Really Loud Ticking Noise In Engine????

10 July 2013 - 05:42 PM

Hi all 


My focus has developed a really loud clicking/ticking noise in the engine. It gets louder if you accelerate but never goes away even on tick over. 


had something changed that's near front of the engine that's connected to the auxiliary belt (don't ask me what its call cos i don't know lol ) 


anyway that didn't work.


so the garage have suggested it may be the air con clutch?? However the noise stays regardless of whether the air con is on or off. 

Or it could be some other clutch drive connected to the auxiliary belt. 


Has anyone else had this problem before?? 


Thank you :)

What Size Brake Disks?

10 April 2013 - 06:04 PM

Rang to find out how much my brake disks were going to cost and i was told there are two sizes listed for my car. 

So without having to go outside in the cold, could somebody please tell me what size mine might be :) 


She's a 2007 LX model :) 


Many thanks 


p.s should i change the brake pads at the same time? 

My New Car In Its Raw State

04 April 2013 - 02:18 PM

Here's my new focus....in standard form and looking a bit tired. 


Have booked a valeter to come next week to give her the full works so she should be gleaming on Tues hopefully  :D

(would normally do it myself but my backs not been too good so don't want to aggravate it ) 


Couple of questions tho.........


1. The steering feels really heavy..........power steering fluid???

2. The bite point on the clutch is really high.... Is that normal for a focus or could it need the cable re-adjusting? 



Thank you  :D




Hello There :)

Hi all :) 


Just thought i'd introduce myself  :)


I'm Michelle, I'm 30 years young  ;) Have been a ford owner for about 6 years now, having owned a Galaxy. 

We still have the trusty Galaxy but it has now been converted into a dog unit for work purposes, so i find myself having bought a 2007 plate Focus  :D


I did a few mods here and there to the Gal, and attended Ford Fair 2011 with her, so now its time to get modding with the Focus  :D  :D


Here's a pic of the Gal when she looked good
