      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. Hi I have a first edition streetka. I am relatively happy with it although it's fuel consumption leaves a bit to be desired. It's coming up for three years old at the end of april and most of its little problems have been ironed out. I am looking for some information from other streetka owners to find out if mine has a common fault. The rear grille on my car had to be replaced last year as it had gone rusty. Ford replaced it for me through my local garage - but the same thing has happened and it's rusted again in less than a year. Ford, through my local dealer, have refused to replace it for a second time. I am now going to tackle Ford directly about this it would appear the grille has to have some sort of design fault if it's rusting within a year. I would be grateful for any advice or to hear from anyone with a similar problem. Thanks for reading, Vicki
  2. Engine Noise

    I had a similar problem when I first got my srtreetka but it wasn't engine noise. I originally thought it was power steering as my previous ka had problems. The noise occured when going round corners and when steering was getting to full lock. Noise was a bit like grinding plastic. My local garage fixed it by realigning the linings in the front wheel arches as the tyres were catching on them when steering round corners etc. It might not be the same thing but maybe it's worth a check! Good luck.
