Mine doesnt click. to test it just turn it on and put your hand on the windscreen after 5-10 mins and it should feel slightly warm,

I would do it myself next time, all you need is a Jack (and stands), a torx set and a 1/4" socket set to change the oil and all filters and you could do it all in an hour if you get used to it

#515087 New Member- Old Problem! Engine Malfunction Light

Posted by IINexusII on 23 August 2015 - 08:00 PM

first of all i wouldnt recommend running a diesel car that low, it will not help the fuel system, if its a one off then fine but i always like to fill up when i have around 80-100 mile of range left.


secondly you will need to plug in a code reader such as a modified ELM cable such as this:  http://www.ebay.co.u...=item2355b7bd9c


and the ForScan software that can read all the codes from each module in the car: http://forscan.org/download.html

Posted by IINexusII on 21 August 2015 - 10:21 AM

A5 is ok i believe, as long as it meets Fords WSS-M2C913-C or WSS-M2C913-D specification


i used the magnatec professional A5 previously which was WSS-M2C913-D

#511611 Ford Focus 2006 Interior Grab Handle & Aux Or Usb.

Posted by IINexusII on 12 August 2015 - 02:50 PM

Will I need any additional cables, or modify any of the cables, or is it just a plug and play matter?

(sorry about all the questions, don't have the knowledge yet, as it's my first car)


the radio itself will work plug and play.


to get aux you will need the ford aux connector to a 3.5mm jack, like this: http://www.ebay.co.u...=item5d4d2261d2

#511354 Focus 1.8 Turbo Diesel Black Smoke

Posted by IINexusII on 11 August 2015 - 06:11 PM

blank off the EGR, replace the fuel filter, check for split intercooler hoses (especially the 90 degree one to the left of the EGR valve). hopefully doing this it will be reduced, youre never going to get 100% smoke free because when you put your foot down you will inevatibly get some smoke

#510777 Air Filter Assembly Differences Between A Mk2 And Mk2.5 On A 1.6 Ti-but

Posted by IINexusII on 10 August 2015 - 08:22 AM

they changed the filter design in all focus cars from after 2007, around the time you mentioned to the new cylinder shape filter.


the old style gets the cold air from a gap in the passenger side wheel arch whereas the cylinder shape gets the air directly from the front grill area

#509678 Installing Mk2.5 Stereo

Posted by IINexusII on 06 August 2015 - 12:58 PM

thanks, i ended up breaking off the rear duck clips and sticking it on with double sided tape, held really well.


i seem to have blown the rear speakers or something as i instaled the head unit though (android).. reinstalled the original sony square one and didnt seem to play out the rear anymore aswell. Other than that everything else runs fine :)






thanks for all your help guys
