      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. Ford Focus Mk2 Common Problems Thread

    Got a small problem with my focus it drives fine but occasionally has a slight drop in power which only lasts a split second, literally the time it takes to flick a light switch on, and then its off again (the car, not the light switch) It's only really noticeable when accelerating hard in 3rd. Any ideas what it could be?
  2. Ford Focus Lynx 1.8 TDCI 2009

    I've got a 2007 Focus (1.8TDCi Lynx engine) which had 106k on the clock when I bought it in March and I had timing belt done before collecting it as there was no record of this in the pile of receipts, just had the clutch and flywheel and starter motor done at 112k so in theory good for a while yet. I've done just over 6k and it's been absolutely spot on only letting me down once with a flat battery (kids and tablets) It's worth doing the timing belt as Damian said, it's peace of mind rather than unnecessary expense

    I think the only options are air filter and remapping which isn't a massive increase for non-turbo engines
  4. Hello

    Got a nice Focus Titanium 1.8TDCi and absolutely love it despite wanting to avoid diesels and anything above 80k (106k when I got it) it's been awesome, never missed a beat. Anyway I'm starting to upgrade stuff on it, despite all the usual stuff being top end from the factory, I've just put Philips whitevision bulbs in the front end and footwells, big difference both driving and looking from the outside *Not able to see any pics from photobucket either guys which is disappointing
