    I may still have my front springs from my '95 'Tour with the 2.0 ZETEC and 5spd. Same springs, I suspect. If I can locate them, you may have them for the price of shipping - both of them if you desire.

    There is a series of "checks" that are listed in this forum. Search for these and start there. I am being brief, but promise further assistance once you find this info. It covers checks of the fans themselves, relays and then ends up with the wiring. Really good stuff.

    I think you have your answer!!! In using a replacement compressor, atempt to locate a vehicle that has yet to have the AC lines broken - lessens the chances of moisture contamination within the normally sealed AC system, and possibly a bad used compressor. I realize this might be a tall order, but it is possible.Careful when removing the electrcial connector on your 'Tour where it connects to the compressor. Easily damaged connector.

    The 1995 thru 1997 tail light assemblies are the same; the 1998 thru 2000 are the same. That said, the differences are in the flutting in the red lense. See the following URL's for comparison: http://www.ebay.com/itm/98-00-Ford-Contour-Tail-Lights-LH-RH-/281828934291?fits=Make%3AFord|Model%3AContour&hash=item419e504293:g:bx4AAOSw~bFWH5uE&vxp=mtr

    btw - your '98 SVT is an "E0" model - the earlier of the two models of SVT's; later model is the "E1". Here is a good general reference on all 'Tours/Mystiques: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Mondeo_%28first_generation%29#Ford_Contour_and_Mercury_Mystique

    I am seeing these available on Napaonline.com. Appears to be "cut to fit" on the return lines; pressure line is OEM for all '96 2.0 Contours.

    '95 thru '97 Zetec is a straight forward swap, from one CDW27 vehicle to another CDW27 vehicle. I do know of a ZX2 Zetec w/only 60k verifiable miles for $250. This swap is not a straight forward "drop in", sadly. Locating a low mileage '95 to '97 Zetec will be a chore, but not a lost cause.

    Check this out - our 'Tours are referenced TWICE in this research sanctioned by the US DOT.
    Turns out that we have a few design features that were advanced for it's time. Of course the Mondeo has a feature we don't have - decontented when crossing the pond.

    I have also had success with using a pipe cleaner with the end coated in wheel bearing grease. Once inserted in the cylinder, with piston at TDC, I was able to retrieve the debris as it adhered to the wheel bearing grease coated pipe cleaner.

    Not sure if this site has been reviewed before, but the host changed a while back and I thought I would bring it to everyone's attention. Loads of good info for all of us, particularly those with the '97 and earlier models. The Links page is very informative as well.

    No need to purchase a new rear subframe, unless you have extensive rust. Terry is correct in regards to his comments about a good welder. New OEM rear subframes will require this modification thru metal fabrication and welding.

    Loads of good info, with prictures of the entire procedure. Unfortunately these were on the CEG site, which recently underwent changes. These changes resulted in "The CEG Forums database has encountered a problem" for each of the 10 google searches I attempted moments ago.

    Verify the routing of the two shift cables is correct. This could very well be what is resulting in the "leaning" of the shifter that you are observing as well as "notchyness".

    Yes indeed, flow improvement might be there. Don't forget the fact you can clean and redress the K&N over a very long period of time/ownership. Makes the ROI very nice indeed.
