      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. Sudden Gearbox Failure. How?!

    It should have been
  2. Sudden Gearbox Failure. How?!

    The clutch height will settle down pretty quickly. Stiff gearbox, not so sure, sounds like old oil. Does it get easier after driving for a little while?
  3. 7750 so far, first service coming up. No engine issues, reverse gear is often on holiday but got a scuffing sound when on full lock that needs looking into
  4. 2008 1.25 mpg

    40mpg is possible, i think my personal best was around 43mpg, used to get it on a 13 mile commute but it takes saint like patience and a self imposed speed limit of 60mph
  5. Was planning on keeping my st-line for a few years but this ST is making me change my mind, hurry up end of finance
  6. Warranty coverage

    That's spot on, couldn't work out how long a gearbox would be covered for, not that it's failed yet
  7. Warranty coverage

    Hi, been trying to see what is covered and for how long by the standard Ford warranty. I've come up with nothing, can anyone help out?
  8. MK7.5 Fiesta ST-Line - Subtle Mods!

    I've got a 108 for getting to work, half the power at 68hp from the same size engine as my fez. Keeptrying to pull out to overtake and then always think nah. Trick is keeping it moving at speed like a go kart but the roll and skinny tyres make for superb understeer
  9. MK7.5 Fiesta ST-Line - Subtle Mods!

    Worth doing a comparison of engine power in KW Vs speaker output in KW?
  10. Air Filter Box Intake

    Think the technical term would be airbox, induction or air intake
  11. Sprayed mine a gloss black with a rattle can. Couple of coats of primer and paint and it looks good apart from where I've scuffed it at a later date
  12. Which automatic Fiesta to buy?

    There's a lot of reports of problems with the clutch on automatics for fiestas
  13. Pothole Damage

    Yeah I checked the wheel, fortunately no damage to it, didn't get a chance to the check the tyre before it got too dark. Will have to arrange a trip back to it soon

  15. Pothole Damage

    Anyone know if you can claim for damages caused by potholes? And if so, how? I lost my front tyre to one yesterday which needed a £101 replacement. The tyres were only 5800 miles old with the tyre immediately deflating after the hit.
