      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. Cost of cambelt fitted?

    you have not told us what engine you have, i have a 1.25 zetec which i had the belt done in feb 09,make sure you get a timing belt kit fitted as it replaces the tensioners which can collapse if not replaced , i paid £110 at my local indy inc a new alternator belt,ford wanted £240 just for belt replacment

  5. Xenon Bulbs - Are they worth it?

    i have looked into this a couple of times , what i have found is the vehicle must have auto levelling headlights (sensors on the suspension) and washers on the headlights , as for the law they are illegal in the uk but legal in the eu as were part of the eu i dont see how you cant use them ,plus i have read lots of posts on different forums that state they drive around without a problem and always pass the mot ,you will be amazed at the differance in light with them i myself if i had the money would fit them , were are you getting them from , keep us updated if you fit them

  9. fiesta mirrors

    i really need members help , i have owned my fiesta (mk4 1999) approx 5years ,constantly my ns wing mirror is knocked/kicked off by passing morons (at least 10 occassions) , 99% of the cars in the street it has happened to frequently, early hours of wednesday (5.40 am) i was woken up by a bang and then a screaming male voice i jumped up and looked out the window to see a lad of about 25 really drunk screaming obcenities in to the air about his girlfriend as he ran away,my wing mirror was hanging by its adjuster cables. i went out to clip it back on but found a large piece of the internal part of the mirror broken ,the little adj knob inside was on the floormat , i am really at the end of my tether now and have even thought of getting rid of the car as i am on edge all the time waiting for it to happen again, i have had the mirrors folded in but it exposed the cables and they were pulled out , i need to know is there any proper folding mirrors from other fords focus/mondeo etc i can replace mine with someone please give me some ideas thanks mark
  10. mk4 fiesta headlights

    first post so go easy , i own a 1999 fiesta i have recently started having to use the motorway at night and need to know is there any way of making the headlights brighter (the headlights are as bright as several fiestas in my area), the headlight glass is really clean inside and out , including the reflective areas , it just seems the standard headlight bulbs are not up to much when driving on unlit motorways ,i dont want to add extra lights to the front ,any ideas or advice would be great :)
