  1. To many spares

    Hi guys iv a mk2 1.6zero power focus lx y clutch is just about had it but i cant seem to find a replacement. Ford tells me part x may fit. But im paying a mechanic to fit it. No time for might. Also iv a like hot water smell from front end after driving a while. No loss of coolant thou and i stil get hot air from blowers temp gauge sits just under 90. Thank you for any help reg is sc55odk for ref to clutch if any help. Kris
  2. Help very much required. For the passed 2 weeks almost every day I seem to be having trouble with my car. I have a 2017 ford fiesta zetec 1.0 ecoboost. Sometimes when I am stopped in traffic then go to pull off, as I find the biting point and release the emegency brake the car does not move, even when I apply the accelerator. When I then go to reapply the emergency brake it feels very stiff and won't depress. If I try to move off again it does the same thing. I have to aggressively push the brake a few times to get it to unstick. This has happened a few times specifically when I have released the clutch a bit too fast and twice after the car has been stalled (when it doesn't' ask for a manual restart) but other times it just happens when it's a normal pull off. It is important to say that once the emergency brake has been released in these situations the car does not roll forward or back. I've checked the brake servo to see if something was wrong with that, my brakes aren't spongy and usually just applying the lightest bit of pressure stops the car so I am not sure what is going on. My clutch seems to work fine too, my auto start stop works and I have to push the clutch down to start my engine, I also have no problem with changing gears (beyond the odd occasion where it pops out of reverse but this happened in my instructors car too which is the same model as mine) have tried to Google it but nothing that sounds like this pops up. I would prefer to know what it may be before taking it to the garage. If anyone could please help me with this I would very much appreciate it!

  4. O.K, so the Aluminium part of your foot pedal just fell off? Mine did a month and a half ago. I temporarily glued it back in place whilst ordering a genuine new one. Thinking this would be an easy swap I set about it. A few hours (and a lot of frustration later I managed the task). I couldn't find anything helpful online so I thought I'd write a quick guide of how I managed this. The pedal in question was the Clutch pedal, but I presume it'll be the same fro the Brake pedal too. Insure you have a lamp, a small mirror and a flat stubby screwdriver to assist you doing this correctly. Place the new pedal cover into a bowl of boiling water for around 10 minutes. Dry off the pedal cover and head to the car to begin fitting. (#1) Install the bottom of the pedal cover first (as it's the smaller area). (#2) Insert the upper left corner next (this is the awkward corner as you are inhibited by the pedal support arm) (#3) Then run your screwdriver up the side to ensure the rubber between #1 & #2 is correctly fitted. (#4) Fit the top right corner next. (#5) Run your screwdriver across the top to ensure the rubber between #2 & #4 is correctly fitted. (#6) Finally pull down on the right side tab to assist you using your screwdriver to ensure this rubber is correctly in place. This sounds fairly simple to do, but in practice it can be a bit of a dog to successfully get all of the rubbers on in place. You will need to apply pressure to the pedal cover against the pedal itself to get parts to stay on whilst moving on to the next step. Obviously if the pedal cover slips off then you should start again and drop it back into boiling water. I've attached a few images for assistance. I hope this guide helps at least one person out, please leave a comment below if so. Thanks in advance.
  5. good day to everyone i am the second main owner of a 2010 smax and i found out i will be changing the clutch for the 4th time 85000 miles does anyone know how i can prevent this happening again ? PS i am not a boy racer Peter
  6. Hello all, New to this forum so not sure if this is the correct place to be posting this question? Purchased a Mk6 Fiesta with 56k on the clock. Not bad for a 2007 model, or so I thought. Recently started to have difficulty selecting 1st gear, changing gears, and stiff to get out of reverse. Local mechanic said it sounded like clutch drag, so had them replace the clutch, pressure plate and slave cylinder / throw out bearing. When the old clutch was out of the car, they said it had worn unevenly. Problem selecting / changing gears now solved, woo! However, since having the car back, after a good drive with everything warmed up, a 'rattle' develops when in neutral and clutch pedal up, which stops when the clutch pedal is pressed. This is a new noise since having the clutch kit replaced. The internet typically suggests this would be a gearbox / input shaft bearing issue, but I am wondering the possibility of it being the TOB as the noise has only been apparent since the new clutch has been fitted, and I had never heard it with the old clutch? Only happens when hot and after some decent driving (e.g. to the shops and back would not really cause the noise to surface, but a run down the dual carriageway and back would). No noise / squealing when clutch is depressed, but wondering if the 'rattle' is from the TOB just touching the pressure plate when in neutral? Not really noticed any unusual noises when driving, just this rattle in neutral sometimes. Could it also be low gearbox oil if they have not topped the box off when replacing the driveshaft? I asked the garage if they would change the oil when changing the clutch but they said it was a sealed box so they could not change it? Surely some oil must have come out of the box when removing the driveshaft and i'm wondering if they haven't replaced it and this could be causing the noise? Any help would be greatly appreciated so I can go back to them with a better idea of whether it could be the TOB or something else such as trans fluid. Only had the clutch changed last week, with the rattle in neutral present from the day I got it back.

  8. Mystery noise

    Hey! My 1.0 Fiesta has started making a strange buzzing sound (sounds like an electrical buzz) whenever I'm driving, but the noise stops when I press my clutch down. Anyone have any ideas? dont want to point any fingers but I did install a bluefin a week ago and now I'm experiencing this.. just in case any one thinks it could be related! thanks!
  9. Has anyone else had problems with the clutch of the powershift gearbox ? I have a 2011 Ford Kuga 2.0 litre based in Cyprus with 136k km see below the problem I have The dealership is asking for 3800 euro to fix it https://photos.app.goo.gl/gjXpMya0nE7W6ypL2 thanks
  10. I Purchased my first CAT D car yesterday and am very happy with it. Just 48,000 on clock and engine seems to be great. I have a couple of *hopefully minor* things I would like to clear up. (trying to play music through bluetooth) 1. Bluetooth Audio - From what I have read, it seems to be a complicated subject and strange. My car does not have USB (from what I can see) therefore I can not perform a software updatee unless their is another way around this? But what I am confused about is the fact the menu system seems to have the Bluetooth configuration built in ? I have an option from MENU > AUDIO > BLUETOOTH . At this point I get No Audio Device and my only option is to turn off my BT. My phone is already connected through Bluetooth and works great on calls . but just not on my audio. Is their something I am missing? I have also ready up a possible 2nd USB maybe in globe compartment, Whether or not if it just not possible. Hopefully someone can help me out. I have also attached some photo's of the Menu. 2. If I press my Clutch when my engine is running their seems to be 2 different noises. If the clutch is out it seems to be ( a little louder) when I dip the clitch in the noise seems to go away. I'm sure I have had this on other car's too, but doesn't anyone know if this is an issue with the car? It drive's flawlessly in all 5 gears. Regards Craig
  11. Hi there. So i have not long had my 07 plate Mondeo 2.0TDCi Titanium X but have noticed that if ipress the clutch in slightly there is a whirring noise... once i have got to the bite point and passed that the noise stops. There is no noise either when i have my foot off the pedal only when i press it slightly. Any ideas? Also don't know if it is related but there is a slight judder in 2nd gear when i release the clutch. Cheers Mark
  12. Hi FOC Guys. About a month ago i bought the Superchips bluefin remap for my Fiesta 1.0 Ecoboost (100 bhp). And i was REALLY possitive to feel the gains that the car got from the remap. But, now my car is going to the mecanic.!! my Release bearing in the clutch is done for it. I have never driven the car out to maximum rpm, but still the clutch is broken.!! £360 in repairs after just 80.000km in the car. Any one else with a re-mapped Fiesta, who have experienced this??
  13. So i bought an 05 focus zetec 115ps. £800 few issues, was missfiring sorted that with a full service carried out by myself, whilst perfoming service i noticed a few tell tail signs, first off it appears to have a 1.8 airbox (based on haynes book of lies photo) although im not sure if the ti cvt have the 1.8 box, second the vacuum pipe from rocker cover to airbox is broke and not attached, clutch pedal vibrates under hard acceleration but no slip or noise/smell. What looks like the electric assisted thermostate housing is just loose sat infront of airbox. Fsh up to 2 years ago 144k cam belt done at 98k clutch 122k last owner dor 2 years had no service stamps etc so im assuming all things bad strm from them. after the service and a motorway blast the missing all but disapeared but the EML came on, quick check on a diagnostic showed a catalytic converter bank 2 fault, im led to believe this is from unburnt fuel going into cat during misfire nessing with the sensor, but im not in the know with fords hence why im here. any knowledge of these issues would be much appreciated. oh and 1st is an absolute nightmare to select stiff as you like. cheers rick.
  14. Mechanical issue (rattle)

    Hello, I'm new to driving (passed in December) and I'm not very mechanical savy. I bought a 56 fiesta on 31st December and it's been running fine since then until recently. The issues I'm having are as follows. I hear a springy noise when dropping the clutch There is a knocking/rattle noise when the clutch is down When in first gear at low revs the car vibrates moderately when raising the clutch When in reverse the car vibrates very badly and feels like the wheels are spinning/struggling A clear liquid seems to drop from the backbox (no odour) I've flushed the coolant, topped up the oil, checked all the liquid i can see and they're all fine. It's about to hit 70k miles Someone suggested clutch maybe on the way out but better to get fellow ford lovers opinions. Thanks for any reply.
  15. WHINING

    HI ALL, RECENTLY BOUGHT A 2002 KA COLLECTION WITH 56k MILES. WHEN ITS STARTED ITS SOUNDS LIKE A GRINDING NOISE? IT DOESN'T REALLY EASE OFF AS DRIVING TOO. THE CLUTCH BITES REALLY LOW, BUT EVEN IF IT WAS THE RELEASE BEARING, SURELY THE NOISE WOULD QUIETEN OFF WHEN CLUTCH PRESSED? I AM RIGHT IN UNDERSTANDING, THESE CARS SUFFER FROM GEARBOX FAULTS? ALSO DOES ANYONE LOCALLY TO ME FANCY CHANGING THE CLUTCH FOR ME? (WITH PAYMENT OBVIOUSLY)
  16. Clutch

  17. New Clutch Advice

    Hi guys, It looks as though I need to replace my clutch, as it slips badly in 4th and 5th especially. I have a 1.6 TDCI 2010 Mk2.5 Focus, with a Spider tuning box fitted. I'd prefer to get a stage 2 clutch, but wouldn't know where to begin! Has anybody upgraded their clutch to something similar? How will it change the feel of the clutch? If you are able to offer any advice or recommendations on what to go for, that would be much appreciated. Thanks.
  18. Hi, i was was just wondering why my clutch is high. The pedal is nearly fully released before the car bites. it has had a new clutch about 2-3 months ago, what's the reason why it's high and what can I do to if this thanks for any help given
  19. I can hear a weird noise from the engine when it's running on idle. The intensity of the noise varies and only stops when the clutch pedal is pressed. Is this normal? My model is a Focus Mk. 2.5 (2012) 1.6l with manual transmission.
  20. Hi, I'm looking to basically update a old Ford fiesta i purchased back in August. The clutch is really the main problem . Now it has done 69,000 miles and has been well looked after and obviously the clutch has been extremely worn over the years. The biting point is quite high but not to extreme, and I've never really dealt with the old Mk6 clutch before. All I want is to try and troubleshoot the problem here with you guys, this is an amazing website and i'll be really appreciative of some help.
  21. Fiesta 1.4 TDCI VIBRATION

    Hi all, I am new to this forum so hi to all and I am hoping I can find an answer to my problem. i have a 1.4 fiesta tdci 05 reg, it's done 164,000 miles without a problem till now. The clutch went about 3 weeks ago, so had a new one fitted and since then I have a vibration that starts in fifth gear engine underload going up hill at around 1800 rpm /50 mph with light throttle it feels like the engine is shaking loose? Had it back to the garage they have looked at many things and couldn't find anything wrong. So after much debate they decided to change the clutch again in case it was a fault on that they checked the flywheel which is perfect, rebuilt it and it's exactly the same. They say there is some end float in the crank shaft which may be causing it?? And have advised I could need a new engine?? The car drives faultlessly in all other gears and conditions and if you accelerate through it it goes? There's no nasty knocks or rattles from the engine it is sweet. Has anyone experienced this before?? Any help greatly appreciated as it's becoming annoying now and hate the thought of an engine change. Thanks in advance. Dave.
  22. Hi, I own a 2002 Zetec 2.0 with 57k on the clock, love this car and little by little I'm fixing some issues due to the lack of use. Anyway it drives perfect except for a strange thing: driving calm when I change gears the engine tends to rev up when I push the clutch, it is quite subtile (100, 200rpm perhaps) but it is really disturbing. Normally I release the accelerator, pusch the clutch and change gear. Well, it revs up and in the moment I release the clutch again after change the gear I have to take care because the front axle tends to knock (pound?) and I'm afraid to mess up something. I leave the car to two Ford garages and for them everything was right. For me it isn't, that's why I'm here... Guys, sorry if my explanation is not clear enough, jI'm not an english speaker... :(
  23. I had a bit of a discussion with another member on here about whether its a good idea or not,so I'm just back from the leading Transmission specialists in Scotland ( Charles Butler Forfar) & I asked Gav the foreman about this,and his answer........ DON'T DO IT! He said its a bad idea. He said its ok for transit vans,but not for cars. He said if your DMF needs replacing,then replace it with a proper replacement DMF. Mentioned the same thing as I did,about the vibrations etc,& they DO shake to bits eventually. When I got this conversion on FOUR cars,alongside a remap,eventually they knackered the gear-box.Not maybe,DEFINITELY EVERY TIME! And Im no boy racer at 47yr old,so its not a case of me raggin my cars,quite the opposite. I learned the really expensive way.Id say in all Ive spent about 2000 repairing damage done by SMF conversion.Its crazy,its the cheaper option,but I guarantee you it'll ruin your car in the end. If I can stop one person from doing this conversion,then I'd be happy knowing that someone else's car isnt gonna turn into a liability the way mines did(all four). So,to the guy who disagreed with me,mate do yourself a favour & ask around 1st.You might just start to see sense,& rip that solid chunk a crap outta there,& put a proper DMF in. Oh,and they a good DMF will definitely handle the torque from a remap,unless youre tanning your motor all the timem,in which case whatever. remember that all this company does is transmissions & clutch/dmf etc,7 days a week,52 weeks a year. He's been going for about 40 odd years,and he knows his stuff,so upto you guys from here. If you wanna listen to companies thatve only stopped messing their nappies,then so be it,but dont say I didnt try to give you advice 1st
  24. new clutch problem

    Hi There ... Newbie here and i am probally posting this in the wrong place but need some help / advice with my 1.3i mk5 fiesta ...basicly what happened was that my clutch pedal recently went to the floor and i purchased a clutch kit from flea bay ... fitted the clutch , all was going well untill i tried to hook up the hydraulic hose onto the back of the slave cylinder , the aluminium adapter / fitting from my old cylinder ( retained by 2 clips ) does not want to go into the back of the new slave cylinder ? , i also tried pushing the end of the hose minus the adapter into the recess it also seams to be to big ?? is there an adapter available to allow me to make the link ? say 12 mm at the hose end and 11mmm at the end that goes into the slave ? if so what are these fittings called and where do i get them ??? regards Jack ...
