  1. Never heard of them. Any good? I'm more East Hampshire but would love to check out an alternative specialist to Hendy
  2. Thanks iantt! I'm taking that to mean devices like 'Autel Maxitpms TS508' don't support Fiesta because Fiesta don't have those options to begin with. Will go ahead and put it back to the manual settings then. Best wishes
  3. Thanks for all the responses. This is frustrating to hear. The garage is run by Hendy Ford, a ford dealership in the UK. I have no idea why he's done this, but he's set the TPMS at his unofficial settings so if I put the pressures on the B pillar on it's just going to trigger the TPMS. Is there a way I can change this setting back myself? I'm looking at OBD2 tools but its unclear which ones allow you to change this setting and I don't want to break the bank. Would be nice if we could just set this on the dash. Can it be done in ForScan? I guess with the insurance I can claim the dealership has liability if the insurance doesn't want to pay out. They represent Ford after all. They also sent me a video with the mechanic stating the tyre pressures he set them to. Oh and it's a 1.0 Ecoboost 99bhp Titanium. Sorry I forgot to add that to my first comment.
  4. Hi everyone, I have a Ford Fiesta 2015 model with tyres which are 195/50 R16. I've always put them at front 2.3 bar (33 psi) and rear 1.8 bar (26 psi) because that's what my manual says and the placard in the car says they should be. https://www.puretyre.co.uk/vehicle-placard-for-ford-Fiesta-13-17-195/50R16/ My mechanic has put them at the "correct spec" saying it's front 2.1 bar (30.5 psi) and rear 1.9 bar (27.5 psi). I'm really confused where these numbers come from. Searching around I can't find these alternative numbers anywhere and they can't give an answer other than insisting "That's the standard across all Fiestas" Can I trust the mechanic with these pressures? They are an actual Ford dealership. Are these numbers you would have used or would you go with what's on the Placard? Many thanks in advance
