Focus 09 2Nd Service

22 October 2010 - 10:42 AM

my 09 focus zetec is due its 2nd service soon. i've been quoted £160 which is ok for a ford dealer i suppose. i have read the brake fluid should be changed every 2 years. is this correct? is this included in the price or is it extra. is it recomended to change the brake fluid or should i just leave it?. if it is extra can i decide not to have it replaced without affecting the warranty?

lots of questions, sorry!!!!!!!!
any help appreciated

frozen locks

31 December 2009 - 12:49 PM

i drive an 09 focus zetec. i've only had the car 2 months and recently in the cold weather i can open the car door but it won't shut again. the door just bounces open again. when the temperature rises or if i pour some water on the door it seems to release the mechanism and the door shuts again. is this a common fault with ford locks or should i book my car in to have the locks checked.
i haven't owned a ford for years and i haven't had this problem with any other make of car i have driven recently. is the lock mechanism insulated?

would anyone be interested in swapping a space saver for a steel wheel. it would have to be brand new as my steel is. i would give you the polystyrene infills as well. i live in central scotland

mud flaps/ sill protectors-lockwood

hi guys, how easy are mud flaps to fit to my focus. is there anything i need to be wary of before fitting them?
i am thinking of buying lockwood sill protectors. has anyone used them? they are cheaper than ford ones considerably thats why i am looking at them or does anyone recomend any other type.
