  1. Hi, I've towed about half a tonne with mine, so what you're looking to do should be fine. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. Make sure also that you keep the fuel level at least quarter full, as below this any regen won't happen. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Glow plug indicator only comes on if the ambient temperature is low, also you'll get a warning in the instrument panel. To add Millers, etc; use the emergency funnel. I bought a spare off E-bay and keep it in the garage, as Millers is rather smelly; nearly as bad as diesel. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  4. Mk3 uses FoCCCus software. Find it at' Also check this out to make sure you have the correct drivers for the cable
  5. blanking plate

    Quite simply, it doesn't; if you try to blank the egr on these later 1.6 engines you will get an eml, as the valve senses pressure either side of the valve, unless someone knows different... Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. Disc front, drums on rear. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  7. There are some replacement switch panels on ebay, however they're not cheap. Prices around £50-60. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. Self-levelling is for the headlights; as for the front parking sensors, there are kits available. Enjoy your new car! Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  9. The only Ford headlamps with DRL's are the high-spec lamps with xenon headlights. To be legal you'd need headlamp washers and self-levelling sensors fitted as well. Think you'd find it a very expensive option to be honest. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  10. Just make sure the oil is changed regularly, likewise the fuel filter. Try to keep to branded rather than supermarket diesel, as this tends to have additives in it to help keep everything clean. Give it a hard run once or twice a week to keep the DPF clear. Above all, enjoy your new car, most of the bad stories relating to the 1.6 diesel are related to the earlier versions of Focus and have been sorted now (although I expect someone will prove me wrong).

  11. The only SYNC updates on Ford India are for the previous version, as fitted to the Mk3. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  12. Could be a dodgy clutch switch. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  13. The only fix is a new headlamp. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
  14. Is this what it looks like, 'cos mine has always been like this from new. Try changing the zoom settings. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  15. Yes Jim, as you guessed, it's just pausing while the glo plugs warm up. Mine does it too when cold, warm starts are instant. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
