  1. have you put the right calliper on the right side?
  2. Headlights: Driving Abroad

    do you have projection lens headlights fitted? if so you will have a lever inside the headlight to flatten the flick to the left. if not then the stickers will do the same.
  3. 1.6 To 1.8 Engine Swop

    dont forget to tell the DVLA of the engine swap
  4. my mate tried that with his brothers impreza and he said that the clutch didnt slip. i told him to put it in 5th at 30 and floor it it slipped
  5. best way to check for a slipping clutch is to put it in 5th at 30 and floor it. if the revs rise faster than the speed, the clutch is knackered.
  6. no fuel filter fitted to the ti-vct engine. i say stop being tight and tank it and then see what your getting. my mums saloon gets 27-30 MPG round town and a tank last about 300-325 miles
  7. Ford S-Max 2.5T Misfire

    Volvos used to have troubles with a similar problem and it turned out the throttle required recalibrating. we'd plug it in to VIDA, Volvos diagnostic machine and in there we would recalibrate the throttle. what it would do is open and close the throttle butterfly several times. if it passed the car would go back to the customer, if it failed... i dont know what happened next as everyone i did passed.
  8. Renewal Time - Taking The Mick?

    you think your quotes are bad Edward... mine are worse. my mum, who is 56, pays £400 for a 1.6 petrol, 55 reg (2006 registered) focus saloon with my dad as a named driver and she had well over 7 years NCB. when we were looking to replace out MK1 focus we got a quote for a 2.0 petrol honda civic and it was £800, DOUBLE what we were paying for out focus with the same size engine i drive a 1.1 petrol, 55 reg (2005 registered) smart forfour with my mum as a named driver. i have (now) 4 years NCB with 1 claim to my name and i payed £660 for the year.. whilst looking for 'cheaper quotes' the cheapest i found was just under £1000 and they went all the way up to £9000!!!! im only 26 and in STILL getting quotes close to and over £1000 . im sure that insurance companies think of a number then double it!
  9. Auto Headlights Faulty Already?

    nothing wrong with driving with your headlights on... Volvo have been doing this for years. my mums focus has auto lights and seem to work as they should... although i have noticed that they switch to sidelights for a while before switching off. iv notices this in several occasions whilst driving through the tunnels on the Leeds inner ring road and then coming up the slip road from under the car park to the traffic lights at the top where the old Halifax bank HQ (i think) was.
  10. Ford S-Max 2.5T Misfire

    have you had the fuel filter changed?
  11. Fiesta Zetec 2010 Diesel Mpg Symbol?

    have you read the hand book to see what the symbol means? could you take a picture and post it on here so we know what we are looking at
  12. Diesel Runaway !??

    have you checked the oil level? diesels will run on there own oil until they seize.
  13. 06 Ford Focus Mk2 Welcome Lights

    headlights or interior lights? i don't quite understand and its quite difficult to read when you use a capital letters at the beginning of every word
  14. 06 Ford Focus Mk2 Welcome Lights

    pull the indicator switch towards you as if to flash your main beam. they are more of a 'guide me home light'
  15. any news for continental driving?
