  1. Still no replies so glad I posed the question.
  2. Thanks for the views but no one could reply,however have answered my own question by visiting the dealer. If anyone is interested it measures 38 CM
  3. Hi. Fiesta owner will soon be a new Bmax owner.Looking for information on steering wheel diameter for the size to fit a Disklok. Thank you for any information anyone can supply. Gadgetman.
  4. Hi Have just completed repair on my 2009 titanium for the air not blowing through the correct vents. Solution is quite easy but cost is very very expensive, A small electric motor is required to be replaced ( heater blend actuator) which can be obtained from a ford dealer. On my car the motor was ok,but the small lever which is attached to the motor and the linkage was broken.. Here lies the problem the small lever does not come with the motor and cannot be bought at all. The only solution is to buy a complete heater box from ford dealer at a cost of about £570 to get the parts you require. This seems to be a design fault as the replacement part seems to have modified by ford to make things stronger. If you need further details I will help if i can.

  6. HI Just to say I have a 2009 fiesta Titanium 1.6 Diesel 89bhp this is also poor on fuel. I have only covered now 20,000 in the 6 years since purchasing from new,although I only do short journeys normal MPG is in the range of winter 48ish and summer 53ish.Best I have had is 60.1 after a full tank fill up and computer reset on a 30 mile straight run. I feel that I was conned into purchasing a diesel.Tax now only £20 per year. This is the first and only diesel I have owned and it will be my last. Hope this may be of some use to people considering on buying a diesel.
  7. What is avc
  8. I have a 320GB portable hard drive with about 200GB of mp3 music files installed.Does take a time to scroll though. Hard drive cable needs to be short,otherwise not enough power supplied from the usb port.
  9. Hi Possible solution. Does car have aircon. If so does it hesitate when aircon switched on? If the above statements are both "yes",then it is because engine is really underpowered for aircon use. This appears to be normal. If the above statements are "no" then that is my possible solution,maybe someone else will have a better idea.
  10. Hi First of all what size engine? Does it have air con? If has air con does it do it when air con switched on.
  11. Hi Use self adhesive velcro strips.I have used this and it works. Stick the rough velcro to the foot rest then place on carpet ,it grips to carpet. Hope this helps.
  12. You could do a search through this forum,as it has been spoken of before. The answer to the problem was to open the door,remove the large rubber grommet on the inside of the door inline with the mirror black pillar, slacken off nut and move the black pillar in whatever direction as required,then retighten nut. No need to disassemble mirror. Hope this helps.
  13. Hi Sounds like the normal gear linkage problem,gear lever is connected to gearbox by cables,these are prone to stretching .If you know a mechanic who will do it cheaply it is corrected by adjusting cables beneath the gear lever under the car. Hope this helps.
  14. Hi The usual culprit is the washer jets on the bonnet.You will need to remove them and put sealant on the base of the jets,or leave jets in place and seal them from underneath.If jets are not sealed, will at some point lead to a possible replacement of spark coil pack and leads and plugs.This is a common fault.
  15. Yes me too.Hit a massive pothole which i could not avoid took out 2x 17 inch rims and 2 tyres.So far cost £500. Will be putting in a clain to the local council.Will let you know how i get on,claim may take months to settle if any.
