  1. O.K, so the Aluminium part of your foot pedal just fell off? Mine did a month and a half ago. I temporarily glued it back in place whilst ordering a genuine new one. Thinking this would be an easy swap I set about it. A few hours (and a lot of frustration later I managed the task). I couldn't find anything helpful online so I thought I'd write a quick guide of how I managed this. The pedal in question was the Clutch pedal, but I presume it'll be the same fro the Brake pedal too. Insure you have a lamp, a small mirror and a flat stubby screwdriver to assist you doing this correctly. Place the new pedal cover into a bowl of boiling water for around 10 minutes. Dry off the pedal cover and head to the car to begin fitting. (#1) Install the bottom of the pedal cover first (as it's the smaller area). (#2) Insert the upper left corner next (this is the awkward corner as you are inhibited by the pedal support arm) (#3) Then run your screwdriver up the side to ensure the rubber between #1 & #2 is correctly fitted. (#4) Fit the top right corner next. (#5) Run your screwdriver across the top to ensure the rubber between #2 & #4 is correctly fitted. (#6) Finally pull down on the right side tab to assist you using your screwdriver to ensure this rubber is correctly in place. This sounds fairly simple to do, but in practice it can be a bit of a dog to successfully get all of the rubbers on in place. You will need to apply pressure to the pedal cover against the pedal itself to get parts to stay on whilst moving on to the next step. Obviously if the pedal cover slips off then you should start again and drop it back into boiling water. I've attached a few images for assistance. I hope this guide helps at least one person out, please leave a comment below if so. Thanks in advance.
  2. Hello all, It is my first post here so I'll just point out that I own Ford Fusion 1.4 petrol from 2006. Mileage about 80k. Had some smaller and bigger problems with it but in general I think it is a good car. But recently this "famous yellow exclamation mark in circle" showed up on my dashboard cutting of the power and so on. After checking error codes there was only the one in topics name: P2135 Throttle/Pedal Position Sensor/Switch A / B voltage Correlation So if I understand correclty it is something with throttle itself or with throttle pedal and its positions do not match. I am not experiencing any problems with throttle movement like gap in RPM or changing RPM on idle. So I am guessing the throttle pedal has to be changed. Anyone had same problem? Maybe any idea? Thx for help!
  3. Squeaky clutch pedal

    Hi all. Not a problem but very annoying! Got a squeak from my clutch pedal, every time I push it down and when it comes back up. Sounds more like a spring rather than a mouse squeak. Does anyone one if it's just a case of looking under the pedal and greasing it or do I have to take anything apart? Thanks!
  4. Hi all, I'm looking to pick up a OEM sports pedal kit for my fiesta, but really want a dead pedal too. I can get the OEM pedal kit without the dead pedal for the fiesta, but all the aftermarket dead pedals just dont look 'original' enough for me. I've found the focus pedal kit on FordParts (http://www.fordpartsuk.com/shop/ford_focus_aluminium_pedal_pad_kit_rhd_f_1534426_c_342.htm), but I have no idea if these will fit the fiesta or not! Any insight into if they'll fit? Alternatively any link to the OEM dead pedal only (or a very similar model) would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
  5. Hi, I'm looking to basically update a old Ford fiesta i purchased back in August. The clutch is really the main problem . Now it has done 69,000 miles and has been well looked after and obviously the clutch has been extremely worn over the years. The biting point is quite high but not to extreme, and I've never really dealt with the old Mk6 clutch before. All I want is to try and troubleshoot the problem here with you guys, this is an amazing website and i'll be really appreciative of some help.
  6. Hello I am having probkems with my focus 2003 1.8 diesel. I was driving and all of a sudden the brake pedal dropped to the floor. I had a quick check around and no visible signs of a leak. Discs all round so no wheel cylinders to leak. Front pads were in a bad way so i changed them. The pedal is solid when pumped with the engine off but when started the pedal just falls to the floor. I have been trying to find the issue for a few days now through checking the braking system and various forums as i have swapped the master cylinder and servo. I have also swapped the abs pump and rebled the system twice. I am unsure if the abs pump needs a special tool to bleed. I am now running out of ideas.
  7. So, here's the story in a nutshell. I have my 1L (125) Zetec S for a good couple of months now, which was purchased new end of last year. In the past weeks/month I started to hear a creaking noise when depressing the clutch / gas pedal when the car is in gear, any only when it's in gear (most audible when in lower gears). This mainly happens when the car is cold and after about half an hour or an hour, the noise fades away. During that time the noise can be lower or higher, and if you listen to radio you can barely hear it, but since I know what I need to look for I can kind of hear it whatever and whenever. Been to Ford twice, once they sprayed some WD40 at it, but it didn't make a difference, the other time they didn't do a single thing, just kept me waiting for 1.5 hour (dash cam is my friend), will put a complaint letter together soon to that lovely branch. Obviously, I've searched the whole internet and it seems some other people had this issue, but couldn't find a straight answer what could the issue be. Here's the issue in motion picture format, turn the speakers up: https://vimeo.com/152181707 Anyone got any idea, what could this be? Much appreciated, as always.

  9. Throttle Cutting Out

    Hey everyone, I have a FORD FOCUS 58 Plate 2.0 TDCI Titanium. For years I had an intermittent problem- the throttle pedal would briefly stop working. This began happening once every 3-6 months so wasn't too much of an issue. It now happens everyday. Been researching this problem for a while. Despite following many similar topics on just this forum nothing has solved it yet. I do lots of motorway driving (approx 200 miles everyday). On each journey the throttle pedal stops responding and the revs drop to idle. Occasionally the pedal becomes responsive again, other times I'll have to pull over to stop/start the engine. This tends to reset it. Occasionally I can sense when it will happen as the car judders when easing off the throttle pedal and is slow when pressure applied. I don't appear to have any DTC Fault codes, and a Ford Dealer found nothing after a diagnostic. I've replaced the pedal with another (second hand) and it still cuts out. I ordered a replacement (second hand) Throttle Position Sensor but another pedal showed up instead. I was told on this year/model the TPS is now in the pedal. It has now got to the stage where I'm just wasting money on guessing the fault. Suggestions have included replacing injectors, instrument cluster, ECU, fuel filter, but no-one has actually diagnosed the fault. Any help/suggestions will be much appreciated!
  10. Focus Ghia Cruise Control Problem

  11. Hello, I'm after some advice... Last Sunday I was driving along and when I changed gear my clutch pedal suddenly clicked and its not been the same since... It was quite loud at first but then gradually got quieter. It was something I could feel as well as hear. Now it's not really audible but the feeling of the pedal is horrible. It's got the clicky jolt when I depress the clutch and its not as firm as it was before. I managed to get my head down there and look to see what was happening and there is a rod that comes from the master cylinder? that goes onto the back of the pedal assembly which is slipping every time I depress the pedal. Should there be some kind of clip that holds this rod in place on the back of the pedal or has something bent that would keep the rod in the right place. Any assistance is muchly appreciated! :) Thanks
  12. Hi so I have this problem that most garages seem to not actually have heard of. The clutch goes hard when not being used. If I drive around town for a while where I am constantly changing gear, i.e using the clutch, it works great. If i spend half hour or an hour on the motorway in one gear, i.e not using it, the clutch pedal goes stiff when i finally do. It's not impossible to depress but harder than it should be, as soon as I depress it a few times to change gear, it recovers. I was preparing to put a new clutch in towards the end of the year anyway as the pedal seems high but i need an opinion on the fault. Also it intermittently doesn't go into 1st gear! Only intermittently though, i have to retry and usually 2nd or 3rd time it slides into gear as it should. Same thing happens in reverse gear (which is the 1st gear but backwards i believe). It's a 2003 1.6 Zetec petrol and these are the only niggles on an otherwise fantastic car, like a Bentley compared to my old Corsa! Thanks in advance. One love
  13. Fiesta Clutch Pedal Issue

    Hey guys just wanted to share this with you all. I have a Ford fiesta 2005 MK VI and recently my clutch pedal started to click, sometimes it would be fine and other times pedal went straight to floor. So I had it recovered to my local garage, and was told it is a common problem and was told to buy a clip from Ford, cost less than 50p. The garage fitted it for free as i'm a regular but guess what it didn't last 5 days, the clip failed. Again recovered to garage when they checked this time the shaft or connecting rod for the master cylinder had slightly worn hence the clip had come off, honestly this clip looked like it was made from tin foil it was that thin, you could shave with it that's how thin it was. I was then told that a hefty bill was expected as master cylinder and pedal assembly would have to be changed, I left to sulk and see if I can source parts myself thus reducing the bill, amazingly I found a seller on Ebay selling a clip, more like a locking ring that fits on the end of the shaft where the pedal attaches and bingo!!! it has only sorted the problem out for good, so far been on my car for around 5 weeks and still everything ok, im using the same clutch master cylinder and pedal and it cost less than £20 and best of all I fitted it myself in under 10 mins although it was a pain to get to. Just thought id share this with you folks I will send link here if it will allow me. I tried pasting link guess it wont allow me, but if you type on the search bar in ebay "ford fiesta pedal clip" it will pop up you get an allen key and washer and the ring. I hope this helps you guys.
