Boot Stuck Shut!

21 January 2014 - 02:54 PM

I recently posted about my faulty boot lock which has been making some odd noises and only working intermittently. Well it's finally given up, you can hear it trying to work and a loud grinding/clicking noise but it's as though it isn't quite catching the locking mechanism. I need to remove it in order to fit a new one but the boot is closed and locked, meaning I can't get to the 3 release bolts. Does anyone know another way into the lock? I'll just have to snap the trim off if it comes down to it and find another from somewhere I guess.

Boot Locking Mechanism :(

21 January 2014 - 11:07 AM

Hi all. Recently my boot locking mechanism started making a terrible noise when using the remote fob or the touch button on the boot, and its finally given up opening all together. I've taken it out and it needs replacing with the item below. I was just wondering if it would need activating by Ford before it would work with my remote key fob?

Oh and it's a Mk2.5 2008 Focus if that has any bearing?

Thanks in advance


Hid Upgrade??

04 April 2013 - 06:28 PM

I've been doing a few different upgrades and modifications to the car and most recently have been looking at HID kits on the Internet.

Just wondering if anyone has any experience of fitting/using a HID upgrade kit and how much I should be looking at paying for one?

Oh and its an 08 plate focus Zetec mk2.5

Air Vent Trims!

11 March 2013 - 06:14 PM

Hi all, does anyone know how to remove the little plastic silver surrounds from the air vents? There are 4 in total and I need to remove them as I'm looking to wrap them in black.

The car is an 08 reg focus Zetec (facelift)

Thanks in advance! If left to my own devices i'd end up snapping them :/

Plasti Dip

10 March 2013 - 11:00 AM

Hi, I've been looking at plasti dip for a while now as a cheap way to customise the car a bit. It's totally removable too so if it looks terrible or I get bored I can pull it off. Been looking at black for the alloys but until that comes back into stock I have a can of white to play about with. Just wondered if anyone had any ideas of what I could coat? Wing mirrors, one of the alloys to see what the white would look like, ST stripes on the bonnet etc?

Any help would be appreciated, I drive a panther black Focus Mk2 facelift model :)
