  1. Fiesta Bulbs List

    This isn't a dealer, this is a private mechanic ive been going to for years.   Any good links for fog light and side light led replacements?
  2. Fiesta Bulbs List

    Yes, he implied its something he is saying is a problem over all, he said if you think about how many times you are tuning the bulb on for just passing a shadow aor going under a small bridge and running on off all the time, he also said imagine all the times you don't think about it and its doing it.   Hence I Was thinking of changing the Fog lights to LED and jstu leave them on all the time, not sure on that legally though?   ANy good replacement recommendations?
  3. Cigarette power plug stopped working.

    Cheers guys, hoping it just the Fuse then, was told to drop a 15 watt fuse in to help last longer.
  4. Fiesta Bulbs List

    Well, happened to go down to book the car in for service etc. Said  to the Mech, first thing he said before I asked anything else was "Automatic Headlights mate?".....I said yes, he kinda laughed and said those systems are killing bulbs in every car that has them.   Any good recommendations for LED side lighs and Fog lights ( I read elsewhere on the site, that the Fog lights are easy enough to get to if you turn the wheels out etc?...This true? Also like a good Boot LED, if it makes any difference to the small bulb that comes as standard? The Discount code on Page on here doesn't work at Autobulbs by the way.

    Must be only about a year, always bought top Osram or Phillips. Always wearing clean latex gloves when handling.
  6. So, after buying Adaptor USB adaptor, I've realised the whole socket is not working. I realise this could be the fuse ( anyone know a replacement?). Also, is it liking their is physical damage to the socket itself, its barely  been used, so don't see how that's possible, and of so, how easy is it to replace?

    So, once again I'm having to get another yet of H7s, yet again the left one has gone out, is there a known fault for the left head light?
  8. Had A Small Accident.

    Okay, so this is difficult, removing the main back screw is dead easy, the arch material has a little give that makes the screw easily accessable, but my god the little placeholder screw at the other end, its RIGHT at the main chassis meaning you cannot get a screw to fit dead on to it, so having ot find an L shaped Phillips head ( yes, phillips head, one end torx, makes no sense!), to remove it.

    Is the plastic clip reusable after the fix?
  10. Had A Small Accident.

    Cheers for that, aprt arrived today from a seller on Ebay, genuine part, will know with the help of a mate on the weekend if I can do it myself. I look at the touch up pens but I think I might have one already.
  11. Had A Small Accident.

    Do you know of have any clue if the main bolt that attaches it is on the under side of the wheel arch, IE you have to pull the cover off to revleal it? Also, where you get the touch up pen!?
  12. Had A Small Accident.

    Hmm wonder if it might be just worth taking to my local garage then?
  13. Had A Small Accident.

    Thanks, just after posting I went looking, not to bad about £20 seems to cover the part, I can only see in pictures one bolt at the back, seems I have to replace the entire unit, so will have to wait till morning to have a look under to see whats what..really hope its not a big job!
  14. Had A Small Accident.

    So, I reversed into a small poll, no real damage, but I did manage to smash my bottom right ( facing) reflector/ light, or what I assume is the rear fog light cover. Anyone replaced one of these and know where I would get such a part from?
  15. Bonnet Wont Close Properly

    So I have this problem, its the same locking mechanism as the previous fords as well. The cable being loose is normal, it only sits tight when locked down. When you open it spray WD40 or get some oil all over the lock, the actually locking hook is on the backm you can move it up and down with a screw driver alittle and that works the lubricant in. should work every time.
