In Topic: Fiesta Titanium 1.4 Petrol Advice/running Costs

14 December 2011 - 01:59 PM

Might sound mad but the 1.6 petrol fiesta is surprisingly frugal ours hasnt dropped below 40mpg since we got it on a run returns 50mpg +.
1.4 petrol strugles to match it on economy we had a test drive and found it lacking a bit of poke and refinement.
1.4 and 1.6 diesel ive had not experience of but generally diesels dont like short journeys.

factor in what sort of journeys youl be doing and go for the 1.6 petrol or derv accordingly.

Magenta !Removed!

In Topic: Rear Bushes

Pain in the !Removed! job but doable.

jack up rear of car put axle stands on chassis.
Support rear beam on a trolley jack.
Remove the big bolts that run through each bush.
Lower rear beam.
This will expose the remains of your bushes.
drill burn hammer scream swear do what ever you can to get the rubber out of the shell so that you can get a hack saw blade through.
Now carefully cut the steel shell.
Resume swearing and hitting with hammer to remove shell.
Grease up axle and pop some polly bushes in.
put it all back together again.

Cup of tea and a slice of cake and bandage the remains of your hands :)
