


So Since then I have replaced:
Whole new aircon system and compressor
New Battery
New front bumper (Hit a dog or something, was not cool :( )
Rear discs (New from Fraud, cost me an arm and a leg)
CV Boots
Had the cam belt done on 200 000km
Lamba Sensor (O2 Sensor)

Below all happened because the AC pulley bearing seized
V-Belt
Idle Pulley
Tension Pulley
AC Compressor Clutch, electromagnet and pulley (I did not remove the compressor as it was still working perfectly. The pulley bearing seized and caused everything to get hot and melt.

Running smoothly again and standing on 213 700km

So, after roughly 7 years of owning my ST170 she left me by the side of the road for the first time ever, and it was the Powersteeting Pump, had to
replace it and damn, with the labour all in all, was about R8000 to get her going again, but she is fixed and I am happy as chappie again!

Also replaced another 2 x tyres as the previous rear ones worn off on the inside, have to get the rear shimmed and lined up again.

So my drivers side window stopped working and had to pull that out, and found a place that fixes these as Ford was just crazy with their prices.
Had to replace the whole unit, can't buy the plastic guide and the cable apart, so got that fixed and she is sorted.

Wanted to change the fuel pump for years now, as she struggles when driving in the heat and jerks under half indicator on the gauge.
Changed the pump and she is all good to go again, and pulls like a train now.

Very happy!
