Has anyone ever seen one of these for sale, currently have an 06 plate LX and so didn't come with one when it was new, would love to fit one, so if you know where I can get one, how much and will it fit ?


Air Vent Removal

31 January 2009 - 07:00 PM

I have managed to break the air vent inside the car on my 06 plate focus, All the parts are ok although I need to re-assemble them back into the vent, is there anyway of removing the vent "pod" as there seems no clear way, it looks like it should just pop out.

Any help you can give me would be great


06 Plate Focus 1.6tdi turbo mounting bolt snapped

HI all

New onto the forum although have owned the focus since new, 06 plate 1.6 tdi 115bhp version, dropped the car into Platts of Marlow on Friday as the down pipe from the turbo to the intercooler was moving and causing it to rattle. Picked the car up tonight and the garage charged me 34 pence for the bolt and 112.50 to fit it, stating the warranty did not cover the snapped bolt - so a total bill of 129.77 just what I need before Christmas.

Now my concern is that ! this bolt is a part of the engine and holds on a vital part of the engine the turbo ! but I am told it's not covered - this to me seems madness, and not the service I recieve on my other car - an Audi A6 !

Any one else had problems of this sort - is it really worth me taking it up with Ford Customer service or am I wasting my time ??

Let me know as I could really do with my 129.77 back minus the 34p bolt !
