  1. How you describe your fault is typical of a Clutch problem especially with a burning smell if this was anything but a 3cly engine would definitely be a clutch sliping and need of replacing.
  2. I also had a problem with reverse gear on my Fiesta Titanium ecoboost 2016 model .on my one I was always getting the gear selector jumping out of gear with a grinding noise when just. Lifting your foot of the clutch intermittent but regular especially on a slope . reported this to dealer who said it was standard for this to happen ?? I have just bought a new Fiesta Titanium Dec 2016 and as yet not experienced the same problem hoping it does not have the same problem as my last car as I could not understand why such a new car could jump out of reverse gear

Hi if I was you I would check the Earth connections behind the dash area not sure where they are possible by the fuse box or by the door pillars had a similar problem to this on a previous car it was just a loose Earth connection. Usually held by a bolt just loosen fixing bolt make sure good solid connection maybe more than 1 connection point sorry I have not got a wiring Diagram to be sure where Earth points are. buzzy
  9. 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.

  11. 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
  12. Hi just purchased a new Fiesta Titanium in candy red if Iam in the wrong posting please advise.

When you get your new car nice and shiny what do ford use on the pre Dellivery. Thanks graeme
