  1. Hello, this is my first post on the forums but I can't think of a better place to ask this question. My 52 Plate Fiesta Finesse is a bit rusty underneath, the previous owner didn't take particularly good care of the underside - since it's mine now and only 70k on the clock I've replaced a few parts Brake pads Brake disks Water pump Expansion Coolant Tank Battery Thermostat Full Engine Service (Sump plug, sparks, oil, filters, etc) Ignition Coil Second hand filler neck (Rusty not corroded) However, the underside is rusty - not corroded. So I was wondering if there's an ideal solution to fix it up myself, and what tools I would need? I will be getting a jack to crawl under it. Whilst at the garage the mechanic showed me a leaky corroded filler neck and I noticed some of the rust, the garage and 2 other garages have confirmed it's in good condition for it's age and these are just age related issues. I want to get it cleaned up before it's MOT in July now winter is done with. Thanks, Dean
  2. Fiesta titanium

    Hi guys, just reaching out out to anyone who make have the same car as myself, or to the gurus of the page. i have a 2009 fiesta titanium, which is a great little car, but I am noticing things that don’t look right! Firstly the range off a full tank is shocking 275 miles, when i was told it should do a lot more than that, also the gear shift Indicator. I have it on my dash board but it won’t work? Now I thought it diddnt come with my car, 2010 models have it but mines was January 2009 when it was made! Sorry if this thread has ever came up before, I’m new to this site so not had a good look round. thank guys paul
  3. Hi, First time in this forum So here's the issue: Ever since updating to IOS11 on my iPhone, the bluetooth between the phone and my fiesta's stereo is absolutely horrendous! It pops and crackles like a vinyl record, its like having a ***** bowl of Rice Crispies in the back! Both with music and phonecalls. It's driving me up the wall, so I called Apple (who blame Ford,), called Ford (who blames Apple). It's the same for my friend who owns a similar year Fiesta and a new iPhone. So my advice is do not update your phone, or do not buy a '10 model fiesta.
  4. Hello to everyone, This is my first post to this forum, sorry for mistakes(I'm Spanish), and sorry if I had anything to do previously to post the first post... I've just bought the new Ford Fiesta ST-Line, with EcoBoost 1.0T engine (100cv/HP), and I was thinking what is the difference between the 100HP, 125HP and 140HP engines, maybe are exactly the same, but only with limitations at the ECU? With different map? If any of you have information about these engines and also if these are exactly the same as the Mk7 I will be pleased to read you, THANKS! Also, if you have a Ford fiesta mk8 with 125 or 140HP, and can take a photo of your engine to compare with mine, it will be great. Thanks to everyone.

    First upload of many... I want to show my car, actually "stock". I will be adding photos of every new mod to follow the timeline of my car.

  6. This is a re-post of my [now deleted] post on the General chat, titled: 'I'm driving around the world/Social media advice needed' from January 11th 2018. Due to lackadaisical typing I noticed several typos I couldn't go back and edit and before the post gained any more views I figured it would be best to re-post and move category. Instagram: @drive_further Facebook page: drive_further My story so far: I write this in part as you guys may be interested in my achievements which I haven't really publicised - for no other reason than the fact I'm travelling for my own personal experience. In 2016 I left England on what so far has been a 2 year road trip across the northern hemisphere (with a brief visit to west-coast America whilst I applied for Central Asian visas) in my 2002 Ford Fiesta. I've driven to date over 25,000 miles and explored countries such as Kosovo, Bosnia, Albania, Russia, Georgia ... In late 2016 I visited the northern Russian city of Murmansk experiencing temperatures as low as -22 and my car was fine! In the coming days I will cross the Ural river, the geographical feature separating Asia and Europe; and and arrive for the first time in the continent of Asia. I've severely neglected social media ad wasn't sure how best to 'advertise' my travels, I simply thought someone may be interested. I'm not looking for fame, simply, I have accumulated so many interesting stories, both car and non car related, along with tens of thousands of DSLR photos and 'car selfies.' I just thought as my story is perhaps unusual and in a Ford Fiesta someone/you all may be interested.
  7. Hi there, I am currently looking for an induction kit for my Mk6 Fiesta Zetec S 1.6 TDCI and am having no luck all I could find were better panel filters. Anyone know where I might find one?
  8. Hi guys, I own a 21013 fiesta 1.0 ecoboost zetec, yesterday evening I was driving and the car just would not go into any gear. I had it towed to a garage and the issue seems to be the clutch. I don't understand how the clutch can be gone with only 52,000 on the clock. Has anyone else had any similar issues? The mechanic is saying that it needs a new bearing and a a new clutch, he's quoted me £390 for the job, does that price seem okay? Also the car is need of a service, he's quoted me £120, does that price seem okay? New clutch, new bearing, new brake pads and service, looking at a £520 bill :/ Thanks, Zak
  9. Recently purchased a fiesta red edition with 33,000 on the clock and have found that it has a creaking noise coming from the boot latch at low speed (*anything up to 20mph), it sounds like the latch and it also makes a noise when going over bumps. This is getting very annoying so does anyone have any suggestions or should I take it back to Fords?
  10. I'm only 16 (learning to drive next month) and this is my first car so I’ve tried to personalise my car subtly to avoid looking like the 17 year old chavs we all see driving round... Here’s the car when we picked it up: After cleaning and polishing it, the first thing I did was put domed gel private plates on: Then I swapped the standard red mirror caps for black ones: Removing the ‘Ecoboost’ badge was the next change I made, and while I was at it I applied a red pinstripe along the lower edge of the rear diffuser: Not pictured are my black interior mats with red trim and red heater vent ring overlays. Thanks for looking! Let me know what you think, and feel free to suggest any other small aesthetic mods I can do
  11. Hi all. I have just imported a low mileage, one owner, 3 door 1.25 duratec in from Italy. Im just in the process of getting it ready for its first UK mot to get it registered, headlights are done. The speedo is is KPH only so I thought I’d go for a conversion plate to change the face rather than faff about changing it, however I’ve changed the faceplate and the revs and speed are all over the place and the aftermarket look of the product is naff so I’m going to use a UK spec 2nd hand unit that does mph and kph and retain the factory look, does anybody know someone other than the local ford dealer that can reprogramme the unit to the car and change the mileage to the same that’s on my European unit please? any advice would be helpful please cheers nick

  13. Just received an order I placed from DMB Graphics for some wing badges (image attached) to go in the triangular groove on the doors. Has anyone fitted these before and how did they go about it? Just looking for tips and tricks, plan on cleaning the car this weekend, warming the backing paper the stickers are currently applied too, and placing in the groove? Any tips on where these should be placed in the groove, or any other tips would be greatly appreciated. Attached an image of a pic from Instagram of a car that has them applied to show the desired look!
  14. Hello all, sorry if this has been covered already in these forums (my laptop is on a real go slow at the moment).. I am looking for any help/advise/links/info you guys have on the options for adding an arm rest type deal to my mk6 fiesta. its more about storage options and possible cup holders for the back seats than an actual arm rest for front. im looking to work over or around the handbrake between the front seats in a 2door if that's any help. Any help or advice is welcome, especially if you have tried either successfully or not to build/buy something similar yourself. hope everyone is well and keeping the fiesta flag flying high :) I am looking for something like this here but obviously more refined for a fiesta. any advise, help or general chat on this subject welcome
  15. Hi guys, Trying to help my aunt with a problem with her 2016 fiesta. The alarm has been going off since this morning but quietly. She can still drive the car, everything else works normally but the alarm can be heard. Currently parked in her work car park with it still going off. The alarm is not factory fit. She got a Clifford one fitted after she bought it with no fob, works through the key . Anyone had a similar issue? Cheers, K
  16. Fiesta Self-Service?

    Hi, Since I'm not happy with how dealerships and shops deal with repair work here in Austria (bunch of frauds and scams going on) I'm considering servicing my Fiesta myself. It's a 2010 1.25L 60 HP straight 4 with around 42000ks on it (was an old ladies car wich I got around 3 years ago with 6000ks on it, she never really drove it), I'm sure you all know it :D. Now, I know how to do most of the mechanical work and am comfortable with reading my cars errors via the OBDII port, the only thing that bothers me is: I don't know what they do at each service rather than checking the oil, maybe the head gasket and scan it. Now here is my question: Does anyone know what has to be done at a yearly service of a fiesta? Thanks a lot. :D
  17. Hi all, I own a Ford Fiesta TDCI 1.4 2006. For past couple months I've had this light come up (amber cog with ! in middle), it goes on and off randomly. Changed glow plugs, didn't fix it. Changed oil filter and it didn't come up for at least 2 weeks, until the other day. Came up first thing in the morning when leaving for work and then came on when I was leaving work. No codes from code reader (my own reader and garage code reader, apart from an acceleration code which I got told was common on my model) No codes on DTC dashboard. Really confusing me as to what it can be.
  18. Fiesta ST 2018

    Having seen the revamped Fiesta's, I'm saving the pennies for the proper Fiesta ST, not this ST-Line cosmetic changed stuff. Does anyone know of a 'release' date for this or whether it's just worth swallowing pride and grabbing a Fiesta ST-Line? Personally, I feel if you want an ST, you go all out and get an ST, not one that's just had a few appearance changes, but maybe that's me? I'm looking for the power, looks and fun to drive, not just Recaro seats ;-)
