      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. Ford fiesta Black 2003 Boot Release problems

    Hi Chris,the cable with the green end should be connected to the motor,solenoid.This is when you press on the key fob the tailgate should open. It looks like someone has already removed the motor,solenoid.They are about £15 on ebay. I already removed the old motor,solenoid & installed the one i bought from ebay.It was`nt new or great but after a few alterations finally worked. I think if you are taking a chance buying a used one,only reason i say that is of the expeience i had.Ok buy not much power. I also sprayed a little wd40 into the tailgate catch,also postioned the lower part that the catch went down onto,making the tailgate open. It only takes a few minutes fixing the motor,solenoid,as i did it myself.Hope this helps. Cheers again,Nick.
