      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      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. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Thanks for that, those are like the ones I'm looking at, even the listing on that one says "FORD FOCUS HATCHBACK / SEDAN 2009-2011" sorry about caps just copied it, so it will still fit pfl? Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  2. Quick question guys, I want to fit a reversing camera while I have the carpets and seats out. Looking at the the type that are attached to a clear number plate light lens but can only see ones advertised as face lift versions, anyone know if the lenses on the pfl and facelift are the same or do they differ?

  3. Faulty Shock Absorber? Mk2 Focus St

    It's the passenger side this time.....funny you say that though I had to have the drivers side done for the MOT last year. Having taken the wheel off today all the symptoms you mention are there. Can only see this "crease" (for want of a better word). Didn't want to pull it about and make it worse, but I think that's where it's coming from. attachment=26181:ImageUploadedByFord OC1427542995.946267.jpg] Inner is starting to look suspect so will have both done.

    Thanks for the advice will try that and post up the result tomorrow. Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  5. Faulty Shock Absorber? Mk2 Focus St

    Thanks for the response, I agree with you, my first thought was CV...just never seen a shocker go so wasn't sure. It's a Bilstein B12 Pro kit which I believe uses gas shocks so would they have grease or a fluid of some sort in anyway? Going to take another look with better light tomorrow.

  6. Just been fitting new spacers all round on the car and noticed this on the front near side, can't see a split anywhere in the CV gaiter you guys think it's come from the shocker? There is a load of grease on the bottom of it but that could of course sprayed upwards. They are brand new Bilstein shockers Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  7. Not been before, but know the pub and don't live too far away, looking to get back into meets etc, wouldn't be a bad start Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC

  10. Front Lights On When I Brake

    Grey plug is disconnected, I have cluster brake lights...... I undid the rubber that goes from roof to tailgate, there are two broken and melted wires in there, a green with yellow stripe which I think is high level brake light and green with blue stripe which I think is heated rear screen.... So I believe problem is solved!!!! The grey multiplug is isolating the tailgate wiring then is that right... That being the case im ok to drive and visit either ford or scrappy to try and aquire a new loom for rear. Roger cant THANK YOU enough your help has been brilliant and has kept me sane lol, also saved me a fortune with calling out an auto electrician.
  11. Front Lights On When I Brake

    before I disconnected the rear multiplugs the wires leading into the light switch were very hot (too hot). I disconnected the blue plug fuse blew, reconnected and removed the grey plug, all ok with no heat in the light switch wiring, so problem is at rear of the car? looking at the grey multiplug there is a green wire with yellow stripe, it appears to have fused itslef to a couple of other wires where it has touched them. Anyone know what this wire operates?
  12. Front Lights On When I Brake

    With all brake lights unplugged it blows fuses the second I touch the brake pedal. I removed the brake plunger mechanism and inserted a wire to both contacts to complete the circuit still blows so plunger itself is ok.......any ideas? It also seems to have blown the light switch fuse again.
  13. Front Lights On When I Brake

    Scrap that, multi plug in passenger foot well is fine, has to be screwed in to make connection......school boy error!!!! Rear indicators and sidelights including reg lights are ok. I havent attempted to insert another fuse into brake system yet.....
  14. Front Lights On When I Brake

    ok...... I made up a simple light bulb circuit as suggested, went to the multiplug at the rear, all dead. I believe (please correct me if im wrong) these then connect through the car to another main plug at the front passenger footwell underneath some trim. At this point they are live. (Bulb lit up and flashed for hazards) So I THINK the wiring loom is ok at least to here, and there is a break from the plug in the footwell to the plug at the rear of the car? That make sense?
  15. Front Lights On When I Brake

    I havent mate, just switched hazards on to check, these do not work on rear either, so safe to assume I have nothing on working on the rear of the car?
