  1. Clogged Up Mist Washer Jets?

    guys, i was speaking to my dad is who is a mechanic and he says a lot of his customers get the screenwash mixture wrong and make it too strong. seeing first hand what this does makes me wonder if this is causing this issue. the mixture being too strong made the water viscosity slightly thicker which means the pump has to work harder and this also means the washers get clogged up. my dad uses an airline to blow the washers clear. he reckons staying to the guidelines will help or mix it slightly more diluted. may or may not help....

  6. Mk7 mirrors are loose!

    hi guys, the wife's purchased a Fiesta MK7 and when i was washing her car i noticed the mirrors were loose. I opened the door and took the grommet off the reveal the torq screw and thought I'd tighten it but it was already very tight so couldnt so was hoping someone on here knows of a fix? Also, the mirror caps appear to come off very easily and they are a pain in the derrier to put back on.

    it might need an italian tune? (thrashing it for a bit to clear out any gunk) might be worthwhile getting it tuned up - this will make a massive difference. i purchased a tuning box and this had 30 modes from mild to max and i put it on 10 and the pick up was so much better. if i put it on a 20 setting then the fuel pump light would come on so played it safe with the 10 setting - there was no way i was going to go mad max on the 30 setting!

    hi mate. i sold the car in august with the blanking plate still attached. i had no issues with it at all and the car ran much better once it had been installed.

    Lenny the 4th frame from the left on the top (medium sized one) needs to be inline with the others - looks a little lower other than that it looks ace
  10. If its in good condition then get it as mine is in white. The diffuser never made it onto the car as i put an ST bumper on in the end. I shouldn't think heat would affect it unless the exhaust is touching it Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  11. Hussain i have an oem one that has a little damage (nothing major, a few scuffs and one crack) that is available cheap and looks like what Lenny has on his car.
  12. Focus Mk2 Zetec - St Bumper Change.

    Yes it will be a straight fit. You just need to change the fog and reverse lights. Um selling some if they didnt come with the bumper [emoji6] Sorry only the rear bumper will fit as the frontis different due to the lights being different. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  13. Hi Hussain how many inputs does your amp have? even if it has 2 you should be able to run both the subs off the amp using only 1 rca input. The RCA converter can be purchased from halfrauds i think or on ebay for under a tenner. Here's one for a fiver! http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Speaker-to-RCA-converter-High-to-Low-line-level-cable-lead-convertor-CTLOC15-/261278260940?hash=item3cd565decc:g:LoIAAOSw-jhUExk5
  14. New insurance TIPS ?

    Play around with your job title as this could increase the premiums I'm a Civil Servant working in IT, if i choose IT my premium will be different to that of a Civvie so try it. another thing i noticed was that if my car was on the drive (parked at night) it would make no difference to it being parked in a garage but the car had to be put away by 10pm so i told them its on the drive. Fully Comp is always better for some reason. Once you have a good quote ring the company to see if they can offer you a better deal - sometimes they can. I know Admiral did with me and thats with mods declared! DO NOT get a black box - see this weeks Watchdog for people falling foul of these boxes - insurances companies will look for a way out of paying up and will use the stats to get out - my wife worked in this industry..... Different comparison websites will offer different premiums from the same companies too so its worthwhile re-entering the info over and over again! good luck and as above, cashback websites are a must!
