  1. You either fit a stock exhaust or an after market one. A lot of difference in price and choice. If the exhaust is melting the rear diffuser then it is an after market exhaust. You could trim the diffuser, saw a 2012 zs the other day where this had been done. However if you have to get a new rear box anyway get one that sweeps under the diffuser. http://www.fordownersclub.com/parts-results/Fiesta/Mufflers-Silencers/61485 Take your pick.
  2. Possibly 200mm x 32 mm. Best bet is to bite the bullet and remove a drum and measure.
  3. You'll notice a difference, all for the better. The little 3 cylinder 125bhp is a great engine, torquey and responsive. You'll not be disapointed.
  4. Look's like its broken.
  5. This has been posted before, apparently it's a common problem. Ford service use silicon grease on the threads.
  6. The guy says that he is worried about having his trim pulled about, so telling him its easy to hardwire it himself is a bit naive. It is easy if you understand car wiring circuits and you have a multimeter or some other tester, if not the deal seems good. Halfords is no better nor worse than some other stores or workshops. All work on a car is hit or miss unless you personally know the fitter or know someone who has had work done there. Even then it can be a bit hit and miss. I had a Thinkware f750 front and rear camera fitted under a free fitting deal by a firm that fits and maintains fleet telemetrics. instead of getting the 3 wire hardwiring kit he wired it by cutting up the powe plud r lead, 2 wires, It ran 24/7 and over wrote everything every 4 hours. I now do my own. There is only 1 bit of trim to remove to hardwire a camera and I am sure that it would be difficult for a fitter who has done no doubt many Next base cameras to mess it up. Talk to Halfords and express your concerns and go for it. If you do it yourself or get a mate to do it, it's fuse 13 for ignition and 21 for continuos power.
  7. Welcome, and yes this has been asked before. Can't find he last post , but it was several weeks back and may have been part of an unrelated title. Anyway:-
  8. If you use 45 profiles the speedo will not show a true reading. They will make your rolling distance shorter. If you want 45 profiles you will need 17 inch rims.
  9. It would help if you posted what model, year and engine type and size you have, Otherwise it's just looking into the dark.
  10. Wrong end, I have a rear zetec S diffuser if anyone is thinking of remodeling the back end. It's just the diffuser, the black part, No bumper extensions.
  11. Looks like the main beam is out. H1.
  12. Idealy blades should be replaced every year. If the Bosch blades have given you satisfaction and confidence, replace like for like. Cheap unknown blades are a liability especially at night. ww.ebay.co.uk/itm/321881714511?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/182039358562?_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
  13. Look at the top of the forum page and you will se, " FORD PARTS FOR SALE" click, find EXHAUSTS, Click and it will bring up exhausts for sale on ebay. If I do it for you and post the link you will not learn anything.
  14. http://www.halfords.com/motoring/engine-oils-fluids/engine-oil?cm_re=mmmotoring-_-Engineoils-_-Engineoil Enter your regd or details.
  15. The rolling distance is the same as a 17 inch. The diameter is the same as a 17 inch. It will fit. Don't forget that you will also need a jack and wheel brace.
