      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      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. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. hi there. I have a mk4 fiesta, 1.3 endura engined beastie that ive recently had to do some work on. The problem is - after putting it all back together, i couldnt remember wether the alternator main wire ran to the starter motor ( the top connection of the solenoid), or direct to the battery terminal? Can anyone help? The haynes manual shows the wire running to both(!), so that wasnt much help. on a side note, i had one side the car jacked up the other day and started the engine, and i noticed the wheel of the side that was off the ground was spinning slowly, even though it was in nuetral. has anyone come across this before? thanks in advance to any help or advice
