  1. Try here: http://www.ford.co.uk/OwnerServices/Owners-Manual 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?
  2. Have you looked in the online manual to see if that has any info?
  3. Severe Rattle - 1 day old ST180

    Does it do it with just ignition on but engine off? Does it do it as soon as you start the engine or only once the engine revs have dropped? Or does it stop after the engine has idled for a bit (auto choke). I can't quite tell from the video if it is electrical (like a relay) or resonant (i.e. vibration). It's something that should be fixable under warranty, could be really simple. Need to try an narrow down what is causing it though. Can you hear it outside/underneath the car or under the bonnet, or only in the cabin?
  4. Will this fit my car

    Yeah afaik. Same bumper just added chin and splitter at the factory. I only did the grille on my old Focus for the Zetec S, but all the parts are interchangeable.
  5. Will this fit my car

    What about the Zetec S chin and splitter?
  6. Will this fit my car

    Won't fit. Not even close, ST has a totally different bumper.
  7. Virus pop up whilst on this site.

    It's not anything from the site, just loaded by some bad 3rd party ads. Nothing should happen unless you open the link, but if you are concerned I would suggest installing something like ublock origin or Adgaurd browser extension. The former has a steep learning curve but is more powerful, the latter is more simple and just set and forget. Unfortunately Google do not support extensions on Chrome for Android, which is why I use Firefox.
  8. New FOC App need asap

    The problem is what app is going to be the back end? There is no official app built by IPS (the forum software developers). The old app was built by Tapatalk which has become an untrustworthy buggy mess so we can't use that anymore. There are push notification services but you would still interact with the forum via the website. I had a look around when the site was first updated and I could find no solutions I would be happy with at the time for any of my own sites. I'll have a look again to see if I can suggest anything to the admins.
  9. Membership forum link

    I've sent the admin a PM incase tags weren't working.
  10. Does Clutch Pedal Switch Do Anything

    It also allows the ECU to help smooth out gear changes and maintain the correct idle speed. I'm not sure if the latter is present on a 2006 but on mine when I depress the clutch to engage first the revs go up a bit.
  11. ford radio code needed

    As has been already said by Clive, code sharing is not permitted on this club. Ford or an ebay service are your best options. Locking thread.
  12. In theory it should be possible. Would mean new hardware and software activation. Sometimes things are blocked from being modified on IDS though. You'll need to find a good and willing dealer to investigate if it's possible.
  13. Let us know how they sound :)
  14. Zetec S problems!!!

    They should get you to show them the issue anyway, otherwise how do they know what they are looking for, or how to re-produce it. Ask for the chief tech or service manager to come out and you'll show them.
  15. Zetec S problems!!!

    Try taking it in to Ford, then when the tech sits in the car to see the issue, it will fix itself. Worked for my Sync issue, haha.
