Haha I already have the screaming toddler! Just managed to put her back in her own bed after being curled up like a cat at the foot of mine trying to avoid flailing arms and legs since 1 o'clock
Clive I like it!
Also just being nosy- what's Cork like? Actually planning a holiday there next year!
Sent from my GT-I9300 using Ford OC mobile app
I'm sure mick can advise better as he lives in the county,
But fota wildlife park is brilliant,
If driving, take a day to drive to dingle co.Kerry see fungy the dolphin and sea life in dingle both seeing fungy and sea life are eighty next to each other,
Very scenic journey from cork to Kerry along the coast too.
Nice scenic areas, outside of the city, cork jail is another attraction n longer active its a history tour
Garnish island is just off the coast aswell, its around half a day, boat takes 15minutes and walking around the island takes 2 hours.
I recommend bringing the car and sat av to best enjoy cork, cheaper than tour buses and perticurally with children its easier to have the car stop and go when and where you want to,
We have been twice on holidays down there with our two kids 3-4 days would do a lot though.
Here's a picture I took of the focus on the cork/Kerry mountains on the way to dingle :
I would consider 120mph as fast,
But for me consistent speed at 120 or any high speed doesn't give me the rush,
Its more the acceleration in getting up to 120,
When 120 has been achieved for me its time to slow down and go again.
In response to stef there
Id love a bike mate either Yamaha R6 then when Id masters that Id really wet my pants on an R1
But Id be dead, Id go too hard
I've settled for Yamaha designed carbs instead
looking at changing my rear lights as you've done above for my focus. Great guide also!
Only question is, would I need to change any wiring at all when it comes to changing the units or is it purely 'plug in' and they work as I have a 09 focus?
Help would be much appreciated.
These units are a straight plug in and they work in all hatch focus 2008-2011
Its the older mk2 2005-2008 that requires splicing of the loom,
But your facelift model (has clear tail units not half red half clear) will be straight swap unplug and plug,
Just like the guide.
Lenny you star!!Thank you so much!!It seems that halfords try to employ numptys for the fun off it!! When I was looking at a new stereo I said it's double din and all they wanted to do was sell me a single din haha!! I only went in there because they had the Sony unit I was looking at cheaper than anywhere else.Needless to say my money went else where and I ended up with a pioneer
Ah pioneer is a good make too, I've got a single din pioneer in my double din slot of the Levin,
Perhaps halfords done the same thing to the guy who bought that lol
95% of the time your better off with eBay on anything car related,
Then the other 5% of the time there's caraudiodirect.co.uk
Go to halfords to view the item then go online to purchase.
Hi guys, I've got a 2010 focus zetec, and I need some new bulbs but when I went to get some they asked if they were HID or XENON.
Now to be completely honest I haven't got a clue what they are and was wondering if anybody on here could help?
Thanks in advance guys
!Removed! hell are they idiots were you went clearly must be 2010 focus zetec has standard bulbs xenon wasnt halfords was it lol
The bulbs you require are:
H7 low beam
H1 high beam
H11 front fog lights
T10 front parking bulbs.
I went to my local halfords before and requested "body kit adhesive"
I was hoping to get two tubes of tiger seal,
But no they presented me with a 30ml yes 30ml tube of plastic glue,
I want body kit adhesive for a full size real car, its a real car with a full body kit,
How many 30ml tubes will that take,
I really wanted to tell them off, but I couldn't stop laughing at the stupidity
^ One of the greatest replies I have ever stumbled across
!Removed! nora lenny, did you already have a bad morning before writing that lmao..... totally 1000% in agreement with everything you said lenny.
U the man Lenny a+ brilliant haha
+1 that brighened up my day
Id just like to add this note to keep things equal on the forum;
My response is my personal opinion, I'm glad others agree and find it amusing, its always good to brighten peoples day but it is never my intent to make fun at the expence of others, in this case it just happens to have turned out that way
Thanks for agreeing though,
I know many of you guys have genuinly got alot of experience in mechanics and it is for that reason great to see you supporting my opinions on blanking the egr.
I treat people how they treat others and in this case it required some arrogance.
to be honest i havent took it for a test drive since fitting mate,
Could be 5bh per sticker, good job its one one each side or the car would be pulling to one side caused by single sided +5bhp torque steer
Welcome to the forum,
Take some time out to research the forum rules and follow them by introducing yourself in the "newbie section"
I notice if you filled the vehicle description out correctly on your profile correctly; you drive an ST understandably its not a modern diesel engine so your personal concern over egr blanking of your own vehicle is non existent.
Moving on from this mate; ford didn't design the modern diesel engines which they have fittted to there cars which half of your life did you spend being the mechanic ?
My guess is; youve spent the first half
And now spending the second half being an arrogant !Removed! hole
The diesel engines ford now use with the exemption of the 1.8tdci are. Citroen Peugeot engines,
Ford head puffin a cigar got on the phone too gas monkey "gimmie cheap diesel engine that's economical, we'll sort the body just gimme something cheap with high mpg" they don't care about long term reliability that doesn't make money as I'm sure you as a mechanic yourself are well aware; fix it right the first time they won't be back motto.
Take a seat for this one; your ST engine.. its a Volvo mate, not a ford designs engine neither, has the inlet penillum split on you yet? Due at around 25,000 research that as it applies to your motor directly.
Aswell as the headlight washer jet covers known to depart from the body at 5,000 upwards,
Now on diesel engines the egr valve recirculates waste gasses in to the induction system instead of 100% clean air, this is in a bid to create an engine that wins stars on the European sales market for fuel efficiency and lowest in class emissions,
They want to sell, sell, sell, they no longer care about reliability.
The recirculation of waste gases is proven to contaminate the oil with excessive levels of carbon thus blocking oil feed pipes to the turbo causing turbo failure and excessive engine wear,
If I was a car manufacturer or a mechanic Id be all in favour of the egr and agents blanking it,
Because as a car manufacturer or a mechanic Id be making more money replacing blown turbos, blocked oil feed pipes, contaminated induction systems and carbon caked oil sumps.
But since I'm not either, as an independent road user and daily driver of an egr equipped vehicle I have done my research and decided the best option for me with my car is to blank the egr valve and prolong the life of my 32,000euro four wheeled investment.
I'm speaking from experience with diesel engine and from my experience buddy when it comes to egr blanking and understanding its functionality your speaking from your anal passage.
Typical mechanic too,
Opting to change the glow plugs when in discussion about working on a completely different part of the car
Any chance your a ford mechanic?
They changed my whole pollen filter housing when changing the pollen filter,
I'm not here to convince anyone to do anything,
I'm talking from personal experience and sharing that with others.
The ford mechanics don't design the cars, the he ford mechanic agreed with me on banking the egr,
He doesn't drive a ford body or Peugeot engine, he drove a Daewoo,
Again his personal experience added to my own personal experience and research after all he's servicing the things every day, he doesn't design them but he sees the wear and tare and with that knowledge he agreed yes blanking egr is most certainly the thing to do for lower carbon contamination.
