Mk6 Zetec S Exhaust

24 March 2014 - 07:50 PM

Hi all, quick piece of advice required please :-)
My mk6 1.25 is needing a new exhaust, I have found a second hand one for sale that has only had a couple of weeks use, but it's off a 1.6 zetec s. Does anyone know if this will bolt straight onto my car with no adverse affects? Like lambda sensor or cat damage or engine management lights etc?
Any advice will be appreciated.

Ipod Touch Disabled.

28 October 2013 - 04:53 PM

Hi all, my daughter has an iPod touch 4th generation, and forgot the passcode she set.... After several attempts to guess it correctly, she ran out of tries and the ipod disabled,now there's a red message on the home screen saying ipod disabled connect to iTunes. Unfortunately I can't connect it to the computer it was registered to as that is goosed, so was wondering if there's a way to get her ipod up and running again? Any replies and suggestions are appreciated. Cheers

Spare Wheel Fitted

13 October 2013 - 03:39 PM

Hi all, quick question regarding my mot, I have a set of standard zetec alloys on my mk6 fiesta, a have a slight buckle on one of my rear wheels, so I'm running on my full size spare wheel(steel) was just wondering if I take my car in the way it is, would it fail, even if they don't see that the alloy in my boot has a buckle(it's not that obvious a flat spot)
Thanks in advance for any replies and comments.

Oil Change

27 September 2013 - 12:25 PM

Hi all, hope someone can shed some light on my oil changing concerns....
I have a 55plate 1.25 fiesta, and usually do my own filters and oil changes. Normally I will use a good quality oil like 5w30 magnatec or something.
But this time, I thought I would go to the ford parts department and buy the one which I thought would be factory fitted and designed for my make and model.
What I ended up with is.... what looks to be a budget brand, it's called Titan SuperSin F 5w30.
Was just wondering if some of the FOC knowledgable members could tell me if this if in fact the oil ford would use when doing a standard service, is this the brand that ford recommends, I am just a bit miffed that after using decent oils for all the years I've been self servicing my cars with good quality products, ford hit me with this "cheap" unbranded slop!
Any advice and comments are greatly appreciated.

Half Leather St Seats In A Lower Spec Car

02 September 2013 - 03:46 PM

Hi all just looking for a few opinions from the knowledgable fiesta owners in the world of the FOC.
I'm thinking about upgrading my little basic seats to the half leathers from an ST (mk6) like these.... F36861F0-E920-4525-A28F-05D97395760F-943

What I'd like to know is it frowned upon if I fit ones with the ST badge just that the ones without the badges don't come along as often.
Just so we're clear, I'm in no way shape or form trying to "pretend I have an ST" I would just like to upgrade my interior, that's all.
Thanks in advance for any comments.... Good or bad, but honesty is a must :-)
