      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. Newbie Questions

    Hi, I'm new to the site. Due to a faulty bonnet cable (seems to be standard issue on the S-Max!) my battery was disconnected so I now need the radio code. I have seen the helpful links to decoding sites but please could someone let me know how to access the serial code on the radio? I have a 2007 S-Max and the radio is a 6000 CD. Thanks very much. (Having spent £192 on the bonnet cable and £150 on the boot latch which failed on the day we were going on holiday, I can't bring myself to pay the local garage £25 just for the stupid radio code!)
  2. Problems, Problems, Problems...

    It's such a shame isn't it - I've got a 2007 S-Max and although it's great to drive, the build quality really doesn't shape up to the VW's I've had previously. I've had to have a new boot latch (man at garage told me it was my fault because "new mums always slam the boot too hard..." and so wouldn't claim on the warranty) and last week, spent £192 on resolving the bonnet cable problem (which stops the bonnet from closing, resulting in a bikechain and padlock repair job) that many seem to have suffered. The handbrake's fallen to pieces and the front parking sensors are useless! VW next time I think (at least I don't have to do 1,000 miles a week - nightmare to have an unreliable car)!
