      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. Turbo

    Just to keep you informed, we had the turbo replaced(twice, the first one was faulty) and many other parts with it after getting a Technical Service bullitin regarding the problem!!! This cost us a total of £1075 and was to prevent the problem from happening again. Guess what we have had the car back 5 weeks today and the turbo has gone again!! We are now locked in a battle with our garage who have done the work and ford Furrows who they bought the parts off and have no car!! We would be really grateful to know if any of you have had Turbo problems??

    Thanks for the reply, we have since taken it to a ford garage and had it tested on the computer it came up a problem with the bonnet catch. but when we had the car the handle or sunglasses case was missing above the drivers door so we have replaced that and touch wood that has solved the problem. We think the roof lining was dropping slightly when it went cold at night triggering the sensor.
  3. Turbo

    Having owned our c-max for just 5 weeks and following the car alarm going off all the time we now have a more serious problem, the Turbo has gone!! We purchased the car privately so have no come back on it. The car is an 2005 plate and has done 50,000 miles. We have had a quote for repairs for £900+ and have been told this is a common fault with the c-max and to prevent it happening again it should be serviced every 5,000 miles?? That would mean us servicing it about 3 times a year, we bought the car thinking it was going to be more economical to run that our old rover, has anyone got any advice on this as we are really gutted at the moment.

    We are having problems with our Alarm going off on our C-MAX, we have only had the car for just over two weeks but on several occasions the alarm randomly goes off. The other night it went off four times over a spell of 3 hours, can anyone help or advise us. We can't find anything in the manual about disconnecting it etc HELP PLEASE!
