  1. Yeah Tapatalk still can't see pictures (except for in the thread preview), but it does allow you to upload them. I'm using Chrome on my Samsung Galaxy and everything seems fine. I've never used any of the built-in Samsung apps. They're all disabled and replaced with better apps from Google...
  2. I jest of course, but the Focus and Fiesta forums have 100 times as many posts between them as the C-Max forum. The Focus and Fiesta are very popular cars, and owners are more likely to join FOC to discuss their enthusiasm for them than perhaps C-Max owners who are more likely to post only when they have an issue. With less enthusiasts (and therefore experience) on the forum it's unsurprising that many of the threads go unanswered...
  3. What's a C-Max? 😉 Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk
  4. Nope - I have 2 young kids so watching the qualifying and race live is a distant memory. Channel 4 highlights are just fine for me...
  5. It's the start of the F1 season and I have new socks... Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk
  6. I'm planning to do my own brakes. It's about the only job that doesn't require ramps... Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk EDIT: Just noticed this is in the Ford Edge subforum but I'm assuming the same applies.
  7. Well in that case I would avoid that garage in future. It's important to be able to trust them (both not to rip you off and to do a good job). Personally I take my cars for service knowing exactly what I'm expecting to be done and also the last time things like the cambelt were changed. You can definitely help yourself by being informed too. It just takes a quick look through the paperwork and manual yourself. Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk
  8. Welcome. The battery could die at any time so even if they didn't check it properly that's really a non-starter I would have thought (no pun intended). How do you know they didn't replace the brake light switch, and what do you mean when you say they tried to replace the cambelt twice? Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk
  9. I take it back. A Peron-tuned Fiesta ST pulled up next to me at the lights today. Looked good in white with a bigger spoiler and diffuser. Unfortunately the driver lost any respect by undertaking everyone in the bus lane and the tailgating the cars further ahead. [emoji107] Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk
  10. That's interesting - I hadn't realised they change tyre pressures to help meet emissions. By my school of thought tyre pressures should be set for maximum grip and also even tyre wear! Fit more efficient tyres to meet emissions sure but don't overinflate? Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk
  11. For future reference, as we're not in the Fiesta sub-forum, these are the recommended Fiesta tyre pressures for the whole range from the 2016 manual that came with my ST...
  12. If it helps, here's what's written in my manual (the 1.6L Ecoboost entry certainly matches what's on the sticker on my ST). Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk
  13. Totally depends on the model / tyre size. My Fiesta ST is 36F/26R on the stock 205/40/R17 Bridgestone Potenzas. Out of interest I just tried some of the online tyre pressure calculators and they all came back with incorrect values... Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk
  14. Go with what's written on the car. Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk
  15. To be fair you don't see many on the road (I'm not sure you did even when they were current either). Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk
  16. Thanks. The wheels are the standard 17" ST wheels but in the Style Pack grey.
  17. I'm sure he didn't mean you Ian! 😂 I don't get it. At a main dealer service you would normally get an invoice stating the work carried out and the parts/materials used. So for example, the last service my ST had was it's 2nd year service (from the previous owner) and it states that the work carried out was indeed a 2nd year service with oil, oil filter and air filter included on the parts/materials list. What does your invoice say?
  18. I suppose it could have been down to my Winter driving style...
  19. An essential item for the glovebox: https://www.autoglym.com/bird-dropping-wipes And don't get me started on the positioning of my neighbour's bird box (again)...
  20. Oh yeah, you've reminded me of the rant I meant to post last week about a truly amazing filling station visit... Firstly the bloke in the van in front of me parked at the pump and did his shopping WITHOUT EVEN BUYING ANY PETROL, and secondly after queuing behind a car to leave the petrol station forecourt I finally realise she's actually stopped on the double yellow lines at the junction with the main road (blocking the view of oncoming traffic) TO EAT A SANDWICH!
  21. (Fiesta) ST drivers then 😉
  22. Better than the other way round... Sent from my SM-G900F using Tapatalk
