  1. I had similar - the intake filter on the pump was completely blocked with gunk, the only thing that fixed it was pulling the pump out of the washer bottle and physically cleaning the intake filter. Fortunately, on an st-line, it is really easy to get to the washer pump - just remove the driver side front fog light and it's right there behind it, easy access.
  2. For what it's worth, I had the same: 2018 1.0 140 STlineX ~ 80K miles. Enigne light on, OBD says catalyst. Ford garage agree, changed catalyst under warranty, all fine now. Still no idea if the catalyst was actually damaged/faulty or if it was just a sensor issue.
  3. Yes, I thought it more likely to be a sensor/wiring issue rather than a failed catalyst at 4 years (even having done 80K miles). I did reset the fault and it came straight back.
  4. As a follow up to this, I took the car to a Ford service centre to be checked - they said it was a fault with the catalyst and they replaced the catalyst under (extended) warranty. I'm a bit dubious whether there was genuinely a fault with the catalyst, or if they just read the same catalyst error code as I did and swapped it out. All seems fine now though.
  5. Just had the check engine light come on, and OBD checker says P0420 which is an error from a catalyst sensor. OK to drive for ~100 miles tomorrow before I can get it in to a garage? And while we're at it, anyone else have experience of this on a Mk8?
  6. So the manual levelling control on the dashboard still works OK with the replaced units? Please could you post the correct part numbers for these led low beam units?
  7. My car also had PS4 from new and I changed the fronts at nearly 40K - absolutely no degradation in performance right to the end.
  8. That's a fantastic result, thanks for sharing. How does the levelling work?
  9. Please could you provide details about how you installed these?
  10. Does anyone have any experience of a Superchips (or similar) stage1 remap on the Mk8 140?
  11. Someone gave me a dent absolutely identical to the OP's - it's annoyingly noticeable because it's right on the body crease. I was thinking paintless dent removal if possible - would be interested to see how you get on. Anyone tried those DIY dent pulling kits?
  12. Thanks but I already do everything digitally and have for years. There are some circumstances when I fancy going retro and playing a physical disc (especially if it's something not available to stream, or my ripped copy isn't lossless.
  13. Hi, has anyone tried to retrofit the OEM glovebox cd player in a mk8 fiesta? You can buy the kit and it looks like it would be a doddle to mount the player, but in the kit description it says something along the lines of "an extra jumper cable may be required". So my question is: is it as simple as plugging in an existing cable that is already in place and everything just works? Can't be bothered if it's going to require dismantling dash bits to connect a new cable to the stereo. TIA
  14. The whole app is absolute garbage. For me the fuel report either never gave a result, or it was comically incorrect. And that's commuting 80 miles every day.
  15. Doh! In that case I've ordered the wrong one after all 🙄 I still don't remember mine having that spiral on it though.
