I suspect its in fact the exhaust gas.

Try sniffing exhaust ASAP after the smell appears. The cat can make gas smell very chemically / even like rotten eggs at times.

If it is exhaust gas then its perfectly normal.

I had the same problem with my old 2009 Fiesta and it was the pipe catching in the bonnet near the hinge which stopped the water flow.

Check to see if water flows with bonnet open - if it does then check the route of the pipe near the windscreen with bonnet open - could be the same problem.

I have the full leather sport seats option in my Titanium and can say that they are very good quality indeed.

Well worth the extra 800 notes :-)

When the sun is low the auto lights do come on on the mk 7.5s - I believe it is programmed this way as mine does the same.


By comparison my previous mk 7 2009 Titanium did not do this.


On the whole my current 2013 auto lights work better than the previous 2009 version.

I have always thought that it was the receiver for the Infered central locking, If it's not, then where are those receivers ?.


As above it is the sun load sensor for A/C


The remotes are radio, not I/R.
