      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      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. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Buyers guide KA Mk2

    no leaks or rusting atall as from 2010 onwards its basically a fiat 500 1 4 years or 120k based on a 1.2 fiat 500 engine but fords may differ 2 no rust 3 no leaks.. we had the ka2010 and it leaked on the gearbox seal had it replaced under warranty. 40 on the clock at the time of leak and it was a ford box if i had to pay the cost would have been approx £240 4 no leaks in car 5 all electrics are fine some of the kas from 2010 has a ford lump in and some the fiat lump. drive a fiat 500 then the 2010 ka its basically the same but the ka is much cheaper
  2. Air bag dashboard lights.

    check the wires underneath the seat as they play up sometimes and cause a short if the seat is moved back and forward
  3. MK7.5 Fiesta ST-Line - Subtle Mods!

    mrg take care modding the car as the way your going it looks like you may invalidate your insurance. even a change of radio in a car can invalidate the insurance unless you notify them . my son has the st3 with all the extras added by ford . the lit up scuff plates are a great touch. just dont over do it as your starting to look like a boy racer just by removing the eco badge and changing the mirror covers

    hope its sorted
  5. Misfire after cambelt change

    take abck to garage to get it fitted correctly if the problems started after the belt was fitted
  6. Misfire after cambelt change

    can i ask why you had the cam belt changed at 62k. it does sound like the belt is not set correctly or they messed with something and may have damaged it. i would not pay anymore for any parts as its their fault the car is playing up unless it was like it prior to having the belt done. i understand having the aux belt changed but the cam belt ?
  7. Ford KA dent and paint been removed

    looking at about £400 - £500 i recon to do a proper job. panel beater filler respray
  8. The selector maybe slipping. Get under the car and look at the bar that comes off the gear shift and see if the clamp that connects it to the rod from the gbox is secure and not moved
  9. you would be best to run the tyres down thats on the car and get new wheels and tyres that are more standard sized after the winter. https://www.mytyres.co.uk/start.html?s_kwcid=AL!432!10!3374297465!40880788289&ef_id=WJq67AAABaQA5ko9:20171024052540:s http://www.k300performance.co.uk/apps/tyre-size.php?tyrenum=195%2F45+r16+84v
  10. trust ford ashton gate are a bunch of dicks. i was going to buy a new fiesta and and pay cash and all they wanted to sell me was what they had on the forecourt in the colour of their choice and on finance. they had a really bad attitude and tried the salesmans patter on me but i already prepared for them as i think i know more answers than they did as i always do my reseach first. next time its a part you need goto the parts place as they go out their way to help you the car if 4 yrs+ so its obviously out of warranty and you should have done the usual light checks prior to taking for the mot
  11. Ford ka start up problem

    have the altenator checked or replace it with a second hand one. it may pay you to take off the and clean it with brake cleaner or wd40 the car in the video maynot be the same as your one but it will give you an idea what to look for.
  12. Front & rear bumper clips

    if the hole is too big then fit a wall plug on the new clip and then fit it to the car

  15. How much more fun is the St to Zetec-s

    i got my son the st-3 . its a brilliant car and so comfy and takes the bumps etc really good and is east to get in and out of. if i were you go for the st-2 or the better st3.they have more power that the st or s or st line. definately st-3 for me. dont buy new as they are about 20k new and a 2 year old as we got with under 20k on the clock was 12.5 k and its immaculate in the bdeep blue colour and get one with the sty pack added if you buying new you should get it for free so make sure its added . https://www.carwow.co.uk/blog/ford-fiesta-st-1-vs-st-2-vs-st-3-009
