Thanks, I'll look into that.

Any pointers on how to go about changing them over?

In Topic: Fiesta Mk7 - Checking Next Service Interval?

17 March 2013 - 03:02 PM

I believe the reset's done by holding the brake and accelerator pedals for 20 seconds whilst the key's in "accessory" mode (first notch, I believe). Mine's a keyless start, so not actually worked out how I'm going to manage this myself however!


And Mr Singh's absolutely right on the Motability front - it's not uncommon for carers to drive them. 


I'm aware the next service is coming up pretty soon so perfect timing really (normally get these things done immediately upon purchase for piece of mind). Hadn't really considered contacting the dealer who did the previous service to ask; hope they're kind enough to entertain the request!


On a final note, given I haven't had the chance to purchase a Haynes yet - I've been looking around for videos and guides for servicing but have yet to find a relevant one for the mk7...


Plugs and air filter seem pretty straight forward (assuming the air box comes apart with a few screws).

Is a brand new sump plug/washer completely necessary? (I've switch from a Golf, where it wasn't).

I assume there's an undertray in the way of the sump; again I presume these are released via a few cross-head screws.

Is it advisable to access the oil filter from above or below the car? (I've read both, and it's chucking it down outside so haven't had a chance to take a proper look yet).


Thanks again!
