Custom make?? If you can of course but im sure a fabrication shop workshop will do it for you, if you watch mighty car mods gramps builds they make a custom one from the old manifold just cut all the tuning out flat and built up a new one from there

Stehan, i think the only company that do a super charger for the fiesta is priced around £3500 plus fitting but i believe you get everything you need to get it to work is the remap but. After that you would want bigger front brakes and defo disc rears too more power your gonna want to stop quicker
No he was on his own and about mid 30's but it was an old t reg Volvo it didnt look in the best condition anyway even if i had smashed the f&g light the way the car looked it was probably smashed any way. I have checked my PayPal and voice mails but nothing so im not telling anyone like insurance so will wait and pley i had no idea
Basically long story short i left my house today and i was hearing a rattling now whenever i hit the throttle and it sounded like it was coming from the exhaust but i just carried on and 210miles later when i was on the a1 m going past Leeds the heat shield from under the car come off behind me and hit a guys car and smashed his fog light i stopped we chatted got details ect but when i said here take my number and PayPal address get it fixed and bill it to me he said no hes ringing his insurance and claiming so my question is, is it my fault? As it was just a part the came off the car even tho i had no idea it was about to fall off i do keep the car in good condition and do monthly checks ect and it only just had a service and it wasnt picked up then
So whats the next step and am i to fault or do i wait it out and see what happens as it was only his fog light glass unit that smashed no other scratches or damage so surly it wouldn't be worth paying an excess for a £40 fog unit??
move the mirror right down and unclip the mirror and remove the heater element wires if you have them
the 3 clips hold the cap in place use a big screw driver to pop that off,
then the mirror indicator comes off and the open the door there is a rubber gromet around 30mm there is a 10mm nut inside i believe this will release the mirror
then to remove the wiring from the loom
use a small knife to remove the door handle cover and there is 3 bolts to remove using a torx 25 i think
then the door open release thing on the inside of it you will see a little black flap use a tiny flat driver and remove that and remove the same torx 25 bolt,
the to get the door card you have to carfully pop all the clips all the way round untill the card comes of in your hand
the undo the door release cable and window wiring
remove the wing mirror wiring and the wing mirror can be taken off
then put the mirror in place and tighten it up after you have feed the new wiring back through
plug it in, put the ignition on and check the mirror moves
then its a case of putting the door cable back on, window wiring
push the door card back into places and carful not to break any of the clips
the put all the 4 bolts back in and push the 2 covers back into place and jobs done
if the mirror is in bits just put the base on and when the door card is back together put the indicator bulb back in and the cover then push the cap back on makes a horrible noise but is fine and then clip the mirror back on easy job but will take around an hour
and yes the youtube vid will be same just the plug is different
hi m8 no you wont be able to fit it unless like said you rewire the 5 pin plug yourself, if you have a look on my for sale page i have a mk7/7.5 driver mirror unit for sale if your after the drivers side?
nice lenny haha, i would have search high and low to find remains of the cops in there maybe so stashed drugs or something lol, but yh hes going to ring me if the deal falls through but i doubt it maybe next time
