After joining the fiesta club last weekend...

...its time to mod the car

 

1st of all, im thinking window tinting - standard 20% on read 3 (or 5 including the 2 baby ones)

will do it myself as I did my Grande Punto and it'll save me £100.

 

Other mods I'm thinking is:

- possible upgrade ICE system

- LEDs in footwells and doors

- New exhaust

- Air filter change to K&N

...there's loads of engine room... tinker time mwahahah

I want to tint the rear windows on our Focus..... gonna look into that, once I sort the whirring noise out. Then look at the sound system.

It's a Petrol 1.4 Lenny!

Son of Nod, the key is TAKING YOUR TIME

Spray gun which you can pinch from an empty kitchen cleaner product and some liquid.

The trick is to make sure you clean clean and clean before, all about preparation.

The back sides aern't too hard, it's the rear that might be a pickle.

 

Tints will be ordered next week hopefully, so I'll ping some pictures on here to update you all on my progress.

Have an annoying buzzing/rattling sound from Passenger side front...

 

Any idea what it maybe? I'm thinking potentially a droplink or something??!

 

Can hear it when over 30mph ish.

As I have said before, the tint makes a huge difference, car just looks more upmarket than without, and in my case it helps with the sun as well, good luck with the mods.

Replacing Cigarette lighter fuse

 

 

Hi guys, had the Aux cable plugged into the Fiesta and it briefly touched the cigarette lighter area and spark flew out and no power comes out the cig lighter

 

Anyone recommend the fuse to use and which fuse to replace along with where to find the fuse as well?!!!

O damn! thats bad luck, but good that you tell us, my iphone cable is always wrapped up in that same bin. is the fuse layout not printed on a sticker in the fuse box, or maybe check the handbook.
