      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. help with missing part, what's it called?

    This happened to me on my 2014 Fiesta shortly after I purchased it. Asked to have it replaced under warranty but was informed as I didn't have the old one it couldn't be done. I believe it came off somewhere on the M4. Ordered the item and two clips from the dealer. Clips turned up but spat never did. Hope you have better luck.
  2. Exhaust on 2013 Ecoboost

    My grand daughters 09 Fiesta titanium X with 55K on clock still on original exhaust and just passed it's MOT with it.
  3. Boot lid opening

    Hi BJT Took it to the dealer this morning. Agreed not right and rechecked hinges, OK. Has ordered new gas struts. Hope that will cure it.
  4. Boot lid opening

    Hi all My Fiesta is a Mk8 and I appear to have a problem with the boot lid opening. Once it is unlocked I lift it about half way open, let go, and it stays there. Gas struts don't appear to want to open it any further. I have to manually lift it the rest of the way. I have knocked the two hinge pins from side to side to remove the paint from them and lubricated the pins. All to no affect. As the car is only 7 months old and has been like it from new I would not have thought the gas struts would be the cause. Have any of you any further thoughts on the subject before I head to my local Ford dealer to see what excuses they can come up with.
  5. Fiesta mk8 wind deflectors

    Have bought full set of climair via Ford dealer. Fitting front ones no problem. Back ones proving a problem as instructions on fitting supplied clips not very clear. Waiting or warmer weather before having another go at them.
  6. Hi All Have any of you Mk8 owners had the following carried out on your car, or attempted to have it carried out? Outstanding Field Service Actions 17U19 - FIESTA (B479) CROSS TRAFFIC ALERT TONE My local Ford dealer has tried twice to install the above update and failed. Have now said they are going to contact Ford to try and resolve the issue. Has anyone had this done successfully?
  7. MK8 Fiesta - issues with build quality

    Hi My sat-nav on my Mk8 lost GPS signal once and reset after I turned ignition off. Once it indicated it had lost signal but carried on giving correct indications. Got mine early August and both my problems occurred in the first two months. OK since.. Not suffering any of your other two issues. Agree a lot better than the Mk 7.5.
  8. New Fiesta with Sync 3 query

    Had this lose of GPS notification on mine early in its life. Like you returned after a restart of the car. Also once when I was diverted off the M4 into Newport due to roadworks it got completely confused even though it was the sat nav that diverted me off..I cancelled the route and received a message saying cancelling route which remained until I got to motorway services. When I restarted the car it was back up and running on my previous selected route
  9. New Fiesta TPMS wrong value

    Have just checked mine. Two readings match. One reading 1 psi difference. One reading 2 psi difference. Is it possible your tyre pressure gauge is out. If I remember right you get a warning if your tyre pressure drops 5% so if you have a difference between actual and indicated you will still get the warning if you have a pressure drop which is the main thing. Now I come to think of it I believe the pressure drop required for the warning to occur is 20%. This would give a drop of 6 psi on a 30 psi tyre. Where as 5% would be 1.5 psi. A bit to critical as a tyre could lose that on really cold day.
  10. Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    No difference in adding the extras
  11. Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    When In ordered my Titanium I added all the extras that the X had over it but didn't have the option of adding partial leather seats. I therefor have virtually a Titanium X without the delay. Just a way around the delay unless you really want partial leather seats.
  12. Sync3 Firmware and Nav Updates

    Don't know if this is any help but I have just checked my June build Fiesta sync 3 map version and it is F6.1 New local nine month old roundabout not shown on my version but updated on my TomTom.
  13. Mk8 Fiesta fiasco - a silly story

    As you say it takes a bit of getting used to pulling the collar up. I have had my Mk 8 since August and it took almost a month to get it right ever time. Like you I have been driving for nearly 60 years. Hope you get as much pleasure driving your new car as I am mine.
  14. Glove box fuse box

    Thanks Russ. If you look at the timings from my update thread I found it about the same time as your reply. Correct it is in the footwell. I still wonder how many people are going to get caught out with this.
  15. Hi all I have at long last found the so called glove box fuse box. On the Mk 8 it is not behind the glove box as the manual states. It is under a hinged fibre cover just above where a passengers feet would rest. Hope this is helpful and will stop some of you lowering the glove box and scratching your head looking for it there like me. I believe some of the Focus models have it in the same place.
