  1. Evenin`all Firstly, I`m thinking of buying an 09 plate 2ltr TDCI Titanium x 82k FSH etc, to replace my Focus 1.8 TDCI, i`ve checked the MOT history online and there are 2 advisories, both for near/offside suspension arm rubber bushes deteriorated but no excessive movement, now is this a big/expensive job and could it be a common fault as my focus seems to have it as well (last MOT was also noted) Thanks for looking. Rob
  2. Guide To Fixing Common Focus Bonnet Lock Problem

    Good guide :-) My bonnet wouldn`t open, no clicks etc when turning key so I followed the guide and still no joy :-( So my mate came round and he exerted pressure( a lot of pressure lol) on bonnet directly over the lock and hey presto it opened, it turns out the catch that holds bonnet in place which should release when turning key to the left was sticking, half a can of silicone spray later and all is good. Still a very good guide, just thought this may help others in same predicament as I was :-)

    They don`t seem to do much if I`m honest as for footwell, never noticed them come on at night etc, tempted to go out now and check lol
  4. 2008 1.8 TDCI Titanium

    So, had a look on the ETIS and according to that, I should have footwell lights, should they be on when the vehicle lights are on? I need to get myself a manual methinks

  6. 2008 1.8 TDCI Titanium

    Hi all, I drive 2008 1.8 TDCI (just bought it for my long commute) I don`t have an owners manual or a spec sheet, I have noticed 2 red lights on the courtesy light cluster which are apparently part of the ambient lighting option? I have no other lights (footwell, door pockets etc) so does this mean they are not working? Or are turned off? Surely the ones on the light cluster would also be off if ambient lighting was turned off? Hope you can all help. Rob

  8. 08 plate 1.8 Derv

    Hi Guys n Gals, new to the forum, just bought an 08 plate 1.8 TDCI on a whim really, I needed a diesel as I have a round trip commute to work of 50 miles (mostly motorway) and i saw this one and really liked the look of it, I have mostly owned BMW petrol cars, but since getting the Focus I have been impressed, nippy, fuel efficient and comfortable :-) Any way, now the questions lol, what MK is it? Should I be looking at doing cambelts @100k? also I need a fuel filler cap as the previous owner had a "universal" one on and every time I open the flap, the !Removed! thing falls out! So what type am I looking for? It`s not got screw thread so I`m assuming its 3 pin? Sorry for the long list ;-) Rob (Northampton)
