In Topic: Fiestal Mk6 Rust

27 October 2010 - 07:25 PM

Had a quick look at other halfs 2003 Fiesta the other day. Underneath the spare wheel well, there is a large patch of rust coming through. Where the towing eye is attached. The rest of the car is clean however.

Is this a common rust spot? Anyone else found rot here on their cars?

When you say "Underneath the spare wheel well" is this metal part of the part wheel tray or actually part of the metal of the body? The w4nk3rs did'nt bother to underseal under the boot of the car at all (above the spare wheel tray) on mine (MK4) dunno if this is similar on a MK6 - which is radically different to a MK4. As they say in Germany 'Ford, deigned with rust in mind'

I have a Titanium - therefore have an auto dimming rear-view mirror, and privacy glass.
I find it most annoying - if someone comes up behind with their normal lights on (not on main beam), it dims completely so I cannot see anything, and have to use the side mirrors to see behind.
Is it possible to adjust the sensitivity - I thought it is supposed to only work when you got a "dazzler" (on main beam).

Alternatively, I will soon be sticking something over the sensor....
(only noticed it this week as it is the first time I have been out in the dark! nearly 1000 miles on the clock now)

Im intrigued by this dimming mirror thing, how does it work? Does it move the mirror to compensate for bright lights or something?

My geeky side likes that flash drive but only 1 gig? If they did it in white I'd probably still get one though! Posted Image

It's 1 GB, but you could probably fettle in a more substantial gigabytage drive
