2012 Ford Focus 1.6Tdci 6 Speed Manual Gearbox Oil ??

27 April 2015 - 06:28 PM

Hi Guys


Have searched all over to try and find what "Type/Specs" and quantity of oil I need to top up my

6 speed manual gearbox with, as I suspect it has a leak on it, with clunky changes


There is nothing stated in owners manual that came with car

or as to the location of filler and drain plugs, any help appreciated ??

2012 Ford Focus 1.6Tdci Oil Filter Change

17 April 2015 - 01:44 PM

Hi Guys


Im doing my first oil and filter change on above, as I dont want to wreck the 

engine at first startup, is there anything I can disconnect to stop injectors

working while cranking to allow oil pressure to build up ??

and location if possible where to look etc..


Once pressure is only would re connect and normal start !!


Thanks for any advice given


Focus Mk3.5 Built In Satnav Sync 2

Hi Guys


Thinking of part ex on my Mk3 to Mk3.5 which has Sync2 with Satnav, has anybody got info

if map updates will become available and how, reading under the bonnet its still running

on Wince 6.0 which is Windows based, can it be upgraded by Wince upgraded maps


Through a SD Card if fitted, and plenty of Satnav software on known sites to download if thats the case

or must it be a paid   Dealers update costing £####..


As I have tablets that run Satnav apps under Windows and Android..

Focus Mk3 Titanium Secret Test Mode

20 January 2015 - 11:38 AM

Hi Guys

I seen a video on you tube how to do this, it says hold down OK button on steering wheel
for 5 seconds, then press start button to go into accessory mode, then continue holding OK
button till test appears on screen, then release and you can then select tests by up/down buttons, i can get that far, but dont get guage sweep or led tests, am i doing something wrong

The video was on Yank Focus, do they mean mileage reset on right of our steering wheels
in U.K ?
