  1. Hi All I'm new to your forum and would like assistance identifying my vehicle for insurance purposes. I guessed and went for Ford Focus Ghia (100) 1596cc as this matched the Model and Year (05/55). Insurance sites and Halfords etc do not recognise the vehicle registration number so I must enter manually the vehicle spec. I wrote to DVLA to have V5 checked but never received a reply!? The V5 is incomplete and states: Make: Ford Type: Variant - HXD1S & Version - SABALD Model: (No information entered in this field) Body: 5 Door Hatch CC: 1596 Fuel: Petrol I'd be grateful for any information and a method to have V5 updated as I'd hate to have an accident and then find I'm not insured albeit unlikely. Many Thanks

  4. 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 :)
  5. 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.
  6. Hi I recently took my car (UK FORD FOCUS TD 1.8 2001 MODEL - Diesel 51 Reg) to a local garage for just an oil change. After I got the car back I noticed a strange screeching noise that wasn't there before. The noise only appears when the car has warmed up with the temperature gauge in the middle of hot and cold. It is not there until the car has been driven for about 10 - 15 mins. I took it back to the garage who checked it over and said they could not find any problems apart from a slightly loose air pipe clip which they told me should fix the problem, however once the engine was warm again the noise returned. The noise is more noticeable when the accelerator is pressed and the car revved. The best way to describe the noise is it sounds very like the noise a car makes when reversing, that kind of screeching sound but not as high pitched. It's not constant only when revs go up or accelerator is pressed. It seems to get louder as the car is driven for longer. If i sit in my car after it is warm and then rev my car the screeching noise appears. Does any body have any ideas? It's not a fan belt screeching but a different kind of sound almost like a vacuum cleaner noise...sorry hard to explain! The mechanics listened to it but couldn't pin point where it was coming from. On another note the same garage has just replaced my water pump, and drive and alternator belts etc due to a chirping, squeaking noise when engine was cold...this was when they told me the screeching noise caused by the earlier oil change may of been fixed by a lose air pipe clip but sadly it hasnt. Could it be a faulty oil filter? or even wrong oil? Though wrong oil seems unlikely perhaps a faulty oil filter, could this cause a noise when engine is warm? As mentioned there is no noise until car gets warm after 10 - 15 mins. Apart from the noise the car seems to run fine though the noise is very annoying as it is quite loud. Any advice would be helpful, hope I haven't rambled too much on my first post! TYI Darren
  7. 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.
  8. Hello! I am new here, and a newish owner of a Ford KA 2014 (63 Plate) I am due to take it back to the dealer on 15th June because a few days after taking delivery (end of May 18) while the windows were wound up and the music was turned down, I noticed a horrible creak when taking foot off the clutch and the car started to drive off. I also noticed that from 1st - 2nd gear change, there is a subtle but horrible creak/squeak which all sounds like its coming from the drivers side. Can't tell if its suspension related or to do with the bushes or whatever. While on the test drive, we drove over a nasty pot hole and I am wondering if this could be something to do with it. The car had a Pre Sales Inspection a few weeks before I even test drove it, but did not have a PDI check (which I found odd) so I am assuming that IF that pot hole has been the cause, it may have caused damage. I would be so grateful if anyone could shed any light? And finally - IF there is an issue, am I at liberty to pay the bill, seeing as I have literally had the car for 2 weeks and reported this 4 days after picking up the car? Or should they repair the car at their cost? Thanks in advance for all your feedback 🙂

    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!
  10. I have a 2009 ford fiesta titanium. I was involved in an accident and the car was returned from the panel beaters with Bluetooth, USB and AUX not working. CD and radio work perfectly besides all of the other features. If any of you have experienced this problem before or know how to fix this it would be a great help! Wondering if it's not the bluetooth module that is broken?

    Ford Fiesta Ghia Tdci 2006

    Hi looking for some technical advice here. My Ford Fiesta Ghia wont start, I’m a learner driver so this car isn’t in frequent use. The battery started to go flat and after jump starting it everything appeared to be fine. After starting it everyday for a week to check that the battery wasn’t going flat, one day the car wouldn’t start at all. Initially, we believed the cause to be the battery. After buying a brand new one and installing, the car still won’t Crank and start. The radio lights etc come on and work, but when turning the key there is nothing there at all. can anyone offer some guidance? This is my first car and am stressed about having a huge garage bill. It would be useful if anyone could suggest some things to try to at least rule out some possible faults. Thanks in advance
  12. Hello, I'm not much of a car expert but a friend of mine has noticed that a part holding a hose from my turbo is missing, They've said that it was keeping the heat of the turbo away from the hose and that it's crucial to have, I've visited Ford parts to which the employee has said to get the part that I want I'd need to buy a new turbo, I'm looking for a simple clip that is attached to the turbo and holding the hose, is it true that it's a crucial part and where can I find one? picture below. (Sorry for the bad quality in advance!)

    Driving the road to nowhere

    Rising to over 1,800 metres above sea level, the road from the town of Guarcino to the ski resort at Campocatino bustles with snow-lovers during winter months. However, for the rest of the year Via Campocatino is a barely used mountain road just 80 kilometres east of Rome that’s made for driving. “Stock up with Amaretti biscuits in Guarcino – one of Italy’s oldest towns – and prepare for a very twisty, very challenging drive to the top” said journalist Steve Sutcliffe, who ventured there in our new Ford Fiesta ST for the latest film in Ford’s ‘Europe’s Greatest Driving Roads’ series. Reach the top and views of the Monti Velino nature reserves in the north, and the mountain ranges of Lazio to the south-east can be found. Rome itself can be seen to the north-west. “If you’re there on a cloudless evening the sky will be awash with stars; you even pass an astrological observatory on the way to the top that collaborates with observatories from around the world tracking asteroids, that’s how little light pollution there is here” added Sutcliffe. This is the eighth film in the series which has seen Sutcliffe drive everything in the Ford Performance catalogue, from Ford GT supercar across the stunning Atlantic Ocean Road in Norway to a Focus RS across Blakey Ridge in North Yorkshire, UK. As the first Italian road to be featured, the stunning Via Campocatino scored a maximum ten out of ten for scenery and thrill factor, with an overall score of 53 out of 60, the joint fourth highest of the series. To experience other great European roads, head to this YouTube playlist, found here.
  14. Morning all I am the current, and proud owner of a 2007 Ford Focus Zetec Climate 3-door hatchback 1.6 petrol. It has 93 on the clock and I've wanted a Zetec S for a long time. After reading that the Zetec S models are only cosmetic upgrades and without performance upgrades, I looked into an ST instead. First, a 2007 to basically upgrade the car I have now to it's top end sport variant (07 or 57 plate, would have preferred 57 but wouldn't have been a major - but did read that these models that were registered a bit later had a few less issues). I scrapped the idea and thought I'd go for something newer. I like the newer shape Zetec S also - 2012 to 2015. The 2014 is stunning and looks amazing in that, is it Midnight Blue paint job. I have come across a 2012 Zetec S 1.0. 85 on the clock but been assured of the full Ford Service History that comes with it. I always research a car's MOT History if I am interested in it and this hasn't failed any. I have done extensive searches on Ford's 1.0 Ecoboost Engine to check reviews and reliability. I don't tend to drive like an idiot and really look after my cars. But, as a realist, I also know that can't always prevent problems. I am wondering if anybody has any horror stories - or - glory, feel good stories about this particular car. Any reasons I should steer clear or follow my stupid, car enthusiast (Focuses really 😉), stubborn heart and go for it. Thank you. Focused87
  15. Hello everyone! Really hope this is the place to ask this question! I’m a first time driver and I recently bought a Ford Fiesta Zetec climate 2008 I was driving home late at night and I was about to stall as I was in third gear and slow down dramatically when the car just went to bit mad! I managed to get it on video but unfortunately it’s dark but hopefully someone might be able to tell me what’s going on! Recently just had a full-service and the map sensor has just been replaced! any help is really appreciated thank you Kieran p.s File is too big so I Put it on YouTube.
  16. Hi all, In a similar style to the MK1 Focus thread I started yesterday I am also looking for common problems on MK2 Focus models. I will also be looking to eventually put together a buyers guide for these models so any feedback you could give would be much appreciated! :) James
  17. Just a quick question… does anyone have a Ford Mondeo 2015 or newer (new shape)?? My car listed above has a tyre pressure monitor on it, I have inflated it a few times but every week now it goes off saying the pressure is low (but not flat). I have topped it up according to the manual for the bar/PSI and reset the monitor, give it a week, same thing. Not sure if I have a slow puncture and the tyre monitor doesn’t give individual tyre pressure readings (it’s all or nothing), just wondering if anyone else had the same issue? Don’t really want to go to Kwik Fit for them to tell me there is nothing wrong….
  18. Hi guys :) I've got problem with my Fiesta MK6 2002 1.4 16V. I bought the car in Sep 2017. In December I was on full service with it and everything was fine. Yesterday I've checked oil and it was below minimum I did about 5000 miles only since December and all oil burned it that time. I know it shouldn't be like that so I read some articles in the internet and many of them says that it can be PCV, crankcase etc. So I checked today the small pipe which is coming form air filter box straight to the engine but it looks clear, one thing which was really dirty was small sponge (filter)(see pictures) in air filter box in this place where the small pipe going from to the engine. Also oil is very dark, yesterday I topped up oil and did about 15 miles since that time and today oil was almost black (see pictures). Do you know guys what can be wrong? And where are PCV and crankcase breather in my car and how to check it?
  19. hello, i currently have a 1.6 tdci, its remapped and has a k&n airfilter on and a straight pipe exhaust (still has decat) i believe its on the round about 136+ mark but dont have a solid number as never dyno'ed it, i want to upgrade my turbo to a hybrid turbo but i want to know if anyone else has advice etc on it and can point me to right parts to upgrade and prices etc please ?
  20. Hey! I have a Cobra sport Cat Back for the fiesta 1.0 ecoboost for sale if anyone is interested? It was on my car for about 3 weeks until I put my car back to stock to pick up an ST 😜 I believe I have all the gaskets and bolts for fitting, open to offers if anyone is interested? In pristine condition!
  21. Hi guys I've got a 2015 Ford Fiesta Zetec 1.25 ltr and for the past month or so I've noticed the steering doesn't feel as light as it used to when I got it in June last year. There was one day a few weeks ago where it felt as light as it used to and it was great. I've put over 12000 miles on this car but not really sure what I can do? Any help?

    Hello!

    Hello all, I'm picking up a 2013 Zetec S next Thursday. It's got just over 12,000 miles on the clock! I currently own a Honda Civic Type R & i've never owned a Ford before. I've bought the 115bhp 1.6 Diesel because I do over 300 miles a week and believe me, in a Type R that is completely unbearable and extremely expensive. I also like the look of the Mk3's with the Zetec S body kit, my cup of tea. Plus I've heard the modern Focus's are very much at home on dual carriageways & motorways. I've already found the forum very useful and I'm grateful for those who have helped with the few queries I have had. Any further advice/tips is genuinely greatly appreciated. Sam :-)
  23.

Many Thanks Current Radio : Radio i want to purchase? :

    Speed limiter opinions

    Hi, all I recently picked up my new Fiesta Mk8 st line 140ps. I have been playing with the speed limiter on it as I've never used one before or a cruise control. I just wondered what anyone else thought about it? I am finding is strange when you are going down hill or up hill. Seems like such hard work for it and could be causing more bad than good. On a straight road with it set at 40, 50 or 60mph it seems brilliant. Eith great fuel economy around 60mpg showing on the computer Does anyone else use it regularly or have any tips on how to get the best out of it?

    Ford Focus mk1 wanted

    Hello, been a Ford Focus mk1 enthusiast for very long . I am interested in a well looked after example. Not very particular about cosmetic damages . Just need a sound mechanical example. Preferably a 1.6 Petrol and I live in the East Midlands. Max budget is £500. Cheers
