  1. Windscreen wiper problems

    This happened to me twice after I retrofitted some Bosch aero wipers to my mk6.5 First time I believe it was my wax and after I replaced them this current time i think it was ice. Never had a single issue with my older ones. White vinegar is a very good idea, I used nail polish remover and it helped.
  2. Mk6 Fiesta Reversing light bulb fitting

    Tried a extender on your rachet?
  3. Instrument Cluster

    I was removing mine to change the light inside and broke the plastic on the front (very easily done). I believe if you do change for another one you need to change a few other things too. It's not very simple. Someone suggested to me I would likely need a new key and immobilizer. Not 100% sure if that's accurate but it swayed me away from doing anything else with the instrument cluster.
  4. Haggling on a Fiesta ST?

    I made the idiotic mistake of paying the sticker price for my used mk6.5 and later found out that it wasn't worth the value I paid. I do regret it but it's best to learn on a £1.3k deal rather than a £10k deal.
  5. Few questions about my fiesta ( 2007 )

    I have a 56 style and my radio does have Bluetooth and aux functions but doesn't actually have the stuff in the back to make them work. That could be the case with yours but being a zetec I'm not 100% sure. No idea about the door issue sorry. H4 bulbs for dipped/high beam and I would suggest osram night breakers (https://www.eurocarparts.com/ecp/p/car-parts/car-electrics-and-car-lighting/lighting1/car-bulb/?48177019N&0&cc5_847&gclid=Cj0KCQiAuZXQBRDKARIsAMwpUeTCc0U6NDhurKuLlZeKP6qCSc8bN5sGY_mzYv_mPd3RoEWzg_6A7tMaAhkeEALw_wcB) had them in mine since I bought it a year ago and never had a issue with the bulbs.
  6. Hello everyone! I've finally got around to buying more (moondust silver) paint and since I did quite a reasonable job respraying my spoiler (will supply pictures later when it's on) and I did well spraying my grilles, I was just wondering if anyone had any tips on removing the stock (fiesta mk6.5 style) wing mirror cover. I know how to paint it but removing it without breaking anything would be nice to know. Alot of my current improvements are just pot luck so with this one I'd prefer to know. Just a little add-on question also, everyone who has them painted seems to have only half of it painted (I assume due to covers being smaller) shall I paint the full back or mask it off 3/4 down like others seem to have. I hope you understand what I'm saying because it's difficult to explain lol

    That seems like alot of work, I will eventually do it because I'm running out of things to do lol. Love the seats by the way :-)
  8. Mk6 zetec s upgrades

    I was lucky to get some MoMo's alloys too for winter, they are alot bigger (can't remember the width) but they are gunna be very beefy for winter tyres.
  9. Fog light conversation

    I have electronic windows it's wing mirrors I was curious about. Although that is quite a informative guide.
  10. Fog light conversation

    Super easy to do (obviously looks better in the dark) the wiring is so simple.
  11. Mk6 zetec s upgrades

    They are 15s, don't think wolfrace do them anymore. I got them for £150 with brand new tyres so can't complain.
  12. Mk6 zetec s upgrades

    Look alright just need the centre logo put on
  13. Hello everyone, I seem to be having a issue after I de-tangoing my headlights. The passenger side headlight's cut off seems to go way above the other. Basically I'm in for a MOT next month and I'm a little scared it will fail due to this. Any ideas on what I've done would be great. I think I may have scratched the inside of the plastic or possibly knocked the ballast off. If anyone's had this issue please let me know below. Thanks alot
  14. Mk6 zetec s upgrades

    I got some wolfrace urban racer 7 alloys for my mk6.5 style, massive improvement over the basic steels.
  15. Fog light conversation

    I'd love to do the wing mirrors, was swapping the loom easy? Add some footwell lights, it's really easy. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F262453353235 The white ones are really good (they have a purple look due to high Kelvin count)
