      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.

  3. Hi guys and girls got a quick question for you all. my lovely old car (more old then lovely lol) hates being driven when its cold, It starts fine and stays running but if you try and drive it has no power and tryes to die so for the first 5 or 10 mins it drives like a bag of spuds but when the engine has warmed up its off like a rocket we go lol maybe its just like me and hates getting up in the moring, but it does it when its been driven then sat all day so it cant be that. Any ideas why it hates being being driven when its cold , was thinking it could be the mixture or could it be something to do with air as it doesnt have the original air filter its got a K&N cone maybe something just needs a tweek ( probabily a good service would help) . It revs fine but just wont pull untill its warmed up and also on a couple of ocasions traving ( i do quite a lot of moterway) if you hit traffic or roadworks so have to sit at 30 from doing an hour at 70 it trys to cut out / do that same thing it does when its cold. its never stoped or stalled though. If anyone has any ideas would be greatful if you could let me know Cheers :)

  7. Hi Hope everyone’s well, just a quick question. I had my car broken into last week by some friendly helpful members of society ( the F###ers lol ) and so have just managed to get hold of a new / second-hand window and was wondering if anyone had any useful tips on replacing it. My cars an XR3 mark 4 Convertible with electric windows and it’s the passenger door main window that got smashed. The new window has the brackets on it. Do I need to take the rubber seal out the top of the door or undo any bolts in the door to get it on its runners? If anyone has any tips I would be more then grateful for your advice. Thanks
