  1. A vacuum bleeder is by far the best way to bleed the clutch and brakes. It requires an air compressor though. Sounds like you have an underlying problem.
  2. Looks to me like the tank has a crack in it.
  3. Can you post a picture? is the leak from the engine or gearbox? I've seen a few leaking reverse light switches.
  4. Could still be a 2008 engine if that's the change over time. The cambelt drives the camshaft from the fuel pump. The belt or chain drives the fuel pump.
  5. I don't believe that the fuel pump has seized up but if it genuinely has then it could snap the belt no problem. Get the covers off and see if the fuel pump spins.
  6. Tightening the handbrake adjuster without first inspecting the drums is a bad move.
  7. certainly was on the focus I've just repaired. you get a bolt and a ball joint type though. The ball joint type look exactly like the ones I've done on a mazda 3.
  8. only thing i can think of is that they are referring to the anti roll bar which has drop links/ball joints on either end of it.
  9. I'm not aware of any ball joints on the rear of the focus what exactly does the advisory on the mot say?
  10. the 'tie rod' goes between the steering rack and the 'tie or track rod end'
  11. ah you mean when rotated? it is a little noisy. Sorry it read to me that the input shaft was twisted lol
  12. the input shaft is twisted? no danger would i even attempt to fit that.
  13. Looking at the pics there is no way that is brake fluid, far too much of it and also wrong colour. an expensive day out for you.
  14. Loosen what nuts lol. One drop link had already snapped off and I cut the other one off. Other than the wheel nuts I didn't undo or remove anything else.
  15. It's 12 years old that's why -and it's a ford lol. The brake drum isn't that bad.
