  1. Ok so i tried changing the bulb holder today and it didn't solve the problem, does the reverse light run off a fuse somewhere? The cars going in for an MOT on Friday so maybe i'l just let them figure it out :P
  2. thanks for your help. Adam
  3. ok thanks, should be an easier job than getting to the reverse sensor i guess.
  4. No, are they common to fail? The odd thing is that the rear wiper still comes on when you select reverse with the windscreen wipers on...
  5. Hi, the reversing lamp on my mk 2 focus 1.6 has stopped working. I've tried replacing the bulb but this hasn't fixed it so i assume the switch must be faulty. Were abouts is the switch located on the gearbox, how hard is it to get to as the battery and airbox etc sit above the gearbox? Any help would be great. Thanks Adam.
  6. Hi, Currently looking at replacing the tyres on my mk 2 Focus zetec as it has budgets all round at the moment and they don't inspire much confidence grip wise. What tyres were originally spec'd for the car when it was new? and can anyone reccomend a good set tyres for all round driving conditions.] Thanks.
  7. Hi, my girlfriends 1.4 fiesta is losing coolant, initially i suspected it could be head gasket failure as there was some brown gunk around the oil filler, however it dosen't have any other symptoms; it never overheats and theres no white smoke coming from the exhaust. Any common issues with this engine that may be causing this? Thanks.
  8. How would i go about doing that? Thanks.
  9. no it feels fine, just it seems to allow the tailgate to move around too much hence the rattle.
  10. Hey everyone, i have a mk2 Focus with a rattly tailgate when going over a rough surface. It can be cured by putting tape around the striker plate for the catch but this wears away over time. Is there a permanent cure fo the problem? Thanks.
  11. The aircon in my focus dosen't blow cold, not sure if it just needs a regas or something more serious. I also experience no change in engine load/sound when i switch it on.
  12. Oh right so they're basically HDI engines then, will keep a lookout for a 1.8 then by the sound of things.
  13. Cheers, have you had any problems with it since you've owned it?
  14. I currently have a 1.6 petrol mk2 Focus which i like alot, however a potential new job will mean that my mileage could increase drastically so now i'm considering getting a diesel. I'd like to stick with a Focus mk2/2.5 but not sure which engine to go for as there seems to be 3 different units used 1.6,1.8 and 2.0. Which is the pick of the bunch in terms of reliability and fuel economy. Thanks.
