  1. Hi There is a post about this type of issue here. Regards James http://www.fordowner...luetooth-audio/
  2. Thanks for the reply Mark...had a go at it today but couldn't find a tab...there was 2 torq self-taping screws holding mine in place, mines a 59 reg, don't know why my handbooks says "The rear fog lamps are not serviceable items, please consult your dealer if these fail" because you can change the bulb without removing the whole of the unit. Anyway for anyone needing to change theirs...there is one screw under the wheel arch just under the inner arch, and the other is on the opposite side of the unit that is very awkward to get at...am going to change the torq screws for something easier to unscrew. Best wishes James.
  3. As per title I need to change the unit got a broken lens (another victim of parking in the supermarket)...according to the owners handbook it is not a serviceable item. If anyone can let me know how it is attached to the bumper and if it's easy to detach then I can decide to order one or let it be changed at the next service which is next year and a good deal of bad weather away. Thanks in advance James

  5. Hi Paul, I got the email and I was able to use it to get a jack from my local scrappy, I hope you don't mind but I have put one of your pics in my gallery...Irononreverse posted that he would like to see what they look like and it might help some other members that want to get themselves a spare wheel, jack, and wheel brace. I can't workout how to upload pics either maybe I haven't got enough posts. Thanks again and kind regards, James.

  7. I have a trolley jack in the boot at the moment but the boots aren't that big and I would like to free up some space for other stuff like golf clubs. Best wishes, James.
  8. Thanks Paul, I have emailed my mobile number. Many thanks, James.
  9. Not sure your right about a jack being a jack, the part that connects to the body of the car differs between models and makes, if you were using the wrong one and it slipped it could do no end of damage to the user or the car. I did price up a Ford jack from a dealership and it was £48, it seemed a bit steep to me but thanks for your reply.
  10. I asked this question on another forum without reply, does anyone here have any pictures? Hi All, As in the title, can some kind member that already owns the correct jack take some pictures of the part of the jack that makes contact with the bodywork of the MK 7 and post them, so I can make sure when I buy one at the scrappy or on fleabay I get the right one. Thanks, James.
  11. Thanks M8 thats great it's exactly what I was looking for. Kind regards, James.
  12. Hi Folks, I am hoping to put a tow bar on my 1.25 zetec at the weekend, could anyone give me an idea were the clips, bolts, and screws are, also if anyone as any pics it would be helpful. I will be needing to splice in to the wiring at a later date so any info on that would be appreciated. Thanks in advance, James.
  13. Hi All, This is my first post...I have just bought a Fiesta 1.25 zetec, it is the first car I have bought brand new, and so far I am very happy with it and so I should be...it's new. With it being new I have had a dealer service offer, and also a Ford Protect Premium plan, the Ford one is for £430 and cheaper than the dealers price, and it is for the costs of the first 3 services and it extends the first year of Ford Assist (AA relay) to 3 years. It seems a good deal to me any comments and advice from other owners and members would be appreciated. Kind regards, james.
