      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. Max Weight On The Boot Lid?

    Cheers for the replies so far. I'm looking to hang three bikes coming in at around 100lbs, 45kgs. I might be able to reduce some of this weight by removing the wheels to put into the boot, but there will already be a fourth bike in there... and four people's worth of kit. So I really doubt I'll have the room for the wheels :S I am a bit concerned that if the hinges go, the lid will be flipped into low Earth orbit, where it will be unobtainable. I've considered a toebar, but I can't afford one right now. --edit-- 100lbs plus the weight of the rack
  2. Focus Tdci 90 Econetic Estate

    I've the 90hp 1.6 too in estate form. I find the engine a bit too gutless to pull out into smalll gaps as I'm sure you'll find. Had no problems so far though it's a new car to me too.
  3. Max Weight On The Boot Lid?

    Hello all, first time user. Just picked up my first Ford Focus (MKII estate) so I'll probably be poking around from time to time. Would anyone be able to tell me how much weight the estate boot lid will take when mounting a bike rack? The racks I'm looking at are rated to 99lbs but I'm curious what the lid is able to hold. Cheers in advance
