  8. St Jack

    Hi All When I bought my ST2 it was a pre built car and did not come with a spare wheel I bought a 15" rim/tyre but didn't get round to buying a jack/brace etc. I have just bought a spare wheel kit from fordpartsuk. The jack supplied is a scissor jack but jacks for sale on ebay which say fit models from 2008 to 2014 all appear to be the y shaped type. Can anyone with an ST confirm what sort of jack they have. I also have the spare steel 15" rim for sale if anyones interested cost £41.81

    My car didn't have the loom, I had to order it separately. Hope your solution works
  10. Ids

    I did the retrofit Bluetooth mod in my 2010 zetec s there is a separate loom which connects to the Bluetooth main loom by the base of the a pillar and is routed up the a pillar and across the headlining. I bought the plastic headlining trim which houses the mic. You have to cut out the headlining to fit

    Hi All Last evening I washed the car and for the first time since I bought it 3 months ago I wiped over the edge of the rear valance inside the passenger wheel arch. a couple of penny size white patches appeared where the paint flaked off the plastic. Has anyone else seen this happen I have contacted the ford dealer and they want to inspect it

  14. Privacy Glass

    I bought a used zs tdci from tc Harrison. after a couple of weeks I noticed that the rear screen and one rear window were privacy glass and the other rear window was a normal tint (Don't know how I missed it) I rang them up and they arranged to have it changed. They reckoned it may have been built like it The windows are bonded in so they had it for a few hours while the adhesive went off properly I would insist on replacing the glass

  16. St Spare

    Hi all I have an st2 which I bought from stock and didn't come with a spare. If I had a make to order car I would definitely gone for a spare wheel. I have picked up a spacesaver off ebay for £13.50 brand new, Anyone know if the polystyrene insert with the jack etc. is different from a 14 inch spare to a 15 inch. I need to pick up one of these now but I want to get one which is the same as an original fitment
  17. Getting An St

    Hi all Having swapped my Focus ST 3 years ago for an economical Zetec S 1.6 TDCi fiesta I have decided to go for a new ST. Choice between a Molten Orange with streetpack and convienience pack or a blue with just streetpack. £2/month difference in the price over 4 years. Just don't know which one to have. I test drove an orange yesterday and it was dirty and looked really dull although the new one in the showroom sparkled. The dealer Is bringing in a blue one tomorrow for me to see before I decide. What does anyone else think ps I got an insurance quote on a multicar policy and it was £165 quid - £50 cheaper than my diesel
  18. Help Body Kit Inbound

    Hi I fitted skirts to my zs tdci as I didn't have them from the factory. I had them painted by a local body shop. There were two clips which push fitted into holes in the underside (you have to remove the two seals from the holes) There were also about four push in clips either side which fit into the sill holes on models which have them factory fitted (you can ignore these as you wont have the holes). I then bought some automotive grade double sided sticky about 5mm wide and stuck this on the mating faces of the skirts at the top. The holes on the underside of the skirts slid onto the fittings you push into the underside. I then pulled a little of the backing tape off the double sided so you can push the skirt to the car and working from the middle then pull the backing off and push. Then fit the end caps. I never had any issues with them coming away and they were on for three years when I px it.
  19. Tank Size

    Hi All Whats the fuel tank capacity in an ST I thought that all petrol models was 42 litres but I managed to get 45.27 litres in mine when I filled it up yesterday
  20. Tank Size

    Hi Chris Thanks for that that sounds like ive got the 48 litre tank then
  21. Tank Size

    Update When I got to the garage the remaining miles was showing 0. Managed to get 48.38 litres (10.66 gallons) in trip was reading 423 miles (39.68 mpg) avg mpg reading was 40.5 I think 6.38 litres over tank capacity is a lot so maybe pumps are dispensing incorrectly. Think I will try a gallon in a petrol can and measure it in the wifes cooking jug!!
  22. Your right been away both weekends since ive had it
  23. Tank Size

    I think I will try a different garage next time see what the difference is. The gauge was saying about 29 miles left when I filled it up
