  • 2012 fiesta squeaking

    Was wondering if anyone knew what could be wrong with my car. I had it serviced August 2019 and the auxiliary belt was changed, however, I noticed a squeak come from the front of the car days after, and when it squeaks sometimes ipthe car shuddered. It’s not triggered by anything (eg. pulling away, accelerating, or changing gear) sometimes I wouldn’t even be moving. I just recent changed the auxiliary belt again as it was perished. I also noticed a loss of power not sure if that is related

    Front fog lights not working in 'auto' mode.

    My daughter was saying her Fiesta mk7 front fog lights dont work. Sure enough, they are not working when the switch is set to 'auto' lights. The main lights come on as designed, but no fogs when I push the button. On 'manual' lights, only one is working, but I suspect the bulb, as I know that the foglight that doesn't work was replaced prior to her buying the car....along with the bumper. Should the fogs be working in auto mode or only in manual mode?

    MK 4 Hydraulic bonnet struts fitted

    I was very surprised upon taking delivery of my car that it still had the old fashioned manual bonnet strut. We had a late 90's Merc 190 with hydraulic struts and I can't believe a new Ford doesn't come with them.  Anyways, I did some searching and found there were a fair few kits online, incliding aliexpress and dhgate. I eventually got mine from NB Styling through Ebay, a little more expensive than other kits but the quality looked better. I am really impressed with them, they were e

    Key-fob + spare keys stolen...

    Hi all, Hope you are doing well in these strange times. Last night, my home was broken into and the key-fob for my 2008 Focus was taken. Along with it, they also took the spare (manual) key. They did not take the car, however, as it wasn't as close to the house as normal so they were most likely not able to see the lights flash when attempting to use the fob. 1) I have a weirdly cut 3rd key which only unlocks the bonnet - not the driver's side door. To take precaution until my loc

    Mark 3 estate, airbag light

    Hi, First post here, and it's a plea for help, be kind 🙂 I've had a 1.6 estate on a 14 plate (mark 3 I think) for five years or so now. Just recently I had the cam belt done at 90K, and two new tyres. A day or so later, the airbag light is now on... Does anyone know how I can fix this, please? According to a friend who has a code reader it's the passenger air bag. His suggestion was to check the connectors under the passenger seat. I have looked at, unplugged and re-plug

    • Actually, they do. I wasn't concentrating and was pushing the rear fog button.😆 Just tried it again, covered the sensor with my hand, pressed the correct button and they do come on even with auto lights selected on the main knob. One still doesn't work but as I suspected, it's the bulb.
    • Bumper off will do it, can get the sensor out without removing the bottle. Its on the front face of the bottle level with the bumper rail/chassis rail area. Bumper is fairly easy to remove -   
    • Good luck changing the fuel filter. There isn't one. 
    • Was wondering if anyone knew what could be wrong with my car.

I just recent changed the auxiliary belt again as it was perished. I also noticed a loss of power not sure if that is related but something doesn’t feel right about the car. I will service it in the next few months to see if anything is noticed. The car sits at 67,000 miles so i’m guessing it’s age related, is there any common problems that are known at 70,000 miles? The car is in relatively good condition, a few mechanics always say it look as if it’s been well looked after. The squeak doesn’t affect anything apart from accelerating can be a bit slow, so it’s not in my way I would rather it not happen.   Thanks
    • Hi when you get your keys programmed there is an option within the sys to delete any previous keys , although the old keys will physically open and turn the ignition they won’t be able to start the car .  Unfortunately all your options depend on how much money your willing to pay
