Sway Bar Drop Links Replacement

29 August 2014 - 02:02 PM

I'm in need of replacing my drop links on the front of my focus and need to know if I need to grease tge joints up previous to installing? The replacement I have got does not look like there is any grease in the joints and the move freely.

Would a local garage grease these up for me?

Thinking Of Getting An St

07 August 2014 - 01:42 PM

Just wanted to hear people's thoughts on a st225. I'm debating part exing my focus to get one.

Apart from the power and loss of mpg. What can I expect from one?

I've currently got a 1.6 petrol focus titanium mk2.5. It's got 50,000 miles and full independent service history. What would you value it at?

Rough Paint After Respray.

22 July 2014 - 07:40 PM

I resprayed my rear bumper today after the Mrs had a fight with a bollard.

The paint has fully dried and is now feeling really rough.

Is there anything I can do to get the glass like finish?

The process I used was.

Wet and dry sanded it with 2500 grit.
Let it dry.
Paint prep wipes.
Primer x3 coats.
Paint x3 coats

I never got round to the laquer as time ran out.

Any tips to get the smooth finish back would be wonderful.

Ford Focus Driveshaft Replacement

21 July 2014 - 01:00 PM

I need to replace my driveshaft on the passenger side because the cv joint is knocking,



Is there anything I need to look out for when changing this?



Also am I likely to loose a lot of gearbox oil?



If so would I benefit from changing the oil at this stage or would you just say a top up?



Does anyone know where is best to get gearbox oil and what grade do I need?
