  1. How about a set of these: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Tinted-Acrylic-Window-Heko-Deflectors/dp/B06WP7LM5D/ref=sr_1_fkmr1_1?keywords=mk2.5+Focus+wind+deflectors&qid=1555506406&s=gateway&sr=8-1-fkmr1
  2. My concern is more about the EU wanting more and more control over our lives. As time goes on our ability to make choices is being removed. More and more governments are making what were choices law. I think it is ok for them to inform and educate on issues like this and introduce technology that warns us, but not restrict our ability to make choices in life. Obviously I don't include things like carrying knives or breaking existing laws. There must be a line where we are not drawn into becoming robots to the powers that be.
  3. Probably the battery has died. These days they don't often give you any indication of impending failure. They just fail.
  4. I used to have a Focus Sport. I fitted the Zetec S grill on it as it was so much nicer than the standard. However, I really like Wilto's conversion.
  5. Wont you also need the self level adjusters and headlight washers to make legal?
  6. I'm really happy with the quality of my 312GW. I have hardwired it in and replaced the silly sucker fitment with a stick on one. Gets a decent picture night or day.
  7. Have you tied changing the expansion tank cap? That may not be holding the full level of pressure and should be changed fairly regularly anyway.
  8. No idea. F7 is supposed to be 2018/19 and works fine on my 2015 ST.
  9. This would be the maps you need. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/NEW-LATEST-FORD-2018-2019-F7-SYNC2-SD-CARD-SAT-NAV-MAP-EUROPE-UPDATE-FOCUS-KUGA/382754346697?epid=9026644590&hash=item591defd6c9:g:ASgAAOSw2fpcTzpj The SD Card is in the arm rest.
  10. Have you checked the carpets for damp? It might indicate where the leak is coming from.
  11. Before you spend a load, try changing the expansion tank cap. If its not holding the pressure it will overheat and the electric fan is unlikely to kick in due to there being hot and cold spots in the engine. The coolant will not circulate properly. Failing that, check the expansion tank for cracks or leaks and then move onto the thermostat. The plastic housing has a tendancy to warp after so many years. Good luck.
  12. I know what you mean. You should have it now. Cheers
  13. Get the cold air intake from a 2.0 Auto. It is far better positioned than the normal intake for more air. Also check to see if the wiring for the front fogs is behind the blanking covers. If they are you just need the fogs and the switch. The wiring was already in place on the Mk1 I owned many years ago. May not be the same for the Mk1.5.
  14. I had the same symptoms on a car I owned years ago. It was the top mount on the shock. The wear had left some play in it. Only clonked on surfaces that were a little uneven.
  15. Pretty sure its 85 you should piggy back with. I'm sure that's the one I connected mine to. Only powers up when the ignition is on.
