  1. obd codes

    i have a 2004 focus c-max 1.8 petrol. every now and then the engine management light pops up. the car its self is driving fine. i got this code generated p2008 but not sure on a fix or is it a garage job. i just had the reversing light switch replaced and its started sice then. was it the garage at faul for not fitting a hose back on properly or it just one of those things any help with piccys will be great as i am more than happy to try the fix myself. the other thing thats been happening is the boot seems to have a mind of it's own to open and  lock on it's own sometimes but only if were in the car
  2. gear linkage mechanism

    the ka uses some fiat parts but if its a ka ie ford then it will have the ford box not the fiat one.i had my daughters ka 2010 gearxox taken out new seals and rebuilt and refitted for less than £300 and the gearbox people said a ka only uses a ford box and the f 500 uses the fiat box as he does quite a lot of them as the seals seem to be common fail. As its been said the garage is doing you over SO AVOID THEM 
  3. 05 ka misfire

    sounds like the injector bar to me. had same happen on a pug 206. goto to scappies and get replacement oh and dont bin the tesco fuel as its fine
  4. Engine revving

    here is what your looking for 2 bolts to remove and a simple clip wire. give a good clean with wd40 and refit. if it's not that part repost on here 
  5. Hub nut size

    easiest way to work it out is got buy a new hub nut as you should replace it with a new one if you remove the old one and measure the new nut then get the socket that fits then go remove the old nut. or just phone ford spares and they should be able to tell you the size
  6. Catalytic convertor

    the garage had you over as a cat is no where near £500. cost to fit about a hours labour . take to another garage then report to other garage to local trading standards see link   http://beta.eurocarparts.com/catalytic-converter
  7. Ka brake pedal noise

    my daughter has a 2010  ka and it does the same with the clunk noise. have checked it and its how it is as said befor too much fiat in the car. not that well refined i dont think otherwise a good car.
  8. phoe fordparts with your vin number and they maybe able to help you. you can always use the chassis number when you phone fords as that maygive more details or look on the alt as they put details on there or atleast take a piccy of it for reference
  9. ka charging battery at 19 volts

    get it checked properly as omendata said it sounds like alt or regulator. dont let ileave it too long as you may ruin the battery   
  10. oil change every 12 months and magnatech will be fine but you dont need expensive oil for the ka. add some tappet additive as that will keep the tappets from pinking.
  11. 2004 Sport Ka Auxiliary Belt

    perhaps its not the correct belt for your model of engine. where the belt rubbed itt maybe worn on that point. i would phone fords to get the part number and a price inc vat then phone around for other prices on eurocarparts etc http://www.trustfirstparts.co.uk/ leave a message on the site above and they will reply really fast all times of day and night i have found in the past
  12. Engine Light On Sportka

    jamie if your confident to do the work yourself it will save you a fortune. let us know if you want to diy and we can tell you what you need to do the job and advise you .if the weather is crap then you need to park in a garage to do it really not kirbside.if you feel you cant do it or dont want to do it then ask what a garage will charge. i recon each side ie wishbone etc will cost between 30 - 1 hours labour so count for say 2 hours labour then the parts ontop. if your taking to a small local garage ask them what the parts will cost inc vat and then go online and compare the price and supply them to parts to fit ?
  13. Engine Light On Sportka

    engine management light can mean anything so garage to get the to sort it if you can yorself. the steeing is due to wear on the suspension so that needs looking at asap as you said it pulls and is horrible to drive. sounds lie lower suspension arm and track rod ends need doing
  14. Standard Vs Flat Wipers?
