      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one.

The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Diy Air Con Pump

    Lo all. I was hoping I could ask a question. The air-conditioning pump has gone on my 2002 1.8TDci Focus. I could take it to a garage but I'm having a hard time finding one I can trust. The local Ford dealer can't even figure out how to employ people to answer phones, so doesn't inspire much confidence. One local indepentant garage has already screwed me, and I'm not eager to let another one do the same... HAving worked on my motorcycles and done basic maintenance on the cars, I've never had air-con before. Are air-con pumps something I could change, save for the gas recharging which I could take it to Kwik Fit For? Any help appreciated. Alex.
  2. Drums To Discs

    I'd love to know about this too, I've got a 1.8 Diesel Focus and have thought about doing the exact same thing.
  3. Detachable Tow Bars

    Lovely, thank you Mintalkin. I like the look of that Bosal system, I hadn't seen it even though I had been to Towequip before! I'll call now. Thanks. Al.
  4. Detachable Tow Bars

    Hello all. I was wondering if anyone has fitted or used a detachable tow bar on a Focus?. I've got a 2002 1.8 TDCi and a 14" dinghy and I'd like them to play with each other. I've looked at the permanent kits and they are the default choice for ease as well as cost. As long as we'v had cars, though, I've hated the bruises on my shins from inadvetantly hitting them on the tow bars of the cars we've had. The Witter detachable towbar system looks handy, and I'm sure that it's safe enough, but I wondered if anyone had any experience of them in this country. I can't seem to see any kits for cars older than 2005, but I'll call the company tomorrow and have a word. Any help appreciated. Al.
