      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.

  2. Hi to all the smaxers

    No, not Mr B here, just Landman I bear no resemblance to the Mr B that you refer to. Honest. That must be my twin.
  3. Warning Lights on S-Max

    Did you get this sorted? The S-Max does have a very small problem with some ABS modules. Rgds, Landman
  4. Aftermarket Stereo Questions

    Yes you can. There are a number of members at the S-Max Owners Club who have done this. Some needed new surrounds, but fairly straight forward. You cannot buy a product yet that allows you to integrate in to the steering wheel controls. The only way, currently, of achieving this is to order a new S-Max with the USB slot in the glovebox.

  5. Red i warning light

    The red "i" light should be on when the car is locked to tell you that the alarm is activated. HTH Landman
  6. s max heater

    Hi there, How old is the car? Ford recommend that you have the air con system "cleaned" once a year. My dealer charged me £25 to do it. You can get products from Halfords & "bomb" the system yourself. HTH Landman
  7. Sterio Unit Removal

    Did you manage to get the unit out? the 6000 and the 6006 are a real pain to remove. You do need 4 "keys" as you might have already found out. I changed my 6006 to a Sony 6-stack in my 1st S-Max. No need to remove any trim to do this. Rgds, Landman
  8. Drivers door collects water

    My guess is that some of the protective gunk they squirt in during build is blocking a hole somewhere, or is just sitting in an unusual way that directs the water in another direction. I would not worry too much. How's the car otherwise? Landman
  9. Windows

    Hi MontyMagic, Have you checked for any foreign objects in the door rubbers? The S-Max system is designed to have an anti-trap function. If the window senses a restriction of some kind it will reverse itself. If that's all clear then you do have a problem with the motor. HTH Landman
  10. Hi to all the smaxers

    Blimey! Look what happened while I was absent last night. I like Zozzr's use of the word emigré ;)

    Evening all, Owned & driven a variety of Fords over the years but currently owning a 2.5T powered S-Max. It's my second S-Max, previously I owned a 2.0 TDCi which was remapped to 175 bhp, the same as the new 2.2 TDCi engine. Happy to help anyone with questions on the S-Max as I've now driven one since September 2006 Be in touch Landman
