  1. Yeah i know right, its because they will charge an hours labour minimum! hmmmm any help would be appreciated
  2. evening all, trying to retrofit the CC to my 2009 focus. i have all the switches in the harness and added the buttons, done the heated screen test and the buttons do work! ive activated it in the HEC and the GEM but it still doesnt work! im guessing it needs activating in the PCM aswell? does anybody know if i can activate it myself without going to fords as all my local ones want minimum £90 and had no idea what i was talking about :/ Thanks

  5. Loss Of Mpg.

    try re-setting the ECU? unplug the battery for 30 mins then plug it back in. keep your radio code to hand! thats not good mpg though! im getting more than that from my 1.8 petrol!!!
  6. The Zetec S Needs An Exhaust Tip...

    by the looks of yours it seems it will sit alot further towards the N/S of the car. hence yours has a kink and mine is straight. id check it will fit properly under the ZS diffuser before making any cuts!

    mine... at rear axle
  8. The Zetec S Needs An Exhaust Tip...

    do it yourself mate, i done mine! although the pipe on my tip was longer ( went to the rear axel) but just unclip your exiting exhaust from the hangar behind the bumper, insert the new tip and that will give you a cut line, then cut the exhaust, (exhaust cutters are good) then a bit of sealing paste and a 'U' clamp and jobs a goodun.. i would expect a exhaust place to charge a min of £50 just for their time...

    yeah, well to be honest the ford CF6000 isnt that bad!, its internal amp is pretty decent and still shakes the car with the bass :) plus it seems to have a safety shut off for the speakers so that when it gets too loud it just stops the volume going any higher!

    just ebay mate, same as these http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/4x-501-T10-W5W-LED-WHITE-XENON-Look-sidelight-bulbs-UK-/280631984179?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item4156f84033 yeah the harness is really good! saved me hundreds of pounds on a new sterio / hacking into the cars wiring! and only costs about £20 ish to make.

    yeah i had to cut it back to over the rear axel and yeah at the time it was specifically made by powerflow for the ZS, but now you can pick them up off ebay/ other places.. similar to this http://www.european-parts.net/catalog/product_info.php/cPath/58_82/products_id/432

  13. New Member And My Zetec S
