#447857 Aircon Pipes Disconnected On My Focus Mk2 2006 1.6

Posted by jbeer on 23 January 2015 - 09:32 PM

I had to change my Air Con Condenser in Apr last year and got it from ebay for about £50.

Not the easiest part to install, you'll need to jack up the front, take the undertrays off, Imtercooler off, drop the main car rad off its brackets then you can start to think about putting the Condenser in. It's a tight fit but do-able

Right gotcha, so you want to know if your current looms are plug 'n' play to the red standard lights?

If yes then I don't know sorry

Yes I've used Wynn's before and think there products are great.

I've not had any issues to date with the EGR valve so just want to give it a clean through…think I'll give the cleaner a go

Thanks for the links mate but unfortunately they don't work....I've previously followed the Haynes Manual upto the point of slackening the lower retaining bolt which I couldn't find at the time but now I have found out where it is so should now be do able.


Well first on the list for this year was cleaning out the EGR Valve.....failed at he last hurdle!

Managed to get as far as slackening the lower retaining bolt which is a bi*ch to get to and could not get the screw undone as its a torx screw and very difficult to get to. Would be easy if I could have got the battery and air intake pipes out but not doing that.

So plan B is to get some Wynn's EGR cleaner tomorrow which you spray into the air intake. Anyone had any experience with this stuff? http://www.halfords....e-cleaner-150ml

For Haynes manual you need Haynes Book: 4807
Displays a Mk2 on the cover but shows the facelift model on the inside, bought mine back in 2010 its been a God send in assisting though out the guides.


Bought my Haynes Manual the day after I bought my car in 2010 and it's saved me a few bob

I've been read up some more on the cleaning of the EGR Valve - not much out there. But if I do manage it I'll sort out a How To Guide

I've heard about the 2.0TDCi throwing up the error codes and don't want to go through the hassle of getting it mapped out of the ECU.

I regularly (12 months or so) used to remove the EGR Valve from my Laguna which was simple to do but now this engine is a nightmare to get to. Did think about squirting some cleaner into the top of the EGR but with seeing the crap that can come out I don't fancy that floating around the engine!!!

No really guides around for the 2.0TDCi either which isn't helpful lol

Posted by jbeer on 05 January 2015 - 09:54 PM

You need it on the pads that go around the bolt holes otherwise water can leak through which eventually it does you wont notice at first to check remove the plastic cover that hides the bolts to the spoiler and attatch some tissue paper to the inside with a bit of tape after heavy rain pop it off if theres a leak you'll know most on here have done it anyway seal it as those pads when they get too wet just leak


I add silicone around my bolts to prevent any leaking

Hi Ed,

I believe that paint warranty checks have to be carried out by a main dealer as part of your service and stamped in your service book.

Hi and welcome,

Just to add my opinion as well, I have a 2009 2.0 TDCI which I've owned from 6 months old with 6k on the clock, it's now got 57k and not had any issues at all with the engine, returns decent mpg around town at about 47mpg going upwards on motorway driving.

Just my thoughts
