Are you pushing it in far enough?

Try holding the nozzle at 30 degrees from centre, sometimes helps.

I've only got it down my Focus once, and that was because I didn't push the nozzle in far enough.

Letting it run really low means you get back pressure too, so I often push the nozzle in slightly and let the air out (you can hear it) first.

I agree with above there's a flap and if the nozzle doesn't go all the way in the flap stays up and overflows I've done it twice until I realised it goes a fair way in on mine.

That's what she said :wink:
