  1. Ford Focus mk2 hatchback automatic boot

    I'm fairly certain what you are seeing there is stronger compression springs. This is how to do it... http://www.fordwiki.co.uk/index.php?title=Automatic_boot_opening_Mondeo_Mk3
  2. Thanks! It turns out its steel. Have just received delivery and it seems to be a good quality part at least.
  3. Hi, I was recently involved in a low speed crash and the passenger side door and front wing took damage. I'd like to replace the wing and found this on ebay... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FOCUS-MK4-08-11-FRONT-WING-PASSENGERS-SIDE-LEFT-NEARSIDE-/221441671214?fits=Car+Make%3AFord%7CModel%3AFocus&hash=item338ef3c02e:g:928AAOxynwlTdiAY Are these parts suitable to use? Isn't the original wing a metal part and I'm assuming this is some sort of GRP or something. Would this be ok to use as a replacement? thanks!
  4. Hi Lenny,

    Quick question....you once purchased this wheel well filler pad for your focus and I was wondering if you had a part number or would be able to tell how you bought it. I can't seem to find them anywhere online. Hoping you can help!

    Thanks!

      Okay no problem. Thanks...I'll contact them and see what they say.

  5. Custom Sized Number Plate

    Ahh sorry I didn't realise show plates for sale here in the UK were illegal! I just presumed it was ok as long as they were only used at events etc
  6. Custom Sized Number Plate

    Went with ProRegPlates in the end...used their Showplate designer and just added the legal details such as BS Mark at the bottom myself. Can recommend them if you want a totally custom sized number plate like mine which is 430mm x 135mm that you can make online using their designer...delivery was fast too!
  7. PDF Downloads

    Does anyone know when this will be back?!
  8. Hi, Can someone confirm for me what these plugs are for? I know 3 and 4 are for front and rear windscreens. Is 5 for ESP button?And the others? Thanks! This next one is behind the glove compartment. I know 1 is for AUX input but what's 2 for?
  9. Custom Sized Number Plate

    Thanks @salsheikh. I'll fire off a few messages to some of the online sellers! The honeycomb grills look fantastic @wilto...I've seen very few pictures of these fitted to a Zetec S.Can't wait for some daylight to fit them myself! I also got the gloss black fog surrounds too which were seemingly thrown in for free...hopefully they will all set off my white car nicely.
  10. Custom Sized Number Plate

    Hi! Does anyone know of a place where i can order a custom sized number plate? I need one that is sized 430mm x 312mm. I do not intend to mess with spacing etc so thats fully legal. Would also of course need to have the BS mark and manufacturer and post code. I only ask because I've bought a new set of gloss black grills from my 2010 Facelift Focus (see picture) and it looks like the section reserved for mounting a number plate was for the asian market perhaps Any online avenues greatly appreciated! Thanks!
  11. Thanks...I guess I'll just enquire about modifications to this one first!
  12. Hi...I've just bought a lovely white 2009 Focus Zetec S. I loveeverything about the car except the exhaust just sounds monstrous...Imean it's over the top ridiculously loud! Is there any way to go about making this quieter i.e. would an exhaust specialist be able to change it or will Ihave to opt for a new exhaust altogether. I've attached pictures of the underside to show as best Icould how it's put together....it branches off intotwin pipes that have twin muffler tips on them. Thanks! Also...everything needs a good clean i know!! :o) Athique
  13. Happy Birthday Athique!

  14. Wiring On The Inside Of Rear Bumper

    Ah well...thought I might have had some sensors I didn't know about. Thanks!
  15. Hi, I just noticed this wiring on the inside of the rear bumper and the first thing that came to mind was parking sensor wiring...but I certainly don't have anything visible on the outside and I tried to take a picture of the label on the wiring which does seem to suggest some sort of parking distance control as it seems to say 15K868. Can someone identify this? Thanks!
