Topics I've Started


26 August 2014 - 07:13 AM

After exactly 27 days I finally received my de-tangoed silver visions.

I'm very glad I looked at this forum before taking out the lights otherwise I'm sure something might have broken first of all, the cost of getting them shipped to SA was a bit mutch, just hope we had a shop here, cost me about $50 for two pairs of globes, the shipping and tax was morethan the two pair of globes combined, but I am very happy with the result.

So after taking out the left front light and it all when very smoothly I forgot to put the damn waterproof cap back on after fitting the new globe and reinstalling the light, so I had to redo that :iim:

Then it was time for the nightmare right front light, this one just gave me problems from the get go, I spend about 15min just trying to remove the plug from the light then useing just two fingers spend another 20min unplugging the turn signal plug that holds the globe in place, when I had to reinstall, the globe fell out inside the light. who here has ever played the game getting one ball through a maze to the centre, well it was something like that, without braking the ball.


The rear globes went on quick, once I realized there is a plastic screw inside that holds the lights in place, not incl. the two screws on the outside, well sorry for the long read, but here they are.

Led Vs Hid For Projector Lights

28 July 2014 - 10:41 AM

I would like to know if it is worth going the LED route rather than the HID lights for the fiesta projector lights? I see some of the LED's advertise you do not need ballasts for the lights, but has anyone tried them? and are they worth it, or should I just stick to the HID convertion?


I use to have a Golf 5 with Xenons, and it was like driving during the day and would like to at least get close to that, I'm not interrested in the Blue effect lights, I know that as long as I stick to 6000k and below I should be fine with that.


Would these work for what I have in mind?



Aircon Switching On By Itself

24 June 2014 - 07:37 AM

I first thought it was just my imagination, but after switching the aircon off and then switching the the car off and back on again, I noticed that the aircon switches itself back on again automatically, I have the pre-facelift 2011 Titanium model but without auto climate control.


can anyone give me some insight on why the car keeps on switching the aircon on after the car has been switched off and back on again, is this a setting? sins its in the middle of winter here in SA I would prefer not having to switch the aircon back off again every time I start the car?


I have attached a pic, hopefully you can see the type of aircon I have

Warranty And Service Plan Question

10 April 2014 - 07:50 AM

We have a 4 year 120 000km Warranty and a 4 year 60 000km Service plan included in the purchase of a Ford Fiesta, going through the manual yesterday I noticed that the car was registered in Fords name Nov 2011 therfore being a 2011 model in SA and they drove it for year and a bit (Demo Model) with 22 000 km on they sold the car to its first owner on Dec 2012 so the car was registered Nov 2011 but date of Delivery states Dec 2012.


The Booklet says Warranty and Service plan start from date of Delivery, so does this mean that my cars Service/Warranty plan only started on Dec 2012 and this gives me till Dec 2016?


I only ask this question because I always thought Warranty and Service plans started on date of Registration?
