Hole Drilled In Grille Surround

25 March 2015 - 05:40 PM

Hi all,

Noticed something on my grille surround today (chrome part, mk2 Focus). Took a closer look and it seems someone has tried to drill a hole, almost dead centre below the Ford badge. Not sure why, surely too low to affect the bonnet lock etc. No other damage on the car!

Whir/whine Which Stops When Clutch Pedal Depressed

02 September 2014 - 07:43 PM

Got our second hand Focus a few weeks ago now, but one of my annoying habits is hearing things like rumbles and rattles etc. Today I just noticed a slight noise which stops when I press the clutch pedal down. Noise stops about half way down. Best way to describe it is its a little like an electric motor, or a whir/whine.

No problems on gears, don't feel shudder, no knocks etc..

Any ideas on likely cause and if its anything I need to worry about?

Car Vacuum Recommendations

07 July 2014 - 02:48 PM

Hi all,

Really need to pick up a vacuum for the car. My two boys (1 and 2) can make a right mess with crumbs, etc.

Any recommendations? As the wife says I'm tight fisted- so looking for sub £30/40 vac.

I've got a plug socket at front door, so doesn't have to be a 12v. Was looking at the Halfords 12v which was recommended by Auto Express a few years ago, but reviews were very different -either it's great or it picks up nothing!
