    MK8 Turning off Traffic Announcements

    Am I right in saying that when a TA is playing, the 2 on screen options of Cancel and Close both do the same thing? Ie they both stop the current announcement and leave TA turned on? I would have thought that one of them is supposed to turn TA off completely. ..?

    Impressive MK8 1.0 EcoBoost 140 MPG

    See my post above. Mine does it regular as clockwork from a trip reset - at 235 miles driven the mpg drops off a cliff, then at 280 miles driven instantly goes back up about 8mpg.

    Impressive MK8 1.0 EcoBoost 140 MPG

    I find that if you fill up and reset the trip data, it can very easily report an unrealistically high mpg for the first 200 miles, it then nose-dives to unrealistically low reported mpg for about 100miles, before suddenly flipping back to a realistic midpoint which is usually a couple of mpg above the real value I am calculating at fill-up. In eco mode on long steady trips it will often report up to 60mpg at the start, but I've never got above a calculated 52mpg. Typically it's about 48mpg in eco.

    MK8 Door Panel Squeak

    Great, thank you. So in what way was your liner not fixed properly? Not fully located or misaligned or something else?

    That's great info on the roof thanks! I have seen those velcro blocks and I reckon that is exactly the same problem I am having - will investigate later. Do you just pull the liner down from the roof, or is there any special technique?

    Ford Sync and Spotify

    I know, it's really annoying - this feature was a key selling point of the car for me.

    Ford Sync and Spotify

    Found exactly the same thing on sync 3 - I guess the old spotify version stops allowing connection if it's not been updated for a certain length of time. Try removing and reinstalling the old version of spotify? ?

    Great, thanks both!

    Mk8 Forscan chat

    Sounds interesting. I'm not familiar with Forscan at all - could somebody explain what equipment is required and what the method is for making changes such as those described above? Thanks

    MK8 Door Panel Squeak

    Good idea. My noise sounds more like it is coming from the rear drivers side of the roof and I can recreate it if I push up on the headlining in this area.

    I already tried lubricating the roof seals and it made no difference. My noise sounds like 2 hard surfaces clicking creaking against eachother rather than glass on rubber

    Mk8 Hill start assist

    I was just thinking that mine never seems to actuate - not checked to see if it's turned itself off...

    Which spare wheel clamp for mk8?

    Thanks for that. I wonder if my old spare wheel is actually a slightly different design or off set.

    Which spare wheel clamp for mk8?

    For future reference: It looks like more parts for the mk8 were added to the Fordparts site, here is the link for the spare wheel kit, which also helpfully gives a breakdown of each part: https://www.fordpartsuk.com/ford-fiesta-14-spare-wheel-kit-plus-tyre-2017-on-3733 I got the bits I wanted and the bolt etc all fits fine. Strangely, when the foam tool holder is on the top of my wheel, the kit is slightly higher than the wheel well so the boot floor doesn't quite fit flush - is this the case with the factory supplied kit?

    I've also got an issue with the panoramic roof - was silent for a couple of thousand miles, now creaks a lot with any body flex. Sometimes worse than others depending on temperature, also stops if roof fully open. To me it sounds like the frame of the glass roof on the metal of the body at the rear of the moving section. New thread for roof noises?
