Electrode Gap On 1.6 Engine

28 January 2013 - 01:27 PM

Hi there,

I'm about to replace the spark plus in the car. What does Ford recommend the gap to be at with the new plugs? I'm getting conflicting information. Some are saying 1.3mm, others 1.0mm. Some are saying originally Ford made them originally to 1.3mm but this caused the coil pack to go faulty. Ford then solved the problem by making the 1.0mm.

So which is true? Do the original Ford Motocraft spark plugs come with a gap of 1.0mm or 1.3mm? The NGK's is was about to buy come with 1.3mm?


08 Ford Focus Style Armrest

Hi there,

I'm after a centre console armrest for my 2008 Focus Style. The car came without one which I guess is standard spec.

I have found one on eBay, however, the colour of the plastic looks different to mine. Link

Mine is more like this colour: Posted Image

Any idea where I could get one despite eBay. I tried a few local scrappies, but all they had in where LX's and Style's!

Was there two colours on the interior? I believe there are also newer type centre consoles in the Zetec 2.5, but that has the 12v cigarette terminal in the console itself, is that easy to re-route?
