  1. I'm on my third EB Fiesta, quite honestly a very nice car for the niche and size. Don't worry about running in, engineering tolerances, lubricants and assembly methods are far better these days than they were. Just use it, mine returns 44.7 average over my 3k miles to date and I "enjoy" the car 😉 Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
  2. Awesome Ian thanks very much. I'll get that info to him. TBH we didn't check the rears....my bad....🤔 Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
  3. Today my mate asked for help finding out why the front near side side lamp doesn't light. New bulb doesn't fix it, there's no volts to the +ve side, ground is good. The lamp illuminates when we "jumper" it to the +ve of the offside lamp. Does anyone have a pin out guide for the multi pin plug at all, or a colour coded wiring diagram for the plug they could attach as an Image here? Cheers Fordy guys.....

  4. 🤔 just take the drums off to prep and spray them lol! Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
  5. Several cars in fact! I don't miss my GP. Well OK, the turn of pace with the remap. But that's it! :) Loved my re-map, was done at Red Dot Racing £90 for 190bhp! Great value! Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
  6. I was indeed on FF! Seems like lifetime ago now.... Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
  7. I call a PCP deal TBH. No bad thing, I am too, had 3 Fiesta Zetec S's in 5 years. I found Bristol Street Motors very helpful, costs me almost no extra per month to change into a new one after 2 years. Had a White ZSE, a Black Edition and I'm now in another 140 Bhp ZSE in lovely metallic grey! Happy bunny, no final payment here... Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
  8. At some point there'll be a wire that's connected to the car body, if the indicated flashes fine on the affected side then that's probably OK. But check around all the wiring around the unit. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
  9. One, the thicker one, is the battery output, the other the alternator input. Both should be tight. It's possible to get various odd behaviour symptoms with loose wires anywhere.... Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
  10. Depends if you sell it privately, it might give the new buyer some piece of mind. Won't matter if you trade it in, they'll give you the least they can. When I traded my fiesta mk6 in (2004 model) I was given the 'book price' and once I'd agreed they then asked about service history. If you do it yourself, keep all receipts and you can write in the service manual the date/mileage etc. Fifth gear ran an article a while back on servicing your car at home. ^^^^ good advice, just do what the service schedule says with good parts and fluids.

  11. Try it, just don't scratch it. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
  12. If the fuel pick up is standard, why wouldn't all fiestas suffer similarly? Try changing the fuel filter, it certainly sounds like a fuel problem. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
  13. Manufacturers can have the oil analysed and will know if it's the wrong type. Assuming the car suffers an early life failure of course. The big deal with the Ecoboost is the cambelt, it runs in the engine oils, so the oil MUST be the right spec. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
  14. Just search the 'Web! Look up Team Heko for one... You must stipulate the year and how many doors.... Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
  15. Nice warm red led's won't light the car up, not even with the led strip fitted as well, plus, it matches with the red lighting around the cup holders by the handbrake. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
