Focus Mk1.5 Electric Windows?

24 February 2013 - 10:33 AM

Ok so I haven't posted on here for quite a while but I'm in need of some advice, hopefully someone can help.
My driver side window recently decided to stop working as it should, so I took the door card off, to be greeted by what used to be the window motor cable, now tangled up into a massive knot. The cable itself is now useless due to the knots and creases etc, but I have found two options for repairing it; either a complete new assembly (motor and cables all pre-assembled), or a cable repair kit for repairing the existing components. So has anyone had any experience with these kits? It seems like the way to go as it is massively cheaper, but I am unsure to difficulty and how to actually fit it?
Any help or suggestions or thoughts greatly appreciated as always, thanks in advance!

Help Please!

01 December 2012 - 01:24 PM

Hi all, I'm after some urgent advice asap, hope someone can help me!
I have a mk1.5 focus (02 plate) 1.6 petrol, and I need to replace the water pump. I have the part but have been told by one person that I need to remove the cam timing belt to replace the pump, and by another person that I don't have to remove the belt.
I need to know for definite before I start as I don't have any of the 'ford special tools' to do the timing, so I can do it myself if I don't need to remove the belt!
Any suggestions greatly appreciated before I start pulling it to bits!
Thanks in advance,

Wheel Nuts?

18 June 2012 - 07:51 PM

Hi all!
After some advice again, hope someone can help!
I'm looking for a complete set of wheel nuts for my focus, as the ones that are on it at the moment aren't complete, over time some have been stolen and replaced with general hollow nuts etc etc. I have found a few different sets, but what I need to know is where i'd find the size and offset etc that I need?
If it makes any difference, I have standard ford alloys on, I saw somewhere that some aftermarket wheels require different nuts.
Anyway, hopefully someone can help me!
Thanks in advance!

Air Con Gas?

11 June 2012 - 04:49 PM

Hi all,
I'm getting my air con re-gassed tomorrow, but the person doing it needs to know how much it takes in grams. I have no idea what it is or where I can find it as I haven't had it done before, so I'm hoping someone can help!
Car details are as follows:
2002 focus 1.6 petrol zetec silver special eds.
If anyone knows the details I would be very grateful!

Headlight Conversion Kits?

10 June 2012 - 10:29 AM

Hi, have been looking online at HID xenon conversion kits, but have hit a bit of a brick wall. I want them for my 2002 focus but am unsure how to go about it as the dipped and full beam lights are separate bulbs, so does this mean I would need two kits on each side? Also I have heard that the bulbs get very hot and wasn't sure if there was a risk of damaging the headlight body? Any information and advice on this would be great please!
Thanks, Dan
