      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.

    Focus 1.6 zetec
  1. Focus Zetec Uncomfortable Seats

    I've tried the lumbar support and that just makes it worse. I've tried lots of combinations of angle, height, reach but still get this feeling of something pushing into my lower back. Haven't been a passenger yet, but the seat shape looks the same. Perhaps if i had gone for the Style rather than the Zetec, it would have been different - shame as it's a nice car to drive in all other respects.
  2. I've recently bought a brand new Focus Zetec 1.6 (not the new model) and am wondering if I've made a huge mistake because I just cannot get comfortable in the driver's seat. I am 6 ft tall and there seems to be a bulge near the bottom of the seatback that is too high for the small of my back, but too low for any lumbar support - it just sticks into my lower back and feels really uncomfortable from about 5 minutes into any journey. I did a lengthy test drive in a second hand Focus (not sure if it was a Zetec) and had no problem with the seat and had no problems with my previous Mondeo LX which I owned for 8 years. Is it just me, is there anything I can do about it?
