  1. Beam looks the same but pic 2 appears to be a 'cooler' light (bluish)
  2. Eicher, pagid, Bosch, Brembo ATE, APEC, Juratek, to name a few
  3. The person who had it cut may not have known that the key needs a transponder, or they had lost a key, knew they were selling it so decided to have another key cut so they were handing two keys over to the garage/new owner. (Some people never try both keys when they buy a car)
  4. One on the right doesn't look like a genuine Ford key (does it have the Ford logo on the rear?) maybe previous owner lost the second key and just had one cut from a new blank minus the chip?
  5. Not so hard to do, as you said, the knob screws onto the shaft so what's wrong with adding an 'extension' onto the screwed shaft to only lift the gearknob as per the OP request. I'm assuming you don't lift the gearknob to select reverse. If you do then do as Mac801123 says
  6. Yup, West Lothian here, Doh, and posted twice :) oops, lol
  7. You could manufacture an 'extension' quite easily depending on how the gearknob is connected to the shaft.
  8. Refresh the page as I've edited my original post. The screen should be within £1000, my focus screen would have cost £650 had I had to pay autoglass for mine when it was replaced.
  9. It possibly won't be covered by the warranty but you could try claiming on it. (A new screen would be within the £1000 if it was covered) Of course 'if' your screen had a crack in it your insurance would cover it (normally) and you'd pay around £60/70 excess.
  10. Try removing the pipe and cleaning the throttle body carefully with carb cleaner. Use a soft toothbrush to do it and after cleaning the butterfly valve and Venturi lightly lubricate the sides of the butterfly valve spindle where it enters the body on either side. (google how to clean a fiesta mk6 throttle body if your unsure)
  11. Got a Yuasa HSB075 in our focus 1.6. Had similar in our fiesta and can't fault them
  12. Could it be moisture related as we've had quite a bit of wet weather lately?

    You can dry the area out using a towel or paper towel by pushing a bit down the port & letting it soak some water up. Wring it out and repeat until u get most of the water out then blast a hairdryer into the area to dry up the rest. This will save removing the cam cover but will obviously take longer to dry the port out. Once the area is dry check it for a few days to make sure a core plug isn't leaking coolant into the port.

    If the water is coming from the washer jets just remove them, clean the area on the bonnet that they're situated in then put a light covering of silicon sealant on the underside of the washer jet then reseat them on the bonnet (clean off any excess silicon). To make 100% sure mine were sealed I also put silicon on the underside area from inside the bonnet.

    Look down into the spark plug 'wells' and check there isn't any water in them. It's well documented about water getting into the 'wells' from the washer jets causing plugs/coils to blow. Had it on my own 2004 mk6 fiesta a few years after buying it.
