  1. Chewed Screw Head

    Yeah its a really small torx head, must me something like a T20 star bit. Will need to find replacement screw as well.
  2. Best Way To Deal With This Little Scratch?

    Buy Turtle Wax Colour Magic. It comes with a free wax chapstick that you fill in scratches with. Get the one that matches the colour of your car & clean the scratched area, use a bit of rubbing compound to blend the surface & dab & rub a bit of T Cut then use a microfiber cloth to clean it up a bit. Do it on the dark marks as well as the rubbing compound will help remove them. Fill in the scratch with the chapstick (get in as deep as you can go) & make sure it fills in all of the scratch thoroughly. Wipe the slight excess around the scratch off with a microfiber, but try not to wipe the chapstick wax out of the scratch. Give it all a good wash & then use the Turtle Wax to finish. Had my car keyed from headlight to fuel cap all the way down to the metal so learnt a few ways to bring out the scratches. Eventually had a guy I knew at Ford respray but I digress.
  3. Chewed Screw Head

    The screw that holds the cover of my cabin filter housing has had the head chewed up pretty bad and I can't unscrew it to change the cabin filter. Any suggestions on how I can get it off/out?
  4. Recall On Tdci Fiesta

    I had a letter early this year & it went in for the service. About 3 months later I had another recall notice basically saying the parts they fitted the first recall went up to scratch.
  5. Footwell Light Problem

    I think it'll likely be the fix; fitted the same LED's in my sidelights & they didn't work. Removed the headlight again & turned them around & it worked. Gonna try the footwells after work.
  6. Footwell Light Problem

    My footwell lights work perfectly fine with halogen bulbs but won't work with any LED I've tried? I've bought 8 quid bulbs, I've bought 2 quid bulbs, still nothing?
  7. Gel Overlay Issues

    A while ago I made custom badges for the front & rear of my MK7 from Heko (domedbadges.co.uk). They are great quality but the rear badge has fallen off & I'm struggling to find ANY ordering avenues for replacements. The Heko creator seems to be down & everywhere else is selling pairs that are the same size & obviously I need a smaller badge for the rear. Other sites I've found either only have badges for the facelift (mines pre-facelift) or only for the front. I e-mailed Ryan (gelbadges@gmail.co.uk) & am still waiting a reply & wanted to know of any other channels to order through in the meantime.
  8. Badge Overlays

    Has anybody ordered any through domedbadge.co.uk? I've ordered some and I've been waiting over a week. They've taken the payment but no confirmation email?
  9. Chrome Trim

    chrome time restorer sounds more like what I'm after. the stuff I've been recommended leaves a faint residue that's a pain to clear up.
  10. Chrome Trim

    was wondering what is the best product to use to clean the chrome that runs under the windows/boot/lower front grill? cleans up nice enough but can hold it's shine.
  11. Choosing Wheel Spacers..

    Idk, I'm trying to find out as much about them as I can (pros-cons ect) before I buy & why some people frown upon extended studs?
  12. Choosing Wheel Spacers..

    Prices, links or part numbers?
  13. Choosing Wheel Spacers..

    I wanna install wheel spacers all round but I don't know which ones to choose brand/size/ect.. I have 15" rims on my 2011 MK7 & I want 15mm atleast, maybe even 20mm. I've heard to stay away from extended stud ones & to always get ones that are hub centric. Suggestions?
  14. Heater Control Modifications

    I don't know, I wasn't looking into the key switch.. Just ring Ford & quote a part number.
  15. Heater Control Modifications

    Ford have listed part numbers for the different variations of the 3-button switch. Lucky for you I've done some digging around for myself; 1514081 switch bar with ESP off and two dummy caps 1513292 switch bar with ESP off, AirBag indicator light and a blind cap 1513293 switch bar with blind cap, Airbag indicator light and PDC switch 1381035 Key switch for deactivating the front passenger airbag
