  1. Yeah I'm not sure the parts are that expensive, it's just the labour! How much did you pay?
  2. Sorry, I got my father in law to take it in, and they said it's starting to go, didnt go into details. But I noticed in 2018 one of the service reciepts said 'clutch slipping, advise replacement. I think the slave cylinder is the part that would get replaced as well as the clutch come to think about it, it was a phone call I took and when they said 400 I just thought I ain't paying that! I get trouble when shifting into 3rd and reverse, I thought it was the gearbox but I obviously know nothing about cars! I don't really want to pay over 500, then for something else to go wrong. I know I could have the same issues with another car, but I guess that's the risk I'll have to take. It's a 2005, petrol 1.6 with 102k.
  3. 1k? Ouch. I only saw all the jobs that needed doing after I brought the car 🙈 I already spent 300 on the cambelt change a few months after I purchased it! I didn't think the advisories were that much of big deal as I don't really know much about cars.
  4. Hi guys, as the post states need some advice. My clutch is starting to go, the garage has said that to get the replaced they would advise another part to be replaced (flywheel?) So it's going to be £400. I noticed from my service history that this was advised at the start of 2018, I purchased the car Dec 2018. I noticed the gear change isn't as smooth and its sometimes hard to get into certain gears, hence why I took it in. My advisories from my last MOT in November were suspension arm bush worn O/S and N/S. In 2018 it was advised that the rear suspension coils were corroded and needed replacing soon, and the rear brake shoes were wearing low (not sure why that isn't on the last MOT though) So my question is will this cost a lot of money to replace? Shall I cut my losses and sell? I can't afford a new or even slightly expensive older car as I'm saving for a house Deposit but I don't want a bill in November when the MOT is due. What would you guys do? Thanks
  5. What built in Sat nav can I fit to my MK2? Don't want to spend too much!
  6. I believe my fingernail does get caught in it, it's quite deep. I was thinking of taping up the area around it, even using newspaper to cover the area around the scratch then attempt the painting. I will use a small brush then or a toothpick and build up the paint as you mentioned! If I screw it up can I fix it?
  7. I've been meaning to fix this scratch, what is the best way? I've purchased a ford touch up kit from eBay but not sure how to use it!

    DAB

    When you go into the Bluetooth settings, of the DAB by clicking on the i there should be an option media audio, make sure that Is set to on.
  9. Ok after fiddling for a bit, there's a part that detaches from the side of the door, you need to be careful as you can break the clips that hold it in. It also 'hugs' the door inside It's held to the door with I think some silicone. I have attached a picture if anyone else needs to replace them. Now you may just be able to slide the weatherstrip into place without removing the mirror, if there isn't any bolts, but I will report back when I have completed the job.
  10. Do I have to remove the door card then to remove the weather strip?
  11. It looks a lot different on a MK2! Theres a plastic bit on the door in the inside, no bolts. And on the pillar of the door is a tweeter speaker. Anyone have any idea how I can tackle this?
  12. I thought that, but after watching a video for a 2008 Focus it doesn't look like that's the case!
  13. My ones are old now, and I'd like to change them. I've seen a pair on eBay for 20 odd quid. Now what I would like to know is how easy is it to change them? Is the weatherstrip the bit that gets rid of rain when you wind the window down? I see mine has a little bit of what looks like felt on the inside, will the new ones have that? Can I fix my old ones? Thanks
