  1. Try eBay or amazon. I recently also found a site called Ebid where I got a bumper for £50 including delivery, after a hit and run. Cheaper than everywhere else, just need to get it painted to match car. Had my towing eye cover pinched, don't understand why as they as less than £5. Hope it's not to expensive to replace :)
  2. I had to replace mine, aux plug snapped inside the connection. Only cost a few quid from Ford but was bit fiddly getting faulty one out as it was held in place by one way clips. Had to break them but it was faulty so didn't matter to much. Easy to put new one in and the cable underneath only connects one way. Good luck :-)
  3. You can do it yourself, it's easy. You can get the "keys" to remove old radio and mount for new Sony radio from any car shop. Dealers can do it but at a stupid cost. The connections at the rear of the radio is easy to disconnect and connect to new one but you may need an adapter plug. Remember to keep a note of the radio code for the bog standard one, you will need it if you put it back in. if I can do it myself so can anyone. Good luck, Cher :-)

  5. You might have to leave earlier but driving @ approx 55mph in highest gear is more economic than at 65/70. Have a look on AA website for economic driving tips. Happy driving :)
  6. Have you tried cleaning the nozzles? I keep a pin in car and clean them regularly.
  7. I couldn't find reasonably cheap one so got a expandable one, used wire tie corsa through the back and attached to car. Simples lol. Will try put up pic when finished work. bonus of expandable one is it will fit my phone or iPod. Hope this is of use to you Mark.
  8. I have 58 plate Fiesta zetec, also just out of warranty and have this problem. I am also pleased to hear it is not a costly job. Glad I joined the site . Roll on pay day!
  9. Thanx will have a look now. :-)
  10. Looking for advice/help. Have 58 fiesta zetec and having major issues/ difficulties changing gears when the car heats up. I am finding it almost impossible to select gears. It is variable from really stiff gear changes to not being able to select any gear. The problem becomes worse if the heating is on. Becoming a little scary to drive but not sure what is wrong and don't want to get bumped by garage. Car was services and MOT'd only few months ago. Please help!! Someone!
