Any Ideas What This Is?

07 December 2012 - 10:44 PM

While lowering the gearbox and engine from the top mount to change the DMF and clutch, 2 of these appeared on top of the gear linkage.

I have no idea what they are, or where they came from, cant see that they are that important, look kinda like fuse holders maybe.

But be nice to know tho if anyone has any ideas

More Focus Tdci Problems

25 November 2012 - 01:31 PM

Just had the DMF, clutch, CSC, and master cylinder changed, been fine for a few days, till I come out from the Golf Club and the damned thing wont start.

5 minutes of trying she finally fires up. Gets half way home and the glow plug light starts flashing, and the power goes so I pull over and it dies. Wont start again.

After another 5-10 minutes its going again and gets all the way home. Shut it off, went back out and it starts fine, although i'm now reluctant to drive it.

Any ideas??

A Newb In Need

Someone help me please, i just changed the DMF, clutch and CSC in my 03 Focus TDCi, while bleeding the clutch, the master cylinder seal popped, making my footwell nice and wet :(

Bought a new one, had a snapped rod, swapped it and fitted it bled the clutch again till no air came through the slave, but clutch still really soft and not engaging. I've also noticed that the brake pedal is staying down slightly, so brake lights staying on, and feels really spongy.

Could they be related, do I need to bleed the brake system then the clutch, to fix it, or have I bought myself a dodgy slave cylinder and need to drop the gearbox off again?

First time I've done any major work on it, think it will be going to the garage from now on lol
