12V Socket No Longer Working Also Lack Of Fuses?

13 November 2012 - 09:54 PM

Been away for some time, very committed at work at the moment all i can say is Remembrance Day and Syria. Syria being the big one there.

Anyhow got in my car this morning, nothing from my 16v Socket (where push start usually is) then i checked the one in the armrest... Nothing there.

I assume its the fuse? Upon opening the Fuse box... Which is the 16v socket and what rating is it? They're labelled 'F' i think i can remember. Also... I have ALOT of empty spaces in my fuse box, could i be missing some essential features in my car or is there suppose to be gaps?

Hope alls well with you guys, will try get back active soon.


Couple Of Questions..

21 August 2012 - 01:07 AM

Somethings that are currently bugging me so id appreciate any help with them please.

Is it possible to have fitted my MTech cosmos bulbs upside down or something? They seem to be aimed at the floor when i drive even though the light up the road somewhat, My old man changed my bulbs for me and now it just seems like they rant a good or something? Is it just me.

How do you remove the steering wheel trim (the middle bit on at the bottom of the wheel) ... I know the left and right clip up and out but I'm struggling getting the bottom one off a I'm scared id break it. Is there an easy way? do i need remove something first?

I want to carbon wrap the centre piece that runs from around the gear stick to the arm rest by the cup holders bit. How do i remove this?

Should i debadge the rear of my car?

Have I Lost Out?

13 August 2012 - 11:00 AM

Hi guys,

So when i bought my Focus from a well known dealer, i asked them about the service history and they told me the car had it all.
So after eventual time, my V5 came through the door, then the MOT filtered through the door, But now i find myself without any proof of previous services?

I have contacted the dealership and because its been 2 months since i purchased from them, they can't do much at all to help they said.

So i question if there was really a service history, is there anyway at all i can obtain or find out this information?\

Also with the dealer i purchased 2 Years cover on servicing and MOT, when is the best time to utilise the service's? When do i book it in with them. Every 3 Months?

It was MOT in May, so do i book it in soon for a service?

Changing Wing Mirror Bulbs?

10 July 2012 - 09:01 AM

Hi guys just a very quick one, Im after changing my bulbs in the wing mirrors to my silva tec ones. However I'm unsure which way to go about this?

Iv read somewhere tilt the mirror full forward then screwdriver in back and 'pop it out' However i kinda snapped a tiny bit plastic doing this stupidly... Nothings broke i think i caught end of something.

Can i just pop out the clear cluster part or do i need to take the whole thing apart?
