      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. Thanks, will check them out. Some people seem to think it's toe rather than camber but I'm open minded at the mo. Am trying to find sn outfit with a good quality 4 wheel geometry set up local to me to see what the issue is. Funnily enough, I've just changed both trailing arm to body bushes on the 'trouble'n'strife's' Mk3 Galaxy as one was picked up on the MOT. T'was a bit of a mission but just about achievable for the DIYer with the tight tooling. Will endeavour to write up my experiences for the benefit of Mk3 Galaxy / Mk4 Mondeo owners soon.
  2. Hi, As the title states, all I've done so far is jack the car up, wheels off and had a general visual inspection for damage. None found. Bushes 'look' and feel fine as in no excessive play. No history of a rear end shunt. Tyre px's I check regularly (32psi as per handbook) so no issues there. Car's completed 126k. The rear has flipped round on me once (as my old Pug 205 used to do🙂) on a slow speed, damp, 2nd/3rd gear bend. Have searched the forum history already. Found much discussion as to the possible causes but no definitive solution to the problem. Just wondering if any Mk1 owners had any advise before I take it for a 4 wheel geometry check somewhere? Many thanks in advance. Go well A
  3. Help required - Ford focus MK1 LPG

    I bought my Mk1 factory LPG last November (I thought it was marketed as the "Dual Fuel"?!) and negotiated a deal based on it running rough as nails. Read up that LPG cars liked smaller plug gaps also so pulled the plugs and checked the gaps. Standard 1.3mm "out of the box" measurements. Haynes said 0.9mm IIRC. I reduced them to 0.8mm. Runs sweet as on petrol, fine on gas on the motorway but terrible around town. In an effort to get to the bottom of the issue, I had the MOT tester test the emissions on gas to find the CO was really low and the HC / NOx (can't remember which one without the test sheet in front of me) was really high. Trouble is, I've no access to any maintenance data for it and living in Brighton, there seems to be a void of 'Gas' installers/servicing within a 50+ mile radius! 🙁 Mind you, getting 300+ miles to a £23 tank full, I'm still smiling! 😀
  4. MK1 Focus Steering Issue

    Hi, Funnily enough, just been researching this very same issue on my car. Mines completely standard with the 15", 5 spoke alloys so I doubt it's the bigger wheels. Hoping to do some trouble shooting over the next few days so will report back any findings. Go well
