I have a 2008 fiesta (the newer shape) and my radio display turns off, then about 20 seconds later the actual radio itself turns off. So I turn the radio back on and soon it does the same thing all over again.
The problem seems to not be with the radio-component itself, as I bought a...
I recently purchased WS Ford Fiesta Zetec 2010 secondhand while it was still under warranty. Since then I have had 4 wheels buckle in separate incidents - NOT HAPPY JAN! Ford say that they will not take any responsibility. I have now come to the decision that I need to buy new rims. Does anyone...
I have a 2004 Fiesta Manual, I noticed that the pin/screw that holds the clutch arm to the peddle is missing. So the arm starts to come off the peddle. I was wondering what is the size and type of pin/screw, so I can buy a replacement i guessing Ford will charge over the top for it.
My 2008 Fiesta Manual Petrol its causing me some idle issues....
The problem occurs when I come to a stand still at traffic lights etc and the car is idling. The revs drop and raise and the car appears to be struggling to maintain aconsistent idling speed.

Hey all. My moms WQ Fiesta, has been acting a little strange for the last year or so. Every now and then when you start it, it will stall, then you have to restart and it will do it again, and then maybe again, i think the record was 7 times.
Changed, fuel and air filters and have cleaned out...
Bought my late '04 Fiesta bought new in '05 has had an intermittant problem for a while where the Speedo needle drops to Zero for 10 to 30 seconds sometimes weeks apart or sometimes each time I drive.
Note - the ODO also stops during this time.
Anyone know of a similar problem affecting...

Anyone replaced the H4 Headlight Bulbs in an Early ( '04 / '05 ) MK6 Fiesta ? :confused:
Haven't found a definitive " How To " to on the Web yet, most I've found say you need to remove the headlight assembly after removing the Grill, the left/passanger side looks like you can get to the bulb...
Hi all, I bought my first ever new car a Ford Fiesta Zetec 3 months ago and I am having a couple issues with it that I don't like much and I wondered if I can ask if anyone else has these issues too.
First the noises, the car has quite loud at the engine when idling (fan belt?) when it gets warm. ...
Hey guys- I am currently selling my pedders lowering springs for a ford fiesta 2010-2013
I had them in my car for about a month (upgraded to coilovers)
Awsome ride whilst they were in- and the car looked good aswell!
Not entirely sure how much they lowered my car by!
Im selling them for...
Replacing ECU in WS Fiesta: Any Ford techs here?
I am replacing my ECU and having trouble getting the car to start;
I assume it needs to be programed to the key, immobiliser and body control module? or can I replace the key, body control module and maybe the dash out of the car the ECU came...
After a good run of reliable driving my Fiesta purchased new in '05 died suddenly last night while driving. :(
Was driving home from shopping last night when without warning not even a splutter the engine stopped. After coasting to the side of the road had full electricity and engine cranks over...
I just bought a 2010 WS Fiesta Zetec. 3 years old but only 20,000km on the dial. Bright blue, 5 speed manual. I have to say, I love it. It has a surprising amount of power for a little car, and corners like it's on rails. The sound system is very good too. Not as good as the Alpine system with...
is it possible to get ford service to update the ECU with the Focus tune?
eg going from the 89kw 151Nm tune to the Focus 93kw 159Nm tune?
they both are the same engine, both the same fuel and both the same rpm limits
now 4kw is nothing to get excited about but 8Nm would be great plus the Focus...
Love my 3dr '04 Fiesta I've owned since new but there are some dumb elements that could have been designed better one of which is the 3dr Hatch Seat release handle that tilts the seats back forward, the release mechanism is operated by 2 cables from a single point to seat handle near the headrest....
new to your site
the heater demister for my fiesta's front screen has no air flow hot or cold coming out of the center vent no matter what setting you move the control knob to

Hi I have a ford fiesta cl 5 door hatch on order... I ride a 8 foot mini mal surfboard and hoping I can slide it in from the boot to the front instead of opting for racks, anyone else surf and can get board in the car????? 8ft????
Hi all. My 2011 Fiesta WT Zetec (auto) is my first ever car and while I love it to bits I have been starting to have a few concerns lately about the quality of the stock parts.
I just had the tyres changed today (after only 30K on the stock Continentals, got some Hancooks as they are cheapest )...
Does anyone know if the DSC in a new WT Fiesta can be switched off? There is no button for it and no option in the menu. I see that the new Focus can have the DSC turned off by going through the menu settings but no such offering on the Fiesta.
I was wondering if the 2004-2008MY fiesta was ever offered with cruse control as an option at this side of the world??
Can any one tell me please where the pcv valve is located on a 2004 wp zetec ?
I have a hiss noise that seems to be coming from the fitting with the red clips connected to the fuel regulator I think. Is this normal and if not where can I get a new fitting. Thanks in advance. The car is a wp zetec 1.6L fiesta 2004
Just wondering do the petrol engine have a EGR valve and if yes where can I find it on the engine, it was suggested that this could be a problem with rough idle.
Where can I get a Custom Sun Shade for 2012 Fiesta or off the shelf that fits?
No luck with conventional suppliers. ( Repco, Auto One, Super Cheap, Big W, Target, Autopro.
Ford have upped the fuel economy of the Fiesta Econetic to 3.6L per 100kms.
4 x genuine alloy 16" rims from a 2011 WT Fiesta. (4 x 100 stud pattern)
Fitted with Continental Conti Premium Contact 2 195/50 R 16 (They have 96 km on them so I'm saying 100% tread).
I've seen them for sale for $1000 to 1,200 on ebay and pumaspeed etc.
Lets say $800 ONO
Hey guys, well after a few weeks of air conditioning hell I now seem to have it working ok, but can someone with a WQ fiesta please check to see how their a/c fan runs. I.e start the car, leave in park/neutral, turn the ac on and wait for the fan to kick on. Now what I need to know is how long does...

My mum picked up a new WT Fiesta today. It wasn't until she was taking delivery and the salesman was showing her (and me) around the car that we were told there was no spare wheel and no jack. Living in a rural area, it could take hours for a tow truck to arrive if the goop they...
Hi there just recently purchased a 2004 fiesta ghia for my partner she loves the car but I'm a bit concerned in the noise that the car makes on a regular basis whilst driving and in a stationary position
The car makes like a tak noise every 7 to 10 seconds sounds like its coming from behind the...
I just went to look at the wheel specifications of the WT Fiesta. It looks like Ford has discontinued the sedan, as it's not shown as an option on the Ford Australia website.
There was no mention of that when my mum bought her Fiesta 5 weeks ago.
I recently hit a pothole and my wheel is bent and the tyre blown. Getting a new one is so expensive.
Other than from the dealers, where else could i get a new one? If somebody has one that is not used and still in good condition, i would be interested in buying it.
Or if you guys have an...
My daughter has a 2004 WP Fiesta 2-door manual & it is a great little car but it has this annoying noise when on the open road. It almost sounds like it is around the windscreen wiper (drivers side when at rest) when buffeted by a gust of wind but only when the gust comes from a certain direction...
hi, i thought i would post over on these forums to ask of anyone in VIC who knows some good mechanics who have worked on the duratec engines. im looking at having some cams fitted to my 2.0 duratec i4, i would get my mechanic to fit them, but because he rarely works on my engine, costs will be out...
Hey guys, hopefully someone can help me. I have lost my lock nut for my fiesta, and even though I have the ID number, my dealer cannot get a new one as it is made in the UK, and they won't chase it up for me either (Awesome) They offered to remove them for approx $600. Obviously this is ridiculous...
I am after the stripes for my sisters fiesta, could any one please measure them and post the measurements? i have a friend who does car graphics for drift events and can cut vinyl to any size.
so ,mums 06 fiesta has developed some issues.
The engine has a slight lump to it and sounds like its misfiring. The engine will not rev past 4k, at all. Also the check engine light is on, i had a friend come past with a scanner and has been told that its misfiring. I have removed the...
Bit new in this. Can anyone please help me out. Why do they say that a towbar cant be fitted to a WS Zetec? To my understanding all the chasis are the same, so all the mounting points will be the same.(or not?)
Interesting video with a good result for the Fiesta Econetic.
Hi all we've got an '04 Fiesta Zetec with 26000k's. It has a noisy waterpump and Power Ford at Castle Hill in NSW have quoted approx $1100 to fix it. They told me I will also need a new fan belt as the ONLY WAY to remove the old belt is to cut it off!
I find this very hard to believe and I asked...
We just saw the production Focus ST revealed, and now here's the Fiesta version.
It has a turbocharged 1.6L 4cyl producing 132kW and 240Nm.
Looks great to me and I especially like those headlights!
I am new on here and just wanted to see if anyone has had any experiences with towing a small trailer behind a Fiesta. I have this years model and would like a small trailer to make an occassional tip run 5 x 3 size or there abouts. The reason for my question is that 99%...
Dealer principal has solved my problem
Over my last 30 years of driving changing to ever bigger cars every 4 to 5 years then after buying missus a Mazda 6 Wagon was after a car that I wanted to drive, one that was simple, solid and fun harking back to my first car a SSS'd Datsun 1600 4spd in '81. :confused:
After comparing the Fiesta...

My wife and and I have 2009 WS Fiesta Zetec.
Love it but I'd like an extra cog or taller 4th. As far as city cars go it's brilliant.
If anyone on the forum has or knows of some good condition second hand OEM Zetec 16" rims let me know. I only need one, but if the price is right.........
For your interest...
To be honest, I'm not sure why they didn't compare the Fiesta with a Polo Blue Motion (such a thing exists doesn't it?) and in all fairness, they do...
