  1. I have Uniroyal Rainsport 3 tyres on my front wheels and they are magic in the wet. (which is what we normally have around here). I think David might be right and there are some unscrupulous insurance companies that would refuse a claim if you had the wrong rating.
  2. Car Door Checks

    Mine's the same as was my last Fiesta. I don't think they need to be lubricated. Incidentally, it's called a car door check strap.
  3. You've obviously done a terrific job. I'd be interested to know what difference it has made to your insurance.
  4. Awful MPG zetec 1.0 Ecoboost (100)

    I have the same car same year and my average trip is less than 3 miles. I'm disabled so I have to use the car for really short trips to the shops. I still get better than 37 mpg. I reckon there something wrong.
  5. Removing wax from black trim

    Try one of the alcohol soaked wipes for cleaning glasses.
  6. 2013 1.0l Ecoboost engine rust. Problem?

    Would a photo of my engine and mileage be of any use to you Cameron?
  7. 2013 1.0l Ecoboost engine rust. Problem?

    Mine is the same engine as yours and the same year Cameron. It has nearly the same mileage yet the pipes on my turbo are in pristine condition. I would suggest that this means that the pipes to your turbo are faulty.
  8. [Advice] Fiesta ST-Line Rust?

    Checked mine this morning. A 2013 model with just under 30,000 miles on the clock and the pipes are perfect. I think this suggests that some of these pipes are faulty.
  9. Thumping noise from tyres

    My car has been in today to have new disks and pads on the front. At the same time, my mechanic has had the rear drums off, checked the bearings all round and checked everything else he could think of. He can only suggest that it is the new tyre that is causing the noise. I am going to put the spare on and see if it make any difference.
  10. Ongoing steering issue

    Have a look round you local tyre dealers. There can be a big difference in price for the same tyre. Let them know that you are asking around and you can play them off against each other.
  11. If the tank can't pressurise then water will boil at 100 deg C. Under normal pressure it boils at a much higher temperature. Similar to the way a pressure cooker works. This is why you should never remove the cap when the engine is hot. If you do, the water will immediately boil and shoot out under pressure.
  12. A/C comes on when starting engine

    I find it strange that it comes on in all these circumstances. Mine only ever comes on when I switch it on.
  13. Zetec -so 1.25. Misfiring.

    Coil pack prior to 2006 are inclined to fail.
  14. Strange Cruise Control Issue

    Never had a single problem with it since Adam. Works every time now.
  15. First second hand advice

    I had a 2009 1.4 Titanium and it was a really nice little car.
