Where To Go To Get A Leak Repaired?

30 April 2014 - 09:25 PM

I have a leak in my focus which I have now narrowed down to probably being either a windscreen leak or bulkhead. I was told by someone that taking it to a generic garage would not be the best thing to do, is this true? Can you recommend me somewhere better to take it so that I can finally stop my footwell getting damp!


Thank you :)

Leak :(

24 April 2014 - 09:08 PM

Hey guys,


So I noticed a couple of weeks back that the driver's foot-well carpet was wet. I pulled back the carpet to find a pool of water. The insulation stuck to the carpet was soaked and the white insulation under the pedals was also soaked. It took me a week to dry with leaving the doors open and using a hair dryer. I disinfected all the insulation to prevent further mould.


However I now have more water and am not totally sure where it's coming from. I am quite sure it is coming from the outside of the car, as it seems to be wetter after it has rained, but can't be 100%.


The water seems to be coming from under the white insulation that lies under the pedals, but I obviously can't see right under it as the insulation only pulls up so far.


Any ideas?


I am looking to take it for the windscreen to be looked at. I was told to take it to a windscreen and sunroof specialist as they will have more specific knowledge of where to look to find the leak. I don't want to take it to a garage and it be there for days costing me loads of money. I can't seem to find any windscreen or sunroof specialists around Leicester though.


Any help would be most appreciated. The car is a 2006 Focus 1.8 TDCI MK2.

6000 Cd Replacement Help

02 April 2014 - 04:57 PM

Hi guys,

I am looking to replace my 6000 CD with this double din unit http://www.caraudioc...1bt_p-31188.htm

I am a complete beginner and don't trust myself to mess with the electrics on my car so would anyone be generous enough to give me a hand if you live near to  wigston in Leicester?


Also could someone direct me to which cables and such I need to buy so that it will work with the steering wheel controls?
