Retrofit St3 Xenon Projector Headlights

19 May 2015 - 03:09 PM

Hi all,


What is needed to retrofit the Xenon headlamps used in the Focus ST3? im not sure if any other models have them.


its the same headlamp as the one in this ebay link:




i would like to get HID's installed and i think they would look much nicer in a projector headlamp



Plastic Straw Sucked Into Intake

08 December 2014 - 01:44 PM

Yes, i was cleaning the EGR/Intake manifold with Wynns Diesel EGR Cleaner during lunch, i decided the use the plastic straw this time to try to get it towards the furthest cylinder, i even held the straw with my hand but momentarily lost contact as i wiggled the can around and the straw went straight into the intake. it did make clattering noises for a few seconds before i switched the engine off.


turned the engine back on and it made some knocking noises for a few seconds but then everything went back to normal. i let it idle (engine temp was already around 110c) for 10-20mins and it seems fine now, even while driving.


im hoping that it has just melted away inside the cylinder head but is there anything i should do? a couple of forums suggest sticking a vaccum cleaner on the end of the intake and sucking to see if anything comes out  

2008 1.8 Tdci Injectors In 2006 Focus

02 July 2014 - 08:44 AM

Hi, i have seen a list for the injectors on a 2008 Focus 1.8 TDCI with the 4m5q-9f593-ad ADQTL FC30 listed as the model code. i currently have 4m5q-9f593-ad ADQTL EE21 on the car.


I know the 2008 models have a 125hp from the engine and mine has 115, will a new ECU/wiring/programming be needed to upgrade to these injectors?


I will not need to re-code the injectors on my car as that was only for the pre-MK2 delphi injectors. so it should be a straight swap, im just not sure of the difference in injector codes that will mean more than just a straight change


Can anyone shed some light on this?
