      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. Hi Guys & Girls, I have done a fair bit of searching for the answer to this, but to no avail. The nearside rear door on my S-max has a bit of an issue with locking. Sometimes it will lock and sometimes it wont. I have pulled the door card off and checked the cable from the button to the lock and lubricated it, but it seems to move freely. I have also had a look inside the door (as best I can without destroying the soundproofing cover), but can see what type of actuator it has. I assume the actuator is the problem and I'm hoping it's not going to be silly money to replace. I also have to replace another trailing arm due to the bush going again. Anyone had any experience of doing either of these? Cheers Ian
  2. Hi Guys, I have an 09 SMax and have recently restored a box trailer and fitted it with LED lights. When I indicate, the indicators flash too quickly indicating a fault with the indicators. I believe this is due to the low draw of the LED indicators and a fault common on some Fords and Landys. I have seen some options which should fix the problem, but nobody seems to know anything about them. I am looking to mount a cure inside the trailer, but the one I have come across most (a basic resistor) gets to 170 degrees C. I ave also come across some other options, but wouldlike some more info on them.

Thanks in advance. Ian

    Hi All, I drive an SMax, live in Suffolk and have just joined to get some help on wiring issues, which I won't write about here so Admin don't slap my wrist. Look forward to joining in discussions. Ian
