  2. Drivers Door Compatability Estate/hatchback

    Thanks! Will try and find an estate version! Regards Steve
  3. Hello all, I have a 2005 Mk 2 estate with a damaged drivers door. Will a door from a hatchback fit? I have seen a few on ebay-but all for sallons-they look the same-but any advice would be appreciated. Thanks Steve
  4. Battery Problem

    I got a calcium from Halfrauds for £50 with a three year guarantee-needed it then and there./ steve
  5. Timing Belt Renewal.

    Many thanks yet again. Will get it done in the New Year. Thanks Steve
  6. Timing Belt Renewal.

    Hello all, Have had a look but cannot find the answer! Wife has a 55 plate 100hp 1.6 petrol. It has done 55000miles. At what point does the timing belt need replacing on these? My old Omega's were 50000 miles. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Many thanks Steve
  7. Battery Problem

    Just a quick update. Wife kept saying there was nothing wrong with her car-it must be me imagining things. Then it refused to start for her outside the son's school-ha! ha! Put a new battery on and has been fine. many thanks Stevve
  8. Battery Problem

    Many thanks for both answers. I will get a new battery and keep you posted. Regards Steve
  9. Battery Problem

    Evening all, I have a 55 plate 1.6 100bhp estate. Recently when starting it struggles to turn over and I can see a front light coming on from inside the car. The car then starts. It will start no problem a few times and then this problem reoccurs. I suspect the battery, but have never had one behave like this before-perhaps it is a feature of the calcim battery. Any thoughts before I buy a battery will be greatly appreciated. Thanks Steve
  10. Thule Cycle Carrier

    Thanks, Have found that Thule sell flat headed bolts to slide into the track to overcome the problem. £3 each so I still think I will drill and use the nuts and bolts I have in my garage. Cheers Steve
  11. Thule Cycle Carrier

    Morning all, Recently bought a set of genuine Ford roofbars of ebay for my 2005 Focus Estate. Tried fitting my Thule Cycle Carrier but the brackets that go around the bar are too small. Looks like I'm going to have to drill and bolt the carrier on. Keeps me occupied! Steve
  12. Headlight Bulb Replacement 2005/6 Focus

    Changed the bulb this morning - took 5 mins and very easy. Many thanks again James! Steve
  13. Headlight Bulb Replacement 2005/6 Focus

    Many thanks James. Regards Steve
  14. Evening all, The headlight bulb has blown on the wifes 55 plate Focus. I went to change it but noticed access to the rear of the unit was very tight. Does the complete headlamp need to be removed ( :() and if so how? Many thanks Steve
  15. Hesitating And Not So Good Mpg

    Thanks, Coil pack and plugs were fitted at a Ford main dealer (brother in law works there). it doesn't seem to be a misfire-it's as if its going uh-uh-uh-a bit like fuel starvation (the wife doesn't notice it). I don't think it's getting anywhere near 36mpg. I'll check the plug gaps as well. Cheers Steve
