      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. I've had a bit of a search and found a couple of similar topics, but want an answer specific to my model so thought it best to start a new thread. I've just purchased a 2007 focus zetec climate, and I have to say I'm very happy with it. It has electric wing mirrors that can be adjusted from a dial on the drivers side door. They are also beautiful big things that come in the same colour as the body of the car. They look great. Now, I notice some models of Focus have the power folding option which presumably means that the mirrors can fold in electronically from the inside of the Car - I'm pretty sure my car doesn't have this option, but what I want to know is, will the mirrors fold-in manually ? I've had a go and they both seem to be putting up quite a bit of resistance and obviously I don't want to snap the things off the Car so don't want to apply excessive force to something that is not meant to be moved anyway. So I guess the question is - are these types of mirror designed to be manually folded ? and if the answer is yes does anyone have any suggestion as to how to budge them as they seem to be stuck at the moment - is it just a case of grabbing the Bull by the horns as it were and using plenty of force, or would WD40 be suitable ? I'm guessing there's electrical stuff within the mirror and I don't want to damage anything if I can help it. If anyone can advise I would be most grateful. Loving the car and nice to be a member of the Focus club B)
