    Mk8 Fiesta St Line X - Further Issues

    Thanks for the update, glad you got some progress, though surprised at the cut and shut on the brackets. I'll have another good look at my bonnet when I get chance though as I've got a narrowing gap at the offside rear the rubber stop trick might not work. I may just leave well alone provided there remains no actual rubbing!

    Ford Mustang Sync 3 Upgrade

    Hi I've got a ford mustang 16 plate face lift with the big sync 3 console but its running sync 2 I've rang Ford and they keeps saying I'm going to need to upgrade my console, the console is already the one installed in the sync 3's. I was just wondering if anyone could tell me where I can get the files and how to update it Thanks Chris

    Focus Bulb Lists

    Think that's right yes, the connector is a 3 pin setup. I looked but couldn't find anything online (didn't look hard) and I am not competent enough with a soldering iron to rig something up. If you come up with a part of a solution I'd love to hear about it

    2007 1.3 KA coolant drain

    Got the assembly from a local reputable motor factor. Didn't really trust the cheapees on ebay! Job was quite reasonable to do and the KA is now back on the road. Thanks for posting!

    Whooshing Sound from Rear N/S?

    I assume the fans are for the cooling aspect as my heated seats (cloth not leather - so heat only) don’t make any sound at all.

    Mk7 Fogs/DRL on a Style trim?

    2000 miles a month is over double the average milage... The mk7.5 doesn't have brilliant DRL's really. Most people wouldn't know the difference between that and just having the headlights on all the time.

    Help malfunction!!!!!

    You need to read the codes really. Chances are it will have stored one which will make this process a lot easier.

    Ford Focus 1.8tdi 2008 Poor starting cold or hot

    +1 for @Tdci-Peter post above. It is very easy to not seat the rubber o-ring correctly when refitting the fuel filter housing "lid" after replacing the filter and I know 2st hand that not ***** the locking collar back on quite tight enough can let just enough air in to cause problems (but the car can still be driven). I'd start off with the cheap things like checking the fuel filter is "fresh/new" and that the sealing o-ring isn't scrunched up.
  13. Hi to everyone in the group. I wonder if somebody could help me please. I have a problem with my 2006 Mondeo 2.2tdci. it started off when could it would idle rough for a few minutes until warm them would run fine while it was running rough there was no smoke and even under hard acceleration there's no smoke it pulls well in all gears. After switching off and leaving for a short while with the engine warm it will start but run at low idle (500-600 rpm) the battery light and engine light would come on and there's no throttle response after 30 sec or so the revs would pick up and it would run fine I have found out that with the ignition on the bolts would drop to 11.8 and when the lights go out and throttle response comes back its charging at 14.6 so I checked all the wiring on the smart charge system and cleaned all earth's but still didn't make any difference. I then went onto putting a code reader in but no codes are stored I have also changed the battery for a calcium one again made no difference. I found out after reading online the injectors could need recoding which I done this sorted out the misfire/hunting from cold but is still the same when engine is warm. I have now done a leak off test with the 5 min test. The results look to me as they are over leaking but all very evenly cylinder 1 was 70ml cylinder 2 was 60 cylinder 3 was 60 and cylinder 4 was 70. Has anybody else had this sort of problem and willing to share your wisdom. Many thanks for your time

    Ford Fiesta ST keyfob/battery issues

    You got the batteries the right way round? The position of remote when you have flat batteries is in the vicinity of where a conventional key would be inserted into steering lock on column.
  15. probably two thirds of my mileage is constant 70ish mph without needing to touch brakes. on my previous fiesta they lasted 77k, when I bought that car it only had 1,600 miles on it so I know 77k was first replacement. second set lastest 69k.

    Focus Mk2.5 ignition key problem

    Have you tried jiggling the steering wheel at the point it get stuck to see if it moves?
  17. I replaced engine of mondeo mk4 1.6 petrol with engine from focus mk2 with kode HXDA and after 11.000 km all work good, maybe on 5th gear it is little bit slower but not so big think.

    Voice Activation

    Well I've tried using the WD-40 specialist contact cleaner and no luck. I'm pretty sure that there isn't anything beneath the switch as everything else is fine as I mention. As I pulled the Bluetooth fuse the other day (with no change), I also did a Sync Master reset just now (with no change). Either there is something else wrong OR I am missing something. Any other ideas would be appreciated. *Note* Bluetooth calling works fine as I took my work phone with me and called my personal phone, answered and ended the call using the steering wheel buttons.

    How Many People Can You Fit In A Focus?

    I had a neighbour a few years ago who had some relations turn up in a people carrier ( old nissan ) I was watching through my living room window. Assuming it was capable of seating 8 Inc driver , that was what the max I was expecting to get out. Well it turned out I counted 19 Inc small children get out!! I couldn't believe it.
  23. Apologies if this has been covered already and this is in the wrong place:- perhaps someone can point me in the right direction. I have recently picked up a Ford Fiesta Edge 2010, but I cant get the bluetooth to visible show on my Iphone 7, I have turned my phone on and off and tried with the ignition on the car on and off. The Voice Recognition is working but shows no phones connected (Obviously). Its just frustrating and I want to try and fix it
