  1. Probably the speedo sensor. I believe it was on TV programme "Watchdog". It is a common fault. One viewer said it can be temporarily fixed by spraying WD-40, but this is not a perminant fix though.
  2. I would have to say IMO judging by what you have said unfortunately, yes the valves have. Sorry to hear.
  3. When the car stopped, did the part where it shows how many miles your car has done look like this: -- -- -- -- -- -- Because judging what your saying, the same thing happened to me & it turned out to be the speedo sensor. I could be wrong, but I thought it would be better to tell then keep quiet.
  4. Agreed, Ebay is your best choice. Good luck!
  5. Although it says 100,000 miles, for peace of mind, I would do it no later then 80,000 miles. Better safe then sorry!
  6. Yes, they should fit straight on.
  7. Yes I'm sure it would fit.
  8. Don't do it. A mate of mine done it & he wishes he never because the ride is terrible, handling is worse & it makes the car look, and i quote him "Boy racerish!"
  9. A lot of motors there! Where do you find the space to keep all of them?!
  10. I know what he is saying, at the bottom of a steep hill is just a money making scam!
  11. I hate it when people put fogs on when they don't need it - It can blind people!
  12. Just thought I would put the answers to the problems I have encountered to the threads I have wrote because I found this website a lot better then ffoc & people pointed me in the right direction. This website gives out free advice which is better then asking a question (when your not a paid member) on ffoc and getting your posts removed. Not parting with your money makes some clubs get petty & unhelpful (when you might only need help on a small problem)! Thanks Ford Owners Club for your responses :D -------------------------------------------- The way this problem was resolved was by a Ford garage (strictly speaking it is “Rapid Fit” next door to the Ford garage) telling me that my Ford Focus radio needs to be replaced. Dagenham motors in Woodford Green (Essex) which I would recommend, put another Ford Focus radio in & it worked perfectly fine & got good signal. When they put my radio back in, the problem was still there. They thought it might be the amp in the radio had died, but they can’t be too sure. What he said he can be sure of, is that they way to overcome this problem is to get a new radio as my radio frequency has gone KAPUT! If anyone wants to sell me their Ford Focus CD radio, please see this thread: http://www.fordownersclub.com/forums/index...ic=2309&hl=

Thanks Ford Owners Club for your responses :D -------------------------------------------- The way this problem was resolved was by a Ford garage (strictly speaking it is “Rapid Fit” next door to the Ford garage) telling that my HT leads need replacing. HOWEVER! The problem could be temporarily resolved by and I quote “Spraying the 4 HT leads rubber housing with a bit of WD40” (no need to take the HT leads out). Dagenham motors in Woodford Green (Essex) which I would recommend, said the problem was that moisture was getting inside the HT leads & by spraying a bit of WD40 on the outside of each of the leads, it seals it up, causing less moisture to get in. They have done that on my car & it has resolved by problem (only noticed it once after it rained during the whole day. I have yet to change the HT leads, which should eradicate the problem.

Thanks Ford Owners Club for your responses :D -------------------------------------------- The way I resolved this problem was by actually buying the official Ford Focus wipers & spoilers (housing) from Ford. My mate who runs a car garage got me them cheap. The official Ford Focus wipers are the best I have used & I have trial’ed & error’ed a lot!
  15. Hello I have a problem with my Ford Focus 2002 standard CD/radio. When you first start the car & put on the radio, it works fine. But 5 minutes later it loses signal. I have tried putting other aerials on using 3 different Ford Focus aerials & it still remains the same. Does anyone know a way to fix this problem? Thanks in advance. (Ps. The CD player works fine.)
