Problem Focus

17 March 2014 - 07:40 PM

my mums focus has been nothing but problem with the EML.


first it was the ti-VCT solenoid that was faulty, replaces and sorted, its had 3 coil packs, and 2 broken wires at the coil pack plug and a 3rd today.


the AA has done a temp repair but really need the wiring repaired. is there a link lead/ repair kit available from ford for the coil pack plug? i only ask as my dad is going to ford to see if anything is available but dont want to be fobbed off if something is available.

1.6 Tivct Cam Belt

02 November 2013 - 01:39 PM

the cam belt on my mums 55 reg focus is due in 2 months. ford have said its every 8 years or 100,000 miles.


Benfield Ford on Kirkstall Road have quoted £332 and there other branch on York Road have quoted £420. the York Road dealer gave me a breakdown, they said it would need the cam belt kit, the aux and a/c belts, a cam cover gasket, and a crank pulley bolt.

while its in bits is there anything else that could do with changing like the water pump or other pulleys?


is there any where in Leeds that you guy could recommend where i can get it done cheaper? ill be supplying the parts for the cam belt and i just want it fitting

Benfield Ford Offers?!

29 August 2013 - 08:31 PM

my dad got a phone call from benfield asking if we had got there leaflets about there 'offers' they have on there cars. nothing with there logo on the envelope has dropped through the letter box. anyhow we've got an appointment with them on saturday at 10am.


so curious about there 'offers' i had a look at there website, no mention of any offers. anyone else had any experience with what they have possibly have to offer us. bear in mind that my mum is a registered disabled but carnt have motability car, but we do get out car tax free.

Adaptive Headlights

one of the bulbs went on my mums focus, so i remove the headlight and see a spare unused connector, is that the connector for adaptive headlights? 




i havent noticed it on my uncles focus which is a few months newer than my mums
