Old tyres were all cracked and made by someone I've never heard of - Southern ?

 

Just been to have 4 new Avon's fitted.  :)   :)

Took a load of garden rubbish, trees and the like, to the tip. Then had to clean both inside and outside and polish.

added an ST tax disc holder and put an ST key ring on the keys, should be good for a few extra BHP right?

Took advantage of the reasonable weather and de-tangoed my 'fez', front, back and sides. Thought I would have trouble with the mirror indicators, but not a prob at all.

 

Oh, and had the front passenger footwell plastic heater exhaust pipe come away and fall into the footwell for no reason!. I hope its not the shape of things to come........do you think I can get it back on!, not a chance!!

I have just illuminated my boot popper switch with blue led, to match my headlight and electric window switches :-) bit of a pain to do but I wasn't giving up until I accomplished my mission.

Polished the fez with Auto Glym SRP - might be the last chance I get this year.
Then hoovered it for the 3rd time this week - I hate wet weather.

Also ordered a new rear wiper blade as I found out mine was useless :)

Todays been a good day - I gave my Fiesta a good hand wash and even decided to tackle the brake dust on the inside of the rims! I had a nice clean car and rims but my arms and legs were covered in brake dust.

 

I then went and filled up a whole tank with RON 95 instead of 91. It'll be interesting to see if I notice any difference at all, I'm guessing no but we'll see

Today was a good day, I took my car and had my wheels done gloss black. Thanks to the guys at the wheel specialist Edinburgh. (Side effect of this however was wandering about shopping all day).

Then, when I got home, literally as I was pulling up, the dhs driver climbed out his van with my heko wind deflectors. Unfortunately when fitting these, I noticed a tiny crack on the passenger side one, so Ive contacted the seller and should get a replacement. I have fitted them ATM anyways, and they look great but the passenger side one especially seems to interfere with the window, and it struggles to go up. I'm hoping once I've left them to bed in for a day or two, that issue will go away. The clips also do not seem to fit in the window channel, has anyone else experienced this?

I helped a mate fit some Heko on his Kia Sportage last week and the clips were a bit fiddly but will go in in the end.

Sometimes a bit of angling is required.

I used a plastic Bojo tool rather than a screwdriver to push the clips up into the rubbers as it avoids any accidental scratching of paintwork and damaged seals.

Spraying some WD40 into the window channels and leaving the windows closed for 24-48 hours works wonders.

My hekos interfered with the windows to start.. I had the missus hold the button down and I forced the window all the way up with my hand.. Left it over night and no more problems :) lol I've only got metal chips in the driver side.. I squashed the clips a little then brute forced them in.

The wind deflectors seem to be bedded in fairly nicely. I've got a newest of clips which are slightly smaller on the way, so hopefully they will fit, and make that slight extra improvement.

Today I hoovered out my car, it was about time it got done, I can't remember the last time I did. I still need to take a couple of things out, like random clothes lying about in the back, which I hate. I also ordered a set of fly eyes in black 1. Opted for the largest 45x150cm sheet, hoping it will be plenty to do my entire car? Will it be enough, or will I need to use it in a certain pattern to get the most out of it?

QUICK QUESTION / REQUEST!!!!!  TITANIUM OR ZETEC MODELS 2013 mk7.5's ONLY!!

 

Has anyone taken off either of the front door cover and taken pictures of the wiring loom at the top where it all sits, up near the tweeter location!!

 

OR

 

Would someone be able to do this for me, i just need good close up and slightly further away pictures of the loom up near where the tweeter would sit in the door card/cover.  The loom comes into the door as normal and then comes through the black under panel near the front and towards the top, it doesn't run along to much and there should be a connector plug near where the connector is for the tweeter plug.

 

Any help would be a GREAT help in solving a mystery!!
