Pardon my ignorance is there a new Ford Focus Mk3.5 or is it
only the ST Ford Focus that has the new type large grill? Like the Fiesta.


100 Per Hour Labour, I Must Be Out Of Touch?

21 April 2013 - 09:47 AM

Just been to a chain of Autocentres and being given a bill of £290 to change a
clutch master cylinder, parts cost £70 and the rest is labour so £100 plus
labour per hour (based on 2 hours).  Having had three Ford Focus's for the past six years I have
never had any repair’s or fault’s so I’m so out of touch with repair cost's, my
only contact with garages is to have the service and mot.  Is it me or does this seem very expensive.......

Hi I'm After Some Pics Of Mod Fitted Push Start Button Focus Mk2.5

03 April 2013 - 08:35 PM

Hi All


I know this has been covered before but I'm looking some pictures of mod fitted Push Start Button for the focus Mk2.5. I've just brought one and looking for the best place to put it. I have look through old posts and I know people think they are a waste of time, but that didn't stop me from fitting a reverse camera when I had parking sensors already fitted LOL.


I would like it in a place that you can see it, not tucked away. Also can you still start your car via the key? I believe the new push start switch is wired in parallel so you can use either.

Ford Focus 2008 Hatchback Steering Column Within The Foot-Well

24 August 2012 - 05:46 PM


I have a Ford Focus 2008 hatchback the Mk3 has anyone else notice that the steering column inside the car just above the foot-well is exposed and catches my feet when turning and using the clutch or the brake. I have been to Ford today to see if there is a cover missing off the shaft and it is how it’s supposed to be. I also checked the same shape focus on the forecourt and it was also exposed. I have had to change the driver side mat as the steering column was moving the mat but now I have put a shorter mat it now catch the end of my shoes. I don’t have feet like flippers only size 8 so it’s not that. Is it just me or as anyone else notice this?
