Any Tools/tips On Changing The Oil Filter

09 February 2010 - 08:27 PM

Just changed the oil on my Focus for the first time but did a bit of a schoolboy error and didn't look at the access to the filter before I'd drained the oil. The tool I've used on my previous cars wouldn't fit in the small gap around the filter so I've had to leave the old one in place.

Anyone got any tips or know any good tools for removing the filter..........

Thatcham approved alarm/immobiliser?

18 August 2009 - 12:03 PM

Getting insurance quotes through some price comparison sites and am being asked all kinds of highly technical questions!

Does my model have a Thatcham approved alarm system? I've tried the owners handbook and Fords site but not come up with anything.

Any clues.................?

Service interval for 1.6 petrol ('07)

02 June 2009 - 04:38 PM

I've just bought an '07 1.6 duratec with 60,000 miles on it.

It's been serviced regularly - the most recent being March '09 at 52k miles.

I've looked all through the owners handbook and can't find the service interval (I'm guessing 12.5k miles but would like it clarified).

Can anyone enlighten me please......................?
