      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. I bought a Ford Street KA Lux Ed 2004 plate a month ago. Roof problem: On the first morning I had the displeasure of cracking my rear window by lifting it to drop the roof, after the initial crack I decided what the hell and pulled it all the way cracking it in to 3 pieces. After all that the lid to drop the roof faild to open. After pulling the material away in the boot I saw the solenoid that pushes a lever to release the clips, I saw that the lever has a hole in it. Is there a way to add a mechanical switch that bypasses the electrical rubbish to release the clips? Also it took a while but I was able to replace the window, I do not recomend that people do this them selves. it's in but it has a 45^ kink in it. Indicator problem: Every time I approach a round about indicating right the front indicator goes off for 5 - 10 seconds then works again. I can only speculate that I eather have a loose conection, water in the bulb housing or corroded contacts. I've had a look under the hood and see no way to get to the connector. Does anyone know or can advise how to do so?
