  1. Hi Guys, I am currently looking for a new car, particularly the Focus TDCi Zetec S models and I'd like some input, please. Does anyone have the service booklet for the below car? What is considered high mileage for a diesel and what should I be looking for as the car has 78k miles, and would this put you off? Can I get some opinions on the below, please? I think the price is too high, thoughts? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2010-Ford-Focus-2-0-TDCi-Zetec-S-5dr-/322641190207 All thoughts welcome. Thanks, Tom
  2. Finally a Ford!

    Hi there It's taken me 29 years, but I have finally got myself a Ford. After growing tired of continually having my Alfa towed by the AA, I have gone and bought myself a 2008 Focus - TDCi 1.6 Zetec So far, so good It needs a few cosmetic touch ups/replacements, but I am stupidly excited to now be part of the 'family' Speak soon (though hopefully not because of problems) Also, the reg ends in FOC!! What are the chances Chris
  3. New to the forum. I did have a MK6 Fiesta before this which was lightly modified with smoothed rear wipers, debadged, wrapped grill, halo lights, bonnet strip, aftermarket radio, vibe speakers upgrade. Lets see what happens with this one...!
  4. Hey guys, So I have a Mk6 Fiesta Zetec 1.4 5 door. I love the car, it's quite nippy considering the lowish power output and it runs well, however it's done 130k miles and I can feel it's a little on it way out. I sorted a leaky head gasket by flushing all coolant and then applying some radweld! It seems to be sealed for now, also I feel the gear box is a bit dodgy on occasion as it sometimes struggles to go into 4th. Anyway, having a 5 door fez is very useful as I hate having to get out to let people in the car and I've always considered some form of sleeper, since the engine may be on its way out is and I'd just replace it. Is there any engines that would be a superior upgrade and would be fairly straightforward? I literally have no upgrades at the moment and if you have any for the 1.4 that are good to get, that would be helpful too for now rather than a whole engine swap. But overall, I was thinking a 5 door fiesta st150 would be cool! So to sum up, TL:DR, any mod ideas for the 1.4? Willing to spend £1000 max! Alternatively, a suitable engine swap that would be an upgrade with some mod-ability. Look forward to your replies! Cheers guys, Josh
  5. I'm looking to do small modifications to the exterior and interior of my new car 👌 not looking for any engine modifications ... Yet :b just focusing on more of the looks at the moment to make it stand out a little , anybody got any recommendations on what I could get for the new car? :)
  6. Hi All, My 2005 zetec fiesta recently had an MOT, failed on broken number plate (not a problem). As part of the test they shake the car like mad, it seemed pretty violent which concerned me, prior to the MOT I had no problems with the car at all. As soon as I pull out of the centre, turning left I can feel a vibration almost rubbing. This is most apparent as slow speeds and doesnt appear turning right. 1.Tyres are fine, full of air. 2. I got them to take a look at the car on the ramp- spring/suspension are fine from what I can see no obvious damage or reason for the rubbing/vibration. 3. From my research could it be: a bearing issue? a steering pump faulting? 4. There was no issue before the MOT but the issue started immediately after, what could this be? Appreciate your help guys, anyone else experience this or an idea of what it could be?
  7. I just got a 2016 Fiesta Zetec S, I've currently got blue lights on radio, steering wheel, speed-o-meter arrows, buttons etc and I'm wanting to change it to purple, any recommendations on where to get them and how/where to install as well
  8. Exhaust

    Hi guys, Can I fit a 2014 ST180 Exhaust on a 2012 Zetec?
  9. Before I get the "don't bother" stuff, a little info. This isn't my first car or even my main car, it's just a free mk5 I was given by my parents, it's a W reg and it's only done 40k miles. My best friend has a MK3 Golf GTI that's now done 170k miles. Now according to online specs, the Golf does 0-60 in 12.00seconds and the Fiesta in 12.7secs. I'm wondering what I can do to get the fiesta to do 0-60 quicker than the Golf, it's not about making the fiesta some racing car, it's about keeping it looking as stock as possible and rubbing it in his face since he talks absolute rubbish about his car 24/7. I know for a fact his car is stock since he doesn't even know how to hold a spanner properly. Money isn't really an object since I'm paid quite well and I have a fair whack saved up for a "project". I really don't care about the car and I've also considered using it for hillclimbs as I've seen a few of the 1.25s used in the small engine category. Any help is appreciated, cheers guys! Josh
  10. Since I bought my ford a few months back I noticed that the aux is very loose and barely plays my music, any ideas on how to fix the problem?
  11. Hi This is my first post on here. I've got a 2009 fiesta zetec 1.25 and for the past week, every time I turn off the engine, the radio continues to play, and I can't turn it off by pressing the off button. I have to turn the ignition back on and turn it off, and then turn the ignition off. When I then go to get in the car the following morning, the time on the screen still says 18:04 for example, when it is 8am the following day. As soon as i turn the ignition, it updates to the correct time. Also, the ambient red glow around the radio buttons and keypad (I have the Bluetooth voice control if that makes a difference) stays on constantly, so I am worried it will drain the battery? Any thoughts would be very much appreciated! I'm thinking about booking it in to my nearest ford dealer as I thought it may need to be checked out by a main ford dealer as its electrical rather than local garage?unfortunately it has just run out of warranty (by a month). Thank you in advance, Sam
  12. Hello everyone, since buying a Ford in January and posting in the new members topic(Also January) i have not done a single thing on the forum since then, however i'm here today to show you what I've done with my car and what i hope to achieve next. Quick Side note: 1) I'm young and insurance skyrockets with modifications of the performance type, so yes i will be doing exhausts/remaps/air filters etc etc, but not until next year on my second NCB. :) 2)All of this was done by myself, everything. I'm fairly proud however constructive criticism is advised! 3)Any future modifications you want to suggest i'm absolutely all ears on it. Ok, so firstly my engine bay, now as said in the quick side notes unfortunately i can't go around buying cold air intakes and primary and secondary induction hoses which sucks, however i have made the most of it buy doing a little bit of personal styling. Primary induction hose and Air box have all been sprayed Red, and then once it was dry it was coated with lacquer for a bit of extra protection. I wanted to take out the Secondary hose and paint that but i couldnt seem to be able to take off the breather pipe? i tried looking online and on here and for the life of me i just couldn't find it, so i left it how it was.(Besides those two circular clips that attach it to the "Engine" sorry my car savvy is about 2/10, were awfully hard to put back on when they went off. Right, so Secondly i decided to give my interior a new breath of life aswell, The side trim where the door handle is, the main center console, and the plastic bit that covers your ford sync screen thing were all taken off and recoloured. I did this by using a lacquer remover type solution (Not used on the ford sync casing) to, well remover the lacquer and then i re-colored and re-lacquered for a protective finish. The i guess "Upper" center console(Radio controls volume control etc etc) was going to be taken out and re-coloured but i didnt realise the trim and the actual hardware were all as one bit? i'm sure there is a way to separate them but looking back on it i like how it is. Next i did the gear knob, it wasn't necessary but the plastic bit on top of the Ford gear knob came loose and was only being held on my one little plastic clip, so i decided to change that because why not? Well, Finally exterior mods, and i don't have much to say about this but all i've really done is install wind deflectors. I am planning on replacing the OEM aerial because it's just so unnecessarily big and looks out of place, i am also looking to have new badges to match the red, and i want to install a different rear bumper ( Will be done when i can modify the car to replace the exhaust system and maybe a triple-r composite splitter for the front. I will also be looking at re-colouring my brake pads or just waiting and buying some Red Brembo ones but i don't know yet, the one thing that is stumping me, is if i do decide to just re-colour the pads, do i also do the rear drumbrakes? or just get diskbrakes for the rear and have them red, don't really know. Anyway that's everything, some of the things i'm planning to do at the moment wont be done for some time but i'll get around to them and anything else i do ill be updating the post when i can as well. :) Thanks for taking the time to read it. Also please excuse the mess of photos i typed all of this and then decided to do the photos afterwards, its all in chronological order so its pretty easy to see what i've done. Also Alsom these bottom pictures are just a few "During process" ones, and finished product pictures (No chronological order).
  13. Hi there, I'm new to this sort of thing but had no option to come here for some advice! My car is a 2008 Focus Mk2.5 1.6 Zetec (petrol) (67,000 miles) and for the past few months it's had terrible starting issues that aren't exactly consistent. I turn on the ignition and go to start and it will turn over fine with a few coughs (trying to fire) and averagely starting after about 5/6 starts. (As I said it's not consistent as this morning it started 2nd try). Sometimes I will have a message pop up whilst I'm trying to start which is either; 'ESP off', 'Aux Heater 0%'. Also, when eventually started, (I'm not sure of this is connected to the situation) it splutters slightly for maybe like 1/4 mile down the road, with slight loss of power. In the afternoon it starts up first time (usually) so it's normally first thing in the morning. Hopefully one of you guys can point me in the right direction, thanks in advance! (Edit) The truth is I probably created an account many years ago and completely forgot! 😂
  14. Hi I have a question about power folding mirrors. I was checkingthe fuse box underneath the glove box and notice I have the right fuse box with one of the relays, however I have noticed the second relay is not there, but also the input to put the relay is not there either. Does anyone know why and how i can get passed this? Hope that makes sense.

  17. Upgrade to ST headlights

    Hi, So i want to upgrade my standard h15 headlights to the led drl you see on the ST. I have been looking around and found out that it is not that simple and that the led drls do not work as they are supposed to. Something about when drls are on, they are dim, then when headlights or sidelights are on they are bright, has anyone been able to sort this out and how have you done it?
  18. Cold air intake??

    So I just bought a 2006 mk6 fiesta zetec s, and it feels like it may be running a little rougher than usual, I've many opinions and 99% of them had said get a cold air intake. Now I'm bit of an amateur when it comes to upgrades and modifications, but does anyone know of any realiable kits that won't break the bank? Thanks *open to alternate suggestions*
  19. Hi all, on the 22nd October, 4 months after passing my driving test I purchased my first car. A 2005 mk2 Ford Focus Zetec Climate 1.6 petrol for 1175 GBP. I live in the north east of Scotland and got it from Edinburgh so 4 months of no driving having to do 170 miles was enough to get me used to the car. Being my first car my knowledge was limited and as time has passed the car had a few problems. Overall by now I have spent around 3000 GBP on the car not including the price of the car to begin with and although it has had problems the car I feel has been brought back to life. As I have owned this car I have learned more and more about cars in general. Always had a high interest in cars but obviously it grows when you get your first car. Anyway enough rambling. This is the car as I bought it > Then to current day > Things that have been done/repaired: (DIY mods) Exterior -tinted tail lights, head lights, indicators, fog lights, reversing lights/rear fogs -xenon white headlights, sidelights, full beam lights, registration lights, reversing light -sunstrip -wind deflectors -refurbed and painted alloys -carbon fiber wrapped plastic trim above fog lights -painted front grill -debadged the 'focus' and 'zetec' from the back -brake drums painted black -rear ford badge 'tinted' black -mudflaps rear and front Interior -new gear gaitor -carbon fiber wrapped central climate control panel, lower geat gaitor panel, steering wheel inserts -blue pvc trim round central climate control panel and air vents -leds in footwell -blue st style mats -aftermarket double din stereo (bluetooth aux etc.) -xenon white interior light, boot light -seatbelt harness covers -circular climate control knobs (Non-DIY mods) Exterior -custom made catback exhaust system Interior - N/A (DIY Repairs) Front brake discs and pads Full service (Garage Repairs) 2x Front wheel bearings 1x rear coil spring 2x rear shock absorbers New timing belt New spark plugs and leads 2x rear shock top mountings front suspension arm bush New clutch New handbrake New water pump New stock exhaust (before the custom catback) Plans for the future: Tint the back windows Paint the lower bumper black (the grey plastic) Paint the spoiler black (instead of grey plastic) Paint the brake calipers (blue or black undecided) Possibly get side skirts/bumpers (unlikely) Fix up the rust spots on the wings and sills Change colour of lights in instrument cluster and central panel Will get better photos/exhaust videos once the weather improves.
  20. Hello peoples of the Ford Owners Club! I have a 2009 Focus Zetec and I'm keen to upgrade the stock audio system. My wants are only to add some subs (underseat - gotta save that boot space) and some new front door speakers. After some deliberation with many audio fitters I've been told that the Focus is incapable of housing an underseat subwoofer due to the limited space. It seems the Kenwood subs (links below) are the thinnest around (70mm) and they still catch on the seat when it moves. Now feel free to absolutely roast me but I have to ask: Is there anything wrong with placing it sideways with velcro (as per) onto the air vents under the seat. Not blocking the vents themselves of course, just resting on top. The cardboard model I made seems to fit fine and with room at the sides for the cabling. Before I buy two subwoofers though it would be good to know if this is a terrible idea first of all. Anyone else with similar upgrade experience to the focus? Any help would be much appreciated. :) Michael https://www.caraudiocentre.co.uk/product_m-kenwood-ksc-sw11_p-31239.htm https://www.caraudiocentre.co.uk/product_m-kenwood-ksc-sw01_p-25624.htm
  21. Hey, ive got a remapped 1.0 zetec s and I've just put a r-sport induction on it and I'm not 100% sure but it feels like it doesn't pull as hard? Is this normal? Ahha tia
  22. Im wanting to buy some alloys if anyone is selling some (Not after the ford alloys). Just unsure on whether to stay with 18"s or to go 19"s. I have coilovers at the moments which needs to be fitted so can adjust to any height. Also Wanting to get the ST Flat Bottom Steering wheel which i need to know will fit my car and also if the cruise control function will work as i don't have that. I know that you need to mess around with a software to enable it but just want to know if i get the buttons and the wiring for it will it be a plug and play sort of thing with enabling it through a software or is it more harder than i think. Any suggestions on what mods to do to my car feel free. MODS DONE SO FAR: ST SPOILER, LIGHT SMOKE TAIL LIGHTS, HEKO WIND DEFLECTORS, DECHROMED, DEBADGED, GEL BADGE OVERLAYS, REAR WIPER DELETE. Thanks
  23. Zetec Mod Restrictions

    So was quite upset to get this from Triple R: "The low line kit will only be suitable if you have the Zetec S body kit on your car. " I've only the Zetec, so what are my options? Get it lowered? already had it tinted and remapped. Also, does the Zetetc S honeycomb grill fit the zetec? how about spoiler or anythint from the ST?
  24. Zetec 1.0 Ecoboost Mods

    Hi guys, So first post and I'll happily admit I'm a complete and utter newbie when it comes to cars but I really want to make something of my new Zetec Ecoboost 1.0. Pic attached. I've had a new sound system put in, engine remapped (added 60 bhp!), red and black seats and I'm going to get it lowered with Pumspeed coils but I have some really really basic questions: Are my wheels/alloys 15 or 16 inch? Can you put any size wheel/alloy on a car or does it have to be the same size wheels they are now? Any recommendations on some good alloy choices or place to get some? What are some easy mods to make that will make a real difference aesthetically, is painting the alloys black worth it and something I can do myself? Where can I get spoiler from and is it something I can also do myself? Sorry, real basic stuff I know but anyone got a Zetect ecoboost 1.0 with mods and want to share? (not the ST line as everytime I see that it makes me wish I went for that instead!) J
  25. Hi, I am looking to upgrade a Focus mk1.5 2001-2004 Zetec/Ghia 1.6 estate to an ST170 in terms of trim i.e. Alloys, front and rear bumpers, headlights, leather interior, modern sound system and possibly some upgrades to the suspension and engine. Could anyone give me some advice on performing this upgrade? And does anyone know of any good breakers or spares yards in the Essex area to get parts? Thanks, Dan
