  1. Fiesta Mirror Swap

    Can some one help please. Daughter had her drivers 59 plate fiesta electric (non power fold) mirror totalled. Got second hand replacement but its for powerfold. Wiring plug different. Whats the best way to fit?
  2. Hello. Recently, backing out of a parking spot, I caught my passenger side door mirror on a pillar and wrenched it rather severely. Nothing broke, but the casing snapped out of place and the mirror assembly was pulled a little ways out of its socket. Re-assembling the mirror case was no trouble at all, and everything, from the indicator light to the orientation motors, works perfectly, but the mirror isn't properly fitted to the door. The piece of plastic that connects the mirror case to the door panel doesn't lie flat on the door; rather, it's pretty loose. I found the nut that holds the mirror in place, and managed to undo it (it appears that the bold that holds the mirror wasn't bent), but, when tried to fit the mirror back into place, I found a metal prong next to the fixing bolt that doesn't seem to have anywhere to go, and prevents the mirror from fitting into place properly. How can I fit my mirror back into its place?
  3. Okay so on my travels through the world wide inter-web thingy I have stumbled across some cheap parts for what could be an interesting retrofit project. Basically the components to create puddle lights in the wing mirrors as follows: The cost works out at £25. I can imagine it requires the mirror unit to be removed to cut out the hole, then running some wires to the control unit. I have noticed before that there is a square marked out on the underside of the unit for the puddle light unit so would just be following the lines. Any feedback welcome, not sure if I will go along with this, but as money is tight and I really want to have a go at some sort of car based cheapish project. if those words can be used in the same sentence :P
  4. Guys / gals, I am trying to fix my friend's 64 plate fiesta (face lifted version) as she has broken the wing mirror on the driver's side. It's a 1.2 petrol (not ST or anything fancy like that). But....I'm having trouble finding out if a wing mirror for a 2008-2013 fiesta will fit, or do I need to get one specifically for a 2014 model? I am getting conflicting reports whether they will be compatible or not...who can settle this mystery once and for all?
  5. Removing A Mk2 Front Wing

    Hi all, I've recently stripped back the sills on my car, treated the metal & resprayed (so far good) however on doing this it became obvious that the bottom section of the front RHS wing is 80% rust i.e. the part which the mud flap bolts through & is beyond being saved. I know replacement (pre-sprayed) wings can be purchased which my cause a minor colour mis-match due to UV fade etc, my question is does anyone have any idea how to remove the front wing? The Haines manual doesn't detail this process, I'm confident working on the car & am able to remove the arch liner. The only Youtube vids I could find for this are MK1's which may not have bolts etc in the same place etc.
  6. Wing Mirrors Wont Fold

    Hi I have just bought a 2008 Fiesta tdci from what I have read although it has electric adjustable mirrors the presence of a dot on the adjuster indicates that the mirrors do not fold automatically. My question is should the mirrors fold in manually as mine seem to be fixed thank you

  8. Hello I am trying to fit a clip on screen to my 2007 S-Max's rear view mirror. (Reversing camera) I have just bought one but unfortunately the sliding clips on the rear do not open wide enough for to accommodate the width of the mirror. It opens to 3" but needs to be 3.5". Any sugestions would be appreciated. I'm new to Ford ownership and the Ford owners club which I find most useful.
  9. Hi, Recently purchased some electric mirrors from a 2006 Fiesta ST that I planned to place on my 2003 Fiesta Zetec. I currently have manual mirrors. I have purchased wiring loom for the conversion. Any recommend instructions?? Thanks!! :)

  11. Hi, I was just wondering does anyone have an idea where I could source a door and a front wing on the drivers side for a Ford Transit 1987-89 Thanks
  12. You can find below the steps needed to replace the mirror indicator bulbs/ remove the housing on a mk7 Fiesta. The process is pretty simple, takes about 10 mins and only needs one person and a screwdriver. I was removing the cover to replace the bulbs with chrome ones but the same process applies for pretty much any work you want to do on the mirrors. The reason I have written this guide is that whilst the process is simple it does require you to apply a fair bit of pressure to plastic parts which is always a worry if you don't know exactly what you're doing. From my experience the job doesn't endanger your mirror glass as you pretty much leave that alone and you're most at risk of snapping one of the plastic clips on the housing. On the up side though they all seem surprisingly sturdy so as long as you're careful you will be fine. Step 1 Step 2 Step 3
  13. HI Everyone! I have a 2008 Focus Zetec auto, and i am looking to retro fit the auto headlights and maybe auto wipers to it. I know i need to see if i have the correct wiring, however i was wondering if there was anyone they could help me establish this?! Also i will need to change the config for the car, i used to have a vauxhall astra and could do it on there however it's a little different with a ford. Not sure i would like to mod the ELM reader myself, or pay ford £70! I'm guessing that i would need: Auto headlamp switch Auto Wiper stalk Sensor and new mirror? My mum has a 62plate zetec when you open the doors and it is dark it automatically puts the side lights on (also when you unlock it) when you close a door they go off and then when you open on the come on, is this possible also? Not in any rush to get this done however would be cool if i could do it. TIA! Jonathan
  14. Wing Mirror Advice/help

    Hi All, Just brought a fiesta the other day (first ford) so this is my first post. Fiesta Zetec 1.25 (Climate) 57 Plate. The car has so far gave me no problems at all, other than a dodgy lighter and a blown fuse. The problem: The wing mirrors no longer adjust. They have done previously on two occasions but now nothing happens. The mirrors also automatically fold in , and that still works fine. What does this sound like? anybody had the same problem? any advice or things to check would be massively appreciated. (On another note the passenger wing mirror when folding in begins to make a clicking sound which sounds like the motor is trying to turn the gear/folding mechanism further in than it needs to , only lasts about 2 seconds, ive done a little research and most people say leave it alone and it shouldnt get worse?) Thanks in advance :) Brandon
  15. Broken Wing Mirror Glass Guide ?

    Hi, I have a fiesta style 1.25, which has a broken passenger side, wing mirror glass. I have order the replacement part online but I am unsure on how to replace it. Has anyone got a guide or tips on how to do this ? Thanks
  16. Hi folks, I'm (slowly) doing a rebuild of the front end of my 55 plate TDCi, and currently working on the nearside wing and internal housings. (I'm not a mechanic, so it's slow going... ) Can anyone tell me what this is? Do I actually need it? Is it just trim? I've got the old one, which is smashed to bits, but struggling to know what to search for when looking for a new/salvaged one (the part code in the above doesn't seem to help). Thanks in advance.
  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. Heated Door Mirror

    Hi, Just curious about the "heated door mirrors", how and when do these work??? Now its getting a bit frosty out in the mornings these days I am wondering how these work, are they automatically operated or do they heat up slightly when I put the heating on for the windscreen and rear screen??? Many thanks James
  19. New to the club! Recently got a fiesta zetec 5dr mk7 & it has powerfold door mirrors. I want to put wind deflectors on all doors but I'm worried the mirrors will catch/rub/flex the deflectors when they fold in. Anybody got a 5dr with deflectors & pwrfld mirrors? If so how does it cope? Thanks.

  21. Hey guys, I have bought a couple of orange LED bulbs for my side mirror indicators, did a detango for my front and back indicators so thought it would look good. Anyone have any experience getting the glass off, or changing the bulbs? Tried to just look around, pulling a bit, but cant really figure out if you need to change it from behind the mirror? Any advice much appreciated! :)
  22. Hi, I am a new car owner and am accustomed to dipping mirrors when reversing. Usually I have done this electronically in the cars of instructors. I can't see an obvious way to do it in the my recently acquired Ford Fiesta Ghia, but have discovered I can do it manually. Can someone tell me if there is a switch or if I'm meant to be doing it manually? Sorry for posting such a banal question...
  23. I have a 2007 ford fiesta zetec and currently have problems with my automatic wing mirrors At first the problem only occurred with the passenger side but now seems to be both . The problem I have is when you lock the car or use the manual stick inside the vehicle to draw in the wing mirrors the motor seems to over run once the mirrors have been drawn in causing them to attempted to be drawn in further making a clicking effect Any assistance would be greatly appreciated Cheers
  24. Wing Mirror Woes

    Hi all, I have had my NS wing mirror clipped. I found it with the coloured cover off and "folded" in. It opens and closes fine, can be adjusted fine BUT the mirror now sits slightly proud of the housing. I unclipped the mirror glass and found small pieces of broken plastic inside but no obvious damage. Anyone got any experience of this or any suggestions? Gut feeling is either put up with it (as it's still fully functional; not the wife's preference) or replace the mirror (fecking expensive). I see a lot of Mk4 mirrors that would do on ebay (example) for the Mk4 but these say up to 2011. Do these mirrors definitely not work with the 2012 model? If not, why not? Cheers, Gary
  25. Hello, My right had side (drivers) folding mirror works fine and folds when requested or when unlocked door. The left one does not move at all. The mirror itself can be adjusted using the electric mirror button, but the wing mirror itself does not automatically fold. It doesn't make a noise, or attempt to move. Haven't changed fuse as not sure which one it is, cant find fuse layout guide. Attached picture of fuse panel. Unless you think it's something else? You'll all be better than me. I have NO idea. Thanks in advance.
