  1. Hello all, First post here. I recently bought a 2013 1.0l ecoboost fiesta that has full service history and one previous owner. 33k miles on the clock. I've noticed some rust and corrosion on some of the engine parts, specifically two metal connectors that seem to go from the coolant pipe to the engine and then also possibly to the radiator (?) Should i get these replaced? Would it be a fairly cheap part replacement? Any advice would be appreciated. Cheers. Cameron.
  2. I have no idea about cars but I love the fiestas, so I picked up a 1.2L Zetec with the Zetec body kit which looks really cool! I've uploaded pictures however I didn't realize about the mods and gone ahead and brought it, when I get my blackbox fitted will they refuse to fit because of my mods? None of them are performance mods, btw I am going to declare the mods once I'm on the policy, So my question is will the people who come to fit the blackbox refuse to fit it ?
  3. Sup folk, I own a 2011 1.25 82 BHP petrol fiesta and it says on the parkers website i should be getting 54 MPG and get 498 miles (a tank) which is 42 litres but I'm only getting 44 MPG and 370 miles (a tank) average and was wondering if this is normal or could there be an issue with the car, I travel 64 Miles a day for 2 days a week and 30 Miles 2/3 days a week so it's not like it's getting a good run. I genrally travel 60MPH for about 12 miles then 50MPH because of the works but i barely stop. I use BP standard unleaded. i also pick up at a normal pace. What is the best revs to change at as well for fuel economy? If it's not right what can i do and is it worth taking it in to get looked at? It currenty has 69,000 miles on the odometor. Attached is the info of the car to help. Please respond to this as petrol is getting more and more expensive and I need every bit that i can save! Thanks Shaun
  4. Gear box issue?

    Recently been having an issue with my Ford Fiesta. Sometimes when driving it won’t go into gear or is really stiff to get into gear. I found that the issue occurs mostly when going into first gear. Found that when going through the gears with the engine off it doesn’t stick as much as when driving. Does anyone have any idea what the issue maybe?
  5. So I have a late 2014 Ford Fiesta Titanium X which we're very happy about apart from the £295 quote for third service. But that's another story. So my dealer invited me to the MK8 launch which my kids enjoyed (free Ice Cream) but I have to say I was quite underwhelmed by the car. I just think the front styling boring although the new LED lights are cool at night. The back is bland, just like squashed CMAX. Side is like a MK7.5. OK, the interior is a huge step up and I test drove the car and, well it drove like my car which is class leading as we all know so all good there. Apart from one thing which was the move of the Cruise Control from the right hand side to the left which I hated. My dealer obviously wanting a sale told me to come in and have a look at the new ST-Line. And again... meh, what the have done with the ST-Line really hasn't made the car much more interesting to me. Look, I know it's a great car and if you have bought a MK8 I wish you well. But unless the Vignale or ST looks a lot more interesting I really don't think I'll get one, I'll stick with the MK7.5 or get a Focus instead. I will stick with Ford anyway as I get Privilege discount. If you look at my car history I am more of a heart than head guy lately when it comes to cars, and my heart isn't in the MK8. Jonathan

  13. Anyone know the cost of a heated windscreen for a fiesta? Just bought a Cat C and only noticed there is no heated windscreen, when there should be! Thanks in advance.
  14. Radiator fan

    Hello all! I've just bought a 64 plate fiesta (titanium ecoboost) and today I noticed that the fan is kicking in as soon as I start the engine. I was under the impression that the fan shouldn't start until the engine gets a bit warmer. Is this unusual or is it a ford/fiesta thing? It's still under the 3 month warranty so if there's something wrong I should be able to get it seen to.
  15. Welcome to my build thread for my brand new Fiesta ST3 (with options of reverse sensors and a spare wheel). This is my second build thread having started one last year when I did a lot of work to Eve (Focus Mk2 Zetec Climate 2.0). We’ve now become a two car household and Eve will now be Mrs P’s car – build thread here – so I’ll still be updating that one every now and then. I purchased my ST through DriveTheDeal after getting some very good advice on the forum – see this thread for more info. I ordered the car on 18th April and was told to expect to wait 10-14 weeks before delivery but received a very surprising phone call last Friday to say that I would be able to collect the car today after a wait of just four and a half weeks. I spent the weekend sorting out insurance (ended up with AXA – best price and accept my planned modifications without altering the policy) and GAP insurance (5 year policy with Easy Gap). So here he is at the dealership: There’s a tiny paint defect on the rear bumper – I tried to get a photo but couldn’t capture it effectively – so the car will have to go back for a little touch-up in the next few weeks. Other than that the car is perfect and I enjoyed my drive back home. Having learned a lot through working on Eve I’ve already got a few modifications planned and I’m not going to hang around to do them either… Over the last few weeks I’ve been very busy researching and buying parts so that I can get Bastian just how I want him ASAP. I’m really not a fan of the ST alloys, so I knew they’d have to go. After a lot of Google image searches and trawling through online car forums and wheel shops I ended up buying some Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.2 (which were the wheels I always wanted anyway) in Anthracite Gloss. For those who are interested the original wheels on the Fiesta ST are: Diameter 17”, Width 7J, PCD 4 x 108, Offset ET47.5, Hub diameter of 63.4mm. The Team Dynamics are: Diameter 17”, Width 7J, PCD 4 x 108, Offset ET38, Hub diameter of 73.1mm. I bought the wheels from Demon Tweeks who supplied a fitting kit (spigot rings to cater for the difference in hub diameter and appropriate nuts) and I also bought a set of McGard locking nuts. Team Dynamics recommend an offset of 38 for the Fiesta and from my research on the web, consensus seems to be that offset of 38-42 is preferable. I received the wheels a couple of days ago and had fitted the spigot rings ready for installation. So, having driven home from the dealership this afternoon, I loaded up the boot and the back seats with wheels and headed to my local tyre shop to get my alloys swapped over with just 66 miles on the clock! (The ST alloys will be up for sale soon – PM me if you’re interested). Going forward I’ve got the following modifications planned (I know I should have done the security mods first but I was too excited about the wheels): Security Install dummy OBD port and relocate original Tracker – Rewire Security TK102 and hard-wire kit Cosmetic Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.2 alloys Rok Blokz Mud flaps Silvatec indicator bulbs Replace number plates Performance Mountune MP215 Audio Subwoofer – Alpine SBG-1044BR 5-Channel Amplifier – Alpine MRV-V500
  16. Hi there, A few months ago I bought a Ford Fiesta 1L Ecoboost (125bhp), Titanium, 63 reg. I have been having no trouble with connecting my phone and others via bluetooth to Sync media, however when playing music via bluetooth my car does not display track names/artists, but it does when playing music via the USB wired connection. A friend of mine has a lower spec fiesta (zetec), but a newer model (14 reg) and can get their bluetooth mode to display track names... I have been warned that these systems wok better with android phones rather than iPhones (which is what I have) and it is an android phone that my friend uses. Has anyone found similar issues? Or knows whether a 63 reg car is simply not new enough to support the track name information when in bluetooth mode, despite being high spec? Both my Sync and iPhone software are on the most recent updates... Any ideas? Thanks! drward1
  17. Hello I'm a portuguese 22y/o guy that recently bought a 5/2017 Ford Fiesta (that I think it's 7.5 cause I don't see 100% accurate info). I hope I can find here good information to make some visual/engine changes to my car in order to get it the way I love. and of course help the way I can the other members. Greets Carlos Gonçalves
  18. Ford Fiesta ST Interior

    I just got an ST. I choose it over the Polo GTI because its generally more fun to drive however, the interior and the equipment in the GTI excited me more. I knew that when I bought the ST so I'm not complaining I'm just wondering if anyone could show me some images of 3rd party headunits, perhaps like the US version which has a much better headunit. Thanks in advance.
  19. Hi, I've got a mk7 Fiesta and want to fit LED halo rings onto the fog surrounds. I have seen a few places I can buy them but my question is how easy are they to fit? I' hoping someone who has already done them can help me out! This is what I found... https://autobeam.co.uk/collections/fiesta-mk7-5-2013-2017/products/drl-indicator-led-ring-kit https://autobeam.co.uk/collections/fiesta-mk7-5-2013-2017/products/ambient-led-ring-kit Many thanks !!!
  20. Hi all I'm new to this forum, just bought a Fiesta Econetic 1.6 Lovely car but there's a strange ticking noise coming from the engine when cold. Its a rhythmic tick tick tick tick sound, about 3 or 4 per second, and goes away when cold. Any ideas?
  21. Getting under the fiesta!

    Hi everyone! I finally bought an induction kit for my fiesta. I chose the ITG from all, i feel its one of the best options. Ive been trying to install it but it is a real pain in the as*. Where the filter itself sits, there is a damn black box, that has to be relocated, but this ***** box has to mounting screws, one on top, and the other one on the bottom... that means, that you have to unscrew it from under the car and i don't know how to get there... Whats the best idea for this? i got a jack but i don't trust it, plus the jack its for swapping wheels...not going under the car. I was thinking of parking the car on a curb... not sure of what to do. Just need to remove this screw and im done! Thanks!
  22. .So,i'm planning to do a build in the future on my ford fiesta from 2004 it has a 1.3 l petrol engine and i was wondering if i can turbocharge this engine.I don't want crazy numbers of HorsePower i just want a decent ammout , and if i can what do you think i can get with a good turbo and also be "reliable" not blowing stuff every 100 miles.Another question is if i can find a donnor(AWD/RWD) car witch the driveshaft,axeles,gearbox,etc. can "fit" into mine. Ty all and if i was unclear somwere i'm sorry,english is not my native language,also it's my first time on this forum
  23. Hi all, Just wondering if it's possible to change the colour of my dashboard speedo/gauge lights? (Shown in picture) ive managed to work out how to get the cluster part out, however I need to know if this is a case of a bulb change or if it's a "skin"...not sure of the proper name for it. if it is a bulb does anyone know the size of it? And if it's possible to replace with LED bulbs? thanks in advance any help I would be really great full as I cannot find for the life of me any info on this.
  24. I have a Ford FiestaLX 2003 petrol. It's getting pretty cold now and the last 2 days my car has not been starting properly. When I start the engine the revs go up and then normally they drop down to about 1, but at the moment they go all the way to 0 and the car doesn't start. the only way I can get the car moving is by using the accelerator to force more revs so it will move. however, when I stop the car at the junction right by my house, it doesn't stall, it just stops. I have no idea what the problem could be, a friend of mine suggested it could be the choke, but I don't know where the choke is on my car. any help would be much appreciated. Cheers, Louie
  25. 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
