Water In Spare Tyre Well

21 July 2013 - 08:25 PM

Had to change the rear indicator bulb tonight and took the rear floor out to better remove the side wall.  However I was shocked to find the spare wheel sitting in about 2 inches of water.


Is there not a drain for this?

Huge Problem With Static Shocks

07 April 2013 - 10:43 PM

Every time, and I mean every time, I get out my car and touch the body I get a massive and very painful electric shock, To the extent you can see the spark fly from the car to me.  Yesterday I took the key out the ignition and standing with the door open I went to put the key back into the ignition and, as the key touched the ignition barrel, the spark was so strong there was a loud crack with a visible blue electric arc.


Surely this isn't right?  What would be causing that? 

Some Pics Of My Nice New Zetec S

29 March 2013 - 06:28 PM

A few photos taken quickly with my phone.  Zetec S Ecoboost in race red.  Extras include privacy glass and auto wipers/lights and I have changed the bulbs to silver indicator bulbs, blue side lights and Osram Nightbreaker Plus Dipped Beam.  Looking at how to upgrade the DRL/Full Beams as well.  Have also fitted chrome tax disk holder and at some point I am going to fir an S badge to the front grille similar to the new ST.


Hope you like :)

New Zetec S 1.0 Speakers

23 March 2013 - 11:26 PM



Thinking of upgrading  the speakers in my new Ecoboost Zetec S.  Does anyone know much about this for this car?  How easy would it be to fit them?  I would ideally want to replace at least the front ones, however I may decide to fit some in the parcel shelf to replace the rear ones.  What would be involve with this?


Thanks again

Ml 7 And Mk 8 Differences

22 March 2013 - 10:03 PM



Have the new MK8 Zetec S and was wondering how much of a difference there is other than the obvious front grille.  I am thinking of getting door sill protectors but can only find MK7 ones.  Are these likely to be the same?


Thanks for your advice
