    Fuel filter

    Indeed. But what will happen if it is filled with poor quality gasoline (benzina)?
  4. for the rear camera do I have to connect pins 1 and 2 as shown in the diagram, or 2 and 4 as in the video tutorial?
  5. Just to clarify things. This thread was originally created for the Ford Focus. Most of the people contributing are doing this on a Ford Focus and know very little about the Kuga. All I can say is that a GPSM module is required for Sync2 to work. But I don't know if the Kuga has this installed from the factory. If it is installed from the factory as standard then you do not need to purchase one as it is already there. On a Ford Focus it has to be added, but as was mentioned above, you would be better off joining a Kuga forum as they would know more about your car. We can all h

  8. Yes it will run with wrong codes! Might smoke a bit! I incorrectly coded 2 of my injectors (got cylinders #2 and #3 wrong way round ) and cars following me kept their distance + it failed mot on smoke test) but it'll run. By far the best reader and cheap at around £20 is one from Tunnelrat electronics...have.look on their website and drop them a line if you aren't sure... Steve Elmer there always replies. And yes you can code your injectors with it to. There IS a way to do a leakoff test on a non-running engine, here's a link, but what it doesn't mention is that when you disconnect th
  9. I’m pretty sure it’ll be suitable. Definitely owners on here that can confirm that for you.. ??

    Fuel filter

    There isn't a fuel filter on newer petrol fords. Only filter as such is the in tank strainer as part of fuel sender unit/ pump assembly.
  11. The cluster can be reprogrammed by ford but the mileage cannot be altered downward if the replacement cluster is higher mileage than original. The gem module holds a copy of the cluster info/config and that info is used to program the cluster. Also the keys will need to be programmed into the pats on cluster to. Fords diag is ford IDs.

  13. To edit left-click on the three dots at the top right of your post (that's for a PC but there should be something similar for a phone or tablet).
  14. I am confused ... There are those who tell me that I need the gpsm module because there is no factory with sync 1, and there are those who tell me that it is there from the factory ... who is right ???
  15. Hi all! Does anyone have the Eibach Pro kit installed on their Focus? I’m thinking of putting them on mine, but as it’s a daily driver the only thing that’s putting me off is the ground clearance for the nose. I occasionally use a multi-storey car park and the ramps to the next level up are quite steep. Has anyone here had any issues with ground clearance at all? I’d also love to see any pictures of yours with the springs on! Cheers!
  16. The one I posted is for Sync 3.2-3.4 I think, it’s different than the one for 3.0
  17. So will the injector still fire if its not coded in? It was my understanding the car ignores the injector while its not coded in ? Looking into it ive managed to get hold of a laptop what brand of link is recommended for the obd and can i code them on forscan?
  18. Ginge, you’ll probably hear some critics about ecoboost engines. But if I’m honest, the 2013 models had an overheating issue but it wasn’t the engine itself, it was a faulty pipe which leaked the coolant. But as you said you’re looking at a 2017 model so you will be fine. I had a 2016 model on a 66 plate and was a brilliant car for me 👍🏼 Was sad to see it go.
  19. Anyone know where I can get a diffuser for the lower skirt. Someone has stolen mine and to replace from Ford it’s £381 for the whole skirt. I’m only looking to replace the diffuser.
  20. If you're prepared to give it a go, buy an injector removal socket, and change injector #4, you don't need to reprogram the 'new' one to see if the engine runs.
  21. You don't need a separate GPSM module or antenna on the Kuga. It has one fitted at the factory and is behind the instrument cluster. Have you started doing the install yet. Are you aware that there is absolutely nothing to mount the sync 2 screen to and you have to cut quite a bit of the existing dashboard away. There is no going back to sync 1 once you start cutting. This procedure is not for the faint hearted. It is an extremely time consuming procedure and is much more involved than doing it on the Focus. I would suggest you join the Kuga UK club where there are other members
  22. Alex, I have Sync 3.0 build 20204 and maps 6.1, and the maps update I get offered from Ford is only 8.something GB and fails after the first requested key cycle. Can I safely use the F9 file that you put up for download on the Focus thread? There's nothing vehicle type specific about it?
