Hi all
Any help or advice much appreciated. Drivers side seat trim/storage at bottom of seat is a poor fit, tried a tap to send it home but know joy. Thinking of getting tools out but don't want it to turn out to be a big fuss. May just complain.

Going to wash it for 1st time tomorrow, don't know whether to take itto car wash or try my own hand, diamondbright was a freebie so have car care kit to use. How we all cleaning ours.

thanks again

Ash

I have never put any of my vehicles through a car was. What was the state of the vehicle in front of yours like (covered in grit and dried on mud). Then getting the paintwork battered by those big swatches. I dont think so. Also they never do a proper job as you always have to wash the wheelsand the front and rear valances always gets missed.


I use AutoGlym products throughout, and the Kuga is always looking spankers everytime. (There are some photos on here).



So for me handjob evertime. (Phoar Phoar).

I can't recommend Autoglym highly enough, it's brilliant stuff. Particularly the High Definition Wax, as Stupot says there are some fantastic machines on here.
The other reason why it would be best to hand wash is that you can check the body for any stone chips and sort them out straight away and it's very satisfying when you stand back and look at your beautiful Kuga knowing that your hard got her looking that way!

Ashy,
Kugacat is right, Autoglym is superb, the high definition wax is a breeze to put on and more importantly, take off again. I have built up quite a few Autoglym products now, the bumper care is really good for all the black skirts etc. Happy washing !!!!

Seat tray thing is an easy fix if its the same prob I hadon passenger side..........at the front were the plastic wrpas around the front of the seat there are two plastic clips one at top one at bottom you have to reach aroundand squeeze both clips together then the tray pops into place.....you could of course be talking bout a totaly different fault in which case I cant help you

I totaly agree with other comments re-autoglym it is by far the best range of products available imo I know cos have tried em all. Wifey recently bought me one of those fluffy microfibre mitts for the motorhome was so impressed I just got on for the Kuga. They work very well just hose down to get rid of any grit then wipe off with said mitt, however by a decent one not a cheapo supermarket own brand job cos there not as good.

Hi all I have used Auto Glym High Def and OK I agree it is probably the best finish but I just found it hard work, when dry to actually take off/ remove residue, personallyI much preferred Turtle Wax Platinum Xtra Gloss, far easier to apply andbuff off, I will accept though Auto Glym'sPaint Renovater for all those key scratches and minor scuffs is excellent , Car Plan's Tyre Slik for the rubber is superb and smells great too, Turtle Wax Clear Vue far better than Rain X as water repellentscreen.
PS Don't buy the Rain X wipes from Tesco, costhey are pap.

Hiips, obviously it's a cutting liquid but it just seems to disolve scratches rather than just cut through them.

Sorry ips I have just one tinyscratch, I used it a lot on the Black Honda not another moan but Ford's paint is not just thin it's very very thin, but as you say for those inevitable scratches, it's have a go, or bring someone like Chips Away in.

Someone referred to trays, are these under seat sliding trays?

kugace, now why does that not surprise me one bit, I think that they live in fantasyland and spin lines just so that when they get together down the pub, they can swap the best tall stories they have told. Sorry I thought someone had mentionedunder seat trays (Useful, Honda had them)and I was missing out again.Glad someone agree's with me on the poor quality carpets, it's all about the detail, if only Ford could understand and grasp that, like I said very odd how the C-Max carpets are just as cheap, andcoming away from under the trim whichis supposed to secure it.Balance? Still a fantastic vehicle though.
