Extra Noise After Wind Deflectors Installed

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?


Map Lights Not Working

04 November 2013 - 10:37 AM

I recently bought one of these : 




and installed it into my Focus Mk2.5. I thought these were plug and play!?


The center light works fine, but neither of the 2 map lights work. I did change the bulbs to LED bulbs, surely they cant both be broken! I have not tested with the original bulbs, is there any other snap on part I need?



Thanks Barnet Council For My Scratches!

19 September 2013 - 08:56 AM

Yesterday i returned home from work and noticed that I had aquired some nice new scratch marks on my beloved car! Not only that, but also the passenger side mirror was "closed" not sure thats the term. Car is parked in my driveway/parking bay which is off street.


The only thing I can think is that the council bin men have done a good job and instead of walking down the perfectly good walkway have walked down the side of my car to replace/move bins. And thus have scratched my car.


I've writted a complaint to the council and am awaiting the reply, but in the meanwhile are there any recommendations that I can get for a fix? Would the ford paint repair kit work?

Exhaust Tail Pipe.

16 September 2013 - 01:18 PM

I am looking to attach an exhaust tailpipe without doing anything to the system, it's only for aesthetics. I see you can get various types on eBay, however, Im a but confused, my Focus has the downturned exhaust. How would I attach it? Do you get pipes that fit these? If so does anyone know which one I should go for?



Focus Mk2.5 Audio Upgrade Options?

16 September 2013 - 08:21 AM

Hey peeps,


After taking a long exteneded trip this weekend from London down to Devon, the usage of the radio came into play, and I found the standard audio was terrible in terms of quality. So my question is, what are my options in terms of upgrading? In the long run, I guess I'd want to change the radio etc, but for now I'll probably just be doing speakers, and perhaps a sub? Or would changing the radio/head unit now make a difference?


I am a total noon when it comes to car audio so I really need some advice and perhaps some decent and not expensive options?
