    Dashboard lights

    Hi I have a Fiesta ecoboost 12 plate and because it has daytime running lights the dashboard is always lit. As a result I sometimes initially forget to turn my lights on when driving at night, it's a bit frustrating. Is there anything I can do about this? I suspect not! Thanks Caroline

    Your car looks immaculate Zain611! You must valet it every week? I'm definitely not a Ford enthusiast as the inside of my car has not been cleaned for 8 months 😱. I'm using my Tennis Elbow as an excuse, ***** painful!

    Good point TomsFocus! I hadn't thought of that

    Thanks Tim, I have Autoglym shampoo so I'll try that - only thing is I wondered whether I would then have to clean the whole seat 🤔 I'll check out that other product you recommend too. Happy Christmas!

    Fiesta car seat cover recommendations

    I definitely don't need to get them all cleaned as it's literally just a few small drops on the edge of the drivers seat but I just want to prevent them getting more stains. caroline
  7. Hi I have a 2012 Ford Fiesta Ecoboost 1.0 which I bought 8 months ago and I've just noticed a few stains on the edge of the seats which I imagine are raindrops. I want to get some car seat covers but want to make sure I get ones that fit properly. Does anyone have any recommendations please? Thanks Caroline

    Plastic side vent has come off

    Hi B0D0 I tried putting it back but it's so loose that it just falls out again even though it isn't broken. Bit odd! Caroline

    Plastic side vent has come off

    Good suggestion although I'm not sure I can do that as it's basically a hole with a vent covering it. I'll take another look at it. Cheers
  11. Hi there Today I found a small plastic vent in the passenger footwell of my Fiesta 2012 ecoboost. It is meant to be attached to the side of dashboard - you can only see it when you open the front door. I think they are blowers for the windscreen. Does anyone know how they are meant to be attached? It is not broken but I can't see any adhesive on the dashboard cutout where it was once attached. Is it ok to just glue them in because the drivers side one is loose. Cheers

    Focus 1.0 ecoboost problems

    Poor you! This won’t be of much help as I own a Fiesta but when I bought it 6 months ago (2012 plate) the garage did emphasise that the engine must have the ‘expensive’ oil when it’s serviced. I didn’t ask why though...

    Stop Start on Fiesta 1.0 Ecoboost 2012

    Thanks for the advice guys! My opinion is S/S is rubbish in that case 🤣. I've seen that the batteries for the Fiesta are about £200?!! I'm just going to keep on driving until I notice any electrical problems.

    Stop Start on Fiesta 1.0 Ecoboost 2012

    Hi pragmatix Thanks for your reply. I thought that might be it. Unfortunately I didn't know when I bought the car that the battery was going to cost a lot more money to replace. My garage have quoted me £66 to run diagnostic tests (this includes 1 hrs labour). If I'm not bothered about the SS not working do you think it's ok to keep driving as it is? Cheers
  15. Hello I bought a 2nd hand Fiesta Ecoboost 1.0 2012 about 6 months ago and the stop/start was working as it should do. Over the past week or so it seems to have suddenly stopped working; there's no warning light on, the a/c isn't on and I can't work out why it would suddenly stop working. One thing is that I only do short trips (6 mile round trip) every day but that has not been a problem before. I'm not bothered about it really but I'm not sure whether it matters if it isn't working (eg is it doing any damage?). Any advice would be very helpful. Thanks
