  1. I done mine tonight, right enough it's quite easy from outside . Use rags to keep screwdrivers from damaging paintwork when you prise the old one out . Remove the number plate to make it easier as it does get in the way . Once it's out of the aperture disconnect the wiring plug , connect your new one and push it into place. cheers vin
  2. Mine just went today too on my 2010 fiesta. Seems it is a common problem. Switch costs 28 plus vat from my dealer. i looked for a guide on how to do it. Some say in through the inside of tailgate removing the wiper motor for access but another guy says you can do it easily from outside just gently prising the old one out. cheers vin
  3. Thanks for this Dan i will look for fault via your earlier post and if I don't get anywhere I will temporarily wire indicators up. Will let you know how I get on. thanks Vin
  4. Hi Dan what is the multi function switch connector? Is it the indicator switch? Any idea what I would need to connect and where? Any help much appreciated as at least I would be able to use it legally on the road. vin
  5. Hi Dan thanks for replying. Is that the fuses and relays in the engine bay? I have already checked and tried all the 60 amp fuses in that box and they all seem fine. could there be a temporary way to run power for indicators so I can use the car til I work it out? Cheers vin
  6. Mk4 1.25 Zetec electric Windows heater boot switch and indicators were intermittent but have now stopped completely. i looked in the forum and found that a relay attached to the fuse board beside the steering wheel can be at fault so I changed both but still nothing working. Any ideas? I did read it might be the ignition relay but I can't find out which relay it is . cheers for any help Vin
  7. Hi All can anyone tell me are the door locks the same in the mk5 and mk6 ? door locks are not working on mk5 so I could take them off the mk 6 if compatible. I'm not worried about the ignition as I can leave that as it is and just have different key for the doors. cheers Vin
  8. Will check it out , was yours making the same type noise ? vin
  9. If I can figure out how to upload a video to the forum I will take one tomorrow night so the sound can be heard. Could it be a noisy pulley ?
  10. Hi Ford any chance of the update? cheers Vin
  11. Hi All my 2010 sport van with 1.6 tdci makes a chuffing noise it seems to disappear if I rev it up . I looked on the forum and I think it may be the injector seals can anyone confirm if I'm in the right direction and how difficult is it to sort? Funny thing is my 2006 transit 2.4 tdci has always made a similar noise too I never done anything with it and it's been fine. I'd rather sort it on the fiesta though vin
  12. For some reason this pic has loaded rotated through 90 degrees. If you turn it to the right it makes sense. You can see the nut in question in the hole over the top of the wishbone bush. in the pic below you can see the loose bolt . if I grind it off as Scotty suggests in his post above I don't know how I can get the new nut and bolt tightened. any ideas?
  13. Scotty how did you tighten up the new bolt when you were putting the wishbone back in ?
  14. Cheers for that Scotty , I will have a go as soon as it stops raining.! I have some stuff called deblock that is usually very good but will give the plusgas a go vin
