      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. The hazard lights are no good here. Otherwise you'll end up flashing both fog lights when you press one of the indicators, and non will flash for the other. You'll need to use the indicator wire themselves so that you know which side is which.
  2. The wiring part looks dead easy to me, just basic electrical stuff using a multi-meter set to 12v DC. I've not really looked into it, but not sure how they mount on the fog lights, but it can't be that hard.
  3. Phone Quote Issue

    I have the same sort of issues in chrome on Android. Mostly that the clear editor button refreshes the page and the text is still in the box. I'm guessing it's just the mobile version of the site that has this problem.
  4. Tool boxes

    I have a few makeshift shelves and cabinets lying around, but they just don't feel worthy enough. I can weld, but by the time I've bought all of the square box tubing, sheet metal, paint and ball bearing rails, it would have been just as cheap and a hell of a lot easier to buy the one I pictured above. Needs to be mobile enough to wheel around the garage and have drawer slides capable of holding up 20kg or so of tools without having to drag it out.
  5. I was thinking I might need the screen too, any maybe the fascia (unless you counted that as the head unit). So depends how much you want posted, paying with PayPal?
  6. Strange stalling when parking in gear

    In all fairness you don't need to leave it in gear anyway. As long as you have completely stopped and put the handbrake on, and ensured the engine has stopped running, the car shouldn't move at all. I doubt it jolts when it hasn't been running for a few hours and put it in gear when parked.
  7. Fiesta Servicing - Main Dealer or Independent?

    Unless you get a good price, go to a local garage you know or do the service yourself. The extra money you pay going to a main dealer won't reflect quite the same when you sell the car. If you plan on keeping it for ten years then forget about main dealer, consider doing services yourself. If you're wanting to sell in 2 or 3 years time then look at trying to get a cheap service deal at Ford.
  8. Am I the only one who is meh about the MK8?

    Not a fan of the grille, wheels look diabolical on that picture. Rear end is shocking, looks like the edge or whatever it's called, and that's just a cheap A to B car.
  9. Dealer vs Private

    Indeed. I love it when dealers seem dead cross with you for lifting the bonnet and checking the levels and looking for leaks (head gasket, rocket cover etc.). I also plugged in my OBD2 scanner after one test drive and the guy looked at me as if I was stupid.
  10. Losing Things Down The Back Of The Handbrake

    DO NOT READ THIS IF YOU ARE A DRUG DEALER. So if you get pulled over want to hide your stash of coke, shove it down the hole next to the handbrake. Although it's probably just as easy to get caught, because either way you'll never see it again.
  11. Sadly the 1.0 unit (part no. AM5T) is the one without the track names. The module you will need is SYNC 1.1 (part no. D1BT). On another note, how much are you selling the DAB head unit for pal?
  12. Fiesta Ecoboost 125hp P006A

    Problem solving at it's finest!
  13. Dealer vs Private

    I think I'd prefer buying private, as long as you know what you're looking for nothing should go drastically wrong within the first few months. Quite a lot of dealership cars are bought from auction anyway, only exception is part-ex and leased cars. Wouldn't like to buy a car after somebody has leased it, there's no chance they followed the engine break in procedure. Rented cars are always the fastest as they say. Let's be honest, you wouldn't dare take your car to the redline very often, but if it's not your car then you don't care if it blows up when you give it back.
  14. Windscreen stone chip repair

    It's actually quite easy to fix as long as it's like less than an inch wide yourself if you can get a kit from amazon or whatever. Making sure the area is clean is key. The rest can be achieved with a bit of epoxy and air pressure.
