HI all,
does anyone have any useful reference / guides for self service of my new Galaxy.  Have previously owned a VW Sharan and found loads of YouTube videos for servicing but cannot seem to find a good source of knowledge to help me with the Fords!

Thx in advance.

Stephen

Hi Stephen [W4]

The usual servicing oil air and fuel filters is pretty straightforward, the later 2.0TDCI need a cranked spanner to loosen the oil filter cap as the space is very restricted.

Views of the engine bay can be found in our reference library showing the location of the popular components See here
2009 Kia Sedona GS In Black 2.9CRDI 183PS. 5 Speed Manual WAV.
2003 MK2 Galaxy Ghia In Solid Black 1.9 TDI 115PS. 5 Speed Automatic.

Upgraded Eberspächer booster heater  to independent heating with 7 day timer.

With VCDS lite (full version) need a code clearing or want to scan for faults in the north kent area, PM me.
All for a pint of Strongbow.

Thx Chris - you are spot on in terms of the space being tight for the oil filter removal.  What size of  cranked spanner do I need - I suppose a socket and ratchet would not do the job ?? - used this for servicing vw sharan - seems easy in comparison with the ford!  Thx for your help.
