Air Bags Did Not Go Off

25 August 2013 - 06:38 PM

A friend of mine as just had a head on crash in a ford focus  MK 2.5 09 reg speed about 40 mph  some 18 year old lad 3 time over the limit, all ok just a bit of back and neck pain. but the thing is the air bags did not go off.

there was no light on to say that the air bags had a fault.

so i would like to know how you would go about checking they will work when needed

Dpf Additve Tank

Hi can any one tell me which pipe is the filler pipe and which 1 is the overflow pipe on the DPF additve tank on a focus 08 as it is not that clear in the Haynes manual,

so I looked it up on net and it say the long pipe is the filler and short 1 the overflow  but in the manual the pic looks like the short pipe is the filler so before i start i would like to know for sure.

Courtesy Light Switches

03 February 2013 - 07:36 PM

Hi all a few weeks ago my courtesy light would not work so try to free it with WD spray and some others but with know joy. and has the switch is a microswitch incorporated into the door lock and are not available separatey. It was off to ebay and got a lock assembly for £26. so i set about fitting it this weekend which is a bigger job then i first thought as you have to take the window glass out, sorry i have not got pics of the door apart but when i looked in the bottom of the door i found this piece of plastic Attached File  DSCF7548.JPG   196.53KB   27 downloads I could not see were it come from so put the second hand part on, so later on that night i took the broken one apart and this is where it goes Attached File  DSCF7549.JPG   191.47KB   37 downloadsAttached File  DSCF7551.JPG   158.8KB   42 downloadsAttached File  DSCF7554.JPG   173.53KB   41 downloadsAttached File  DSCF7555.JPG   230.16KB   40 downloads
the last pic is of the lock assembly as it come off ebay.
so if your Courtesy light switches stop working and you find this in the bottom of the door now you know where it goes.
