      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.

The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Satnav retrofit help

    you need to use forscan to change the screen size to 5 MFD then it will let you change back to miles if you dont then your stuck with KM.
  2. Sync app link?

    the sync module is behind the climate control panel on the focus (unlike the fiesta) and i used this video as a reference to access the module. it took me about 30 mins to remove and refit.
  3. Sync app link?

    thank you jw. i will get myself an extended license for forscan and have a crack at it.
  4. Sync app link?

    thanks jw. when i took it out of the car there was only the sync module the wiring loom and the carpet left everything else had gone so i didnt realise is was a mk3.5. i know you can change the settings with forscan but im unsure of what the correct configuration would be?.
  5. Sync app link?

    ive got sync 1.0 in my 63 reg focus. but when i was in the scrapyard searching for something else i got my hands on a sync 1.1 module part number e1bt for basically nothing. so i installed it and it worked fine with phone etc but when pressing the sync button instead of it coming up on the screen with the phone usb option etc it was giving other random options regarding am-fm and play next or previous track etc. never seen this before as i know many people have installed d1bt modules on fiestas without any problems so im guessing the e1bt module has a later version of sync?.
  6. Another sat nav question

    hi. i managed to get a wiring loom out of a scrapped titanium x which had the wires so i unpicked them from the connectors and added them to my car.
  7. Another sat nav question

    hi. yes it was plug and play i added the 2 wires so the voice on the sat nav works. the cd player i just left in my one that originally came with my car so basically i just added the screen the sony front panel and the 2 wires plus the wire which works the traffic.
  8. Another sat nav question

    ive got a 2013 ford focus and i had a screen starting with bm5t. i installed the factory fit sat nav with the screen starting f1bt with no problems at all.
  9. Stereo upgrade?

    leave your original stereo in and just change the fascia and the screen it will still work.
  10. that will be the dpf regenerating itself mine does it every couple of weeks on the motorway you should see the temp gauge go up and down for a few minutes until its finished. i use shell v power and its runs better feels quieter and give more mpg.
  11. Ford sat nav fitted

    just found this on ebay not sure if its any good for you but they are retrofitting reverse cameras to fords with original screens. ebay item number 122485736415
  12. hi isetta. yes he is doing the whole lot. so its a new cambelt plus idler and tensioner the water pump and also a new drive belt.
  13. hi dave. my cars just gone onto 47000 miles and theres only me that goes in it as i use it for work. i do about 200 miles a week mainly motorway but its the bearings thats gone on the water pump. it sounds exactly like this below so while the cambelt has to come off to fit the new pump its just easier to put a new one on now rather than have to change it again when i hit about 90k.
  14. ive got to get one fitted to my 2013 1.6 tdci focus next tuesday water pump has gone. so for the gates cambelt kit with water pump plus drive belt and he said it takes about 3 hours mines costing £280 which i thought was pretty good. as dave_k says above the kit alone from ford is nearly £220 when you include the vat.
  15. Hill Start Assist Retrofit - Fail

    when you have enabled hill start assist you then have to go to ABS and initialise it to get the hill start to work or you will get the lights on the dash. as ian said use focccus its easier activating it with that.
