£84 for god sake, they should be bull-whipped. What a money spinner.


Especially as it failed when they serviced it. It has put me off Fords for life!

Gordon Bennet, if it IS the switch it's unfit for purpose, its barely been used.


They told me that they "suspected" the switch was faulty after charging me £84 for a "diagnostic". It was just the same as the OP's fault: sometimes worked perfectly but mostly wouldn't work at all. I got my £84 back after I traded the car in for a new one elsewhere! The Fiesta Mk7 is a fantastic car but that experience put me right off it.

Ask them to fold the rear seats and remove the parcel shelf during the test drive. That will really demonstrate how noisy it is!

Get it fixed while it is still under warranty. Mine failed after a Ford Dealer service at 4 years old and they wanted £190 to replace the switch.

In Topic: Why No Haynes Manual?

Haynes don't usually produce workshop manuals for any car until they reach a certain age and sufficiently high numbers have been sold. My best guess is that there will soon be a revision of the Mk7 manual to include the 2014 facelift version as there will undoubtably be a sufficient market for it!
