  1. New Battery Help

    best bet ask ford or replace with the same one
  2. MK3 focus - Yes or No

    I love fords I hate the fact that they inherit problems that should be ironed out mk1 issues on a mk3 isn't good enough hence why I walked away the mk3 is riddled with issues such as clutch slave cylinder is mega common fault as is dmf failures syndromes failures so bad the parts are back order that's a fact repeated drive shaft oil seal leaks friend had this issue as well even new seals and shafts didn't cure it fir ling usb connectors failing dash display faults inc blackouts' front suspension top mount bearings failing throttle malfunctions cracked coolant chambers door seals unsticking and electrical failure'ssudden power losses random fault lights to name but a few ...if you buy a ford new keep it 3 years the get rid fine if not you've no warranty no comeback and ford accept no responsibility for these flaws inherited from older car's which is the real issue so the choice is up to each person my mk3 test drive ended within 10mins with an engine malfunction then it spluttered to a halt on a low mileage fully serviced ford approved car ..reliable no. good cars to drive yes. a lot of kit for the money no not compared to others. warranty is crap good car if you maintain it yes if you want to keep throwing money at it to fix stupid faults and leaks .no better or worse than others rubbish fords way down there in reliability compared to others again I love fords but I walked like many others have till ford up their game and fix 10yr old flaws that just move from mk to mk and add a decent warranty they wont because they know the car isn't that well built mt stereo warranty is 2 years longer than fords car warranty my interior warranty is 5 years also inc leaks
  3. MK3 focus - Yes or No

    ide go elsewhere to be honest the 1.0 is riddled with issues as is the mk3 most carried on from the mk1 onwards I reluctantly moved away from ford and I'm glad I did known issues are door faults stop start faults clutch faults driveshaft leaks ecu issues display issues cluster faults
  4. Focus Mk2 1.8 Petrol Sport

    this may help
  5. Focus Mk2 1.8 Petrol Sport

    pretty much most torque doesn't kick in till high in the rev range
  6. Ecoboost Rough Idle. Where to start

    may need a software update from ford
  7. identify these clocks please

    are they even for a petrol a red line at 5000rpm says diesel to me I'm on my phone so perhaps youres is a diesel
  8. Engine Malfunction Light

    classic cluster fault symptoms you'll find no stored codes but you can get pending can bus error codes I don't know why now but the amount of mk2 focuses and mk1 that are having cluster faults are huge
  9. Instrument Cluster - replace?

    ic wont cause an error fault never seen one yet do that and yes you'll need a cluster coded to the car and keys to the cluster
  10. Replacement speakers for blown Ford ones.

    6.5 at the front rears are smaller 5.5 I think
  11. mk1 2ltr front wheel stud

    all modern fords use the same bolts
  12. Lh Rear Speaker Not Working

    agree with Redman use the original spacers a dremel or rotary tool will cut the speakers out new ones screw straight in no faffing around gives you access to put some door soundproofing in
  13. mk1 2ltr front wheel stud

    I'm sure they are 13mm anyway m12x1.5mm standard size sounds like the wrong stud was fitted to start with
  14. I dont think the garage I helping they seem to be pointing things out to replace that you didn't have an issue with to start with
  15. most obvious thing that no one seems to have checked or replaced Is the coolant expansion cap the and water pump
