How To Reset Everything?

11 May 2015 - 06:54 PM



I've bought a nearly new Focus mk3.5 with 1.5TDCI engine.


Just wondering how easy it is to reset all settings back to factory default when I take delivery? Is it just a case of taking the battery off for a few minutes? I want ALL settings gone; even radio presets if possible. It has Ford Sync 2




What Is This Noise?

26 May 2014 - 03:12 PM



This noise has been bugging me for nearly 2 years now, over that time it's slowly been getting worse. Started at about 60,000mls and now at 90,000 miles and its worse. The noise is worse when the belt is under load, like with A/C on and heated windscreen the noise is much louder. I did take it to Ford but they just said its the "FEAD" belt, and recommended replacing the belt, however I don't know if it is the belt itself. Any ideas?


I've attached a sound clip of the noise



Rumbling Noise At 50Mph+

13 May 2014 - 08:17 PM



My car has over the past year and a half developed a rumbling noise when going at speed, its loudest at about 65mph, but starting to be audible at lower and higher speeds. It happens when going straight, or turning either way, and happens when i push the clutch in and let it roll, or in gear. Started at about 75,000mls, now at 90,000mls.


ANy ideas?
