  1. Well i hope you get it all sorted. Fords know about it but they dont consider it a big problem as they dont have thousands come in with that fault but unless they want a thing like toyota i feel car dealers should take charge of faults like these
  2. Yes in short you have been ripped of salesman work on commission so will always try and sell that to you. it costs ford about £25 for the big all in pack and they charge it out at £300 scotchguard is much better.
  3. There is a known ford concern for rear doors on kugas leaking so your local ford garage should know about it. it came out last week so it may be worth while looking on etis to find out or booking it back into fords. I agree with artscot79 but thats exactly what fords have done with the focus cc the hard top leaks all the time and the cc's are always in the workshop. fords know about that and yet do nothing.
  4. If you view andy towny's post i think my post will shed some light
  5. Right folks ive been reading through your posts and its nothing to do with moisture in the cluster and the year of fiesta your all descripting they dont have vehicle speed sensors its all done through the abs module. Fords not just on the fiesta but the new mondeo also have major faults with water ingress in the electronic abs module which you can replace seprately to the HCU (Hydraulic control unit) which is the mechanical part of the abs module. The abs module will cause communcation problems between the PCM (Powertrain control module) which puts the engine management light on. Causes the speedo not to work as it cant register the signals from the wheel speed sensors. Handbrake light, abs and traction control lights on as the electric module has or is storing a fault code in the memory. the led display will not work as there no signal from the abs module so cant register mileage and has communcation problems. dont drive the vehicles and slam your foot on the brake as the abs WILL NOT work and could be dangerous. I have had many of these and that is differently the faults you all are describing. Fords will be very un helpful, your only chance is asking for goodwill which means fords will pay a certain percentage of the overall cost of the repair and is based on a sliding scale. the more miles and older the car the less fords will be willing to pay. I hope this helps and please contact me if i can be of further help
  6. no thats ford for you. I know they have a problem with the rear hinges leaking, could be rear washer pipe off but then ford would have spotted that. They have problems with rear screens leaking to and i had a c-max the other day that was leaking from the rear spoiler
  7. Have you checked to see if your getting fuel up to the fuel rail? Spark at end of HT leads? There a 3 amp engine management fuse that blows in the engine compartment check that.
  8. Inlet Manifold Runner Control Valve is only on st170 is that what you got? as there a common problem on them
  9. Thats the average MPG so depends on what sort of driving condition its been in.
  10. As far as i know it requires a diagnostic unit to coded the key. I know the fords IDS can do it but i dont know of any other system that can. you can only use the 2 key system on cars pre 2000. I can code it for you but depends where you are as i would need the car also along with the new key. How much did fords want for doing it? Normally £79.50 +VAT at fords in my area which is an hours labour
  11. Sounds like the global closings out of sync put the key in the drivers door lock lock it with the key turning it right release and turn to lock it again and this time hold it in position all the windows should go up then do the same on the unlocking all the windows will come down and then do locking again then should all work ok if its the global closing if that doesn't work then its the window regulator
  12. It wouldn't fail the MOT on rusty springs only if there broken. so personally i wouldnt replace them as theres no need
  13. Thats ok glad to be of help
  14. The steering wheel is on a hexagon spline so you can move it unless you move it alot. Im wondering if either something else is bent or if they've wound one tie rod end out alot more than ment to but just got it so the steering wheel goes in the straight ahead position
  15. Idle speed control valve, controls the revs at idle and stops the car from stalling when the revs drop on deacceletion. or throttle position sensor which senses the amount your pressing the pedal and sends a signal back to the PCM, that comes part of the ETB (electronic throttle body) ford have a recall for this which envolves replacing the wiring loom, ETB and PCM (Powertain control module) later calibration. hope that helps
