      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. Was suggested as boot release not working to check the fuse. Forgive my ignorance but where would I find it. Have checked fuse box but seems to be yr normal fuses in there. Any help would be appreciated.
  2. Tappets Fiesta 2001

    Thanks for info will buy Haynes manual and have a read up before I start playing around with engine. Gotta be cheaper than going o a garage.
  3. Have just read that tappets on my fiesta need adjusting fairly often. As a complete novice can I do them myself or is it best to get a mechanic to do it. Any help would be much appreciated.
  4. Cheers for help much appreciated
  5. Thanks for that, have read that it could be solenoid. Do you know if easy to replace.
  6. My fiesta doesn't have remote central locking. Boot opens with key but nothing happens when boot release button is pressed. The button aluminates when lights are on so guessing it has power. Was wondering if it may be the switch itself just finding it hard to diagnose
  7. Am such a numpty. Took cover off in side boot lid and found it does have boot release fitted but not sure where to start as far as fixing it. Anyone have any ideas ??
  8. Just bought a 2001 fiesta free style and it has a boot release button which doesn't work. Have checked and the button is wired in but it's not connected anywhere to the boot. Did it come as standard or maybe someone started to fit it and gave up. Any help on this would be much appreciated.
