      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.

  2. External mirrors

    Hi all. Anyone have any idea what the small 'protrusion' is beneath my near side door mirror? I was trying to get the casing back on earlier after someone had pushed the mirror the 'wrong' way last night. There isn't one on the drivers mirror casing. Struggling to get casing back on properly but that's another story Cheers
  3. Emergency Assist

    I thought the emergency assist was purely to enable your location to be transmitted to the emergency services in the event of an accident. I don't think it stores any information. Although I'm probably mistaken😜

    Bit slow to update. Took the car back to dealership who recently replaced the engine. It appears one of the injector seals was warped. They looked at it while I waited. Car all good again.

  8. 2013 Focus overheating etc.

    Grrrrrrr!!!!!! Ran engine in slowly, serviced and MOT done. Coming home tonight, just as I approached house, engine symbol flashed up on dash and car seemed to want to cut out. Now runs, no symbol but idle doesn't feel as smooth as normal and petrol smell. Call to dealership in the morning.

    Focus servicing tends to be 12500 miles or every twelve months, whichever comes first.

  12. Surely if the car is unlocked you open the boot with the tailgate button? My boot doesn't lock every time I close it unless I've locked the car. Then the fob is used to unlock Maybe I'm thinking too much into this😄

    Ford Customer Services called me today. They are sending £100 of Ford vouchers for the inconvenience! Deflectors here I come 😄 Ford sell Climairs I think. Any good?
  14. servicing

    I have a 63 plate Zetec S which I have serviced by a local garage. VAT registered and only genuine parts. I've used them for years and all our family cars are serviced there. I've just had the engine replaced by Ford under warranty due to the degas hose fail. No quibbles, questions or bull. Local garages are generally better value and often go that extra bit for customer service.

    Hi Mike. Certainly will. Need to run it in for 500 miles. One thing I didn't ask about was servicing. It's due it's third annual service and MOT end of November. Does it get serviced as a new car/engine or standard third service?
