  1. Hi thanks for Responce my problem is if I require to operate sat nav when ignition is switched off planing routes ect, if I have not used it recently I find the battery flat on device so I then have to keep ignition on to recharge unit while Iam planing trip. Update I may have sorted problem out if you use the cig plug on the back of the centre consul this is live without ignition on . Not sure if it goes to sleep after locking down.
  2. Hi anybody know how to make the cig lighter Live all the time mine is only live with ign on. i would like to be able to charge my TomTom go60 while Iam at a standstill as these tomtom don't seem to hold a charge very long once the ignition is switched off I have seen some discussions about the opposite problem all talking about moving a Fuse to a differant possision. Has anybody got any advise. Vehicle Ford Fiesta Titanium December 2015
  3. Hi everybody vehicle Ford Fiesta ecoboost titanium in candy red purchased Dec 2015 . Having just recently purchased this Fiesta I decided to look for info on fitting front mudflaps on this forum but could not find any info for my vehicle perhaps nobody fits mud flaps anymore.? just in case anybody is interested in fitting them the following may be of help. purchased from main ford dealership front mudflap kit part number 1531631 on installation you will find the instructions provided are terrible just pictures to follow o/k till you get to the fitting of the bolt clamp bracket the instruction don't properly show the place for the bracket I Fitted my ones on the underside of sill where there seems to be a spare piece of plastic sticking out still not sure if this is correct but looks to be the only place possible. Also you have to remove the plastic rivet at the bottom of the inner cover this is one of the fixing points for mudflap you are supposedly got to use this plastic rivet again (non in kit ) the only problem I found was that the plastic rivet is now to short to go through the extra thickness to secure it properly the rivet is only about 6mm long so will not fix correctly I am going back to dealership to see if you can obtain a longer rivet you need one about 10mm. On fitting the top part of mudflap there is a spring type "U" clip you will need a large ajustable per of grips to be able to press this onto the arch & mudflap ,I used what I call a adjustable pipe grip not sure that the correct terminology for this is. The only other thing of concern was the Quality of mudflaps not very good made of hard plastic so not sure how long these will last for. hope info is useful to somebody
  4. Hi just purchased a new Fiesta Titanium in candy red if Iam in the wrong posting please advise. My question is over the ford paint warranty can I apply some sort of protection for the wet winter we are experiencing or would ford not allow any sort of polish ect . If it's o/k to apply a polish of some sort that will not effect the warranty , out of the many products available has anybody got any advise . When you get your new car nice and shiny what do ford use on the pre Dellivery. Thanks graeme

  8. Hi Ford Focus 2001 X Reg 1.6 Zetec S , Auto , Estate VIN --------DNYT11404 Has anybody got the Ford part number for the Cambelt kit Thanks buzz
  9. Hi Thanks for your very explicit Instructions. You have taken the pressure off me to get it repaired before the Mot is due in the next couple of weeks. Sorry to be a Pain but do you require any special tools to remove the Steering wheel other than a socket set and is the clock spring a repairable item or do you just buy a new one . any Idea what the cost may be. Thanks
