  1. I've heard of it before, they might try a software update first. Otherwise it will be a new headlight. All under warranty though, they know about the issue. (Ford that is, not necessarily your dealer, lol).
  2. Be careful with the berry one, it attracted a mouse to my dad's last car and it chewed holes in the under bonnet insulation where it had dripped! He's always used plain "alcohol" smelling stuff since.
  3. Moved to focus section for you. Do you have a picture?
  4. Fiesta and Mini are a good 200kg lighter. You can't expect the same economy from the heavier Focus.
  5. Depends on your definition of fun. I love the power of the Focus ST, but even a 1.0 Fiesta is more fun to fling around the twisties.
  6. The ST diesel will have better handling and be more responsive. If a Fiesta is big enough, then I'd say a 1.0 ST-Line might be better. The petrol Focus ST feels big and heavy compared to a Fiesta, the diesel Focus ST will be even more so.
  7. VW pepper grey is a good match to Ford rock metallic from what I've read.
  8. There could well be an outstanding field service action out on it. So they won't actively recall you, but the next time it is serviced by Ford, they'll apply the update.
  9. Actually just read this on Ford's website, which suggests it is possible on Sync 3.... Two phones can be paired to the system at the same time. One can be used for its phone features, and the other for its media.
  10. Do you mean easy fuel? You should have a filler funnel for emergency filling not from a pump.
  11. Should still have something logged, OP says it showed no error codes.
  12. If the EML has been triggered there will be a logged fault. You need something that can read the Ford codes, like Forscan as has been mentioned.
  13. Did you try clearing the DTCs before writing?
  14. It's the same with the 2.0 ecoboost, it's based on the NA 2.0 duratec. The 1.0 Ecooost is a totally from the ground up new engine though. Even the 1.5 ecoboost is an evolution (in some ways, not in others, lol), of the 1.6 ecoboost. Primarily just shortened the stroke and fit a water based intercooler to the intake.
  15. The problem is going to be the ECU, how you tell the engine is doesn't have a turbo any more.
