  1. Hi i own an 09 TDCi 1.6 Zetec Focus and from the day i got it i have heard a kinda 'squeaky ticky clicky' noise coming from engine. I have been to ford a number of times had the belt replaced which cost £70+ coz its not covered by warranty. I have been to other fords around North East, they then decided it was something to do with the tension on the belt, and i am still hearing this !Removed! noise. Has anyone got any idea what else this could be? Cheers Rach
  2. Hi all, I have an 09 focus 1.6 tdci and im finding it very difficult to remove the head lights has anybody got an easier way of getting them off?? Please dont same pull them hard coz i have tried and nearly took the front end off. Cheers Rachel
  3. Hi Sam i also drive a 1.6 focus zetec 09 reg... i love this car. i have had petrols and it was eating my money, i was going to the petrol station every 5days £40 everytime and since having my 1.6 tdci i put £60-£70 every 15-16 days. I would recommend getting the 1.6 ... i was like you back in october i couldnt decided between the 1.6 and 1.8 tdci, but i have noticed its a lot harder to find a 1.8 and i have read so many bad reviews about the 1.8 engine. When i was talking to the salesman at ford he said they had stopped making the 1.8 model due to so many problems. And another plus side to the 1.6 is the low road tax which also drew me into buying the smaller engine, as josh has mentioned. Go for it 1.6 all the way haha ;) Rachel
