      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.

  1. Sync radio in mk3 focus

    It's not a direct swap sadly without a lot of extra money being spent on upgrades to the ACM, APIM and other related modules. It can be done but is very expensive.
  2. Focus 2015, no clutch.

    1.5 TDCi. Its like a metal grinding squeal!
  3. Focus 2015, no clutch.

    It only seems to be once the car is warm that it happens but its been serviced recently and there isn't any reported oil leak, and i've not been through any big puddles.
  4. Focus 2015, no clutch.

    On the MK3.5 in general?
  5. Focus 2015, no clutch.

    I've not had this issue but my clutch makes an almighty squeal when pulling away! Ford can't seem to recreate it though.
  6. USB audio problem

    Have you got a manual for your car? It's listed there. I can't remember off the top of my head which to pull. I know on mine I think its something like 62 or something.
  7. Mk2 headlight bulbs

    I'm surprised you didn't get a fail or pulled for your HIDs in reflectors tbh. They spray light out like no ones business and blind people. I absolutely hate people who install these bulbs without conforming to the specification required to have these bulbs in the first place.
  8. USB audio problem

    Or pulling the fuse and giving it a reboot.
  9. Focus ST Line X 140

    I don't get the listing anymore like I used to. Have Ford changed this?
  10. Focus 2016 - WiFi connection, whats the benefits?

    Yup an almighty TWO features. Vehicle health report and Sync services which allowed you to send predefined routes from Google Maps or Mapquest to your unit. My understanding is that this no longer works!
  11. Focus 2016 - WiFi connection, whats the benefits?

    I've had a discussion with some users in the states and AppLink was never enabled on MyFordTouch either.
  12. Focus 2016 - WiFi connection, whats the benefits?

    My understanding is that Sync 2 was never a completed product and Ford didn't bother to finish it because they introduced Sync 3. There is quite a bit of documentation floating about the internet about Sync 2 and Applink, and other "app" related stuff on the units that doesn't exist on production devices..
  13. Rubbish Aerial Reception Mk2 Ford Focus

    Sounds like a case of CCC. Cheap Chinese Cr... Some of the adaptors you can get give off so much EMI (electromagnetic interference) due to poor testing and quality control standards it's stupid. P.s next time check the date on a thread, if its really old, start a new one as otherwise it creates unnecessary bumps of topics.
  14. Active City Stop

    Good to know its working at 28mph! I've activated mine driving towards a bush before. Gave the passenger a bit of a shock! You know if you have it because of the million sensors in the window where the rear view mirror is!
  15. 1.5TDCi engine running issues

    Doesn't matter when the recall was. The car is under warranty until 2018 assuming your profile is correct, and so are the new parts. Have you had your fuel filter changed at service yet? This maybe causing issues too. My MPG dropped until I had mine changed. Do you do a lot of city start/stop driving as opposed to long A road/M road driving?
