  1. I know this is an old thread but wondering how much it cost to have the vehicle updated with your new wheel/tyre size? Although the two tyre and wheel combinations stated are roughly identical in their rolling radius so nothing really needed changing on the speedo calibration?
  2. I noticed something interesting in the new Fiesta brochure - something that is either incorrect, or the Top Gear review has got it wrong... Suspension: Front - Independent with MacPherson struts and anti-roll bar Rear - Independent Control Blade Multi-link system and anti-roll bar Anyone have access to the new Fiesta (or a link to a website with more detail?) that can take some photos of the rear suspension set-up? If it really has changed to independent I thought they would be making more of a fuss about it. Interesting to note that the wheel/tyre sizes have also moved up a size from the previous incarnation: 195/60/15 195/55/16 etc
  3. Hello everyone, I have a 2012 Fiesta 1.4 Titanium Automatic (UK Car). A few days ago I went out for a drive and noticed an odd noise coming from the front of the car. Long story short - front OS coil spring has snapped at the base. I managed to wiggle out the broken piece. Looking to replace the spring (and the one on the NS) but there seems to be some confusion with what springs my car needs. 3 Ford dealers have told me the part number I need is: 1547179 Searching through eBay and looking at genuine and non genuine springs this part points to fitments for Fiesta diesels. Looking through some Fiesta specs from 2012 it looks like my automatic 1.4 petrol is closer in kerb weight to the 1.4 diesel manual, than the 1.4 petrol manual - so this makes me think why Ford say this is the spring for my car. 1547179 from a Ford dealer are £100 each! I'm looking at Kilen springs, although the supplier I am talking to at the moment is trying to tell me that I should be going for the spring for the petrol 1.4 (the standard spring is 13446 and the part number for the lowered spring is 13448), whereas the Kilen part number for the Ford equivalent, 1547179, is 13447. Can anyone shed any light on this, or been in the same situation? Any help would be gratefully received. Many thanks!
  4. Yeah, sorry for confusing things. The more I look around the more I saw it referred to as a MK8 on ebay. I'll correct it again if the 2008-2012 Fiesta is known as the MK7 on this site.
  5. Thanks for the reply Mathrin. It sounds like Ford didn't bother with covering this section. I'm so anally retentive that I will no doubt fashion some felt trim to cover it :)
  6. Hi all New Mk7 Fiesta Titanium 1.4 auto owner here. 2012 model, 3months old, picked it up yesterday. Looking into the boot from the rear seat area (after folding them down) I noticed that under the tailgate lip (to the boot floor - and the width of the tailgate) there is no trim covering the paint work underneath. I can even see some sealant or something with that appearence that just looks like it should not be on show. Perhaps Ford didn't bother because you can't see it when you look into the boot from the back of the car. I was wondering if any other Titanium owner's, or even any Mk7 Fiesta owner could look in the boot and see if their's is the same? Many thanks T
