Fiesta Mk6 1.4 Zetec - Induction Kit/oil Catch Tank Question(S)

16 November 2014 - 10:27 AM

Hi all! :D

 

I've recently (yesterday) fitted an induction kit to my Fiesta and was questioning about the oil pipe coming from the engine into the factory air box.

 

Now the induction kit I have doesn't feature any place to put said pipe so I'm a little confused in what my options are, I have been told the following:

 

- Leave it hanging (as pictured below) 

- Get a small cone filter/breather for it.

- Get a Oil Catch Tank. 

 

Now, I assume, the idea of this pipe is an 'output' of gas rather than an intake of air, which goes through your engine to get ride of any harmful fumes however, please correct me if this is not the case. 

 

I've tried searching but cannot find a decent answer from someone who really knows their stuff. I don't want to leave it hanging and something harmful happen!

Is it just the case maybe of getting a small cone filter for this? I've seen other photos of peoples induction kit (like the one below) and it simply has a cone on this.

No Number Plate Lights - Fiesta Mk6.5

18 April 2014 - 09:11 AM

Hi guys, need some help here as I've got a little problem with my number plate lights. 

 

The left one was flickering for some time so I did replace the bulb to see if it was this, to my surprise it was still flickering. So, I opted to go for two new clusters, but upgraded (all in one LED Modules) ones. When I popped the boot it worked, great, however... I did it again to get back into the boot and it no longer worked :( This also means that my dashboard lights (aka clocks, heater controls) no longer light up. 

 

Heres what I've done so far to try and resolve it: 

 

  • Changed the fuse, I changed F20 (7.5A) to a 10A fuse (Although the 7.5 didn't look blown). 
  • Attached File  img0210bv.jpg   67.5KB   34 downloads
  • Changed back to the old clusters, but to still no joy. 
  • Taken a multimeter to the cables, power is outputted when the boot is popped. 

Any other ideas? It cannot be the whole loom as the Windscreen wiper, jets and boot pop still work! 

 

Stuck for ideas, not exactly please either being as I drive at night so don't really want to get pulled and then be known to the police. Plus it's an MOT failure as far as I know which isn't great! 

 

 


Mk3 Fiesta - Sell, Scrap Or Break?

23 February 2014 - 05:57 PM

Hi all, 

 

So you may (or may not know) I replaced my mk3 Fiesta with a Mk6 Fiesta. 

 

I've been trying to sell my mk3 since October (54K Genuine, MOT till Aug - £600) now in my opinion I think that's a fair price HOWEVER, two things are 'technically' wrong with it. The first is the passenger lock which doesn't unlock from the outside, yeah, I could just replace the door but it's just effort when I did fine without it. The second is the window passenger winder which snapped. Needs a new regulator but no points of fixing it again because It didn't fuss me. 

 

Now, I want rid of it, in your opinions what would be the most beneficial when it comes to money vs time and effort. 

 

For example, 'Selling the vehicle you may get £xxx for it and will sell' or 'You could break it and get £xxx for just the engine'. 

 

Your opinions are key as I'm not sure what I want to do with it! 

 

Cheers, 

 

Mark 


Fiesta Mk6 Folding Back Seat Latch Not Working

19 January 2014 - 06:54 PM

Hey all, 

 

So I bought some Fiesta ST seats AND fitted them, to say the least I'm chuffed to pieces, however, One thing is annoying me. 

 

The back seats, the ones with the 'two seats' on which folds down, doesn't, and from what I can tell the latch is broken as it's loose. I've only notice this now after putting it all in place as I wanted to get the headrests on  :(

 

From looking at it there is a bit of plastic, which is released when you pull the latch/handle out and the red section pops up, however this is not working. 

 

Anyone got any ideas/suggestions, they'd all be appreciated!
