#511730 Cruise Control 1.6 Tdci Fiesta

Posted by baileydog62 on 12 August 2015 - 09:35 PM

Nath posted up a white ago that due to other commitments he no longer does the cruise retrofits.

As above, you need to find someone with access to IDS to complete the install.

Cheers guys.

The blufin has settled down so the mpg has returned to normal even with a spirited hoon every so often. *like*

Busy busy! A small lottery win helped finance my next steps, purchases first.


Small 4 channel amp so I can add a sub to the system.

New number plates.

Sound proofing materials (foil backed sound deadener, 20mm felt, acoustic foam)

18mm MDF 




First job was to change the plastic speaker mounts to MDF rings and deaden the doors, one got done today between showers (no photos I'm afraid). After putting the door back together, a test between front speakers (bass turned up more than usual) showed the 'deadened' door to give tighter bass and no rattle. Can't wait to get the other side done, should take photo's this time.

That's the metal sorted, just need the plate measurements for the inlet.

#286169 Guide: Fitting Egr Blanking Plate 1.6tdci Engine

Posted by baileydog62 on 30 August 2013 - 05:30 PM

Having made a right hash of trying to fit mine (Fiesta), I look at what I was doing and if there was an easier way of achieving the same thing. The main issue was the lower bottom bolt, with limited clearance and a snowballs chance in hell to refit if it fell out, maked life very difficult for myself and my fat fingered friends.


So it occurred to me while I had the EGR pipe in my hands is that since us Fiesta peeps are blanking the left hand side of the vent pipe (picture below 9D477A), why not blank both the EGR exit and inlet entrance with a plate and remove the pipe altogether and the need for an awkward contortionist act. All it needs is someone who has an A in metal work to shape the plates and make a buck or too.


Granted there are those have had no issues fitting the plate in the normal way but my life would have so much easier this way.


Your thoughts?




I hate you EGR pipe!!



#285086 Instructions For Steering Limiter Kit Mk7 Fiesta.

Posted by baileydog62 on 26 August 2013 - 10:04 AM

This any good?


 I have fitted them to the focus and c-max so The same procedures applies though;

Ok you need to remove the wheel and then unclip the steering rack gator 
Turn the steering full lock and then clip the limiter/bush over the steering rack pinon( at the end of the teeth/grooves ) 
Re-fit the gator ( i always advise using new clips as the old ones get damaged ) 
Turn the steering full lock the other way and repeat this procedure 

#285046 Will Fitting A Egr Blanking Plate Cause A Dash Light To Come On (Mk7)

I finally did it what a absolutely horrid job it was to. So little access to the lower bolt it's unreal. If your planning on doing it to a mk7 Fiesta the you definitely need to use a ratchet spanner as otherwise you'll be like me spending ages doing a quarter turn at a time. Urgh never again.

Funny how one tool can make life so easy, I'll make the purchase today! 


I look forward to you posting the results of your travels though it does sound as its done the trick.
