  1. Hi everyone. I wondered if anyone would know where I can get some replacement door seals from for a 2004/05 Streetka passenger side please? I have a leak in my passenger side car door. I have figured out my seals are in two parts and are held together by a plastic pin and was pulled off one day by a garage man after the door was bashed in a crash. My poor car has not been the same since (it has been about two years now). I have tried my hardest to get replacement seals but I have been told by Ford that they stopped making them a long time ago and it seems breakers yards never get any. My seals have been held together for the last two years with a patch from a bycle puncher repair kit which has worked, unfortunately the rubber has perished and this is no longer an option. I can try and get ome more secondhand ones of ebay and hope the pin is not damaged and if so continue with the puncture repair kit method. I would prefer a more permenant solution though and I can't afford a new car at the minute. Would anyone have any ideas please? Thank you x
  2. Hi, Looking for some advice on which replacement water pump I need. The car is a 2003 StreetKa, registered in March of that year. The engine is a 1.6 Duratec (Zetec Rocam). It needs a new water pump. Two part numbers are listed and I'm unsure which I need. First part no 1229571 lists a water pump and gasket, and second part no 1798955 lists a water pump kit with no gasket ... sold separately. Has anyone fitted one? Do I need the additional part shown in the pump kit? Or can I buy the pump and gasket? Cheers, Ed

    Hello I thought I'd join this ford forum as I've had my streetka a while and planning on keeping it until it's unrepairable lol I attend many meets and have been in the car scene for many years even before driving. I love cars and have had a few since driving including Clio sport, punto sporting and a fezza... I have my own plate which has also followed me in the car scene and been on all my cars... I will attach a couple of pictures below...
  5. Hi, I have joined a I have bought a 2004 Streetka. Hi to all other Streetka owners
  6. Hi, I've bought a 2004 streetka for my daughter and separately bought a Hard top but neither the car or the hard top came with the rear mounting brackets and wiring harness. I've tried a number of car breakers sites to try and locate but without success. Does anyone have or know where I can buy the hardware from to mount the hard top? Many thanks in advance. Alan
  7. Hi All, Need some help! My StreetKA is squeaking (definitely the fan belt). I've been looking around to find the best price fan belt. I have found a couple of belts at reasonable prices but for some reason they state that they fit StreetKA's between 12/2002 - 12/2005. Firstly, I wasn't aware they were made in 2002. Secondly mine is a 2006 model. Can't find any for 2006 models. Is there a difference between a 2005 model engine and 2006 model? I know some StreetKA's didn't have air con, but the belts state suitable for StreetKA's 1.6 12/2002-12/2005 with Air Con and P/Steering. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance! :)

  9. Hi all, it has been an age since I last posted mostly due to a massive move from London to Cornwall. It was stressful but things are now settling down and, as suspected, my health is improving daily. So funnily enough is that of my car, nicknamed Noddi by my company's security team (and it has stuck LOL). The mysterious rattle which Ford couldn't find turned out to be the aftermarket 'manicat' that had been fitted hitting the sub-frame as the new/old design is a fraction longer in the flexipipe - sorted by my new local garage and no big drama. The ABS light not going out meant removing the ECU and sending it away. Unfortunately the fault was caused by a burnt out wire, which in turn wipe the ECU clean. It was tested, the wire replace and the ECU reprogrammed. A big cost at £250 but better than paying for a completely new ECU. Everything working fine. Engine Management Light intermittently coming on, was caused by the coils being corroded. Probably caused when the heater matrix let go and sprayed the lot with water/coolant. New coils and leads fitted and all great. I am amazed that a local garage and my brother-in-law were able to sort out these problems when a main Ford garage couldn't. I am so glad I went through the pain to find the issues as Noddi is running brilliantly and with a new strut-brace fitted is handling like a dream. I am in love again with my StreetKa. One careful-ish owner namely me. However, now I wish to give her a bit of a tart up and one thing I would like to do is change my front badge. Any ideas before I go and bother my poor belighted brother-in-law again? It looks like the entire front of the car has to be removed and I'm pretty sure that can't be right. Just for a badge? Madness if correct. So in any event, I am hoping you are all well and had a happy Xmas, New Year and Easter. With love Sian-Marie AKA Tiggi (the cat)
  10. Another Handle Issue!!

    Hi Guys, I've had my new Street KA about a month now, and since owning it I have replaced the steering wheel, wheels, radio and rear window (cracked). Today my drivers side outside handle just all of a sudden stopped working. After working the door card off I have seen the plastic clip on the back of the handle has snapped off. I've ordered a nice new handle of eBay for it, I just want to know that once I fit the handle should that fix the issue or could there be something else in the mechanism broken? I only ask because when the problem first started I swear the clip wasn't broken originally, or it may just be me. Thanks for any help! Emma :)

  13. Looking to update the back brakes of the Ka following putting Fiesta ST brakes on the front. The car has ABS as it's a Streetka. Fancy a disc conversion using Fiesta ST parts: - Hub - Discs - Callipers and carriers - Back plate - Brake lines (was thinking HEL as they do custom ones) My questions are: - will the Fiesta ABS harness connect easily with the Ka's? - with it having ABS do I need to bother with a valve to reduce the rear pressure or does the ABS compensate? - which handbrake cable do I need to use? Any advice would be appreciated.

  15. Hi, I have to admit that I am a complete newbie on cars ( I´ve never changed a wheel ) Now I have to do it and Ive found the hydaulic jack , the tool required and I thing I can do it..... but the real problem its I cannot remove the spare wheel from bottom of car... dont know how to do it. I attach 2 photos where there is the spare wheel, and other in the trunk with a screw that I dont know if its needed to liberate the wheel. Also.. I have been spinning that screw , but it seems to dont do anything... I can spin it with fingers also but allways its at the same hardness . so also its possible Its defective. Many thanks to all for help my and sorry cause my english is not very good. Happy new year ;)

  17. Service Light Is On

    Hi I have an 04 street ka which i bought a few months back, the only problem is, is that the service light is on. How do you get it switched off and how much is it. Many thanks Dan
  18. Just noticed after switching engine off that the starter motor sounds like its spinning but not engaged,
  19. Hi everyone, my name is Abi I am 21 and a very proud owner of a 2004 pink streetka :) I have had my ka for just over a year and started having a few problems. I have been finding it hard to get parts for streetka's so I thought this forum could help me out (fingers crossed). Appart from that I would just like to say I love my ford and wouldn't give it up for any other car!
  20. Hi, Be grateful for any advice please re my streetka and on/off problems starting engine. It has been troublesome for a few weeks, sometimes starts ok but doesn't sound right and other times it goes to start and the revs just drop and engine dies and have to leave it for awhile until able to start again. No lights have come on and i took it to garage last week for them to take a look. Nothing showed up but spark plugs needed changing and leads, they also replaced fuel filter. It's been ok since until today and tried to start - engine sounded weak and just kept cutting out so left it. Any ideas what it could be? Many thanks
  21. Hello everyone, I own a streetka and I'm facing two problems. The first one is that very rarely the roof button does not work. It may stop for some hours, but the next day it works flawlessly. The next problem is that I recently found heavy moisture, water basically, under both carpets in the cabin. I faced that problem last year, but I visited a garage where they supposedly fixed something regarding the A/C. Now again though. I located water coming from both sides at the central console where the feet are. Any ideas? Thanks for your help, Panos
  22. First of all, hello, all! I bought a 2004 streetKA yesterday at a bargain price. I was made aware that the central locking only worked with the key in the door. I took the car anyway and decided to get as far as I could before seeking advice...So, here goes! 1 - The key fob communicates with the car. 2 - Pressing the lock button causes the passenger side to lock, then unlock; drivers door remains silent; no lights flash. 3 - the key in the drivers door locks both doors. 4 - the key in passenger door locks the passenger door, then unlocks again. 5 - if I press the lock button on the key fob, whilst simultaneously, manually locking the drivers door causes the lights to flash, as the manual says, to show that the central locking has worked. 6 - if I disconnect the drives door like/trunk wiring and then press lock on the key fob, the lights flash and the passenger door locks. 7 - at no point has the alarm seemed to arm. It has not sounded or given me any indication that it's on. That's as detailed as I have been with diagnostics. Here are my queries: Would this have an affect on the alarm system not arming or am I looking at separate issues? (I've changed fuse 33, still nothing) How do I get the locking motor out of the door and where is it? I'm no electrician but with your guys' help, I might be able to solve the alarm problem! Thanks in advance! Perry
  23. Hi, I live near Worthing West Sussex and was wondering if anyone knows where I can get a new back window/screen for my Streetka. I folded the hood and the screen has split in two places and is damaged beyond repair. Ford charge an arm and a leg so will probably have to fork out in the end but was just wondering if anyone knows anywhere that I could get one cheaper. I have been quoted £100.00 to fit it when I get it. Here's hoping :)
  24. hello, I have a 2005 Street ka. Over the weekend my rear window has been damaged, force was used resulting in the top of the window being pushed in. However not only has the plastic come away but also the stitching attaching the whole top part of the window has been broken away... please tell me there is a way to get this repaired other than an expensive new roof!!! Thank you x
  25. Leaky Soft Top

    Hi i have had my streetka since new (2004) and has been fairly trouble free until now. I recently had my car roof treated but yesterday noticed that waterdroplets had formed on the inside of the roof. Does anyone know if this means the treatment didnt work or if its time to buy a new roof?
