  1. I know, unbelievable. If he read through both threads, most of not all questions are answered :) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  2. There’s no need for that is there? As you can probably appreciate we all have lives and don’t spend 24/7 on a forum. If you search the forum for ‘Phil’s build guide’ you should find another user who has done the same swap and took a fair few photos. Cross reference this guide and Phil’s and you should be fine. This is what I did and I didn’t have any issues at all, fairly straight forward. Let’s stop with the BS and appreciate that Luke went out of his way to post his findings on a forum and to share some knowledge on the matter. It’s not going to be as clear as a ford owners manual but it’s a ***** decent guide to follow. He could of simply kept this to himself, but he didn’t. We all will assist when and where we can but don’t come on to this forum and start kicking off because you are struggling to follow and FREE guide. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. Following also, would love to see love real dyno results and stuff. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  4. My 14 plate focus st does exactly the same. It’s nothing to worry about. Naturally they idle rough regardless of the weather/temp. Turns out Ford have done a recall on the US Spec focus st mk3 but the European model doesn’t show anything in relation to this. This was because of very rough ideling and sometimes stalling. Mine idles rough, but never has it stalled. I’ve just had a full services on mine a few days a go and the new spark plugs seem to have eased the ideling. Don’t worry about it :) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  5. Happy days! At least they’ve diagnosed the fault and are sorting it for you. It’s making me wonder about mine now, whether or not I need to dig deeper and work out of its a fault or not :) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  6. Hi, Was wondering if someone can tell me what colour or shade of silver the alloys are on the pre-facelift focus ST mk3 are? There’s a few different ones and I don’t fancy buying the wrong one or trying multiple ones to refurbish my alloys. I’ve had a looked and the closest I think is probably Sparkle silver? Cheers!

  7. Pins 1 and 8 I’m referring too. If you take a look at the back of your media hub you will see what u mean. I just tacked the wires with a bit of solder on to the pins with heat shrink tube over them so they don’t touch the other ‘spare’ pins. Also, instead of running them two wires all the way back up to the harness you can get away with splicing them on to the 12v socket in the rear. Just double check the voltages on the harness compared to the 12v socket. Again, if you don’t want line in I’d do the above. Sorry for the multiple posts, slowly remembering what I did :) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  8. Oh and as for the usb loom, honestly, make your own. You only need two wires from the media hub unless you want to keep the line in... the two wires I’m referring too provide the hub with power and the usb cable is used for both the sd card slot and the usb slot. literally positive and negative from the media hub attached to the corresponding pins on the harness and then a long micro usb cable! Made my life so much easier and less faffing around with multiple wires and pins. Up to you! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  9. I got mine from amazon too. And instead of popping the pins out I cut the wires and swapped them round and soldered them back together... the easier option would have been popping the pins out [emoji23] lmao. I was thinking straight haha. Should be fairly easy, from what I remember you just pull and they pop out? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  10. That’s pretty cool! The price is ridiculous though! Good find :) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  11. I’ve got and used one of them harnesses. Instead of doing the pin swaps on your main loom, do everything on the harness before you plug it in and it’s literally plug and play. Well worth the money and not knackering your original harness! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  12. My stock 14 st250 has a really rough idle. It’s like it’s about to stall but it never does. Did a bit of research and apparently it’s a common issue on this model. The US market have had recalls done on the engine bay wiring harness for this issue but there’s nothing in the UK regarding this. As long as you have power through all the gears and no misfires I wouldn’t worry. I’ve had it for the past year or so and haven’t had anything come of it. No codes show up either on forscan :) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  13. Thank god for that! Phewww! Made up for you! Nothing worse when something like that happens! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  14. I take it forscan doesn’t pick up the car either? If it does, do a module reset... that may help? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  15. Can’t remember of top of my head, google is your best best! Good luck! I’m pretty sure you click read to view your car configuration and then you literally click either save or export... can’t remember it’s been a while! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
