#314338 Extra Noise After Wind Deflectors Installed

Posted by mongman on 23 December 2013 - 12:27 PM

Hey people.

 

not sure if this is already covered, i did try searching but ever since I put my Heko wind deflectors on I notice there is alot of extra "wind" noise on the driver side, i suspect the window is ever so slightly ajar as now-a-days it's freezing when i get in the car and I also sometime notice some misting going while the car is parked.

 

I have tried moving the placement of the the metal clips but no luck. I find it really annoying, so loud in my ear that i cant hear the radio!!

 

Is it safe to take these clips out? Any suggestions?

Thanks dude! The DRL's I got from another dude on another forum, but you get em off ebay or even aliexpress.com.

 

The foot pedal replacement sounds easy enough, thanks for that.

 

Another thing I am considering doing is replacing the bonnet trim/lip. It's currently chrome, want to change it to black.

From looking at the Mondeo latch mk3
Its a pull latch type and looks to be of similar design to the focus,
I had planned to purchase a mk3 latch and have a go but never happened,
Could fit a pull latch under the car to pop the bonnet without the lock and without running a pull cord in to the car,
So unusual it would be,
No one would expect it to operate that way so you would be safe in terms of theft.

If it is the round type filter,
Then for a few extra pounds you could new get the massive K&N57s which has dropped by over a staggering 100GBP in the past three months.

The bonnet lock was a !Removed! to fix, but I got it sorted in the end. Who says brute force doesnt help a bad situation?!?!

 

I'll have a look tonight regarding the filter.

 

My new foot pedals arrived this morning, so I am going to fit them tonight too. Anybody know how as i did not get any instructions?

 

 

I rate they will looks pretty flash along with the bright white bulbs I have in the footwells.

Awesome! Still need to check if mine is the round type or the flat panel.

Your focus is a Mk2.5
Its exactly the same chassis, wiring and internals as the Mk2
But the body panels attached are different,
Your headlight bulbs are:
H1 high beam
H7 low beam
And
H11 fog lights if fitted,

Check out my guide in the list below this post on fitting a Green Performance induction filter aswell as a link to purchase from priracing with a forum discount code

http://www.fordowner...-fitting-guide/

Or if your loaded with cash,
Purchase a K&N57s induction kit.

 

That Green performance filter Lenny, is it a direct swop with my current bog standard Ford special? I wouldn't need to purchase anything else or modify anything else?

DRLs are in!!!
 
I must give LOTS of credit to Lenny who i have been emailing constantly
all day regarding this and the man has been a complete legend in helping
me sort out wiring and telling me what could be wrong when they didn't
work 1st time. He answered all my annoying emails and eventually we got
it sorted! Thanks again mate!
