Hey Lenny would they pass mot?

Not in dipped beam or high beam no, because led cant be focused they spread light everywhere,
But in fogs, or reverse even in parking bulbs they will pass because these lights are position marking lights not required to have a focused point of light.
Best supplier of cree is alltronix.co.uk
Some ebay sellers supply fake cree that dont work.

ok thanks for the advice :) am I right in thinking that hids are more of a pain than there worth ? thanks again

I personally don't think there worth the hassle mate,
Law changes all the time on them and most are blinding,

I was wanting to upgrade the dip beam on my fiesta and was looking at the cree led conversion and was wondering if anybody on here had had any experience with them ? I was looking at hids but they seem to have bad reviews. just looking for a little brighter and a blue tint  thanks

Hi Ricky,
Cree bulbs are great for fog lights and reverse lights they look just like HID
But they are not very bright for road driving,
The look bright but they dont spread it on the road,
Ive got them in fogs front and rear aswell as reverse,
But for dipped beam i highly recommend Osram cool blue intence there 4600kelvin and great light.

Thanks for the help, I'm going to keep the FSH main dealer so may just mention it then, if they want extra labour, I'll just buy the part.
I'm sure it's rotten it feels 'crunchy' when I press it!
Thanks again.

Ive got an electronic boot handle button removed from a 2010 focus if ypu want it,
10 pounds posted on Tuesday if your interested let me know and ill find it,
Came as part of a plastic boot panel section i purchased on eBay a while back,
Not sure how much ford chsrge for them but 10 pounds will cover P&P
Its not doing anything in storage with me might aswell be of use to someone,

Ill do a guide on removing the panel tomorrow no obligation :)
Ive got enough pictures in my photobucket archives to create it,
I recommend using silicone around bolt holes when resealing the panel to the boot itself too.


#403585 Guide: Fitting Mud Flaps Focus St Focus Rs Focus Zetecs

Posted by Lenny on 31 August 2014 - 12:17 AM

Hi all,
Ford don't manufacture mud flaps for the Mk2 or Mk2.5 Focus ST, RS or ZetecS body,
So here's a guide on how to make your own factory look set that will last a lifetime.

You need to purchase a set of these exact flaps:
http://m.ebay.co.uk/...2401?nav=SEARCH

Then you need to make up a little bracket,
Now you can use two 2p coins for this, all your doing is bridging the existing screw,
Let me explain:

The below image shows the rear wheel arch with top and bottom factory screw in place,
The top screw will go through the bracket, while the second hole will grip the custom mud flap to the bracket allowing the wide flap to sit tidy,
Bottom factory screw also drill through custom flap insert factory screw through flap in to factory hole

See here little bracket fitted,

Image2153.jpg

Image2154.jpg

Lower factory screw also fitted gripping the flap tight:

Image2156.jpg

Repeat process on passenger side rear arch,

Image2002.jpg

Image2000.jpg

Now for the front flaps fitting...


See markings in image below,
A small plate is fitted to the top factory scew,
This plate sits between the arch and mud flap to keep the flap flush with the side skirt.

010820106771.jpg

The screws supplied with the universal flaps are 3/32
This is the reason you need to use a 3/32 drill bit when adding additional pilot holes,

The measurements marked out on the skirt:
160mm
And
Inwards 12mm
This exact location is a hollow cavity within the side skirt,
You can safely drill in to the skirt end cap securing the mud flap without making contact with any metal of the car.

Fitted over two years now, still like the first day fitted,
My cars lowerd 35mm ST ride height no issues scraping flaps atall.
Even picked up an aero wrapper which i thought was funny since the flaps themselves are quite lite,

#403575 Mudflaps Focus 2006 Titanium

Posted by Lenny on 30 August 2014 - 10:52 PM

Crap...... thanks jeebowhite. What abiut that plastic bit which "pretend" to be a mudflap? Lol


Genuine ford mudflaps mk2 2005-2008 and mk2.5 2008-2011 are identical kit,
Cheapest supplier is Fordpartsuk.com
They dont require any drilling or removal of wheels to fit,
Ive had the m before i fitted the ZetecS kit,
The come supplied with fitting instructions two sets front and rear, mk2 and mk2.5 kits are identical.

Have a look at Ford's own accessory mudflaps - I've had them on several cars and they fit pretty well plus come with fixings/clamps suitable so you don't need to drill holes.
 
Just a pity they don't do a set to fit the Focus ST :(

+1
Are you looking for a set of flaps for your ST?

I can show you how to fit a perfect set that will last the life of the car, mine are fitted over two years,
I can link parts and comply the guide,

In fact ill do it anyways for anyone searching via google,
These fit ZetecS, ST and RS focus 100%

Not much been happening lately, had the timing belt done last week. Car seems a lot quieter now which is nice. Getting a new rear droplink, driveshaft to gearbox seal, mudflaps and lowering springs done on tuesday :-) hopefully thatll have me sorted for the first FOC Ireland meeting !

Great peace of mind having done the timing belt mate,
Look forward to some pics on Tuesday evening, mudflaps alone seem to make the car look lower, will look great lowerd and handle even better,
Aswell as looking forward to seeing it at the meet next saturday hopfully the weather is dry on the day wont be long now :)
