  1. I did just that as part of my fault finding, Next day the fault had gone. Now only shows when the door is open..
  2. That crossed my mind too. Two hours with a plastic scraper, and white spirit, they are now off.
  3. Thanks guys that makes a lot of sense. I put new tyres on three months ago I can see the new weights.. I will wait for a warm day , and do a bit of scraping.
  4. I bought a Chinese wheel brush from ebay to clean the inboard rims of my wheels. Did a marvellous job. Afterwards I noticed on all four wheels on the inboard side there are 60mm lengths of tape on the rim. Do these have a purpose. I googled it but found nothing, so thought you guys might know. They look lto have been there a long time.
  5. Today the imformation lamp came on with the message drivers side rear door open. My haynes manuel says the switch is integral with the door lock and cannot be bought seperately. So looks like an expensive fix with labour charges. Any one know of a easy fix, looking at the wiring drawings, it appears the switch just closes to earth when the door is open, so appears to be permanently closed. even when the door is closed.
  6. Unable to find any evidence of cam belt change on my focus, and at now nine years old it needs doing. Am I right in believing that this engine is non interference, and should not suffer catastrophic damage if the belt broke.. I fully intend to bite the bullet and have it changed.. I was confident of it being a non interference engine till I did a google search, always a mistake, so much misinformation out there and much of it mischievous.
  7. I have recently bought a Mk2 2010 focus. Should it have Lighting in the luggage area.? I don't seem to be able to find any.
