    Light upgrades

    I’m thinking about changing my stock bulbs. I’ve seen a lot online about LED replacements. Are these a good upgrade or are super bright “normal” bulbs just as good? Also drove a c-max courtesy car the other day and the footwell lights stayed on. How do you make the Focus mk2.5 footwell lights stay on? Cheers
  2. I've had the car about 4 years & not really done much to it other than an EGR blank & servicing (until this week). This week I decided it was time for a change, below is a list of what I've got done so far in the last 3 days: Wrapped as much of the front interior as I can (easier said than done for some parts) so that's: The 4 satin steel steering wheel trims Single DIN head unit fascia Upper centre console Gearshift fascia Handbrake fascia Foot well lower trims Lower centre console including the rear "cubby hole" Fitted a single DIN Sony head unit with Bluetooth Fitted the external mic & route the cable out of sight Fitted a new chrome & leather gearshift gaiter & surround Replaced the tatty black gear knob with a nice silver one from a Mondeo Replaced all the accessible interior lighting with "white" LEDs Replaced the number plate bulbs with "white" LEDs (integrated resistors because the previous set flickered like a B**CH) Replaced the brake & reverse lights with CREEs (hint the reverse lights now illuminate the kerbside like sidelights which makes parallel parking/reversing at night without clouting the alloys a whole lot easier) Replaced the main beam & side lights with nice "white" ones (side lights are LED) Replaced the single light bulb in the glovebox Replaced the single light blun in the boot with 3 "white" LED pads (I had to wire resistors to ensure there was enough load to stop them flickering, so they're not a bright as they were originally but at least now they won't give someone a epileptic fit!) Unfortunately I didn't think to take "before" photos although I'm sure everyone here knows what the inside of a MK2 looks like & how crap the standard "yellow" interior lighting is along with "real" wood effect plastic trim!! To get a bit of practice with the wrapping I bought some unbranded (cheap) carbon wrap on ebay & had 4 goes at the centre console before I was happy that I'd got half an idea what I was doing. From Friday night onwards I've pretty much worked non stop on the car, I removed the entire centre console (head unit console, surround, gearshift fascia, handbrake fascia, footwell trims & the main centre console with the cup holders etc) & got to work wrapping. The final wrap material I used is 3M 1080 which is what the wrapping specialists use & there is a MAJOR difference in quality. If you're thinking of going for the carbon fiber vinyl look, once you've had a good practice with the cheap stuff, don't be cheap get the good stuff, it's even got the tactile finish to it i.e. it's not a flat print & is much more resistant to being overstretched. Unfortunately it seems to be pretty much impossible to wrap the bottom centre console itself due it's shape (6 different wrapping specialist confirmed that they can't wrap it). I'm really happy with the end result although I am thoroughly sick of the sight of carbon fiber wrap, lol! I've still got the 3 screw covers for the foot well trims to wrap but that should only take 15 minutes or so (but not today). I replaced the rather poor Ford Transit style head unit with a single DIN Sony with Bluetooth & fitted the external mic with the cable routed out of sight but once again forgot to take pictures as I went along (removing the front A pillar trim was a bit of pain but I managed it without breaking any clips so I'm happy with that) I've also replaced the brake & reversing exterior bulbs with CREE LED's & all the user accessible interior bulbs including the glove box light (i.e. not the SMDs in the door controls etc) with "white" LED's (I'll take pictures tonight of the lights - & yes I know the car needs a good wipe down/vacuuming) I'm really happy with things so far. I've also removed my EGR blank & booked in for a Terraclean on Thursday so i'll be sure to post back with the results. My plans between now & 3 months time when I get my annual bonus are: Upgraded climate control dials (like Lenny's) 2 new front wings (rust bubble central) New mud flaps all round Strip back both sills to the metal Colour code the fog light front bumper strips Respray for the bonnet, wings, sills (all the way up to door seals) & all 4 doors so hopefully I should have nice "shinee" front end. On an unrelated note I can thoroughly recommend Nokian Weatherproof tyres for snow & wet weather driving (Auto Express weren't wrong when they rated them 100% for snow/rain). I had 2 fitted on the front in January for the MOT & I've given them a thorough thrashing in the recent weather, despite the big heavy lump up front (the engine not me) the front end has a lovely positive turn in, even in heavy rain. Not something I could say about the Chinese "ditchfinders" I had on previously. Feel free to comment, any suggestions etc are very welcome, if I can give anyone else any help I'll be more than happy to.
  3. Hi all I bought a second hand fiesta from local dealer a few weeks ago. It was advertised as having LED daytime running lights. Sadly it doesn't. It has standard DTRL. I was trying to find out if it is possible to retrofit LED daytime running lights, but I can't find much info online. I know Ford sells Osram LED kit to convert fog lights, but my local Ford dealership is unable to tell me how many labour hours will be needed and what extra stuff may be needed, for example wirers etc. Can anyone tell me please what is the best way to retrofit LED daytime running lights or how much would it be reasonable for me to ask for compensation from the dealer I bought the car from. Any help will be much appreciated.

    Electrical trouble

    Hi folks, I haven't needed to post for a while, but I now have some more electrical issues with my Mk6 Fiesta. The auto lights don't work, the variable delay on the intermittent wipe consent work, it's just single speed for some reason, and lastly the door mirrors adjustment as stopped working, they still fold ( noisily ) When opening or locking but nothing else. None of these problems are car shoppers but it's frustrating that they have stopped, I have checked the fuses, they're ok but not sure if any relays are involved. Any ideas will be welcomed Cheers Steve.
  5. After advising a member on fitting footwell lights I decided a reasonably definitive guide (from my point of view) was likely to be useful. Download, print, use and enjoy Guys/Gals. Fitting footwell lights to your car.pdf

  7. Hi, I'm looking to fit LED halo ring fog surrounds onto my mk7 Fiesta. There are a few places I can get them but can someone please tell me how easy they are too fit? Hopefully someone has fitted these and know what do do! Here's a link to the website with instructions but still don' understand as haven't done this before 😣 thanks for any help! https://autobeam.co.uk/collections/fiesta-mk7-5-2013-2017/products/drl-indicator-led-ring-kit https://autobeam.co.uk/collections/fiesta-mk7-5-2013-2017/products/ambient-led-ring-kit
  8. Hey everyone, Our reverse lights are not working, so we took our van into a mechanics to have a look at it. They told us that the bulbs and switch are fine, but we seem to be missing something in the gearbox to actually press the switch when the van is put into reverse. If they put their finger in they can press the switch and the reverse lights come on, but they do not get pressed when the van is put into reverse. Does anyone have any idea what could be missing? They said that they could not find the part on the website. We have a 2006 swb transit van. Thanks! Joe

    Focus Mk3 (2011) Dipped Beam Issue

    Hello please can anyone help? I have a ford Focus estate 61 Plate (2011) and the other day my drivers side dipped beam bulb wasnt working (passengers side fine as was full beam / side lights etc) so presumed it was the bulb. Took out the bulb and it looked fine but swopped it anyway. But still wont work. So my next though was the fuse. In the handbook i have it says that the main beam fuse is in the passenger side compartment as F74 however there is no listing what so ever for dipped beam or low beam etc? does anyone know what this is, i checked the fuses best i could and not found one to be blown but if anyone knows which one it should be that would be great or if you have any other suggestions thanks Jason
  10. Okay so on my travels through the world wide inter-web thingy I have stumbled across some cheap parts for what could be an interesting retrofit project. Basically the components to create puddle lights in the wing mirrors as follows: http://www.fordpartsuk.com/shop/ford_focus_door_mirror_puddle_lamp_wire_2007_f_4506924_c_683.htm http://www.fordpartsuk.com/shop/ford_focus_door_mirror_puddle_lamp_rh_2009_f_1675129_c_683.htm http://www.fordpartsuk.com/shop/ford_focus_door_mirror_puddle_lamp_lh_2009_f_1675130_c_683.htm The cost works out at £25. I can imagine it requires the mirror unit to be removed to cut out the hole, then running some wires to the control unit. I have noticed before that there is a square marked out on the underside of the unit for the puddle light unit so would just be following the lines. Any feedback welcome, not sure if I will go along with this, but as money is tight and I really want to have a go at some sort of car based cheapish project. if those words can be used in the same sentence :P
  11.

Cheers
  12. Hi, I've got a mk7 Fiesta and want to fit LED halo rings onto the fog surrounds. I have seen a few places I can buy them but my question is how easy are they to fit? I' hoping someone who has already done them can help me out! This is what I found... https://autobeam.co.uk/collections/fiesta-mk7-5-2013-2017/products/drl-indicator-led-ring-kit https://autobeam.co.uk/collections/fiesta-mk7-5-2013-2017/products/ambient-led-ring-kit Many thanks !!!
  13. Hello everyone, I seem to be having a issue after I de-tangoing my headlights. The passenger side headlight's cut off seems to go way above the other. Basically I'm in for a MOT next month and I'm a little scared it will fail due to this. Any ideas on what I've done would be great. I think I may have scratched the inside of the plastic or possibly knocked the ballast off. If anyone's had this issue please let me know below. Thanks alot

    Dashboard cluster removal

    Hello, I'm having a little trouble removing the dashboard from my mk6.5 (STyle) fiesta. I have removed the following Steering wheel upper trim Steering wheel lower trim The trim below the steering wheel (to gain access to the trim infront of the dashboard cluster) The trim infront of the cluster And two screws at the bottom of the cluster. I tried giving it a little pull but it seemed like I'm missing something, any help would be appreciated. I have looked at a few guides but they removed the rubber trim above the cluster and it doesn't look possible on my car.

    LED interior lights

    I was thinking of getting this (the 501 RGB LED) for my interior light of my MK7 fiesta (just the center one that comes on with the doors) but I don't think it will fit, I know that the large LEDs don't fit in the center light and this one looks similar in size, can anyone shed any light on this?
  16. Recent problem that has me baffled, if I have the lights on with the engine running and attempt to turn the engine off, take the key out and the engine still runs, as soon as I turn the lights off the ignition then goes off. Same happens other way round, no key in ignition and I turn light switch to side lights or head and the ignition comes on. I was not bothered and it's been that way for 2 months or so but I now just discovered as we had fog that the fog front & rears no longer work(neither does dash signal light come on) so it's now become an MOT problem, any clues? p.s Probably unrelated but it started around same time as a fuse blew for the Aux power plug.

    Footwell LED lights

    I am considering upgrading the footwell lights in my MK 7 Zetec to red LED ones to match the ambient lighting. I have read that the LED will glow slightly when they are supposed to be off because of current still in the wire, I am wondering how noticeable this will be, I am thinking it would only be noticeable if I replace the interior roof lights too? Does anyone have any suggestions for good led footwell lights?
  18. Hi all I'm trying to find a headlight plug for the mk7.5 fiesta, as I'm in the process of facelifting my mk7 can't find any on eBay or anywhere online any help??
  19. Hi all, Would anyone have any knowledge of lights always being on and locked in dip mode only when ignition is turned on please? also no other light options work other than indicators/hazards e.g. no fogs back or front, no main beam. 08 Galaxy D. Happy Saturday you lovely people.

    Grand C-Max

    I have a 2012 Grand C-Max 2.0 TDI For some reason the lights on the Near Side turns off after a while, leaving only the Dim lights on, Indicator and mirror light still works. Lights that goes off (rear brake & park lights & Front park light) I have checked all the lights but i have no blown bulbs, what else could it be. Its my first ford, but I know that this is a symptom of a problem but I do not know where to look.

    Daytime running lamps

    Hi folks Picked up my Edge Titanium yesterday - really pleased. I noticed that the headlights are always on, regardless of the settings I've put them on e.g Auto etc. Ive followed the online video instruction to switch off the Daytime Lights, but that option doesn't appear on my Edge (the image is from the online video). Thoughts? TC
  22. Hello :) I've had my rear lights tinted, looks really smart and I'm happy with the result. One of my colleagues has been a killjoy and been reminding me all morning that the lights are either "illegal" and an "MOT failure waiting to happen" Can any of you guys lend an opinion, do I have anything to worry about?

    Dashboard lights

    Hey, hope this is the right section. I'm currently wanting to do some simple mods to my ford fiesta mk6.5 (56 reg) 1.25 style. I was wondering if anyone has a guide for changing the light color behind the Speedo. I have read elsewhere that it's pretty simple to do but I am a little confused since they are old posts and images have expired. Thanks in advance :-)

    Lights out

    So after recently changing all my lights to aftermarket CEUK bulbs everything was fine until I decided to change the roof light as well -the one that goes on when you open the doors- wasn't until today I realised that my drivers side headlights and fogs were out along with my interior footwell lights... anyone else have this problem and find the solution, I know the fuses could have blown tried to get them out but they are nion impossible to get out if you don't have nails.. and the passenger glove box fuse box you have to take out the glove compartment, for the record I have a Fiesta mk7 13 plate, any help would be appreciated massively
  25. So i have a 2013 1.6 TDCi Zetec S Facelifted. I have searched all over the internet for rear smoked lights and all i can find are ones to fit the 2008-2012 models. Does anyone have a 2013 fiesta with the rear smoked lights and can help by giving a link. As been told the 2012 will not fit the 2013- and really struggling to find some. Thanks
