Damaged Alloy After Tyre Fitting (Advice)

07 September 2011 - 05:21 PM

OK so took my ZS for new front tyres, now I know its easy to look back and say but I wish i had made the fitter check me wheels before hand incase this happened to prove it but I know myself my alloys were 100% unmarked before today.

Below are 3 images, image 2 and 3 are of the same damage. Tyre 1 is one alloy tyre 2 and 3 images are of the other alloy.

I have no experience of changing tyres so any advice? I guess if I go back to complain they will just say you cant prove it was us and I will hit a brick wall?

Is damage like this quite common especially with soft alloys?

Thanks for any advice / info

tyre 2

tyre 3

Usb Port Problems

28 February 2011 - 03:00 PM

Hi all,

Will phone Ford later regarding this but just wondering whether anyone else has had any problems with their USB port?

Mine has become very inconsistent on reading USB sticks (ones that have always worked fine in the car), sometimes not at all even if I take it out/turn radio off/restart car etc, does read the odd one sometimes but not acceptable really.

Hope they do any looking at/work under warranty, or am I being too hopeful? It cant be wear and tear!

Firmware upgrade perhaps?

Right long story but I am not best pleased.

Firstly I am aware it was my fault for not moving the bin but anyway, to cut a long story short our idiot neighbours who have to put their wheeliebins infront of house for collection put their bins within an inch of my car leaving barely any room to manouver when I came to go to work at 5am and I reversed into one of the bins, at very slow speed but damage was done :angry: :(

Poor photos but see below.

What is the best course of action? Its only a small patch thank god, I have an electric polisher (or whatever they're called!) so any tips of if i should use this / what products to use (t-cut?!) and should i buy a panther black touch up paint?

Sorry to sound like a n00b but its all new to me!
