In Topic: Focus Mk2 Dash Removal.

Today, 03:57 PM

In the past I made a Dutch guide about retrofitting the storage compartment on top of the dashboard. I removed the complete dashboard to cut the hole for the compartment.

My guide contains a lot of pictures. It can be found on the Dutch Focus Forum:

The guide can be translated into English using Google Translate.

I use NGK TR5B-13 spark plugs for my 1.6 Duratec Focus MK2. My experience is that these spark plugs perform very well. I buy them from a shop in the UK for about £8,50 including P&P. Despite my low mileage I change the spark plugs every 2 years.

Another possibility will be the NGK PTR5A-13 Platinum spark plugs. These have a longer changing interval but are also more expensive.

In Topic: Mk2.5 Cold Air Feed

The biggest improvement would be a Focus MK2.5 RS air filter housing combined with a K&N 57S kit.


The Focus RS air filter housing has 2 cold air feed pipes instead of 1 and has a much larger air snorkel. There are only a few minor modifications needed to fit a Focus RS air filter housing to a "normal" Focus MK2/MK2.5. Combined with a 60 mm throttle body of a 2.3 Duratec and smooth silicone hose instead of the standard ribbed hose it will make a noticeable difference on a 2.0 Duratec.

Hi guys, 
I have enabled the ELMConfig a few gimmicks. 
Radio information and phone information in the onboard computer. 
My question is, can you get the names of the MP3 files to display in the onboard computer? 
My car is a Ford Focus RS MK2. 
regards Martin

The instrument cluster display does not show MP3 names. There is no possibility to change this.

I suppose it could technically be possible to show MP3 names on the display but for some reason the firmware of the instrument custer and/or radio does not support it.

The U1900 code refers to a CANbus communication fault. This code can be caused by a lot of things. Many cars do have this code and most times there is no actual problem. This code can also be generated by a diagnostic interface during diagnostics.



As long as there are no actual problems you can ignore this code.
