Number Plate Alignment

19 June 2015 - 11:52 AM

Hello peeps!


Just a quick question. I have my MOT coming up soon and my number plates were in desperate need of replacement. I've ordered a standard set (no country or origin tag or crazy fonts), however, they have arrived and they are not centre aligned? They are right aligned and where a country of origin badge should sit theres just a blank space. Surely they should have centre aligned the number, or is this a standard practice now? It's really pi$$ing me off now every time I look at it, and working in the graphic design industry makes it worse. Trouble is, my MOT is on Saturday and there is no time to send them back. Am I being pedantic?


Accelerator Cable In Engine Bay

10 July 2014 - 03:50 PM



Me, yet again! I have a 2002 1.8 TDCi focus that has a noise coming from the engine bay that only occurs when the accelerator is pressed. I need to find out where the noise is coming from, but I don't usually have a second pair of hands (or feet) to run the accelerator whilst I look in the engine bay. Can someone tell me where the accelerator cable is, in the engine bay, so that I can rev the engine without having to press the pedal?


cheers in advance!

Acceleration Noise

Ello peeps,
Was wondering if anyone can shed some light on this problem that I have had with my car for quite a while. When the engine is up to temperature (doesn't occur running a cold engine) the car makes what I can only be described as a "hooting" noise. I had checked under the bonnet and there are no trapped owls that I can see.
Heres a video clip of what happens:




Any suggestions will be much appreciated. I have had to oil filter changed in it's last service, so I don't think its the oil filter housing.
