    FOcus 1.8 tdci
  1. Cabin Noise 1.8 Tdci Style 57

    Thanks for that - its not wind noise, definitely engine noise ie can hear more of the engine than in our 1.6 or friends 1.8 53 reg
  2. Cabin Noise 1.8 Tdci Style 57

    I have the above car and to be honest its quite a noisy car, quite a bit of engine noise within the cabin. Went in a colleagues 53 1.8 tdci and was completely different, could hardly hear a thing, which is similar driving experience to our other 1.6 tdci zetec 58 reg. Wondered if my 1.8 noise is normal for that age/model/engine, ie was noise muffling skimped on or was the engine not a great one, or should I get a dealer opinion? Any comments appreciated
  3. Hello buddy :) The best thing to do if you are unsure is to get on youtube or google dash removal and type what car you have and it will show you how to diy it, Its sounds like it could be loads of things but the quickest way to deal with any problem is to iron out the ones it could be as you can have 150 things its not but only 1 that is causing it, Start off by removing the glove box, :)

  11. Vibrating Noise

    I have a 57 reg Focus 1.8 TDCI. Have also got a 1.6 58 dpf version as well. Have a noise when coming off revs on the 1.8, hard to explain, kind of like a metallic vibration. Dealer said it was engine cover laying on air con pipe and they had sorted (but they havent) Anyone got any ideas what it might be, or whether it is normal on the 1.8. My 1.6 is a completely diff sounding engine
