      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. Rear Badge Light

    You are better off with the surround than this. I replaced my surround version with this and within 2 months the paint bubbled up and peeled off. It's up to you but just letting you know what will happen with it.
  2. OK thanks guys. I will ask my mechanic about both options. Thanks
  3. Thanks for that. My mechanic has looked at it and can not work it out as being anything obvious. It's definitely something to do with the rear drivers side wheel. We tried bouncing the car up and down and the noise was not there but driving forward over anything and it makes the noise. This suggests that it's actually the forward motion instead of the up and down motion. I will have to try the upper bushes. Are they expensive? Do you know what right name for it is as upper bushes are coming up as rubber bits on eBay whereas I need to get the metal part that goes up into the wheel arch? Cheers
  4. Hi guys I have a very annoying problem that no one seems to be able to solve. Whenever I go over a bump, large or small, there is a knocking sound that sounds like it is coming from the rear of the car. I had my mechanic look at it and he thought it might be a loose heat shield. I have checked these and it is not. I had it looked at by Kwik fit and they relieved me of 70 quid for a rear link of some sort but it was not that. By the way, the knocking does not happen if I apply the brakes or have the handbrake almost fully up. My hand brake has been checked and is meant to be fine. Can anyone give me some suggestions? Another problem is a constant whizzing sound whenever I accelarate and the turbo kicks in. The pipes are fine from what I have been told and I have been told the turbo is fine and that some cars are just like that. I do not believe that as it was not making the whizzing sound before. Please help before I get fleeced!!!! Cheers
  5. Ice Upgrades

    Hi Hassan I use a nexus 7 in my car. I simply have a black Velcro strip above the stereo and another big on the back of the nexus. It works a dream and has never fallen off. Might be better than blu tac. Cheers
  6. Has Anyone Fitted These Drls?

    Hi Lenny Thanks for the information. I have a mk2. Taking on board what you have said, I will have to think about it. I will upload some pics soon. I have been following the forum for a couple of months since I got the car and have used some of the guides already. Such as fitting rear badge brake light, led interior and number plate upgrades etc. I like the strips on your motor but I think a halo ring would look cool if they replaced my fog lights. I just need to find something reliable that won't cost an arm or a leg! Cheers
  7. Hi guys This is my first post. I am thinking of getting these in white. Has anyone fitted these. What do you guys think? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/190646961430?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649 Cheers
