#429599 1.8 Tdci 2010 Focus, Turbo Problem

Posted by IINexusII on 19 November 2014 - 10:24 AM

the dealers will charge you over 100 for a filter replacement. the filter should cost around £20 for the genuine ford one and it can be done in less than half an hour so i would go to a cheaper garage to get it replaced or change it yourself.


make sure that you or the garage fills the filter housing to the brim with diesel and you shouldnt have any issues starting it up

Ford dont recommend using oil flushing additives, 


There is a magnetic sump bolt which you can get that can collect metal bits as the oil is flowing around, and it will come out with the old oil on an oil change, something i use myself and does pick up alot of tiny fragments

#403075 Fuel Leak From Here..

Posted by IINexusII on 29 August 2014 - 03:50 PM

yes that is the leak off pipe, try replacing the little O ring that seals it into the injector first, its a 50p part from ford. they will be very tiny green rubber rings

oil is correct. ford recommend not to do a flush (in the owners manual). youll probably need another 1ltr bottle as it will take abit over 5l to refill

i think this is the wheel bearing for your car but youll need to verify that. not too bad @ http://www.eurocarpa...c2620c16


youll need a hydraulic press to remove the old & fit the new
