  1. Embarrassed to ask...but need help

    Disconnect you battery and try jumping it again with the other motor. If you've got a duff battery you should notice the difference
  2. First Car Fiesta -

    I got this from argos the other week Goodmans Not a JVC I no, but the sound is really good considering I have a standard system and its almost £20 cheaper. Also has the aux in port which I use on my iPhone. With this unit the only other thing you would need is the facia plate (the big thing from the pic in your second link) to make the unit fit correctly in the extra large hole left by the original system.
  3. Ford Focus alloys

    Ive seen these and allen bolts used as locking nuts many times. Ive no idea where people get them though. As you say you wouldn't think it would be that easy
  4. Ford Focus alloys

    You mean a torx bit like this?

  6. Focus 1.8 16v random sensor!

    As above, larger/closer pic req. The bad idle could also be a split air hose. With the engine running listen out for any sucking/swooshing sounds. Best heard with your head under the bonnent and giving it a little rev
  7. Battery

    Nothing wrong with topping it up yourself. A big flat screwdriver or the flat end of a pry bar usually does the trick
  8. As I've said twice already... IT IS NOT RECOMMENDED TO JUMPSTART FORDS!!!
  9. streetka interior door handle

    Sounds like you've burst one of the plastic clips joining the rods to actuate the lock in the door. The door panel will need to be removed to see which has come undone. The reason why it was stiff in the first place is probably because of the lock mechanism. There's a spring that likes to fall out of it unfortunatly, so best to get this checked at the same time
  10. focus fault codes

    If the car has been repaired and the fault codes cleared they shouldn't reappear unless the repair hasn't been carried out correctly or the codes cleared correctly. Codes can reappear almost instanlty but can take as much as 30-40mins by the time the ecu can do a full systems check. The car must be running constantly for this amount of time To get into the DTC dash check press and hold the trip reset and turn the ignition on. Release when it starts the dial sweep. Keep pressing the trip reset untill it comes to the DTC screen (around 6 times)
  11. Gearbox oil

    The fill plug will either be the reverse light switch or near it. It can be seen from looking under the vehicle about half way up. The drain plug is nearer the bottom (obviously) and is usually a hex key bolt. The oil is 75w-90 and gets filled untill it it level with the fill plug (about 2ltrs)
  12. Engine misfire

    The rotten eggs smell will be your cat. Thing is cats don't just fail. The missfire has probably caused it to fail and replacing your cat won't solve the problem. The missfire is probably caused by a faulty coil pack or the plug leads but you would usually get a wet plug on the failing cylinder. When the engine is missfiring pull a lead of one at a time. The engine should almost cut out if that cylinder is still firing (because it will only be running on at most 2 cylinders) If the engine doesn't change then you know that's the faulty cylinder.
  13. unknown switch

    Sounds like an after market switch. Whatever it was used for has probaply been removed but the switch has been left to save a hole being in the dash. A picture would be helpfull
  14. New Fiesta 1.6 Recall - The Details!

    Diesels create the vacuum for the assisted brakes in a completely different way to petrol engines so i would think diesels aren't effected
  15. heater control valve

    Not sure on the vans but if it has got one it's likley to be at the bulkhead. Follow the coolant pipes and you should find it
