Would Anyone Be Interested In A Guide For Using Their Android Phone/tablet With A Bluet...

19 November 2012 - 02:49 PM

I've been using an app called Torque for a while now and wasn't sure if it was common knowledge around these parts. I originally set it up to diagnose some engine issues (turned out to be fuel contamination in the end) but along the way found this app and now use it everyday for displaying extra info about the car while I'm driving, using my phone as a display. Noticed that some people have used a USB OBD2 adapter with a russian program called FF2, this uses the ELM327 interface too.

Lots of info and screenshots below about all the different features:


You can buy the bluetooth adapters all over the place, I got mine from ebay. I can't remember the particular seller where I got mine from, just make sure it is v1.5 onwards e.g. http://www.ebay.co.u...=item1c2adfb8e5

You can get mini versions but mine is an original full size one and fits in the OBD2 port in my focus mk2 24/7 and I never knock it.

If you already have an android phone and have it mounted in the car when you are driving, its a no-brainer.

Will put pics, more details, app config stuff etc if anybody is interested :)

Driver Side Front Foglight Smashed :(

15 November 2012 - 12:08 PM

Hi all,

So walking out to my car this morning and noticed that the glass lens of my driver side front foglight has smashed. Has this happened to anyone else (through driving) or should I start shooting the neighbourhood kids on site?

Funnily enough the blub still works so the actual unit itself must be fine. Would I be able to just replace the lens or would it be the whole lot? In either case what would be the part I should be looking for?


Ford Focus Mk2 Courtesy Light, Boot Light And Glove Box Light Upgrade

12 November 2012 - 10:53 AM

Hi all,

First post so be kind :)

Been looking around at all the different touches that people have been making to their Focus's and seeing how good they looked decided I needed to have a go at some of them! Going to start off by sorting out the interior lighting. Would really appreciate some pointers on a couple of things..

Boot light - I've ordered these LEDs to replace the poor excuse for a bootlight, just wanted to double check they the right ones? Planning on using Lenny's excellent guide to add an extra bootlight.

Courtesy light - Mine being a lowly Sport spec I only get the single courtesy light (not the one with the map lights) and was wondering if I would be able to replace it with this? What LEDs would I need to replace each one with? Also any pointers as to how to go about it would really appreciate it.

Glove box - Again just wondering which LED I would need to replace it with and any tips on how to go about it?

Thanks for reading
