    Fiesta Mk7 1.4 TDCI Titanium
  1. Useful stuff guys. Has anyone fitted front sensors too? How do these work, are they permanently on? Is this a nuisance in traffic? Ta Iain
  2. DTUK offer price for the CRD2 is £339 for the 1.4 TDCi but it is no longer listed for the MK7,probably following my experience trying to fit it. Most other companies don't list the MK7 either. However I have supplied them with a step-by-step guide, so it might reappear, though it's still not for the faint-hearted!
  3. Thanks Ben, Pity the workmanship was so lousy. Paint's already falling off and only had them done last Oct. So if you're around the Midlands area DO NOT use BB Classic Wheels aka BB Alloys. You'll note his website has no street address or landline no.
  4. Ok it's not Fiesta, but this is my Saab with Anthracite respray, IMHO it works well with the dark trim.
  5. I don't like the matt finish personally - looks like they're covered in brake dust.
  6. Finally got the box installed, mine was £325 on offer. Had first trip today and was impressed. Time will tell how much fuel it saves.
  7. RAC sorted it. Was air in fuel from when I had the filter off whilst searching for the right plug. Supposed to self-bleed but no way. Guy used a can of easy start to get it running and draw the fuel through. SO tomorrow we start again with the harness installation, only this time it'll just be battery and tray plus air inlet ducts (plus mirrors, torch, screwdrivers, knuckle flesh and backache).
  8. They advertise BHP @ 4000 rpm 68 -> 92 and torque at 2000 rpm 160 -> 210 Nm. No data for 0-60 but should make her a lot more driveable and hopefully more economical. I'm not bothered about top speed or 0-60, but want better flexibility around town and more mid-range punch for overtaking. If/when I get the ***** installed I'll report back
  9. Thanks. I've read that and PM'd the guy who's done it before. But since then I've sent the co. some photos and they said it was the red plug on the N/S just above the gear box. Pig to get at due to various pipes etc but I managed with a mirror, torch and screwdriver. Fitted the harness and blanking plug, but got ECU fault. Tried again with chip in, same. Stripped it all out, back to original, still dead. Waiting for RAC now
  10. Looks cool - who did the paint job? Is it paint or powder coated?
  11. Hi, I tried all yesterday to install a performance chip on our MK7 2009 1.4 TDCI. According to the vendor the plug is on the NS end of the fuel rail, but I can't find it anywhere. So far I've removed the air intake ducts, the battery and its box and the fuel filter. I've also got the air filter box loose but it won't come out as it fouls on the windscreen skirt above. I asked another co. why they don't list the 1.4 TDCI beyond 2008 and they said because the plug is near impossible to reach! Has anyone done this, or can someone tell me just where the plug is, so I can give it one last go? Cheers guys, Iain
  12. Ours is only two years old. The harness from DTUK comes with a blanking plug so you can remove the module but leave the harness in place. Believe me, if I ever manage to fit the damn thing that harness is never coming out again, but I would take the module off when it goes in to Ford!
  13. Well I spent most of today failing to fit a chip to our 2009 Mk7 fiesta 1.4 TDCI. I've PM'd Ben in the hope of a guide. Any other advice welcome. So far I have the battery and it's box out, the fuel filter out and the airbox loose but not out, as it fouls the windscreen skirt above. Still no sign of the common rail sensor or its plug.
  14. Just found this forum after tearing my hair out trying to fit a chip to the wife's new Fiesta 1.4 TCDI. Found a great topic so hoping for some enlightenment. Iain
