      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. 1.8 Tdci Focus, Self Service?

    Ok will do! Although I do have a Pela 6000 oil extractor pump that I use for servicing my smart fortwo (no sump drain plug, oil has to be sucked up through dip stick). Could I use that on the focus to perhaps? Or even just to get the last bit out?
  2. 1.8 Tdci Focus, Self Service?

    Ignore my last message lol Just checked the Mobil web site, entered my reg and thats the oil it came up with! Seems a good price?
  3. 1.8 Tdci Focus, Self Service?

    Cheer's again! Just another quickie, my owners manual says to use 5W-30 oil. Is this suitable? http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_storeId_10001_catalogId_10151_productId_723401_langId_-1_categoryId_165581#tab3
  4. 1.8 Tdci Focus, Self Service?

    Yeah, just oil & filters really. It had all new pads & disc 18 months ago & had a major service then, so it should be ok. Any good guide's for changing the fuel filter & pollen filter? Or best leave those for the garage? Cheers again :-)
  5. 1.8 Tdci Focus, Self Service?

    Hi Guys, We have a 02 plate 1.8 TDCi Focus that is waaaaay overdue a service, but I just cannot afford to get this done at a garage. Are these cars easy for the DIY mechanic? lol I'm reasonably ok, and managed to service my old mini & change points/carb etc years ago. Are Ford pretty reasonable on service items like the filters etc? And do you recommend a Haynes manual? Always helpful with the mini :-) Thanks John
