In Topic: Wheel Bolts

Today, 08:55 AM

I just spoke to the service manager, just to say I wasn't overly happy, I mentioned my late father used to run a Ford dealership about 3 miles away, he asked his name (obviously same as mine, went quiet and told me he would do all he could to make me a happy customer? 

Nothing further, so will find out tomorrow I suppose.


so if he didnt know who your father was then they would have charged you?


cheeky buggers - if they have broke it then they should be fully liable to pay for the damage and distress caused.


you sound like a very polite man but when stuff like this happens you need to let that anger loose and tell them off otherwise it will happen again and again. do not let anybody take you for a ride. cruel world i'm afraid.

In Topic: Ford Focus Mk2 Wiper And Horn Issues

03 July 2015 - 08:38 AM

at first i thought it could be a squib issue when the horn goes off randomly - ive had this on a previous car so know how embarassing it is! 


i had to take the steering wheel off and make sure the connection tab (for the horn to operate) wasnt touching the squib as this was the issue on mine. somehow it had managed to bend out of shape and this made it closer to the squib and made the horn go off.


with regards to the wipers - i dont know but im guessing an earth fault or even the stalk being faulty.


if you are tackling this yourself then make sure you have disconnected the battery so the airbag does not go off.

In Topic: Run Out Of Gas And Steering Wheel Locks Up?

03 July 2015 - 08:30 AM

she appears to have got confused between steering wheel heavy and steering wheel locked. cars have 'power steering' and require power i.e. the engine running for it to work, so if her car ran out of gas then the steering would have got heavy and if do not know what it is to drive a car who's power steering has failed then it can feel like its locked and you need some force to turn the wheel unless you are the Hulk but then you wouldnt drive a car!


also, if the car has a no key in ignition facility to run and then it runs out of fuel would the steering lock up as it does on older cars ?  i.e. if you turn the steering wheel without the key in the ignition it locks!

In Topic: Hi Guys Don't Know What This Is If Its Bullying Or Something Else

looks like the manager ballsed up and needed someone to blame and rant at which sadly was you. if your not happy about being spoken to like that then speak to your HR department as it is classed as bullying/harassment.
