  5. Hi All I have just opened the bonnet on my 2007 focus estate 1.8 tdci and now the warning light on the dash won't go off it just says "bonnet open" the Bonney closes fine and you can hear it lock, I have tried WD40 in the switch but still stays on. Any suggestions welcome Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  6. Thanks, I've done all that apart from starting with short bursts, il give that a try in the morning Is there a pump on the fuel tank? as I'm starting to think it's not pumping the fuel through to the filter
  7. How do you go about doing that, thought that's what I was doing by bleeding the from the top on the filter
  8. Hi All so my problem is I have changed the fuel filter on my Focus Estate 2007 1.8 TDCI and attempted to bleed the system via the Fuel filter after filling the fuel filter up with diesel first and there is no fuel coming through. I have tried bleeding it with the ignition on. I have tried easy start and the engine turns over but still doesn't start once I stop the easy start. I have placed a pipe in between the fuel filter and the inlet fuel line and no sign of fuel. the tank is half full Any suggestions greatly welcome please Thanks Bob
