      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. Blown Speaker (not so fast)

    I have a 2014 Fiesta and recently have dealt with what I thought was a blown speaker. Extreme scratchy sound with bases. Google search is abound with complaints about the poor quality of the speakers. I removed the offending speaker and examined it. No obvious tears in the seams. But upon applying finger presser around the edge, there was an obvious scratchy noise in certain spots of the speaker. ( i also noticed that the back of the speaker was not covered and there was water in the door panel as I had driven home in the rain the night before.) My conclusion was if water is getting on my speaker, so must dirt and dust. Around the inner cone are layers of circular material. If dirt and dust is getting between these layers it could be causing my scratchy sound. Since I already ordered a replacement speaker, I wasn't too worried to try something to get the scratchy sound to go away. I sprayed the heck out of it with WD40. Virtually soaking the center layers and pressing with my fingers until the scratchy sound went away. I set the speaker to dry and reinstalled. FIXED.
