it is a MK1, if the front indicators are in the headlights it is the facelift model or as some people refer to this as a MK1.5

Welcome to the forum,
Perhaps try e-bay for a haynes manual to suit your motor, inside it will give details on service interval etc.

If you get a moment join photobucket and upload some images of your motor, You can then edit to remove your reg plate etc. Then copy the .img code from each image uploaded and paste it on to a post in the forum for the image to display. You may also like to log on to DMB Graphics for some Gel badge overlays to fit over your existing blue ford badges: http://www.dmb.uk.co...es-gel-overlays

And finally A Green Cotton induction filter will make gear change slightly more positive aswell as increase your mpg. If purchasing one then see my guide in the list below this post for a 10% discount code, you may also like the footwell lighting guide and additional boot light, most of the guides are available in PDF format to download and print.

I had a Mk1.5 2002 Face Lift , maybe there were Mk1 2003 laying around ! , but if you saw a Mk1 2004 then it must have been sat in very long grass before it was registered.

In the beginning
The Ford Focus was officially born in 1998 – featuring a user-friendly, curvy interior and daringly extravagant exterior.
The original Focus heralded Ford’s line of “new edge” vehicles – cars which featured modern, angular lines which was the beginning of a design memorable for the ‘Blue Oval'.

Since 1998, it’s been the biggest selling car in Britain every year. There is now a huge range of models and trims to choose from...
Models
1. First generation – the initial 1998 model had engine sizes ranging from 1.4 to 2-litres, with transmissions including five-speed and six-speed manual gearboxes and a four-speed automatic.
Initial diesel models featured the Endura-D power unit, which was eventually replaced with the punchy Duratorq engine in 2002.
The Focus had four exciting body styles to begin with – two hatchbacks, a saloon and an estate.
In 2001, it received a raft of changes, including revamped headlights, bumpers and an array of new colours. Optional extras were added, including a navigation system and six-CD changer.
The Focus featured four different trim levels: CL, LX, Zetec and Ghia.
2. Second generation – the 2004 Focus hatch weighed more than the original, but maintained a similar design. A new range of body styles were made available, including the coupe cabriolet.

Its shape was smoothed out to take on rivals including the new Golf and Audi A3, making the Focus look more streamlined than ever.
The interior was also vastly improved, with more tactile plastics replacing those of the previous model.
Revised Duratec 1.8-litre and 2-litre engines replaced the original Zetec, and drivers could opt for a 2.5-litre turbocharged engine in the hot ST.

From September 2006, Ford revised the standard trim specifications slightly, to allow for the introduction of further options called X-Packs.

Six versions are available:

• Studio – the base model, with power steering, electric windows, driver and passenger airbags and central locking
• Style – with alloy wheels, sports steering wheel and air-conditioning
• Zetec – this had sports suspension and interior/exterior design extras
• Zetec Climate – featuring a heated windscreen and air conditioning
• Ghia – offering an auto-dimming rear-view mirror and cruise control
• Titanium – includes CD and MP3 player, sports seats and privacy glass
3. 2008 Focus – the new Focus sports a sharper, “kinetic design” feel, bringing it in line with the new Mondeo and Galaxy - while still maintaining a similar shape and nature to the current Focus.
It also features ‘FordEasyFuel,’ which stops you from putting in the wrong fuel type and a clever dual clutch system for faster gear changes.
The new Focus is scheduled for release February 2008. For more information read our new Ford Focus preview.
4. The RS – this hot hatch was the first car to feature the RS badge since the Escort RS 2000. The turbo-charged 2-litre, 215bhp Zetec-E engine could reach 0-60mph in 6.4seconds, and its four cylinders and 16 valves allowed it to hit a top speed of 144mph.

It won Best Used Car 2007 in the Auto Trader Used Car Awards.
5. The ST170 – this sporty Focus boasts a high-flow aluminium cylinder head, sports catalytic converter, side airbags, leather seats and a revised power steering pump. It also comes with alloy wheels and a six-speed manual gearbox as standard.
6. Coupe Cabriolet – announced at the Geneva Motor Show in 2006, this sleek convertible boasts a two-piece folding roof and sporty exterior. Read our Ford Focus Coupe Cabriolet review.
7. Second generation ST – this popular hot hatch has a five cylinder, turbocharged 2.5-litre engine which produces 225bhp.

Add alloy wheels, sports seats and chrome exhaust and you’ve got a high-performance version of the Focus. You can read our review on the Ford Focus ST here.
8. ECOnetic – a green model which emits 115g/km of CO2 from its 1.6-litre diesel engine, placing it into tax band B alongside the Toyota Prius and Volkswagen’s BlueMotion 2.
9. C-MAX – a larger, mini-MPV version of the successful vehicle – which comes in 1.6-litre, 1.8-litre and 2.0-litre diesel, flexi fuel and petrol versions.
10. FFV – another green vehicle, this time with a flexi-fuel engine which runs on E85 bioethanol as well as regular unleaded. The estate featured a 1.8-litre engine, making it a solid performer too.
