  1. Mk3 Ford Focus

    Probably the only way is to re-solder a different SMD LED.
  2. Help with choosing my Focus

    The engine mount might have changed but I'm not sure, the engine itself is the same. Rear park sensors are standard on titanium. Front and rear are standard on titanium X, but both can be specified as options on Zetec. DAB should be standard on Zetec and higher, possibly lower models too but I can't remember. My mum's 2012 Zetec has DAB though.      
  3. Alexp999's Mk3.5 Focus St-3 Ecoboost

    I put together a vid showing some night footage of the bi-xenons with auto high beam - my first proper trip out on country roads at night to see them in action. Really impressed. The last 20-30s shows it off quite nicely together with the static cornering lights too. (if you don't see it in HD give it a bit longer, still processing at time of posting).    
  4. Help with choosing my Focus

    Some pros to the facelift off the top of my head: Increased front rigidity (better steering feel). Re-Tuned power steering (better steering feel). Dampers slightly adjusted (more compliant ride and better handling). Sync 2 availability (depending on trim level) It basically fixes a lot of the criticisms of the mk3 originally, if you have the choice I'd get a facelift, but you are not loosing out massively if you have to go for an older one for financial reasons. If you are going for the Focus 1.0, just make sure it is the 125PS as that nets you the 6 speed gearbox which IMO is much better.

    I do like the sound symposer on this car :D      
  6. Spotting Your Old Cars

    Spotted my old Zetec S Focus yesterday :D
  7. Rattling noise when clutch pedal is depressed

    You sure it's not the dmf? On my old 1.8 tdci mk1 the dmf went and rattled when the clutch pedal was down.    bearings normally whistle or howl  
  8. visual mods for 1.0 ecoboost 64 plate

    It's just changing the bulbs for ones which don't look orange until they light up.
  9. usb & music

    You probably need the ipod cable. It only controls via USB audio is output via the aux jack. 
  10. visual mods for 1.0 ecoboost 64 plate

    Interior and non headlight bulbs to LED? Have you de tangoed? Upgrade headlights bulbs etc.    
  11. Ford owners web site upgrade

    I see a quote of the post I quote but it's not nested so you don't get a quote within a quote. There is a bit of a bug on mobile with line breaks I can't always use carriage returns or my text gets stuck in the post. There is probably a bug fix for this though. Chrome doesn't support extensions on mobile I'm using firefox with ublock. Ublock is good but more advanced with more granular control, it isn't as easy to use and can block things you don't want.    I usually install or recommend adguard for those that want a simple set and forget adblocker. But use the extension not the app. I tried the app and while it works with chrome as it uses a vpn I just had a lot of issues with it.   That's why I was so pleased to have the new forum software because it is fully responsive so works on firefox for Android. The old forum software didn't recognise firefox so served up a completely broken site.  
  12. You should be able to have an estimate of the damage (what actually needs fixing) even if it isn't a complete list, just the point they got to. You should also have the option to buy the car back and repair it yourself if you wish. No way should they demand you sign it over before giving you an ounce of information about what's happened and the claim amount as you may (probably will need to) contest it.
  13. Can't view the gallery

    I'll raise the issue with management, the one in the forum index list is just a redirect. You can ask the gallery from the main menu for now.
  14. Can't view the gallery

    I assume you are trying to visit this url:   Probably a permission issue...
  15. Doesn't sound right to me, I wouldn't be signing over my car without knowing the payout I was getting. I don't know where you stand legally though, only that I would be equally unhappy...
