  1. @LukeJQuinnbeen following thia thread a while. Shame to hear about the accident mate! 

    My battery on my car has run flat a few times. Had RAC out to boost the car, had to have my Dad come with Jump leads etc... once had it in at Ford for them to just recharge it over night and do a "software" update.

    Do you know if there was a batch number/specific battery that was fitted and what battery do you have now? Tia. 

  2. Great game to watch. Wasn't overly fussed if Messi didn't acheive his dream of WC. But, they were the better team and they won against France, making it slightly sweeter with them knocking us out and Mbappe not lifting the trophy after laughing at Harry Kane missing his pen 🤷‍♂️

  3. Annoying rattles come and go, I can't stand them! Had plenty over the years. Don't be blaming me if you can't refit the part. But if you pull the rubber seal on the door away. You can then probably prise or pull at the grey roof liner to get behind. Choose a soft filling of your prefence and pop back into place. 

  4. Enjoyed reading this thread, to an extent... motoring can be annoying, frustrating and everything inbetween! I've had the same issue with my Mk4 ST edition, battery completely going flat, car deadlocking itself and had to have it charged up etc... interesting to see this though. Curious if the little pesky door light is the issue! Might have to give that a try myself... 


    One issue at a time though... currently battling with a stiff/sticky/dry feel in the brake pedal accompanied with a "pssssh" when pressed. 71 plate, 13k miles.

  5. Hi all. 

    Having the Milltek GPF Delete and GPF back exhaust installed on my mk8 fiesta ST, the dash is throwing up the engine warning light... i've been told this is due to the lambda sensors and the car thinking the GPF unit is still there. 

    Does anyone have any experience or advice in this case? 

    Also been told that the revo stage1 remap should irradicate the Engine Warning Light.

    Thanks, Cookey.

    I’ve recently installed some new headlights on my fiesta, it previously had H15 Drl/mainbeam bulbs, the new lights have the led drl strip but are dim when they should be bright and bright when they should be dim, I’ve heard that this is solved with IDS. Does anybody know where this can be done. @Cookey09 did you get your lights done?

    HI mate, no I didnt, I opted to chop my 1.0ecoboost in for a new st3 not long after my post... I have heard forscan is the way to go or if you have a mate or are friendly enough with any ford dealers/mechanics they should be able to do it for you if you tell them it can be done through forscan... 


    I do know however that autobeam.co.uk do h15 LED Bulbs now, which I wish were available for when I had mine, let me know how you get on with it mate.

    That looks really good. There's a company called wicked arts who make similar pictures like that. I bought a keyring from them which has a cartoon picture of my previous car with a leather backing. Planning in the future to get that again but with a cartoon picture of my fiesta. Might look into your also now

    Thanks! I am aware of WickedArts, always seen there products in keyrings, mugs etc... 

    Mine were just an alternative something a little different, more sketcthy art as apposed to drawn clean. But if you fancy something, give me a shout! 👍

  11. Nice! Hope you enjoy it! It is a nippy little motor, I had a 1.0 100 Zetec 5door with the dress up kit as my first car! I loved it! Check my gallery out for photos! 

    Not that your thinking of touching it right now, but i do have some intake pipes for sale that will fit your engine!😉


  12. Couldnt help you RE: 2 and 3, but i do know its possible to actually programme the car to lock its doors above the speed you desire. I can't remember how though... 

    It is however through something that needs plugging and programming... im sure someone on here will point you in the right direction regarding this..

  13. Not me. But my brother had his lower grille on his ST that he had painted gloss black by PaintModz, ripped out of his front bumper a month or two ago. They tried taking the gloss black fog surrounds too but couldnt as they wouldnt budge...

    It was outside our house in daytime! Shame we didnt catch them in the act!
