Hi all

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??

#397091 Fiesta Mk8 Power Folding Work With Non Power Folding Wing Mirrors?

Posted by D13 HPD 95 on 13 August 2014 - 02:58 PM

its easy to do

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

Posted by D13 HPD 95 on 17 July 2014 - 09:43 AM

there is a company linked on here that will fit the dab set up for you if you would like, it can be done on most new cars i beleive ive not seen a new fiesta with one yet tho, but id say its pretty simply to, if you go to a local car audio shop they will help you and tell you everything you need to know or go to a dab specalist who does this conversion daily im not sure how much it would cost but id say a safe bet would be under £300


sorry mis read that completly lol, and i dont know that you can do that with the sony unit alot of people have tried and not got it to work so sold it on again but im sure if you go to a decent shop they will beable to do it for you on the basic unit

#378987 Fiesta 2014 Bonnet Bra?

Posted by D13 HPD 95 on 27 June 2014 - 09:22 AM

if your that worried about it you can get a clear wrap protector which ford even do for you, just a wrap they put on but its see through and doesnt look any different and protectors all the paint too, tbh however carful you are about it you will always get stone chips just have to be quick to spot them and deal with them job done, just dont get a bonnet bra im sick in my mouth everytime i see one

#378538 Oil Change

Posted by D13 HPD 95 on 25 June 2014 - 09:50 PM

I could see the reason behind it but surly ford would have deep cleaned all parts of the engine and ancillaries before installing them it would make sense to, but i would say an oil change at any point is a good thing anyway i try to do mine every 4-6 between services
