  1. Thermostat opening temp duratec petrol engine

    Hi peeps, so the issue is that mine is stuck open and def needs replacing. However looking at the third party options the opening temps range between 80-98C... So wanting to know what the official ford version opens at, as assume the ECU will be programmed for a certain temp along with the matched radiator fan on temp. (Otherwise would get some confusing behaviour).
  2. Hi All, Quick question that I've failed to find the information on a search of the forums or on the internet - got an issue with my S-Max's thermostat: What temperature does the official Ford thermostat rated to open on a 2.0l Petrol Duratec HE engine 145ps. Other third-party versions seems to be anything from 80C to 92C - confusing! Part number 1476110 Focus MK2 1.8/2.0 Petrol Thermostat & HousingFits 1.8 Duratec (125PS) Petrol EngineFits 2.0 Duratec (145PS) Petrol EngineFits From: 29-03-2004 To: 15-01-2008 Thanks.

  4. Child Car Seat Tether Anchor

    So, it gets even funnier.... When cleaning the car today I came across a sticker from the second official Ford ISO FIX kit (I had chucked it away from the first one), which at the time I had no idea about, so stuck it next to the bracket. However, this now makes perfect sense of the manual, as it is for placing in the boot near the behind the seat tether anchor point/luggage point (as highlighted in the manual in great detail). If this had a been as new/factory installed from Ford all of this would have already been installed in the appropriate places and the manual would have made perfect sense to start with! [emoji23] Typical that there were no instructions about this in the kit or wider actual knowledge about it from Ford.
  5. Child Car Seat Tether Anchor

    Hi, To dig up an old thread - something's not quite right here. Our 2006 MK2 Ford Focus Manual does indicate the the luggage points near the back seats *are* a top tether point. In terms of the boot floor crash issue, the anchor point is so close to the back of the seats this seems not an issue in this case. Thoughts?
  6. Top tether car seat mk2

    Hi All, The manual for my MK2 2006 focus states that top tether anchor point is in the boot: Now, from having previously searched relevant forums for top tether advice or seems that most people seem to think that these are also the boot luggage anchors, stating that these aren't to be used for top tethers as not rated or boot would crumple in a rear-end collision/and/or that top tethers weren't around until 2011 MK3 model. Ford UK have no clue...and not going to local dealer as they have even less clue! I think that as the manual states these are top tether and these are welded that these are probably ok to use, as well as being near the rear of the seats, rather than the end of the car. Wondered if anyone had any other knowledge or advice?
  7. Ford dealer has broken my air intake box

    Thanks for your reply. They sorted it out in the end.... Didn't admit fault but did it for free [emoji23]
  8. Brake/Clutch Fluid leak....

    Thanks for your replies... will have a closer look at the lines into that area. As I had the clutch done at about 103k miles would the concentric slave cylinder have been replaced as a standard practice along with the clutch? As I've also probably got a main rear seal leak on the oil side it may be "ok" having it sorted as the gearbox would have to come out for that too.
  9. Brake/Clutch Fluid leak....

    Hey, quick question... Having slow fluid loss from brake fluid reservoir. Have checked all brake lines etc and have found staining on the behlhousing near the clutch. This looks to be on the gearbox side of the transmission, but it's def not gearbox fluid. As the brake/clutch fluid is shared is it possible that the clutch could be leaking it, and if so is it a seal gone or something more serious. TIA.
  10. Ford dealer has broken my air intake box

    I'm more concerned that there might not be a proper seal past the filter?
  11. Ford dealer has broken my air intake box

    I noticed it before I drove away and got them to have a look, but the tech that worked on the vehicle had already left. They're contacting me tomorrow.
  12. Help! Ford dealer has broken my air intake box when replacing filter.... Is it safe to drive (they didn't even say)?
  13. It's an oil leak! Help for fix

    Out of interest does this section get removed when a clutch is replaced?
  14. It's an oil leak! Help for fix

    Hey, if it helps from this pic the bolthead side is on the oil pan side, the side where the drip is coming from is on the next section.
  15. It's an oil leak! Help for fix

    Hey, Car has been drinking oil for past 6 months or so. Checked it wasn't burning it. Finally got round for the UV dye test... After a 20min drive can clearly see where the leak is coming from (see attached pics). A bit of a relief as thought it was coming from much higher from the top of the engine or PVC pipes or oil filter, but that must be black road gunk all above. Is this a oil pan gasket leak? How fixable are these on a MK2 Petrol... A pain? Thanks.
