      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 1.25 lx
  1. Mot Fail Questions

    Hi all, took my trusty little fiesta in for its mot and it failed on 5 things, 2 excessive corrosion areas'; nearside outer rear (sill) suspension component mounting and offside inner front(floor) seat belt anchorage(rotten and rusted through presumably?), 1 front brake pad less than minimum and nearside rear parking brake recording little or no effort( i think my mate didn't bleed the brakes when he fitted the new shoes, i saw fluid squirt out when he pushed the piston in). so does "excessive corrosion" mean rotted through or can be scrubbed the rust off and painted over? ATB Andy

    only the zetec mk4 fiesta started off in the 1.25lx spec,earlier fiesta's were 1.0,1.1,1.3 depending on the mk.also the mk4 zetec powered models have ''zetec s'' on the engine cover and they have an oval rad grill the haynes manual you need is the green covered manual
  14. fiesta heater problem

    did you test the hcv by hooking it up to the power to see if the solenoid works properly? the solenoids can fail in either blowing hot or cold,a fully working solenoid will click open and closed,a bad 1 won't.
