Led Lights For Number Plate.

19 March 2014 - 10:48 AM



I have led lights above my number plate , I like the look of the white glow they give off but the problem is they don't seem to last very long.


I always thought leds were quite long lasting, perhaps its because the ones I get are not very well made as I do normally just get them off ebay.


Does anyone know of place to get leds at a reasonably price that last a bit longer? , seen as some cars have leds as standard in number plates I'm sure they don't need to change them every 6 months. So Im guessing mine are just not very well made.


Can anyone help?



Key Fob Battery Help

29 January 2014 - 10:07 AM



Getting a message pop up on my dash about my key battery being low.


It looks easy to change after looking at a video on youtube but I just need to make sure its something I can do without buggering anything up.


Also where is the best place to get the batteries from?


I have the keyless start/entry key fob


according to the owners book I require a 3VCR 2032 , I guess any well known brand will do?



Filling Up Tank Minor Problem?

09 January 2014 - 10:46 PM



When I fill up my tank with diesel it keeps shutting off and I have to hold the handle only a little down so hardly any goes in the tank , even then it shuts off.


If I squeeze the handle all the way it just shuts off.


I'm not sure if it was the pump or my car but its happened a few times now and is a bit annoying.



Any ideas?






Tow Eye Cover Paint Help

30 December 2013 - 10:53 AM



Some ****** lobbed a glass bottle from his car while I was driving in the other direction recently and as always is the case I have to pay for the damage while the **** who done it goes about his low life existence!


Anyway rant over , I have chip/scuff damage on my front bumper and a cracked windscreen which I have a appointment booked for a replacement.


Luckily I have windscreen cover although I will need to pay windscreen excess.


I dont really want to claim for the other damage as my excess it high.


I also lost my tow eye cover from this and fords sell them for a fiver but they are just primer so I would need to paint it , not sure where to purchase the paint?


I need panther black spray , halfords?


and I'm not sure if I need Lacquer , can this be bought from halfords?


Just need advice on what I need to do to respray a tow eye cover and best way to repair scuffed/chipped plastic front bumper?


thanks guys

H7 Dipped Beam Guide?

13 December 2013 - 10:33 AM

Hi , not been on here for a while. :)



My drivers side dipped beam has blown , I have changed the bulbs before but when I last had a service/mot at my local Fords garage they said my dipped beam had been fitted incorrectly.


Anyway they did fit them correctly for me , but I never thought to ask what I had done wrong.


Its a Philips h7 blue vision ultra thats blown but I have ordered some Osram nightbreaker unlimited to swap both out so I then have  all Osram as my high beams are also nightbreakers.


Getting to the point, lol , is there any good guides on fitting h7 bulbs to a Ford focus 08 onwards.
