  1. Yo Lenny, it's only on the driver's side so I doubt it is that.
  2. I have a leak in my focus which I have now narrowed down to probably being either a windscreen leak or bulkhead. I was told by someone that taking it to a generic garage would not be the best thing to do, is this true? Can you recommend me somewhere better to take it so that I can finally stop my footwell getting damp! Thank you :)
  3. Think I found it, no leak there though. To check if it's a bulkhead seal issue, who do you recommend I take it to? To take it to a general garage would not be the best option, right?
  4. Any chance you could provide any imagery for the location of the AC drain tube Arthur? There are a few tubes around where you said to look...
  5. Thanks Arthur, that's some very useful information, I will check those things after it has stopped raining.
  6. Don't have a sunroof, read somewhere about the ac drain being blocked, but don't know where the drain is, will try looking into that more :)
  7. The leak seems to be coming from the right side of the driver's footwell though, not near the dash, would this still indicate it coming from the bulkhead?
  8. Hey guys, So I noticed a couple of weeks back that the driver's foot-well carpet was wet. I pulled back the carpet to find a pool of water. The insulation stuck to the carpet was soaked and the white insulation under the pedals was also soaked. It took me a week to dry with leaving the doors open and using a hair dryer. I disinfected all the insulation to prevent further mould. However I now have more water and am not totally sure where it's coming from. I am quite sure it is coming from the outside of the car, as it seems to be wetter after it has rained, but can't be 100%. The water seems to be coming from under the white insulation that lies under the pedals, but I obviously can't see right under it as the insulation only pulls up so far. Any ideas? I am looking to take it for the windscreen to be looked at. I was told to take it to a windscreen and sunroof specialist as they will have more specific knowledge of where to look to find the leak. I don't want to take it to a garage and it be there for days costing me loads of money. I can't seem to find any windscreen or sunroof specialists around Leicester though. Any help would be most appreciated. The car is a 2006 Focus 1.8 TDCI MK2.
  9. Hey Jay, I looked at that unit first, but as I said before that is a unit that I feel looks like a bit sliced off of a hi-fi lol. I just don't like the bright lights all over it. Thanks for your suggestions, I'll have a look around on Amazon. Yeah sounds like you have a few things to tinker with on your focus :p
  10. HAHAHA I am sorry to laugh at your pain, but that did make me chuckle, good luck buddy, it's a nice unit, hope you get it looking as you want it to. My problem is I have a low budget, but am very much against cheap looking units that look like someone sliced the front off of a hi-fi and slapped it on where the stereo used to be :p That is why I chose the KW-AV61BT, or else I would have gone for this http://www.caraudiocentre.co.uk/product_m-jvc-kw-av71bt_p-31187.htm A minimal look is best I feel.
  11. Much appreciated Clive :) How's things going with your focus? I haven't been on here in a little while. I think my reversing switch on the gearbox has broken, as I have checked the bulb and fuse and all seems fine :S It's always something, am I right?
  12. Thanks for the advice man. I read your thread, lol, seems you got a little peeved off to say the least :p I am glad I am not going about this alone, though I must say you have kind of put me off a bit. I might just get the pros at the audio shop to do it for me...
  13. Ok I'll look into it, thanks for highlighting it :)
  14. It's suited for both the US and UK market afaik as it has AM and FM radio. I would get one with DAB but can't afford it. I don't listen to the radio anyway, it will just be ipod all the way!
  15. Hi guys, I am looking to replace my 6000 CD with this double din unit http://www.caraudiocentre.co.uk/product_m-jvc-kw-av61bt_p-31188.htm I am a complete beginner and don't trust myself to mess with the electrics on my car so would anyone be generous enough to give me a hand if you live near to wigston in Leicester? Also could someone direct me to which cables and such I need to buy so that it will work with the steering wheel controls?
