    Mk7 1.6 Tdci Weeping Noise

    I might have asked this a long time ago but hey ho. When I first got my car it would only make the weeping noise when you turn the engine of after a long journey. Well in a lazy moment yesterday I drive the 500yds to the shop and it did the same weeping noise that was the first time the car had moved all day. So my question is what the heck is the weeping noise and is it bad that it now does it after a short journey

    Side Skirt End Caps

    For those who have been unfortunate enough to have them fall off triple r composites now do an exact copy of them might be old news but thought I'd share it anyway they also do a few other bits for the fiesta

    Fiesta Zs Cold/rev Engine Noise Problem

    ive just converted to a petrol zs from a diesel and noticed today mine sounds the same but have only noticed it when the car is cold so maybe it just needs time to circulate the oil . going to get it checked next week as I have a courtesy car for now.

    Cruise Control Activation Mk 7.5

    I got Inath to retrofit and activate it on my mk7 I use it all the time. It did look a pain in the backside to fit though and I know he's had plenty of practice fitting them to

    Centre Consol Arm Rest

    The armrest is possible a company called armster make them for the fiesta from what I remember they screw into the rear cup holder. As for the illuminated cup holders I don't see why not but won't be cheap to buy

    New Fiesta 1.6 Tdci Owner

    As above as long as you give it a good run sort of 20 mins half hour at motorway speeds is more than enough for the car to do a regen cycle on the dpf. I also have a 1.6 tdci the turbo lag is just something you put up with in the beginning until you adapt to it or floor it so it's always on boost like me :). The ecu could be anything mine was recalibrated just for 17" rims. So could be anything

    Engine Cover - Should There Be One?

    It is just hit and miss whether you get one mine a 11 tdci zs and has one. It seems to be that more common for deisels to have a cover

    Panel Filter

    As above I've had mine in 2 years now and all I've noticed is that the throttle response is a bit better the turbo lag is less and it seems to catch a lot more crud than the old paper one so you have to keep an eye on it.
