Done, was pretty easy, was considering taking the car to a mate, but after examining the wires, i soon worked out what was what.

Hi i've got one no my TDCI estate, are they any good as a tow car, seems to be a bit lacking in low down grunt for towing to me?

Hi, I have a (roughly) bit bigger than 8' x 5' trailer, the most my focus has pulled at the moment is about half a tonne of sand, and to be honest i didnt really notice i was hauling it, except when going down hills or breaking. There was one big up hill, which leads into a stop at the top, and the car drove fine. I know not everyone would want to haul with a focus, but my location forces me too, buying a 4x4 pickup is an option, but, i'd need to have a 4 door or a 2nd car... :rolleyes:

Anyway hope this helps
Brendan
