FORD GALAXY

04 January 2010 - 06:45 PM

I am thinking of selling my Ford Focus to buy a Ford galaxy and can not find the length of the load
area from behind the front seats to the rear back door,they only show the volume area.

Can anybody tell me the length please with all the rear seats removed it will be a 2001 model.

Also is it easy to remove the rear 5 seats and take out of these cars.

Thanks for any help.

clutch cable adjustment ?

13 April 2009 - 03:44 PM

I have a 2001 Zetec 1.6 Focus.

Have just removed the plastic clutch box cover to try and find an oil leak but found two clutch cables and adjusters ?

I always believed that the car had a hydraulic clutch but I noticed that there are two cables
entering the box both with adjusters connected to two lever arms.

As there is no mention in the Haynes manual about adjustment can anybody help as how these two cables are adjusted.

lower suspension arm balljoints

05 April 2009 - 06:12 PM

Is it possible to buy just the balljoints for the lower suspension arms (wishbone).

They used to sell them for replacement on Mondeos but I wondered if it was possible to get them from Ford for the Focus,they used to come with three new nuts and bolts for fitting after drilling out old rivets in the arm.

Can anybody help or is it new complete arms which never seem the same quality and seem to last about a couple of years before the balljoint rubbers go again.

Yet another mot failure.

CENTRAL LOCKING

26 February 2009 - 02:59 PM

I have a 2001 Zetec Focus 1.6.

When I lock the car on double locking I get the standard two flashes from the indicator lights and when I unlocking the car I get one flash from the indicator lights.

I have just noticed that the now when unlocking the car the lights are not flashing the one unlock flash.

They are still ok when locking the car and still showing two flashes on double locking ?

All the doors and boot are locking and unlocking ok.

Can anybody tell me why the lights have stopped flashing on unlocking.

Many thanks.
