      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. Fiesta Mk4 14" Wheel Size

    Cheers mate! I was thinking of going for something a bit different as opposed to fiesta alloys, quite tempted to try and make some 13x7 Capri wheels work..
  3. Fiesta Mk4 14" Wheel Size

    I'm looking at replacing my standard steel wheels with alloys, just wondering what the width and offset is on the original steel wheels fitted to mk4 fiestas? I have checked for stamps or anything but I couldn't find any markings:/ Also, what wheels have you fitted to your fiestas?
  4. 1998 Fiesta 1.4 Knocking

    Ah right, I'll have a look at those, see if I can free them up a bit:)
  5. 1998 Fiesta 1.4 Knocking

    Nice one, I'll check the anti roll bar bushes for any deterioration or excessive wear. How do I go about checking the drop links? Just check for any play? Thanks!
  6. 1998 Fiesta 1.4 Knocking

    No ideas yet? I jacked it up and removed the front wheels today to see if there was anything obviously loose and there isn't which is vaguely reassuring. I'll take it to the garage next week and see if they have any ideas, hopefully something I can fix myself.
  7. 1998 Fiesta 1.4 Knocking

    Just brought myself a 1998 fiesta 1.4 and found it has quite a loud knocking, particularly noticeable when I go over a bump in the road. Any ideas? I've checked wheel bearings and they seem fine. The knocking is almost certainly coming from the front of the car. Thanks for your help!
  8. Evening All!

    Thanks everyone! 50 cars?!? That's impressive, how'd you manage that?
  9. Evening All!

    Here's hoping ford ownership will be as trouble free for me too:)
  10. Evening All!

    Thanks! Nope this is my first, started out with a polo a year ago and now fancied a change. My dad's had several mondeo's and I figure I can't really go wrong.
  11. Evening All!

    So I've just brought myself a 1998 Ford Fiesta 1.4 Ghia. It's a great little car but not in as good condition as I first thought:/ I'm afraid i already have lots of problems i need help sorting but perhaps I can help all of you with some things too. Frankie.
