#164316 Auto Fold Mirrors

Posted by shaz4473 on 01 February 2012 - 09:37 PM

I have found this information on another forum and thought I would add it as it might be useful for others - I have not tried it yet, hopefully I will get a chance at the weekend(weather permitting!)

This might manage to reset the mirror and stop the clicking

take off the mirror control panel
disconnect the loom
set the mirror all the way forward to the front on the car
lock the car then plug the loom back in
the mirror should then fold all the way in
disconnect the loom and unlock the car then fold the mirror all the way forward again
lock the car and reconnect the loom
this time the mirror will only come to the normal open position
disconnect the loom again
unlock the car
fold the mirror in to the closed position
reconnect the loom
lock the car
the motor will then catch up with the mirror position and should be back to normal when you unlock the car and then lock it again no clicking on close you may need to play around with the sequence a bit to get yours right the first time"



#159755 Cost Of New Key?

Posted by shaz4473 on 06 January 2012 - 04:53 PM

Hi, I was wondering if anyone can help here?

My mum has a 2007 ford fiesta zetec and unfortunately has lost one of the remote keys(3 button fob). She does have another 3 button remote as she got two when she bought the car new but when I contacted my local ford dealer I have been told that it will cost 80 plus vat for a replacement key and then 91.20 inc vat for getting the key programmed, taking 1 hour to do so.
I am hoping that someone can tell me that she does not need to pay this amount! I have been searching online for information but am getting rather confused.
Can anyone advise on if there are other options?
