The buzzing noise coming from the centre console finally got too much to bear, so the Fiesta is paying its first visit to the dealer. It took a while for it to finally make it into the service bay, as finding a Ford dealership to take my custom proved tricky at first.

Brownes of London in Tulse Hill, south-east London, seemed to recognise the problem when I called, but weren't able to fix it for a while, so referred me to Bristol Street in Bromley, Kent. However, three days after my Fiesta went in to be looked at I'm still driving around in an old-shape courtesy car (pictured).
