  1. Whilst doing a headlight bulb upgrade the other day one of the clips keeping the connector in the headlamp snapped so now the connector will not stay in the back of the headlight , it is currently held in with four cable ties so I can use the car . Sadly due to the above issue I now have a Headlamp Malfunction message displaced on my dash and the when the dipped beam is turned on it does not go through its start up procedure so what I am wondering what is the best way to secure the connector more permanently without having to replace the connector as it has around twelve wires to splice as my
  2. I also have a 2010 power shift car which I bought in 2015 with 79000 on the clock with full service history and a receipt for £1600 for a replacement clutch due to a missed oil and filter change had the oil and filter changed three years after the clutch replacement even though it only had 13000 miles between the rebuild and the three year time interval. Had it done by my friendly main dealer mechanic for £120 , money well spent me thinks the car now has 92800 on the clock and the box preforms faultlessly. The oil and filter change transforms the box so avoid the 37000 / 3 year service at you
  3. The fuse you need behind the glovebox is number 3 and you will need a micro 2 fuse holder to complete the job. Been there and done it.
  4. My fuse link for doing the piggy back was supplied by Nextbase free of charge as I was installing one of their dashcams.
  5. Just done my daughters 68 plate Fiesta and I used the fuse number 3 in the fusebox in the passenger foot well - this is an ignition live so will only power up when you put the key in the ignition also you will need a micro fuse holder to piggy back it.
  6. The trim is held in place by double sided tape from the factory , both trims on my daughters Fiesta came loose and were re secured by my local windscreen installer. They cost about £50.00 a pair to replace from Fords. 😮
  7. Pid16v, both my Titanium X estates had / have auto fold mirrors - my sadly written off 58 reg 2.5T and my current one a 60 reg 2.0 Ecoboost. Can you not check the spec of your car on Etis.
  8. BigShuggs your reverse sensor problem sounds like the one I had on my car - it turned out to be the reversing sensor buzzer was faulty and when replaced for the grand total of £12 from Ford all was well. The buzzer was located in the roof lining by the rear interior light and what a faff to locate and pain to remove as it is glued to the lining I should have left it there 😮 and the wiring could have been a bit longer. My car is the estate version so your buzzer could be located in the boot area if your is a hatchback - found that out the hard way after stripping the back end of my car out com
  9. The bulb is a 501 also called a wedge bulb and it will be a 5 watt rating.
  10. Have you tried changing the wheels from the front to the back in case you have buckled wheel or check you haven't lost a weight. Have you also checked the wheel bearings for play.
  11. If I had this problem on my car I would contact a auto gearbox specialist as they may have come across this problem before or can advise you what you need to do as you already have fault codes.
  12. Sounds like you have popped the bumper out of the locating holes in the centre so you will have to loosen / slide the bumper forward to be able to relocate the pegs again. Sadly it is quite an involved job - lights out, under tray off, etc.
  13. If you fit a towbar mounted rack and the bikes cover either the number plate or rear lights you should fit a lighting board and number plate to stay legal as the Police take a dim view of bikes covering lights and number plates - I used one on both a Peugeot 406 estate and a Ford Freda and the bikes covered either the lights or the plate so I couldn't win.
  14. Had mine done by my friendly Ford mechanic using Ford oil and filter.
