      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. I have a 2010 Ka Edge that has just failed its first ever MOT due to worn out brake pads. I have only done 12000 miles pottering to work and back 5 days a week so this seems really quite ridiculous to me. I don't think it's the way I drive as I had my old car for years with the same brakes and it passed its MOT first time every time. (an oollddd micra) Has any one else has this problem? Does it seem strange? A few people have also mentioned how bad the engine sounds in the cold. I has a loud rattle to it. The engine noise has also dipped and picked up again repeatedly in the past while i was scraping the windows, as if it was struggling to keep going. Evans Halshaw say they can find nothing wrong with it. Lastly, should all the console lights light up? Only the dials on the right light up at the moment and the garage have said that all the lights that should light up do. The heat and strength of the air are the ones that don't light up. I can't remember whether they used to or not and it seems really strange if they don't! Thanks for your help!
