  1. Can You Recemend A Good Glass Cleaner

    Autoglym Car Glass Polish is even better especially for grease on the windscreen It takes more work though but gets the glass realy clean
  2. 17" Tyre Size

    All car speedos read a bit high (about the same as yours)
  3. Can anyone recommend replacement front Wiper Blades for a Mk 7 thatr are at least as good as the origional ones. The ones on now are starting to get a bit worn & i haven't seen anywhere that sells replacement rubbers.
  4. Mudflaps For A Fiesta Zetec S Mk7

    The Ford ones fit ok & are about £26 for the rear ones. Just 2 plastic plugs & two metal clips are used to fit them Check a thread about this last week
  5. Fiesta Mk7 Mudflaps ?

    I got some last night for that price from Jennings In Stockton
  6. Fiesta Mk7 Mudflaps ?

    As far as I know they should all stock them Fitting looks very easy, & as far as I know the wheels can stay on. Just clean the area, pop a couple of plastic plugs out, line up the mudflaps, push a couple of plasic retainers in, push on a couple of metal clips. Thats it
  7. Fiesta Mk7 Mudflaps ?

    I just checked & they are £25.62 from my local Ford dealer which sounds like a good deal. I think they are the same for 3 & 5 door versions
  8. Can anyone help me as I want to get at the back of my Mk7 Fiesta rear light cluster. I need to do this so I can access the connector as I am fitting parking sensors & need to get a power supply. I have seen where people say pull away the carpet, but how & where to do that without causing damage.
  9. Thanks very much for that, just what i needed to know :)
  10. My wife has just got a 2009 Fiesta Zetec 1.4 in excellent condition with 7000 miles on the clock (genuine) & has just been serviced by the local Ford main dealer. If you are going along & push the throttle down a little bit it accelerates away quite well. If you then put the throttle down more it does not seem to accelerator very much faster, but if you ease of the pedal back a bit then it seems to pick up. It does not seem to matter if you are doing say 2000 rpm or 4000 rpm. It just seems not quite right to me, it gets up to speed ok, but does not have the urge i would have expected for the 1.4. it is doing around 40 mpg on average journeys. Does anyone have any comments or suggestions as to what to check, or this normal.
  11. Aftermarket Parking Sensor Systems

    Could you tell me where you got the kit from, as it sounds like a good deal.
  12. Does anyone know if the engine in the engine in the current Mk7 1.4 petrol Fiesta is the same as the Mk 6 Also, does it have the same sensors ie MAF, throttle, lambda etc
  13. Thanks for that, unfortunatly it does not go into any detail regarding the sensors etc.
  14. Fiesta Zetec 1.4 Feels A Bit Flat

    Jamie, thanks for that. When you say "Software dates" do you mean by the dealer as it has just been serviced & i would have expected them to do that during the service
  15. Fiesta Zetec 1.4 Feels A Bit Flat

    Thanks for that, it's what I was expecting. It just seems as though it needs a small adjustment or something to put it right but what to do. Any suggestions anyone please.
  16. Sat Navs

    I use the new Copilot Live Premium on my Iphone & that works very well, my wife uses the Garmin 255WT which I think is great, easy to use & update if needed ;-)
  17. On a 2009 Fiesta Zetec, is there a way to set the doors to auto lock, either when you drive off, or get to say 10mph I know it's standard on a lot of cars these days
  18. Just got a 2009 Fiesta 1.4 Zetec that has a space saver spare wheel. Does anyone know what the tyre pressure should be as I have looked in the manual & it does not say
  19. Thanks for that, I will check it out tonight
  20. Ok, thanks for that info, are the guides on this forum or outside.
  21. Fiesta Space Saver Tyre Pressure

    You could be correct I just wanted to make sure.
  22. Fiesta Space Saver Tyre Pressure

    Anyone please
  23. My wife has just got a 2009 1.4 Fiesta Zetec. Roughly what sort of mileage should she expect to out of a set of tyres when driveing normally ie no wheel spining etc but not crawling along.
  24. That looks so good (stunning), an inspiration to any one thinking of doing their own car I was wondering, is the Mondeo sunglasses holder an easy swop or is do you have to do any mod to fit it
