  1. Parking sensor issue on my 63 Fiesta

    Does it do this all the time or sometimes. Have you put the car in reverse and slowly reversed near something to see if it beeps slower. I put parking sensors on my previous car and sometimes it would have a constant beep until I get near a wall in which it would beep normally.
  2. Awful MPG zetec 1.0 Ecoboost (100)

    I've found with my zetec s diesel that motorway driving increases my average mpg to 50. Normal driving on 30 roads I got up to 37 - 38mpg. Atm its saying 48mpg and I have been on the motorway a few times but recently doing local driving on 30 roads. My car also may have a leaking injector so it could have a better mpg when fixed
  3. Fiesta Mk6.5 window regulator

    I bought a window regulator for my mk6. 5 fiesta as the driver side sounds like it's on it's way out. Have to see when that will be done and give feedback about changing it
  4. Led headlight bulbs

    I wish the law is that these bulbs can be fitted however the beam pattern should be safe that it doesn't blind oncoming traffic. I think this is how it is in America. I also wanted to say I'm thinking of getting some LED 380 double contact bulbs as one brake light filament went out on my car. I'm thinking of getting them from autobeam but wanted others opinion about this company as I never bought from them.
  5. Led headlight bulbs

    Philips do some halogen bulbs called xtreme vision which says gives up to (from what I remember) 150% more light however the light colour is a little more yellow. There's also another pair called white vision which gives a nice xenon white light (4300k) however 60% more light. The problem with halogen bulbs are that the more you increase the kelvin the less light output. There are two other types of bulbs philips sell one gives I think 5000k and the other 6000k however there are not road legal and can justify that as people who used these did complain about the little light output.
  6. Where is this from?!

    On my zetec s I just filled the hole with grease and tapped it. These bits are prone to rusting and could give problems if you wanted to take them off
  7. De-tangoing

    The only thing I don't like with fords are that they are prone to rust underneath. My dad's friend has a 2010 fiesta and just wanted to have a peak underneath and found it was more rusted than my 2006 fiesta.
  8. Rear beam conversion on zetec s

    Thanks again. Looks like it won't be any problem then however if I do think of changing them to focus ST or mondeo ST I might have to see if it fits over the wheels without spacers. For some reason I wouldn't put spacers on as I don't find it safe.
  9. (Mk7.5 St) Advice on back ache

    I'd look into the suspension if it's doing your back in. Probably change the springs to something which will raise the car slightly which may also reduce the stiffness of the ride. My dad has put several lowering springs on his car and I noticed the stiffness and how more harsh the ride is. This is just a suggestion.
  10. Rear beam conversion on zetec s

    Thanks ThaiFiesta but are the ST rear discs bigger than the ZS front discs? The cars I've had had rear drums so don't really know about rear discs compared to fronts
  11. So am planning on getting a rear beam from a MK6 ST to replace my beam from my zetec s as the ST rear beam has discs whereas the ZS is drums. One question I have is will the discs fit over the wheels? I have the standard ZS 16inch wheels. Also might replace the discs for an focus ST or mondeo ST so need to know if these will fit. I'm planning on doing this probably next year as first I need the injectors sorted out.

  13. Calipers

    Yeah that's true but I can't see a thief thinking 'oh that car looks nice because it has red calipers I might nick it'. Some of these limitations are like ways for insurers to make money.
  14. Calipers

    Might paint my calipers with a brush by the way your calipers look ThaiFiesta. That blue looks the same as the one you get on the focus RS. Just not sure wherever to paint my calipers red or gloss black
  15. Calipers

    I myself would remove the calipers from the car, sand it down, primer then get a spray can with red paint made for calipers and just spray it. Isetta's method is also good however do prepare the calipers first i.e sand them and clean them with IPA
