  1. Go to ford etis website and put your registration in and it will tell you what your car has!
  2. Noise when braking

    New pads and disks done yourself, somewhere around £60 for 'decent parts' (depending where you buy them) and if you got a garage to do it, somewhere around £150 + (again the price will vary depending wether it's a main dealer or small local garage) If the spokes on your wheels are large enough take a look through them and see if you can see the brake pads to check how much material is left, failing that remove the wheel to look.
  3. Noise when braking

    Brake pads worn down and metal to metal contact?
  4. water leaking into engine

    You'd need to take the cam cover off to get to the core plug but it doesn't take long to get one out and replace it. A garage should do it easily and I would think well within an hour. (Have replied to your PM Viper2k16.)
  5. security/alarm

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

    His info in his original post states 2006 focus 2.0TDCI Titanium!
  7. 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)
  8. 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.
  9. 58 plate Focus Titanium - no tdci badge?

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

    Try here :,i.html
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. P0156 fault code query

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

    Give me 5 minutes and I'll photograph the Haynes page
  15. 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)
