Does my car have one? I can't seem to find replacement parts online



Soundproofing In The Mk2.5.......

What are everyones thoughts on this. I do quite a lot of motorway miles and since they have put quieter tarmac down I have noticed I can hear my engine a lot more.

Does my car have a particularly loud engine or are they all the same

How High Is Your Clutch?

03 September 2014 - 11:24 AM

Just a quick question really.....


How high is the bite on everyone elses clutch.


I have a 2010 Focus 1.8 Petrol and the bite point is ridiculously high on it. I was advised that it was due to the hydraulic clutch that it was so high, but I don't know if I was being a fed a load of cobblers.

Has anyone ever changed the colour of the LED Display in the dash....It looks really out of place for some reason and fancied a blue one

Duratec He 1.8 50K Service

08 July 2014 - 12:54 PM



My car is quickly approaching the 50k mark and is in need of a service (50k/4 years) (Last done at 40k, think it should have been done at 37500).


The previous owner did the service late so i could probably get away with leaving it later, but as I love my car, I don't want to ruin it.


I intend to complete the service myself and check/renew the following....does anyone have any additional bits and bobs they think I should be checking.


Check Handbrake (seems ok already, 2 clicks)

Replace the wipers

Coolant Topup

Replace Oil

New Oil Filter

Tyre Pressure (should be ok as done quite regular)

Check Auxillary belt, but it was replace at 42k so hopefully all still fine
