      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. Changing wallpaper on sync 2

    All you can do with Sync3 is change colours and themes but that requires Forscan and an ELM interface. You can try out different themes temporarily by entering the diagnostic mode. Turn sync3 on in FM radio mode then press & hold the cd eject and fast forward keys (or back key, can't 100% recall) then the diagnostic mode should start. You can find the theme settings quite easily but they only last until the system is turned off unless altered with Forscan. You can add a permanent diagnostics link in the main tab menu if required by switching on the relevant slider in the test menu. Sent from my SM-G965F (S9+)

  5. Things I Don't Like

    I don't suppose there is a dashcam fitted to the car? Metadata could be extracted as proof of time/date of footage plus images of the car's location (road signs, prominent features etc..)on the day in question? Sent from my SM-G965F (S9+)
  6. Things I Don't Like

    Sounds like a clear case of cloning. I would gather as much proof that the vehicle was nowhere near the location e.g, till receipts, work rosters, car park tickets, etc. Contact DVLA to advise them of a suspected cloning (they may issue a new registration in some cases) and the force that issued the nip plus your local force to ensure that the situation is documented. I would also recommend that you ask for any log numbers attached to your reports for ease of further reference. http://www.ukmotorists.com/motoring/what%20to%20do%20if%20your%20vehicle%20has%20been%20cloned.asp http://www.simplyregistrations.co.uk/blog/number-plate-theft-car-cloning-dont-be-a-victim/ Sent from my SM-G965F (S9+)
  7. 6000 CD Radio Code

    No problem fella. Sent from my SM-G965F (S9+)
  8. Car key broken

    A decent Auto Locksmith would be able to read the lock with a tool and cut a key to match but it may cost a few quid. Do you have key cover on your car insurance? Sent from my SM-G965F (S9+)
  9. 6000 CD Radio Code

    It is club policy to not share radio codes. There are plenty of ebay traders that can create M codes for a couple of pounds or search for M code generator programs on the web and apps for Android phones. Sent from my SM-G965F (S9+)
  10. Black front grill or not?

    The honeycomb grille does suit better imo. I wouldn't be able to stand my ST with a slat grille, it just wouldn't look right. Sent from my SM-G965F (S9+)

  12. Sync mouse mat?

    Sync2 euro spec iirc had climate on screen & voice control as standard. Sync3 euro spec doesn't but can easily be activated using Forscan. Sent from my SM-G965F (S9+)

  14. Things I Don't Like

    I bought a dishwasher and she keeps "forgetting" how to use it. I keep trying to "forget" how to use the washing machine but it hasn't worked yet [emoji57] Most of my washing is uniform that tends to get very muddy and stinks of wet dogs so fair do's I suppose. Sent from my SM-G965F (S9+)
  15. Things I Don't Like

    Nothing wrong with domestic chores. Only thing I hate doing is dusting. I do all the vacuuming due to having 2 dogs that shed hair all over the place. Wife hasn't washed a dish in years [emoji848]. Sent from my SM-G965F (S9+)
