    From memory, if you read the haynes manual it states that "MIL or PCL will illuminate to indicate that resetting has been achieved, turn ignition to 0 then to position II, lights should now not illuminate."If you do a search on FFOC for "eolys" you will see a posting "Engine Systems Fault (Update DPF)" you will find the info for resetting here.

    It tells you how to do it in the haynes manual and there's info on FFOC site.

    Well thanks for your input guys but yesterday I decided to order 2 lts of the jlm pat fluid. Well it arrived this morning at 7.20am, wow how fast is that. It took me about half an hour to jack-up car, put fluid in, lower car and then re-set ecu counter. Cost £64 including re-fill kit, ecu was re-set with ignition and fuel flap method. B)

    I bought it from car super market Fords of Winsford. Im not having a problem with the car, no lights on dash etc, as yet but the last service was done at kwik-fit, spoke to previous owner and he said he only had a "normal" service so can only assume dpf fluid was not topped-up. ( who in their right mind would go to kwik-fit)Previous 2 services done at ford main stealership. Im only doing the dpf top-up for peace of mind.

    Hi, Iv'e just bought a 2007 1.6 tdci focus with 45k miles on the clock. It seems that the DPF fluid (eolys) was not topped-up at its 37,500mile service so I want to do it myself. I was thinking of using an after market product. Its JLM Pat fluid and it replaces eolys 176 which I think is what fords use.. Have any of you guys used this stuff and if so is it ok.
  8. 2003 1.6 steering rack/subframe

    Cheers for your reply guys. Ive done the rack replacement, marked it all up first, just need to get it tracked now. Ive put new suspension arms on the front and replaced all the arms, 3 each side, on the rear so I need to find a place that will do 4 wheel alignment. Its just difficult finding somewhere that can be trusted or are even competant of doing a proper job. Im in the Crewe area if anyone can recommend anywhere. thanks
  9. Hi, Im about to replace the steering rack on my focus which means the front subframe has to come off. What I need to know is, is it necessary to have the alignment pins to refit the subframe or will marking the position before removal suffice. How critical is it . cheers
