Mine came of last week on the motorway, FordPartsUK gave me the same "only sold as a whole" garbage


It's not garbage - they're telling the truth! I can show you Fords part system which shows part number is only for skirt kit.

Have something to contribute?

Nathan, I'm not sure he means "garbage" as in "lies", I think he means "garbage" as in its rubbish.


I spoke to a mate at Ford that confirmed this. Tis definitely rubbish.

Now that's garbage allright ... :D Ford does sell the 2 removable pieces for where the jack goes under the car ... not only the whole skirt kit.

But Ford keeps refusing to sell the end-caps, according to them, for SECURITY reasons ... as if one needs to be an engineer to screw those things on the wheelarch ...

This will probaily be a big thing now if you can't just buy the plasic bit just to go on the end of the skirt you will be getting people going round nicking them and next thing ebay will be flooded with them. Ford is a rip of like

!? Security? Like they don't trust people to fit em? Why would they sell alternators, springs, various sensors and fuses etc etc etc.

Mental

Fine you got me there - the end cap only comes with the skirt excluding the 2 caps and the fixing part!

Both of my mates were robbed, at the end of the day if ford are been c**ts about it then everyone will just have to rob each others. Without one can cause some bad damage as they collect water and hang off

I wasn't denying that they weren't telling the truth, merely displaying my disappointment for Ford wanting me to pay for a new Skirt to repplace a cheap plastic cap which shouldn't be falling of in the first place

No still not able to get caps on there own from Ford.

Is it really worth £100+ and replacing the whole skirts just for the sake of the end caps?

I know its fustrating, I'm missing one too. :(

I remember the old 1997 BMW 318 used to have caps in the skirts and the guys used to remove them and fill the holes with isopon then smooth and spray,

is the same possible with the fiesta or do you need to remove the cap to fit the wheel jack or anything?

How about self service after closing time at your local non helpful ford dealer.
