      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. A couple of questions

    Hi All, Wonder if somebody can help with a couple of problems. If somebody touches the external door handles when the doors are locked the locks itself up solid and I have to get in through the boot. I can't see anything wrong with the mechanism but then I wouldn't know what to look for anyway. When I got the car the heater didn't work on it, I put up with it for a couple of years and decided to change the valve and now I've got hot air all year round and it won't blow cold air. Is this likely to be a dodgy valve or electrics this time? The valve was new when I put it on. I have the usual problem of the car cutting out at junctions and roundabouts. I've tried cleaning the IACV but I'm not really sure if I cleaned the right bit. I've cleaned the bit that houses the solenoid but there is a plastic 'thingy' that the bolts go through to bolt onto the cover, should I have cleaned that 'thingy' rather than the solenoid housing? It's a P reg Fiesta 1.3 with the Endura engine. Any help would be appreciated. Cheers Phil
