#434548 Focus Mk2 1.6 Brake Problem

Posted by Howard1471 on 06 December 2014 - 07:38 AM

Whilst I appreciate that you may get an answer from this thread as to what is causing the problem, can I suggest you just get this in a garage before there's a total failure which results in an injury or death.  You're talking about the braking system here. Not worth waiting around for.




#330576 New Mot Requirements ( Dpf And/or Catalysts )

Posted by Howard1471 on 08 February 2014 - 06:29 PM

I was informed when I recently took my car for it's MOT that as of 16th Feb 2014 the regulations have changed regarding DPFs and Catalysts.

 

Any car which is fitted with a Diesel Particulate Filter or Catalyst, as standard, when manufactured, must be fitted with said DPF and or Catalyst when tested.  If it is not fitted with the required item(s) it will be deemed to have failed the MOT.

 

I'm paraphrasing the official looking document my garage showed me.  I think everyone should be aware of the change.
