Zetec S Ecoboost 1.0

Tried to fit led 501 bulb for the interior front courtesy light to no avail, however the original now doesn't work but the two map reading ones either side do, does anyone know if these are a separate fuse?

Did you take it out and rotate 180? LEDs only work one way round.

Hi Nath, tried the led bulb both ways round, and in the back to no avail, it works fine in the map reading lights, I've looked in the handbook and it mentions that the front and rear interior courtesy lights are w6w thou, that's what led me to think I'd blown a fuse, also tried the original bulb from the back in the front and still got nothing...

Any thoughts?

On Friday I finally picked up my new fiesta and I must say I am very impressed. It's so refined for a small car and the 3 pot engine is brilliant. Worth the wait.

Darn. Oh well, only paid £30 for it. Sure I can flog it to someone for more :P

On a side note - are the washers mist or jets?

Jets Dave. Replaced mine with painted mist type. Had some heated ones off my Focus but noticed the Fez are not heated.

Get the loom off a Focus and you can heat them if you splice into the heated screen stuff. Done it on mine and removed this morning in prep for the new car :P

Hmm i like the idea of that, sounds a simple enough mod, might give that one a bash, were the jets of a mk2 or mk3 focus?

Any issues fitting?

Don't do it Dave, waste of time mate. My Focus ones were naff and never defrosted :(

Mk3 jets on a Mk2 Focus ST.

Then the Fez

I've had them on mine since about 2 weeks after new, they work alright (and only alright as you need to have the car running a minute or two before setting off for any effect). I used jets of an Mk3 Focus, and got the loom off a Mk2 I think, all the same bits really. Easy enough to do if you know what you're doing.

Does anybody know what means "sport suspenssion" in Fiesta Zetec S brochure? This is mentioned only for Zetec S. Is it more stiffer or lowered ? Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!

Silver looks quite bland on the facelift, seen a few Zetec cars and just seems very plain. Ordered mine in white, the Zetec's and Titanium's I've seen look good.

Its funny I still find that the facelift looks good from some angles and not others.

It is also a bit disappointing about the slight cut and shut look you get from a facelift, I can't help but see the back end of the old shape (cus that is what it is). The new design is really nice (at least from some angles) but I think the car could have looked even better had it been a front to back facelift.

Still the MK7.5 Ecoboost 125 only lost out by a margin to the Focus I traded my MK7 in for, I look at all these pictures and still now think, did I make the right decision, lol.
