      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. Just cost a small bag of gold to get our 52 Ka through the MOT and it needed new steering rack, outside sills, welding, suspension components etc which some would say 'why?' but when you factor the cost of a replacement car then the cost was okay against another year of motoring. One thing that is now a concern is that water is running into areas it isnt meant to and if allowed to continue then bodywork will also suffer. I refer to the rubber strips in the roof gutter which channel water front and back and into runaways near the boot. Our current rubber have curled at the ends and not doing their job so my question is........ replace them or is there a good enough glue to stick the current ones back down? Sounds trivial I know but if anyone has any tips then please let me know? TIA
  2. I would suspect the steering rack. Typical Ka fault and just had to have mine replaced as part of the MOT £110.00
