  1. Hi all, Currently have 15 inch standard alloys on my Fiesta, but wanting to put 17 inch Momo Revenge wheels on instead. Would I need to recalibrate my speedometer? Is this easy to do or would it be a trip to the garage? Thank you, Han
  2. You can tell I'm a novice! Thanks for that info. The colour has proven to be a pain in the backside really, cost of buying parts and then having to have them sprayed on top soon adds up 😞 if I hadn't been desperate for a new car at the time I bought her, I probably would have hung on until I could find a ZS in Midnight Sky rather than doing it this way, but never mind!
  3. Thank you so much for your advice. I do want to get the rest of the body kit eventually, but trying to find parts in 'Midnight Sky' is proving to be a bit of a nightmare, unfortunately! It seems they did not make many Zetec S' in that colour, especially facelift. I was planning on getting a new exhaust tip so that should deal with the hole in the diffuser issue.
  4. Hello, I'm hoping somebody can correctly advise me. I have a bog-standard 2013 MK7 Facelift Fiesta Zetec and I'm hoping to get into modifying her in the next couple of months. I want to put a different diffuser on the rear, either from an ST line or an ST, because A) my current one is boring and B) it has a big scuff mark from somebody in a car park that I cannot get rid of. I've been told I need to buy 'rear spats'. Could somebody please explain/answer these questions, please? There is a listing for spats with a Zetec S diffuser for £65 locally, which I could tigerseal onto my original bumper, or would I better buying a whole new Zetec S bumper and then just changing the diffuser? Is it an easy swap? I have attached a photo of my current rear bumper for reference. I'm a bit of a novice when it comes to things like this, but I'm hoping to learn. Any helpful advice (beyond "you should have just bought a Zetec S") would be much appreciated! Thank you, Han
  5. Thank you for all the helpful suggestions, will be giving it a go at the weekend. Other half has told me not to bother because the buttons still work on the radio but that isn't the point - if the car comes with steering wheel controls, I should be able to use them!
  6. I tried this and it worked for a week or two but now doesn't respond no matter how hard I press.
  7. Thank you so much - bit scared of it blowing up in my face so I may just take it to my uncle instead. But thank you, these instructions will definitely help him!
  8. Hi all, I've just used the search bar and had a quick skim read of the posts in the Fiesta forum and I cannot see this topic mentioned so please forgive me if it's one that has been posted about a lot; I feel like it has. I have had a 63 plate Fiesta Zetec S since the beginning of November and in the last couple of weeks, my volume and change track steering wheel controls have been working on some journeys and not on others. Now they seem to have packed in all together! Is this just a case of loose connections or poor wiring? I'm a bit of a novice and afraid to go tinkering around. I could take it to my local Ford garage but I don't want to pay a ridiculous amount of money for something I could ask a car savvy member of the family to look at. I bought the car from a Perry's dealership and paid for a 12 month warranty but I don't think it covers electric faults, just mechanical ones. Thank you in advance! Han
  9. Well luckily I haven't lost anything down mine yet, but I know it is inevitable as I am quite a clumsy person and a prevention is better than a cure!
  10. It's a shame they don't make one for those of us with the cupholders instead of the armrest.
  11. Hi! I would just like to introduce myself to you all as a proud new owner of a Ford. My name is Hannah and I just bought a 63 plate Ford Fiesta, painted in Midnight Sky, and I love it. It's one of the nicest cars I've had the pleasure of driving and the features it has are a massive upgrade from my 2005 Nissan Micra. My only query thus far is aimed at my fellow Fiesta owners: what have you done about the pesky handbrake hole? I look forward to joining in with future forum posts! Hannah x
