You will definitely want to shim your valves. This can be a tricky and very precise process better left to a professional, but it NEEDS to be done if it hasn't yet. Also, reset your chain tension, clean and lubricate your chain (preferably with a dry spray lube), check brake pads for remaining life, check tires for enough tread, and especially front tire for "cupping" which is caused by hard braking. This is where the tire will have ridges if you feel along the periphery of the tire. if it has this, it needs replacement. Change your oil and filter.

When I start the car and I turn the A/C on, it smells pretty bad for about 5 minutes then smells ok....also my air is not very cool, its s vw tiguan 2010 Wolfsburg edition 11k miles...had first 10k service...

the smell comes from mold and mildew which accumilates because of moisture left behind by the ac the ac could be malfunctioning but make sure that it is completely on cold at the lowest (coldest setting) and it will only get so cold the system has r-134 in it unlike the traditional r-12 it only cools down to about 30-35 degrees.

Abs light has come on (56 For Fiesta, 11k miles!)

Could be a speed sensor, but what I would do is take it over to maybe some one like Autozone where then can do a free code reading.

Can it be that after 11,000 miles the clutch is burned, bec i am feeling it slipping a bit?

It is possible, but really depends on how the bike was treated for those 11K miles. One thing you should check is that the clutch cable is properly adjusted. There should be some free-play at the clutch lever - see the owner's manual, but the first 1/4" or so of clutch lever movement should do nothing except take up slack out of the cable. Insufficient free play at the lever will cause the clutch to not engage fully, and slip.

Passenger seat belt light will not illuminate. The chirp sounds.

Check under the seat for a disconnected plug. Should be an easy fix.
