      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. Focus Leaking Power Steering

    Hi bumping this old thread as I think I am having the same problem, i have a high pitch whirring noise coming from the drivers side of the car where the belts are, first I thought it was the alternator but after reading abit more I think the noise might be from the belt being covered in oil, the noise started of just being occasionally but now it is all the time, it increases with the revs and also when I turn the steering wheel. Took a couple of pics of the pipe above and as you can see the lower pipe under the alternator is cover in oil suggesting a slow leak,I think my fluid is also lower than it used to be but it is still at the "cold" mark in the reservoir. Surprise surprise my focus is a 1.6 also. I have attached a couple of pictures of the pipe, best I could get, would someone be able to confirm this is the problem. Cheers

    Thanks for your help Gary, I'll try an unplug my rear fog on my dinner and get a picture of the connection to compare with the one above
  3. Fitting Zetec S Rear Bumper On Mk2

    Two contradicting answers for the rears so still unsure on that. Yeah the ST bumper has the brackets and fogs fitted. Glad that's just a straight swap. Anyone else know about the rears? Thanks Chaps
  4. I know the bumper from the Zetec S Mk2.5 will be a straight fit on the Mk2 its the fogs/reverse light im unsure about. Can anyone tell me if they are a straight plug n play or if some splicing of wires will be required? Also I'm having a Mk2 St front bumper fitted, comes complete with fog surrounds an holders. Will this be a straight changeover of bulbs an plugging in? Thanks
  5. Mpg - Your Experiences

    I’ve just got an average of 32.7mpg from my 1.6 100ps. Mostly stop start driving on A and B roads doing shortish journeys (no more than 10 miles at a time). Car is in need of a service too so hopefully the figures will improve after that. I used this website for my calculations http://www.fuel-economy.co.uk/calc.shtml
