Poor Cold Start On 2008 1800 Tdci

21 February 2015 - 06:54 PM


Alternator packed on the car, which was replaced and now kicks out 14.4v rather than the 12v previously. Since this event the car is very difficult to start when cold, it was always on the turn of the key. I have since replaced all glow plugs, as they had a good supply voltage but thought they might have stopped working. Still no joy on the cold start.

Anyone got any ideas on this as it's driving me scatty! Engine flys round on the starter but just takes a hood few goes to get started.



2.5 Focus Steel Inner Door Panel Removal?

31 August 2014 - 04:58 PM


Can anyone lend assistance with the removal of the inner security panel on my 1800tdci, 58 plate? The electric window has dropped slightly and as such I need to get to it.
Apart from removing pop rivets etc, is there another way to get this off without dismantling the car?

Assistance would be gratefully appreciated....
