  1. No radio code to worry about. Shouldn't loose any radio settings, clock just might need resetting if you don't have GPS.
  2. You could always try disconnecting the battery for a bit.
  3. Are you making sure to not put your hand around the handle when you touch the button?
  4. You might be able to upgrade to DAB and to the Sony system & speakers if you wanted. It might be possible to fit a Sync 2 system from the US, but it would be a lot of work. Sync 3 is on the next gen Fiesta, you can't have it on the Mk7.
  5. It's just a characteristic of the IB5 box Ford use on multiple models. You get a feel for when it won't go in, sometimes lifting the clutch briefly in neutral can help line things up better if it's not having it, even when completely stationary.
  6. Surely it pulls it from the reg? If you try and lie saving £100 now, you could end up massively out of pocket if you find they don't pay out.
  7. That's a different issue though, not related to different model variants. All Fiesta variants will be made on the same production line. It's just an extension of trim levels. Each trim level is becoming more unique. Also most of the stock pile are probably VW diesels, lol.
  8. If someone didn't buy this, they'd buy something else. Ford bringing the active out won't add to congestion directly, lol.
  9. It's a job that most people think is harder than it is (myself included until i did the first one). If you're not at all a practical person then fair enough, but you don't really need to know much about car electrics if you use common sense and follow the advice and guides freely available. We don't like to see people paying unnecessarily on here and I've heard of far too many bad stories of halfords. Mainly because most of their staff are inexperienced. You get to go careful on your trims then too. :)
  10. I wouldn't let Halfords do anything to my car. Hard wiring is easy imo. Just identify the fuse you want to piggyback then get creative with hiding the cables.
  11. This is the best tool imo:
  12. I've got Nougat on my phone and not had any issues.
  13. Have you tried unpairing and re-pairing?
  14. There is a blade inside the keyfob which you could use, but I think the alarm would get triggered when you go to unlock the car. That said, if you lock the car with the blade, it might not arm the alarm, I've never tried. Try locking the car with the blade, then unlocking it with the blade and the key out or range, see if the alarm goes off. (If it does just put the fob in the car, or lock and re-lock, it should shut it up).
