  1. Got a 2008 titanium, no noise through the aux whatsoever. Could it be picking up interference from something you have satnav/dashcam etc?
  2. It's personal taste which manufacturer you use, price and advice from others may sway your choice but in the end it's up to you.
  3. When I had a Cavalier 1.7TD (I'll wash my mouth out with soap later) I used to buy Halfords glowplugs for £24 rather than Vauxhall £100+ set. I was lucky to get a year out of them. The first cold night of the winter and I'd get a puff of smoke out the back, check the plugs and hey presto one would be a duffer. Buy cheap and you'll buy twice or more.
  4. Beam looks the same but pic 2 appears to be a 'cooler' light (bluish)
  5. Eicher, pagid, Bosch, Brembo ATE, APEC, Juratek, to name a few
  6. 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)
  7. 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?
  8. 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
  9. Yup, West Lothian here, Doh, and posted twice :) oops, lol
  10. You could manufacture an 'extension' quite easily depending on how the gearknob is connected to the shaft.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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)
