  1. Morning: Last night I attempted in vain to change my reg plate lights (new bulb and housing, so removed the metal prongs from the cables and re-seated the housing including new bulb. It was unsuccessful and now the right reg plate bulb is now not working. On top of this the offside break light is not working, though only with the lights on. The brake seems to register the light. How can I rectify this situation as I'm beginning to think an auto-electrician may be the only option? Thanks for any help folks. Ben.
  2. Hi Alz and Gingerflame. You seem to be spot on with your advice based on the symptoms in this you tube video which is identical to mine. Not to find the part for my motor and to fit. Thanks a lot as this seems as though it should save me much money and time.
  3. That should be mark one
  4. Fan and blowers not functioning on 1-3 at all. Funnily fuctions on level 4. My car is a Ford focus mark 1 1
  5. Had the blower motor replaced about 3 years ago. However got a similar issue now I believe. Air con not working at all on levels 1, 2 and 3. Functions on 4 though a/c light not on then. Any ideas on cost and what the issue would be. Bit annoying as. I'm sure it cost kr over £300. Thanks.
  6. Done this already
  7. Having a spot of difficulty taking out my battery. The job should be simple, however I'm being hampered by a dodgy bolt. It twists fine after initially it was stuck with rust. That's all it does now twist but won't come out. Tried multiple tools but stubbornly refuses to come out. Any idea.
  8. I Have been installing a new Bluetooth radio in my mark one Ford Focus but during the last step of the process I have been attempting to feed the MIC wire through the back of the radio and out again past my footwell. I am having a few issues as I'm just not able to feed it out properly. Any common sense tips I can apply to this quandry?
  9. Cheers - Picking up a Bosch one later today. I'll fit it myself as apparently it's a doddle to do. Thanks again
  10. Hi folks. Any idea on a decent battery to get for my Ford Focus 2001 1.6 motor? Been accidentally flattened over the last year and was recommended to replace it.
  11. Need a spot of advice on what would be a fair price for a timing belt renewal. On the very edge of needing my timing belted changed. 83k miles and 13 year old Ford Focus 1.6 Ghia. Got a quote for replacement including water pump with parts, labour and Vat at £292. Is this the going rate? Seems quite high to me.
  12. Are these the ones you are talking about minnis - 22" 19" Front Bosch AeroTwin Aero Twin Flat Wiper Blades Windscreen Wipers eg.
  13. Got any websites or even high street stores to buy the Ford ones from?
  14. Hi: Can anyone recommend any good windscreen wiper blades (front only) for my 2001 Ford Focus 1.6. Thanks in advance.
  15. Hi: I have an intake fan fault (I have been told there's a crack on it) in my ford focus 1.6 2001 car. Makes a din and cuts out when it does which is especially bad when the air con is being used. As the weather is improving and getting warmer I can tell I'll be requiring this feature quite soon. What I'm really after is a trustworthy auto electrician who can do the job reliably and not charge the earth. So does anyone know any such folk in the Newcastle area? I could possibly travel up to 15 miles to get the job done. I need this by next Thursday, as that's when I've got a break from work. Thanks in advance, Favero.
