      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.

    Fiesta Titanium 1.6TD
  1. Hello all, I've had my 59 Fiesta Titanium 1.6TD since November 2009 and have had a couple of annoying problems with it this winter: 1) My passenger side headlight keeps blowing. I think I've changed it 3 times so far this winter! I've taken it back to the dealer and they are adament there is nothing wrong with it. Has anyone else had a problem like this? I've been using Halford's own bulbs, so I'm going to try a different type this time. 2) I've had problems with the car misting up when the temperature drops below 5C. I've worked out this happens because I leave the aircon switched on all the time and when it turns itself off (when the outside temperature drops too low) all of the windows in the car will steam up and remain that way for ages - days in some cases when the temperature remains cold. I don't remember it being this bad at all last winter, however the dealer is convinced there is nothing wrong with it. Is this a common issue? I've taken to leaving the aircon switched off now and this solves the problem. 3) This might be linked to the above, but i've noticed that the interior of the car doesn't warm up very much in the colder weather. To get the car mildly warm, I have to set the climate control to 28C and even then it doesn't get hot! The blowers are working, but the temperature of the air coming out is mild at best. I was hoping someone more knowledgeable than me might be able to advise of possible causes of some of these problems? Thanks in advance. Richard
