      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one.

The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Hi hope you can help, I have the same Ka you had/have, Mine is a 2007 model 40000miles and have discovered a soaking wet foot well, how much did it cost to get the work done with Ford?  Thanks.

  2. Air Con Bulb Trouble

    I have been having some trouble with my Ka's A/C illumination LED which has been acting strange for about a year which is when the light stopped working altogether. Since having the A/C regassed I have been using it a lot more, once or twice a week or more, and the bulb decided to start working again! However the light only works when other lights are not turned on. When I turn on the sidelights or headlights, the A/C light goes off but the A/C stays on. Does anyone know what could cause this type of fault?
  3. Mud Flap

    mud flaps nothing to do with an MOT, look on the road you'll soon notice dozens of cars with mud flaps missing, hanging off, etc.
  4. Ford Ka soaking wet driver's side footwell

    Ford customer relations is just a big call centre, sending a letter there won't really get you anywhere. I handled all my complaints/problems over the phone. As long as you get the name of the person you're talking to, and a case number, you shouldn't have too much of a problem.
  5. Washer Jets Leaking Fluid Down The Bonnet

    It did, but they soon changed it on the later models, wonder why.
  6. Washer Jets Leaking Fluid Down The Bonnet

    I've seen this on many cars and simply assumed it was normal.
  7. 59 Plate Door Panel Removal ?

    Get your dealer to fix it, its only a 59 reg! They should do it as a goodwill gesture for you.
  8. Mk2 Ka Mpg Computer?

    yes it does, should be there. vastly inaccurate when i had a ka as a courtesy car, read 99 mpg at one point!
  9. Mk 7 Build Quality... Really That Good ?

    you were almost there - but my ka is a mk1, built in valencia spain, and its had enough problems for an '08 reg which is what prompted me to suggest the spanish plant isnt so clever.
  10. Mk 7 Build Quality... Really That Good ?

    build quality is probably worse on the valencia, spain built ones rather than the ones built in germany - can anyone back this up with some sort of evidence?
  11. Spark Plugs

    NGK plugs work well in the Duratec, I'm told.
  12. Soaking Wet Footwell Again!!

    It is concerning that the problem lies at the factory in regards to the quality of the welding (or rather, lack of it). Seeing as the spot welds are done robotically, how could Ford possibly get this wrong? This is going to cost Ford a lot in warranty repair work.
  13. Poor Mpg

    doubtful, the car runs perfectly
  14. Soaking Wet Footwell Again!!

    carpet was replaced for free under warranty when my ka had a leak
  15. Soaking Wet Footwell Again!!

    nothing wrong with the mk6 fiesta, learnt to drive in one of those and almost bought one brand new.
