      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. Space Saver Wheels

    Cheers everyone, don't want to invalidate my insurance, so I've left everything as it was at the time of the accident. The assessor's been out and told me that it's a write off, and so I've been in contact with insurance case handlers, who have confirmed I can keep the brand new tyres I brought at the weekend, so I need to get that arranged now.
  2. Space Saver Wheels

    Thanks for the responses already. Just checking again, can I put another size wheel on instead of the 17 inch alloys I have?
  3. Space Saver Wheels

    Anyone, I've been involved in an accident this morning and I've got to arrange for someone to come out and assess the damage. Really mad, as I probably will be told it will be a write off. Driver's door is damaged, the sill and maybe the strut. I put 2 new tyres on the front at a cost of £250, but I want to keep my alloys, as you'd expect. As my alloys are 17 inch, I basically need to know if I can put 4 space saver wheels on my car and if I can even use 14, 15 or 16 inch space savers so the loss assessors don't profit at my expense. Also, can I use any 5 stud space saver wheel. Thanks in advance.
  4. Possessed Car - Comes To Life When Turned Off

    Just been reading the thread, and I've had exactly the same thing happen to me tonight. Due to the wet weather, I've driven through some flooded roads. My apologies for sounding slightly thick, but what exactly do I need to do to the gem module? What is a gem module? And how do you change them?
