No problem Michael,
Here is a link to purchase, but please confirm with the supplier prior t purchase that you require the drum shaped filter not the panelhttp://www.priracing...tton-air-filter
When purchasing use discount code: FORDOWNERSCLUB10
here is my fitting guide and detail about Green Cotton induction,
You can see the difference compared to the stock paper filterhttp://www.fordowner...-fitting-guide/



Thanks so much Lenny! :)

You're a good lad...

God, the state of your stock filter before you removed it!! WOW

Just goes to show that a service isn't always done "properly".

I will always double check any work done on my car (if possible).

Thanks again pal.

Have something to contribute?

Just ordered a "green" air filter using the owners club discount code. :)

I did as you suggested Lenny and asked that they ensure a "drum" filter is sent.

Cant wait to fit it.....

Taken from my thread on this:

 

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< UPDATE >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< UPDATE >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< UPDATE >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
 
I purchased a cheap throttle position sensor from ebay for £15 (genuine part normally costs £70), fitted it and didn't solve the problem, so moving on.
 
After some research this is what I have found with regards to the stuttering/fuel starvation/misfiring :::
 
ecutesting.com :::
This common fault of misfire on two cylinders or complete non start is often caused by the ignition coil pack shorting out on the vehicle - it is very important that the ignition coil pack is replaced at the same time as refitting your ECU after it has been repaired - or your faulty coil pack may damage the repaired ECU. - http://www.ecutestin...u_misfire_.html
 
EXCELLENT thread from RAC.co.uk on this topic :::
Lots of detail into this very common Focus MK1 98-04 fault here: 
 
How I think the problem occurred :::
I believe that when the speed sensor started malfunctioning I continued to drive the car, which may have caused the faulty speed sensor to damage the Ignition Coil Pack which then damaged the ECU.
 
How I'm going to tackle it now :::
Take out the ECU, read it's part number and send the ECU off for repair/replacement by ecutesting.com for (hopefully) £150.
Purchase new ignition coil pack for £25.
 
Will let you know how it goes   :)
