2014 Fiesta Safety Recall

23 February 2015 - 09:33 PM

Just a heads up guys Ford have issued a safety recall on all Fiestas manufactured after 17/09/14 due to a fault with rear seatbelts. My son got an email from our local dealer today so if affected you should be contacted but might be worth being pro-active and getting in touch with them if you may be affected.


I found this on Fiesta STOC which gives a bit more detail.


"Seat belt buckles made 17/09/14 up to 30/09/14, (build date of the car is irrelevant) the date is on the back of them so if its inbetween and including those dates it needs checking by your dealer, I wouldn't worry as Ford themselves will send out a letter to owners of affected vehicles."



Advice Wanted From Scottish Members

18 February 2015 - 09:15 PM

Hi guys North of the border I'm hoping you can give me some advice.

Me and my son are planning a driving trip to your wonderful country this June or July. We will have 4 maybe 5 days. We want to drive some spectacular routes in the mountains and visit john o'groats at some point.

I've already pencilled in Applecross pass but if you have any other suggestions I'd be really grateful to hear them.

Also any where we should avoid?

Cheers guys.

Paintmodz Fiesta St Exterior Plastics Upgrade

24 January 2015 - 10:23 PM

Today I've had my exterior plastics changed to piano black gloss ones by Chris at Paintmodz in Blackpool. You can also order them via SICO Developments. You can order direct to fit yourself or go to Blackpool and exchange them to get them cheaper, that's what I did and Chris will fit them for you as well having watched him fit the new parts I recommend that you do as well.


Quality is excellent and I would really recommend anyone who wants to change the appearance of their car have this done. It's what Ford should have done when they released the car in the first place.


Here's what I've had done today;

He can do any car and also paints the engine cover and various other parts.


Very reasonable prices make it a win win all round.


Here is Chris's buisness card (I have no connection with him and only recommend him based on the quality and price of his service) He is just starting out on his own after many years working in a local Ford dealer

Heater Controls

06 January 2015 - 06:15 PM

Does anyone know if I could swap the manual heater/aircon controls for the EATC electronic one. I have a 2014 ST2 and have seen one on eBay and fancy the upgrade if it's possible
