  1. Good tip. Modern cars do not get weekly checks as the older cars did.
  2. If you fit longer hangers you will have to lower the exhaust all the way along to some degree.. If you cut of the tips, what was the point of buying the exhaust.? What advantage do you think a St standard exhaust will give you over a standard 1.0ltr exhaust.?
  3. Now it looks just like all the backs of the rest of the cars on the road.
  4. The size of a spacesaver wheel is different because the rim is smaller and the profile of the tyre greater to compensate. A 14 or 15 will fit as long as its the right tyre size so that the rolling circumferance is the same as the fitted wheels. I have a new 175-65-14 space saver wheel and tyre and also a new jack and wheel nut wrench for a Fiesta. £60 if you are interested. I live in Romford, you are somewhere in Kent. We could meet up and save postage costs . I often go to Gillingham. Regards,, Karl.
  5. https://www.motorpoint.co.uk/used-cars/ford/fiesta/1.0 ecoboost titanium x nav 5dr powershift/options/-trimid=73951-maxfinance=1000-minfinance=0-fueltype=0 Maybe not what you want but will give you the ifo you need, I have used Motorpoint several times and have no complaints. You can always make inquiries or as mentioned previosly, Ford Direct.
  6. Try pushing them upwards a bit further, the top looks like there is too much flange showing.
  7. Seems reasonable if it's clear of finance and not a D cat insurance repair. Although I have to say that your valuation of your present car seems to be quite high for model and year.
  8. Thin screwdriver like an electrical tester., point it in the slot and keep it as shallow as possible and insert into slot behind clip. Move the tool to the right to depress the clip and lever out. Look at the photo on the ebay link to see what he clip looks like. The original one is metal and you should be able to feel the springyness and resistance. This is a relacement LED light. it' the complete unit but shows the clip arrangement. Unfortunately these have increased in price by £5 since last week when I bought a pair.
  9. If the car is nor registered in your name and you have insurance on another car that covers you to drive other cars then you are covered as long as the car is MoTd and taxed. You can get 24 hour cover for vehicles.
  10. I doubt that a little clip will rattle that much that you'd hear it. As a suggestion consider complete led lights http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/401171037466?_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT And cheaper. 2 minute job to replace. Better might be these. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/232196730306?_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
  11. Tax your vehicle Tax your car, motorcycle or other vehicle using a reference number from: a recent reminder (V11) or ‘last chance’ warning letter from DVLA your vehicle log book (V5C) - it must be in your name the green ‘new keeper’s details’ slip (V5C/2) from a log book if you’ve just bought it You can pay by debit or credit card, or Direct Debit. This service is also available in Welsh. Start now Other ways to apply DVLA vehicle tax service Telephone: 0300 123 4321 24-hour service Find out about call charges You can’t pay by Direct Debit over the phone. At a Post Office Go to a Post Office that deals with vehicle tax. You need to take either: the payment for your vehicle tax your bank or building society account details to set up a Direct Debit You also need to take one of the following: your vehicle log book (V5C) (it must be in your name) the green ‘new keeper’s details’ slip (V5C/2) from a log book if you’ve just bought it If you don’t have any of these documents, you’ll need to apply for a new log book. You might also need your MOT test certificate (it must be valid when the tax starts). It can take up to 2 days for MOT information to be updated, so you might not be able to tax your vehicle immediately after it passes its test. In Northern Ireland you also need an insurance certificate or cover note. If the vehicle is off the road Register that your vehicle is off the road, for example you’re keeping it in a garage. You don’t need to tax your vehicle. Last updated: 16 January 2017
  12. White or gold. Simple job to do the repaint yourself, Halfords sell brake cliper paint.
  13. Just buy a seconhand alloy that matches yours, with a tyre. Jack kits on ebay go for around £15/20 . No problems with size, speed or how far you can travel. If you are going to jack up your car and change a wheel you don't want to have to do it again tomorrow. Change wheel take the punctured one for repair put into boot. End off.
