  1. Does a car of this year and model show mobile phone signal strength on the left hand screen? Cant seem to find it and my Wife's horrible orange display does! Driving me mad!
  2. ;Dear fellow Fiesta owners,I have been driving a Ford Fiesta Mark VI which I purchased in 2010.I have been facing trouble to start the engine lately. After turning the key to start the engine, there is no kick in the engine whatsoever. This is a video of the many attempts at starting the engine: However, after the 5th attempt or so, I would hear this clicking and grinding noise (Noise begins at 0:05 mark and ends at 0:19 in video below) which continues even after I remove the key from the ignition.After the noises stop and when I attempt to start the engine again, the engine would be able to start as usual. But the 'check engine' light would remain lighted (have a listen at the noise before I was able to start the engine up). After being able to start the engine once, I am able to start it again. However the problem would come back again after a drive and when I park it and try to start it again. It is unlikely that this problem is cause by a weak battery since I recently changed the battery to a new one about 3 months ago.This problem would come and go but it has been going on everyday for the past week. Not sure what seems to be causing it.As of to date, I have only encountered one other problem which is with the gearbox computer. Swapped it out and it has been working well.Has any of you faced this problem before? Do let me know!Thanks!
  3. Any help in helping me tight reverse in a focus? (parallel parking) I often get my rear view up their windshield and think JEEZE I must be close but there is infact like a metre gap left! I really cant tell how close I am to the car behind so any tips would be fantastic! :) I used to have a Kia Picanto, and I could tell exactly how close I was to the car in behind because its a narrow thin car with is rear wheels right at the back, all i had to do was see how close the wheels were, and every other car was wider so I could see that as well as judging the rear wheels. But I cant see to do this on the focus, the rear end is quite prominent, not to mention its a very wide car! I've hit 2 cars in the past while tight reversing using this car, I've been avoiding tight parallel parking just because of this problem. If I could get any tips with this wide/big butt car, be fantastic as the road I live on is parallel parking only and struggle for parking space. Need reference points help in side mirrors and references looking back.
  4. My 10yr old ford ka has recently had a mot and since the mot it has been having start up problems almost like it has a flat battery. This only happens after a car drive and when I only stop for around 15/30mins the car is unable to start but does start an hour later. The speedometer flickers very quickly for about 10 seconds and the engine makes a noise but doesn't start. Also during longer journeys after about an hour I notice some dashboard lights turn on such as the abs and air bag lights. The car radio also switches itself of which indicates low battery, however, these problems only happen during a car journey not when it's first being started in the morning. The first time I noticed the dashboard lights on the speedometer strangely went from 60 to 0 back to 60 numerous times then stayed to 0 yet this has not happened since. When the car doesn't start the trip count also resets itself. Another problem (don't know if it is connected) is that during a long journey the car revs uncontrollably almost like someone is pressing on the rev peddle quickly on and off for about 2 minutes. This especially happens when waiting in traffic. Does anyone have any suggestions on what the problem could be as the garage say they can't see anything wrong with it. Many thanks!
  5. Hi everyone This is my little Courier van, I chose this as it is the perfect size for my business requirements, originally looking at Caddy vans, all the ones I looked at were damaged and just not in a clean condition. I saw this advertised at my local Evans Halshaw (Hull) and went for a viewing and test drive, it's the 'Trend' model with the 1.6L engine which I hear is rarer than the 1.5, no idea if that's true. Absolutely delighted with the van, drives just like a car 👍👍 Modifications so far: • 18" Team Dynamics 'Imola' alloys • lowered 45mm • Tinted windows (Light) • Tinted side and rear indicators • 'Team Heko' wind reflectors • Upgraded LED daytime running lights • Fiesta ST interior foot pedals • Black gel overlays on Ford badges • Chrome door latch covers =============== Tons of things yet to be done, including full colour coding which is up next, along with fitting a front lower spoiler from an ST once the bumper has been painted. Here is the van at the dealers: Once home the first thing I did was tint the side and rear clear lenses along with upper brake light: I then fitted chrome door latch covers which I think is a nice touch: The windows were tinted, wind deflectors etc were fitted then I recently added the alloys and a good friend dropped the suspension for me. I spent hours and hours researching what suspension would fit perfect, there really isn't a lot on the net about these vans so I've had to put some hours in to find out the info. Here is the van as it currently stands today, I've blanked out the rear sign writing as I'm sure this would be in the rules of the forum? Hope you all like the progress so far, colour coding up next.
  6. Just looking for opinions on what colour wheels would look good on this car? Or should I stick with these?
  7. Hi guys, fairly new here so bare with me bought myself a 1.0 ecoboost mk3 focus a few weeks back and to say I'm fairy pleased with it considering what I had before. I'm however looking to go down the modifying route, I understand that it's a 1.0 so won't get much out of it however I would love to see feel more power which ive heard you can do. I would like advice on what the best modifications are and if any one are selling these items 2nd hand
  8. Want to do something with the back just to make it stand out a bit more from stock. I'd love to get the ST diffuser but I'm looking for cheap things to do. Was thinking about taking off the ecoboost badge and putting a red edition badge there instead with a 'ZS' badge under the fiesta one. I've had a look around but can't find any though. Thoughts on what I can do?
  9. Hi guys looking to get twin pipes and an st diffuser for my focus mk2 pre face lift 1.6TDCI. I'm going more for looks than anything else but I'm just wondering what I would do to make the car sound Nice, not looking for a huge BOOO or to be seriously loud just want it to be Nice, any recommendations? High flow air filters or what? Have no clue about exhaust modification or would an air filter even make it sound decent
  10. 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.
  11. Tires

    My car tire has been leaking the front passenger side for a while now, and I've taken it to a garage and they have resealed it 3 times. Been fine each time for around a month at a time. It's happened again, really frustrating. It leaks from where the rim meets the tire on the back of the wheel ( the side facing the under of the car) just wondering if anyone else has had this problem and I need a new tyre or if there is a fix or just general advice. I bought them from an alloy shop around 1 year ago. the tyres are good quality Yokohama slines. thanks.
  12. galaxy 2009 body kits

    Hi everyone. I just bought myself a galaxy 2009 last week and im looking to make it my own. Always loved the s-max titanium and im just wondering how hard it would be to get the titanium body kit to fit the galaxy.Mainly the front bumper and front wheel arch vents.has anyone actually pimped up a galaxy to make it look like it drives:??
  13. Curtain Airbag recall

    Hi all, my first post, Ive had my Ford Edge Sport 5 months and love the car. Last week i got a letter from ford that my car has to have the curtain airbags replaced, now having worked in a body shop i knew this prob wont be straight forward as the roof lining and all side trims etc have to be removed. Now the car went into fords today for the work and it was immaculate when it went in and now i have black marks all over the roof lining, sun visors, side trims, broken clips on the side trims and cross threaded screws, I'm so disappointed as it doesn't even look like they have cleaned the car after. I detail cars for a living which makes it worse as I'm so particular about everything. Has anyone else had this recall on there edge. Allan
  14. Boot lighting

    I am considering putting another light (similar location on the left side of my boot (inside) and was just wondering if anyone else has done this. My plan is to remove the left piece of trim which holds the parcel shelf up and make a hole at the exact same position as on the right trim. I think maybe run a splice into the earth and power of the right light to supply what's needed for the left light. Basically wondering since I switched the bulb to led (lower power) will I need to upgrade the fuse or add a relay? If anyone does have a better method please post below, I'm bored and just need things to do :-) My car is a mk6.5 (56 reg) 1.25 petrol fiesta STyle.
  15. Rear washer hose issue

    Hi guys, Looking for a bit of guidance, I fitted an ST/Zetec spoiler to my pre-facelift mk 7 last year, since then, the washer hose has never pointed at the window, it basically just sprays the floor (very practical indeed) I haven't got a clue on how to get it to point at the window as it will only go one way as it's at a 90-degree angle. If someone could point me in the right direction that would be amazing. If you need any pics let me know and I will upload some.
  16. 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
  17. De-tangoing

    I have a mk6.5 (56) fiesta and I bought some osram py21w bulbs to change out my old front indicator. They are a 581 but the fitting is (12 o'clock/7o'clock) and I needed (12o'clock/6o'clock). I'm going to buy some p21w 382 bulbs and just want to be sure I'm not doing something stupid replacing 581 with 382. Note: I have removed the plastic cover (tango) already and can't put it back. I forgot to try the bulb first (I know idiot).
  18. I was hoping someone could help me with this query please. I have a 2016 Fiesta Red Edition, today my other half opened the door and the wind caught it and it stuck off a barbed wire fence. The barbs cut into the outer door pillar trim and has left a nasty scratch in it. Just to be joyous it got the paint also lower down the door! So I need it fixed. The question I have is that a part? (I found part No. 147366 Ford Fiesta MK6 3 Door LH Outer Front Door Moulding - which looks similar.) However is it wrapped on the Red Edition or is that how the part is? I stopped at a Ford Garage and all new Fiestas seem to have this same matt finish, but to me it looks wrapped? And seems to have joins and seams with other parts of the door? Also given the fact that red is shining throughounderneath the scrape it made me think it was wrapped? If so can you buy the wrap? I have put a couple of pictures up and really appreciate any help at all
  19. Is there a way to switch preset banks on DAB using the controls on the steering wheel? Seems a rather large oversight if not possible? What round town MPG should I be expecting? What motorway MPG should I be expecting? What combined MPG should I be expecting? How many miles per tank should I be expecting. Its the 125PS 1.0 ST Line? What size in litres is the tank? Will sport ( automatic) mode guzzle juice? Are the gear change paddles just a gimmick or should I use them more often? Thanks in advance!
  20. Hello everyone! I bought a after market spoiler from eBay (I know), it bolt/screws in and was just curious if anyone else has installed one of these. I'm just worried I may hit a wire when drilling into the boot lid. The item http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/371945377026 I have a 3dr mk6.5 so it seems it will fit. Any help is greatly appreciated.
  21. Bluetooth retrofit fiesta mk 7

    I've done a bit of searching around but havent really found anything. I've been using a Bluetooth aux device thing for some time now but it's just a pain to use. Does anyone know if it's possible to retrofit or upgrade my current system so it has Bluetooth in? I have a ford fiesta mk 7 - Edge trim - pre facelift If someone could give me some guidance on this it would be greatly appreciated.
  22. Air box Upgrade

    Hello, I am looking for some information regarding upgrading the lower half of my air box to the ST250 or RS lower air box with the duel (Top & Bottom) air entrances (Picture 1) I have a 2014 Focus 1.0 Zetec S with the single (Top) air entrance (Picture 2) Is this a straight swap? Thanks
  23. Hello All, I am having a large issue with my Ford Focus 2013 1.6 TDCI. A Few months ago I was driving when i suddenly got the dreaded engine management light and a constant message of ENGINE MALFUNCTION SERVICE NOW. It continued to drive fine but then dropped into limp mode. I took it took my independant garage who done a regen and it fixed the issue. Month later the issue came up again. This time i took it to an official ford company who diagnosed 3 Faults. one with the grill system which i have no idea what they mean, they mentioned taking it apart which could be costly to find the broken part. they then mentioned that might not even fix it and that there is a glowplug in the DPF which may be causing the problem then of course the usual DPF clogged up with SOOT mainly because of the other issues. obviously to get all this fixed and the labour is going to cost me alot. Is there anyone who can help with my understanding of the issue and if it is possible for an independant garage to fix. Thanks Jamie
