Fiesta Mk7 Interior Light Problem

08 January 2015 - 06:24 PM

I put the interior light onto permanent before, so it was constantly on for a few minutes or so earlier, when I switched it back to the middle position (on when doors open) it stays on constantly now even when the car is locked
The footwell lights and display go off but the interior light stays on and won't go off unless you change the position of the switch which seems very loose
So I took the light cover off and tried another bulb, still the same and can't work out why it's doing this
I've read that it's to do with the contacts in the light but no one goes into great detail about what needs to be done to sort it
I was wondering if anyone could help me out?
Thanks guys

Free Fiesta Mk6 Rear Lights Free

27 July 2014 - 04:01 PM

Going through my garage today I found a set of rear lights from my mk6 fiesta
Both fully working as far as I can remember but unable to test them as I don't have that car anymore
The left one has some red plastic missing near the bottom where it has been cracked in the post and the right has an even smaller chip of plastic missing at the bottom

Neither of the chips affect the working and both still keep out water

I have no use for these anymore so anyone that wants to collect them from the Manchester area is welcome to them for free

Tried to show the damage in the pictures, but unless up close you wouldn't be able to notice Attached File  ImageUploadedByFord OC1406476226.478865.jpg   112.68KB   10 downloadsAttached File  ImageUploadedByFord OC1406476248.211191.jpg   107.69KB   10 downloadsAttached File  ImageUploadedByFord OC1406476256.794027.jpg   101.53KB   10 downloadsAttached File  ImageUploadedByFord OC1406476264.694510.jpg   111.64KB   10 downloadsAttached File  ImageUploadedByFord OC1406476272.362104.jpg   110.83KB   5 downloads

Brake Calliper & Drum Paint Color

19 April 2014 - 09:25 AM

I'm thinking of painting my brakes today seen as the weathers nice for a change

Think I'm definitely going to go black on the rear drums
But don't know whether to go gloss or satin black?

And also what colour do you guys think would look good on the front?
Was debating halfords blue brake paint but not sure what the exact colour would look like with my car being a sort of blue colour

The car looks standard from the outside, so I don't want to go for the boy racer thing of bright red, I want something subtle that will actually look nice on the car

Would like to hear your opinions on what you guys think would look best!

Focus Mk2.5 Wheel Centre Caps

08 April 2014 - 10:10 AM

Annoyingly one of my wheel centre caps seems to have fallen out whilst I was driving

Any one got an idea how much ford charge for a new one?
Seen them for about a fiver on eBay , not wanting to spend a lot but it's one of them things that really annoys me because I know it's missing

Thanks guys

Focus Mk2.5 Brake Pad Question

31 March 2014 - 05:19 PM

Not sure if this is in the correct section

But I was cleaning my wheels today and thought I'd have a look at the brake pads to see how much life they had left in them

I noticed that the pads had a sort of slant on them which meant that only around half of the area of the pad was actually pressing against the disc when the brakes are applied
They have plenty of life left in them but seems strange

This is the same on both sides but can't see any reason for why they would be like this, would seem like a really inefficient way for ford to make them

Just wondering if anyone could say whether this is the same on there's or whether it would be worth me replacing the pads if there not meant to be like this
