      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. Hi folks, Have just had my offside front wheel bearing changed on my 2005 fiesta freestyle and have noticed that the abs light is still on.Was told by garage that it should go off itself but it is still on. Any advice before I take it back to the garage.Have looked on forums and seen that possible causes could be damaged sensor incorrect fitting of bearing.does the light need to be reset after bearing change ? Or should it go off itself and also what is the correct way of fitting the bearing?
  2. Sorry i forgot to add that there are no warning lights showing on the dash ,the engine management light is not on.
  3. Hi folks, forgive my ignorance but I am new to these forums.I have just bought my daughter a 1998 r reg ford fiesta 1.25.However I have now noticed that for some reason or another when I drive the car and want to push the revs in any gear the car seems to pick up speed but then seems to stop at a certain point after which it seems like the car is being held back almost like an inhibitor is in place.In first and second gear it is more noticeable but is still there in the other gears too. When driving I cant seem to push the revs over 3500/4000rpm ,however when in neutral i have no problems with the revs and can easily rev it upto its limits.The best way i can describe it is as if the is some sort of rev inhibitor in place which is stopping the car from picking up speed.Would appreciate feedback as to what may be wrong and how much to fix.Thank you.
