  1. security/alarm

    A check on fordetis would tell you if it had an alarm or not!
  2. Display faulty?

    His info in his original post states 2006 focus 2.0TDCI Titanium!
  3. Parcel shelf standard?

    Try a breakers as a last resort, they'll charge somewhere around £20! (Had to get one when our son bought his mk6 facelift)
  4. water leaking into engine

    If it's the core plugs you could do it yourself and save £'s as the core plugs themselves won't cost much.
  5. 58 plate Focus Titanium - no tdci badge?

    It might have fallen off or someone's started to 'de badge' it?
  6. Owners Guide

    Try here :,i.html
  7. Battery and tick over

    The car might run a little rough for a few miles but it should settle down again once the ECU has 'learned' your driving habits.
  8. Battery and tick over

    Might need to reset the one touch Windows/global window opening. The revs may be higher as the ECU will be in 'relearning' mode.
  9. P0156 fault code query

    Sensor 2 is on the front section of the exhaust under the car after the cat
  10. P0156 fault code query

    Give me 5 minutes and I'll photograph the Haynes page
  11. P0156 fault code query

    There are two O2 sensors in the system and if I remember right sensor two is the 'post-cat'. (Someone will correct me if I'm wrong)
  12. Public Transport vs Car - your thoughts??

    When the bus does a door to door journey rather than two buses and a ten minute walk in the cold or rain to get to work then I'll think about using public transport before the car.
  13. I think (from looking at pictures on google)it could be on the front left hand side of the engine. Clean the throttle body/butterfly flap gently and lubricate the butterfly flap shaft lightly.
  14. 03 mondeo estate cracked wheel

    Fordpartsuk.comfor a brand new one or you could try a breakers yard/eBay?
  15. Who has sprayed their wheels?

    Bog standard silver .... (Refurbished cause they were Kerbed when we bought it)
