      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. Help With Aux Belt Type?

    I have a Feb 2009 Focus 1.8 HE petrol on a 58 reg 34k miles. The aux belt is squeaking when cold so Im intending to swap the belt. Can anyone tell me if this would be a finis part no 1517566 or has it been superseded as mentioned here: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-1-8i-2-0i-08-10MY-PETROL-AUXILLARY-V-BELT-1249MM-1517566-SUFFOLK-SAAB-LTD-/330860516168 I have read on forums in the US Good Year Gatorback belts are a good cure but should it be a newer stretchy type? My own research suggests the correct one would be 6PK1250. Any thoughts?
  2. Hi all. I have a problem when coming to a stop, when I press the clutch down as slowing to a stop the revs drop down to about 500 then rise to around 1500 several times before settling, occasionally it wil stall. It will start up again without problem, power seems fine when driving. Its a focus 2.5 1.8 duratech 2009 with 36k on the clock, any ideas?
