  1. Never seen that before! Is that a left hand thread as well?
  2. Cold, and don't undo the cap when engine is hot, the cooling system is pressurised.
  3. Camskill also have some listed on their website
  4. The wheel nuts should be 19mm, the locking wheel nut fits straight on, no cover to remove even though it looks like there is.
  5. It could be stonechip?
  6. Replacement engine after your loss of compression I read about on another thread?
  7. The pads with the three protruding metal clips clip into the piston.
  8. Looks a nice car, are you sure you've ordered the right sat nav card? I thought the latest one for the sony non touch screen was the V6, just noticed you've bought a different car with a touch screen so ignore that.
  9. In that case 29-32mpg sounds about right then.
  10. I find the 1.4 engine quite adequate in the Fiesta, The 60 plate Zetec I've just bought has the stereo with an extra row of buttons, usb & bluetooth fitted, I don't think the earlier ones had the usb, the bluetooth was an optional extra when new, 70 mph at 3000 rpm sounds about the same in the Mk7, I'd say you'd need at least £4000 upwards for a tidy non cat c or d 1.4 Fiesta.
  11. Did it have a new fuel filter when it was serviced? If so there may be an airlock, although that doesn't explain why is was running fine when you collected it!
  12. The link posted for the shell oil being M2C913-B above should be ok, although the newer Ford spec is M2C913-C which is fully synthectic rather than semi, you can get the genuine Ford formula F for £19 from ebay Or Opieoils sells some different brands of M2C913-C spec
  13. I used to have a 2011 MK2.5 Focus, with bluetooth, when locked I noticed the mileage display would stay lit all the time rather than the usual 20 minutes shutdown, within 2 days my battery was flat, after reading on post on here by JW1982, the most common cause of the mileage not shutting down & draining the battery is either the bluetooth module or the car stereo, I disconnected the bluetooth module which is behind the glovebox on the MK2.5 Focus, charged my battery up & never had a problem after, I'm not sure if your's is the same fault, If I was you I'd try disconnecting the bluetooth module although I don't know where it's located on the Fiesta.
  14. Very nice Escort there, with the good old pinto engine as well, running on twin 45's? with regards to your question, try posting on the retrorides forum, someone on there may know the answer.
  15. I'm guessing petrol, the 1.4's seem to have an oil cooler, the last one I changed I used the claw type filter tool, the one with 3 legs and you use a 3/8 drive ratchet.
