  1. I have had my tracking checked in the past, they used a Laser device but before they did any adjustments they clamped the steering wheel centrally. They fitted things to ALL four wheels, maybe they, someone forgot to clamp the steering wheel first, or they were not properly trained, apparently it is possible to adjust all four wheels !. I would defiantly take it back.
  2. OK, thanks. Should have realised.
  3. I have a 2011 Focus Tit X and in the top of the glove box is a mystery fitting, it is about CD size but they are a loose fit. It is quite deep front to back. [see photograph] anyone any ideas.
  4. If, like my car of a similar spec, you have a Sony radio, there should be a button just above the Red triangular hazard warning light switch. It has a picture of a padlock on it, and when the doors are locked, which you will hear, a tiny yellow light in the switch illuminates.
  5. Does anyone know why the time does not auto update on a DAB radio in a car. The ones in the house do, but not in the car. I have owned several Ford cars with DAB radios and none of them have ever auto updated the time. Like today for instance when the clocks have gone forward. The DAB radio in my kitchen has updated the time even though it was not switched on.
  6. All this goes to show how important it is what you tell your insurers, or more importantly what you don't !!. Don't forget they record the conversations that they have with you when you are taking out insurance.
  7. Outside temp about +3 to 4, sat in my 1.6TDi with the engine ticking over, to prevent me getting hypothermia whilst waiting for the Misses, and the temperature gauge goes from the usual 90 degrees down to min reading which is 60 degrees. The climate was set to 21 degrees both sides, and the fan was running. The gauge went back to it's normal reading when I drove away. Question is, why did the gauge go back to it's minimum reading ? None of my previous fords did this.
  8. I have found what I think is a good site for finding out tyre pressures for Fords and other car makes, plus a lot of other information about tyres. Just select the tab 'Tyre Info' under the T in pure Tyre, then select Tyres pressure index, then click on the Ford Badge. The site is at http://www.puretyre.co.uk/
  9. OK, thanks, I'll check this out.
  10. OK, so does anyone know how far the key has to be from the car before you are unable to start the car ?.
  11. I too was very sceptical about it so I went to a road without any passing traffic to try it. It worked fine, although I have not used it in 'anger' yet. It is quite unnerving to use, although as you have control of the clutch and accelorator, so you in control all the time.
  12. My nearside blade used to make a real loud knock, like it wase hitting the nearside windscreen pillar. Replaced them with a Ford pair and now they are completely silent in operation. Huge difference. They were on the car when I bought it, so don't know what make they were.
  13. OK, thats fine, thanks. It just seems a little odd to hear it after the car unlocks.
