      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. MK8 Fiesta Security

    I secured my OBD port with a steel safe from Protectavan. They'll never break into it and lets admit will you ever need access to it. I found that the Stoplock Pro to be easier to use than the disklok.
  2. Dash cam recommendations

    I have a Thinkware 770. Had no problems with it, remember though that it doesn't have a screen which is no bad thing, do you really need to watch on a screen what you can see through the windscreen. It's easy enough to connect your smart phone or tablet. The speed camera warnings work well and you have the added bonus if you use them of the collision warning and lane deviation system. Al in all I'd recommend it.
  3. Stolen or Fell off?

    mrg1403, pm me, I may be able to help. I have a 2016 ZS diffuser.
  4. Which fuse #'s for dashcam

    From experience, 13 IGNITION controlled, 21 for PERMANENT feed. I doubt whether the dash cam would draw that much current to drain a battery that quick that it would fail to start within a couple of weeks. It only take milliamps to work .
  5. Help needed

    Of course everyone is assuming that the wheels you have seen are the same offset as the Ford fitting for a Fiesta, Differnt cars have different offsets and PCD, (Pictch Centre Diameter).
  6. Wing mirror replacement

    Why do you need to remove the "door board" whatever that is, the rubber bung is readily accessible just by opening the door.
  7. Fiesta ZS Thefts

    A lot of cars are containerised and shipped out to Africa or eastern Europe.
  8. Short shifter for 2006 1.4tdci?

    Mountune do one for the ST, whether it's the same for a 1.4 tdci I don't know. You'll have to enquire. https://www.mountunestore.com/collections/mk6-fiesta-st/products/fiesta-b299-short-shift-arm
  9. Where is your dash cam located.

    I have a Thinkware f770. Points to note, the lens must be below the dotted part at the top of the screen, the MoT states that there must not be any obstruction within the sweep of the wipers but if you keep the lens out of the sweep when it rains you get the same effect as you do when you drive in the rain without wipers. You can bet that if it's raining then that's the time you need your camera most. If the MoT fails it I'd just fit a smaller wiper to that side. The Thinkware doesn't have a screen, you view,download or access the settings via a smartphone., so no chance of distractions. The f770 also has speed camera warnings.
  10. OBD Port Attempted Theft

    I agree with Kentish man, I have a Protecter van OBD port safe fitted to my car after mine was stolen last year. They are not cheap, £125 to buy £165 fitted, but then the financial loss on the value of your car compared to insurance payout is a major factor.
  11. Where is your dash cam located.

    It depends on what camera you have and where the lens is.
  12. Which tyres?

    Option 4. Swap front for rear and carry on. Most of the tyres you see advertised at tyre shops at £15 have 3mm or less.
  13. Hidden exhaust outlet

    Found a pic.
  14. Hidden exhaust outlet

    Carefully trim the diffuser to fit the tail pipe you fit. Check Halfords or Demon Tweeks.
