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,

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! 

 


Fiesta St Seats In A 5Dr Fiesta Mk6

12 January 2014 - 10:13 PM

Hi all, 

 

So,  I was looking and seriously thinking could I fit the Fiesta ST (Mk6 style, believe it's the ST 1?) seats into my 2008 MK6 Fiesta. Looking at the back seats they'll fit straight in, however will the front seats be the same? Doesn't matter what I search I cannot find an answer. I found one forum in total which someone has asked the question and everyone said yes but I wanted to double-check with everyone here as I'd prefer an answer from today not 4 years ago :)

 

I want to be able to just slot the old ones out and put the ST ones in. 

 

These are the seats in question, I can see that someones put them in a Transit so I think it'll be fine but yeah!: 

 

Any ideas/know hows are appreciated. Thinking about picking them up this weekend.

My New Fiesta's Build Log

09 October 2013 - 09:36 PM

Hi! 

 

Welcome to my build thread about my new Fiesta which has replaced my old Mk3 Fiesta (Scarlett)

 

I'm planning on putting all my mods here so I don't have to make like a million threads!  :blink:

 

So anyways, on with the show! 

 

Heres the Fiesta when I picked her up :)

Now after buying this It made me poor and really need to look after the pennies, so I decided to start by mapping out what I want to mod and what priority based on cost etc. For example, K&N Filter is going to be cheaper than the Fiesta ST seats that I want etc etc. 

 

anyways, for £3 I picked up an LED light, when I got it I found that actually the light I got with my Fiesta wasn't the correct one, so being my Mum has the 06 Ghia I swapped the lights out (With her permission, ofc  :P ) and put the Blue LED in there. 

 

This is how it looks currently:

Now the only problem is the reading lights are white still, whether I change them I'm not sure but if I do want to change them I'm not sure what bulbs they are!  :wacko:

 

So yeah, this is what I've done so far, hope you like it. 

 

My Upcoming Mods are:

Badge Gel Overlays (White Background, Blue 'Ford' writing)

Fiesta ST Gearknob

Fiesta ST Seats 

Fiesta ST Pedals 

K&N Filter

Air vents wrapped

Ice Blue Sidelights

 

Any comments/Feedback let me know but I'm going to keep this thread updated and Picture heavy so watch out! 

 

Still trying to think of a name for her however! 

 

New Fiesta To Replace My Mk3

01 October 2013 - 08:20 PM

Hi guys! 

 

I've not posted for a very long time because I've been busy with work and family commitments so really haven't had time to do anything to my mk3 fiesta. 

 

Anyways I've recently purchased a personalised number plate (Yep, they're like marmite, some love em, some hate them) and I couldn't put it on my current Fiesta because it's too old. Now the plan was to (For my 19th In February) get a new car to put it on but I visited the old garage when I used to work and fell in love with a Blue Mk6 1.4L Zetec Fiesta. Now the Picture below is like the car but isn't the one I'm getting (If that makes sense, it is the same but not the same number plate)

Anyway, the car is in mint condition and it's had two owners from new (a nan and a grandson) so I'll be the third owner. It's done 38K so still low millage and it's all standard. 
 
All in all perfect! 
 
So I'm picking it up on Thursday and it's time to say by to Scarlett, my Mk3 fiesta. Now I've always been very sentimental with my property and she's given me a good year and a bit use but now it's time to move on to bigger better things. 
 
With the car I am getting: 
1. Personalised number plates printed (usually £13 each)
2. Two new tyres (Didn't really need them but they've been put on anyway)
3. Full Service (On it's 7th now, FSH) 
4. MOT if needed (If less than 6 months remaining) 
5. 3 Months Warranty 
 
Pictures will be put up when I pick her up but for the mean time I wanted to show a few small plans for her, I don't want to do anything massive to it because I have like no money after SO the first things for the Zetec - 
 
1) Fiesta ST Gearknob 
2) Gel Overlays for the logos. 
3) Personalised number plates to be registered and put on. 
 
And of course the FOC sticker! 

 

Was thinking MAYBE an HID kit? Whats your views on these? I know the powerful ones annoy me when going along but I know you can get three or four different powers almost for different brightness? 

 

Any more ideas give let me know, but cannot wait to get the new car :)
