some of em are a LOT ambiguous,pad worn to indicator?surely thatll have the light on anyway even assuming you can see it in the first place,have advised about half a dozen motors so far that the wear indicator aint even attached to the pad but hey that's fine,horn not in accordance with the reqmnts?what reqmnts would that be then?the ones that say not loud enuff to be heard is a minor?the ones that say sirens ok?headlights not in accordance with rqmnts?dont get me wrong its a start but that's all it is and at this pace I will have retired before they sort it all out,6 mnths so far and counting to reword the stuff that we warned about before it was even introduced?unacceptable.

Got to say the latest updates are a significant step in the right direction, it's not perfect but it will never please everyone. Neither is it meant to. ;)

I aint a judge... theres a hole & never used my thumb or forefinger but choice as above is this fair? Would not Prescribed area corroded, not considered excessive & NOT REDUCING STRUCTURAL STRENGTH be appropriate?


You have to take the info in the Appendix into consideration too Paul. ANY corrosion within a prescribed area which results in a hole is considered to have significantly weakened the structure.

From the current blog.. For example, previously, when testing the horn on a vehicle, you would need to choose the reason why it failed. We’ve now consolidated the reasons to make it clearer. So you’ll only need to choose the option that the ‘horn no longer meets requirements’.

Audible warning:
7.7.c.i sound not in accordance with requirements
Minor

just being pedantic

:shock:

Feel around if you can get your finger in there its right under the trailing arm mount bracket, there isn't the clearance. If Vehicle Technical Data (VSI) gave a lead on fiesta trailing arms ref Fractured on Fifth generation (2003–2008) (UK Mk6) it may give a heads up in helping towards saving lives... you'll see it every time DB9? Thumb & forefinger dont do it on this one Rob

When you jack up the rear of the vehicle allowing the rear axle to hang freely lower the ramp so that it is at a comfortable working weight for you while underneath the vehicle, then using your hands and fingers feel round the axle pressing in various locations. Use a mirror to see the top sectional area of the axle, you'll see it every time. Also when you are inspecting the rear wheel and tyre you can look between the wheel arch in front of the rear wheel and you will see the axle casing there.Remember also you can use a small pinch bar to check for excessive free play in the axle bush/mounting.
