Bent Alloy Rims

22 July 2014 - 11:42 AM

I have bent 3 alloy rims in the last 5 years, and have had to replace them.  They were the 7 spoke 16" with 195 45 profile tyres.   Does anyone know if the new 16" wheels are stronger that are fitted on the 2013 Zetec fiestas.  I know they are 50 profile, but think they are worth changing.

Wiper Blades Don't Fit

23 March 2014 - 06:07 PM

I purchased a set of genuine Ford wiper blades from ebay for my Mk7 firsta 12 months ago.  Clearly marked 2008 onwards but they don't fit my March 2009 fiesta.  Looking from the top, the fixing part is rounded at one end whereas the originals are square.  any ideas?

Replacing Front Brake Pads

17 March 2014 - 01:06 AM

I have just replaced the discs and pads on my Mk7 fiesta.  I used dealer parts by Motorcraft.  The pads had a different backing in that there were 2 nipples sticking out of the back of the pads.  This meant that I could not use the existing backing shims from the old pads.  Is this normal.

Mot Failures

My fiesta is comming up to its 5th year and 52,000 miles. I was wondering whether there was any particulat MOT failure points I should check for the Mk 7 fiesta.
