      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. Can i park here before 8.

    Im sure the scratches from a coat on a car like that would count as a 'cosmetic' finish lol
  2. Things I Do Like

    Precisely, bring on summer and the longer days.
  3. Things I Do Like

    I can't believe it - seems like the entire country is getting snow, bar my town!! Zzzz how boring. Nothing worse than having bitter cold but no snow.
  4. Any cat lovers on here?

    Deal, nothing could possibly make them scatter better than the mean K9 variety!
  5. Any cat lovers on here?

    Genuinely tempted to bring a dog and see the reaction
  6. Get a steering lock now

    Current car doesn't have keyless entry but I'm sure next one will, very worrying...
  7. If you could have any car

    Yeh that just about describes my experience. Huge in first year, almost half in second year, and then subsequent years around about staying the same. It's a massive con.
  8. If you could have any car

    Nope, pretty safe area, 10k mileage allowance. I suspect it's down to one of three reasons: (1) My car is expensive to insure (have no idea why it would be) - though this is the less likely option (2) My background - as an Aussie I wasn't born in the UK, so have to put down that I've been residing here 7 years. (3) Type of driver's licence - auto only. Despite the fact that I can drive manuals (spent ages practising on non-public roads in my dad's manual when younger), I dislike them, and sat the test in an auto, and hence got an auto only license. Even though I'll never buy a manual car, still do regret not getting a full manual license lol.
  9. If you could have any car

    Wow, I thought it was just me! 23 now, for the past two years my premiums haven't gone done one bit despite having a completely clean record, and accumulating more NCB. Has been going UP! How much is your premium? Mine is £626
  10. Weak Windscreen Washers

    Helicopter? Pfft, I'd be doing it Lewis Hamilton style - private jet registered in Jersey Yeh thanks for the detail and explanations you've added to the thread, could come in useful for me one day if I get fed up with it enough to make me sort it out
  11. Weak Windscreen Washers

    If I could wouldn't I be driving a much newer car? My weak jetwash stream has been like that for what 2-3 years now, doubt it would fail an MOT. But good on you for sorting yours out!
  12. Weak Windscreen Washers

    Looks much better but I predicted by the sound of the other thread that it would be an extremely fiddly and risky job, so not sure I'll bother lol.
  13. Weak Windscreen Washers

    Ok here's a thread describing the steps: In another thread, Lenny suggested putting vinegar through the system to flush out the sludge causing blockages, not sure if this will be as effective as removing and cleaning the filter, but it's a damn sight easier probably. I'll probably just try to live with it, having to remove a ***** wheel just to clean a washer filter is ludicrous, why couldn't Ford come up with some more common-sense designs.
  14. Weak Windscreen Washers

    Do the xenons on yours light up the road better than the standard halogens? I'm guessing the answer is yes, but even with the standard halogens on this car, it lights up the road far better than most other cars. So in order to access the pump, or filter (above the driver's side wheel?) what are the exact steps? My flow is also pretty weak, similar to yours. In the meantime, I'll do a quick google search to see whether anybody's already described it.
