Light Switch Leds

16 November 2012 - 06:24 PM

hi guys,

I noticed tonight that the front and rear foglight symbols on the light switch unit do/are not lighting up but now I cant remember if they ever did or if they should (although I'd imagine they would). Would somebody mind checking the next time they are in their car and see if these should light up? Would be much appreciated! its a 59 plate focus if that makes a difference.


Insurance And Minor Mods

14 November 2012 - 10:27 AM

Just a heads up for anyone with admiral insurance, I was reading forums about how admiral can sometimes be a tad over-zealous when it comes to not paying out due to undeclared modifications on things as trivial as car mats, mudflaps etc.

perhaps i was being paranoid but for my own peace of mind i just phoned them up to ask about mods i have planned namely mud flaps, sill plates and car mats (I know I would never have dreamt car mats counting as a mod but these rumours are all over other forums so thought I'd check).

Anyway, car mats are fine, mud flaps/sill plates count as an exterior mod but it only cost an additional £16.20. Ok I know thats a bit of a rip off really but I think for peace of mind its worth it, knowing you are completely covered. Just thought I'd post this up for 2 reasons: 1, incase anyone has fitted mud flaps and was worried telling their insurer incase they charge you something ridiculous and 2, for anyone (like me) who didnt realise these counted as mods. btw all these parts I have to fit are genuine ford)

I'd imagine the vast majority of insurers wouldn't care too much about these kind of things but admiral will charge for any little thing! I cant complain though as they usually are quite a bit cheaper than anyone else!

What do you guys make of this:


Makes my blood boil, yet another scam targeted at innocent motorists.

First Mot....... Pass!

01 October 2012 - 09:11 AM

Glad to report my car passed its first MoT this morning with one small advisory, tiny hole in the off-side CV gaitor but is not letting dirt in. One small dab of glue should do till it can be replaced. More chuffed to report that the inspector said he has never seen such a clean or well maintained car presented for an MoT, its not even up to my standards of what I'd call clean! Proud as punch! :D

Mondeo Oem Led Lighting

17 September 2012 - 02:19 PM

Hi guys,

Hope you dont mind me posting here, but I got no response in the focus forum so hope you guys can help...

My girlfriend's dad bought a mondeo (on my recommedation :wacko: ) last year and I really like the much more modern LED courtesy lighting in the front and back. Looks like photo attached.

Does anyone know if it would be possible to retrofit this light into the focus? Also, does anyone know how to look up the finis code for this so I can get a rough idea of price instead of embarrassing myself in at the dealer? I tried lots of different parts websites but trying to google ford led courtesy lights brings up a million hits for just the led bulbs you pop in the original light housing.
