  1. Hi everyone, I want to do this purely for cosmetics- I have some nice gun-metal coloured alloys but the rear looks a bit crap with drums. I fancy the look of tear discs and getting the calipers powder coated gun-metal. The whole process looks like a pretty big job....
  2. Anyone ever converted from rear drum brakes to rear disc brakes? Thinking of doing this but wondered if anyone had ever done it, or will it require replacing half the car??!! James
  3. I'm thinking about converting my TDCI rear drum brakes to disc brakes like the ST's. Has anyone ever done this? What's unvolved? Is it a straight swap or does it require replacing half the car? Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!!! James
  4. KHi everyone! Another screwed-up I cant fix! I used Forscan to set up the global opening/closing of my 2016 Fiesta MK7.5 windows - pressing and holding on unlocking (on the remote) causes both windows to open...fine, works! But on press and hold on locking- only the passenger window closes- the drivers window doesn't move and a strange noise emits from the O/S folding mirror. Has anyone experienced this before, and is there a solution which makes both windows open and close as they should??? Regards, James
  5. Anyone got any thoughts on this stupid window closing!!! James
  6. Hi everyone, just want to say thanks for all your kind help with this retro fit- it's all installed and Forscan changes made- works great! I also used Forscan to activate the window global opening/closing- strangely when operated by the remote- both windows open- but when locking, only the passenger window shuts- the drivers window remains fully down.... James
  7. So I downloaded Forscan to my Android (Samsung) phone- does anyone know how to get the extended licence for Android, and also how to apply it? Everything I read seems to be all about Windows O/S's. Help! James
  8. This is simply awesome mate!! Thankyou so very much for this. One question- what is an F Super version 2? I've searched ebay and it come up with all sorts of crap!!!!! Regards,

  10. Lespes- many thanks. I've visited a breakers and got some blocks so that I can remove pins to make up the two additional wires to connect the 2x satnav/2x stereo connections. What I'm struggling with is identifying which is screen pin 6- radio pin 4 and screen pin 12-radio pin 5!!!!!! Do you have an image or anything I can use to identify which is which? See the image below. I'm pulling my hair out on this- please help!!!!

  12. Thanks for your help with this. Do you think the one below is the one for an under-cowl installation? Regards, James
  13. I've been trolling Ebay looking for Fakra ended satnav antenna- I very found a genuine Ford one- but it appears to be just a box with the connector sticking out the edge.......will this thing fit in or will I need to get one on a cable? I've read several posts on here from people who have concealed their antenna under the cowl....
  14. Depends on how good you are with a drill....you actually only need the two spats (on each corner of the bumper) if you drill out for the tiny slot holes in each, then rivet them back at the bottom (effectively creating an ST/Zetec bumper) then you can fit your diffuser, or most of the variants of it. All that's needed is some careful marking out, and your sorted. James
