  1. MK1 Focus Wing mirror

    Hi, some idiots decided to kick my drivers side wing mirror off my car, i have a replacement but its just black, they didnt do any others on the website, i was wondering whether i could somehow swap over the back covers of the mirror from my old one and transfer it onto my new one so it matches the car? thanks
  2. its doesnt say for a focus ST170, and the parts for the st170 engine half the time are totally different to that of a normal 2.0 zetec engine, for example ST170 uses different spark plugs to that of a standard 2.0...my point is i would make sure its okay first mate
  3. Management light

    i have been readin up on the internet and apparently knock sensor failures can lead to internal engine damage that cant be repairable :o :( great!!! lol i got one of the faults sorted: B1600 - PATS Ignition Key Transponder Signal is Not Received so now got to deal with 2 these 2 !Removed!!!! P1538 Intake Manifold Runner Control Stuck Open P0325 - Knock Sensor 1 Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1) thing is im very low on cash lately (thanks to credit crunch! ) otherwise i would just tell fords too look at it and fix it regardless of how much, but unfortunatly cant do that no more so if anyone has the slightest clue or advice please by all means comment! thanks people
  4. Management light

    where is the knock sensor exactly? i wanna av a look lol
  5. Management light

    yes they did mate
  6. Management light

    you may of done actually lol, its a 54 plate so around late 2004 early 2005 but the car hasnt been right latley, if the car is sittin at about 2000rpm and i floor it, it stuggles too pick up, once its above about 4-5000 rpm it does go. the car seems sluggish latley :( ....ford told me that the knock sensor doesnt exist on a st170 but it does on the RS. i double checked the error codes and compared them on the internet and yes the st170 does have a knock sensor, i was lookin at some website some bloke has made about the ST170 and he has every ford part number for the car and it gives you a knock sensor, why would ford supply a knock sensor for a ST170 if it doesnt exist on the car :S:S
  7. Management light

    Yeah the last time the light was on they cleared the error codes, last time it was the lambda sensor but now got 3 error codes...helppppppp lol
  8. Management light

    Hi, my engine management light has come on again, ive had the codes read at kwikfit and come up with 3 fault codes :( they are as follows B1600 - PATS Ignition Key Transponder Signal is Not Received P1538 Intake Manifold Runner Control Stuck Open P0325 - Knock Sensor 1 Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1) -------- i rung ford gates and they told me "knock sensors" dont exist on a ST170 :S i havent got the slightest clue what any of these do on a car lol, if anyone can describe what they do and how they can be fixed would be great! its a Focus ST170 thanks
  9. now u mention it yeahh i think it is, how do i !Removed! stop it!
  10. mine does exactly the same, i fort is was due to needing a service, obviously i was wrong, if anyone knows why it does this then please let me know :D
  11. Helpp!!!! engine management light!!!

    i have covered it up with black tape but i havent taken it too ford yet, been low on money recently lol, but the pipe wasnt the cause of the engine management light too come on, its a faulty lambda sensor, will be getting a new one within the next few weeks then get that pipe replaced also :D
  12. Lambda sensor help!

    thanks mate, price doesnt sound too expensive lol, very happy with that, but how would i remove the lambda sensor, i looked at it last night and i can unplug one end of it but the actual sensor which plugs into the cat im not too sure about, i didnt wanna force it just in case i damage the cat or something
  13. Lambda sensor help!

    Hi, I found out what is causing the engine managment light too come on my car, its the lambda sensor. I was wonderin how much one of these would cost and if I could fit it my self. If so how do I do it? Its the pre cat lambda sensor on a focus st170 54 plate Cheers people
  14. What Wrong with my car!!????

    i found out what is wrong with my car, its the pre cat lambda sensor. i was wondering how much a new one of these would cost and whether i could just replace it instead of being charged loads at ford? thanks
