Creak From Footwell

20 October 2014 - 07:17 PM

I discovered yesterday when driving with the radio off for the first time in ages that my car seems to have developed a creak from the footwell somewhere.  I can't pinpoint it yet and was just hoping someone else has had something similar and figured it out to save me the hassle!


It's most noticable when pulling away (even in a straight line so I'm ruling steering out) and when touching/releasing the gas.  I don't think it can be the pedal though as when I'm parked with the engine off I can't make the noise happen at all no matter what I poke or press lol.  It doesn't seem to happen when going over bumps or when braking, so it does seem to be related to the gas pedal.


Any ideas?

Unused Filament In Rear Lights?

30 September 2014 - 05:52 PM

My dad picked up his new focus zetec s today, and since testing all the lights work properly there seems to be a filament in the fog light bulb on each side that isn't used.  Am I right in thinking that these are normally the tail lights, but as the car has led ones they aren't used?  Just to be clear the ones I'm talking about are the bulbs in the lower red section beneath the indicator and reverse ones.  Cheers!

Ford Protect Premium Plan

30 August 2014 - 10:15 PM

I've been looking at the ford protect premium plan on ford's website, and the prices for 2 and 3 year cover (servicing and breakdown) for the fiesta are only £330 and £550 respectively.  This is includes brake fluid at 2 years and is much cheaper than the fixed price servicing from my local dealer (come 3 years it's over £200 cheaper!).  I haven't had a recent quote for a plan from the dealer but when I bought the car I was offered a £600 3 year plan.


I'm sure a few years back these ford plans cost a lot more than dealer servicing so what's changed?  I'm very tempted by this now but I can't help wondering if there's a catch or something to it.  I thought maybe the services wouldn't cover as much but seeing as they all cover the same items this can't be the case.


Anyone got one of these plans or any experience of them?

Couple Of Sync Media Questions

03 August 2014 - 07:09 PM

1. With the voice commands what's the difference between 'track' and 'song'?  When you say either it always confirms the instruction with 'play track ...' so I'm guessing they're the same, but it seems odd that both are listed.  I wondered if track meant the filename rather than song title but it doesn't seem to be!


2. When a file is playing from usb and you press info and then down to go to the second page of details, what is the last item in that list with a symbol that looks like 3 bullet points with lines next to them?  Mine always shows 'N/A'.  All I can think is it's meant to be the playlist, but it still doesn't show anything when playing a song from a playlist.


If anyone can shed any light on this it would be good!
