  1. Found this a while ago from Ford regarding Start/Stop conditions. It may help clear it up for some people:- G0000115.pdf
  2. 2018 ST3 comes with power folding mirrors and puddle lights.
  3. Never used Battery Megastore but their prices look OK, and free next day delivery got to be worth a go, let us know if it all goes to plan.
  4. Cheapest place I've found for replacement Batteries is Tanya Batteries in Abergele for a Varta replacement you're looking at £108 plus £8 delivery:- https://www.tayna.co.uk/search/varta efb
  5. Re oil filters being tight, this YouTube video shows a guy changing Oil and Fuel filters on an ST 2.0 diesel and he tightens the new one up with a strap wrench. Reason the 2.0l diesel is the same basically as fitted to Taxis and they had problems with the filters dropping off when tightened by hand only, the video is worth a watch, but I personally would have filled the new filter with oil before I fitted it. :- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jCqY2a-uxtc
  6. If you want twin lamps you need to fit a small harness :- https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=ford+focus+mk3+twin+boot+lights&&view=detail&mid=4C4B7062B736A7DD53BD4C4B7062B736A7DD53BD&&FORM=VDRVRV PS the bloke that did the above video also has one showing how to make the harness, and quite a few others showing LED lighting upgrades on a RS Focus
  7. Just done the 3rd update this morning, Maps voice commands lost, Master Reset, Map voice commands back, then enabled WIFI on Sync scanned for updates, all up to date, checked on Ford website all up to date, None of the Update generated a log file but connecting Sync to WIFI seems to make it all happy. I await with bated breath the next update NOT.
  8. Same issues re 3 downloads on a Kuga forum I was just viewing, also some reports of loss of voice commands, only option appears to be a Master Reset of Sync3.
  9. Trying to download 8.9 GB file now but Ford's server has stopped responding twice.
  10. 8GB autoinstall.lst ; SYNC3 Consumer Application Upgrade - Release 3.0.21 - Only for Nav/EU assemblies. [SYNCGen3.0_3.0.19205] Item1 = JR3T-14G422-BD Open1 = SyncMyRide\JR3T-14G422-BD.tar.gz Item2 = JR3T-14G423-AB Open2 = SyncMyRide\JR3T-14G423-AB.tar.gz Options = Delay,Include,Transaction [SYNCGen3.0_ALL] Item1 = GB5T-14G386-AC Open1 = SyncMyRide\GB5T-14G386-AC.tar.gz Options = Delay,Include,Transaction
  11. Hi, long time reader, just signed up, Re F9 maps update, I did the 16GB update, then the 8Gb update maps showing as F9 no problems, website showed all up to date, like gillyallan I checked again this morning and there is another update of 8.9GB which I am now downloading. NOTE:- 16GB file is named Map_16595229754 8Gb file is named Map_8666062409 8.9GB file is named Map_8948362573 As you can see the 8GB and the 8.9 GB are not the same so maybe the 8Gb was the wrong one and has now been replaced by the right one.
