      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. smax official trouble topic

    Hi all, like most people on this forum, I've just joined because i've got a problem, but dont worry, looks like a good site, think i'll be back to see if I can pimp my ride a bit once problems are sorted. Anyhow we've got an 07 s-max 2.5t, with full sports pack. It's only got 30'000 miles on clock. It's a great looking family car, absolutely rubbish on mpg, and I mean terrible, but is fun to drive, we've obut now got a problem with the steering. Story is the battery in key fob started to die, ended up replacing battery after having to open doors manually for a week, but think it was too late as when I replaced it didnt work. Then same day power steering packed up, I thought this may be something to do with alarm/immobiliser. Took down to local dealership today. They say there's swarf in power steering fluid, will have to change pump and steering rack at a cost of £1750. Now 30,000 miles isnt a lot, and £1750 is a lot of money, is this a common problem,
