      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.

  3. Air Vent R`emoval??

    lol....i like the idea!! but what bait should i use to lure it out!! seriously though, its gonna have to be something like that.....trouble is finding the time to have a proper go at it.....
  4. 12V Lighter Socket

    yeah it worked as you said. i have a belkin one with a green led and like you said it woke up again when i unlocked the car......cheers again.....i had a look at the manual too and it said it in there also.....should have checked that first i suppose...but when do us men ever read the instructions.... :D

  6. 12V Lighter Socket

  7. 12V Lighter Socket

    i bought a usb socket for my ipod. but it seems the socket in the front stays on after the engine is switched off, which is a pain because i have to pull it out every time i park up. any ideas how the socket can be swithced off?
  8. Air Vent R`emoval??

    the problem will be getting in there to get it...my hands are far too big to fit down the holes..... :D
  9. Air Vent R`emoval??

    possibly, but it sounded like a pen sliding along the whole length of the dash.......if thats possible
  10. Air Vent R`emoval??

    annoyingly, i removed them and the noise stopped....guess whatever it is, is now lodged somewhere.....but at least its not sliding around for now....
  11. Air Vent R`emoval??

    yes they do just slide out.....got a bit brave and took a knife to them.....have now removed the 3 central and drivers side vents but still struggling to identify what it is sliding around back there! Probably need an extra pair of eyes to look, while i hang it round a few corners. Plus my hands are too big to get in there and have a good feel about. thanks for your help anyway
  12. Air Vent R`emoval??

    I'm a bit of a chicken when it comes to stuff like this.....always worried i'll cause more damage than actually fix the issue.... I had another look at my vents and could not see any obvious clips, i took a couple of pics
  13. Air Vent R`emoval??

    OK thanks for that guys, i did try to give it a gentle wiggle, but suspected there would be some clips holding them in somewhere which I'd prefer not to snap off. I'll have another look, and if no joy I'll post up a pic of my vents. cheers again
  14. Air Vent R`emoval??

    I appear to have something sliding back and forth behind the dash when I go round corners?? My guess is that something, sound like a pen, has been dropped down the air vents, and is now stuck in there! Is there anyway to remove the air vents out of the dash (ideally without breaking them) so I can get in to see if my suspicions are correct?
