    Your Insurance Annual?

    Got my latest renewal through: Admiral £947 (up £120 from the previous year). After looking on some comparison website (and other insurers not on comparison websites) I will be going with Esure at £720. I am aware Esure's customer service can be worse than non-existent, but it saves me over £200!

    Your Insurance Annual?

    TPFT? Live in the city or countryside? Not as busy roads? Safer area? Fewer thefts? There's loads that can affect it, but I definitely wish I could pay that little for a '17 ST! 😃

    Fiesta Mk7.5 Blowing Hot Air

    I did solve it Simon, but it appeared it was my stupidity! The hot air that was blowing out the vents was because the cabin temperature was lower than the set temperature of the climate control. For example, if the climate control is set at 17c and the cabin temperature is 15c, it will continue to blow hot air out of the vents until the cabin temperature reaches 17c. It appears this is normal operation for climate control, and since this is my first car with climate control, it confused me at first. Does yours blow cold when set to "LO"? A good test to make sure it is working is set it to a hot temperature such as 23c and let the car heat up. Then set the temperature at a value it was previously blowing hot air out of the vents, say 17c, and see if the vents blow cold. They should. Hope this helps!

    2013 1.0l Ecoboost engine rust. Problem?

    IMO the turbo would need replacing. The rust looks too have cut quite deep into the pipe. If it were a small amount of speckled surface rust then you could wirebrush/sand the surface and apply VHT paint in order to seal it. I can't see quite how bad the damage is, but if the rust is nearly the whole way through the pipe sidewall then you should refrain from driving it.

    Fiesta Mk7.5 Parcel Shelf Peg

    This I am probably going to do. Like you said, I lose nothing if it doesn't work. Do you guys think if I glued some sort of plastic dowelling (same colour) it would hold? I'll probably try this first and then if it doesn't work or isn't sturdy enough I will try nut and bolting it. Thanks again guys.

    Fiesta Mk7.5 Parcel Shelf Peg

    I have no idea how it happened.... Came back from the airport to find it like that and the peg that had broken off nowhere to be seen! lol Okay, that doesn't seem too bad I will try that myself. I am struggling to find the part for a 2015 Fiesta anywhere though...
  8. Hi all, Been away for some time and since coming back from holidays I have found that one of the parcel shelf pegs (driver's side) has snapped. Unfortunately, the peg and the plastic boot trim seem to be one moulded piece. Am I correct saying this? If so, how easy is this piece to replace? And how would I go about doing it? TIA

    Door Trim Thing ?

    Does anyone know what the part pictured below is called, or what the part number is? I bought the car in October and only just noticed its missing. Shows how often I have people in the back of my car. (Not my door, image used for illustrative purposes only).

    The auto with start/stop I had did exactly what you said. However, when you lifted the brake to beginning moving (and restart the engine) it applied the brake automatically (like HSA) until you started moving off with the accelerator.

    New MOT Rules Today

    Had my MOT the day before it was due to change. Got the new style MOT certificate though with three "Monitor and repair if necessary (advisories)" notices: Offside front shock absorber has a light misting of oil Offside front tyre worn close to the legal limit Nearside front tyre worn close to the legal limit Quite like the new style of MOT cert.
