  2. Fiesta Ecoboost 125hp P006A

    I would have thought so. But just remove the suspect one and visually check unless you have a vacuum pump and guage. Then you can check it in situ.
  3. Halfords Discount Cards

    I've used both together many times
  4. Halfords Discount Cards

    Not often I post a topic, but here goes... I keep getting the pop-up about the Halfords 15% card that you get through the forum. I already have a trade card through work but was wondering if the two would stack? I was looking at the industrial tool boxes. £400 on trade, but would be nice to get it for £340 with the forum discount. Doubt it would work though, most likely biggest dicount wins. Has anybody had any experience with this?
  5. The additional second washer fluid reservoir is only present on vehicles with factory fitted HID lights / headlight washers. Vehicles with halogen headlights only have the main washer fluid reservoir.
  6. Fiesta Ecoboost 125hp P006A

    Thanks, Ian ill give that a go as well. Do you know if the 110hp and 125hp recirc valves are interchangeable? Paul
  7. Radio not turning off?

    Has this always happened since you owned the car? Or is it something that has developed recently? Or just didn't notice it before?
  8. Ford Focus Mk3 Rear Bumper Reflector Leds

    I have a pair of these in my Focus for over 2 years now. i bought them on Ebay. The ones I have are good quality and are a perfect fit. The lenses are identical to the original reflectors. These reflectors have a low intensity function for sidelights (as shown on the picture above) and a high intensity function for brake lights. I do not use the brake light function because were I live additional brake lights are not allowed.
  9. DPF replacement, argh!

    Is there a particular reason they're not interchangeable if you dont mind me asking? And yup, that's exactly what I ended up doing with the fan :D
  10. Hi Everyone, I’ve posted several topics for advice on the Focus 1.0 EcoBoost 125, but I have a question for you all. If you were looking for your next Focus and you had you sights on getting the 1.0 EcoBoost 125 and were checking out car dealership websites to see what’s available for this engine configuration but whilst browsing you stumbled opon a 1.5 EcoBoost 150, would you stick to getting the 1.0 or would you go for the 1.5? What would you do and why would you do it! Liam.

  12. Windscreen wiper problems

    I previously used rain- x a while back (3 months ) and have cleaned the car windows multiple times. I would have thought that would do it? Ill try the white vinegar, thanks. @ThaiFiesta
  13. Windscreen wiper problems

    Have you used any Rain Off type liquid treatment on your screen? This can causing juddering on some brands. If not, clean both the windscreen and wiper blades with white vinegar and see how they work.
  14. Fiesta EMLconfig throttle map

    No, it's not possible to do that. There aren't just two throttle maps, it doesn't really work that way. The throttle is mapped to NOT rev high with the clutch down so you don't wreck the clutch/gearbox or shoot forward when engaging it. It may also be mapped to not allow too many revs while coasting in neutral. The petrol Fiesta ST150s don't like coasting in neutral and bounce the revs around. If it's still slow to pick up under normal driving (ie not coasting or trying to rev in neutral) then I would suggest there is another fault there.
  15. Radio not turning off?

    Afternoon all Strange one, if I shut n lock the car it seems the radio doesn't completely power down, approximately every 10 seconds you can hear the CD player spin briefly and I think I can hear the speakers turn on/hiss Anyone else had this issue? Any ideas? 2014 Fiesta Titanium with stock Sony headunit
  16. Weak Windscreen Washers

    Thanks but its not that one, I'm after the leaky one pictured above, between the two bottles. I think it's the one just cut off the bottom of that pic, 17B610A?

  18. DPF replacement, argh!

    Top tip for the fan cowling, cut part of the tab off the top corner that gets stuck with a Dremel or similar. The cowling rattles anyway but you'll never get it back in otherwise! As for the DPF, sounds like the wrong one. Extra holes are in the coated DPF (mid 09 onwards) which is much better than the old style one but not interchangeable.
  19. Hi all. Has anyone seen the rear bumper reflector leds replacements. I see a focus today with them looked pretty good. I have had a look online and can only find a few from China. Has anyone seen these for sale in the uk and has any fitted them there self? Thanks Aaron
  20. Windscreen wiper problems

    Hi all, MK7.5 Fiesta, and I'm having some serious trouble with my wipers. I've replaced them twice since March, both times with Bosch Aerotwin top spec ones. They work fine for a while, then they start juddering really badly, I've put a video on here (hopefully it's worked) and its in slow motion to show just how bad the wipers are. Is there something I can tighten, twist or adjust to fix this? Thanks
  21. Hi all I'm new to this forum, just bought a Fiesta Econetic 1.6 Lovely car but there's a strange ticking noise coming from the engine when cold. Its a rhythmic tick tick tick tick sound, about 3 or 4 per second, and goes away when cold. Any ideas?
  22. DPF replacement, argh!

    After spending most of the morning wrestling with the removal of the damn cooling fan, I've gotten my DPF out to replace it with a refurbed part. So far so good, until I notice a slight variation in the models :( The DPF that came out is moden 8M51-SH270-AA, the one I have been sent is 9M51-5H270-DA They appear identical with the exception of 2 extra ports in the top of the one I've been sent presumably for some sort of sensors. Have I been sent the wrong part? Can I fit the new one and block the holes with appropriate size bolts?

  24. Fiesta EMLconfig throttle map

    ELMconfig - apologies for the spelling error! Does anyone have advice? Should I have posted on a different part of the forum, or can anyone suggest someone I could contact for advice? Googling has found a guy called James Simpson: https://www.jamessimpson.co.uk/getting-started-elmconfig/ but I'd rather not bother the guy if the question I'm asking is common knowledge... Cheers, Neil
  25. Air bag deactivation key/insurance

    Admiral take the mick with their renewals now... Mine shot up this year and so did my parents multicar policy. Unfortunately I'm in an odd situation which means there are very few companies that will insure me so I had no choice but to stick with them. I hope to have changed car for something totally standard by next renewal (March) as the remap is part of the problem. I did get to the point of deciding to just not declare it, the car is standard otherwise, and I'm sure they'll find something to get out of paying if I tried to claim for my own car anyway (they cant avoid 3rd party claims) so it seems pointless letting it cause so much extra hassle and cost, but I just know I'd be constantly worried about it so did keep it declared this year.
  26. Fuel Gauge

    if both the temp and fuel gauge show they same symptons at identical times - dropping and going back up, then I don't see it being a sensor problem, more a problem with the speedo console unit inside
