I do alot of outdoor sports and scratching my car has become a habbit of mine.. some a the scratches are down to the metal


im looking at selling it and getting a new car in the coming months but dont wanna get naff all for it. and i dont wanna spend loads of money on the paintwork..



any suggestions on what i can do ?





Metal On Metal Squeaking Noise

10 May 2014 - 06:32 PM

I have a loud metal on metal squeaking noise coming from what i think is the front right wheel when i turn right and occasionally when going in a straight line at low speed.


I've no idea what it could be. I started by thinking it was the breaks bedding in as it only started after I changed my pads and discs on the front but i dont think so now.



any ideas?!!?

03 Focus Soft Brakes... Worried

15 January 2014 - 10:39 PM

Just had my two rear sets of pads changed on my 03 Focus and i came to drive it and the brakes pedal went down a long way before any effective breaking. If i "pumped" the pedal 2/3 times it would become more firm/responsive but if i let it sit for a few seconds it would settle back down to being soft and unresponsive again.


Any ideas?





Car Runs Fine Then All Lights Come On And Speedo + Rev Count Stops

19 December 2013 - 10:42 AM

So i was driving home from work, car struck up fine, but after 15 mins the lights on the dash started to show, which shouldnt happen and the speedo and rev counter decided to stop working. i got home, turned car off, tried to strike up again and it just "ticked" when i turned the key.


got a friend to jump start it, worked fine.


next morning worked fine, got home, worked all day fine..


next day did the same thing 5 minutes after leaving for work. pulled by the roadside and tried to restart car.. didnt work.. just a ticking noise.


jump lead again and its fine. took it to a garage and they cant find anything wrong.


so left garage , played up again. left it on drive for 5 mins with lights on, came back to it and the lights were off.. tried to restart car and it worked fine..


any ideas?
