Buying Cheap Mk2 Mud Flaps

14 November 2013 - 10:29 PM

So I was looking at these on ebay for under £15, but just noticed the two sets I was looking at seem to have slightly different shape fittings? The first pair seem slightly more trimmed..






Only thing that concerns me is the second set seem to have a pretty random selection of cars it apparently won't fit:

"ST / RS / ZETEC / TITANIUM / 1.8 Tdci 2006 / 1.6Tdci Ghia / ZX3"


Can anyone that's bought these before give me a heads up on if they're likely to be a bad fit or anything?



Mk2 Boot Light

09 November 2013 - 04:34 PM



I've had my car nearly a year now but in that time the boot light has never worked.


Finally got round to looking at it today, but when I removed the plastic lense cover (drivers side rear corner of the boot), there seems to be no fitting for the light underneath! This might just be a stupid question, but did all mk2 models have a light fitting wired to the boot?


My only other guess is that at some point the trim has been removed and the light fitting got knocked out of place - so before I start removing trim I just wanted to make sure there should actually be a fitting in there somewhere?


Thanks in advance!

Noise, Only When Clutch Fully Depressed?

22 December 2012 - 12:34 PM

Afternoon everyone,

New member, and just got my first Focus, so hoping I'm just being a bit paranoid here!

The car seems to run fine generally, but when I press the clutch pedal right down it seems to make a noise - I wouldn't describe it as a loud rattle or anything - but it is different from the engine note at idle with the clutch up? It only happens when the clutch is right down.

The clutch does feel quite high compared to my previous car, so I guess it's not a million miles away from replacement.

Apologies if I've described that a bit vaguely, I'll try and provide clarification if needed!

The car is a 2005 tdci, approx 77k miles.

Thanks in advance :)
