  5. Krisdadude online about 1 hour ago · #1 Steering Wheel Wobble (NOT WHEELS) I have had my 2010 focus 1.8 zetec s 3 door for 4 months. Since Day one the steering wheel has a wobble from 60mph+ most notible from 60-70 and when accelerating. It seems identical to a wheel balance issue but is not. FYI: I have had the tyres balanced 20 times didnt help. New wheels and tyres both balanced numerous times, swapped front to backs vice versa. Still wobbling. New drive shafts left and right. Since the new drive shafts the vibration has increased slightly and i seem to have more vibration on acceleration up to 60mph then steering wheel wobble, it also can be intermittent, not sure whether it is caused by road up or downhill. Dont know but I could be feeling accelerator vibration also but could be just clutching at straws. All but one mechanic I speak to doesnt have any ideas, spoken to approx 12 different mechanics, the one who had ideas just named a big list to go through. Any ideas would be appreciated.
  6. Hi. Changing my instrument cluster for a one with higher miles on. Anybody know a way for me to knock 15k miles off to match my current. Local ford dealer said they can’t help me. Thanks guys i have faith faith one of you can help me.
  7. Hey all, I'm looking for details on how difficult it is to retrofit a Satnav to the 2015 Ford Focus. I currently have a Sync 2 8" head unit and find conflicting information online and also from my official ford retailer! Some say it requires an entirely new loom/wiring system where as others state that it may require activation only by a retailer and others specify a new head unit - does anyone have experience with this at all? Thanks in advance
  8. Hi my stop start has stopped working. On the test menu it shows my battery as 11.4v with everything off. Is that healthy enough for the system to work. Done a 20minute trip down the motorway last weekend and had everything off as approaching the city and it still didn't activate. Anyone else had same issue. Or know a fix. Thanks
  9. Does a car of this year and model show mobile phone signal strength on the left hand screen? Cant seem to find it and my Wife's horrible orange display does! Driving me mad!
  10. Focus Door Lock Stuck

    New to the focus (2005 mk2). i was driving all well and fine until it came to getting out of my focus, the drivers door wouldnt let me out. The top part of the interior lock seems to be stuck on lock and no matter what i do, (unlocking the car, pushing the lock in and out) it wont return to its original position. surprisingly it will still lock, but in order to get out of the drivers door, i have to wind down the window and open the lock by opening the car door from the outside. following this, i thought the door lock was simply stuck, so i continued to pull the handle harder and the bottom part of the lock (handle you pull to get out), seems to have come unstuck but still wont let me out. Wondering what i should do and if its possible to fix it cheaply?
  11. Hi guys just was flicking through eBay and seen a pair of oem pre facelift st225 bixenon projector headlights in mint nick up for auction and I ended up getting then for 70 quid which is a robery (pic below). My focus is a mk2 pre facelift is just a standard zetec model and doesn't have auto lights or any of that it's just standard. Just wondering will they plug and play and function the same as my old headlights or will I have to to a bit of playing around with wiring, thanks lads
  12. Hi Everyone, I'm new to the forum, going to be honest I never signed up because I went a bit mad modifying my last car and I thought not being on a forum would stop me from getting ideas about playing with this car! I have a 2012 Ford Focus Titanium, owned it for about 9 months now. Been a great car, done everything I've asked of it (and some things I've not asked like wheel bearings going at 32k!) So I recently tried to unpair a phone from the bluetooth and since then all of the above have stopped working. Seems like my car is having a hissy fit because I was fed up of listening to the other halves music whenever she got in the car! So I took it to my Ford dealership for some advice and they wanted to charge ridiculous amounts of money just to book it in and try and diagnose it. Could be talking £300+ which I was a bit annoyed about paying on the off chance they can fix it. I was wondering if anyone on here has any advice for me to try and get it working for myself. So far I have disconnected the battery for half an hour which in theory should have reset everything but still no luck. I believe the 2012 Focus with the sony headunit has a separate bluetooth module underneath the glovebox, but disconnecting that wouldn't do anything different to disconnecting the battery to rest everything in theory. Any advice would be great. I have 6 weeks off work and am determined to not be conned by Ford for something unnecessary if possible. Thanks Jake
  13. Any help in helping me tight reverse in a focus? (parallel parking) I often get my rear view up their windshield and think JEEZE I must be close but there is infact like a metre gap left! I really cant tell how close I am to the car behind so any tips would be fantastic! :) I used to have a Kia Picanto, and I could tell exactly how close I was to the car in behind because its a narrow thin car with is rear wheels right at the back, all i had to do was see how close the wheels were, and every other car was wider so I could see that as well as judging the rear wheels. But I cant see to do this on the focus, the rear end is quite prominent, not to mention its a very wide car! I've hit 2 cars in the past while tight reversing using this car, I've been avoiding tight parallel parking just because of this problem. If I could get any tips with this wide/big butt car, be fantastic as the road I live on is parallel parking only and struggle for parking space. Need reference points help in side mirrors and references looking back.
  14. SHOW US YOUR MK2

    Show us all your mk2! modified or standard! I'll start!
  15. Hi, My 2008 ('58 plate, MK2) Focus failed its MOT yesterday based on the bracket that holds the headlight bulb in place being broken, so that bulb isn't centred and rests on top of the lamp itself (picture below). KwikFit have said that the entire Headlight would need to be replaced costed approx. £160. Now, I can get the part itself from EuroCar Parts for £60 but Kwikfit won't fit it, so my question is; Would any one recommend replacing the headlight assembly themselves? It seems quite straight forward to remove the headlight from the fitting, it is just one screw and a couple of clips. The part I'm unsure on is removing it from the electrics. From what I can tell, you would just need to disconnect the wire, however, do you need to disconnect the battery first? What are the problems with this, and could I just do more damage? Any help would be very much appreciated Cheers
  16. I have the premium Sony sound system with the 10 speakers in my car. I keep losing the centre and sub woofer randomly when driving and it won't return until the car is powered down for a while. The head unit has been replaced, and this still hasn't fixed it. Curiously this started happen after a software to try and fix other issues with the previous head unit. Does anyone know if there is still a separate dsp/amp in the MK3.5 or is it now contained in the head unit its self? I am going to call Ford directly and see what they have to say about the matter as my dealer is running out of things to try and things to replace!
  17. Which Radio Do I Need To Buy?

    Hello Just purchased first ever Focus, it is the last of the mk2's before the 2.5 on an 08 plate, there is no stereo in it, I can see from various places on the internet it came with the CD6000 model, problem is on Ebay there is loads of different ones, which is the right one? The Sony MP3 version would be great, will it work? What is the best one I can fit in it for easy plug and play? Thanks in advance
  18. Hello all, I have researched for hours, days, and cannot find SPECIFICALLY as to whether a 2005 Ford Focus 1.6ltr Ti-VCT engine is better on "super unleaded" 97-99 RON vs 95 Ron. All I want answered is a simple Yes or No. Seen too many threads turned into a war between people who claim they work or its a con, but none talking about this engine specifically. So THANKS for those IN THE KNOW about Fords 1.6 Ti-VCT engines and their experiences. cheers.
  19. Focus mk2 rear wiper relay

    Hello everybody, Does someone know how to identify the rear wiper relay on a 2005 mk2 Focus? I've already successfully replaced the windshield wipers relay thanks to a tutorial I've found on the Internet. The PCB displays 3 other types of relays (see attached image), and I have no idea how to identify the one I'm interested in. All suggestions are welcome!
  20. Visual Modifications

    Hi All, I have a MK2 Ford Focus (Post-Facelift) 5 Door (Nothing special, no RS/ST trim, bog standard pretty much), but I'm struggling to find 2 items with decent reviews so im calling to you for help :) Basically, I need to find a pre-cut sun strip for the front (I have the curved window so universals don't work and I can only find exterior strips), And the other thing I need is Black ford badges with blue writing (for the front grill and boot badge), which I cant find anywhere. If anyone can point me in the right direction regarding these 2 it would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance, Dan.
