  1. Hi All I tend to echo those thoughts from time to time. Stay safe Happy motoring Dave Sent from my SM-J600FN using Tapatalk
  2. Hi All Sounds like the government moved the goalposts since I really last looked into all the ins and outs of it, so I accept that I stand corrected. Stay safe Happy motoring Dave Sent from my SM-J600FN using Tapatalk
  3. Hi All My Edge is 2016 registered. Having just checked online, my tax this year will be £160.00 My Edge is a Titanium, Manual, 4WD/AWD 180ps (so is lower rating than autos that seem to be normally around the 235ps) and likewise my emissions are rated at 149 (again autos are higher, so I am in a lower band here as well), with plenty of extras, before discounts was over 40k to buy. I do recall that as government changed the road tax rules to include hybrids, electric etc with the extra 5 years/cars value included that were very low or no tax prior to changes from late 2016 onwards (after my purchase), that when I am asked what I would recommend, I answer by saying if you want to avoid higher taxes then by 2016 or older if buying a used vehicle.

  4. Hi All Update on horn issue, had another blind driver pull out on me, again I had to press my horn, and to my surprise both tones now working again, (car has not been in yet to get checked due to ongoing pandemic). So now I am not sure whether to pursue my horn issue, or drop it. The TPMS issue is still ongoing (though), so I do plan to follow up on this.

  5. Hi All Sparky_82 When I was in the process of changing my tyres, I treated them as normal 2 wheel drive - as in I replaced both fronts first, followed by both rears a couple of three months later. I, like yourself, do not know of a proper way, if there is any, but I have had no problems other than way some !@#$er decided to put a screw in one of my tyres (another story). Hope this maybe of some help. Happy Motoring Stay Safe Dave Sent from my SM-J600FN using Tapatalk
  6. Hi All Since buying my Edge in 2016 I have changed all my tyres due to wear. I had Continental's as factory fitted, which as my local tyre centre explained to me are made from a slightly softer compound compared with the Bridgestone's that I currently have. (The Bridgestone's that I am using are the same as fitted to the X5's). Currently literally just passed 30k miles on way to work today, and apart from normal wear tyres seem ok. As to road noise, as everyone's perception of this is different, I would say that in my case seems to be slightly quieter. Stay safe everyone.

  7. Hi All There is a form of electronic workshop manual, as mentioned elsewhere in this Edge forum. I don't know how full\complete it is, as I have only looked at one page of it (front brakes). When I get home later, I shall see if I have a link to it on my computer, that can be posted. Happy motoring Dave Sent from my SM-J600FN using Tapatalk
  8. Hi All I will be finding out about 36k/4year service in a few months. Cost not a worry to me as FMC paying for service as complimentary gesture for all my earlier problems with my Edge. I have already received and in possession of my letter of confirmation for this. I am keeping an ear open as to this subject for things to check out once my service is done.

  9. Not to mention getting engine balanced, blue printed, etc. Cutting holes through inner wheel arches to fit twin 40's. Or dropping a 3 litre v6 lump into a mkI or mkII escort. Going mobile with a sigma IV, and connecting up to a moonraker 6 where the shop owner had just put the pl259 on his porch roof. (Not that I have any idea what any of this means). Yep, Technology has a lot to answer for nowadays. Though a fair amount of it is good, there are a distinct quantity of gremlins that crop up every so often, I tend to think sonetimes that when I got my Edge, it included some of the optional gremlins.

  10. As for me, my standard answer to that is too old (lol). Happy motoring Dave Sent from my SM-J600FN using Tapatalk
  11. Hi All Wasn't there a period when the sunroof drain tubes were not fitted or routed correctly on some models leading to water ingress problems, (though this would only be a possibility if you had had rain where you are)? Happy motoring Dave Sent from my SM-J600FN using Tapatalk
  12. Hi All Ford Customer Relations now on case. Have been assigned a case manager. Makes it sound a bit like csa, csi, etc. Let's see what they make of it all, as I also brought up the subject of ongoing TPMS problems still outstanding from warranty period, that said warranty should still cover, that I want sorted.

  13. No worries about power drain. Like I said has been connected up this way for over 2.5 years with no battery drain issues. I also think that the power supply I tapped into also powers the cigarette lighter sockets and the radio as well. Happy motoring Dave Sent from my SM-J600FN using Tapatalk
  14. Hi All My car is an Edge, not a Fiesta, but I have 2 dash cams connected this way with no power drain issues. Has been connected this way for about 2.5 years now. Power stays on for about 1 hour after all turned off keeping dash cams visibly active (nice unexpected deterrent) before going into knock etc activation mode when power goes off. Don't know if same would apply to Fiesta Happy motoring Dave Sent from my SM-J600FN using Tapatalk
  15. So the other day on way home from work an 1d1ot driver decides to pull out on me (as if my car not big enough to see, clear weather conditions, during daylight, and I always have my DRL on), causing me sound warning (horn) only to find out that one of the tones has stopped working. Now horn sounds like duck on steroids. I had this couple of years ago and fixed whilst car under warranty. I was told then that the horns had become unreliable as FMC were getting a lot of faults with them. Just wondering if anyone else has had horn problems. Also wondering if can get repaired under warranty as warranty repair has now failed. Happy motoring Dave Sent from my SM-J600FN using Tapatalk
