      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.

  1. Ford Focus Sport 2007 - Main Oil Seal Leak

    Garage has just told me that the job entails engine & gearbox out and flywheel off - approx £450 - all to replace a small oil seal! Mechanic mentioned that there is an oil additive which can "rejuvnate" oil seals - does anyone know of this "magic" additive!?
  2. Ford Focus Sport 2007 - Main Oil Seal Leak

    Thanks for that - looks like a garage job then!!
  3. I've just found out that I have a leak from the main engine oil seal! Haven't had a quote from garage to change it - is it a DIY job or am I wishful thinking!
  4. External/internal Digital Thermometer

    Thanks Micro, but I couldn't find any way through the loom! I've managed to thread the sensor bulb through the driver's door and snugged it under the front door pillar trim. Best Regards Jock
  5. External/internal Digital Thermometer

    Thanks - I'll look for it tomorrow.
  6. Hi all, I'm a bit stumped as to how I feed the external bulb for this thermometer outside the cab! I can't find any way through to the engine compt to give a true outside temperature reading. Any suggestions will be very welcome! Thanks Jock
  7. Checking Gearbox Oil 2007 Tdci

    Thanks martin - I always thought that gearbox oil was a different type to engine oil (HP/EP). Do you know if I can do an oil level check without removing covers underneath? Many thanks. Jock
  8. Checking Gearbox Oil 2007 Tdci

    Hi All - this may sound like a stupid question but last week had my Focus in for a 1 year service & oil change and was told that the rear gearbox oil seal was weeping oil. I asked how do I check the oil level and was told that it is combined with the engine oil and the engine oil dipstick shows the level in both engine & gearbox!! This sounded alien to me but not being up on modern motors I thought I'd seek the wisdom of fellow Focus owners! Mnay thanks in advance. Jock
  9. Dan At Adrian Flux

    Hi Dan - just to say thanks for an easy and effortless transaction with Adrian Flux - I was called back within a day and am now one of your customers! Cheers Jock
  10. Dan At Adrian Flux

    Hi Dan - I'm in the process of buying a Focus 1.8TDCi next week and attempted to complete the online form using the link provided to Adrian Flux. It appears to throw a wobbly when I state my occupation as "Retired"! Maybe best if I talk to human! Who shall I ring? Cheers Jock
  11. Ford Duetto (Transit) Rear Loudspeaker

    Thanks all - local Ford dealer recognised the FINIS code but then wanted £32+VAT for a single L/S! Bought a pair of 30 watt Pioneers for a tenner and fitted them! Now have music at back of van.
  12. Hi All - Does anyone know where I can get a replacement rear speaker for a Transit Duetto camper van. The markings on the duff one are: 95 BP 18808 BB followed by BF201. It's elliptical 7.5" x 5" and rated at 20 watts. I've tried the local Ford dealer who doesn't recognise the number. Failing that is there any compatible speakers from another Ford model? Many thanks in advance. Jock
