It's all in the wrist ;)


#470461 Fiesta Mk6 Aircon Dont Work

A dye test with Nitrogen is the best and only option tbh.
Listening for random hisses is the proverbial needle in a haystack.

#470401 Genuine Dilemma, I Don't Know What To Do

Posted by Stoney871 on Yesterday, 05:15 PM

Ok I'll get my husband to try that later on, and I'll chat to security to make sure I'm right under / in perfect view of their cameras

By lurkers does that mean what I think you mean? :o

I don't mean to scare you as it's very unlikely, but just asking you to be fully aware and take precautions.




#470399 Genuine Dilemma, I Don't Know What To Do

I believe the fuse you need to pull is F5 in the passenger footwell fusebox, should be a blue 15a mini fuse.

if you have your Owners Manual it would be best to confirm this.

Look for the one listed as 'Diagnostic connector'.




#470109 Best Screenwash ?

Posted by Stoney871 on 26 March 2015 - 07:44 PM

I use Bluecol 3 in 1 winter Screenwash, smells of alcohol but cuts through road grime well.

Do not use Tesco Eco Screenwash, it leaves terrible residue on paintwork.




#470061 Clarkson In Trouble Again - RIP Top Gear

Posted by Stoney871 on 26 March 2015 - 05:34 PM

It gets me how everyone says he was sacked.
His contract was up for renewal and they decided not to do so.
Doing it that way means no severance penalties or pay off.

Unfortunately no.

It's an un-adjustable stream or nowt I'm afraid.

#469237 Lost My Keys

Posted by Stoney871 on 24 March 2015 - 07:17 PM

I got my mark 3 second hand a few weeks ago. Only came with one key. I did bring out up with the sales guy but he assured me it only came with one. Should I be concerned lol


Lying git.
All cars come with at least 2 keys.
Demand he proves his statement or gets you another key sorted.


#468982 Need White Fog Lights, Not Hid

Posted by Stoney871 on 24 March 2015 - 01:42 AM

Have you thought of Cree bulbs?
Not very bright but a much closer match to HID.


#468922 Excessive Battery Drain

Posted by Stoney871 on 23 March 2015 - 09:33 PM

It also has 2 12v sockers which are handy for inflatable camp beds and running tyre pumps/car vacs without trailing wires all through the car.
The LED light is not uber bright but is useful in emergencies.


#468918 Excessive Battery Drain

Posted by Stoney871 on 23 March 2015 - 09:31 PM

Smart charge is supposed to ensure correct power distribution to car functions while maintaining the battery, TBH all it seems to do is make us buy more expensive Silver Calcium batteries.
When I got my booster it was charged for 24 hours prior to going in the boot, you're supposed to top it up after every use and at least every 2-3 months.
I've used it 5 times on my car and others and it's still going strong.
