  1. Hi, Just looking for some ideas on mounting a tomtom in a Mk6 Fiesta. I would like to be able to put it just above the central vents where the little grooved coin shelf is, but the grooves mean laying an adhesive disk down wouldn't really work (any ideas??). The device actually fits in terms of width, in that little shelf, so its just a case of mounting. The reason being we're planning a 7500 mile road trip in Europe and we don't fancy having to remove everything (for security reasons) every time we stop. So in theory, if we could run the power lead through the dash, and leave an inconspicuous mount on the dash (rather than a suction cup on the windscreen) then we'd only have to remove the device itself. Thanks in advance!

  3. Thanks for the replies haha, I survived... I removed the right angled piece connected to the tube and the jet, and it was indeed broken. But having checked the rest of the tube for blockages and replaced the right angled part, there still is too much pressure in the passenger side, and not enough fluid getting to the driver side. I even removed the right angled piece all together and had the tube going direct to the jet but still, same problem. I shall go and check the pipes again, but there's just not enough fluid getting to the second jet. Cheers
  4. Hello Having taken my windscreen washers off for a bit of a clean, I now have a problem. After replacing, I now have more pressure in the washer closest to the resevoir. Too much fluid is entering the first washer rather than travelling to the second, causing them to be quite different. They were replaced in exactly they same way the came off, pipes and all. Has anyone had a similar problem, and know of any fixes? Thanks in advance, Harvey
  5. Rocker cover done, fairly straight forward. Ask for details or a how to. Probably do some similar colours around the bay.
  6. *Update* Rear window tint Scratch touch ups CCing windscreen washers This week will see me putting more LED strips in the rear and boot for extra light and possibly paiting my rocker cover (cleaning up the engine bay) Give me some ideas?!
  7. Hi pal, did you bother in the end? Thinking about doing my cover but can't find any pictures/people that have done so already.
  8. Cheers, yeah can't complain!
  9. Just the odd things really pal, Saving for st bumpers etc, seats. Nothing major just trying to improve it
  10. So first car and considering myself quite lucky looking at what some of my mates have! (corsa's, 206's etc) Absolutely love it and love doing things to it myself. This is what I've managed so far and I have a lot more planned for when the money is available! Military college takes up a lot of my time! Not sure why the photos have been compressed! First up was the little things... 1) Fix the power point 2) Fix the boot light 3) Aircon recharge 4) Sort the speaker rattle in the rear 5) Clearing the dealers stickets etc Then bought myself some new custom plates. Time then to sort my boring standard lights out. I ordered off of the internet so first to arrive was the sidelights. I went for a 6xLED and was so happy with the result. Before Before and after... + Then the final product. Next to arrive was the fogs Then with the main beams. I bought some and they gave me a greeny effect which I wasn't happy with at all. So with advice from the forum, I purchased some Osram's and I am happier now. Now having swapped my map light for a blue 6xLED, I chose to put some strips in the footwells (courtesy of trikidy on here) to brighten the car up . Pedals... Time to brighten up the boring, rusted callipers. 12 year old brother helping me out Finished Product LED number plate nights, but I'm not particularly happy. I would like brighter. This is it for now but plans for the future include... 1) Leather seats, ST bumpers/spoilers 2) Lower 3) Rear window tints, probably 35% 4) Upgraded speakers 5) Steering wheel stereo control 6) Chrome detailing inside 7) New alloys I'll keep you updated, any suggestions or ideas would be greatly appreciated!!
  11. I find that putting the windscreen on and using the vents (whatever temperature) works fine. Although just windscreen still works, but not amazingly quickly.
  12. I had a similar problem with a sticky gearbox and found that simply cleaning the wires and greasing it up helped a lot. With regards to skipping up I believe most newer motors don't allow for it. I think the engine will automatically match the speed of the engine to the gear you are changing into so yeah this is normal.
  13. Yeah the frame for the MK6 Fiestas are all the same so an 'upgrade' is definitely possible. Quite easy I think, although I haven't done it myself.
  14. Haha no worries
