Focus Mk2 Wheel Bearing

05 June 2013 - 01:35 PM


One of my front wheel bearings is starting to go on my mk2 focus so I was wondering how hard they are to change. Has anyone changed one before?

I’ve been trying to source a bearing but all I can find is the full hub kit, I’m guessing that I’ll have to replace the entire hub. Do the hubs need a press to be taken out and put back in?

And should I replace both sides or just the broken one?




Focus Mk2 1.6 Tdci Straight Down Pipe

12 January 2013 - 07:35 PM

I've been looking into getting the dpf removed and it mapped out, leaving the original case in place so it's looks stock. Has anyone had any experience with this? Some people are saying its an mot failed to remove but from what I've been reading from vosa only petrols need a full emissions test, diesel only have a smoke test. So I've been thinking I could just put a straight downpipe in, removing the cat and dpf. Before I do this does anybody know if it would it be an mot failure?


Lacking Power And Stalling (Includes Error Codes)

19 July 2012 - 02:11 PM

I have a focus 1.6 TDCI 2006 (97k miles) which has been lacking power and stalling when I go to set off, no lights are coming up on the dash but I’m getting the following codes.:

P1402 – Exhaust Gas Recirculation Metering Orifice Restricted
P0299 – Turbocharger A Underboost Condition
P193B – Throttle/Pedal Signal
P1936 – Clutch Switch/Sensor Signal

I’ve taken the EGR valve off but it wasn’t clogged, just had a thin coating of soot on it. The 1st 2 codes keep coming up after I clear them, the last 2 have only come up this once. Does anyone know what could be causing this and advice on fixing it?
