1.6 Tdci Downpipe

19 July 2013 - 08:43 PM

As anyone seen any where that sells a downpipe for the 1.6 TDCI (MK2.5)???


I'd like to remove the DPF without cutting out the back and re-welding.

Ford 6000 Radio Fitting Query

27 June 2013 - 08:08 PM

I upgraded to a Sony H/U in my 2008 Focus, so I sold my factory 6000 CD on eBay, the item is below. 




Almost a month later, the guy has said he has finally got around to fitting it, and the cd player doesn't work. I know it was sent working. This message has come through almost a month after I posted the item out, so I am loathed to believe it was faulty on arrival. 


After a couple of messages, he says he was waiting for some radio keys to remove his old radio, and that's why it wasn't fitted sooner. 


Now my question is, if this guy needed radio removal tools to remove his original radio, would this radio fit? 


I think he has bought the wrong unit, and has changed his mind. I have 100% positive feedback, and I know the radio was 100% perfect working condition before sending it out. 

Pcv, Oil Catch Can And Leak From The Intercooler

22 June 2013 - 06:38 PM

So, earlier this year a cat ran out in front of me on a B-road on a bend, so no way could I have missed it. It smashed the bottom of my bumper, and the radiator shields. I didn't realise until a couple of months later when doing the oil change, that the intercooler had come apart slightly from the connecter, and there was a covering of oil on the undertray, and around the remains of the radiator shield. 


Anyway, today I found time to strip the car back enough to access the intercooler and see if I can clean it all off, and see what damage has been done. It's worth noting, I have never noticed the engine use any significant amount of oil. I have had the car from 30k miles, at 3 years old. 


I had a check around the turbo and the inlet, and the crank case breather pipe, and there is a good coating of oil in the breather pipe, the turbo inlet and the turbo housing itself. 


Has anyone carried out any mods to the PCV, either a replacement, updated part or an oil catch can? 


Here's a pic of the oil leak, I guess 100% caused by the impact of the poor kitty.


Focus Cc Roof Problem

04 June 2013 - 01:17 PM

My mum has just been quoted £1400 for a replacement motor for her roof mechanism on her 2006 Focus CC.


Now the information above is vary vague, but the fault has been communicated to myself by text message from my Mum.


Any pointers on any fixes for the CC roof?

A bit late as I've already took my coat off, but hello fellows Ford lovers. 


My name is Chris, I have a 2008 Focus Zetec 1.6 TDCI 109, which was standard up until last week. I am halfway through adding cruise control, I've applied a vinyl carbon wrap to the interior light surround, centre console, radio facia, garage door and the heated screen panel, and fitted a Sony 6cd head unit from a Focus. I've also added the footwell bulbs (free* upgrade!)


*ok, bulbs are a couple of quid.
