#471697 Rant! (Warranty Issues)

Posted by Nathan54771 on Today, 12:31 PM

Try another dealer, you never know your luck. If you had purchased from a dealer and this fault developed, you could have demanded a repair free of charge under the Sale of Goods Act. This would be regardless of warranty issues.

You purchased privately so cannot enforce those rights sadly. Unless of course the person you bought it from buys and sells cars in the course of a business.


Hit the nail on the head, that sums it perfectly.

So unfortunately it's pay to repair or ignore the fault.

Personally don't think the dealer has done a great deal wrong. They've repaired your puddle light, just communication about the armrest obviously wasn't the best

Well you've just answered yourself, the guy you bought it from broke the armrest hinge and unfortunately it isn't warranty. The confusion also being the technician wouldn't tell you that as it isn't his job, they've made the phone call to inform you. I'm afraid that's part of buying privately, you don't get a dealer cover or the dealer repairing things like that before its re-sold to someone like yourself.

Don't mean this in a bad way, but if you noticed it when you purchased it you should of
1. Made them aware and get them to fix asap as its a new vehicle your purchasing
2. Not left it until your service because for all the technician knows uouve broken it since.

If the hinge is damaged it isn't warranty as someone has been too hard opening/closing it etc.

So In my opinion that isn't the dealers fault, but out of good will if you purchased the car from there Id tell the manager your situation and hope he understands and does it for free or discounted.


#470780 Steering Wheel Trim.

Posted by Nathan54771 on 28 March 2015 - 08:32 PM

Better to remove it if your having it wrapped. Get a better quality wrap so they can fold it behind.

Easily removed with a Torx bit removing the three screws behind it.

They are a replaceable part, you'll struggle to get hold of one without them trying to sell with the steering wheel though.

There's three torx screws behind it holding it in place.

Search ebay :)

Been and picked a J1 induction kit up today, got it for a decent price and it's not too bad condition just needs a good clean. So ordered a k&n recharge kit. Got it fitted on the car anyway and it sounds pretty good, quite until around 2.5/3k revs then you can hear it suck the air in then drops it with a nice "pssshhhtttt" when changing gear. Here's some pictures anyway....

Just might at some point change the hoses to red ? I've heard a normal induction hose won't fit which is a shame if so.

Mountune stopping 0% finance wasn't there choice according to mountune. I spoke to them regarding it two weeks ago, there reply was the bank has withdrawn the 0% offer as there wasn't enough people using the option.

No not that I'm aware, if it ever happened just put the standard back on if you was that worried.

I got the cobra on a group buy for £390 but it's usually around £490. Yes it comes ready built to be put straight on, so obviously been tested and designed before release.

They'd only do that if the exhaust was found to be at fault :) which is highly unlikely for it to cause engine damage.

Thanks and the only way you'll get a ford warranty approved exhaust is if mountune release it.

If I'm honest though, why do you want a ford warranty friendly exhaust ? It's warrantied by cobra and is much better quality than the standard exhaust. It's highly unlikely to require you to need a visit to ford, it just allows gases to exit the engine hahaa.

Each to there own I suppose, engine etc I can understand as its high cost and you want to keep warranty, but exhausts ? Next people will want warranty friendly wind deflectors and gel overlays.
