  1. Gap Insurance

    I am about to order my new Fiesta ( I know there is a new one on the way). The dealer will try to get me to buy Gap Insurance.I think it is a rip off - what do you think?
  2. New Fiesta - Or Not

    Many thanks for all your responses. I think I will keep it. Spend my money on s*x,drugs and rock and roll.
  3. New Fiesta - Or Not

    I own a Fiesta Ecoboost 100 Titanium, its 3rd anniversary is rapidly approaching do I buy a new one or keep this one. It is a great little car never caused any problems and I really like it but I realise that it has a newish engine with a turbo and expensive if it goes wrong when out of warranty. I have been driving for 40 odd years and during that time have wasted money on more than 38 cars ranging from a 911 Porsche, Twin Cam Escort and Frogeye Sprite but it has been fun. What do I do?
  4. Fiesta Tech (Or Lack Of It)

    I own a Titanium Ecoboost I can connect my phone but not a lot more. A new Fiesta is scheduled for 2017. Look at the latest (whispering) Corsa. Internet Radio and One Star creates your own Hot Spot .I don't think I would ever buy a Corsa but Ford seem very slow in 'Up Teching' the Fiesta. What do you think?
  5. Bumper Trouble

    I've had a bit of an altercation with a post. The rear bumper has hairline cracks in the paint. Does anyone know if there is a product available to deal with this problem rather than have the bumper repainted?
  6. Fiesta 7.5 Wonky Door.

    I have a 7.5 Ecoboost. Some time ago the drivers door sounded like a bag of nails when shut. No satisfying 'clunk'. I returned it to the supplying dealer who said it was a bodywork matter and they could not deal with it referring me to a Ford bodyshop in Penkridge Staffs. I complained to Ford HQ they said Penkridge is only 15 miles away and should not be a problem - the problem was that it is at least 20 miles away up the Car Park called theM6. Anyway having removed the door card and found nothing I took the car to my local non-franchise garage. They removed the door card and the inner panel and discovered that the strengthening strut was not bonded to the outer skin of the door. Duly bonded in and hey presto nice quiet clunk. It was worth paying to have this work done.
  7. New Fiesta

    There is a 'new' Fiesta on its way. There is a brief video on You Tube under 2016 Fiesta - not sure if it is the one we will get. Seems to have the same shape grill as the latest Focus and touch screen tech inside. I was going to change my ecoboost early next year but think I will wait a bit
  8. Clunk In Steering When Turning ?

    It is not usually the steering rack or its column but the universal joint that connects the two.
  9. Clunk In Steering When Turning ?

    I had this problem with my previous Fiesta. At first the joint at the bottom of the steering column was greased - that worked for a couple of months but the clunk came back. Then the bottom universal joint at the bottom of the steering column was replaced and problem solved. All under warranty.
  10. Mk7 Ford Fiesta Footrest Problem

    Hello. I think it must be the clamp at the bottom of the steering column. It rotates with the shaft. Not much you can do about that.
  11. Ecoboost Cam Belt/chain

    Hi folks, Does any one know if the Fiesta Ecoboost has a cam belt or chain. The reason I am asking is that I have seen it written that the engine has a cam belt running in oil - that sounds like a chain to me.
  12. Knocking Noise

    I had this problem about 18 months ago. The problem was dealt with under warranty and is well known - your dealer is not telling you the truth. At first the joint was lubricated - that lasted for a while but eventually the joint was replaced - problem solved. Try another dealer.
  13. Headlamps And Bulb Fitting?

    Yes done it with mine. Bit more fiddly than headlamp removal. Fingers need at least two more joints!
  14. 7.5 Door Panels

    Has anyone removed the door panel (preferably driver's side) yet. I know there is a guide for the Mk7 but the 7.5 is different. I do not wish to put too much pressure on the fixing since I may be doing it wrong or break them. My problem is that when I shut the door there is no longer a satisfying 'clunk' but more of a clang. I think that perhaps the sound deadening has come loose. Any help would be appreciated.
  15. Servicing Costs

    I have now had my Fiesta Ecoboost 100bhp for 12 months. I took it to my supplying dealer fir its first service. I noticed the fixed price service cost for a Fiesta is £152 in small print £25 extra for turbo. Question what extra work is done because the car has a turbocharger or is this just another rip off?
