  • Ford Model: focus estate

Posted 03 April 2010 - 09:45 PM

Ive just recently purchased a ford focus estate 1.8 turbo diesel, t reg

got a few niggles with it fan motor for inside of car only works on 1 and 2 settings(previous owner did,nt tell me)

Also ive noticed it seems to mist up quite a bit on the windows, ive checked for wet patches in footwells etc, just in case heater matrix ive had one go before i my previous car, it does clear if i set the fans going and internal circulation going, its just a bit annoying

Anybody shed any light on the matter, i quite handy when it comes to sorting my cars, i based in basingstoke

Have something to contribute?

My Focus did this when i first got it too. I put it down the the fact that it had been stood for a while not being used while on the forecourt. I also had the famous pollen filter/passenger footwell damp problem.

Give it a blast on a motorway somewhere with the heaters on pointing at the carpets and the windows down just a touch, This should get rid of any damp lurking on or underneath the carpets.

recirculating the air causes misting sounds like the pollen filter is needing replaced mate when it gets bunged up it will cause misting

Ah, the pollen filter! I think I'm having problems with that. Just this morning, I was cleaning the mats and when I lifted the passenger one, it was damp underneath. Are these easy to change?
