      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Draining of the battery on my '03 1.4 tdi has become a total pain; have owned since new and it became a problem in '08 leading to AA assistance for the first of six times, the last being today! Five of those callouts have all been in Nov./Dec/Jan which suggests cold and damp effects of course, but no probs through last winter; car stands outside but not exposed. In '09 Ford Dealer who'd serviced since purchase had it back overnight to try to solve but no success. Going for months without a problem makes one forget and buying a 'booster' for those emergency occasions meant no great problems or urgency to ditch the thing. But now failed start 3wks ago and booster didn't do it.(AA sorted and replaced battery free as still under warranty and put in by previous AA chap!). Today AA again needed; again booster no use. So many permutations of where the problem is, means that no-one can pinpoint it. Is there a genius out there....coz, apart from bits of trim falling off it does what it says on the tin ...extremely well?!
  2. 03/53 Plate Fusion Owners??

    Yes, a clear problem which my Ford dealer parts chap admitted; this on an '03 bought new and still have. Had to replace driver side pillar trim having failed to 'catch it' in time on a motorway - not a difficult job to 'click' the replacement in place; no glue involved. Managed to catch the passenger side when it wanted to go walkies ...also on a motorway, but secured it with black insulating tape which barely shows. Because of that I forgot about it and it's still fine!
