  1. Driver Seat Tilt

    I don't see why it wouldn't be covered by warranty. They might try and fob you off in typical fashion, but I'd push for it to be done under warranty. If it's broken on a 2 year old car, it clearly hasn't lasted a reasonable amount of time (Consumer Rights Act).
  2. Only the OPs that wrote the guides can fix it unfortunately. They need to either pay the ransom or re-uploaded the elsewhere. Photobucket decided to get greedy and block all 3rd party hosting of people's images without them paying for it. Might be worth messaging the OP of a guide you want to use to see if they still have the images.

    I don't get any more bass than my old Mk3 with "sony" speakers and no sub. The better sound and bass comes from the higher quality speakers imo.
  4. Fiesta Diesel

    DPF removal is now illegal and an MOT failure. So not an option anymore.
  5. Fiesta Diesel

    It depends on the temperature, the way you drive, the type of roads you drive on. Engine speed, engine load. Lots of different factors. But it probably needs about 10-20 mins to do it's thing with a hot engine and exhaust. (i.e. engine must be fully up to temp before it even starts). If it can't do a regen it will keep trying until eventually the pressure sensors trigger a fault code and warning light.

    No its just a branding deal. They may have helped sign off the dsp in the visteon made Hu but both types of speakers are made by/for Ford.
  7. Fiesta Ecoboost 1L Engine Problem?

    No cover on the Fiesta. It doesn't fit properly due to the intake pipe.
  8. Fiesta ZS Thefts

    A bit of general discussion is fine. But please don't post links to any tools, equipment or guides that can be used to break in to cars.

    What age was it? It's not so much the mileage as the journeys. All the modern ones have DPFs. 15-20 miles per journey isn't really enough for the DPF to keep itself clean.

    The premium speakers are polymer instead of paper. If you shine a torch through the grille, you should see a slightly shiny blue coloured speaker. The cheap ones are dull black paper cones.
  11. Fiesta Diesel

    Ecoboost then. Don't bother with a diesel.
  12. Fiesta Diesel

    How many miles do you do a year and what length journeys?
  13. Your Insurance Annual?

  14. Fiesta ZS Thefts

    It would probably be a combination of OBD and the key, else the mechanical steering lock would still be on.
  15. Fiesta ZS Thefts

    The Fiesta has an immobiliser, so even after getting in, the moulded key wouldn't start the car. They must still use OBD access to program it. That's why it's always worth securing/moving it imo.
