      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. 2017 Fiesta 1.0 Reverse Gear Problems? (MK 7.5)

    Standard problem on Fiesta gearboxes.
  2. Floor mats

    They are certainly more slippery than carpet mats.
  3. How to remove wax

    Doesn't Clay Block do that?
  4. I always use a Ford main dealer but I wouldn't go near Bristol Street Motors. Bought a Renault Kadjar from them recently. Big mistake.
  5. Windscreen stone chip repair

    I had a chip repaired years ago on a Granada. Absolute waste of time. Eventually had a new windscreen.
  6. Strange Ticking Noise When Cold

    Certainly sounds like tappet noise and, if so, would gradually disappear as the engine warms up.
  7. Potential battery issues

    I wouldn't worry about it. You certainly did a good job on those terminals.
  8. Can't get mobile to sync with car

    I use an iPhone 5S and, after the last update to IOS 11.1.1 , I had all sorts of problems trying to use it to call someone through the car's system.
  9. Strange Ticking Noise When Cold

    Do you mean 'goes away when hot'?
  10. Potential battery issues

    No, that's not a problem.
  11. Potential battery issues

    There's nothing wrong with your clamps. They just want a bit of cleaning up with wire wool.
  12. Potential battery issues

    They don't look too bad.
  13. Potential battery issues

    If you use wire wool, make sure you don't accidentally connect the positive post and any part of the chassis / engine as wire wool will conduct and catch fire.
  14. 1.0 Ecoboost Disbale Stop Start

    I wouldn't be without start / stop now. My previous Fiesta was a 2010 without start / stop and I get quite a few more miles to the gallon with this one. At the moment, with half a tank left, it's showing 47.6 MPG. I've just bought my wife an auto / petrol Kadjar and that has start / stop too.
  15. Potential battery issues

    I have always used Vaseline after connecting the terminals.
