#398654 Guide For Fitting Daytime Running Lights Focus Mk2.5

Posted by Lenny on 17 August 2014 - 06:24 PM

Thinking of doing this at some point, just a quick question, so bar E marked and dim/off when lights on are there any mot issues? Do we need to interior switch for example?

No MOT issues alsong as you have them dim when position lights etc. are active mate,
These led units are manufactured by Osram then fitted to the fog surrounds and supplied as a model specific kit by a company in Taiwan,
Being Osram you can be guranteed the E4 stamp is genuine and you are buying quality kit,

The switch is not a requirement,
But its nice to have the option of driving in complete darkness in the event of approaching a stunned rabbit,
Or your house is being burgled at night while your out,
And you want to pull in to the drive way as discreetly as possible,
Nice to be capable of turning them off.

#398378 Higgsy's Zetec S Thread

#398307 Autolock

Posted by Lenny on 16 August 2014 - 08:05 PM

Still waiting for my new  ZS to arrive (ford taking their time as usual) anyway I'm driving my mums 2013 Zetec at the moment and wondered wether there is an autolock feature that you can enable. On my old '02 clio I liked how it locked the doors at about 10mph and sort of got used to it so was wondering if the fiesta is capable of doing it from some hidden settings screen or something. 

The Auto lock feature has been phased out on all cars built from 2007 onwards,
The European safety crew had issues with autolock there claims were they didnt always unlock in the event of colission making it more difficult for emergency services,

Some cars such as tge focus mk2.5 were designed in 2005 before this rule came in to force,
So the software on the mk2.5 allowed this autolock feature,
It is possible to activate using a modified ELM327.
However all cars built from scratch 2007 onwards wont have autolock feature.

You can still press the button to lock all doors,
Or
Fit an aftermarket alarm system which supports the feature,
But no car will roll off the production line with autolock ever again.

Now fitted to the car,
Bit tricky getting the spring to hook back in but got it after 10 minutes of talking to it: lol:

Here's before:

IMG_20140809_173726_zpseks3zpyt.jpg

Here's after
PLEASE NOTE: IF YOUR COLOUR BLIND YOU PROBABLY WONT NOTICE THE DIFFERENCE BELOW,

IMG_20140816_165703_zpscpltii8v.jpg

Yes in the above image i also thought the end cap had come out a different shade but its not, its the curve and way it catches the light.

IMG_20140816_165730_zpsewr5d2ck.jpg

Another subtle improvement if i do say so myself :)

While fitting the wiper VickiC has informed me that she will soon be making a comeback next week,

She says she's also going to create three guides on the forum specially for the women drivers.

When asked :lol: "what guides do you plan to create"

She replied:

1.
Filling windscreen bottle thingy under the bonnet,
2.
Diagnosing the correct fuel for your car at the pumps followed by putting in in the car yourself,
3.
Checking the oil level in the yoke,

I just hope she gets them all rite first time,

Great minds think alike lenny. I done mine today aswel.

SNAP!!

I put a large bag on the kitchen floor and sprayed it in the house: lol: bad bad idea,
Whole family has since shipped out of the house due to the smell of solvents,
My nostrils are also gloss black and right side of my face is aching but second coat applied now just waiting for it to dry,
Was going to use vicki's hair dryer then i thought better not lol

Second coat applied

Update:

Perhaps i got out of bed too early this morning i don't know,
What i do know is,: the day is feeling very long and I'm bored :(

So I've removed the rear wiper from the focus,
Dissected its components and sprayed it gloss black same as front grills and splitter,

Good thing about the bosh rear wiper blade is:
The rubber strip is interchangeable so ill be able to keep the gloss black arm when changing the wiper.

Here's the progress so far:

#398138 The Day I Bricked Myself

Posted by Lenny on 16 August 2014 - 12:16 PM

Would have been epic tarantino stuff,
Had a motorcycle been behind you,
Bonnet ripped off rotating in the air coliding with the head of the motorcyclest
Although you would need a front and rear dash cam for that,
Can you imagine how many Youtube hits that would get?


#398128 The Day I Bricked Myself

Posted by Lenny on 16 August 2014 - 12:07 PM

I'm not so sure they would Lenny, I think the force of the wind grabbing the bonnet would either rip the piston out the cylinder or rip the complete strut off it's mounting.

After viewing a few episodes of "Air Crash Investigations " on Discovery Channel this morning, yeah mate i agree with you 100% :lol:
