      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  3. 2013 1.0l Ecoboost engine rust. Problem?

    Thanks for the support. Ford UK are going to look into the issue (Told by text) and will contact me on Tuesday between 12 and 5pm. I found an article from Denmark Ford; Ford dækker rustskade på lille motor | FDM I have translated it and saved. Some quotes; "Rusting on the cooler tube at the turbocharger on Ford's widespread 1-liter Ecoboost engine can mean additional repair costs. In dialogue with FDM, Ford announces that the company will cover the costs of the affected car owners." Rust is the most horror of most car owners. But for a handful of Ford owners who have contacted FDM, the rust has hit an unexpected and expensive place: the cooler tubes of the turbocharger on Ford's popular 1-liter Ecoboost turbo engine with 100/125 hp." And; " FDM reminds its members that they must save any evidence that a Ford workshop has refused to cover in whole or in part replacement of a turbo" It looks like Ford UK will be in violation of EU legislation if it doesn't follow suit and repair any affected units. I have also seen on the forums that B-Max owners are now reporting this issue.

    Guess what? Evans Halshaw Blackburn say that isn’t a warranty issue. I have raised the issue with Ford UK.
  5. 2013 1.0l Ecoboost engine rust. Problem?

    Looks like I have the issue. Mines a 2015 1l Ecoboost on 50k miles. I have rang the local dealer. Service dept are going to call me back. Quite worried about driving it now. Luckily I have an older 1.25 fiesta which has done 80k and never let me down, so I am going to use that for now.
  6. Power mirror issue

    HI I have a 2010 with power/folding mirrors. Daughter has just rung to say both mirrors are "Floppy" and do not work on control. She says she can move the mirrors fully with no feeling of restriction and when she lets go they flop to past the fully open point. Is this a button reset issue or are they both knackered? I do know that one has recently been clipped by a bin being moved and I had to clip it back together. Thanks.
  7. Windscreen Crack

    Have got it sorted with Directline/autoglass. repair tomorrow - hope I get home from work ok :( Thanks for the heads up on excess.
  8. Windscreen Crack

    I never thought to check that! thanks for that I was looking at the general policy excess. Will give them a ring when they open at 10.
  9. Windscreen Crack

    I have just noticed my front screen has a crack about 4-5 inches long from top and in front of driver view. I know its not repairable but I dont know whether to go through insurance company (£350 excess no damage to no claims) or search out a local garage. It is the front heated unit and I cannot find any prices online to give some idea of final cost if I go local. If anyone has had theirs replaced and can give me some insight I would really appreciate it.
