as the title says guys just went and bought a 2006 1.6 ti-vct focus zetec with the climate pack 50 odd k on the clock and a full ford history as the mk1 is getting on a bit and its just time for a change. i must admit i was tempted to move away to the darkside and buy a vauxhall for a bit but after driving the 1.6 i was won over, yep it does have the usual leaky washers onto the plugs but the ford guys were nice enough to take the plugs out and show they werent ceased in there so they are going to seal the washer jets by popping them out fitting the new ones with a bit of sealant

Glad to read your still sporting the blue Oval,
dont forget to check the boot panel where the water jet hose rubs off the body, its been known to rust the panel check my link below,
when you get a momment post some pics of the new motor, do you find the handling any better than the MK1 B)

when you copy the image code from photobucket, you have to remove the (img) part from either side of the link so it will work mate.
