  1. Seating position

    Can  the seating position of my fiesta mk5 51 plate be lowered, or changed. If so. How?
  2. Hi Just wondered if anyone on here has had the same problem. I have a 1999 focus estate, only problem being is the heated rear window is only half working/clearing. Now I only use the car really for fishing and taking the dog out, but as you can imagine, only being able to see half out the rear window can be a bit of a pain. Has anyone had the same problem?....and if so, how did you fix it? Many thanks. Rich
  3. Hi all, I have a 2003 1.8 TDCI Focus hatchback. I was at a scrapyard recently a found a mk1 Focus ST with near mint leather seats, so I had to have them to replace the grey cloth ones in mine. I'm pretty sure these leather seats have a heating element in them. After replacing them, the airbag light is now on in the dash. Doing some research this looks like a common problem and it's hardly surprising as the seat connector is now not hooked up. The old seats didn't have airbags in the sides, so am I right in thinking the connector is for a sensor in the seat? I didn't actually test it but the connector from the floor and the one in the new seats look different. I assumed they wouldn't fit so I didn't try at the time. What are my options here? Does the airbag light mean the SRS components in the rest of the vehicle are affected? Will I need to get an auto-electrician to wire something across the loom to trick the car into thinking everything's OK? Or can I still hook the two connectors together somehow? I'm not really sure how it all works. I will try and take some photos soon to show the connectors on the seat and from the car floor. Thanks for reading. Edit: Had a quick glance and it looks like the new seats have the square loom whilst the one coming from the car is the rectangular one. If this is correct, how does this affect what I need to do?
  4. Cracked Windscreen

    Hi folks, Yesterday I used the heated screen button on my mk3 focus to demist it. The outside temp was around 5C so not exactly freezing, after a few minutes a crack appeared in the lower left corner and within half an hour had grown to about 8 inches long. I have arranged for Autoglass to replace the screen but it's rather annoying as I only bought the car on Nov.5th. Just wondering if anyone else has had the same thing happen, though it may have been a flaw in the screen. Colin.
  5. Hello everyone! Does anyone know if there is some sort of Airbag simulator for the seat connector in the MK2 Focus? Because after I installed new bucketseats the airbag light is on. The original seats had airbags in them etc.
  6. Loose Heated Washer Jet Mk2

    Hi, I recently removed the washer jets from my mk2 Focus so that I could apply silicone grease as I heard that leaks from there were a common problem and I've already had an issue with this! However, when I tried to connect the jets back, the left one (when you look at car at from the front) felt loose in the bonnet hole and I could move it about. The right one had no problem and clicked in place when I pushed it back into the bonnet. The loose jet wouldn't click. The water hose looks as though it's connected properly to the jets and water shoots out of them fine. I have heated jets and it looks as though both the water hose and wire from the jets are clipped properly in the hooks on the bonnet. Does anyone have any tips on how to fix this?! I'm a fairly new driver and I do not know huge amounts about cars yet...! Thank you!

  8. Hi guys, i have just bought myself a ford fiesta mk4 and the seats in the car is not in the best condition. i am wondering if the mk6 fiesta seats fit into the mk4 fiesta or not ? a mitchell
  9. Hi, I'm a complete novice with cars and looking for some help. I've looked all over the internet for a guide on how to remove my old grey MK6 seats from my Fiesta LX 1.25 and found nothing. I'm slowly turning my LX into an ST replica and I recently bought some nice half leather blue ST seats. Can anyone provide some help with regards to removing my current seats and door cards and replacing them with the new ones? Thanks!
  10. Hi, since owning the Focus which has an electrically heated windscreen I have found this one of the best innovations on it, especially this time of year. I'm always amazed that even much higher spec and expensive cars from other brands don't have this and I had understood that Ford owns the patent and wouldn't share it with others. Funny that all cars have rear heated windows but not front ones, but there you go. Then last night I saw an advert on TV for Vauxhall claiming that all their new cars now have this exact feature - how did that suddenly happen? And on Vauxhall of all makes, have they bought a license from Ford or developed it themselves without infringing on Ford's IP? I guess we will see this on more than just Ford and Vauxhall in the near future.
  11. Hi I have an S-Max Zetec 2ltr Automatic, and have a problem with the front seats, in that tha padding in the raised sides collapses and you end up sitting on the frame, which is really uncomfortable. This has happened twice up to now, first time Fords took it in and replaced the padding. Second time within three months they replaced the seats, and now after nine months it has happened again. Has anyone else had this problem or is it not common? Thanks Mat
  12. Hi everyone So I've got an early mk6 Fiesta (non face-lift) Ever since the cold weather has set in I've noticed that my heated front windscreen doesn't work at all... I press the button to turn it on and nothing happens, I touch the windscreen and there's no sign of warmth at all. I'm a new driver and this is my first car, just wondered if anyone on here could give me a few helpers on to finding out whats gone wrong if its maybe a fuse or completely dead windscreen. Any help would be great!! thank you James.
  13. Hello people of the Ford Forum, I have a W reg 1.8 petrol Ford Focus Zetec. I've had it since September and I bought it in a car auction. The car is sound, it passed its MOT earlier this month albeit with a new brake cylinder on the o/s/r brake, but I cannot crumble as the car was cheap. My problem is that my alternator packed up the other day, it didn't give me any warning. The radio turned off, then the dash board lights started going. Not at any point did the battery light or any light other than the air bag warning light come on to give me notice. After calling out the AA I was told it was the alternator. So after buying a battery charger and charging the battery completely full I drove it with no heater, lights and radio to my local motor mechanic 20 miles from where I live. They have replaced the alternator but now the battery light stays on and the front windscreen heater does not work. The garage say they will sort it, but as I needed the car back I have to take it back when its convenient. I just wanted to know everybody's thoughts? Is it the alternator, a loose wire, what could it be? I'd appreciate any feed back so I can seem smart when I go back to the garage and tell them to investigate further.
  14. Focus Seats Question

    Hi all, I've got a focus mk2 facelift titanium and was looking to fit heated seats or st heated seats, my car currently has normal seats that have a manual riser. Can anyone let me know if the wiring etc is already in place? If so can you easily fit the switches?
  15. My heated windscreen on the passenger inst working, I've looked other posts on the forums but they only talk about the older models of my car, I have a Ford Focus Zetec 2008 and was wondering if anyone else had experienced this problem with this model. I understand that theirs a chance that it could be the fuse but have been told that it is very unlikely. I'd be very grateful if someone could help me out. Thanks
  16. I have a 2007 Focus CC. The heater blower, heated windscreen and and windscreen wash have all stopped working. I also have a bonnet open warning on the dash. The fuses appear OK. Is there anything that is common between all these? Any help greatly appreciated.
  17. Puzzled About Mirror

    Hi all, Earlier this year I bought a late 59 plate 1.6 Zetec. It cleared all pre-purchase checks etc. and has had no problems...except for one, which puzzles me: I noticed that when the rear heater is on the driver's door mirror demists as expected, but the passenger door mirror doesn't, so at the weekend I took a look (thinking there was maybe a problem with the heater element in the mirror) only to find that the mirror glass is plain and there's no wiring for a heated one. I assumed that both mirrors would be heated (they were on my Mk I) so hence the title of this topic. I'm wondering if, perhaps, the original mirror housing had been clobbered and replaced with a plain, non-heated motorised one, or would it have been like that from the factory? It seems a bit odd (and not a little inconvenient) to not have the passenger door mirror heated. That said, I've seen an advert for a heated passenger door mirror assembly with the interesting words Mirror Has: No Temp SensorSo perhaps mine is intentionally not heated so as not to affect a temperature sensor? I haven't got a Haynes manual for the car yet so I've not been able to check the wiring diagram (though I do have the full schematic that someone kindly posted on this site) Any suggestions/advice would be most welcome Paul
  18. Middle Row Seats

  19. Hi Guys, I need rear seats for my ford focus 2006 model. Can anyone help with good condition ones and obviously at a good price as well... Will definitely buy as my current ones are torn! :(
  20. Fiesta 6.5 Style

    My non-heated front screen needs replacing OK! Is there a upgrade kit or a way of fitting a Heated front screen? many thanks pete
  21. Hi, I have an escort 1.8d van and the seats are pretty scummy as it used to be a garage runaround, especially the drivers seat where the pad holding wire grid has collapsed and after about half an hour in hot weather smells like dead dog!! I was wondering if anyone knows if any other seats fit it, I used to work in the engine plant in Bridgend and I know how Ford likes to use the same parts on more than 1 car so I guess that Fiesta or Mondeo seats will have the same fixing arrangements but I don't want to get hold of seats which then won't fit! Has anyone else done this? I can't believe no one has tried upgrading the seats for heated or leather ones?!? Many thanks in advance.
  22. Hey, just wondering if somebody could help me out with some MK6 knowledge? My rear seat in my MK6 Fiesta has seen better days and i am wanting to replace it, iv searched for MK6 seats and cant find any in good condition for a reasonable price so am wanting to expand my search, what other seats will fit? iv been told MK5 fit but cant find concrete evidence to back this up? and also Puma's? is there any Fiesta guru's out there to confirm these and let me know if anything else will fit? Thanks in advance, Lucy x x (i'm also kinda picky and realise i will need front and rear to get them to match, but need one's that tilt as mine is 3 door)
  23. Morning all, I tried a quick search on this, but while there's a lot of threads about after market seats I didn't find what I wanted so.... As the title really. Anyone here take the heated seats option in a 2014 Titanium without also upgrading to leather seats? If you did, are they standard style seats or the sports style ones from the X? I know what answer I want, but I'll see what answers I get before revealing. Thanks
