take that pipe off and inspect it for cracks, high possibility it will just be that

Thanks, ok so it is not sounding like anything too serious.

Other than this, car has been perfect, very pleased with it.

As promised, here are some pictures of the area of interest today, certainly not as slick and shiny as it used to be.....

Hi there,

Thanks for both of the posts.


I most certainly do not rev the hell out of it when cold (Good question though), never used to when I had my petrol and no certainly don't with this - my first diesel. Until the temp hits middle (not sure what the actual temp is) I lay off the revs. It works really well as the time it takes me to get to the motorway for work, is just enough time for it to warm.


I will get some more recent images and post back. If it is the intercooler hose as @IINexuxII has mentioned, would this be an expensive job?


I am told these engines are supposed to be quite good and relatively bullet proof. Have not had a single engine related trouble since owning, and it is very economical - has saved me a great deal since the days of a petrol 1.6.


Will take some pics of engine bay tomorrow and post up. Thanks again for your posts :)

In Topic: Best Dash Cam For Mk2 Focus????

05 July 2014 - 04:29 PM

Not the most precise way to mount a non-lcd dash cam, but I simply lined it up to where I thought it would need to be, got a whiteboard pen and drew around the mount (being a teacher can have its perks), then held camera there whilst running short record session. Then replayed in my car on laptop and I could see if it needed moving left, right, up, down. I would just repeat process, wiping out whiteboard pen lines until I got it just right.




thanks guys

the mobius looks good but I think id rather have a screen to see the lens view and help position the cam.


Sean looking forward to seeing your footage when uploaded. James I think like you I may wait for a dual system where the rear cam comes with the front cam instead of having 2 separate cams and having to wire into the car in 2 places. Also it may prove to be better value getting a dual cam but does anyone know of any one the market?
