  1. Hi, Looking to remove my rear bumper and struggling a little. Found loads of info for the Mk2 but none for the facelift! Has anyone removed it from the facelift model and if so please help! :)
  2. Hi all, I 100% recommend if fitting an EGR Blanking plate; that you fit a stainless steel one, Alluminum plates break through over time with terrible results. Stainless steel blanking plates are top job a fit and forget item. Here is a reliable supplier of stainless steel laser cut egr blanking plates. This guide is now available to download in pdf format making it eaier to print or share, See link to download: Tools Required: 16mm Socket 5/16 Socket 8mm Socket 13/32 Socket (only if engine cover fitted) T30 Torx screw driver T20 Torx screw driver Time to fit : 02:15 from start to finish, perhaps quicker if you were not stopping to take pictures or search for the required tools since you guys now have a list lol The next step is extremly difficult if you don't know how, But its very simple once you know how; and you will know how to After you watch this short video from dodge, all wiper arms remove the same way and this dodge wiper removal video video explains it best. . Clips removal using flat screwdriver to slide from panel. Once unclipped; Lift the panel free from place and store in a safe place until returning to the car. Next step is to remove the panel beneath also remove the brake fluid resivour from this panel and ensure to place it in an upright position in the engine bay until returning to the panel. Store all screws in a cup and place it somewhere safe until returning to the car. When screws are removed from the panel; Lift upwards on the front and gently pull backwards to release from the clips that grip it at the rear: when removed: Store in a safe place until replacing on the car Now all of these panels are removed, you can gain comfortable access to the rear of the engine, Your next question may be "where is the EGR Valve located?" Here are 3 images taken from the front engine bay and leading you to the rear right side of the 1.6TDCi / 1.6HDi engine where the EGR valve joins to the block. This round headed barcoded electonic valve is THE EGR!! This cylinder in the image below is the egr valve cooler, Helps to cool the exhaust gases that are being sent to the valve for re-entry to the combustion chamber. Now to fit the EGR blanking plate; You first need to loosten the nut on the EGR Cooler tank Followed by loosening the two extreemly long EGR Valve bolts. Once the nut on the "EGR Cooler" And The 2 bolts on the "EGR Valve" have been made loose you can gently pull the EGR Valve from the engine block, This is a case of trial pulling Followed by further loosening of the nut/bolts until you have enough space to slide in the plate. See in the image below this text: The gap beginning to appear when gently pulling on the EGR valve after loosening Their is a gasket seal on between the engine block and egr valve flange, I kept the gasket on the engine block side; when inserting the blanking plate, So the gasket now seals the engine block to the egr blanking plate, This is best for a good seal. Now to slide in the blanking plate from the right side of the engine In to the left. Very easy, Just hook on to the top bolt And Let the blanking plate swing down; it will hook in to the lower bolt itself. Just push firmly to the left to ensure it is centre in the valve, Also ensure the gasket seal is between the engine block and the blanking plate. Prior to tightening the 2 bolts on the EGR valve back up Followed by the nut on the egr cooler. Here is the blanking plate fitted: Now to replace the panels Ensure the seals are free from dirt Also check the top panel under the windscreen, It has a C shaped end that fits the bottom of the windscreen in to the panel for a tight seal. .. All back togeather You will notice boost comes a lot quicker and increased torque lower down in the rev range, Exhaust noise is a little louder (just a little) Engine idle is quieter Exhaust smoke doesn't exist Your induction system now takes in clean air only No carbon in your induction Less engine oil contamination All of the above are from my personal experience since fitting, Other things such as increased MPG have yet to be saw but I'll keep you all updated. Great surprise with the reduced lag in 1st and 2nd Gear though. Well worth every penny and more! By far the best modification on the car to date. Diesel Engines with an active or once active EGR Valve suffer heavily from carbon deposits contaminating the engine oil, These carbon deposits operate much like cholesterol in the human body gathering in the arteries of the heart; These carbon deposits mix with the oil and turn to sludge which slowly gathers in the turbo oil feed pipe, Eventually leading to oil starvation in the turbo causing instant turbo failure. I've used Wynn's engine flush before and once recommended it, however wynn's formula is a bit too abrasive which strips everything from the engine internals leading to risk of scribing and minute cavitations the product leaves nothing behind only your next fill of oil to protect internals. The best product on the market to flush out the carbon and other harmful deposits from your engine is from a company called Xado, They manufacture an organic based engine flush product which also has some revitalizant: Forms an anti-wear coating on friction parts immediately during oil system flushing Creates reserve of anti-wear protection properties, prevents possible defects on friction surfaces during further engine operation. Link: This bottle gets poured in to the existing engine oil when the engine has been brought up to operating temperature. You can then drive for a distance up to 20km/15miles prior to draining the oil. This makes Total Flush from Xado an ideal product for those of us whom don't carry out oil changes ourselves, Simply pour the bottle in to the engine prior to leaving your car in to the garage for a service gives great peace of mind and protection. I've used this product a few times now myself on my 1.6TDCi engine, I've noticed the engine idles quieter and drives smoother its definitely worth purchasing as part of the routine service on your vehicle.
  3. Hi guys, I'm looking at removing my grills on my 2013 focus to spray them, I know how to remove my lower ones but I'm just a bit stuck on removing the upper (the one with the badge on). Just wondering if anyone has ever done this before and could help?? Cheers
  4. right I picked up my red edition last week and have brought some heko wind deflectors! I do want to put them on the car but have yet to do so, mainly because when I come to get a new car I will remove them, so Im asking if anyone knows how hard they are to remove and will they damage the window seal when you do remove them? Don't want to put them on and then struggle to get them off when the time comes
  5. Hi, New to the fiesta hype. started with a few little mods, deflectors,spoiler,miltek exhaust etc etc. purchased a 's' badge for the front radiator badge grille. i can see its held on by 3 clips at the top which are easy to remove. but the bottom 2 I'm struggling with. can anyone help. they are attached to the bumper. Thanks sam.
  6. Footwell Lights?

    may be a stupid question, but how do i get the bulb out of the footwell lights on a mk7.5 fiesta titanium? Easy enough to twist them out of the holders but how do i actually get the bulb out? Want to change them, cheers for any help
  7. I rather stupidly tried to remove the radio using a coat hanger rather than waiting for the actual keys. Part of the coat hanger has now broken and is stuck inside one of the holes. What do I do?
  8. Hi, I would like to know what is required to remove the airbag from the steering wheel on the mk2 ka? I need to fit a new indicator stalk. Help would be much appreciated.
  9. Hi all, I trusted the wife to take my trusty Focus to have a tyre replaced due to a slow puncture. My usual (trusted) garage was too busy so she took it to a local independent "tyre place" they managed to strip the inside of the key so couldn't remove the nut. They swore blind they had the key on straight etc but my wife had her doubts. Anyway they wanted £60 to remove the locking nuts & replace them & the locking key with Ford supplied parts. I called them & asked how much to replace the locking nuts with standard nuts & was told it was still £60 as they had to get them from Ford. I told them to "F*ck off" as standard wheel nuts come in "standard" sizes. On a previous car I removed a locking nut using the methods shown on youtube e.g. slightly undersized socket, bash it on & away you go. This option does seem to be viable for my Focus as the locking nut appears to have a collar round it, I also can't get a standard socket over it due to there only being a tiny gap between the nut collar & the wheel itself. Has anyone successfully managed to remove one of these type successfully? If so how? (Do I need to chisel off the collar & I'll then have room/access to the nut itself) I though it best to ask for advice before taking a 4lb lump hammer & a cold chisel to it, lol) I've attached a couple of pictures to try & show it a little better. One is a fleabay pic of the same type of locking nut & the other is a pic of my issue with a lack of clearance/room between the collar & the wheel itself All sensible suggestions are welcome! :D
  10. 2015 Focus Titanium

    2015 edn of the Focus Titanium has an array of sensors pointing through the windscreen from behind the morror. I was windering if anyone knows how to get the cover off - I intend to mount a fwd looking camera and leave it in the on loop. I do not have the version which has the sign identification nor high beam detection. Many thanks. Simon.
  11. Upgraded Headlights

  12. Guide: De-Wiper the boot door Ford Focus Mk2 and Mk2.5 I've had a lot of thought's about doing this modification in the past then i kept putting it off and doing somthing else to the car instead, I have previously removed the rear wiper arm casing and sprayed it gloss black to better blend in with the tinted glass as saw on my build thread link: But now there's little else to be done on the focus and i got bored so here's the guide :) I've purchased a Gloss Black De-Wiper Kit from eBay Link: Gotta love the provided fitting instructions no mercy on the rear wiper if it ain't coming off cut it off I also recommend using some bathroom silicone sealant available to purchase locally at any DIY Store. Tools Required: T25 Torx 8MM Socket or Spanner 1/2" Socket or Spanner Flat head Screwdriver First Step, Lift open elbow cap from the rear wiper blade as saw in image below: Using a 1/2" socket or wrench; Remove the securing nut & washer followed by removing the wiper arm itself, The removal of the wiper arm can prove to be difficult; I first used a flat head screwdriver to free the spring and wiper arm away from the main elbow as saw in images below: "insert image" The method reduced the bulk, Allowing the short elbow section to be prised from the main motor bolt as saw in image below: Next Step, Open the boot door, Remove the parcel shelve, Then using a T25 Torx; remove the panel retaining screw from both pockets in the panel as saw in images below: With both screw's removed; Place one hand on the metal boot door, Place other hand in the pocket of the plastic handle and pull downwards, The panel will unclip as saw in image below, this separation process makes a lot of noise when the plastic is unclipping. Repeat the grip and pull process on the opposite side to remove the panel completely and store it in a safe place until ready to refit. Sit yourself down on the sill of the boot compartment facing outwards towards the rear of the focus, Bring the boot lid down on to your lap resulting in a comfortable position rather than working at it overhead. Unplug the wiring loom from the rear wiper motor, Using an 8mm Socket or Wrench; Remove the three aluminium bolts which retain the wiper motor, The motor will then slide out leaving a black plastic pipe and the rubber grommet behind. Standing up now, Facing in to the boot area; Fold down the boot door, Using a flat head screwdriver on the outside of the boot door; Gently lift the rubber ring upwards prying it out from the glass using fingers and screwdriver taking care not to scratch or break the glass. With the rubber grommet now removed, Refit the three 8mm aluminium bolts that were used to hold the wiper motor in place as they don't weigh very much and best place to store them preventing loss if one should wish to refit the wiper motor at a later date, At this point; Use some PVC electrical insulating tape to cover the wiper loom plug as its now disconnected, It is also recommended to take some time to thoroughly clean the glass area both inside & out followed by allowing time to dry as this will ensure a perfect seal on the blanking cap. As an additional precaution I've used some clear Bathroom silicone to seal around the inside ring of the blanking cap on the inside of the boot to prevent any risk of future leaks passing through, With the glass now clean and dry; Insert the gloss black cap in to the boot from outside. While !Removed! on the silicone coated retaining bolt from inside the boot door, The De-Wiper kit is now completely fitted, Offer up the plastic boot panel, When aligned correctly; slap the panel in to place using the palm of your hand while gripping the metal boot door in other hand, Refit the two T25 Torx retaining screws in to the bottom of the plastic panel !Removed! in until hand tight. Job Done, B) I hope this guide has helped you achieve desired results, Any questions feel free to email me: You may also like to view my full list of guides can be viewed on my profile page: Or If your using the forum App follow this link:
  13. You can find below the steps needed to replace the mirror indicator bulbs/ remove the housing on a mk7 Fiesta. The process is pretty simple, takes about 10 mins and only needs one person and a screwdriver. I was removing the cover to replace the bulbs with chrome ones but the same process applies for pretty much any work you want to do on the mirrors. The reason I have written this guide is that whilst the process is simple it does require you to apply a fair bit of pressure to plastic parts which is always a worry if you don't know exactly what you're doing. From my experience the job doesn't endanger your mirror glass as you pretty much leave that alone and you're most at risk of snapping one of the plastic clips on the housing. On the up side though they all seem surprisingly sturdy so as long as you're careful you will be fine. Step 1 Step 2 Step 3
  14. Hi, I'm a complete novice with cars and looking for some help. I've looked all over the internet for a guide on how to remove my old grey MK6 seats from my Fiesta LX 1.25 and found nothing. I'm slowly turning my LX into an ST replica and I recently bought some nice half leather blue ST seats. Can anyone provide some help with regards to removing my current seats and door cards and replacing them with the new ones? Thanks!
  15. In need of a form of guide or any information about how to remove a rear bumper on a mk6 ford fiesta flame. Recently bought the car and need to remove the rear bumper due to damage but don't really know on how to remove it. Any info would help and would be very grateful, cheers! :)
  16. Handbreak Help (H)Required

    Hi guys, Hope this is in the right place i have a 2014 fiesta (UK) and have somehow managed to lose a very important key in this rather poorly placed void that coincides with my pocket position :P does anyone know how i can get it out? or maybe take the surround off to get to it? thanks!
  17. Hi folks! After having the dpf 'removed' and the engine remapped a couple of years ago, the power train warning light has come on (red cog and !). It first came on last wednesday and the car went into limp mode. I've had it checked for error codes by a private mechanic with a SnapOn analyser which showed up no error codes. He then took the car to the local Ford dealership and got them to hook it up to their kit only for no error code to show up again. Presumably this is because of the remap. Incidently, only three months after having the dpf 'sorted' the turbo blew so I spent just over a grand having it replaced along with an uprated oil strainer and banjo bolts apparently to allow a better flow of oil to the new turbo. Anyone had the same thing happen after a dpf mod? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers Dan

  19. Hi everyone, I have just removed rear bumper from a 2006 hatchback to fit towbar. When refitting I cannot get the one side to fit properly on the wheel arch by doing up the nut - it seems too loose and won't pinch up. The nut and bolt are fine. Any ideas? Thanks Richard
  20. Hi guys. Just as the title suggests, i'm looking for an experienced and trusted dpf delete/remap place in the Manchester/Stockport area. Must be a professional outfit (rolling road, clean bays, cars treated with respect) not some backyard bodge it outfit. Need to know my p&j is going to a place where things are done properly! :) Any suggestions guys? With prices you paid at the time if possible. Mike.
  21. Hi, I have owned my Fiesta Zetec '03 for about 6 weeks and was wondering if anybody has ever removed the stereo. It's one of those triple dash stereos built in to the dashboard with all the heating controls and AC etc. The reason I ask is I want to fit an aftermarket system with DAB and an AUX port to plug my iPod in. I wouldn't attempt it myself as they are not as simple as the old fiestas. I would take it to Halfords and get them to do it but I cant imagine them taking apart half the dash for the price of fitting a new stereo. Does anybody know if they can definitely do this. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
  22. Help! my daughter has just bought a 2002 Ka with a broken sliding door style glove box. We have managed to get a spare one but it appears to come out from below the dashboard, however the 3 screws that secure the box at the back are screwed downwards from above behind the dashboard and there doesn't seem to be an easy way to remove them. Any ideas please?
  23. does anyone know how you get the bulbs out of the mk7 escort fog light switch i want to replace the bulbs but not sure how it comes apart

  25. QUICK QUESTION / REQUEST!!!!! TITANIUM OR ZETEC MODELS 2013 mk7.5's ONLY!! Has anyone taken off either of the front door covers and taken pictures of the wiring loom at the top where it all sits, up near the tweeter location!! OR Would someone be able to do this for me, i just need good close up's and slightly further away pictures of the loom up near where the tweeter would sit in the door card/cover. The loom comes into the door as normal and then comes through the black under panel near the front and towards the top, it doesn't run along to much and there should be a connector plug near where the connector is for the tweeter plug and where the wires also go for the side mirror, i will put a photo up of the area i am talking about in a bit. Any help would be very appreciated in solving a mystery!!
