Hello,

Here is an image I have taken after seeing drips comming down. I dont know what it is. See the image attached. Any ideas what it is? the substance seems clear like water, and dries up leaves no mark. The pic has been taken from the front of the car

It's the ice from the aircon defrosting, the same as your fridge would if you turned the power off. Quite normal. B)

If you want a simple car get a "Morris Minor" from the 1960s, If you are too young to know what one looks like, Google it, then I guess you would then prefer your Focus with all it's mod-cons; Modern cars are full of electronics and a nightmare to understand. :)

A lot of it is down to government legislation on emissions, but the electronics also give you all the toys.

I can say with certainty, I would much rather have my old focus back (regardless of the nightmares it caused) than have a moggy!
