What is the shiny vertical strip, 1/3 in from the left and 1/2 down from the top of photo? Looks like something is rubbing on inside of wheel.... i.e brake caliper.

Wouldn't the low battery voltage (duff battery as you put it) result in the injector pressure low when starting? Also isn't going to help glow plugs if battery voltage is low.

Nope. Why would you want to?

In Topic: Advice When Buying A Mk1 Focus

Just be aware that the 1.6 zetec s engine is prone to breaking piston rings at highish mileages. Its almost impossible to tell its suffering from this when you test drive the car.....  you only notice the very high oil consumption after you have bought it. Not all of them suffer from this but if I had to put a figure on it, I would say up to 10% of them which is quite high. Its a nice engine if you get a good one. I had mine for about 8 or 9 years and really liked it.
