  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. 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?
  3. .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
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. Head unit problems

    Hi, I’m having problems with my head unit I believe. I always connect my phone to the aux lead and my music plays through the speakers but nothing shows up on the head unit so no song titles or information and the skip buttons on the wheel and the console don’t do anything when they’ve been pressed. In my previous fiesta the music was also able to be played through the Bluetooth and I have Bluetooth on my current fiesta but the aux won’t switch to the Bluetooth like it did in my old one. Any suggestions on what to do as I don’t want to have to buy another head unit. Many thanks!
  8. Hi everyone This is a somewhat strange question, but here goes: Does anyone know the location of the 10 speakers in the "B&O Play" version of the new Fiesta? The promotional material boasts 10 speakers, but only shows 7 (+the subwoofer) in the overview (see attached image). I have access to the car, but can only identify 7 speakers as well. Perhaps I'm blind (or deaf, rather)? :)
  9. Hey guys, So I have a Mk6 Fiesta Zetec 1.4 5 door. I love the car, it's quite nippy considering the lowish power output and it runs well, however it's done 130k miles and I can feel it's a little on it way out. I sorted a leaky head gasket by flushing all coolant and then applying some radweld! It seems to be sealed for now, also I feel the gear box is a bit dodgy on occasion as it sometimes struggles to go into 4th. Anyway, having a 5 door fez is very useful as I hate having to get out to let people in the car and I've always considered some form of sleeper, since the engine may be on its way out is and I'd just replace it. Is there any engines that would be a superior upgrade and would be fairly straightforward? I literally have no upgrades at the moment and if you have any for the 1.4 that are good to get, that would be helpful too for now rather than a whole engine swap. But overall, I was thinking a 5 door fiesta st150 would be cool! So to sum up, TL:DR, any mod ideas for the 1.4? Willing to spend £1000 max! Alternatively, a suitable engine swap that would be an upgrade with some mod-ability. Look forward to your replies! Cheers guys, Josh
  10. Hallo everyone, I am new to the forum. I accidently discovered that one part on engine {fiesta 1.3 duratec} is wet, but I don't now what it is. Car is anyhow running strong, only recently a little squeak noise is heard when engine cold. Does anyone know what is this wet part? I have a picture. Wandering of maybe an upcoming problem into the future. Thanks
  11. Hi again Guys & Girls , so i was gonna do some performance mods but you guys have shown me i cant hope for much with my 1.2L style + ahh well i guess i can live with that :P, but not one to like leaving things as they are im now looking into visual mods more. As previously intended i think im going to go for a Pumaspeed Body kit with the Excessive spoiler... because well i can really. http://www.pumaspeed...k_911.jsp&pic=6 as my car is black obviously i will be matching the body kit to that. i think im going to go for a Black theme with bits of yellow and carbon fibre dotted around it for example im thinking of getting these carbon fibre mirror caps http://www.mountunes...Fibremirrorcaps and a yellow lacker for my brake calipers because i thought it would add a nice bit of colour without looking too tacky but hey its my first car so in my opinion tack is allowed ;) http://www.demon-twe...-engine-lacquer I also think im going to get these alloys from mountune (although i was hoping for advice as my wheels currently are 15" but these are 17" so obviously new tyres would be needed but i was thinking that would probably affect the speedo too ? would it not?) so yeah what would i do about that? and is it even possible http://www.mountunes...une--MS--Alloys unless you guys can suggest something else (maybe cheaper?) i was wondering if you guys had any ideas for the inside of the car? Any comments would be great so thanks in advance guys
  12. Hi guys, Brand new to the forums and to the moding culture as well. I’m due to pick up my Focus ST Line next Thursday and have been looking st various minor mods I could make to start off and I’ve noticed a topic popping up more frequently in various forums; the lack of grill bagde for the ST Line models. Im a senior graphic designer, worked for companies both large and small so I have a good idea on how I can replicate the branding used on the wing badges and have it manufactured as a bolt on badge through the grill. It wouldn’t look like the wing badge has just been put on the front. The ST logo itself, the line and the word “Line” will be laser cut (will cleverly join them all into one so it’s cheaper to cut). I’m just wondering if it’s something people would be interested in? Not got figures or anything like that as of yet but I’m just wondering if it’s worth trying and giving ST Line owners something they can use? I’m interested in seeing the response. thanks guys!
  13. Hello everyone, I seem to be having a issue after I de-tangoing my headlights. The passenger side headlight's cut off seems to go way above the other. Basically I'm in for a MOT next month and I'm a little scared it will fail due to this. Any ideas on what I've done would be great. I think I may have scratched the inside of the plastic or possibly knocked the ballast off. If anyone's had this issue please let me know below. Thanks alot
  14. Hi guys this is my first time using this, was just wondering how do I instal the side extensions in my Ford Fiesta 2011
  15. Dashboard cluster removal

    Hello, I'm having a little trouble removing the dashboard from my mk6.5 (STyle) fiesta. I have removed the following Steering wheel upper trim Steering wheel lower trim The trim below the steering wheel (to gain access to the trim infront of the dashboard cluster) The trim infront of the cluster And two screws at the bottom of the cluster. I tried giving it a little pull but it seemed like I'm missing something, any help would be appreciated. I have looked at a few guides but they removed the rubber trim above the cluster and it doesn't look possible on my car.
  16. Having a nightmare! I have a Fiesta MK7, 2009 Zetec, I have the bluetooth module and the USB port but the bluetooth and aux cable WILL NOT work. We've looked at so many questions on here but nothing is touching it! We have tried: replacing the fuses under the bonnet and in the passenger footwell (fuse 21) turning the battery on and off installing an update via USB (just said there were no files then would not progress to the next stage) replacing the bluetooth unit (not cheap and nothing happened!) To be a bit more specific - when i press the 'phone button' it says 'Mute' and i cannot change this no matter what I press. When I press 'aux' it says 'Line in' and again i cant change this no matter what i press. When I go through menu to select blue tooth is doesn't say anything apart from bottom right 'BT off' again - you guessed it - no matter what I press it doesn't change. No idea what to do with it now and I'm sure most of you know driving down the motorway with the radio cutting in and out is so frustrating i really need this working! Please HELP!
  17. Help please where can i get the rear spring isolator pads for a mk 7 fiesta van its banging around from rear changed shocks to find the pads are rotted away Thanks in advance By the way I'm new here so hello all
  18. Fiesta ZS Thefts

    Hi All, Would just like everyone to be aware of a current spate of car thefts in the Newcastle area. Mine was stolen last Wednesday, the thieves are getting into the cars through some sort of key cloning I believe and using the OBD port to start the engine. There has been 4 or 5 stolen within a week through this method. Just want everyone with a ZS to be aware how easy these cars are to steal (even without setting the alarm off). Would encourage everyone to use a disklock or something similar. Devastated doesn't even come close to describe how I feel. This is not only keyless start fiesta's but standard key start fiesta's. Thanks and keep your car safe!
  19. Super Human Fiesta ST

    Hi I’m new to this forum, I though I’d join and post to share my experience. My daily drive is a Lotus Elise, but I’ve recently done a review of the fiesta ST and I have to say I found the car to be absolutely EPIC!!!! They’ve come a long way since my old Capri and XR2i from the 80s and 90s;O) I’ve listed the video below if anyone is interested, it’s not clickbait, its a genuine review with some tongue-in-cheek humour of what I think is the best hot hatch on the road today. https://youtu.be/Q-CEKfUaqIE Hope I’ve not broken any rule by posting my own YouTube vid, I guess someone will shout if I’ve done something wrong. Keep up the good work and remember that Lotus Cortina…..Another Epic motor!!!!
  20. Mk7 Fiesta Heater Problem

    Hi, I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction as to what the issue is with my Heater. The heater/blower blows cold air regardless of what temperature the heat is set to until the power is set to number 4 where you can hear a 'pop' type of sound and then will blow out red hot air. Then the only way to get cold air back is to completely turn off the blower and wait for another popping type of sound and the heater will then blow out cold air. Does anyone have any idea as to what this issue is as it's getting pretty frustrating trying to equalise red hot air with cold. Thanks
  21. 2 weeks ago I bought a 2012 fiesta zetec s. Since a couple of days after I bought it, the car was struggling to start a wee bit. I thought this might be because the person I bought it off barely ran it, and I mainly use it to drive to work and back (10 minutes from home). The car recently has been struggling to start a wee bit more (even if I took it big runs to charge the battery), it could sit for a few hours then it would not turn over and sound really powerless when turning the key, with lights on the dashboard flickering too. But it eventually would start. For the interior light to turn off and the dashboard to go off, the car must be locked. Is this right for this kind of car? A few times when turning the key, there has been a noise that sounds just like the noise it makes when the petrol light goes on. Just want to check that this sounds like the car battery is on it's way out before I buy a new one? And it's not another kind of problem?
  22. I have a 2006 mk6 fiesta zetec s and I want to know if it's possible to do a straight swap and have an ST engine put straight in, if this is possible I want to know how much it usually costs for the complete conversion
  23. Seat swap

    Hi all, new here, just wondering if it would be possible to fit mk7 fiesta recaro seats in a mk6 fiesta? If so, is a s simple swap or would it require some complex alterations to the car or seats?
  24. Hello all, New to this forum so not sure if this is the correct place to be posting this question? Purchased a Mk6 Fiesta with 56k on the clock. Not bad for a 2007 model, or so I thought. Recently started to have difficulty selecting 1st gear, changing gears, and stiff to get out of reverse. Local mechanic said it sounded like clutch drag, so had them replace the clutch, pressure plate and slave cylinder / throw out bearing. When the old clutch was out of the car, they said it had worn unevenly. Problem selecting / changing gears now solved, woo! However, since having the car back, after a good drive with everything warmed up, a 'rattle' develops when in neutral and clutch pedal up, which stops when the clutch pedal is pressed. This is a new noise since having the clutch kit replaced. The internet typically suggests this would be a gearbox / input shaft bearing issue, but I am wondering the possibility of it being the TOB as the noise has only been apparent since the new clutch has been fitted, and I had never heard it with the old clutch? Only happens when hot and after some decent driving (e.g. to the shops and back would not really cause the noise to surface, but a run down the dual carriageway and back would). No noise / squealing when clutch is depressed, but wondering if the 'rattle' is from the TOB just touching the pressure plate when in neutral? Not really noticed any unusual noises when driving, just this rattle in neutral sometimes. Could it also be low gearbox oil if they have not topped the box off when replacing the driveshaft? I asked the garage if they would change the oil when changing the clutch but they said it was a sealed box so they could not change it? Surely some oil must have come out of the box when removing the driveshaft and i'm wondering if they haven't replaced it and this could be causing the noise? Any help would be greatly appreciated so I can go back to them with a better idea of whether it could be the TOB or something else such as trans fluid. Only had the clutch changed last week, with the rattle in neutral present from the day I got it back.
  25. Hi everyone, This seems to be an issue posted couple of years ago but didn't find a solution. Apologies for my restricted car knowledge but keen to learn. Basically, I used to press the MAX button on my heating control unit and hot air used to blow within 10 seconds. Now, no matter what temp the car is set to, even at 30 degrees the car still blows cold air even after the car has been driving for hours. I've been told by Halfords that it's the "flap" which sounds right as when I used to turn the heating on there was a clear recognisable sound like a flap closing after 2 seconds and then the car would blow hot air in seconds. Now there is no such noise when I turn the heating on. He said along the lines the flap should close and blow hot air and open for cold air. At the moment its not closing? I've been told by one mechanic that I should just change the entire heating unit or something along those lines. If it is this "flap", which parts would I require to order? Thanks for looking! Rik
