  1. Past hour
  2. Absolutely
  3. I like those new side repeaters! The orange lenses look fine on the original MK1s as they also have orange indicator lenses mounted to the lower front bumper, but on the facelift models the indicators are integral to the headlamp units so orange side repeaters look out of place.
  4. I don't like this UTI that I seem to have contracted, meaning "bathroom visits" are a minimum of 5 minutes long, and don't always result in success... It started after I began taking an anti-depressant prescribed by the doctor (sertraline), and after doing a quick Google search I found that it has been known to cause such side-effects. Needless to say I've stopped taking it and will be having a word with my doctor on Monday morning!
  5. Sitting inside watching the TV can be done in the rain, get in the garden and have a beer in the sun [emoji38] or wash the rover [emoji848] It's beautiful here too, dog loves the beach he could play all day but with him bing black he overheats so quickly. I'm working until midnight tonight so I can't enjoy any of the sun [emoji53] suppose that bit should be in 'don't like thread' really Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. Today
  7. I used the same mate as that's what my son used on his mk1 a few years back and i thought at the time that i'd like to do the same when i get a Focus ..
  8. Look even better/neater if you put the reg' plate were it should be! Oh hang on you can't!
  9. Got my mud flaps fitted, I'll get some better pics tomorrow. :D
  10. Glad to hear you got it sold!
  11. I do like it being a beautiful day in Scotland, for a change! And being off work to enjoy it. Well, when I say enjoy it I spent the morning out and about but will spend the rest of the day inside watching TV...
  12. It shouldn't make any difference, as long as it is a good quality lead then the power should be just as strong whether it is 1ft long or 15ft.
  13. So hoovered the car out today. I think it will take a good few times to get it cleaner then it is. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. It's probably a mix of a failing battery and the long lead. The battery may not hold a charge from any charger. It's always best to use the OEM lead, not always possible I know. A lot of the dashcams are renowned for not saving files on shut down when they are just about done. It's always a good idea to get the best you can afford, you get what you pay for and and all that. If you can try to hardwire whatever camera you get and you will get the best results that way. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. Exactly that. I didn't know the Officer who died but he was a brother to me nonetheless. Sent from my SM-G930F
  16. My thoughts too! I would spend hours playing about with them and get annoyed if the child dare touch them haha Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  17. You could get a piggy back fuse tap and do it that way, is really simple. Then wire in a 12v socket to the fuse tap, earth it to the car and store it out of sight behind the dash then connect your camera power lead to the socket. Have you checked the 12v socket you are using turns off when you exit the car? The other alternative is to get a 12V socket extension with the plug on one end and a socket on the other, connect it up to the socket then run it to behind the dash and connect your dashcam power lead. If you have paid out for a very decent camera then you really want it in the right place so you get the right angle etc. It will read number plates much easier. I would personally hard wire it, you can get a nextbase kit from Maplin which I think would do the job, the best option is to get a control box so you can set things like leaving it on constantly, but have the box monitor the battery voltage and if it drops it will turn the camera off.

  18. 😦 is it that obvious 😁 can't play on his own though,
  19. Right done one side now it's driver side any tips on this as I'm stuck with no room to get the front bolt out .Thanks
  20. Does it shuffle after 5 seconds of playing or straight away? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  21. Hi all 2 weeks ago I had my windshield changed. And ever since I picked it up my remote keys has not worked. At first I assumed that the battery had run out, so I changed them. But still did not work. So I thought the key could have lost it's programming, so I tried my other key. It also did not work. Then I thought MAYBE the battery had run out in both at the same time. So I tried programming the key with the new battery. I get the car in to programming mode no problem, but not matter how many times I press the button on the key, it does not work. I tried both keys. And even an extra key my friend had. So I doubt it is the keys that is the problem. And the central locking system also works fine with the manual key. Is there anyone who has an idea of what the problem can be?
  22. Could be powersteering leak - those dam pipes are prone to leaking. Looks like abit too much wet for a power steering fault though hmmmm.
  23. I know someone who had this and it turned out to be some issue with the gearbox (sorry not sure what). What I recommend is take it to your local ford dealership (they will look at it and diagnose for free) then get the work done elsewhere. What I've found is alot of garages charge you just to look at the car! As crap as the dealerships are, they are good at spotting issues so since its free its a no brainer! Goodluck mate!
  24. Yes, it is the same in STs. Vibrations are noticable with aftermaket motor mounts but they are a better and yeah for some people it is annoying and uncomfortable. That is why i have taken the OEM Ford upgraded rear motor mount. :)
  25. I wouldn't advise it but it is possible. You would have to remove the box and have a heat shielded filter that bolts on and create something that will bring in cool air otherwise it will suffer heatsoak. A k&n 57i is a box type filter and you also get other variations of shielded filters. Otherwise upgrade your panel filter for a performance one.
  26. Yeah I have a panel filter. Was hoping to swap it for a cone filter. Would it be possible?
