      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. Air Filter Removal

    Dead easy mate, all you need to do is un do the clip that secures the air filter housing to the throttle body (using socket or screw driver). And prise it out of the grommets that hold it in place, there's two at the back ( just above the gear box) and one on the slam panel. Just lift the air filter housing out......Job done.
  2. Paid Members Privalages

    Do paid members get a membership card and does it entitle you to insurance discounts? Many thanks Darren
  3. Orion Mk2 Clutch Cable

    You don't say where you are, You might get some help if you put you location . The job it's self isn't to difficult ( should take no more than an hour ).
  4. Sussex / Surrey And Kent Meet

    Anyone interested in a meet in Sussex / Surrey and Kent meet in pub car park for a chat / drink? If there is enough interest i will sort out a venue, date and time ( sat or sun ). :D
  5. Sussex / Surrey And Kent Meet

  6. Fiesta Metal - Stolen

    I wish you luck & hope your claim goes smoothly and quickly.
  7. Fiesta Metal - Stolen

    I can't say to much on here but the method stated is the same method that was used to bypass ford alarms back in the 80's / 90's. Ford REALLY have not moved on or learnt anything car security since then, I think this is truly shocking. By now ford should be using a system were the code generated by the security system / key changes each time the key / entry method is used thus making it impossible to clone. Most other car manufacturers are now using this technology.
  8. Floor Pan Wash

    I finally got underneath my car today to wash the floor pan and chassis........I know i'm sad but at least its clean and salt free!!
  9. Floor Pan Wash

    Lol.......I can't help it i'm obsessed with cleaning my car :D
  10. Sussex / Surrey And Kent Meet

    Sorry to hear that, I totally sympathise with you ( i lost my dad to cancer in 2007 ). Let me know when you are ready....( no rush ). And i will organise something.
  11. I had to recover a crashed car on Saturday, The crash was caused by a road which became very greasy when it rained after a long dry spell . It pays to take extra care when driving on wet roads ( particularly after along dry spell ). The rain mixes with spilt diesel etc & turns bends / roundabouts into ice rinks.
  12. Your welcome, Give mass airflow meter a very gentle clean using carb cleaner. DO NOT put any pressure on the thin wire that runs across it or it will snap.
  13. It's only dangerous if it leaks fluid. It may get better with time.
  14. Wet Roads After A Long Dry Spell

    Its those sort of people that cause a major accident & walk away without a scratch, And innocent party end up in hospital.
  15. Loll........No problem :D
  16. In theory yes it should. I still think a genuine ford coil pack is the best way forward mate. let me know how you get on.
  17. You can get insulated pliers to hold the ht leads with the engine running, I am a fully qualified mechanic but without seeing the car it's difficult to make an accurate diagnosis. But if it was me i would purchase a genuine ford coil pack as pattern / reproduction stuff can a bit iffy on quality.
  18. Cleaned and waxed the whole of the underside of the ka yesterday.
  19. Floor Pan Wash

    Cleaned and waxed the whole underside of the ka yesterday.
  20. Try the coolant temp sensor or clean the maf ( mass airflow meter ).
  21. Have you checked the wiring loom & connectors that go to the coil pack? As it sounds like a wiring fault.
  22. Floor Pan Wash

    No i actually got underneath and scrubbed it with a sponge / cloth etc.
  23. Sussex / Surrey And Kent Meet

    I'm in Horsham, So i can arrange something soon.
  24. Today i modified the air filter housing on my 2004 ka and what a difference it's made, No drilling was involved and looks standard from outside. K&N panel filter next. Not bad for 10 mins work.
