Replacing Interior Bulbs

12 January 2015 - 01:12 PM

I got these from HIDs Direct for the front courtesy light:





I don't know if the 44mm Festoon will fit but might give it a try today. I just need to know how do you get at the bulbs, is there a good guide on here?

Video Editing Software For Dash Cam Footage

04 December 2014 - 11:09 AM

Could anyone recommend a good video editing program (for Windows) which makes it easy to cover up moving objects e.g. number plates in dash cam footage? The picture below shows basically what I want to be able to do:

Indicators Auto 3-Flash Thingy

28 November 2014 - 01:37 PM

As the title says, the auto 3 flash thing on the indicators seems to not be working 100% lately. I'm noticing it more now than I used to, and I know sometimes if you just touch the indicator stalk it only flashes once, but sometimes it just flashes once when I'm sure I've pushed it far enough.


Does anyone know what is the correct way to activate the 3-flash? That might sound like a stupid question but I though you have to move it up or down just before it "clicks on" and hold it there for a moment, but just playing around with it while parked it seems like it also does the 3-flash if you give it a quick flick.


Like I said it's not 100%, maybe it's just the usual Ford build quality but I'd like to know if anyone else is having problems with this too.

Winter Tyres For St / Zetec S

31 October 2014 - 03:48 PM

I'm looking at getting winter tyres soon but I want to just swap them onto the rims, so need them to be the correct size: 205 / 40 R17 (that's why I included ZS, they have the same size tyres right?)


These are proving quite hard to find online. Here's the best I found so far: http://lovetyres.com...-LM25/205-40-17


But they only have one in stock. I'll give them a call and see if they will get more soon, but that looks like the best price for a decent quality tyre.


Has anyone bought winter tyres in this size before, and can you recommend a specific tyre and where to get it from?
