Taking Out The Battery

04 May 2014 - 09:25 AM

Having a spot of difficulty taking out my battery. The job should be simple, however I'm being hampered by a dodgy bolt. It twists fine after initially it was stuck with rust. That's all it does now twist but won't come out. Tried multiple tools but stubbornly refuses to come out. Any idea.

Installing A Blue Tooth Car Radio

15 April 2014 - 06:09 PM

I Have been installing a new Bluetooth radio in my mark one Ford Focus but during the last step of the process I have been attempting to feed the MIC wire through the back of the radio and out again past my footwell. I am having a few issues as I'm just not able to feed it out properly. Any common sense tips I can apply to this quandry?

Hi folks.


Any idea on a decent battery to get for my Ford Focus 2001 1.6 motor? 


Been accidentally flattened over the last year and was recommended to replace it. 

Timing Belt Renewal Cost

25 March 2014 - 12:52 PM

Need a spot of advice on what would be a fair price for a timing belt renewal.
On the very edge of needing my timing belted changed. 83k miles and 13 year old Ford Focus 1.6 Ghia. Got a quote for replacement including water pump with parts, labour and Vat at £292.
Is this the going rate? Seems quite high to me.

Can anyone recommend any good windscreen wiper blades (front only) for my 2001 Ford Focus 1.6.


Thanks in advance.
