  1. Well just to bump the post up, i recently had mine done by someone - let's say, i've had some headaches with it since., but most of it has been rectified by my dad who's a mechanic. But whilst it was being done i've had the front brakes upgraded to ST180 one's also. I've noticed since yesterday after 5/10mins of driving a squeaky noise from front off-side? only when it seems to pull away on it's own (mine's an auto), over 10mph it goes. the noise i can describe it as....say a gate hinge not been oiled? that. the pads have plenty of meat on them. the discs are fine - not brand new, but good enough on car. i had braided lines all round done. The discs all round did have some rust where been sitting around for a long while. Everything is tightened up etc. The handbrake cable had issues at beginning but it's been temp repaired so until i get my new ST one supplied & fitted tomorrow. (i can put it in park for the moment) Other thing i've noticed on my rear axle, the wheels each side, have a tiny, TINY bit of play in them? identical each side? i will be having the garage look at this, as it does not seem to be a bearing gone? the axle came off 600 mile ST180 i was told. anyone able to suggest thoughts on maybe the noise and the bearing on the back? in a way wish i'd never had anything done - i'm only 10months into driving and as you can imagine when got back from garage i felt i've ruined my car etc, so stressed beyond believe. but like i keep getting told - a car can be fixed
  2. had all hoses changed to mountune at moment, so hopefully helps with air flow. but when i decide on who to remap, be intercooler changed also
  3. oh, it's driveable, used it to take my driving lessons/test in, think people would of commented on saying got issue there lol. also no strange noises. only noise thats loud i got is coming from induction kit fitted y/day lol
  4. see i've only really read about this TCM recall stuff last few days, i have a 64 plate (registered 2015), i mean, sometimes it's felt a bit jerky, but not shunting forwards etc and maybe when goes up hill, it feels like it drops abit, but it seems like it's just tried to find right gear as going up hill now. i dunno if it's got the issues really, it's my first car (driving since may), only got it this time last year.
  5. Hi, i have the 1.0L, i just changed my backbox to an ST one as i didnt really want anything too loud, just a nice tone when put foot down. But obv now looking at remapping and when that's being done i will have the full exhaust system done. at the moment it's between Scorpion or Mongoose (recommended by the remap company), but i'd like resonated, so again it's nothing too too loud - not a fan of all this miltek stuff
  6. Hi, yeah i'm after the guide for the skirts/front lip also
  7. Hi, my fiesta was registered jan 15 (64 plate) - I've only had the car myself a year, properly driving it since may. I've had some jerky/shudders, but nothing maor & wasn't sure if it was just myself (new driver) letting off & wrong time when auto box was selecting? unsure. but is there anyway i can ask ford to check if my has the TCM? or latest gearbox software sorted? recently took it to main dealer for major service - they ended up doing a 2nd year service only, did not stamp book & on paperwork wrote my mileage down wrong saying it had done 10,000 more than it had. car is currently over 17,000. so after some phone calls other week ref this, they decided to sort spark plugs,, rectify all paperwork correctly/stamp book and some kind of allignment? they hadnt done as i wasnt worried about brake pads as they were being changed in a month or two myself to sport ones. Also air flter was not fussed about as it has an aftermarket one. so, reckon i ring ford customer service tomorrow? as i mean warranty expires end of month. but also i have a cone air filter on it (forge motorsport) & ST backbox on. this would not affect warranty / issues to gearbox would it? ( i have mountune cooler/boost/turbo hoses)
  8. Hi, have you had your powershift one done? any issue's? sorry for bumping this topic back up everyone, but it's all i've been reading about. I have the 1.0 Ecoboost 100 Powershift also, and i really want to get a remap. I've been looking around and seen people like Celtic Tuning on there site offer it for powershift, and couple of custom remap companys (not maybe as well known as others) offer. My vehicle went in today and had the Forge Motorsport induction kit fitted, but they have taken the ECU ID to be sent off to Revo to see what they can do for me. I was told somthing by mechanics at shop though about 32bit ecu gearbox? and somthing to do with USA models? not sure. But really, my heart is set on maybe going to Collins Performance (amount of reviews, feedback i've heard is outstanding), they have said can do powershift model, either Stage 1 = 130bhp, or stage 2 = 147bhp - be fair i'd probably only go stage 1. but i've noticed this on pumaspeed website http://www.pumaspeed.co.uk/product-MAXD-Tuning-Box---Fiesta-10-Eco-PowerShift-and-World-Models-Stage-1_16760.jsp anyway, see what Revo find, but only concern is like i say, they never done powershift as of yet, not sure i feel i want to be the 1st, like guinea pig if you get me. anyone with a powershift model, with any experience on remaps, be much appreciated i tend to have a full exhaust system done, even intercooler fitted if it's going to help keep everything running fine. my car just done over 17,000 now
  9. Hi, just put a new (well second hand) rear bumper on my fiesta, all bolted correctly, all clicked in, but it seems to be like a tiny bit out of line? and rear light on left i've noticed (which was changed) sticks out tiny bit also? Would i need new bumper brackets? i'll try upload some pics
  10. i don't seem to have the 2x 6mm bolts for the ST diffuser tabs to do up, where can i get them?
  11. just curious, how comes had focus washer jets on it? and the RS exhaust mounts fitted? is this required for the ST backbox?
  12. got mine on warranty ; ) but yea i've read about the switch being an issue, the metal prongs? need squeeze them abit?
  13. did mine, was just a bulb. looks much better
