new owner and a few questions

Postby Connecto marto » Tue Nov 05, 2019 2:55 pm

I have my first transit connect, it is an 07 L model. And I have a few questions. I have search the site for answers for other things so, so far so good.
Right first question when turning on the lights should there be a lights on symbol on the dash pod.
What type of bulb does the dash pod take as I have a bulb gone.
And now the biggy when moving off from a stand still there is a bit of travel before the van moves. My first thought was a lower engine mount but not so sure now. Any ideas from you guys ?. Clutch bit is high and gears change well, for more info for you. So thanks for any replies.

My 07 never had a light to show lights were on, and I sure the pod has led lights soldered to the board so not changeable.

Yup, same as mine. Never had a "lights on" indication. Also correct about being LED, i had to have my pod refurbished with a new board.

Thanks for the replies guys. Took van to the garage and turns out the knock noise when releasing clutch was a very worn gear box mount feels like a new van. Got 5he cam belt changed while it was in for a piece of mind.
