  1. 2015 Ford Focus DRL

    Good to know Focccus is working on the mk3.5 now, when I tried it about 18 months ago my car locked it out and made all sorts of clicks and flashy lights, haha.
  2. Update Sync 2 The Easy Way

    The first photo with build 14073 is older than what links I've provided. The latest build I have been able to find for manual install is 15128.
  3. Focus ST-2 Mk3 2013 Revs bouncing

    There were only recalls in the US. There is a TSB for this though. It's a bad connection on one of the wiring looms. Get it back to the dealer and they should be able to sort it.
  4. Mk6 Fiesta ST?

    Can't say about the rest of it, but the engine is the 2.0 duratec, same as the mk2 focus, and the base on which my ecoboost was developed. Mazda designed and a goodun afaik. I'm sure there will be things to look out for as with any engine/car though.
  5. New Fiesta Ecoboost Groan When Reversing

    There might be a TSB for it, in which case they'll have it in and carry out whatever work is in the TSB. Just be prepared to jump through a few hoops, it's not usually the dealers fault, but as Ford are picking up the warranty bill they will expect a certain sequence of actions and work to be carried out first, before they'd entertain covering the cost of a clutch. (unless there is a known batch of bad clutches).
  6. New Fiesta Ecoboost Groan When Reversing

    I haven't heard of the groaning issue myself, so no idea on that one.
  7. New Fiesta Ecoboost Groan When Reversing

    Clutch has no fixed warranty term. It will only be replaced if it is agreed to be a manufacturing defect. (Which can be done outside of warranty anyway).
  8. Is my Router packing up?

    Have you tried re flashing the latest firmware and restoring to factory defaults?
  9. Virus pop up whilst on this site.

    I'll chase it up again if we haven't heard anything by Weds.
  10. Virus pop up whilst on this site.

    If I could fix it I would. Only thing you can do is use an adblocker until the admins sort it if it is a concern.
  11. Persistent quote - annoying bug!

    So if you delete it and then refresh, it comes back?
  12. New Fiesta Ecoboost Groan When Reversing

    If reverse jumps out then it wasn't in properly in the first place. As has been mentioned, the 5 speed box has no synchro on reverse so it will be more difficult to engage. You need to make sure you are at a complete standstill and hold the clutch down a couple of seconds before engaging reverse. If it still won't go in I used to pump the clutch then it would be fine. You soon get used to feeling when it has and hasn't gone in properly. Hopefully the dealer can fix the hill assist though :)
  13. What to declare to insurance

    It depends on the insurer, you'll need to ask yours what needs to be declared and what doesn't. Bulbs are generally okay as long as they aren't intended to significantly increase light output (e.g. HIDs).
  14. Try here: I don't know what it is personally, I tried looking on microcat and it just seems to be part of the cylinder head cover. Perhaps an unused mount? I'm sure someone who's worked on these might now, like @iantt maybe?
  15. Have you looked in the online manual to see if that has any info?
