  1. What Have You Learned Today??

    I learned today that the likes of Deloittes, KPMG, Earnst & Young and PWC charge extortionate rates when they really don't have a clue about corporate finances. Think I should apply for a job with one of these.
  2. MK3 focus - Yes or No

    I think you've just been unlucky with your 1.8 Sport. I've had a Mk1, 2x Mk2.5 and the Mk3 ST and I have never even had to change a bulb. I have always been able to garage my cars which I think makes a lot of difference to the reliability (certainly the electrics). It seems most makes have more issues if they are subject to damp conditions most of the year.
  3. identify these clocks please

    It looks like Focus Mk2.5 clocks for the versions with Satnav. However the centre screen is normally red rather than black with blue text.
  4. Headlights

    The Osrams are legal.
  5. Focus Red Edition 184BHP

    I don't believe you can download it yourself. Its a main dealer only activity in this country which stinks as they can download it themselves in the US.
  6. Engine malfunction

    I hope its not terminal. Please let us know how you got on.
  7. Aircon Fan Not Working

    Is it this type with the heated front screen? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-FOCUS-MK1-aircon-air-con-heated-front-rear-window-switches-Switch-Pack-/111991513098?hash=item1a1336e00a:g:c90AAOSwz2lXBuHt or this one without the heated front screen: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-FOCUS-MK1-98-04-3-BUTTON-AC-AIRCON-REAR-DEMISTER-SWITCH-FREE-UK-POST-/281674637427?hash=item41951de073:g:9WEAAOSwBahVPXWe
  8. Headlights

    I like these: http://astore.amazon.co.uk/thederangeddr-21/images/B00EPLCPRG
  9. HELP What Is Wrong????

    Both front wheels need to be tracked to the right to straighten the steering wheel up.
  10. Engine malfunction

    When the EML light came on, was it flashing? If so you are supposed to stop the car immediately to avoid damaging the engine. If the light came on without flashing, then I am surprised you suffered a total failure.
  11. HELP what is wrong????

    Surely they should have re-tracked it with the steering wheel centred?
  12. Wind deflector noise

    I left the clips out when I fitted the Heko's to my Mk 2.5 when I had it. Still had the increased wind noise but I got used to it.
  13. Passenger front electric window

    Can you check to see if you are getting a live to the switches. If your not getting a live at the passenger door then it could be the loom where it passes through to the door. If your getting a live at both then it is most likely the wiring to the motor or the motor itself.
  14. Help choosing Wind Deflectors

    I had Team Heko on my 2.5 Focus. The fit was good but did cause a bit of wind noise at speed. I haven't fitted to my Mk 3 ST as they don't provide any real benefit and are only good for looks.
  15. Sun blinds for FIESTA ZETEC S RED - HELP

    Try these. I had these on my Mk 2.5 Sport and they fitted great and looked great. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-Fiesta-3dr-08-ON-UV-CAR-SHADES-WINDOW-SUN-BLINDS-PRIVACY-GLASS-TINT-BLACK-/310975900939?hash=item48679bad0b:g:TYgAAOSw7NNT~ez4
