  1. DTRL and front parking sensors

    Hi guys   Picking up my 12-plate Titanium Focus tomorrow, just wondering if any of you have any suggestions regarding fitting front parking sensors (colour-coded) and Daytime Running Lights (the ones in the headlights, not the grill). I'm not doing it myself!! I'm looking for someone in South Wales to do it for me professionally, somewhere near the Aberdare area but anywhere between Cardiff and Swansea would be fine. If you know of someone I could get a quote from, or have any ideas, itd be very much appreciated!   Thanks!! Jody
  2. Has anyone successfully put a facelift (mk7.5 ) front onto a prefacelift fiesta (mk7)? My question is what parts would I need and how to go about the DRL'S. Also were there any issues or anything else that I should know?  I know it's an expensive job as so far the only advice I have managed to find is that financially it's not worth it. I'm still going ahead with this so any advice would be much appreciated.  
  3. Evening Everybody. I hate only joining a forum to ask a question but I am looking for some advice with my 2007 (57) Focus. Wife went out in the car yesterday morning and the front wipers are no longer working - I immediately assumed that it was either the fuse or the linkage (my old Punto back in the day constantly had wiper issues). So far I have checked the fuse (Fuse 129 iirc) and it appears to be fine, I have checked and I am getting just under 12v output from the wiring loom (11.9v) and checked for any visible signs of damage/water ingress on the loom but couldnt see anything. I have tried two replacement motors from a local breakers but neither worked - the exact same as before. When I attempt to run the wipers I can hear the fuse box making the "ticking noise" that I would expect. Other functions from this stalk appear to be working without issues (rear wipers and front water jets) and all other electricals are working from what I can tell. I have had a look through the forums and it appears that people have had this issue with various different sources of the problem and hoping somebody may be able to assist with troubleshooting further. We have been discussing upgrading to Mondeo in the next month or so and really want to avoid spening cash on the car. Thanks Mark
  4. Hi Just wondered if anyone on here has had the same problem. I have a 1999 focus estate, only problem being is the heated rear window is only half working/clearing. Now I only use the car really for fishing and taking the dog out, but as you can imagine, only being able to see half out the rear window can be a bit of a pain. Has anyone had the same problem?....and if so, how did you fix it? Many thanks. Rich
  5.

Does all the numbers on the screen, apim or radio have to match what's in the car they all start with BM5T please help me somebody
  6. 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?
  7. Hello all, great forum here that I've been reading for a while. We've recently purchased a 2012 Fiesta Edge which we really love, but I am in the process of fitting some parking sensors front and rear into the factory positions. I have no issues with the fitting of the sensors, or with vehicle electrics etc. as I've done this many times - but I want that factory look in our 'new' car. I've ordered the 'Front Parking Switch' and bezel from Ford and it is exactly what I need. I've even managed to work out which pins provide a momentary action to engage the parking sensors but for the life of me am unable to get the backlight or 'on' light to work on the bench out of the car. I'm led to believe the multiplug for this bezel (which can also house the ESP switch and Airbag Off light) is present in all Fiestas. I'm hoping when I take the dash apart tomorrow I will find this plug and plug it in - if anything to get the backlight working. But does anyone have any experience with getting the 'on' LED to work, I'm guessing this would normally activate a Ford Module for the factory sensors, but I still cannot figure out on the bench how it illuminates the LED, even following the PCB tracks under a magnifying glass. If anyone has done this before (I guess not as I did try searching) and can help in any way that would be great! :)
  8. Repairing Front Bumper

    I have damaged the the lower part of front bumper by hitting a raised kerb. The visible damage is not much but the underside looks a mess. Are there any pictures available showing the various parts of the complete bumper assembly?
  9. Cracked Windscreen

    Hi folks, Yesterday I used the heated screen button on my mk3 focus to demist it. The outside temp was around 5C so not exactly freezing, after a few minutes a crack appeared in the lower left corner and within half an hour had grown to about 8 inches long. I have arranged for Autoglass to replace the screen but it's rather annoying as I only bought the car on Nov.5th. Just wondering if anyone else has had the same thing happen, though it may have been a flaw in the screen. Colin.
  10. Hi All I have a shiny new Gord Galaxy Titanium Edition 2014. I have noticed that the front and rear headlamps always stay on when the ignition is on. It is supposed to have auto sensing headlights when is where the knob is set to. Even if I move the knob to manual "0" position, the lights still stay on. ( The dash lights go off in the position). I took it back to the dealer and was told those are the running lights but that sounds like nonsense to me. Anybody know if he's right, will I always have to drive around with my lights on? (and let me clear, they are not the small types of running lights, it is the main headlamps were talking about). There are loads of Galaxys on the road but I have not seen any with headlamps on during the day on any of them. Hope someone can shed some light (sorry, couldn't resist) Imran
  11. Loose Heated Washer Jet Mk2

    Hi, I recently removed the washer jets from my mk2 Focus so that I could apply silicone grease as I heard that leaks from there were a common problem and I've already had an issue with this! However, when I tried to connect the jets back, the left one (when you look at car at from the front) felt loose in the bonnet hole and I could move it about. The right one had no problem and clicked in place when I pushed it back into the bonnet. The loose jet wouldn't click. The water hose looks as though it's connected properly to the jets and water shoots out of them fine. I have heated jets and it looks as though both the water hose and wire from the jets are clipped properly in the hooks on the bonnet. Does anyone have any tips on how to fix this?! I'm a fairly new driver and I do not know huge amounts about cars yet...! Thank you!
  12. Removing A Mk2 Front Wing

    Hi all, I've recently stripped back the sills on my car, treated the metal & resprayed (so far good) however on doing this it became obvious that the bottom section of the front RHS wing is 80% rust i.e. the part which the mud flap bolts through & is beyond being saved. I know replacement (pre-sprayed) wings can be purchased which my cause a minor colour mis-match due to UV fade etc, my question is does anyone have any idea how to remove the front wing? The Haines manual doesn't detail this process, I'm confident working on the car & am able to remove the arch liner. The only Youtube vids I could find for this are MK1's which may not have bolts etc in the same place etc.
  13. Hello I am trying to fit a clip on screen to my 2007 S-Max's rear view mirror. (Reversing camera) I have just bought one but unfortunately the sliding clips on the rear do not open wide enough for to accommodate the width of the mirror. It opens to 3" but needs to be 3.5". Any sugestions would be appreciated. I'm new to Ford ownership and the Ford owners club which I find most useful.
  14. Heres the 10" HD flip down DVD player, its an Xtrons CR108HD : Link to supplier: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/331346924847?_trksid=p2059210.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT Most Installation videos on YouTube will show cutting a large hole in the roof lining like this: This in my opinion weakens the structure of the roof lining, The unit Ive purchased has a banking plate to fit inside the roof lining, I wont cut out the roof lining to fit it in there, Instead ill take an additional 20 minutes of my time to remove the roof lining which I will show you how to do aswell, Line up the four M6 holes and drill them out in the centre of the roof lining to grip the screen unit to the plate o the opposite side of the roof lining no need to cut a huge hole. Just a single 19mm hole then to route the cables through. The Xtrons CR108HD comes with an 19mm oval badge embedded in the centre of the screen backing, Its nice but when fitting it in to a ford you know its gotta be changed for a custom print blue oval :) Instantly looks like a factory fitted flip down monitor Limited Edition. An additional nice touch from Xtrons is this unit has a built in blue ambient light which illuminates on 3 different levels of light, The blue ambient can also be kept switched on/off when monitor is active or on standby It also features a beautiful 6000kelvin white courtesy light which can work on demand aswell as in time with your existing courtesy lights. Moving on now shopping list for this Guide is as follows: 3 Metre RCA Extension cable http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/351351393773 15 Amp Cable http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/180513876557 10 Amp Cable http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/170680456683 Mini Blade PiggyBack Fuse Adaptor: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/400757943104 12V Rocker Switch: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/180734927009 PVC insulating tape: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/180483578968 M6 Penny Washers: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/180971712910 Crimp ring terminals Male crimp spade terminals: Insulated female crimp spade terminals: M6 x 20 counter sunk bolts: M6 nuts: The main power source wiring in this guide is slightly different to all the others i created as it piggybacks off previous modifications, In all other guides I've spliced in to factory looms However i will explain how to install it in to a focus with no previous modifications done to it, Same principles just requires a bit more cable to reach the battery in the engine bay rather than a capacitor inside the boot compartment.
  15. I've just finished rebuilding the front end - bumper, wings, various bits under the bonnet - on my Mk2 Focus. (It's taken two and a half years... ) I've got these things left over. I'm not too worried, but I'd prefer to know what they are :) It's possible that certain new parts I've bought already had them fitted without me noticing (e.g. a new bumper), in which case they're duplicates. Any ideas?
  16. Hi, Can anyone help? The driver's door of my 2001 Ford Focus is rather rusty at the bottom so I'm thinking of buying a replacement door and fitting it myself - it looks reasonably easy to do. However, what about the locks in the door? Do I need to somehow switch the locks from the old door into the replacement door? Or does the new door miraculously work with my old keys because the electrics tell it to? Thanks for any help. Ian
  17. Changing Front Grilles

    I'm trying to change the front upper and lower grill on my fiesta Zetec S 2014 ecoboost 1lt but not too sure exactly how to get the old ones off? Anyone have any idea? Thanks
  18. Hi all, I have a mk2 focus sport 1.8 tdci and I am at a loss and would like some advice. I have had a wobble / vibration on the front passenger side for over 6 months now and is very noticeable at low speeds and the steering wheel also wobbles. I have read a few posts and took on some of the suggestions but I have not had any luck in solving my problem. I have replaced the bearing including hub, it passed its not in January with no problems. I then replaced the drivers shaft, still no luck. I noticed that the tire was worn on the outside so today I took her to get a new tyre. I asked for the wheel to be put on the rear to see if it would help. I had all the wheels balenced and the alignment done and I am still facing the same problem. Does anyone have anymore ideas? thanks
  19. Hi, since owning the Focus which has an electrically heated windscreen I have found this one of the best innovations on it, especially this time of year. I'm always amazed that even much higher spec and expensive cars from other brands don't have this and I had understood that Ford owns the patent and wouldn't share it with others. Funny that all cars have rear heated windows but not front ones, but there you go. Then last night I saw an advert on TV for Vauxhall claiming that all their new cars now have this exact feature - how did that suddenly happen? And on Vauxhall of all makes, have they bought a license from Ford or developed it themselves without infringing on Ford's IP? I guess we will see this on more than just Ford and Vauxhall in the near future.
  20. Hi I have just purchased a 2008 focus 1.6 Zetec, the buttons for the heated windscreen and rear screen are very worn they are the silver ones, can anyone tell me the best place to source new ones, also how do you change them? Many Thanks
  21. front Led

    From the album My '08 S-Max Titanium

  22. Hi everyone So I've got an early mk6 Fiesta (non face-lift) Ever since the cold weather has set in I've noticed that my heated front windscreen doesn't work at all... I press the button to turn it on and nothing happens, I touch the windscreen and there's no sign of warmth at all. I'm a new driver and this is my first car, just wondered if anyone on here could give me a few helpers on to finding out whats gone wrong if its maybe a fuse or completely dead windscreen. Any help would be great!! thank you James.

  24. Hello people of the Ford Forum, I have a W reg 1.8 petrol Ford Focus Zetec. I've had it since September and I bought it in a car auction. The car is sound, it passed its MOT earlier this month albeit with a new brake cylinder on the o/s/r brake, but I cannot crumble as the car was cheap. My problem is that my alternator packed up the other day, it didn't give me any warning. The radio turned off, then the dash board lights started going. Not at any point did the battery light or any light other than the air bag warning light come on to give me notice. After calling out the AA I was told it was the alternator. So after buying a battery charger and charging the battery completely full I drove it with no heater, lights and radio to my local motor mechanic 20 miles from where I live. They have replaced the alternator but now the battery light stays on and the front windscreen heater does not work. The garage say they will sort it, but as I needed the car back I have to take it back when its convenient. I just wanted to know everybody's thoughts? Is it the alternator, a loose wire, what could it be? I'd appreciate any feed back so I can seem smart when I go back to the garage and tell them to investigate further.
  25. Focus Seats Question

    Hi all, I've got a focus mk2 facelift titanium and was looking to fit heated seats or st heated seats, my car currently has normal seats that have a manual riser. Can anyone let me know if the wiring etc is already in place? If so can you easily fit the switches?
