      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.

  2. Things I Don't Like

    I had a similar experience with eSpares before christmas. I accidentally dropped a large drawer from my freezer and it exploded everywhere so ordered a new drawer and front from them. 4 days later UPS arrives with a flimsy cardboard box that was literally flat like a pancake. Obviously I inspected the contents and found the new drawer and front in a worse condition than the dropped one. I refused to accept it, driver photographed the pizza box of plastic shrapnel and went away. Emailed eSpares advising them and thought all was in order. Received email in return 3 days later asking why I refused delivery, so promptly advised them to check with UPS as to where the returned 'box' was. Days went on and another (intact this time) drawer arrived in a box inside another box that could have taken a baby elephant. Happy enough until I checked enclosed invoice and found they had billed me for both drawers, 2x desparch postage and 1x return postage fee. Suffice to say many rude words were uttered down the phone and solution reached. Imagine my surprise when I started to get 3 emails a day asking me to rate their customer service. I have resisted replying so far knowing that my choice words will not be suitable for publishing on their website. I may hold off until I have smashed down a bottle of port and my spleen is suitably lubricated to vent all the words I can find that accurately convey my views. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  3. SYNC and choosing music

    Via bluetooth Sync will only play and skip within a pre-selected album. If you want full control of your music (voice and viewablew folders) you need to smash the music onto an USB stick. I use Mp3Tag to strip out track names so it forces the system to play album tracks in the correct order (as long as the files are tagged with the correct track numbers). You can also edit album art if you are like me and like to see the correct art displayed. I would also turn off Gracenote in the menu as it muddles everything up again.
  4. Sync 2 - Problem

    Valet mode is set by a self selected pin code that is chosen every time it is activated. Either the previous owner put it on and forgot or has been a tool and done it on purpose. As to ambient lights, on a Focus you can't change colours - it's just on or off. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk

  7. Identify missing screw

    The Ford parts system (Microcat) does not show the bolts as seperate items and therefore no size information is available. 3 options- 1, go to Ford and pay through the nose for a full maf kit. 2, take out the remaining bolt and get some hardware shop to match a replacement one up. 3, go to a scrappy with a screwdriver and scrounge one out of a scrapped car (most Ford models and many Volvo's use the same maf so bolts should match).

  8. What fuel do you use ?

    That's because you ARE cheap.
  9. What Mk is my car?

    If it looks like this picture then it's a MK3- If it looks like this photo then it's a facelift MK2 (MK2.5)-
  10. What fuel do you use ?

    All fuel sold in the UK has to meet minimum standards as laid down under the BS EN specifications. BS EN 590 for standard diesel. BS EN 228 for 95ron petrol Etc... This means that the 'base' fuel must meet a minimum criteria, the additives that different garage chains do or do not add to their fuels is outside of the BS EN test criteria.

  13. RS spoiler has arrived

    Just 2 wires, but they are the same colour and thickness so only cut / splice one at a time. Best way is to tin and solder the joints but crimps will work fine. In either case I strongly recommend you use heatshrink tubing on the joints for proper water sealing, tape just doesn't cut it (except maybe Self Amalgamating tape) To extend the washer pipe just buy some tubing and joints from a tropical fish shop or suchlike.
