      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. Removing Rear Seats Mk 2.5 To Fit Isofix

    I did it my self without taking backrests out, just lift bottom of the seat up. I used torx socket, extension and a ratchet to push some foam on backrest in while !Removed!, tried with L shaped torx first but didn't feel tight enough.
  2. Acceleration Issues

    I had similar problem with mine 1.8tdci, stuttered on several occasions, eventually putting it in limp mode with engine malfunction light on. Brought it to the garage I bought it from, they plugged it to tge computer to find dodgy injector, which they replaced under warranty. Didn't happen ever since. So maybe get it plugged to the computer also.

  6. How To Remove Big Black Scrape

    Hi guys, I let my wife drive the car last night and she came back with a black scar running all the way on the side of the car. Apparently she caught another car's mirror and the plastic must have rubbed off onto my car. It's not dented or scratched, will t-cut remove it or is there something better than that?

  9. Focus Mk2 & Mk2.5 Footwell Lights

    Just had a look through elmconfig in offline mode and didn't see option to turn these lights on... any suggestions? I rather keep it 'factory made' but will consider putting led strips in footwells and under seats at a later stage.
