    Our neighbour has a newer car, a Ford Fiesta and that is a brighter red so, this one seems dull and lacklustre in comparison.....not hideous, just not as bright, wrong shade of red for me.

    :) Prep is everything when doing this, took a lot of time but, no overspray anywhere and super clean lines.....gotta love Frog Tape. Need to address the ####ty plastic wheel things, wheels eventually but for now, I am pretty happy with the exterior....Side indicator lenses need swapping...

    Once I have gone over the casting of the throttle body, inside and out with a small wire brush to remove anything else vile left behind, I will put the small green gasket back on where the actuator bolts on, put the MAF and TPS back on and put the mesh, plastic thing and retaining clip back on...

    Many thanks to Micra S on here for the correct sizes for the TPS and other sensor, name escapes me right now....IE the Torx things. The MAF requires a TS25. The TPS requires a T20. The Idle actuator requires a T27. I am no fan of having to guess or buy multiple tools so, many thanks for the...

    I have a spare throttle body(or two) so, seeing as it was allegedly the issue, may as well clean one of the spares, get it all sorted then pull the current one, readjust the throttle cable....somewhat sloppy and see what gives? TB from the yard, obviously sat in water etc as exposed to rain and...

    NOT hideous under the bonnet but, will be a lot cleaner once I address the spiders and dust...replace the rocker box cover with a nice painted version....not a fan of this red on the car but, suppose it is that or black for the rocker box cover? Paint code is Z10 K....Not figured that out yet...

    Mechanically it is stupidly sound and no rust whatsoever!!! Not a fan of the colour but, can't have everything... Will start with the cosmetics as per. Plastic drips down the side, bumper inserts, door handles, bumpers, faded pink trim around the reverse lights, fog inserts and plastic insert...

    Here we go again :) Mk II facelift, Y reg, 30k and a steal from an older couple, had engine issues(ie the MAF had gone!). One train journey to Gloucester later and, 1 swapped MAF, drove back to sunny Kent and never missed a beat.

    K11 facelift idle problems

    Cool! I have a smokers toothbrush waiting :) I had a good look at the TB I bought from Ebay so that all makes perfect sense. I will take pics and come back to this tomorrow. Many thanks for the advice/input....greatly appreciated. I have the TS25 for the MAF, don't have other tools for that IAC...
