Bg244 - Now Available At Kwikfit!

17 September 2014 - 02:14 PM

If I know the people on this forum, I'd say


1) We like BG244

2) We don't goto KwikFit much.


So by luck, I found out KwikFit now sell all the BG products, including BG244 for £19.95 (cheaper than online)


You can walk in and pay/leave.

Focus Mk2.5 2.0 Tdci - Belt Or Chain?

18 August 2014 - 04:06 PM

Very quick question... is the 2.0 litre tdci (mk2.5 / 2008 - 211) a belt or chain setup?  It's the ford/peugeot engine... dw10 i think?



Mk2.5 - Flywheel Hell - Same Old Story??

11 August 2014 - 08:54 AM

So I've had a couple of other focus' and always managed to nurse the DMF's and not had any major problem besides a bit of vibration.


However, 18 months (and 50k) after this post....




I appear to now be in flywheel hell.


I just wondered if anything has changed from previous models - car has done 100k so it's due.  Vibration when idling (but only now and again), vibration through the clutch, rattling noise.  All points to dual mass flywheel right? Starter motor is fine so I hoped that would keep the cost down somewhat.


However, first ford main dealer has quoted £1480.    I knew it was going to be around a grand, but that seems a bit excessive.


Any thoughts?


Also tempted to buy the flywheel/clutch kit off ECP for £200 and have someone fit it - pros/cons/etc


Many thanks!



Focus >2008 Air Con Failed - Light On, No Click

24 April 2014 - 10:29 AM

My Air Con is dead.  I know it could just need re-gassing, but for various reasons I think its more than that, so just humour me - it doesn't need re-gassing....


I was in an accident over Christmas, and from reading various bits and bobs, some air con systems have safety cut offs - could it be that?


If not, anyone got any advice on where to start? I'm just about to check the fuses, but I'm fearing the worst really.


The button light illuminates, but no 'click' is heard.


Any ideas?

So my focus is back on the road again, and 2 days later this happens


(Advanced warning: it's not that exciting, but it **** me up a bit!)
