      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. Na left that off, assume that's whats causing the noise although I'm learning to quite like it now :) I'll see what I can do Lenny
  2. Have been debating whether to get a K&N filter for a while, and after reading this decided to just bite the bullet and do it. Bought a 57S-4000 with new airbox lid (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/57S-4000-K-N-PERFORMANCE-INTAKE-KIT-FORD-VOLVO-VARIOUS-2007-2013-/281067319470?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item4170eaf0ae) and fitted it this morning. Haven't really tested it properly yet, but have driven up and down the road a full times and so far the throttle is certainly more responsive, and it makes a very loud whooshing noise on acceleration which I can't tell if it's cool or annoying yet haha.
  3. Speedo Not Working And Car Cutting Out.

    Not sure about the clutch, but the speedo/stalling issue is very common on the MK1 and MK1.5 such as yours. If I remember correctly, it's a faulty speed sensor that causes it. Not too expensive (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-FOCUS-SPEED-SPEEDO-SENSOR-1998-2004-TOP-QUALITY-1087548-NEW-SS1-/150731145659?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item231846c1bb), and I think you can fit it yourself but don't quote me on it.
  4. Number Plate Bulbs

    Yeah that's what I read somewhere, but couldn't for the life of me get it out. Pushing the screwdriver in just broke the clip, and no amout of wiggling seemed to help unfortunately. Thanks for the info though, might give it another bash tomorrow!
  5. Number Plate Bulbs

    I tried to change mine but could never get the !Removed! bulb holders out :( Managed to prize both lights from the boot lid a fair way, but never enough to get the original bulbs out. Had to give up in the end.
  6. Changing Front Foglight Bulb.

    Easiest just to remove the front panels. Gently prize open a gap with a screwdriver (or something else flat) and just give them a good pull. Changed both my fog lights in 10 minutes.
  7. Ford Focus Sat Nav Unit

    Sorry if this sounds stupid, but how did you remove the trim piece covering the windscreen column? And how did you get the wire from the radio to the top of the dash? I'm crap at this as you can tell :)

    Where abouts did you put the GPS antenna?
  9. Mk1 Speedo Issue

    Had this on my old MK1. Sold it in the end, but I hear all you need is a new speed sensor. The speedo used to die on mine, often followed by the car stalling.
  10. Mk2.5 Aftermarket Head Units

    Cheers for that :)
  11. Mk2.5 Aftermarket Head Units

    I was looking at getting that... where did you put the GPS antenna?
