  2. Windscreen wiper problems

    I have bosch areo wipers fitted on my mk6.5 fiesta and I have no problem with. Only thing I might say is the springs on the wipers aren't properly pushing the wipers onto the glass as there's very slight smearing. Are you sure these glass sealants aren't affecting the smoothness of the glass? Could recommend clay baring it to remove any fallout.

  4. Focus ST Line X 140

    Good luck and hope its all sorted for you, let me know the outcome as I hope to get mine in the next few weeks so it will be something for me to check. I am assuming these are the mats that come standard with the ST Line X?
  5. Engine humming

    Hi guys Hope all well. I was wondering if you can help me with an engine issue I have with my 2005 Mondeo ST220. When I drive it when the engine is hot or cold it sounds fine but if I hit the throttle for full power from gear 1 to 4 as soon as I back off the throttle I get a humming/rumbling noice coming from the engine. This noice only goes away when the clutch pedal is pressed fully down and the engine goes to idle then when the clutch is re-engaged the engine is fine no noice at all. But if I hit the throttle at full power again it happens again with the humming/rumbling. I have had a new clutch kit and flywheel put on my car but I've been having this problem before and after the work was done. Can you help me. Thanks Ray (FordRacer)

    In theory, all car electronic systems are specified to withstand reverse voltage and over-voltage. But in practice, with all the interconnections in a car, things often do get damaged. I assume you have checked the fuses in the engine bay fuse box as well as the passenger fusebox under the glove box. You will need to run diagnostics on it, probably not just a standard OBD2 tester, as this may only read codes from the ECU. Systems like the Ford IDS, or the readily available Forscan will try to make contact with all the modules in the car. Some bits must be working, just to get the systems fault light or message up. But it could be quite a hard job locating a fault. It may need a specialist.
  10. Are Modern cars really that fast?

    All I can say is have ago with VW R turbo I have 340 bhp not a hope in hell in catching that from a standing start due to its very aggressive launch control. But if I was to catch him at a higher speed I would give him a good run for his money. Main thing is doesn't really matter how fast your car goes in real terms it, Its really how much you enjoy it I just love that 5 pot grumble that my Mk2 does.The question is are modern cars really that fast and the answer is yes if you had a1ltr car say in 1980ish you would probably be quicker walking you wouldn't get 140 bhp or more from a 1ltr 3 pot engine probably a 3 pot engine would only be on a motor bike. A 2 ltr engine then would typically be about 110-120 bhp if you where lucky

  13. Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    This is exactly the message the dealer showed me when I ordered a couple weeks ago - they advised me it would probably be February/ March for mine to arrive but I’m not feeling to confident that will be the case if people who have ordered in June are expecting February too! Im in a bit of a strange situation with my car, am currently in negative equity on my current car which is on options, they did me a deal I was happy with but come the delivery of my new car that deal may not be so great any more seeing as id have made at least 3 more payments on the current car - Cant see it’s value falling as much as the 3 payments are!
  14. Focus ST Line X 140

    Spoke with my salesman today and I'm popping over the dealers in the morning to hopefully resolve the issue. I don't think I'll have to argue the point as the dealer has always been great to deal with. Even got a full tank of fuel when I picked the car up as a thanks for purchasing another car with them.

  16. Headlights. Traffic L/R setting plz help

    The setting is for which side of the car you drive on and also for which side of the road. UK is right hand drive and EU continent is left hand drive. *Beaten by Damian
  17. Are Modern cars really that fast?

    Yes but it looks like this!
  18. Headlights. Traffic L/R setting plz help

    It adjusts your headlights according to whether you are driving on the left hand side of the road or the right. Have you not looked in the owners book?

  20. Sudden Drop in MPG

    I stopped buying Supermarket grade fuel years ago after a pal showed me the inside of a petrol and diesel fuel filter after a year of use. Some people may think i'm wrong but it's only what i've been told, read and seen with my own eyes. Supermarket fuel is a lesser grade. Legal yes but not filtered as much as BP, ESSO and Shell. I did have issues with my old TDCI which had a gunked up filter in the fuel tank as well as a worn diesel pump too.

  23. mk3 Focus Ecoboost 1.0 125 Mods advice request

    I've got a BlueFin and although i am impressed with the 3rd gear pull for overtaking when needed i'm not as happy as i thought i'd be. Especially as it claims to improve mpg but even when driving normally i only get 40mpg to a tank whereas i was getting 50mpg. I wanted a rear engine mount but Mountune state it's only fr the 1.6 EcoBoost and not the 1.0 EcoBoost which is a tad annoying. I still get a bit of suspension engine vibration when pulling away quickly. New Eibach springs are ordered too which i hope will aid handling as well as stance. Has anyone done any other mods to their 1.0 EcoBoost Focus?
