Egr Valve Cleaning

07 April 2014 - 01:47 PM

Hi guys,


Could anyone take a photo or point me in the right direction as to the steps of removing the EGR valve and cleaning it?


I will make a picture guide once i know how to do this.


My EML keeps clocking on every few days relating to: Exhaust Gas Recirculation Control Module - Fault Code.


Presuming that is meaning a blocked / faulty EGR Valve.


Auto Wipers

23 January 2014 - 10:39 AM

Hi guys,


Recently i seem to be having an issue with my Auto Wipers.


When selecting the first setting UP on the wiper stalk and having the frequency of wipe set to either 1 or 2 from the bottom (Bottom being shortest) i have noticed it sometimes fails to wipe fast enough.


At times the screen can nearly become completely streamed of water making it hard to see and you have to manually activate the wipers to clear it. Also sometimes it will stay on intermittent when clearly it should be on fast.


Never use to have this problem, only started seeing it recently. Maybe the cold has something to do with it?


Sometimes it works perfect and switches fast to slow etc no problems.



Digital Climate Control - Fitting Possible?

20 December 2013 - 04:33 PM

Hi Guys,


Just wondering if its possible to replace the manual air control dials to the digital version with climate control? I have aircon and presumably the climate back as i have the front heated window and heated mirrors and washer jets.


Would this be possible or be alot of work?

12V Socket Removal

20 December 2013 - 02:44 PM

The other day my girlfriends keys fell into the socket making it pop. Checked the fuse and that seems fine yet no power at socket end so presuming its blown it.


How easy is it to replace the socket as i use it quite often for charging my ipod and the phone while using google maps.





Exhaust Gas Recirculation Control Module Fault

Exhaust Gas Recirculation Control Module fault


As the title says getting that fault that pops up on my focus, doesn't cause any misfire or any problems. I can clear the fault and it wont happen again for ages until i give it a boot (which probably happens maybe one in 10 times).


Any ideas as to what and why its flagging up?
