Ford Focus 2007 1.6 Zetec Auto - Rattling Noise When Starting Up

18 December 2013 - 09:55 AM

Hi all, need advice on something strange which started from yesterday. When I start up the engine there is a rattling noise which stays there for a few min but then goes away when I drive it. Not sure what it is. Could it be because of oil being low? It's like a tap tap tap noise but when I rev the engine it goes? Hopefully it's nothing serious..

Advise On How To Upgrade Stereo Sytem, Sound And Interior

13 August 2013 - 08:12 PM

Hi Everyone,


This is the first time ive ever particiated in any kind of Forums however i really want to make my Ford Focus 1.6 Zetec Auto 57 plate look as cool as possible without breaking the bank to do it.


i have been so inspired by some of the topics ive read and as a kid have asked for advise. So i ask for as many advise and information on turning a standard interior, looking classy.


So far i have managed to chnage the trims of the sterring wheel only because the standard silver was worn out and for £9.99 these are perfect.

Now for the above i need info on parts, Stoney has provided a guide to install a Factory Sony 2008 (i think) system into the car. however i need to find out where i can get the tools from or the carbon effect or unless i wrap it how do i do it? like shown in Mike's Pic http://www.fordowner...aded-headunits/


finally the below pic, am little confused as my Cigg lighter doesnt have a flap as shown in Mike's pic http://www.fordowner...aded-headunits/. Is this something i can add/install? and can you tell me what they are called plz

O yes before i forget, my rear speakers have busted and i dont have a clue what to replace them with... :unsure: Ive read many articles however it doesnt say what size are the correct ones and or if any other sizes can be installed without any hassle.


So guys your help on the above will be much appreciated and i wait in exitment on your response.
