      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.

  3. Few Questions About Mk5 Fiesta

    It's when I've stopped moving and it's only in 1st gear and it seems to be an intermittent problem but thanks :)
  4. Few Questions About Mk5 Fiesta

    Hey guys, just got a few questions about my MK5 Fiesta (MK 4 facelift in other countries) 1) What size is the rear wiper? Mine was missing when I bought it so... Yeah. 2) It's the 1.3 endura-e engine, how many miles should I get to a full tank? 3) It's done 74.5k ish miles, when should I expect to need to replace the front wheel bearings and driveshafts? 4) The gear change into 1st is getting a little difficult/rough, is this normal at this mileage? 5) It doesn't have the boot lid spoiler as standard, how easy is it to fit one? (The standard ford unit, not some chavy wail tail) 6) The power steering has 2 wires going to it that are clearly visible. My dads never had a car with power steering so we aren't sure if it's the pump or sensor wires. One of the two wires has either been cut or has just fallen off, but everything works okay and there are no warning lights on the dash. Help? 7) I would like a rev counter and an engine temp guage, how hard is it to find/fit these? Thanks :)
  5. Howdy Y'all

    Howdy y'all, the names Aaron but y'all can call me skate. Just got my first car, 2001 Ford Fiesta Flight 1.3. Only had it 4 days and I love it already! I thought I'd join here to get to know some guys, some tips, common problems and other general help. Now to answer the commonly asked questions by my work colleagues: It's white, it's a 3 door, it cost me £625 to buy and £2444.46 to insure. I'm 20 years old and passed my test in December. So yeah that's me... Hi.
