      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. Headlight mount broken

    Cheers for the suggestions, will give plastic welding a try. Will do a test run with some other bits of plastic so I can get an idea of the best way to do it.
  2. Headlight mount broken

    I'm going to have a go at gluing it when I next get a day off, as where it has broken it doesn't look like there will be room to drill. Thanks for the advice :)
  3. Headlight mount broken

    The broken part is the piece of plastic at the front of the unit that attaches the unit to a solid part of the engine bay. Currently it is only held in place at the front, by a push stud that fits in a rather flexible part of the car. There is a screw at the other end of the unit that is fine. However the whole headlight does move slightly, whereas the other headlight doesn't move.
  4. Headlight mount broken

    hmmm, thought as much :( guess it's not fixable, and probably expensive then.
  5. Hi all, Have been trying to change bulbs in my fiesta mk8 vignale to whiter bulbs. Main beam was easy to change, but the dipped in the projectors is a nightmare. Followed the vague instructions in the manual for removing the headlight unit and could not get them out. Having given up till another day, when ***** the front mount back on, I noticed that it had broke (must have leant on it at some point...), so it is only the rear screw mount and then plastic clip holding the headlight at the front (and the foil tape that I put on) Am I right in guessing I'll need a new headlight? Thanks in advance
  6. Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    Ah, that explains why I had my Vignale delivered on the 11th. When I ordered back on August, the thinkford website (now baronsgroup) had the Vignale as 'Coming in 2018', looking like they accidentally guessed right.
  7. Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    Yes, unfortunately it was. It has full leather seats etc. It was after the original build date had passed and I went to my dealer to see what was going on, and both the Vignale's that he had sold until then, simply vanished off the system with no explanation. I came here and found out the reasons.
  8. Mk8 Delivery Delays?

    I ordered a Fiesta Vignale (all extras except 18" alloys and CD player), 4th August 2017, first build date was cancelled (22 September). In December was given a new build date of 21st December. Dealer phoned on 2nd January to say the car is built and awaiting shipping. On the on 8th January I got a phone call from my dealer saying a car transporter has just arrived and my car is on it! Will be picking it up on Thursday, all being well.
  9. Hi, have been lurking since September, came here originally to find info on the 2017 Fiesta delivery delays. I currently own a 2012 Focus Titanium X diesel, and downsizing to a Fiesta very very soon. Previous cars were - 1986 Fiat Uno (903cc), 1984 Renault 5 1.1, 1992 Rover 216Sli and a 2002 Nissan Almera 1.5. (all petrol)
