      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. Hi All, I'm new to this forum and am hoping someone out there can enlighten me about the causes of my car's little 'quirks' and how to fix them! It's a 1996 Ford Fiesta Encore. Firstly, the rear wiper has always been a bit unpredictable; sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Now it just doesn't. I've tried cleaning the copper contacts in the boot, which is apparently what makes the wiper work, but it hasn't made any difference. Secondly, the rear window de-mister was fine until a couple of weeks ago when I noticed 4 of the lines weren't defrosting, and suddenly today none of them are working. The light still comes on when you press the button, but that's it. Thirdly (but not so important) when the fans are on (blowing hot or cold), they make a kind of high-pitched warbling noise whenever the car steers to the left. Erm.....? Many thanks to anyone who can help! J
