      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      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. Aircon fan blows harder in reverse...

    Wheb your drivibg forwardsx you are moving towards the wind When driving backwards it has to compensate because you moving away from the wind
  2. Increasing mpg

    drive slower, slipstream trucks, leave earlier to avoid traffic, avoid braking at all costs, carpool, reduce unnecessary weight in car (spare wheel) apply tape to all body panel shut lines turn off climate control turn off radio tape up 75% of the radiator grill use lower viscosity oil in engine only ever have the fuel tank at 25% max over inflate your tires get larger diameter wheels get thinner width wheels use part worn tires remove all noise insulation from interior panels disconnect power steering pump remove wing mirrors and replace with cameras lower the roof by 3 inches cover rear wheel arches with sheet aluminium mount a rear spoiler upside down to create upforce turn off engine when stopped turn off engine when idling and slowing down to a stop crank starter motor when pulling away from stationary for a kers boost replace all glass with plastic when filling up pick up the premium filler nozzle and tip out the few millilters of fuel into your tank, put it back and fill up with regular fill up at night or mornings replace all exterior lights with LED replace all body panels with composite materials replace steel exhaust with titanium
  3. DPF Active Regeneration

    Is rpm considerably faster, Because i have no idea what the fan is going over the radio,
  4. DPF Active Regeneration

    How do you know if the car is performing a regeneration?
  5. Vent temperature mismatch

    I found online that you can put the climate control into diagnostics mode And it gave me the code 9082 Which is right side temperature flap But I can't find how to get to that flap
  6. Hi On my mk3 2012 focus I got my AC regased today because the vents were not blowing cold. After the regas the passenger side vent is blowing very cold and the driver side is blowing air warmer than the outside air temperature. Ive tried changing temperature, auto mode, turning climate off and on. Has anybody had similar issues, or know what is wrong
  7. I think there are 2 different sizes for the spare wheel space. I have a mk3 estate and with a space saver there is only 15mk3 between the wheel and carpet which ford has bridged the gap with polystyrene I believe etis says if you have full or space saver wheels
  8. Interior Mats

    Try looking on eBay for people breaking their fords
  9. Shouldn't be too difficult to measure if it will fit. Measure the diameter of the space, and depth and does it have a mounting bolt to hold the wheel secure. Some MOT places might fail the car because of a unsecured spare wheel
  10. Rear oval badges

    Sweet. My car needs a new badge
  11. Focccus guide required

    In that case I won't try it. I really only wanted it for the st logo on the instrument cluster. Do you know for the headlight option, do you choose HID or alternative HID For use with the ebay style hid kits
  12. Focccus guide required

    cable arrived today, here is my experience of using it so far. the cable arrived bundled with FORScan, this program seems pretty good for displaying DCT codes and oscilloscope plots of data, I downloaded FOCCCUS 0.8.5, installed it on a windows 10 laptop. plugged in the cable installed the driver and ran to the car. start FOCCCUS and click open click read BCM, this will make the instrument cluster do weird things throw error lights. click save to file, just in case. scroll down to #32 automatic locking by speed and change it to automatic locking click write to BCM, again the dashboard will do weird things close FOCCCUS turn ignition off and on again start FORScan click connect in the bottom left FORScan will read the various modules click the yellow triangle with DCT written on it click read DCT, for me a few codes came up click reset DCT click read DCT, to make sure codes gone disconnect in FORScan, close and unplug cycle ignition again start car and test changes have been made and no lights are coming up when I did this the first time I didn't cycle the ignition and the cruise control DCT kept coming up and cruise control would work. so I loaded the saved file back into the car. and cleared the odes in FORScan and started a module test labeled PCM.... after doing this the cruise control error disappeared and I followed the steps above. so now my car automatically locks itself once the car is moving. I am going to drive the car about a bit over next few days and as soon as I am brave enough (after the cruise control scare) I will try the #236 and put it into ST mode, this should display a ST logo when the ignition is turned on and allow more control over the ESC. I'm no expert at this, so try this at your own risk
  13. Ghosts in my headlights

    What you could try is pour I bit of isopropyl alcohol in there and swirl it over the white stuff. And wash it to the corners. This is assuming that its not burnt and not removable.

    I'm going to be blunt and say it, have you connected your phone to the car, can you play music from the phone through the speakers are the permissions set correctly on the phone to allow the car to control the phone via bluetooth
