  1. Just wondering if anyone knows if you can either fold in or push in the wing mirrors on a Ford Ka Zetec? i have a 13 plate
  2. Hi all, In a similar style to the MK1 Focus thread I started yesterday I am also looking for common problems on MK2 Focus models. I will also be looking to eventually put together a buyers guide for these models so any feedback you could give would be much appreciated! :) James
  3. Please help, any one any ideas? a couple of weeks ago my ford fiesta edge started making these high pitched whistling noise, no effect on performance at all and no warning lights, even took it in for mot, mentioned it to the garage and it still passed fine, they said they couldn't hear it and didn't notice anything under the bonnet... what im finding odd is there is no particular times when this seems to happen, i.e. its not always when accelerating, breaking or turning ?? it just seems to happen randomly, it could go for miles and miles with nothing then have a bad 5 minutes, then other times it will be bad as soon i set off in it and the noise will fade ... even got my friend who is a mechanic to come round the block with me to see if he had any ideas and of course at this time it was quiet as a mouse, next day going to work i could see other drivers looking over at the car obviously hearing the noise , most of the time its not terribly loud, but can be sometimes. please any ideas let me know its driving me mad :)
  4. Hi, yesterday I noticed I was leaking oil. Originally assumed it was engine oil but looking underneath the car I think its pretty much coming from a gearbox sensor,,, Unfortunately I don't know which sensor is it (check manual and haynes), its near the front of the car, on the gear box (more to the passenger side)
  5. Hello, Firstly, not sure if this is in the right section so apologies if not! I've got a 2015 Ford Focus zetec and until today it's been working beautifully. The problem I'm getting is when I get in the car plug the phone in and turn on the ignition it starts charging and connecting to either music or Spotify, after a few seconds however, it'll say USB 1 (or 2, depending on the port) device removed. But it'll definitely still be plugged in. It then stops charging the phone. ive tried removing and plugging it back in with absolutely nothing happening (no charging or sync notifications) on either USB port. The only way I can get to do anything is by turning the ignition off, opening the door, closing the door and turning the ignition back on, but then I'm back to square one with the disconnecting after 5-10 secconds. I've also tried a sync master reset with no luck and the issue still occuring. Im really hoping someone here can help as it used to be working like a dream! Thanks in advance! Tom
  6. I have a 2014 Ford Fiesta. The passenger speaker sometimes has a weird static. It happens with all input devices from bluetooth audio, sirius XM, or radio. Even the sound from activating the voice commands sound is this way. It doesn't happen all the time, and I can't determine what is the cause or solution for the problem. Every time I am about to take it into Ford, it doesn't have this issue. Sometimes it will be perfectly fine for months. Other times it will sound like it has a static type noise distortion. It almost sounds like a radio station with bad reception. Any ideas?
  7. Hi guys! I own a Ford Fiesta from 2014 with 113.000 Km on board. Unfortunately, my original wheels took so much damage from the romanian roads that I had to buy new rims on which I didn't mount the pressure sensors. Of course, this means that I now constantly get the "tyre malfunction" error. Is there a way to disable TPMS? I was thinking to buy an OBD2 interface (http://elm327.ro/blue21) chip and then "somehow" I would disable this from some application. Is this even possible? Did someone already try this? Any advice is much appreciated.
  8. Hey All, Just to let you all know the cheap service deal that Ford had which included the years free AA breakdown cover has now been "revised" aka its now no longer worth doing! See the link below for the update worklist: http://www.ford.co.uk/OwnerServices/Motorcraft/Servicing Its a real shame, the old service included so much more (plus the breakdown cover with AA for a year) for £125! Now its £145 for bugger all. As they say, good things never last!
  9. Hi, I currently own a 2003 ford fiesta Zetec and it doesn't have a rear spoiler its flat and doesn't look too cracking, I want to upgrade it and put a subtle spoiler on the back, what model spoilers will fit my car? as I'd love to upgrade it. I'm a bit of a noob when it comes to my car as I'm only 18 years old and don't know anything. some help would be really appreciated Thank you.
  10. Hello all, I'm looking after lowering my fiesta, I decided to go for lowering springs as they are cheaper comparing to coilovers. If I was going to fit them do I need to get anything done on top of that? What I mean by that do I need a new alignment or mess with the struts or anything like that? Never done it before so I wanna know everything before hand, and if anyone has any recommendations of what springs to go for let me know Thank you for any help,
  11. Hi all, I've got a bit of a problem with my Fiesta not starting. When you put the key in and turn it there's no response from the dash (no lights or anything). Turning the key all the way does absolutely nothing (pump not priming, not clicking etc.). The interior light works and the horn but as far as I can tell nothing else is working!! I've tried a spare key and swapping the relays under the bonnet around and still not getting anything. Battery has been tested and is fine. Does anyone have any ideas? I'm suspecting the ECU has died for some reason. Also does anyone have a diagram for the under bonnet fuse box? I think I may have put one of the small fuses back in the wrong place when checking them...
  12. Hi All, I am looking to change the display on my 2013 Zetec mk 7.5. I currently have the blue back-lit screen and am looking to upgrade to the colour display used in the titaniums, STs and newer models. I was wondering whether I would be able to purchase just the screen to work with the existing system (2013, Sync, BT+USB), or would need the new fascia (recessed OK button) and the compatible silver box to make this work. Thanks
  13. I'm putting 16" alloys on my fiesta style mk6 and im wondering what size spacers ill need? pictures can be provided if needed. Tyres are 205/45 16"

  16. Please help I have a Ford Fusion on a 2008 1.6 petrol i can turn the car on if you drive over 1700 revs it either cuts out and stalls or jumps about and then will come up gearbox transmission failure if anyone has any ideas please let me know
  17. So I've realised that Ford UK are useless and won't update my sync for me, so I've found the US version by signing up to their website with an American VIN. Long story short I have the US sync update downloaded to my PC ready to go (i hope). I am wondering if anybody else has done this and if it works or not? I have a 2014 Fiesta Zetec with Sync v03.00.09 If I find this to work and anybody wants the update for their car (I have downloaded version 4.6 using a 2014 Fiesta Titanium) then I will send you it somehow. EDIT: Added some pics of the fiesta I used for the vin. Looks like the same stereo as mine on the inside.
  18. Hi All, Does anybody know where I can download the latest SYNC update for the UK? Ford Fiesta Titanium 2015 1.5 TDCI Regards, Martin
  19. Hi Guys, While walking to my Ford focus today I noticed that my break disks look slighly rusty on each side (see pictures). Is this normal? Or is this a sign that they are getting worn? When breaking while driving the car stops in good time and I notice no squeeks or the car moving to one side.
  20. I'm thinking about buying a 2016 model Ford Fiesta titanium X, but one of the most important features to me is the keyless entry, and I'm wondering whether all titanium X models come with this feature or whether it is an optional extra? The brochure I read says that it's standard with the titanium axe, but on auto trader it doesn't seem to get mentioned in the list of features very often…
  21. So I have looked to replace the heater blower motor. However, when I've looked in the passanger footwell it doesn't look the same as photos I've seen to replace others. is this because of the model of Fiesta I have? So I'm not sure how to begin there. also is there any way to find the OEM part number without taking the car to pieces. Ford Fiesta Ztec Climate 1.2 2005
  22. Hey All, Just had my car in for a service, and its failed MOT with the things below. In your experience how much would you expect to pay for these repairs? The cost for new brake pads and disks is £216 The cost for the parking brake "fix" is £172 (apparently includes the purchase of multiple handbrake cables). Also is the shock absorber advisory anything to be worried about? (if so is it expensive to fix?) Help!! I have no idea if I'm being ripped off or not! Any advice would be highly appreciated :) Reason(s) for failure offside rear rear brake recording little or no effort (3.7.B.5a) front brake disc in such a condition that it is seriously weakened (3.5.1i) Parking brake: efficiency below requirements (3.7.B.7) Advisory notice item(s) offside rear Shock absorber has a light misting of oil (2.7.3)
  23. Hi there, My first post on here and its due to my wee fiesta. For the last few weeks in the cold weather the fan belt has made an awful screeching noise from first turning over to being up to temperature. I thought nothing of it and planned to get it fixed when I get it serviced. The other night it was good awful hence I decided to get it in to a little garage who diagnosed it as just a simple change of the belts. Happy days and I was on my way to the tune of £70. However the next morning the sound was even stronger. It definitely wasn't fixed. Hence I parked the car up at home. Decided not to take the car away with me to work. However today while heading out. The car just will not start. The little 'trustworthy' garage I used is closed. The engine will turn however it will not fire. After a few attempts I stopped as I smelt a little electrical burning smell I assume from the battery. However don't hold me to that. Anyone got some suggestions of what it could be? Could the issues just be completely separate? Any help is appreciated. - R
  24. How's it going folks, I've been a member on the FOC for a little while now, I've done more reading than I have writing, although now comes the time when I would love some advise and I found why not bring it to x amount of people that own Focus' themselves. Attached is a photo of my Mk3 Focus, just for fun, not really an up to date photo, its just cool Anyway! In a little while I am planning to Stage 3 various parts in my car, at the moment were at Stage 1 with a remap and a K&N Air Filter + Box. Its sitting at around 140bhp although I know that with power CAN come issues, has anyone been successful with making this type of Focus into a project. My question is though, has anyone upgraded their clutch? My car is 2011 with 61000 and I know its going to be clutch time soon so I want to upgrade the clutch so when I go for a new turbo, injectors etc theres a better chance of not burning the clutch in a week. @PaulMcCafferty97 on Instagram if anyone wants to follow the project:)
  25. HI ALL, RECENTLY BOUGHT A 2002 KA COLLECTION WITH 56k MILES. WHEN ITS STARTED ITS SOUNDS LIKE A GRINDING NOISE? IT DOESN'T REALLY EASE OFF AS DRIVING TOO. THE CLUTCH BITES REALLY LOW, BUT EVEN IF IT WAS THE RELEASE BEARING, SURELY THE NOISE WOULD QUIETEN OFF WHEN CLUTCH PRESSED? I AM RIGHT IN UNDERSTANDING, THESE CARS SUFFER FROM GEARBOX FAULTS? ALSO DOES ANYONE LOCALLY TO ME FANCY CHANGING THE CLUTCH FOR ME? (WITH PAYMENT OBVIOUSLY)
