  3. If you could have any car

    The PD170 Golfs are pretty unreliable and come with DPFs as well...better off with a 140pd model and remapping it. They still have plenty of common faults though, porous heads, EGRs and they pop more turbos than DV6s...plus if you get one with DSG that's bound to break at this age. You can get the Beemers on a 10 plate with ~100k for about £4k atm, though I know there aren't many about. I'm nearly 26 now (where's the crying emoji? ), my insurance premiums dropped for the first few years but have gone up every year since 21! I haven't had any accidents or points, now on 8yrs NCB. It's a bit of a myth that they suddenly drop at certain ages, I don't know anyone who's insurance considerably dropped at those points.

    Thanks for the replies folks. Reckon I'm going to go for it, by the sounds of it, it will make a big difference.
  6. Alternator woes?

    What you've described really does just sound like the alternator dying to be honest.
  7. Strange Ticking Noise When Cold

    Certainly sounds like tappet noise and, if so, would gradually disappear as the engine warms up.
  8. Hi, I've got a mk7 Fiesta and want to fit LED halo rings onto the fog surrounds. I have seen a few places I can buy them but my question is how easy are they to fit? I' hoping someone who has already done them can help me out! This is what I found... https://autobeam.co.uk/collections/fiesta-mk7-5-2013-2017/products/drl-indicator-led-ring-kit https://autobeam.co.uk/collections/fiesta-mk7-5-2013-2017/products/ambient-led-ring-kit Many thanks !!!
  9. This thread will help as Thai said you gotta change the module with a newer one.
  10. A warning being displayed on the dash display should generate a DTC/error code, however some codes aren't saved historically so once the error clears it's like it never happened. Really you need to be able to read the codes whilst the error is displayed, I've got a MK2 Focus and can use a modified ELM cable and free software called Forscan to view/clear codes and do a few other things. Not sure if Forscan works on a MK4 Mondeo, although a quick look online would no doubt answer that question.

    sounds like a faulty speedo console (which has a load of other stuff in it including the main microchip that controls most of the electrics). They can be dismantled and resoldered. There are companies that can recondition it for you - they take it apart and resolder parts of the circuit board where the solder has cracked / broken. Solder on circuit boards in all electronics these days has a problem with brittleness / cracking due the regulations stopping the use of lead in solder. Military / space craft etc have exemption and can still use leaded solder - because they know that any substitute is unreliable

    There are clamp on versions also
  14. Alternator woes?

  15. Windscreen stone chip repair

    If you are not making an insurance claim (and assuming you are not doing it to try to get it through an MOT that would otherwise fail) I am not sure if there is much point in doing it.
  16. Exhaust help Fiesta ZS MK7.5

    you would have to get a garage to weld it on i would guess shouldn't cost a bomb.

    don't the americans call the handbrake the parking brake? anyway, I knew what he must have meant
  18. Ford Fiesta ST Interior

    not mine, but this is a double din unit, get the plastics and unit iff ebay not sure how much heres a good thread back to 2012 prices may be different but everything should be there to do it to yours,
  19. MK4 Titanium X Estate

    Thanks for that, to be honest I'd be happy with 40mpg as a minimum (perticulatly for 200bhp). Currently we have a B6 A4 1.9tdi which does just under 45mpg, more on a run. I do quite like the fact that a tank full can last up to 3 weeks!! I think I may expand search to a Sport as I really do like having HID lamps , until you've actually driven a car with good lighting you don't realise the difference it makes. I've seen a 2.0 TIT X which I may go and see Thursday so see how it goes with that. Thanks
  20. Let me know if you need the module I have a full Dab system see below if it helps
  21. Alternator woes?

    All I'd add is my alternator packed up around the same mileage as yours (120k ish), although it was pretty sudden, one whine whilst driving then wouldn't restart. Hope you get it sorted mate!
  22. Alternator woes?

    Hi guys, soo, been getting a whine from the offside/ alternator side of the engine , been sporadic up to now but yesterday it didn't stop. No bother starting the car, once the car is on, drives fine but yesterday the crap started to mount. Basically if I turn my lights on I can't do anything else. Voltage drops from 14-12, if I turn he wipers on they go about 2/3 of their usual speed. If I urn the electric heaters on it can drop to 12 and the lights dim/flicker wipers go even slower. If I have the lights on and reverse I lose power assisted steering voltage will sometimes stick at 12 v unless I give it a little juice and it'll go back to 14. No warning lights (other than power stearing) no issues starting at all. Windows wind down fine but up is REally slow with lights on. Turn lights off and give it a little, the wipers work fine Thoughts? With the whine I'm learning towards to alternator itself and I've actually ordered one, but is there nothing else that would cause volt drop. Battery is relatively new and as I said she cold starts fine. 14.3 across th terminals, Corrosion? But would that make a whine on the alternator, without any load applied to it other than normal running . Whine isn't a belt slipping. But beyond that I couldn't say if it was a tensioner or not. Whine directly rises and falls with RPM With the nights now very early I'm in the crapper if I can't get this sorted, if i get a cold spell I'll be up the creak! Any suggestions would be appreciated!
  23. Help please, car doing a funny thing

    Yeah it would, I turned it off as it felt weird even on a small incline
  24. Hi, just put a new (well second hand) rear bumper on my fiesta, all bolted correctly, all clicked in, but it seems to be like a tiny bit out of line? and rear light on left i've noticed (which was changed) sticks out tiny bit also? Would i need new bumper brackets? i'll try upload some pics
  25. Samsung Galaxy 7 Edge or 8 Plus

    How was you battery like with not a lot of use,say 2 calls a day a few app reading like news/facebook then turn off at 8 on the night. Would i get 2 days,wasyour the normal s7 (not the edge). Lenny i would go for the S8 as some of the reviews on that are amazing.
