  1. Hello, I've opened up the headlight casing and the connector block (black box connecting the wires to the bulb?) seems to have melted. Is this easy to find and replace? Ive got my MOT coming up soon and need to fix it! Thanks!
  2. Also at first I thought it was just leaking coolant, which it was. I looked at it yesterday morning and it was empty (leaked), I topped it up again last night but this morning its still full (not leaked?), however it now the water looks dirty? How do I tell for sure its a head gasket?
  3. Hi, recently I noticed my engine keeps overheating, oddly it doesn't happen gradually, I can be driving around for 10 minutes, ill stop and suddenly the engine temp shoots up, but then it will 'cool' down again very quickly, which doesn't make any sense. The cooling fan is also quite audible and it never was before. I havent had a chance to look under the bonnet properly, but whats likely the problem? Also when I turn the heaters on full the temperature quite obviously changes considerably as the engine temp changes. It seems to blow out cool air and the engine temp shoots up and then it does the opposite. This happens seemingly at random while driving. what should I check for ?
  4. its in any direction. its not that loud but its definately noticable... perhaps even stranger is that fact it's somehow fixed itself and stopped making the noise now...
  5. My fiesta seems to have developed an annoying grinding noise when I turn the wheel, it sounds like plastic scraping together. It doesn't seem to affect the steering in anyway, it's just annoying. Whats the likely culprit? Thanks!
  6. how do I find out? is there any guides?
  7. How difficult and expensive is it? Anyone with experience doing it here? Thanks.
  8. Where can I get online a rear light cover? Also is there any way I can get some new center wheel caps for my alloys? These are the alloys my fiesta has http://www.fordpartsuk.com/shop/fiesta_mk5_5_12j_x_14_5_spoke_alloy_wheel__1952.htm This picture doesn't show the center cap things, but mine have all faded and look rubbish! Thanks.
  9. Same cars, except mines silver. The interior looks nice, mines pretty clean but not THAT clean lol. Tempted to take mine in for a full valet after seeing this :P whats the going rate?
  10. Well I've been driving about 6 weeks now and I have suffered my first accident... I reversed into a wall :P Don't ask how I wasn't looking properly, now I've knocked off the bumper ever so slighty and scratched it, not really even that noticeable, just annoying. What's the going rate for bumper repair...? To be honest considering some of the accidents my friends have had, I'm doing well! So to make me feel better (lol) what were your first ever accidents and what damage have you done to your cars in the past?
  11. At the moment I have an iTrip plugged in and I'm worried about leaving it on and draining the battery, also it's annoying have to turn it off everytime, but is there any way to make the cigarette lighter turn off WITH the ignition, as in it's only got power when the ignition is on. The way it is at the moment is there's power running to it regardless of the ignition. Thanks!
  12. wow that sounds perfect. will it definitely work on the CD player I've got though? It says 6000RDS but annoyingly there are different models.
  13. So here's the deal, I have the standard CD player (6000CD) in my MK5 and I'm perfectly happy with it. It's only missing one thing I would like: an iPod connection. Is it at all possible via the connections at the back to somehow achieve this? I don't want to use an iTrip if possible. Sorry if this is a ridiculous question but I'd rather find a way to do this than change the head unit. Is there some sort of auxiliary connection on it? Thanks. Here is a picture for reference.
  14. I thought all basic unleaded was the same? Shows how much I know. So why are some fuels better/worse?
