  1. They changed the exhaust system on these in the 07/2009, easiest way to tell is to get underneath the car and look at where the flexi is in the exhaust. Hopefully the diagram below will help you identify it:- The top image is the early system upto the 07/2009 and the bottom one is the later system 07/2009 onwards
  2. So much easier with a hydraulic press 😂
  3. Your car will be a MK7, The MK6 brake set up is totally different. The FINNS number are 1883039 for R/H and 1883040 for L/H. I would try and obtain a good set of 2nd hand ones if possible, all Mk7 Fiesta caliper carriers are the same from 2008> (With the exception of the ST)
  4. PFL = Pre Face Lift You won't find a sat nav system to fit a PFL car as they did not manufacture one to my knowledge. You need to find out how many plugs are on the back of your head unit before commencing on a retro fit. It is possible to fit a nav system from a newer vehicle as I have done in my 2008 car without issues, it will be easier if you have a single black 24 pin plug in your car, it should do as I think they were introduced around 2010> in the Fiesta.
  5. Yup will absolutely be attending again!
  6. Modify it to fit as best you can or the easiest option buy an exhaust that fits your vehicle. The manifold system on the 1.4 and 2.0 engines are a different setup altogether.
  7. Shocker or top mounting would be my best guess.
  8. Can be done quite easily DIY. You will need to remove the black strips that run from front to back on your roof, clean away any remaining sticky from the bodywork with a solvent such as panel wipe. Take a close look at where you have just removed the strips from and check for any fine cracks or splits in the sealant. Go to your local builders merchant and pick up some roofing sealant, chances are the cracks will be above the rear window. Run the sealant over any cracks, it takes 24hrs to cure fully and is over paintable if you wish to do so. Once cured either stick your trims back on with fresh double sided tape or purchase a new pair from Ford, I paid £25 for a pair of new ones. Did this fix 2 years ago and have never had any water in the boot since then.
  9. Will be getting in underneath the black roof trims. Where the side panels and the roof panel meet it is covered with a bead of sealant from front to rear. Once the body shell is painted the black strip is attached over the top using double sided tape. It's common on the early build Mk7 for this sealant to crack with age allowing water to seep in between the panels and run into the boot area. My car was affected by the same issue, if the water is clean then this is more than likely where your problem lies.
  10. Cobra performance or a Miltek system would be a good shout.
  11. It won't.... You will need the dealer to reprogram or someone with access to IDS. You can download a free program from the net called Forscan which will allow you to make the changes to the cars modules 😊
  12. Common issue with IB5 Gearbox. The engine is driven by a timing belt.
  13. I've installed nav into my car. As above the Green is for reverse camera, Blue for GPS antenna, Black and Pink feed the unit traffic information I believe...

  15. What year and what engine is in your car?
