How to change the focus passenger door window regulator

29 May 2009 - 07:40 AM

Hello Guys,

As per the title, is this a tricky task or quite simple?

I'm keen to get the part and get stuck in but if the glass has to come out and its a real muck around i might leave it for a garage.

Does anyone have any instructions or knows where they can be found?

Weird throttle problem 1.8 TDCi

16 March 2009 - 10:01 PM

Hello, hopefully someone can help to diagnose my problem.

Seems like the throttle is sticking, here's an example of what happens:

In slow moving traffic (1st gear), raise the revs to for example 2000RPM then let the throttle pedal come back but it doesnt - it keeps going at 2000RPM........until i dip the clutch then the revs return to idle (900RPM).

Seems really weird to me, its a little bit intermittent as well, and only happens in 1st gear and low speeds - engine seems to run a bit rough at that point as well until back to idle & then its fine.


Focus 1.8TDCi servicing, oil type

19 February 2009 - 02:00 PM

Hi Guys/Gals,

I'm planning to service my 2003 Focus 1.8TDCi in the next couple of days, when in Halfords looking for oil the best they have is Mobil 1 0w-40 Supersyn turbo diesel oil, I know that Ford recommend 5W-30 semi synthetic but i've always used Mobil oil and i'm sure that the Mobil oil is a better grade of oil anyway.

Can anyone see any issues with using it?
