  1. 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

  3. Hi, just got my first fiesta and the colour in the seats (blue) has worn away. I'm 17 so I can afford new seats so I'm looking for some seatcovers that are a good fit.
  4. ;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!
  5. Hey guys. I'm after a little advice about my 2008 KA. I've had it just over a year and it's been fine until recently. It's began a habit of every now and again to stutter and struggle accelerating. The car can be hot or cold. I've noticed it appears to be when I'm in 1st or 2nd gear but it jerk once when in 4th. My foot can be on the floor and they'll just be nothing there for several seconds. Any advice would be much welcomed here. Thanks!
  6. Hi, was hoping someone could hep me out. I have a ford KA 56 reg that wont start, doesn't turn over, no clicking noise, nothing. Dash lights come on tried to jump start it nothing..... its not the battery what else could this be?
  7. The past month or so we have been experiencing problems with our Ford Focus 125 Ecoboost (2013) in that you are casually cruising along and then there is this very slight jolt and then a noticeable loss of power - particularly "turbo" power. An example was driving up a hill today, on a dual carriageway in the outside lane (overtaking), 6th gear, when I suddenly felt this jolt, and it seemed like the turbo just cut out and it felt like an old banger trying to get up a steep hill, where you have your foot to the floor but there is no power. I didn't do this of course but found myself pulling back in behind the car I was trying to overtake. This has happened on a number of occasions (in particular on this hill which I have to tackle every day) and we have just had the car MOT'd and serviced and for which they found no problems. Is this the turbo failing or more importantly breaking? It seems very sporadic and prior to today hadn't happened for maybe a week? Any help/advice much appreciated.
  8. Hello, This may have been asked before but I have had a look and didn't seem to get a good answer. I have a ford fiesta mk6.5 (56) it has a FORD 6000 CD radio which worked perfectly when I bought it but after going into the garage to get the clutch replaced the reception went really bad. I have cleaned the aerial screw and reconnected it with no improvement. I have taken out the radio and checked the wires in the back. I have also removed the base and put it back on. I do pick up one radio station (classic FM) it does pick up other stations but they are impossible to hear without static. No AM stations pick up. Any help would be appreciated :-)
  9. Hi, just bought this direnza cat-back exhaust system for my 2004 Ford Fiesta 1.4 Zetec and received it today. After having a look at it, I have noticed the mounting points are different to what the standard ones are. For example, on the Direnza exhaust, the mounting point closest to the tail pipe is in-line with the exhaust, however, the standard one is at a right angle. Could anyone help me out here please? On the website it says it should fit my car but I'm starting to worry that I've bought an exhaust that won't fit :/ Attached images to give you a better idea of what I mean.
  10. 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.
  11. I am looking to make my 2010 ford focus mk2 1.6 diesel sound better, currently have a remap which is the only mechanical thing done, rest is visual, any idea's? I was thinking pop corn limiter for a little extra thing? Want some help brainstorming some idea's, thank you :)
  12. Here are a few pictures of the mods I've carried out to my focus thus far. 1.) All new front bumper grilles & painted fog surrounds. 2.) Foot well lighting that lights up when you open the doors. 3.) Removed air box completely, fitted induction filter. Fitted oil catch can, and replaced breather hose from engine to air box with blue hose to oil can, and then back into the intake.
  13. 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
  14. Hi everyone I bought this 2.0 litre tdci 57 plate mondeo about 4 days ago it's the 140bhp zetec, lovely car I bought it because my 2.0 litre petrol ghia blew up haha .. anyway it seems a little strange when I start up the new mondeo it makes a whistling/high-pitched humming sound possibly the starter motor but I'm unsure if this is normal?? I'm going to attempt to attach a video of it starting up to see if you know what I'm going on about.. thanks in advance ok I can't upload the video any advice on where to upload video for people to listen??
  15. As you can see in the image, i have 2 spaces free for buttons and i want idea's of what i can put there to fill them in ? Instead of it just been an empty grey square
  16. Hello people, I'm new to this. So I'm unsure if I am posting in the right area. I have recently purchased a Ford Mondeo 2010 MK4 model and was wanting to use the aux that is in the glove box, but unfortunately the previous owner has broken his jack off in the port. I tried using a magnetic screwdriver to try pull it out but that did not work and I have tried many youtube video ideas, but all ultimately have failed. So what I was wanting to ask, because I cannot seem to find the answer anywhere online is how do I take the glove box out to examine the extent of the damage to the aux port/do I even need to remove the glove box. Can anybody please help!!!???
  17. I recently purchased my new fiesta st-2 and was just wondering if it was possible to upgrade my infotainment system from the standard dab bluetooth system to the better system found in the galaxy that my dad has? I'm not looking for an aftermarket system as I would prefer it to be dealt with by Ford themselves, can anyone shine some light on whether or not I can?
  18. Hey, hope this is the right section. I'm currently wanting to do some simple mods to my ford fiesta mk6.5 (56 reg) 1.25 style. I was wondering if anyone has a guide for changing the light color behind the Speedo. I have read elsewhere that it's pretty simple to do but I am a little confused since they are old posts and images have expired. Thanks in advance :-)
  19. Looking for advice on what modifications I can do to improve my MK6 Fiesta. It's a TDCI Zetec S, it's on a standard turbo & injectors, EGR Delete has been done, wind deflectors, bonnet vents, Coilovers. Looking for a debadged grill if anyone has one for sale, and also looking for a bonnet lip and splitter any advice on how to improve performance and looks 💪🏻 TIA
  20. Hi guys, I have a 2.0tdci Focus 06 144k miles. I live quite rural and regularly drive 100 miles per day (60 of which is motorway/country lanes). A few weeks back on the motorway I lost all accelaration power. The engine still idled but would not accelerate. I pulled over, restarted the car and all was fine. Approx 1000 miles later engine management light came on with p2453 and p2454 (apparently meaning the same thing?) and went into limp mode and has got progressively worse. Anyway I assumed this was somehow the dpf, so I cleared codes and took it to 4k revs for 15 minutes. I've done this approx 5 times. 3 of the 5 times I've had a white puff of smoke but this doesn't cure the codes or limp mode. It would appear I have to accelerate it up to 4k revs for a few minutes before it decides to drive normally. It will at some point inevitably go into limp mode again though. Any ideas what this is? I've tried to follow the pipes on the sensor located next to the battery and couldn't seem to find a hole. Could it be the sensor itself? Or something else?
  21. 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.

  23. Hi, My gear knob and gaiter are both worn in my Ford Focus 2009 MK II Hatchback 1.8 TDCi and I am wanting to change them. I have been looking online and the one I like seems to not fit my car, or so the compatibility checker says. I currently have http://www.fordpartsuk.com/shop/ford_focus_gear_lever_knob_and_gaiter_2008-2011_f_1548262.htm part number 1548262 however I would like to have something like http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Black-5-Speed-Gear-Shift-Knob-Stick-Lever-Gaiter-Boot-Cover-For-Ford-Focus-/152054140712?fits=Car+Make%3AFord|Model%3AFocus&epid=1594595900&hash=item2367220f28:g:0KQAAOSwLmVXD3y4 (I know it's an aftermarket one so I'm not too sure). The compatibility checker says that it would not fit in my car. Does anyone know any different or have any recommendations for me? I think a gear shifter like that would look a lot nicer as it matched with the centre console too. Any help would be great.
  24. Hello everyone, since buying a Ford in January and posting in the new members topic(Also January) i have not done a single thing on the forum since then, however i'm here today to show you what I've done with my car and what i hope to achieve next. Quick Side note: 1) I'm young and insurance skyrockets with modifications of the performance type, so yes i will be doing exhausts/remaps/air filters etc etc, but not until next year on my second NCB. :) 2)All of this was done by myself, everything. I'm fairly proud however constructive criticism is advised! 3)Any future modifications you want to suggest i'm absolutely all ears on it. Ok, so firstly my engine bay, now as said in the quick side notes unfortunately i can't go around buying cold air intakes and primary and secondary induction hoses which sucks, however i have made the most of it buy doing a little bit of personal styling. Primary induction hose and Air box have all been sprayed Red, and then once it was dry it was coated with lacquer for a bit of extra protection. I wanted to take out the Secondary hose and paint that but i couldnt seem to be able to take off the breather pipe? i tried looking online and on here and for the life of me i just couldn't find it, so i left it how it was.(Besides those two circular clips that attach it to the "Engine" sorry my car savvy is about 2/10, were awfully hard to put back on when they went off. Right, so Secondly i decided to give my interior a new breath of life aswell, The side trim where the door handle is, the main center console, and the plastic bit that covers your ford sync screen thing were all taken off and recoloured. I did this by using a lacquer remover type solution (Not used on the ford sync casing) to, well remover the lacquer and then i re-colored and re-lacquered for a protective finish. The i guess "Upper" center console(Radio controls volume control etc etc) was going to be taken out and re-coloured but i didnt realise the trim and the actual hardware were all as one bit? i'm sure there is a way to separate them but looking back on it i like how it is. Next i did the gear knob, it wasn't necessary but the plastic bit on top of the Ford gear knob came loose and was only being held on my one little plastic clip, so i decided to change that because why not? Well, Finally exterior mods, and i don't have much to say about this but all i've really done is install wind deflectors. I am planning on replacing the OEM aerial because it's just so unnecessarily big and looks out of place, i am also looking to have new badges to match the red, and i want to install a different rear bumper ( Will be done when i can modify the car to replace the exhaust system and maybe a triple-r composite splitter for the front. I will also be looking at re-colouring my brake pads or just waiting and buying some Red Brembo ones but i don't know yet, the one thing that is stumping me, is if i do decide to just re-colour the pads, do i also do the rear drumbrakes? or just get diskbrakes for the rear and have them red, don't really know. Anyway that's everything, some of the things i'm planning to do at the moment wont be done for some time but i'll get around to them and anything else i do ill be updating the post when i can as well. :) Thanks for taking the time to read it. Also please excuse the mess of photos i typed all of this and then decided to do the photos afterwards, its all in chronological order so its pretty easy to see what i've done. Also Alsom these bottom pictures are just a few "During process" ones, and finished product pictures (No chronological order).
  25. So, my first post on the forums (please go easy on me)! 😂 Anyway, here goes… I have a Ford Fiesta Mk7 (58 Reg - 2009) which came with the numerical dial-pad stereo and Bluetooth only from factory, and wanted to upgrade to have both USB and Bluetooth streaming enabled. After reading some threads here and a bit of research, I decided to take the plunge and purchased a Novero 8M5T-19C112-AT module off of eBay, replacing the Novero 6M2T-19G488-AG module, along with the appropriate fascia for the AUX and USB ports and routing the USB cable from the module to it. I then got on to a local garage who happily programmed via Ford IDS, the parameters (that others have mentioned several times): 'USB Accessory Unit' > 'With USB Unit and iPod function' and 'Bluetooth Handsfree' > 'BT/VC Phone Interface + USB connect'. I also remember some kind of BVC setting that was either 'Low' or 'High' (or something involving those words). Attempted update via USB to update module/stereo which showed as being successful on the stereo display. Unfortunately, here are the symptoms: USB power does work. When plugging a USB stick in, it can see the MP3 files but will not play back (reverting back to AUX). Pressing the AUX button multiple times does nothing. iPod and USB options do now appear, but only accessible when respective device is connected; However, no Bluetooth option visible. 'External Device' voice commands result in 'Not Possible' response. Connecting devices via Bluetooth and attempting to stream audio does not play sound through the car stereo, although devices appear to play like 'normal'. Pulling stereo and module fuses to force power reset does not work. Disconnecting USB and module loom cable to force reset does not work. Don't know if anyone remembers coming across this issue, but I've tried to see if anyone else had similar issues on the web forums, but no real luck, apart from one quite similar, if not the same situation, that involved making sure both relevant parameters were programmed via Ford IDS. Therefore: Could the incorrect BVC parameter of either 'Low (non-branded)' or 'High (non-branded)' affect the functions? Possibility of malfunctioning module? Is it normal for iPod and USB options not to do anything unless connected? Might just be the display, but it does kind of look like the iPod and USB options are hashed out? Does the actual stereo/relevant equipment need updating via Ford IDS or is updating via standard USB connection adequate enough? Apologies for such a detailed post, but hope it's good enough for anyone to fully understand the situation. Would be good to get it working! Let me know what you guys think. Much appreciated! P.S. Oh, and also anyone with Ford IDS who can help in the Leeds/West Yorkshire region?
