Replacing 2001 1.6 Lx Brake Pads, Easy?

26 February 2013 - 10:10 PM

Is it a simple job to replace front brake pads on a 2001 Focus, any surprises in store?

Free Mk7 Wheel

14 January 2013 - 07:51 PM

We have a clean but scuffed 15 spoke wheel with a part worn Continental 195/45 R16 tyre for a MK7 Fiesta which was left over from our four years of Fiesta ownership

We don't need it anymore and it's taking up space so if someone wants to pick it up from us in Milton Keynes it's free.

Might make a good emergency spare wheel/tyre if it's roadworthy.

Internal Central Locking Activation

12 December 2012 - 11:58 PM

Our 2001 Focus central locking works perfectly from the key fob, but the manual suggests that when sitting inside the car pushing the drivers (and front passenger) lock tab, next to the interior door handle should activate the central locking to all doors.

I have checked the handbook and checked the fuses which are intact - but there is a mystery central locking fuse (63 I think) which is "behind the fuse box" where exactly is this fuse?

If not the fuses where should I look next to get the internal central locking working?

Many thanks.

Mk1 Focus 1.6 Reserve Range

Hello all.

We now have a new old Focus to replace our old new Fiesta!

Our 2010 Fiesta used to chime at 50 remaining miles of fuel - but our retro 2001 Focus has the usual fuel light.

Now this question wouldn't bother me, but my girlfriend wants to know how many miles you could typically expect to drive when the light comes on until you splutter to a halt with no fuel...

My guess is about 50 or so, am I right?
