Just A Thought On Yearly Parts!!!!!

02 June 2015 - 01:04 AM

Ok guys
Got the yearly service stuff from local Ford parts department for this year's service and noticed a slight change in the air filter.

Firstly the box is different last year is shown on the right in the pics and this year's is shown on the left.

Secondly the top end as a Ford motorcarft stamp with the word "down" printed as well and the one last year had the Ford details engraved into it with no word "down" at the bottom. Also on the bottom of the old one it had a small plastic lip that clipped into the air box where the new one does not.

I have tried to show this in the pics attached but has anyone noticed this when they got service parts this year? I was thinking maybe Ford made changes to it or just got a different manufacture or something but It seems to the correct part as I double checked with my vin number upon ordering.

Just a bit strange but I guess it the way things go lol! Was just wondering your thoughts on this and if anyone has noticed this from their local Ford?

Thanks

Low Washer Fluid!!!

15 May 2015 - 10:15 AM

Is it possible to get the low washer fluid warning to work on the focus? I think I read somewhere that some people added in a sensor to the washer bottle or something.

 

I did activate it through elmconfig but the Low washer fluid message stayed on the dash screen even after I topped it up with 2 litres of water so I turned it back of again.

 

Has anyone got any tips or guides for this mod or what to check for as it would be great to see when the washers need a top up rather than wait until they run dry lol!  :)

 

Thanks


Genuine Ford Stuff

14 May 2015 - 10:17 AM

Hi Fellas

 

that time to service the car had come again. I usually go to my local dealer to get my service parts and but upon reading through the forums I have come across a website called "fordpartsuk".

 

Has anyone bought from here befoe and are they all brand genuine ford parts in boc as they are from the local dealership?

 

also I have a mk2.5 focus 1.6 zetec 2009 so I think this kit will be correct for my focus?

 

http://www.fordpartsuk.com/shop/ford_focus_service_kit_16_duratec_100ps_f_KIT55011118_c_559.htm 

 

 

 

Upon reading the contents it includes:

 

Kit Includes: 
.Oil Filter 
.Air Filter
.Air Filter Pad 
.Pollen Filter 
.Spark Plugs 


.Sump Plug & Washer 

 

all of the above I would usually get for my service except the sump washer and plug but if its included I guess it wont hurt to use it. The only other thing that caught my eye in the contents was the "AIR FILTER PAD"

 

does any one know what this "AIR FILTER PAD" is? I can only think it may the small sponge type pad that fits under the air filter at the bottom of the intake box but not sure as I have never came across this in my local dealer. They usually just supply the usual stuff (plugs, air filter, oil filter, pollen filter ect)

 

 

Thanks
