  2. Wheel Bearing Kit + Headache

    Ok recently i have been getting annoyed with a horrible sound from my focus :( i took it to National Tyres (NEVER AGAIN!!!) and they say its the Drivers shaft and Wheel Bearings and quoted £450... i priced it all up at Eurocp and 132 for the parts at this point cowboy national tyres can do one. me being me a money saving !Removed! thought ok lets take it to Kwik fit who diagnosed it with it just being the Wheel bearings... GOOD perfect ok i will buy this kit then from EuroCP. a mechanic that was reccomended to me from my mum now says that the SNR bearings are crap and not worth the pennies. http://www.eurocarparts.com/ecp/c/Ford_Focus_1.6_2002/p/car-parts/car-transmission/transmission-parts/wheel-bearing-and-wheel-hub/?628590230&1&026206a25365719ad627d0397522edd7cca9ad49&WBRK can someone shed some light PLEASE :) and if you know any mechanics in the Warrington area that would be PERFECT !
  3. Focus Elle + 0 Ncb + Only Just Passed

    No that would be in the instructors car. i got a good quote from Ford and taken it out with them, they offer some decent perks. and they will knock 400£ off when i pass my passplus, so its on me to sort it out.

  6. Rear wiper has stopped working :( in these days of real bad rain, it suddenly stopped working, i have replaced the fuse under the glove compartment and still nading, phoned the garaeg and they say it sounds like the motor gone kaput. Checked the haynes manual and no information on how to replace. Thought one of you brainiacs will know :) and how much they should cost.

    Ok, 1 month since buying my Focus, i have settled in a removed some things i didn't want when purchasing (tint windows etc). im in the need of a Few things but need a little help how to replace and where to buy them from. The pedals are in need of glaming up lol. they just look really tatty, i have heard that the car will fail a MOT if the correct ones are not put on the car. The Dashboard where the cd player is needs replacing, the previous owner butchered the outside of where the original cd player was. i just dont know where to get a replacement or how easy it is to replace.
