They're all different tbh, 1.6 petrol is lighter than 1.6tdci, age and mileage will affect it as well.  I can't think how you could measure it though. 


I'm currently trying to deal with the JC myself, so I can empathise there! <_<

can only be a few pounds surely

As said if there was a real way to measure how much force is required for any car everyone would be different, a new clutch system and hydraulics would be very light and easy, and old worn one heavy and harder to push.


But to be fair if you have leg pain why wouldn't you have an automatic as it would put less stress on your leg.


I broke my ankle a few years ago and some days still wish I had bought an automatic when it gives me some pain. Obviously a personal choice but for health sod MPG or any other reasons for not wanting an automatic.

ive had 2 automatics in the past and the gear boxes went on both ,so i dont really like them.

i find the clutch fairly easy to push in.its more when im walking that gives me chronic pain.

my car is an 09 1600 facelift titanium

I asked about this at ford and they never renew the fluid foamy at the top suggests water in the system so it may need to be redrained again or there's a lot of air got into the system from memory you refill start the engine and turn from full lock to full lock a few times recheck fluid level and then poo the lid on

man you must be desperate for better speakers!


i googled it and found this thread: http://www.focusstoc.com/forums/topic/119224-removing-rear-interior-panels/ 

if you cant see it let me know and i will paste the details on here.

sod it i'll do it no


There are 2 fixings behind the 'B' pillar seat belt adjuster another behind the rear seat back pivot and one more at the rear, then it just pulls off.

Trouble is, the rest of the trim around the window needs to come off first or it becomes rather difficult.

the seat belt adjuster has a small cover at the top that reveals 2 screws, mind you don't drop them.

Also you won't see the screws if the belt adjuster is at it's highest position as this will cover the screws

The trim at the top has three screws under the long cover that hides the curtain airbag.

The trim at the rear that the parcel shelf sits on has 2 torx screws underneath. 

no wonder he spends all his money on the car lol
