  1. Noticed my coolant tank was very low earlier so topped it. But have now found the cause. Is this just a case of a new hose needed? Cheers
  2. OMG!😱
  3. okay thanks - I thought possibly something like that....panic over :)
  4. sorry - it didn't upload for some reason. should be there now :-)
  5. Hi All, Had bonnet up to check my oil level earlier, and noticed this hose not connected to anything?? anyone know what this is and if it should be connected to anything please? Not sure where this goes to, appears to go up towards the windscreen area? picture attached :-)
  6. Throttle body! Had exactly same issues. Never again since replacing. Not cheap fix mind.
  7. Thats correct jbeer! assuming you mean the instrument cluster being lit?? Its a backlit dash like all newish cars these days, doesnt matter if sidelights)headlights are activated or not the speedo and rev cluster is always back lit
  8. Yeah, mines just started doing this twaanggg too!! only on shutting boot or rear door (exhaust side). Its Been bugging me for weeks. I need to get a trolley jack under it and take a look. Dont seem to have any rattles whilst driving.
  9. Hi, there are various threads on here for your bluetooth question....not that easy I seem to recall but has been done. Regarding your global closing, because you disconnected battery, they need resetting, have you a handbook with the card, it explains how to do it in there... Its something like this Hold the switch down until the window is all the way down Release the switch then hold down again for 5 seconds Press the switch so the window goes all the way up Release the switch and press it up, again for 5 seconds The window will now be set for one touch and global opening/closing. Repeat this procedure for each individual window...
  10. Mk6 fiesta flame 2004 (04 plate) Anyone know much about the fluid to use top up please? I noticed it was low whilst checking oil and screenwash levels. Doesn't appear to be any leaks from first look. Fiesta handbook says it needs to meet Ford Specification WSA-M2C195-A but when I type this into ford parts uk website it says its red power steering fluid. the fluid doesnt look red inside the power steering filler tank??
  11. Hi guys Anyone know how easy this panel is to remove? Can it be done without jacking car up as It looks like its only held on with screws? I just need to check for any oil leaks as checked my level today and it was quite low, only had service 2months ago and it had 4.3ltrs according to paperwok. I just topped it up so will keep an eye on it, but from 1st view looking over the back of the engine towards the panel, there is some sort of residue on the panel, so my first thought was oil!! Just wanted to take panel off to have a quick look but don't have any ramps,to put car on and only got the crappy wheel jack
  12. Yeah that's it, the air the intake manifold assemby control part. How long has your light been on? the EML tend to re-set themselves and go out after so many ignition turns! but the ECU will still store the related fault code which triggered the light when read with a code reader.
  13. ________________________________________I didnt fit it due to not having the time so can't really advise sorry. I had the guy who usually services my car fit the part and at the same time asked him to clean throttle body, he actually said that although he did clean throttle body, it wasn't actually that bad, he said had seen worse! He use to work for fords and did say throttle bodys have been a major issue on the focus! I would recommend buying and fitting a new air intake manifold control assembly, the car has never run/driven so well!I the power is now phenomanal. Btw my car is,a 2008 facelift and the throttle body isnt even the original one, as I actually had a new throttle body installed by ford 2 yrs ago, this being a year after they also gave me a brand new engine due to a major f*** they caused on a routine service.
  14. Hi liam I had this part changed on my car and its been like a new car since having it done with much improved performance, economy...also had throttle body cleaned too! I dont have any how to fit images but check out this link may help.
