  1. Get yourself a trim removal kit (https://www.amazon.co.uk/Removal-Phyles-Console-Installation-Remover/dp/B07B7F5T8D/ref=sr_1_6?keywords=trim+removal+kit&qid=1570585300&sr=8-6) There are equidistant rectangular tabs located on the grill that clip over tabs on the bumper. You need to use the plastic tool to go round the grill releasing the tabs whilst trying not to damage the paint work. Pry down on the grill to release the bumper whilst pulling the grill away from the car. It's a bugger of a job, but don't use a screw driver.
  2. Anyone fitted them? Pro's - Cons -
  3. 1.5 diesel and since June with 4500 miles.
  4. FLAKEY AS FOOK!!!!! Stuff switches off randomly, hill assist, speed limiter, USB media device. Other stuff hangs or just plays up. And it's all random and fixed with an ignition cycle.
  5. Any way ya like. 3M VHB tape, glue, nail, screw....or just plain magic.
  6. I've just uploaded my video on changing the halogen dipped and main bulbs on the MK4 Focus. Enjoy and hope it helps.
  7. I've got an ST-LINE X 1.5 oil burner and i get the clunk from 1st to 2nd. I'll ask them to look at that on first service.

    Don't panic what version you have, the Focus is jittery over the bumps, no matter what suspension you have. Coming from a 1 series BMW that seemed to be perfectly damped, the Focus reacts to every bump and when pushed seems skittish, great if you like that feeling.
  9. I'm no expert, but next time it happens don't restart it once it's stalled. Stop the car and go and check the fuel cap, listen to see if you can hear any hissing. Also, remove it to see if the tank has pulled a vacuum. If you can, remove the fuel cap, when cold, and then start the car and drive to see if it still cuts out. It could be an issue with the fuel tank vent valve and associated system.
  10. Fitted the ST Line badge to the front grill. I'm happy with the results. Adds a unique look to the front grill of the ST Line.
  11. The problem seems to also be linked to the amount of current the pad can provide and also the temp of the phone. I've got a Samsung NOTE 8, fitted with a 3300mAh battery. If it's over approx 90% charge and over 24 degrees centigrade the phone will charge for about 30 seconds then stop, with the misaligned error. The phone now stays in place no matter what. I'm also checking to see if the charger socket in the same location is on the same circuit and may also cause the charge current for the pad to be limited. A long term test scenario.
  12. Fitting LED bulbs will blind other road users and get you flashed, a lot! The MK4 Focus has 3 headlight options from factory: 1) standard halogen with LED running lights (the ones you have) 2) LED headlights with LED running lights. These are the ones to go for, they produce a GOOD legal white light. 3) LED adaptive lights.These are the ones that move when turning corners. Not sure these would be an easy swap, may need something enabled in the ECU and also harness additions. You could try the ICE/BLUE halogen bulbs that companies like Philips or GE produce. These have a limited life span, i've found to be about a year from fitting. Hope this helps a bit. Keep us posted on what you decide.
  13. Do any of the "technical" people know what type of valve FORD use in their air conditioning units? Either - expansion valve or orifice tube? This is on a Focus MK4 2019.
