      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

    2002 1.8 Zetec
  1. Hi there, Engine warning light came on yesterday on my 1.8 Zetec Focus (2002). Lifestyle Ford (Tonbridge, Kent) ran their diagnostics and apparently the rear oxgygen heat sensor is showing that the catalytic converter is faulty. First, very surprised to hear this after just 57k miles. My previous Focus (1998) ran through to 96k miles with the original exhaust and cat! Second, Lifestyle Ford want £850 to replace the part. How can this be when Cats cost around £100? Any advice or views on this would be very welcomed. Many thanks, Miles (New Member).
