  1. Mystery fitting

    OK, thanks. Should have realised.
  2. Mystery fitting

    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.
  3. 2010 keyless 1.6 tdci door locking

    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.
  4. 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.
  5. Factory fitted tinted windows?

    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.
  6. Keyless Start

  7. Coolant Temp Gauge Reading Too Low?

    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. Tyre Pressure Sensors

    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. Keyless Start

    OK, thanks, I'll check this out.
  10. Keyless Start

    OK, so does anyone know how far the key has to be from the car before you are unable to start the car ?.
  11. Park Assist

    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. Wiper Blades

    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. Electric Door Lock Release

    OK, thats fine, thanks. It just seems a little odd to hear it after the car unlocks.
  14. Electric Door Lock Release

    When I unlock my car using the remote and open the drivers door a second or two later I hear the electrical sound of the locks releasing. Is this a characteristic of the locking system or otherwise. Everything works OK so it's no big deal but it's just a bit weird. Previous Fords that I have owned did not do this.
