  1. Looks like the whole mirror assembly will fit though. A tad expensive but whatever you fancy.
  2. Further to my last post. the price is £170 or best offer, located in Enfield, North London. Don't know where you are, no location. Last year they had front and rear bumpers, complete with the side shirts, went for £68 on auction. Someone got a bargain.
  3. Or you could just search ebay for a complete bumper. maybe in your colour. Buying all the bits new soon adds up. diffuser, both parts, £125, bumper extensions, £100, fitting is not straight forward so you'll have to pay to have them fitted, you'll hav to have them painted. Once you have done all this you'll have to alter your exhaust tailpipe, or it will kook silly. Easy if you are handy with tools and you know your way around a car, if not labour charges cost. Photo from ebay,
  4. Had mine advertised on here, no one wanted it, Binned it two weeks ago after selling the tow eye cover to someone on the forum.
  5. Juddering normaly occur when the wiping area of the blades is trying to push, like a shovel. The blade must be perpendicular to the screen, not leaning forward. iIn days of yore the blades were not ridgedly fixed so there would adopt a leaning back, wiping position, todays b;ades seem to be fixd. I find that getting an adjustable spanner closed to just fit the arms and twisting to set the arm in the correct osition so that the blade sits perpendicular to the screen works, It may take bit of trial and error to get it right.
  6. You can fit a full size wheel, 15,16,or 17 inch into the well.
  7. Of course you can buy a spare wheel and tyre, just depends on how much you want to pay and what having it means to you. If you get a puncture at 0200am, 100 miles from home what are your options? Pump in your gunk supplied by Fords with an air compressor. Hope that it seals and that the punture is only small. The gunk is not a gap filler. Go to tyre fitter and buy a new tyre and wheel, because I doubt that you will get the fitter to clean all the gunk out of the tyre and rim. Jack up and put on your spoacesaver wheel. Limited to 50mph and a distance of 50 miles. Buy a full size wheel and tyre to suit your car, Jack up and change wheel, get home go to bed,leave wheel on car until whenever. Get punture repaired in your punctured tyre. Ebay, Gumtree are ideal places to buy a full size or spcesaver wheel as is the for sale ads on this site. I bought mine. 17 inch with tyre, (£300 at Fords) for £60. A jack and brace for £15. Yes it does fit.
  8. If you Google the info it comes back as either North America or Canada.
  9. It's easy to do it yourself. Write to the loan company stating that you were mis sold PPI and you wish to make a claim. The company should then tell you if you did have a qualifying loan and then make an offer if you do. All the firms offering to do it for you at a fee are only going to do the same as you can do do. Total scams just as PPI was. Good luck.
  10. fiesta ford

    For this year car I would think that you wouls have at least a 6 month warranty. You should not have to replace tyres during that 6 months.
  11. Try closing it with the windows open.
  12. A good paint supply shop should be able to mix and put into an areosol for you, About £10.
  13. My car came back spotless. better than the Bossos down the road who are pretty good.
  14. Would maybe help if people knew where you are located.
  15. If you get your service at a Ford main dealership they give you a years Ford roadside assistance (apparently worth £120) If like my local agent they also valet your car, (£10). Just paid £190 for mine so the service works out at £60.
