      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. Wear and tear at what miles does.....

    My cabby had 60 k on the clock when I had her, it has recaros in it and the seat had started to split when I had it. I am only slight and even I rubbed up against it getting in and out. I suppose it depends on what seats are in it, where abouts you sit ETC. Hope this helps H X

  6. escort diesel - non starter

    Hi, Have you changed the fuel pump or has it come off the engine that you have put it? Have you tried loosening the injectors to see how much fuel is coming through? If its got a different fuel pump you wont get the immobiliser to turn off. Have you used the manual pump to pump out the system of any air. You could also try towing the car to see if it will start. Sorry if you have tried all the above, but having recently done a engine on a pug we were stumped like you are when it would turn over but wouldnt run. We put the original fuel pump off the engine back on and hey presto much joy. H

  8. what I do

    Sadly not i'm a happily married lady have been for a long time. Can you turn your hand to re building a cabby engine, I have recently transplanted a pug 306 engine and am trying to persude said husband that we can do my cabby too. We are more than capable but he is concerned that it may not run again (i am sure it will, I think he is scared I may kill him as I love my car but this is not the case honest lol). I will let you know if I win and how we get on, then it will just be a respray and we will be done ha H xx

  10. Help leaking cabriolet roof

    Hi, Halfords do a good two part cleaner and protector its about £25 but well worth it. Where is it leaking, if its a small hole on a seam you may be able to get it repaired if not its a new roof im afraid. They tend to go just above the rear windows where the roof creases from opening/closing and also at the bottom of the window just above the boot. If you get a new roof protect it straight away as hot and cold weather takes its toll on our cabby rooves. Good Luck H

  13. Faulty suspension springs

    Hi, If you go back to around summer time on the Fusion section on this site there are pages and pages and pages were people have had the same problems with their Fushions with the year 2005. You might find it useful to have a look at what people had said, there was lots of talk of trading standards and watchdog etc and lots of lengthy arguments with Ford if memory serves correctly. H
