Rattle and Creak free, dashboard creaked a bit in the early days on the passenger side but stopped all of a sudden ??

I guess whatever was rattling fell off then... :lol: :lol:

In Topic: Moving Address

You need to get it sorted. The penalty for not changing your address is a fine of up to £1000.

Sod's law says that the time you are most likely to get pulled and need produce your licence is while it's incorrect!!

If you cannot find your licence or the paper part, you will need to apply for a replacement licence too. I think you can do this at the same time as changing your address but it's probably worth a phone call to DVLA to check.

Try asking another dealer in your area.

Many warranty claims are down to whether the dealer can be bothered to process it and/or argue the case with FMC.

In Topic: Fiesta Mk 7 MPG

Did a 750 miles round trip of the country last week for work (Hertford-Bristol-Bridgend-Birmingham-Telford-Bury-Keighley-Doncaster-Melton Mowbray-Soham-Hertford) and averaged 68.4mpg which I was very happy with!

I filled up in Bridgend and reset the computer and then drove to the edge of Birmingham via M4/M5 with no traffic and averaged 72.3mpg on that stretch which was about 100 miles. Unfortunately, the next morning I had to go into central Birmingham in the rush hour and that brought it back down to reality.....

Still, very happy overall!

In Topic: Ford's Servicing Strikes Again...

My car's going in for a service tomorrow and I'm expecting them to point out the tread on my tyres. I'm down to just over 3mm on the rear and just under 3mm on the front. The wear on the tyres is even front and rear. I have my own tread measuring gauge and check them all monthly.

I'm seeing wear of about 0.5mm every month at the front and 0.5mm every 2 months at the rear so know I have a couple of months wear left in the tyres yet. I normally replace at 2mm.

I checked them last weekend so it will be interesting to see what they say....
