Keyfob coming apart

30 April 2009 - 06:51 PM

Anyone had trouble with their 3-button keyfob coming apart, happened a couple of times to my missus ,go to pull key out of ignition and shaft part of key is left in ignition and button part in hand, what a state to get into, yet another useless thing from FORD!!

Air filter

28 April 2009 - 06:33 PM

Engine cover / air box on the MK6; took it off the other day to check plugs and noticed on the underside of air box there is quite a few screws, I take it the air filter is in there? seems a lot of screws to undo just to get to the air filter!!

Rev needle slightly erratic when cold

26 April 2009 - 08:52 AM

driving the fiesta (MK6 1.25) I noticed that we stopped a few hundred yards after a cold start at lights and saw the rev counter needle appeared to be jumping up and down a little around the 1,000rpm mark (not running lumpy or anything) , I presume this is the car settling down as it's warming up and is normal to see it fluctuating like this? once fully warmed , seemed to settle ok where it should be.

1.25 initial throttle responsw

21 March 2009 - 06:31 PM

Anyone notice with their 1.25 MK6 that upon normal pull away there seems to be a slight lack of throttle response, on that initial throttle opening as it were, where the car could easily(and has done)stall, so you just have to give it that extra bit of throttle.
