      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. The centre display (the one with the Odometer/messages) on my recently purchased s/h S-Max sometimes gets vertical streaks which seem to disappear as the car warms up. One particularly cold morning it was completely blank for a while. Does it need replacement and if so is this a possible DIY job? Thanks, Lincoln
  2. Streaky/blank Central Display

    Thanks for the above. I have Autoguard warranty (supplied when I bought it for 1 year) but wouldn't mind having a go myself if it's relatively easy because if it's just a bad connector/dry joint on pcb I'd rather try and resolder than use up what would probably be a few hundred pounds worth of replacement work. However a (non-Ford) garage told me the dash panel can be coded and may fail to work if removed and replaced. Can I assume he was being over-cautious and that this isn't the case?
  3. Where Is Rear Fusebox!

    I'm getting the 'Bonnet Open' message when it isn't and from a bit of research realise I may have to pull the alarm horn fuse soon only I can't find the fusebox. The manual doesn't show the location and opening panels in the boot has so far not helped. Where is it please? Thanks. Lincoln
  4. Streaky/blank Central Display

    Sounds like the dash needs to come off. Sorry to sound ignorant but where do I go to find out how to do that? Is there a good aftermarket service manual?
  5. I have a blown speaker on my recently purchased s/h S-Max It's in the nearside rear door. The first question is, how easy is the replacement? Getting door panels off previous VWs etc hasn't filled me with enthusiasm for the job. The second question is where do I go to get a decent one, hopefully an upgrade to the standard unit? I notice people selling them on ebay but they seem to use a retrofit 'adaptor pod'. Is this the way to go or can I do better for the £40 with a Ford part? Thanks, Lincoln
