  1. Hello. Yep, I was going to get the whole lot done. If it needs doing of course.
  2. Hello all. My jalopy has developed a shudder that I can feel through the clutch pedal and audible rattle to go with it. It is reduced when I press the pedal down (in neutral), but still present. During driving there is a bit of a rubbing sound. Am I right in thinking that the Dual mass flywheel is dying? That'll be what a hefty remap does I suppose. If it is that, would is the opinion on Sachs DMF's? If I need one of course.
  3. Cool okey doke. I'll leave it be then :). The washers are fine. Cheers for the reply!
  4. Hello all. Car is mentioned under my avatar. Road water is getting in under the bonnet and making its way across the engine cover, air box, battery cover etc. Is there anything out there that can be installed to stop this? Or is it 'meant' happen in that air is meant to come into the engine bay? I'd rather not have water getting in there ideally, but if it is a result of something that needs to happen, so be it. Cheers Kye
  5. Sussed it. The PC had a wobbly and didn't get the settings and configurations across properly it would seem. I've flashed the camera, installed all the software again and it seems to be happier again. I'll report back on what happens. If all seems well, I'll put the capacitor back in (issues happened with that too).
  6. Hello folks. Is anyone having problems with their Mobius refusing to start recording once the ignition comes on? Mine is doing just that intermittently. It'll fire up a with a few start ups, then refuse to for one or two. I have to mass the buttons to get it to start recording. Not helpful as you can imagine. It is configured to run off internal and external power and to start recording once power is received. I'll have a look into it later and let you know what I find out.
  7. I have the same engine and my light kept coming on. It stayed on more times than off actually. No harm has come of it. I have changed the fuel I used to BP and/ or Shell and the light spends more time off now. I can't imagine a six mile journey in London is going to help matters much either. I'd be more worried about your Diesel particle filter than the EGR valve.
  8. Aha!! You star! Thank you very much! Now to find a way to access the orange female connector. What is it with Ford and their chub on for electrical tape?
  9. Hello all. Can anyone tell me where I can find on of these? Or what the connectors are called? Mucho thanks
  10. Hello all. Does anyone have an experience with the side hole jobbies on the 2.0TDCi engine? Rather interested in giving this a go. I miss the induction roar. I had a metal conical mushroom cone thing on my old 1.6 petrol. It made a right !Removed! racket! :D
  11. Ahh someone else who finds the beams poor as well. Mine don't go very far and have no definitive pattern either. I'm going to take it in somewhere to get the alignment checked soon. I'd rather pay for the peace of mind knowing they are been done properly. As for fitting the bulbs, they only fit one way I found. Keep us updated. It will be interested to see what you find out.
  12. Any idea where it is on a 2.0 TDCi? I'll have a look later.
  13. That doesn't sound like much good can come of it. I've not noticed any ill effects though. I'll not worry about it for the moment. Thank you for the replies, folks. :)
  14. A 2010 2.0 TDCi Focus. Here is an odd one. The issue as resolved it's self, but I'm baffled at what may have caused it. I got the car serviced yesterday. The oil and filter done (done several times already without issues), whatever else and the fuel filter. It was a 10 mile drive back from the garage to home without issue. The car was parked on a pavement with the left side up on the pavement. I drove the car for a short run that evening and that is where the rubbing/ knocking feeling on the accelerator started. The car started and idled as it should do and there was no rubbing on the brake or clutch. Upon pulling away and accelerating, the accelerator had said experience. Which is very odd to me as there is no direct link to the engine apart from the cable (which I'm not sure it has). The car was left alone for 90 minutes at my destination before I came back home. Same thing again on the throttle. I parked the car on the curb in the same manner again. Popped the bonnet, couldn't see nothing, had a poke about and found nothing loose (apart from a rubber pipe along the firewall behind the block (need to look into that)). Started the car again, moved it forwards and backwards a few feet a couple of times, took it around the block. Only to have the issue disappear! Very very odd! I can only thing that there may have been some air caught in the fuel line with the filter change? Anyone got any other ideas??
  15. My seals don't clear the window either. One aspect of the Mk2 I don't like compared to the Mark 1.
