  1. Many thanks for the info mate, i have sent them an email with the details about my car so hopefully ill get a reply soon. many thanks again 😉
  2. Many thanks for the reply mate. When i try to order they are for the key code.. How did you go about ordering yours, that is a much more realistic price.
  3. My key for removing the locking wheel nuts is knackered, whats the cheapest way of getting a new one. I have no car so getting to a dealer is tricky. There is a place online but they are 38 quid which seems a bit expensive. 2010 mk2.5 focus zetec.
  4. Just an update to let you guys know i got the slave cylinder replaced, fortunately there was no oil on the clutch plate. It cost 210 pound on labour for a mobile mechanic to do the job. Many thanks again for everyone's help.
  5. Ok many thanks for the info. I hope the clutch is not soaked with brake fluid. I will pick up a CSC tomorrow and im try to arrange for a mobile mechanic to carry out the job at my home. cheers,
  6. Many thanks for the information. How likely is it that the clutch will be gone too? Any other car i have had has usually had an external slave. I took a chance and trying to save money. Now i have messed up big time.
  7. Guys many thanks for your replies. I put the car off the road. I looked at the suggestions here and it does look like the slave cylinder is leaking fluid. I tried to bleed the clutch, when i pumped the pedal, nothing came out the bleed nipple, i could hear the fluid heavily dripping onto the floor. I have included a video on the fluid dripping from the bottom of the gearbox. Does it look like its definitely the slave cylinder.
  8. Hi thanks for your reply i was trying to keep the job as cheap as possible, i will get it up on my home ramps and check the gearbox for leaks. I will report back 😉 Many thanks for your informative reply. Ill get the car up on my home ramps and look at all the brake pipes and connections, also the slave cylinder pipework, check for leaks where possible. Ill report back thanks for your reply it will hopefully help
  9. Hey guys. My girlfriends focus the clutch has stopped working. The clutch pedal goes up and down but it won't go into gear. The brake/clutch fluid is very low however the brakes are OK. I'm surprised there is no level warning sensor on this car. Anyway I topped up the reservoir but it has not made any difference. What seems to be the problem? A few months ago the clutch was replaced. I chose not to replace the slave cylinder. Does the clutch need bled?
  10. thanks for your reply, it turns out they were more expensive than the another 2 online places i had my eye on, i ordered mine from www.windscreenwipers.co.uk for £28.71 for the 2 fronts and a single bosch rear. The site you suggested was a few quid more. Thanks anyway. I did phone bosch to ask them about genuine online stockists but they were useless and it was a waste of time.
  11. Yeah good idea bud, i cant imagine any thief nicking a crappy for radio but stranger things have happened. 😉 I dont think my girlfriend will be interested in your gym suggestion lol.. I might just have to lube what areas i can, starting at the handbrake and then see if i can get oil down the cables in any way, then take the back wheels and drums off and lube the handbrake lever mechanism, its a lot of hassle though. 😞
  12. Thanks for the reply Luke, i have found plenty of places that sell them for a good online price but unless someone has bought from them then we cant be sure they are genuine. Ebay is especially risky for everything fake these days.
  13. Guys many thanks for all the helpful replies. I got an ebay code for 99p and it works a treat, problem is solved. 😉 There is a website forum you can join and post your serial number, wait a little while and someone will post the code for free, it was just easier using ebay than registering for a forum but i just thought i would mention it incase anyone wants to use the forum for a free code. 😉
  14. Thanks for the replies guys. I always find Halfords to be a lot more expensive and i usually buy online. Halfords is £32 for the blades and some places sell them online for £20. The problem is you dont know if they are genuine or not. @dtulip8 thanks for the part number it makes searching a bit easier. 😉 wireywhenwet, thanks for your reply it sounds like they are easy to fit. I dont have a premium card though. 😉
  15. Hey guys where can i buy genuine Aerotwin Bosch wipers for my 2010 mk2 focus hatchback. I noticed there is a lot of fakes out there so i thought its best to ask first. Are they a direct fit for the standard wipers? Cheers 😃
