  1. Past hour
  2. MK3 Focus - What not to do with FoCCCus...

    Have you got the anti-Hijacking enabled and working now? I desperately want this feature on! If so can you tell me a step by step guide and what to buy, thanks 😃
  3. Front parking sensor on focus mk3

    No, that is not possible. Without the wiring and front sensors connected a PAM module that supports both front and rear parking sensors generates DTC codes and disables the complete parking sensor system.
  4. Cluster Problem?

    This problem turned out to be that the cigarette lighter illumination connector was touching to earth, it had no bulb in it anyway because the bulb holder was knackered and would not hold a bulb.
  5. 1.0 petrol versus 1.5 petrol

    at least both varients use a proper auto box and not powershift rubbish.
  6. Possible cluster Problem Focus 07

    I think there has been a load of stuff on this forum before about cluster faults on mk2 Focus where the solder on the circuit board in the cluster cracks. i think there are companies that will repair your cluster. I'm sure there was also a photo guide on this forum on how to do it yourself with a soldering iron (lots of dismantling involved) and probably not suitable for someone to do if they have never used a solderng iron before

  11. Modified Fusion

    Many thanks Sir, I think the amber lenses spoil the look of the car's face so I will be investing in a set of clear units. 😀

  14. Front parking sensor on focus mk3

    sorry to bump an old thread but is it possible to buy the PAM that supports both rear and front sensors but only program in the rear ones , till I get the ABS stuff & front loom ?
  15. Which automatic Fiesta to buy?

    I don't know how to tell and I guess many private sellers would not even understand the question. If I owned one I am sure i would know the difference but I have not had an automatic for many many years. In addition to people having problems in the UK with the non-torque converter type, the problems have been much bigger in USA and Australia where the ownership of automatics is mush more common. http://www.caradvice.com.au/570740/ford-powershift-transmission-issues-explained-australian-boss-talks-on-troubles-and-remedies/ http://www.roadandtrack.com/car-culture/a10316276/what-you-need-to-know-about-the-proposed-settlement-for-ford-powershift-owners/

  18. Are these fake Bosch AeroTwin wipers?

    The newer style blades come through like that. The packaging changed from Yellow and black to the new style box that you have there, branding on the wipers also changed. I stock Bosch wipers at work and I can confirm they do look like that now. Hope that answers your question
  19. I've recently crossed onto the Western Steppes, and successfully crossed into Kazakhstan. The border itself this time of year is rather unique, from experience a conventional border crossing via road consists of a country's exit border, a section of 'no man's land' then the new country's entry border. However the border between Russia and Western Kazakhstan lies across a section of the Reka Kigach river which at this time of year has frozen over. You have the Russian exit border, but then stretched across the bridges are a series of no less than 2 Kazakhstan check-points. At each checkpoint you're issued a stamp and the car is roughly checked for contraband, when you finally arrive at the Kazakhstan entry border across the river you present your stamps as proof you've legitimately traveled via road across the frozen river and haven't simply illegally driven across the frozen ice. One of my last Russian cities before crossing is unique. Named Elista, a fascinating region, and the only part in all of Europe which is Buddhist. The steppes here are a sight, flat grasslands for as far as the eye can see, remarkable. Herds of animals wander freely. I should cross the Ural river by car for the first time in the coming day and therefor arrive in the continent of Asia for the first time. Washing the car is futile!
  20. Clunky front end....Ooh Err !!

    Well it could be the shock absorbers, it could just be normal, has this just started or has it got worse? i had a lot of noise that is commonly called bumb thump, disappeared with new shocks and top mounts, no wiggling showed up the fault.
  21. Dash cam advice!

    ive asked for break down of the discounts for firstly being a member and secondly the camera and they couldn't tell me, it was "just included in the price"
  22. Philf1's Nitrous Blue Focus RS

  23. My MK7 Fiesta

    Ah sorry lol, was shattered from work. Are Zaust too far from you
  24. Hello everyone, I have just bought these wipers brand new off ebay for my MK2 Focus, and I am a bit suspicious of them as they look a bit different to my last ones and don't have any branding on the centre section. Has anybody else bought any Bosch AeroTwin wipers lately and can confirm theirs looked the same as these please? Cheers!
  25. Hi I'm looking at buying a MK3 estate to replace my dead MK2 and want to take the head unit from the MK2 - is it possible? The head's a double DIN Pioneer, which I want to keep as it works great with my iPod The current setup fitted is this; Would I just need a fascia adaptor or would that not work? The head unit I want to keep does bluetooth dialing, ipod control etc, hence wanting to keep it Also, is there anywhere convenient to mount a second 12v socket for running my GPS?
  26. 1.6 Diesel fuel filter
