    Mk8 gearchange

    I sometimes get quite a loud clonk when going in to or out of 2nd, but the actual gear lever action doesn't feel bad. Don't think it did this at new, not sure when it started. Was doing it during hot summer months too.

    Mountune induction pipes?

    Thanks, yep, got a K&N.
  3. I would like a little more induction and turbo noise on my 1.0 ecoboost - can anyone advise on the effect of the mountune primary / secondary / hardpipe - individually or in combination? I don't want to go stupidly loud, and will be keeping the original airbox. TIA

    Access to front fogs on Mk8 St line?

    Perfect! Thanks very much, I did google it but didn't find that video.
  5. The manual says that on the Stline and Vignale you use a screwdriver to prise off the surround to the front fogs and then you can remove the fixing screws to take the lamp out and change the bulb. I had a brief look at it and the black trim/surround doesn't want to come off easily - anyone done this and know the trick for removal without messing up the paint?

    MK8 Footwell lights

    Thanks to all on this thread with the various info. I fitted my Ford footwell lights and they are very good - ambient indeed, a nice touch. I used a mirror to see where the driver side wire was. It uses the clip on the electrical connector to fix in a hole with the connector pins facing the driver, so if you reach under the panel and locate it by touch, it actually comes out really easily if you press down on the clip at the top and pull it directly towards the front of the car. No need for removing anything.

    Warning chimes changed sound?

    Yep, seem to come from a speaker near the dials somewhere. And weirdly - now back to normal.....
  8. Here's an odd one: for no apparent reason, as of this morning, the sound of my warning beeps/chimes for park sensor and door open have changed - it's gone sort of quieter, more high pitched and tinny. Hard to explain but it's very noticeable. Anyone else had this?

    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?

    MK8 Door Panel Squeak

    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? ?
