  1. Hello all, First post here. I recently bought a 2013 1.0l ecoboost fiesta that has full service history and one previous owner. 33k miles on the clock. I've noticed some rust and corrosion on some of the engine parts, specifically two metal connectors that seem to go from the coolant pipe to the engine and then also possibly to the radiator (?) Should i get these replaced? Would it be a fairly cheap part replacement? Any advice would be appreciated. Cheers. Cameron.
  2. I've my current Fiesta Zetec 1.4 TDCi for 8 years now -- it's a 3-door model as when I bought it my dad had a Motability car (due to my sister having autism and learning difficulties). Unfortunately a brain haemorrhage cost him his licence in 2012 leaving me as the only driver in the family, and my current car isn't very practical when my sister comes out with us (even though she's only 4'10"!). My annual service/MOT last month also revealed an axle problem that could require an expensive and time-consuming repair in the near future, so I'm looking to replace it with a new 5-door model. I've been driving Fords for 17 years now with no major problems so I see no real reason to change manufacturers, but I'm torn on which model to go for: my mam likes the look of the EcoSport, but after reading so many bad reviews I'm wary of this model. Personally I'd rather stick with a Fiesta, although I'd have no issue in meeting her halfway by going for the Active model. I do roughly 13,000 miles per year, the vast majority of which is my commute to work in Newcastle, although I also take my mam for shopping (with my sister sometimes coming with us for a look out) on Saturdays. Every 2 or 3 weeks are so we get a big shop that currently requires some bags go on the back seat (or on the floor behind my seat). I'm also still not quite decided on whether to go for petrol or diesel although I see an increasing consensus that a mileage like mine is no longer quite enough to justify diesel – the new 1.0 Ecoboost petrol engine, road tax changes, and the prospect of Low Emission Zones and diesel tax hikes in the near future are all factors that have change in petrol's favour since 2010. I'd be interested in what thoughts the regulars here have concerning my dilemma... George
  3. Hi guys, in a bit of a predicament. Havent had this car long, but its been mapled for efficiency, not long after buying it it started coming up with an error pointing to the glow plugs, weve replaced them, codes cleared but error still appearing, wiring checked and tested. Not sure where to look next.... any ideas?
  4. Hi guys Welcome to my progress thread! Well, my old mk6.5 was written off unfortunately and my friend who works for Ford recommended the new Zetec S to me, and after a few weeks of looking around I decided it was the sensible choice for me. I picked up my Panther Black Zetec S from a Ford garage on the 31st of October, it's the 1.0 Ecoboost 125ps, 1 Owner from new, 6,471 miles, one service on it and there extras consist of; Privacy glass, Upgraded 17" alloys, City Pack and Start/Stop pack. It was one of the ford guy's girlfriends car, only sold it back to them because they got an upgrade because of his job, so something nice and legit, and no dodgy reasons! I don't have a proper list of what I want to do just yet, but a Stage 1 Revo remap and new exhaust system is on the cards. But for now I'll just be adding bits on here and there but will be sure to post about it! Ordered a pack of LED's last night so hopefully they're going to turn up some point this week. Here are some of the photos the day I officially bought her! And the day after, picking her up! Couldn't quite believe how clean it was... Thanks for reading :)
  5. Hi, I have a 5 door 2003 Fiesta(1.4 tdci) which all windows are manual. The front passenger window regulator cable has rusted and snapped, I can't find any replacement parts for this specific door locally or online. Does anybody know whether the front and rear window regulators are the same on a 5 door all manual windows model? Rear window regulators are more common and it would handy to be able to use one in the front. Cheers.

    Hey everyone!

    Hi everyone! I've just bought my first car which is a 5 - Door 2010 Ford Fiesta Edge in Metallic Vision Blue. I love to go out for drives with friends to nice chill out spots, and check out other people's cars at car shows.
  7. 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
  8. Hi, I've recently bought a Ford Fiesta 2009 (I think it's May) I cannot get my audio bluetooth to play Spotify. The car recognises the phone (through the bluetooth audio function) and Spotify recognizes that it should be playing through 'Ford Audio' but nothing comes out of the car speakers. I've researched and know that some models don't have 'Sync' and also some models require a fuse box adjustment, but I thought I'd ask here first. Thank you :)

    Fiesta '07 Oil Leak

    Hi, I have a slow Oil Leak and I'm no expert on the underside of a car. I've attached a photo showing where the leak is dripping from. Can someone confirm what this is? Thanks
  10. When I turn the steering wheel on my 60 reg Fiesta automatic there is a strange undulating sensation under the carpet in the drivers footwell, is this a problem - should I be worried, it's certainly weird? I imagined under the carpet lining there would be steel floor.
  11. This is a re-post of my [now deleted] post on the General chat, titled: 'I'm driving around the world/Social media advice needed' from January 11th 2018. Due to lackadaisical typing I noticed several typos I couldn't go back and edit and before the post gained any more views I figured it would be best to re-post and move category. Instagram: @drive_further Facebook page: drive_further My story so far: I write this in part as you guys may be interested in my achievements which I haven't really publicised - for no other reason than the fact I'm travelling for my own personal experience. In 2016 I left England on what so far has been a 2 year road trip across the northern hemisphere (with a brief visit to west-coast America whilst I applied for Central Asian visas) in my 2002 Ford Fiesta. I've driven to date over 25,000 miles and explored countries such as Kosovo, Bosnia, Albania, Russia, Georgia ... In late 2016 I visited the northern Russian city of Murmansk experiencing temperatures as low as -22 and my car was fine! In the coming days I will cross the Ural river, the geographical feature separating Asia and Europe; and and arrive for the first time in the continent of Asia. I've severely neglected social media ad wasn't sure how best to 'advertise' my travels, I simply thought someone may be interested. I'm not looking for fame, simply, I have accumulated so many interesting stories, both car and non car related, along with tens of thousands of DSLR photos and 'car selfies.' I just thought as my story is perhaps unusual and in a Ford Fiesta someone/you all may be interested.
  12. Evening people, My names Ben and here’s a little bit about what bought me here. Bought my white st180 on a 17 plate with 5900 miles on the clock on Saturday and picking her up on Wednesday, I can’t wait.. Having come from a BMW 3 series Msport I’m looking forward to a reliable nippy daily. Am seriously considering some light modifications but want to make sure she won’t go walkies first, so security upgrades are my no.1 priority. Looking forward to becoming part of the community!
  13. Can any one help me with modifying my car? I'm pretty new to this and seems to me you can't really do them up really unless you have the zetec s any help would be much appreciated.

    Zetec S > St Calipers

    Hello, I have a 2010 1.6 Tivct Fiesta, I have been told that ST calipers are a straight fit, but which ST, MK7 or mk6? If anyone knows the part numbers that would help Thanks,
  16. Hi all, unsure if if this is the right sub section of the forum but here goes........ Struggling with the above sub install in my mk 7.5 fiesta. I went with Paramanic’s guide as follows: ...........and ended up with this: https://m.imgur.com/gallery/9NHSv61 when I try to launch everything is fine but volume stuck at zero. Sub has power (blue light on controller). Also worth noting if I use the WAMO clips to revert back to normal it all works fine again on the stock system. I tried first without the WAMO clips, I.e. bullet connectors per Paramanic’s guide and then with them........ same thing happens either way. At a complete loss for why this won’t work for me, any ideas? worth noting I accidentally cut the wrong of two white/browns — one has a thick (wrong) and the other a thin (correct) brown line........... assume not an issue because it all works fine if I revert to stock wiring as mentioned . any suggestions?
  17. have recently bought an 05 fiesta flame however the radio fitted is the triple dash radio without an aux. i’ve read on the internet it’s tricky if at all possible to fit an aux with this radio and i don’t want the faff of the transmitters. want a simple plug in aux input. any suggestions or help appreciated as this is my first car
  18. I have booked my car into a garage for a full service and cambelt change, they said the water pump doesn't need changing as it ain't run on the same belt. I have had a quick look around and some people are saying change it and other say it wont hurt, any advice?

    Help???

    Hi all, can someone please tell me what this pipe is? It's missing from mine. I have a Ford Fiesta 1.4 Zetec (2005 reg). Thanks in advance!
  20. I have just had a new windscreen fitted to my Ford Fiesta Mk3 F/1989 Ghia Low Series spec and it happens to be heated. I would like to add the switch to the blanked-off hole in the dash and use it! Of the four gaps I have, the rear heated windscreen and rear fog lights occupy two; same for the front are not present and blanked-off. I have checked and the relay socket with a mass of wiring to/from it is present though the relay itself is missing. The two 30 amp fuse holders (simply slotted beside the fuse box) and fuses are missing but would be easy to add as would the wiring to/from it. I do not know if the dash switch wiring is present. Has anyone added a functioning heated front window post-factory to any Mk3? My questions are: 1. Is the wiring/ plug for the dash switch present but tucked away somewhere behind the dash? 2. I cannot see wiring to the windscreen or either side of the two missing fuse carriers. Are they present but tucked away? I watched the screen being fitted and the +ve and -ve terminals are accessible. 3. Where can I buy the Ford heated windscreen dash switch (push button with light), the two fuse holders and the relay? 4. Any other tips? Thank you

    Zetec Blue update

    Took this photo today in snowy Scotland. Current changes (visible in photos); gloss black upper/lower front grilles, ZS/ST fog light surrounds, chrome grille, de-tangoed lights, xenon halogen bulbs, richbrook aerial, wind deflectors, anthracite powdercoated alloys, aero wiper blades. Also you can’t see in this; rear chrome tailgate strip, LED number plate lights, interior map lights, black leather gear gaiter/handbrake surround with blue stitching, original floor mats. Next up (potentially!); Seat Ibiza side repeaters, rear window tints, fit Vodafone flush rear parking sensor kit, mudflaps, replace driver door mirror (the common clicking when folding problem), DAB radio, ZS/ST silver interior door grab handles, silver door handles, LED map lights, some interior ambient lighting. Think that’s all for now, but any suggestions welcome! I’m very OEM-like, as you may have guessed.
  22. Hi everyone, I've been having a problem with my Fiesta Zetec. Ever since I slid on some black ice and hit a kerb there is a knocking coming from the front driver side when braking, I can also feel it a bit in the brake pedal. The repetition matches the speed of the car/spin of the wheel and as I'm coming to a stop it will sound more like a creaking. It doesn't happen when I start driving, only after about 5-10 mins and also doesn't happen when braking hard. Brakes and discs have been changed since and also front tyres. Took it to ford and they said it was anti roll bar bushes, they changed them but it still happens. Took it back and they stripped down the front driver side and looked at everything, they said they couldn't find anything. Anyone had this problem and if so has it been fixed?
  23. Hi! Still wondering what has been done to my car... Is this a normal 2015 Fiesta look? 1) seatbelt 2) at passanger's feet 3) front windscreen 4) fender/body 5) rear windscreen (previously I couldn't see those carvings) 6) I remember trunk light being placed differently 7) rear archs with tar paper - ???

    Fitting ST Recaro seats

    Hi, I am considering buying a set of Molten Orange Recaro seats from a 15 plate st to fit into my Red Edition Fiesta. Before making the purchase I wanted to check how easy it will be to do the swap. I am assuming the connectors will be the same for both seats and they should be a straight fit? Also would it be possible to keep the heated seat functionality? Much Appreciated, Stephen
  25. So I'm new here, I'm sorry if I offend people with how little I know about cars etc... anyway, tomorrow I collect my Fiesta Titanium with 125bhp 2014 plate. I am looking to spice the car up a little bit but unsure on what to do with it (suggestions greatly appreciated) and how to do some things - hence the forum post. I am not looking to make this car into an ST with 280bhp or anything like that, I just want to make the car look a little bit more visually pleasing and maybe add a stage 1 map. (The car is a 5door due to me needing the space for work as I carry around a lot of gear). Anyway. The things I have considered doing so far: -Halo ring lights from autobeam, any good? Worth the money? Easy to install or hard? -Upgrade the alloys to maybe some ST alloys or third party ones -Rear windows are already tinted however I would like to tint the front ones as well -Sunstrip on the windscreen -Wind deflectors -Paint the calipers, maybe upgrade the brakes after I have had the alloys fitted -Stage 1 map, was thinking of going to AET Motorsport? Any reviews? Advice? -Induction kit? (Don't really know much about it but it looks very good and am slowly researching a bit more -Upgraded bulbs - Looking to fit some osram H7 and H1 bulbs -TRC Front splitter - will this fit my car or will I need added parts to be able to fit it? Anything else you would reccomend that I haven't thought of? As I say these are just ideas for now. Not looking for anything ridiculously mad for performance wise just more visually! Thanks.
