Posted by artscot79 on 24 January 2015 - 02:30 PM

Got and fitted a few for friends with no issues though one or two when fitted the plastic cowling refused to fully clip in by a few mm a simple dremel or multitool shaving a smidge off the ring and all fits perfectly

You're drawing heat from the engine the gauge if you read the handbook is a coolant temp gauge not engine temp as you were sitting the heat was drawn out of coolant hence why it dropped

#442217 Focus Titanium Mk2.5 Spoiler Swap

You need it on the pads that go around the bolt holes otherwise water can leak through which eventually it does you wont notice at first to check remove the plastic cover that hides the bolts to the spoiler and attatch some tissue paper to the inside with a bit of tape after heavy rain pop it off if theres a leak you'll know most on here have done it anyway seal it as those pads when they get too wet just leak

Remember to use a good quality silicone when fitting the spolier or you'll end up with a wet boot
