      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.

The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Yes, I found the indentation on the rear right of the plastic cover With screwdriver, lock restored back to normal Thanks
  2. Iantt Phew thanks for that info. I had visions of removing the boot plastic cover, then removing the lock and getting inside to release mechanism I will give it a try next morning. Much appreciated alan
  3. I had to carry a bike in the back of my Fiestam MK7 To stop the "Boot Open" alarm, I mechanically moved the lock mechanism to the closed position I thought that when I used the key fob to release the door locks this would also release the lock mechanism However, it is permanently stuck in the closed position, so now I am unable to close the boot On reflection a stupid move Any idea how I can release this lock now back to its open position
  4. Auxiliary Power Socket

    Thanks both, I will look into those suggestions
  5. Auxiliary Power Socket

    Fiesta 2011, 1.4 Petrol I went to fit a Dash Cam to my daughters Fiesta this weekend only to find the Power Socket by the Gear Lever permanently live Never come across this before ? My own 2014, 1.4 Fiesta, the socket is only live when the ignition switch is in the aux position Dont fancy leaving a Dash Cam live 24/7, with the vehicle unattended Is this feature normal on some models ? Where could I find an easy accessible supply operated by the ignition key ?
  6. Reverse Gear

    Ok, I will give that a try I was under the assumption, your reply was some sort of joke Sounds a feasible option to try
  7. Reverse Gear

    Yes, when it first occurred, I wondered what the heck had happened I was on a grass verge, I selected reverse, there was a bang/crash then the engine was racing like fury - as I had my foot on the accelerator
  8. Reverse Gear

    Well, I find that either very re-assuring or very worrying My Fiesta has only done 10k, it only started last week, so I will try different techniques of engaging gear Thanks for the advice
  9. Reverse Gear

    I never occurred to me to read a book on how to select reverse ! Do you take me for some sort of idiot, the handbook states " not to engage reverse gear while moving forward" I can tell the difference between jumping out of gear or stripping the gear wheels of their teeth !!
  10. Reverse Gear

    My 2014 1.25 has now developed a worrying habit for jumping out of reverse gear Put it into reverse, let out the clutch and Bang its jumped out Are we looking at an simple adjustment here or a gear box problem Fortunately, its still under the Used Warranty
  11. Witter Tow Bar problems

    DIMWIT here has solved the problem Previously I had checked the chassis rail for holes I only found the end hole Today after using a wire brush to remove mud and debris I uncovered another hole which is designed to fit Bolt E So with this uncovered hole to fit this additional bolt, the problem has been resolved Looking at the schematic I was under the false illusion that the section D and E was eternal to the chassis rail The instructions said tighten bolt F into Chassis rail - it would have been far better if it said fit Bolts E and F into Chassis rail Anyway, thanks to all who took the trouble to leave their comments TOPIC CLOSED
  12. Witter Tow Bar problems

    Either 2 x Hole F is fixed onto Chassis bar by bolt (a)Total Lenght of side rail 43cm (b)Distance between E and F = 29cm (c)Distance between hole in chassis bar and the rear bodywork - 32cm So as per my first image hole E is inaccessible as it now inside the Chassis bar by 3/4 cm What the heck am I doing wrong Like you I have fitted bars to Corsa, Puntos and other earlier Fords but I have never got stuck like this
  13. Witter Tow Bar problems

    Only one side of chassis rail The left hole is right behind the two fuel pipes making it a real pig to get inserted
  14. Witter Tow Bar problems

    Not Quite On my schematic the fixing point E has now disappeared into the chassis rail, If I pull it out to expose Fixing point E then F wont line up with the internal chassis rail hole Its what they call a "conundrum"
