In Topic: c max spare wheel

17 March 2009 - 10:50 PM

Hi I've just picked up my '07 Zetec which has 17" wheels and the canister of goo instead of a spare, as we are planning on driving to Paris later this year I was wondering if anyone knew where I could get a space saver for cheaper than my local ford dealership? I've looked on ebay but can't find one the same size diameter as what our car has.
Thanks in advance. :)

Hi I hve one of these space saver with good tyre I live in doncaster how much would you pay for it

Chipped 1.6 tdci
was returning around 42.5 mpg around the village odd trip into town.
with chip on there is def more power so the temp to put your foot down is crazy but honestly if you keep off the power pedal
then it does 46 mpg does not sound much but its 3.5 miles and if you want to you can cover them quicker.
Views on chips please?

Spent 2000 looking for the fault on mine.
Replacement parts fitted as they were finding the fault
Full set of injectors.
New Battery
Fuel filter
Emptied tank of contents
Flush out fuel pipes
Re programme ECU
Full set of injectors again as they said the ECU messed up the first set becauseit was not programmed right (no charge )
and a whole lot of labour
Any how they had the car for three months not weeks yeah I mean MONTHS
They gave me the CHOCKS AWAY GINNER ! and off I flew.
ok I did gain three weeks of fabulous trouble free motoring when one dark evening Stop start
So up went the bonnet and out came my torchbut the battery on the torch was low and it did nt last long whoppee gud!
The bestest timing I could have wished for.
In thr darkness around what appears to be a soliednoid were only to be seen in the dark were short circuiting proofs!
Replaced the partand ok to date.
Question is 2000 got spent on on parts and labour that did not fix it Jim!
I t was a flat battery that eventually repaired the fault.
So you gentle folk out there dont go looking for your faults first thing next moring.
Put on your boots and take out your batteries on the torch and happy searching!

You can get one of those ceramic heaters from Halfords or other Discount ceters they blow warm to hot air in a direction made by you onto the screen you want demisting.

usually caused by corrosion from the acid i think, i have heard many people say they just use boiling water on it. obviously be careful not to short the terminals.



Thanks but no thanks with todays fine electronics on cars today somehow electricty and water have two messages they shout out to me,
