  1. So, I just bought my third Ford in a row (second Focus). Had the choice of a 15 plate with 10 miles on the clock or a 64 plate, 1 user, 3,000 miles but every safety feature under the sun included. I went for the 15 plate but now wondering whether it would be possible to have some of the safety features included on the other car to be installed on mine, or whether that has to be done on manufacture. I have a Titanium with active city stop, rear parking sensors and cruise control. Road sign and lane recognition and blind spot alerts would all be nice. I am wondering whether it is relatively easy to add on the features that use the forward facing camera behind my rear view mirror (ie whether it is just a case of updating the software used for the acitve city stop). I assume adding blind spot recognition would be pretty pricy as it would need side sensors and new wing mirrors? Does anyone have any experience of having such features installed by their dealer after purchase and the approximate cost?
  2. Hi, I have a 2007 Transit Connect Torneo LHD, I had a problem with the n/s/r stop and tail lamp connections, they kept touching when the bulb was inserted and blowing the fuse, unfortunately when I tried to move the contacts on one occasion I had left the lights on, this caused something to blow, not the fuse that had blown previously, I now can't find any fuse that is blown and I have now side lights. Any ideas please. Cheers Steve

  6. I have never contributed to one of these forums before but have been trawling them for a solution to this problem and on every site people have said I need to reset my ECU or remove the battery. I have done both and neither worked. So I went back to basics and started checking the 'very' simple things. I noted that when I applied the brake pedal, both front and rear position lights came on... which lead me to believe that there was a short in the brake light system drawing down the intelligent lighting solution voltage etc etc. So I checked the bulbs and low and behold... I had fitted an incorrect brake light bulb on that side of the car and when I moved it to the other side it transferred the fault. When I removed the faulty light bulb (brake light on the NS) and reset the ignition, the fault cleared and I am back in business. Now just to replace the brake bulb with the correct type (double filament). Thought I would share this as the investigation has taken a bit of time and would have cost me quite a bit for a really simple solution. So in short, both position lights out, check the brake bulb on the same side first to ensure it is the correct type and not causing a short. Hope this helps!

  9. Ford Focus 2010 Side Lights Issue

    Hi, I've got a Focus Titanium 2.0 2010 model, and my side lights on one side are not working. Left side works fine but right doesn't light up. I've looked for a manual with the use diagram but cannot find the right one on the internet. They all talk about fuses starting at number 1. The fuse box on the passenger side starts at fuse 100. Through trial and error I've identified fuse 103 as the left hand side lights (as they went out when I took this out) and fuse 102 and 104 seem ok, tried them both in 103 and this worked. Does anyone know which fuse is for right side lights? Also if the fuse isn't the issue what could it be? Tried changing the bulbs by the way. Thanks Ian
  10. Hello,I have recently had a squeak from my front off side wheel. It has got progressively worse over time. It squeaks and whines heavily when you turn right and clunks when you turn left. There seems to be a bit of vibration in the track rod arm but the noise is a strange one. Any suggestions please?

  14. I know this has been asked before but how do you remove the car jack covers from the Zetec S side skirt. Back ones pop out ok but I swear down if I pull any harder on the front 2 I'm either going to crack the skirt or pull the hole thing off. I suspect they have never been removed since it left the factory... Any top tips ??
  15. I have arranged a group buy on fiesta mk7 side skirt extensions with Kev from triple r composites. He is willing to send them out at £90 delivered if I can get 15 people involved. They are normally £105 so £15 discount. So far I have 8 names. Anyone on here interested and want to put their name down?
  16. Leak :(

    Hey guys, So I noticed a couple of weeks back that the driver's foot-well carpet was wet. I pulled back the carpet to find a pool of water. The insulation stuck to the carpet was soaked and the white insulation under the pedals was also soaked. It took me a week to dry with leaving the doors open and using a hair dryer. I disinfected all the insulation to prevent further mould. However I now have more water and am not totally sure where it's coming from. I am quite sure it is coming from the outside of the car, as it seems to be wetter after it has rained, but can't be 100%. The water seems to be coming from under the white insulation that lies under the pedals, but I obviously can't see right under it as the insulation only pulls up so far. Any ideas? I am looking to take it for the windscreen to be looked at. I was told to take it to a windscreen and sunroof specialist as they will have more specific knowledge of where to look to find the leak. I don't want to take it to a garage and it be there for days costing me loads of money. I can't seem to find any windscreen or sunroof specialists around Leicester though. Any help would be most appreciated. The car is a 2006 Focus 1.8 TDCI MK2.
  17. Mystery Switch

    What does this rocker switch do it is on left hand side driver footwell approx knee height when sat in car
  18. Hello all I very recently emptied the piggy bank and bought my first Ford. A September 2012 Focus Zetec-S 2.0 Diesel. It's good. Apart from the awkward glove box design!... And... Now the colder weather has set in I've had the heater on and noticed that whilst the vents located on the centre console work extremely well, there seems to be nothing coming out of the vents on the right of the steering wheel and the left of the glove box. Whilst the vents on the centre console are opened and closed with the control next to each of them, the side vents don't seem to have any individual controls for them. Is that right? I've tried each of the settings on the control which switches between blowing on the screen/feet & screen/feet only/feet and face/face only. Selecting any of these doesn't make a difference. Am I missing something? My right hand is getting cold during the morning commute! Thanks in anticipation
  19. Hi, I have a ford fiesta Zetec 5 door, theres a rather large dent in my offside driverside wing panel, ive ordered a new one however was wondering how hard is it to fit it myself? technically able, have replaced the bumper before, however is the wing welded? anyway around it? or is it fairly cheap to take the new part to a garage/bodyshop and have them just swap it over? ballpark figure? thanks to everyone on this forumn, love reading through, never thought id be posting myself one day, but you lot are the experts! forgot to mention its a mk7 2009 model. part cost £40, would not be willing to spend £200 to replace it when a part is £40. thanks!
  20. I bought a Ford Street KA Lux Ed 2004 plate a month ago. Roof problem: On the first morning I had the displeasure of cracking my rear window by lifting it to drop the roof, after the initial crack I decided what the hell and pulled it all the way cracking it in to 3 pieces. After all that the lid to drop the roof faild to open. After pulling the material away in the boot I saw the solenoid that pushes a lever to release the clips, I saw that the lever has a hole in it. Is there a way to add a mechanical switch that bypasses the electrical rubbish to release the clips? Also it took a while but I was able to replace the window, I do not recomend that people do this them selves. it's in but it has a 45^ kink in it. Indicator problem: Every time I approach a round about indicating right the front indicator goes off for 5 - 10 seconds then works again. I can only speculate that I eather have a loose conection, water in the bulb housing or corroded contacts. I've had a look under the hood and see no way to get to the connector. Does anyone know or can advise how to do so?
  21. Hi There!

    Hi all, I am currently driving in a 1.3 Fiesta Finesse which I have had for just over a year and I'm just looking for some advice on things to do to my fiesta to make look a bit cooler and general up keeping of my wee ford. Thanks for reading!
  22. I went to change my puny front parking lights for LED bulbs. I pulled off the headlamp's rubber cover and there was the lamp holder. I can wiggle this holder around but can I get it out to change the parking light bulb? No way. I don't want to break anything, so is this holder bayonetted into the reflector assembly? How on earth do I get it out - hopefully I don't have to remove the entire headlamp assembly as the instruction book says I must.
  23. Hi! A couple of days ago I discovered that air-conditon only works on driver side. When controls set on low, passenger side only blows outside temperature - not air con. Tried everything else - warm, cold, up, down etc - everything works fine. I have these ventilation controls: Anybode else who experienced this problem? Could it be a servo/motor/damper problem? Thanks for any help :)
  24. What Is The Official Name?

    Hello everyone! I was travelling down the A1 yesterday when I came across (and ran over! - not my fault) a ratchet and strap that some tool had left/dropped. To go along with the flat tyre which was expected, I also found when I stopped that the wee panel on the back of the side skirt had come off! I think it's the removable bit to get the jack under the car. Just wondered if anyone knows the official name for the wee panel and also where is the best place to get a replacement? Cheers
  25. Hey guys, I'm looking to remove the horrible black plastic strips off the side of my 2004 fez. Not just cos it will hopefully look better, but because it's a 5dr, the strip from the rear doors catches the rim of the front door when opening, causing a horrible scraping sound and causing the plastic the bend and come off the body where it catches the front door (hope that makes sense) Anyone else get this problem? I've looked at how to remove these bumper strps on various other forums, spirits, fishing wire, hair dryer etc. but I'm not sure what il find underneath.....holes or just gluey crap? And will there be contours underneath or will i be left with nice smooth bodywork underneath?Can anyone enlighten me? It's a 2004 fez flame, metallic Aquarius blue (if this helps?!) Thanks in advance! 😄
