Drilled Airbox's..

16 December 2012 - 04:04 PM

Has anyone drilled their airbox on their focus? I've seen it done loads on other forums, but not on fords!

I don't see any performance gains...only a bit more of a chav noise!

Broken Car...

08 August 2012 - 08:54 PM

The love of my life has just broken.

Whilst turning left earlier, then front of the car clunked like it was testing the abs. I thought it was strange, rest of the journey was fine though.

Just driven it now, when I go round corners at 25mph+ there's a mechanical noise coming from the bonnet area.

It sounds like metal clanging, similar to when you do an emergency stop and the abs kicks in, or the traction control.

When I turn esp off, the fault stops. When I turn it back on the noise starts on the next corner and stops when I straihhten the wheel.

Ive just had 2 new tyres put on the back 2 days ago, could they have knocked something? Even though there were no symptoms on days 1 or 2?

Anyone had thos before or able to help?

I have 3 months until the car is 3 years old so just in warranty.

Shall I take it ford or tyre fitters first?


12V Sockets

This may well have been covered before...

When i lock my car, do the 12v's still have power or is the power to them shut off?

Is the best way of checking to plug something in and go back an hour later and look?

Thanks Gurus

Does anyone have a DVD screen type stereo? if so, what make model etc.

Are they worth it? Pricey?

And yes I know I can't watch DVDs whilst driving...!

Exhaust Tips

26 July 2012 - 09:13 AM

Me again again.

I've just removed (most) the grub from my exhaust. Autosol rocks.

I've also seen that my exhaust tip is just a tip that's tied on. I don't know what I was expecting...

What options are there for changing these?
