      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. Thule Feet Dont Fit 06 S Max

    For anyone browsing this for reference the photographs do show the correct fittings (Thule 3030) for an S-Max 2006-2011. The tall hard plastic pieces shown partly inserted into the roof recesses then have hard rubber feet surrounding them as part of the kit. This hard rubber should stand just off the paintwork to avoid marks. Looks odd but works. I have found that the Ford Galaxy (2006-) kit also works but ends up bolting straight into the roof recesses and the rubber pads sit on the roof.

    With regard to the key locking but not unlocking: It might be that he door lock has been replaced and uses a different key. This model uses the Tibbes type key - all Tibbes keys will perform the lock function on any similarly equipped car but not the unlock. Just a thought! As the previous poster said - the heater could well be the electronic valve which is prone to seizing on this model Fiesta. Ka's and Transits use the same one. I've replaced them with pattern ones from Ebay.
