  1. Happy Birthday FincHy!

  2. "Tried taping the cap shut to stop" sorry for the lack on punctuation I'm on my phone.
  3. Thanks for the opinions lads, I tried taping the cap shur stop any movement just as a test and still got the rattle, just filled up re-inserted the nozzle a few times letting it lay under its own load as John suggested but still no luck :( guess ill have to see the dealer...oh the joy! Such a strange issue not a single problem in 3 years and this has to start in the last month of paying, typical ay? Haha
  4. Hello everyone! Has anyone experience an issue filling there Fords with fuel? my 2010 1.6 TDCI Focus for the last 2 months has become a ball ache to fill up with diesel! I literally have to fill at a snails pace or else the pump just clicks like its full, I've tried 5 different petrol stations of different brands and still the same issue. I also have a strange noise coming from the back right in the last month (coincidently near the fuel nozzle) when I go over bumps and pot holes I can hear something rattling. I had my 3 year service last month and reported the issues to Allen ford, they put it down to me refuelling incorrectly even though I've had no issues in 2 and a half years! and the rattling was a suspension brush which they lubricated to stop the rattle, as soon as I left the garage the rattle began again so there basically useless. Any thoughts? Regards, Finchy
  5. Once on DAB with some random station playing just use left and right to seek a station and when you've found one you want to keep e.g 'Radio 1' hold down one of the number keys e.g '1' and the station will then be stored to that number. hope this helps :)
  6. ......Really?
  7. Cheers guys, just sets the front off and looks better all round. The chrome lip looks so tacky! Had a friend do mine who is a professional at spraying cars and buffing dents so it was easy for him to do, best £10 I've spent on the car so far :-D He's offered to do my alloys black so I'm considering that next :-)
  8. Link To Steve's Guide: http://www.fordowner...-of-bonnet-lip/ Thanks to Steve's guide on how to remove the Lip i thought id give it a go and I'm very pleased with it and recommend it to anyone with a MK2.5 Focus. Driving around like this for a few days nearly made me cry :( But its worth it in the end! :)
  9. Wait sorry, I had to read that back. you want to play music over bluetooth? As I use the ipod Usb lead that Ford sell.
  10. It does work, if your music's playing and you receive a call the bluetooth kicks in and stops the music until you answer or decline the call.
  11. Sorry for the late reply, cheers for all your advise lads :-)
  12. I notice you guys have bigger engines than my baby 1.6, hope the blue fin still makes a considerable different. The stats say an extra 21 bhp. so 131 bhp.
  13. Cheers for advice guys, think ill get mine chipped then once I've got the funds :-) ill report on my experiences once I've done it.
  14. My focus is a 1.6 tdci. So you'd recommend a bluefin? Thanks for the info :-) what car do you have?
  15. Hey everyone, Has anyone had any experiences with the above? I have enquired at a local Ford specialist and they have told me that they only offer the bluefin chip at 399.99. Which will give my focus an extra 21bhp. Anyone reckon it's worth it? Cheers!
