Topics I've Started


05 September 2015 - 05:09 PM

I needed a cheap pair if axle stands for the occasional oil change and brake pad change etc nothing professional. Halfords have an offer at the moment of a small Trolley jack, a pair of axle stands, a pair of wheel chocks, a wheel brace and a mechanics creeper. The normal price was £75 reduced to £50 and now £40 with my discount card it's a bargain at £34. Not sure how long they will last but worth a go.

Fault Codes

06 August 2015 - 12:35 PM

I've been messing about with an obd2 device and I was surprised to find that my 2005 MKII Focus only had one fault code stored. The code P0335 relates to the crankshaft position sensor over voltage or something similar. Do I need to replace the sensor or is there something else required?
Thanks in advance for any help


Rattle When Turning

30 June 2015 - 04:11 AM

My 2005 MKII Focus had developed an annoying rattle when turning. The car drives perfectly but when you turn this annoying rattle starts and goes when you straighten up the wheel. I've done something to my shoulder and cant check under bonnet at the moment. Anyone got any ideas or could point me in the right direction?


05 Focus Lx Window Switch Illumination

The lighting on my electric window switches and the door mirror control is dismal you almost need a torch to see them in the dark. Is it possible to replace them or upgrade them to LEDs.

Odd High Pitched Noise

15 April 2015 - 12:24 PM

Just been out on a short trip with my dad and a high pitched rattle could be heard coming from the passenger side of the car. I couldn't suss out what the hell it was. I tried moving the steering side to side, tried the brakes and wipers all without success. Sod it I thought I'll have a look later after I've had a brew. Sat in the house and the noise had followed me, my dad is almost completely deaf and the noise was his hearing aids that had just been serviced at the hospital.
