      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.

  2. 2017 Fiesta deal advice

    Hi, been offered a deal on the new Fiesta. Just wondered if anyone on here has links or contact details for recommended dealers who may be able to improve offer? Or perhaps dealers view this forum and may PM me ;) Apologies if posted in wrong thread
  3. Noise When Pulling Away

    TSB would be good as I have next service in 1,000 miles so could support my complaint with the appropriate documentation. Mine has done it for the last 10k miles.
  4. Noise When Pulling Away

    I have this on my 1.6 tdci. Has done it now for approx. 6months. Dealer reckoned it was hill hold and fobbed me off saying that they did a 'software update'. Funny thing is, it happens whether you are uphill, downhill or on the flat ! I'm certain it is the clutch and it seems to occur more when the car is nicely warmed up after a run for eg. It sounds like clutch squeal on mine but without the slipping, you still have good drive.
  5. Mk 3 Boot Light

    Hi Colin Never bothered, got used to it in the end.
  6. Dpf Removal

    Don't do it. http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/car-news/consumer-news/84818/mot-test-fail-dpf-removal
  7. I'm not too bothered either but just noticed it when car was defrosting the other day. Thought it might have been after work by Ford dealer.
  8. Well that post wasn't particularly helpful as the DRL's on the Titanium X are factory fitted not cheap Chinese imitations. The rest of the bulbs are all the factory originals too !!
  9. Lights still not 100%. DRL's now seem to flicker quite noticeably when car first started. Just wondered if this was down to the cold weather with the front and rear screens on and the heater on full demist. Anyone else's do this or it is a trip back to the dealers ?
  10. Perhaps it has shown up on mine before yours Chris because I'm now on 40,000 miles. Do I use my car more than yours so the headlights have seen more use ??
  11. Bulbs run too hot / draw too much current which damages the wiring perhaps ?
  12. Car back from dealers with fully functioning headlights once more :)
  13. Been and booked car in for Friday. Seen Technical Bulletin and it does involve replacing the headlight bulbs and headlight connectors / wiring.
  14. Mine is a July 2011 build for information.
  15. Probably won't issue a recall as it isn't a safety issue (unless car catches fire)
