  1. Anyone know what this is?

    Both sensors are used to control the dimming of the mirror. The sensor nearest the windscreen stops the mirror from dimming in the daylight. 1. The forward-facing sensor detects low ambient light levels and signals the mirror to begin looking for glare.2. The rearward-facing sensor then detects glare from the vehicles traveling behind you.3. The mirror dims in proportion to the glare detected compared to the ambient light level.

    I don't think that the £149 service includes breakdown cover any more. I think that they dropped the roadside assistance back in March when they increased the price from £125 to £149 and included the pollen filter or the air filter.

    According to the website a Motorcraft £149 service = Oil and filter change, 30 point eCHECK, Antifreeze check and top up, Brake fluid check and top up, Windscreen washer check and top up, Check and adjust tyre pressures, Battery check, Reset service light, Wash and Vac, Steering check, Visual alignment check, Brake check (wheels off), Check and advise on transmission oil level, Pollen or Air filter change The interior or air filter is included in Ford Motorcraft Service. Replacement of both filters is optional and will result in an additional cost. The check list seems to have progressed from ticks on a bit of paper to electronic clicks. If the parts/oil cost £40 and the vat is £25 it would leave about £85 for labour.
  4. Focus mk3 stop start not working

    Mine hadn't worked for about 6 months until I went on holiday to Cornwall. Whilst there it started working and worked several times every day for two weeks. Now it doesn't work again. The smart charging system tries to keep the battery charged to 80%. The stop/start needs the battery to be above a certain charge level or it won't work. My battery usually shows 11.4v on the diagnostic display with the engine not running. My theory is that the hills in Cornwall allowed the regenerative charging system to charge the battery to more than 80% and that caused the stop/start system to work for a while. Now I am back in Lincolnshire and all journeys are on flat ground the battery has dropped back to 80% charge and stop/start no longer works.
  5. Opinions on this car please?

    Last MOT 11/8/2017 had the following advisories: Front brake disc worn, pitted or scored both sides. Front brake pads wearing thin both sides. Offside rear tyre worn close to the legal limit Central (?) front tyre worn close to the legal limit. Might be worth asking them to fix those things as part of any deal to buy it.

  7. Ford Focus iphone Mount

    One of their holders fits on the drivers side A pillar. That would allow you to mount your phone above the dashboard but not as far away from you as a windscreen sucker. Perhaps that would suit you better.
  8. Ford Focus iphone Mount

    The Brodit Proclips are good but expensive. Details here: They are in two parts. One part fits the car, the other fits the phone and the two screw together. I have my iPhone mounted just under the air vent to the left of the radio and use it as a satnav successfully.
