Reverse Light Switch

12 March 2014 - 05:26 PM

Hi, the reversing lamp on my mk 2 focus 1.6 has stopped working. I've tried replacing the bulb but this hasn't fixed it so i assume the switch must be faulty. Were abouts is the switch located on the gearbox, how hard is it to get to as the battery and airbox etc sit above the gearbox? Any help would be great.

Currently looking at replacing the tyres on my mk 2 Focus zetec as it has budgets all round at the moment and they don't inspire much confidence grip wise. What tyres were originally spec'd for the car when it was new? and can anyone reccomend a good set tyres for all round driving conditions.]



Mk6 1.4 Duratec Loosing Coolant

04 January 2014 - 11:00 PM

Hi, my girlfriends 1.4 fiesta is losing coolant, initially i suspected it could be head gasket failure as there was some brown  gunk around the oil filler, however it dosen't have any other symptoms; it never overheats and theres no white smoke coming from the exhaust. Any common issues with this engine that may be causing this?



Mk2 Focus Tailgate Rattle

27 December 2013 - 07:11 PM

Hey everyone, i have a mk2 Focus with a rattly tailgate when going over a rough surface. It can be cured by putting tape around the striker plate for the catch but this wears away over time. Is there a permanent cure fo the problem?



Which Diesel Engine

12 July 2013 - 09:13 PM

I currently have a 1.6 petrol mk2 Focus which i like alot, however a potential new job will mean that my mileage could increase drastically so now i'm considering getting a diesel. I'd like to stick with a Focus mk2/2.5 but not sure which engine to go for as there seems to be 3 different units used 1.6,1.8 and 2.0. Which is the pick of the bunch in terms of reliability and fuel economy.
