      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Hi Does anyone know to change the bulbs in the front fog lights on the standard focus (mk3.5)? Mark...
  2. So I pick up my 65 plate focus on Thursday and was looking at advice at what upholstery spray I can use to protect it from spills etc. With a new born baby I want to have this done before the weekend. Any advice? Mark...
  3. Found a video online and it seems they just clip in. To to be honest I can't imagine they would notice the difference between the titanium fog insert compared to the zetec. Thanks for advice about the bulbs and the other queries. Mark...
  4. Anyone? Have done a search and can't seem to find the answers. Anyone also know how easy it is to replace the fog surrounds? Thinking of changing them to the zetec s or titanium surrounds.
  5. Hi, I've just purchased a 65 plate shadow black Focus with appearance pack and collect it on Thursday. I'm wondering is there any simple mod that cans be done? What bulbs are in the boot and in the interior lights? Can led be put in these? If I take it to ford to retrofit rear parking sensors, can they enable the sensor warning to appear on the sync 2 screen? Would also like to add the chrome insert from the fog lights on the titanium spec focus. Are these available to buy seperately? Any other wee tips or mods that can be done? Mark..
  6. Is it just that cable I need to enable the sat mac element or also access to a computer?
  7. Possibly a long shot but Is there anywhere that someone can do this for you in Northern Ireland? I don't have a laptop or computer unfortunately and I'm not very PC literate so don't think I would know how to do it even if I did. Also can it be done on a standard zetec 16 plate with just the normal sync 2.
  8. Hi, I've been trying for a few hours to remove the rear brake light cluster so I can replace a blown bulb. But have had no joy removing the cluster from the car, I've removed the screws that keep the light in place and have tried to look in th boot behind the interior to check for the switches that keep the light secure. Can anyone shed any light on how to do this. Mark...
  9. Very Noisy Inside Focus

    Good to know that it's not only my car then. It got that bad, that I got the missus to drive down the motorway with me in the back to see how bad it was.
  10. Hi, I've have had my 2010 focus 5 door since May and love it, but there's one gripe. When you go over 40 mph, whether it be in the front or the back, the road noise is very loud as if a window is down or one of the seals round the door is off. It's noticeable in the front, but in the back it's quite bad and when on the motorway at 70, you struggle to have a conversation with people sitting in the front. Is this normal? Mark...
  11. Cheers for that Lenny. People say there light comes on at 50 then 25. But mines comes on at 64 miles. Lenny I also noticed your car beeps when going through the menu and pressing the button on the stalk, how was this enabled as mines doesn't do this. Mark...
  12. Anyone still have the modified ones for sale? Or anyone with one in Northern Ireland, near Belfast. Wouldn't mind my car auto locking and the radio display on the front cluster. Mark...
  13. Right so love my wee focus, but a couple of issues I've noticed. 1st when I lock the car the display cluster (miles, times etc) stays on for about 10-20 mins. Is this normal? 2nd issue is when the fuel light first comes it only makes a faint noise, then doesn't make another noise after this. My previous car and other fords I've noticed, every time you restart the car you will hear the beep again for the low fuel warning. Should this happen or is mines normal? Mark...
  14. Focus Mk2 & Mk2.5 Footwell Lights

    Anyone recommend bright white bulbs for the holders? I got these after buying a couple of cheap 501s to make sure the holders were wired. The cheap yellow lights give a better spread of light, but obviously the ones below are a nice white colour, but don't fill the footwells as good. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/4-x-8-XENON-WHITE-SMD-LED-501-T10-W5W-WEDGE-CANBUS-NO-ERROR-FREE-SIDE-LIGHT-BULB-/320929397323?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item4ab8e1fa4b Any advice would be great. Thanks
