looks like the ti vct 115bhp version you have if so then the power steering will make a slight noise on full lock ford will tell you thats because youre stationary ive seen quite a few that make a bit of noise which isnt unusual as its hydraulic not like some of the newer ones the seat may just need a bolt tightened


Now you mention it I get a slight noise on full lock aswel. Mine is the 100bhp one. Is that hydraulic?

Check the bolts holding the seats in. Maybe loose.

Could the power steering problem come from the steering rack? Seeing as the work they have already done.

That's definitely the cv joint knocking. I've got that issue at the moment. A little word of advise would be to change the whole driveshaft as the driveshaft is cheaper than the cv joints and comes already made up so no messing around swapping bits over. Also the rubber seal in gearbox would need replacing at the same time.

Search eBay for ice white h??bulbs. What ever the actual bulb number is.

Some sellers do a kit for the full front end. Well one did for my focus. Also do your reverse light and number plate lights.

#391707 Ford Focus St Honeycomb Grill

Posted by karlos1987 on Today, 07:48 AM

Lenny
Can you put the St upper grill on a standard bumper?

Where did you get the one you have on your lower grill I think it has a chrome strip around it?

Without changing the whole bumper what's the best looking grill you could recommend just to give it a little better look than standard stock bumper?


I believe that is the titanium bottom grill with the chrome around the outside. That will fit any mk2.5 bumper downwards spec of the st.

You could do it yourself for about £40 if you don't mind getting your hands dirty.

A light rub down with 2500 grit sand paper. Clean and let dry completely. Then spray 3 coats of primer leaving 30 mins between each coat. Then if possible leave for 24 hours before spraying the black. (I couldn't wait this long as the Mrs was heavily pregnant and needed a car incasecshe went into labour)

I waited an.hour then sprayed gloss black 3 coats again 30 mins drying time and then again with the laquer as above.

You can also sand between the prime/paint/laquer if it is drying to a rough feel.

If you do it this way make sure you mask your tyre up unless you want a semi permanent glossy tyre. Lol

#391306 Tinted Rear Lights

Posted by karlos1987 on Yesterday, 10:27 AM

Along as you can clearly see the brake lights and distinguish between brake, indicator, fog, reverse then that will be fine.

I don't think your allowed to tint the reflective part of the lights.

#391280 Tinted Rear Lights

Posted by karlos1987 on Yesterday, 09:08 AM

I used that spray tint and it is really good and easy to use.

I only ordered one can and ran out before I got the desired look for me. So I'm guna buy a second can. Might be worth buying 2.

Posted by karlos1987 on 28 July 2014 - 08:05 PM

I should of done really. To be honest I don't know about the police.

I told the insurance company the truth and just got her to pay up and left it at that.
