  1. Thumping noise from tyres

    Are the front tyres fitted the right way round? There should be an arrow saying rotation direction if they are asymmetric tyres.
  2. Grinding & stiff PAS

    Sounds like the steering rack is bent.
  3. Which service should I choose?

    Get the full Ford service, I do and you get 1 year free AA cover bargain!
  4. Is Fiesta 1.4 / 1.6 tdci mk7 reliable?

    Had my 1.6TDCi from new and no problems. If you drive less than 20K miles a year stick with petrol.
  5. Mk 7 1.4l or 1.6l Petrol?

    1K a month is 12K annually, petrol 1.4
  6. Faulty fuel tank or gauge console

    Take it to another Ford dealer
  7. Fiesta 06 1.4 tdci crank pulley

    Left mine on when I did my Mondeo.
  8. Fiesta ST-2 Bumper help

    Dealer could deny all knowledge and say you or somebody else did the damage. Looks like some form of bodging has been done already.
  9. suspected gasket problem

    Sounds like a bunch of cowboys, the 3 month warranty is irrelevant, you are covered for 6 months for any faults that were present or developing from the date of sale. He should not be charging you for faults.
  10. Ford Fiesta MK7 door seal

    Common problem and it looks like its been bodged before. Clean the old muck off and stick it down with Tiger Seal.
  11. mk7 fiesta smell of burning

    Could be a DPF regeneration, take it for a good thrash on the motorway and check the oil level before you do.
  12. Depends where you take it, ring round for some quotes.
  13. Best time to buy a new car?

    If your a cash buyer the best time to buy is November/December or through a car broker. Anything else is what the manufacturer/dealer has to offer.
  14. Ford Fiesta MK6 - Coolent

    Could be damp around the coil pack/plugs spray some WD40 on them and see if that cures it.
  15. Fiesta 1.4 tdci '06 lag/hesitation

    Check the rubber pipe from the turbo to the waste-gate, it can split, if you take the air inlet pipe off can you see the turbo spinning?
