Confusing Service Schedule Requirements

08 February 2012 - 07:25 PM

My wife's 2009 (MK7) 1.4 petrol / manual Fiesta is due its 3rd service (3 years) shortly. The local Ford dealer says it's a Major as the service schedule is minor / minor / major. Is this correct as it appears to contradict what's in the service book?

Cheers for any advice.


Mk7 Seat Covers

18 December 2011 - 03:06 PM

The drivers seat of my wife's 2009 MK 7 Fiesta has started to wear on the right hand side of the seat bottom. The car has only done around 14,000 miles and she's only a svelte size 8. I'm guessing that it wearing out when she gets in and out of the car. Now it's probably pointless talking to Ford about it as it's probably fair wear and tear although I personally disagree. I'll talk to 'em anyway. The seats are a sort of black and grey cloth with dots.

Anyway, back to the question in hand. Does anyone know if there is a seat cover that perfectly fits the Fiesta (including for airbags)?

Ford Power Start Button Buzzing?

19 November 2011 - 04:01 PM

My wife's mk7 Fiesta with the Ford power start button has started to buzz from the area around the button. The buzzing is there with the engine running, with just the accessory power on and also with the accessory power off. Now, it's obviously not a vibration issue because we notice it when parked up even with the engine turned off. Is it likely to be an electrical issue and does anyone know if a similar thing has been heard of before?

Thanks for any replies.


Factory Glass - How Dark?

09 May 2011 - 09:38 PM

I'm trying to find out how dark is the factory tinted glass on my wife's '09 Fiesta Titanium as I'd like a similar tint fitted to my car. Anyone know what the tint is on factory tints?

Cheers for any help.

Brake Fluid Change After 10,000 Miles?

02 March 2011 - 02:31 PM

The wife's Mk7 1.4 petrol is exactly 2 years old and has covered just under 10,000 miles. It's getting its 2nd service today and Ford are advising that the fluid should be changed?! Really? Ford said it would be 39 and could be done during the service. The wife said no thanks.

Has anyone else had similar experiences during routine services? Surely the fluid can last more than 2 years / 10,000 miles?
