  1. No way of knowing if right brake pads I think. He can whistle now.
  2. Update. So car went in for pads and discs. I called garage and questioned him. Said don't take wheels off for mot and if passed pressure test then ok. So I asked how he knew it was the pads and discs? He sailed that's what's causing the noise. So.... When collecting car I was told discs ok but changed pads. The brake discs where now ok and didn't need changing. Drove car home only to hear metal scrapping noise. Returned car to garage. Mystery... Bloke looked and said it was his fault as bent something back to change bushes... Hmmmm..... Conning little so and so.
  3. Ok. Our 56 plate focus had it mot last Friday. It failed.. Bushes both sides front Blue Wipers Cost 240. Paid it and drove car home Monday only to be greeted by whistling sound. Phoned garage up and they said they'll collect and look. Today the car finally picked up only to find that the brake pads and discs need changing. Hold on....they passed MOT and failed straight away and will set back 140.... I am thinking that during the changing of bushes something happened causing damage to discs and pads. I am fuming. Any advise.

  5. Update: Each time it happens we slow down and are at low revs.....
  6. 56 plate
  7. Been getting this during the week. Red light appears. Then limp mode. Ran a diagnostic looks for error codes and got nothing? So pretty much clueless. Help?
  8. Looking for help. Need replacement bulb for fog lights on focus mk2. Told H11... Told H3 which we got and are not right. So H11?
  9. Been a while since I visited... Question. Since some yobs who thought they'd use the wing mirrors of our 05 Mk2 focus as footballs, we now need to replace. I have found driver and passenger replacements. However I have seen some with indicators. Will these work on our car? Many thanks in advance.
  10. Hello. Thank you for the replies. I have checked the seals and can't see anything suspect. Scratching my head.
  11. Merry Christmas to you ALL!! Been a while since posting on here so please forgive my lack of presence. OK, our trusted ford focus mk 2 is getting moisture in the rear footwell and boot. Had a shufty about and can't see holes or rust. Thinking seals? Throwing it out there to see what'll come back.
  12. @Stoney871 cheers matey. Plus there's' no juddering when setting of or slipping of the clutch.
  13. What is the life span for a clutch? Been told ours is on the way out. Car only has 38,000 miles on the clock and only used for school runs etc, nothing major. This is the same mechanic who forgot to add the mod kit to the power steering pump (he wasn't aware he said).....
  14. It was fixed, then we noticed leaking still. Returned to the garage and told they'd not fitted a mod kit with the pump..... so, back this week and it;ll be fixed FOC.
  15. Happened to me: The heated windscreen can fail on one side either its a simple fuse issue to which there are 2 1 for each side or some cars under the scuttle panel have the electrical ribbon loose which gets rubbed by the wipers when in motion causing it to fail. Power steering hose just behind the radiator and at the join to the pump are prone to leaks from corrosion recommend every 6 months applying grease to the area such as vaseline to prevent this.
