      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.

    I worked on it this morning and successfully changed the bulb. A bit of messing about and I agree that its so silly to make it that difficult. But wanted to say thanks for all your help. Phil

    Thanks very much, thats a great help. I will have a go tomorrow. Phil
  3. Hi All Found out that my Headlamp bulb on drivers side has gone. Bought a new set of bulbs and had problems taking the light fitting out to replace the bulb. Any one had similar troubles. Is it easy and I am just getting to old or am I missing something. I normally just take a bulb out and put a new one in, but it does not seem that simple now. My Focus is a W reg 2000 1.8 tdi. Phil
  4. Really appreciate your replies and will look into this. Phil
  5. Hi all I have a Ford Focus 1.8 diesil hatchback W reg. Just had it in for an M.O.T. and it has come back with: All brake pipes to be replaced due to corrosion. one rear wishbone to be fixed. two tyres replace brake pads. Quote of Garage: £900+ Just wanted to know what other people think of this, as it has come at the wrong time. Just had major surgery and cannot go to another garage to check the costs. Any help would be appreciated. I am not a genius with cars, but get worried about MOT repairs. Love the car though and due to my disabilty, it is perfect in every other way for me to drive comfortably. Kind regards Phil
