Are your wipers the ultra-flat type?
They are very easy to change compared to the older clip in to hook design
jeebowhite

Personal reg and a set of 3D number plates from demonplates. Really sets the car off nicely. To be fair my car had lots of early Xmas pressies so it can't expect too much on Xmas!

Your missus is a keeper mate,
Self maintained and everything,

Vicki (my missus) throws problems at me all the time but she never has the initiative to go out there and solve one of them.

My focus has Bluetooth but I replaced the 6000CD with a Sony from a 2007 focus,
Now Bluetooth, voice control and aux port don't work,
But I've sold the 6000CD
She wants Bluetooth and aux port back so I've gotta either purchase a 2009 Sony or 6000CD from a focus not mondeo

Hi 

 

I've bought a high pressure pump for my focus after the original started wasting diesel to the environment...lol

Ffoxy
Okies! That's our 3 Fiestas all done now! The wife's Metal just needed footwell bulbs (why didn't Ford fit them?) so I added a strip of red l.e.d's to her glove-box / dash too! All 3 look pretty good, took about 30 mins each and total cost 11! 1 standard Ford l.e.d set is 40 I'm told....
gazza21
I have just bought some snow foam and clay bar kit to give her a good clean, and also the ST front and rear bumpers (unsure if its gunna need adapting to fit, but got a very good deal so bought anyway haha), and also some ST side skirts, to find out they are 3 door instead of 5 door haha, but once again got a very good deal for them, so will be able to make a profit on them if I come to sell.

Sorry to go off topic and off ford on this but;
Just thought this was an appropriate time to mention;
The bulb has blown on the low fuel light indicator in the Toyota Levin bzr,
I've not had it on the road yet but the fact the bulb has been used that much its blown.... doesn't say much for the MPG

Sweet,
The focus range respond well to the mods,
You should start a build thread at this point before you do too much to document
Lenny

would love footwell lights

 you can retro fit the factory footwell lighting aswell as rear footwell lighting, click on my avator picture to view my profile then click on the link for footwell lighting guide.

Should fit no problem,
I had a 1.3 1997 hatch back starlet once,
I put a 15" fusion sub box in the boot along with two 6.5"
Put some 6x9's in the parcel shelf
But had to make some half inch rings to sit between the 6x9's and the parcel shelf to raise there magnets up out of the boot space as they were hitting the sub box :lol:
Was impossible to drive at full volume

That, or the previous owner was a stingy student who only topped up with 5 quid worth of fuel each time!   :P

TomTitanium62

Bought my Ford some Bosch wipers ( Highly recommended ), Autoglym auto refresh for the inside and some (purple) screen wash - not scented haha 

Aldoo
