  1. Plenty of different sizes on ebay, just type in red rubber grease https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2505460.m570.l1311.R1.TR5.TRC1.A0.H1.TRS0&_nkw=red+rubber+grease&_sacat=0
  2. Tayna is a good website. You don't say what your engine is, so you'll have to look it up yourself. You can do it by your Reg. No. Just double-check the size against your current battery: https://www.tayna.co.uk/car-batteries/
  3. If you want 25 of them!! £43.99 😂 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Genuine-Ford-Mondeo-MK1-MK2-C-Max-Focus-MK2-Rear-Knuckle-Arms-Bolt-x25-1539719/273533824820?hash=item3fafe2ef34:g:Y2oAAOSwWXFb2FpS Hendy are doing them at £2.03 each + postage. Says there may be a delay in posting. May be worth a phone call to check? https://www.hendyeshop.co.uk/bolt-f1539719-36520-p.asp
  4. Post a picture of your car and we'll know what Mk it is.
  5. My upside is, battery voltage/charging is good, and have toilet rolls and hand sanitiser, downside is, i'm over 70!! ☹️
  6. Best to contact the person you "received" it from.
  7. Still leaves the hatch keyless, see #5 https://www.focusstoc.com/forums/topic/563443-disabling-some-conveniences/?hl=%2Bkeyless+%2Bentry

    Music on USB

    I have a 2016 ST with SYNC 2. I can play my own music:- - via either the armrest or dashboard USB ports. Recording is in Mp3 / 320Kbps and 86GB on a 128GB micro SD card, using a USB adapter. - via my Android Nokia phone, using the same micro SD card, either via Bluetooth or Android Auto. However, as I generally just have music for "background" noise, I generally listen to Radio Gold, streamed through the TuneIn Radio App via Android Auto. Usually have Waze running as well, as it gives warning of upcoming potholes ( providing a Waze user has reported them!).
  9. Unfortunately, it would appear that Ford, for many people, haven't worked it out yet! Short journeys with our Citroen, produce a similar problem, though to a lesser degree. It appears that one of the many operating parameters of Start/Stop systems, is that there must be a high % of charge in the battery before it will work (I believe Citroen must be above 70+%). When you take into account the amount of amps it takes to start a car, plus heater/blower fan, aircon, heated screens/seats, etc., it's no wonder short journeys don't replace all that is used. Obviously, not using a car on a regular basis + short journeys, helps to exasperate the problem.
  10. That's not enough mileage to put in a good charge. If you're normally only doing short runs, the battery charge % will still be way down. Get a decent battery charger for a Start/Stop battery, fully charge it, and then see what happens. If you still have problems, it's highly likely your battery needs replacing. With short journeys, you need to be using a battery charger every few weeks, as car batteries are not meant to have a low discharge for long periods of time.
  11. I think these may be same/similar (HS2): https://ford.7zap.com/en/car/50/1.36201,2.44091,4.13480,6.38101/0/1734/16290/71084/#HS2 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Genuine-Ford-Dash-Panel-Front-Fenders-Screw-Washer-1382602/272721111959?fits=Car+Make%3AFord&hash=item3f7f71eb97:g:UJEAAOSwjyhaMQRg
  12. Nylon sleeve, to prevent wheel damage, like this: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Alloy-Nylon-Sleeve-Car-Wheel-Nut-1-2inch-Drive-Socket-Air-Impact-Laser-Tool-17mm/123931448443?hash=item1cdae3d47b:g:NqsAAOSwLP9dmvzt

    Etis Ford

    Those are your car's "Minor Features", I posted above. Go to your car in Etis, highlight, copy, and paste the following 4 lines to a Word document, using the "Keep Source Formatting (K)", and the Minor Features list should appear. Worked for me: Minor Features Less Roof Line Conversion Front Door Scuff Plates - Ford Oval There are more minor features for this vehicle, click to expand this list.
