  1. I know 2 different keys. And yes SO stupid design!! I will have to get used to it for now. Just recently had an MOT done on my car, might be keeping the car for another year or just sell it to make some money out of it. Nah my battery cradle is all good thanks lol
  2. Hi Stephen. An other update. Yeah thought about that when my new key barrel turned up earlier today in the post, my dad bought it for me anyway for just £24.95 from ebay. I decided to just fit the new key barrel system and use the key with it to open the bonnet and I have now solved my issue. Don't fancy messing with the key barrel pin slots thanks, sound like a pain in the *****! I will keep my old barrel with me handy anyway as for spares. will it have any affect e.g. during a MOT? also my original key barrel somehow had 2 pins missing out of it after owning the hole car for nearly 10 years. hence replacing the small cross plastic bit, tried re-fitted it back into my car and the original key barrel no longer operate the latch properly! jobs a gooden 😀
  3. Hi Stephen. Just a little update on my problem... 1. I now have a new plastic cross section and try it out inside the latch mech and the key barrel. My current key barrel is well used anyway. 2. My Dad has bought a new key barrel for me from ebay. Just hope it will work out fine for me until it comes in the post. keeping my fingers crossed.
  4. One word... Nice lol Enjoyed the t-bar moment 😁
  5. Found a solution to my problems. hope this may help for you others out there 😀
  6. Hi. Does anyone have a simple solution to open the bonnet up without using the key...? I can no longer use my key to open the bonnet up. Hope to hear from you guys soon. Thank you.
  7. Ha haa. Na, I'm one of those people that I want everything to be done perfectly without messing things up. I'd rather just simply solder the printed circuit board where the connection is loose from the cluster unit is, that's all there is to it really and you put it all back together and plug it back into your dashboard and reset the unit.
  8. Just for bit of an update news on my Car which is a 1.4 Petrol which is also 14 years old. Its now at a local TCH garage. But when I went in last night before rush hour traffic, they said for the first hour they were charging me £66 for the investigation and an further hour or so they are charging me £101.00, so My Dad was with me at the time and he said to the woman at the service Desk saying "***** Hell it's like BET365!!" Anyways more to the point, a very genuine guy came from the workshop to explain to me and my Dad the fault may could be some loose connection from the Cluster unit or loose wires etc (as where I live the roads are just BAD and Bumpy as hell). So I let him carry on with the job within his hand for the time being I will have to see what the other or some verdict be for tomorrow or Friday for me to pick it up without them charging me even more money, robbing sods. Oh plus another thing that was so cheeky the woman mentioned to me and my Dad from last night was that my car is 14 years old you should just scrap it. I was thinking in the back on my mind saying Er No...! Just so frustrating!
  9. Hi Kevin. Interesting, this is also happening to me as well... where about's is the throttle cable is located say on my car on a 2006 Focus...? I have booked my car to go into a TC Harrisons Ford Garage in my local town next week on Tuesday to have looked into. I'm just hoping I don't have to pay too much at a cost of an arm and a leg 😭 .
  10. Hello. Does anyone know how to edit or/and delete photo's in your own albums section in my profile account...?
  11. Hello to you all to those who might be reading this...? I own a 2006 LX Ford Focus 1.4 Petrol. More to the story, If for anyone had a similar problem with their Cluster Unit having a intermittent fault with all the lights coming on and can't start the engine etc. Simply because this has happened on my car so far this week and its been so frustrating all the along. So I thought I better dig-in and I went on Youtube and I have found this 😊
  12. That's cool, a very useful link 🙂 Thank you Nick.
  13. I have tried playing with both outside and inside door handles and the door does not open at all, like no joke. So what your saying is, that will I have to for example take off the door interior panel to get to the locking mech...?
  14. Hello. Can anyone kindly help me out here...? I want to be able to fix a rear left passenger side door on my Mother's 2005 Mondeo Hatchback in which no longer opens from the outside and inside of the car. Any solutions...? Thanks.
