  1. Water in engine bay

    Just wondering if anyone else gets water collecting on the battery cover, it seems to leak through the plastic screw, the windscreen was replaced before I got the can so just wondering if it was put back together wrong (or it's a rubbish design) P.s only noticed it after successfully changing the diesel filter, thanks to tho's who helped in my other thread
  2. Mk3 diesel filter

    I have been putting it off tbh it was Last done 30,000 miles ago at the Ford dealer, I'll be starting this first thing on a morning to give me plenty of time
  3. Mk3 diesel filter

    The time has come for me to have a crack at changing the diesel filter on my 2014 mk3 1.6tdci, I've been reading up on the procedure and it looks simple enough(I've heard these engines can be a nightmare to get started after a filter change) so I have decided to invest in a priming hand pump. (would 10mm be ok? I've been looking at filers to order and eurocarparts list it as a filter insert https://www.eurocarparts.com/ecp/c/Ford_Focus_1.6_2014/p/car-parts/filters/engine-parts/fuel-filters/?503590489&1&f0938289dcb6f23bb1d449867b862dede2f51c62&000140 But when I've been looking on eBay I have come across ones with a full housing on them. Here's a pic of my engine, if someone could point me In the right direction that would be brill :)

  9. Mk3 focus centre console rubber

    Good idea, might have a look at that if I can't find the part, I've been looking on ebay at rubber grommets sets to see if something like that might fit
  10. I've had my mk3 focus for a few months now and since day one the arm rest has been annoying me, it feels loose and after a bit of looking around I've noticed the little round rubber cushion are missing. Does anyone know the part number or an equivalent I could use? I've attached a picture of what's missing from my arm rest, any advice would be appreciated. Thanks

  13. MK3.5 Power Wing Mirror Issue

    Yes definitely gonna have to do the same to mine they sound terrible like they are struggling and I doubt freezing weather is going to help them. Are they easy enough to open up I haven't really had the time to have a proper look,is it just a case of popping the cover off and the mechanism is exposed? Thanks
  14. MK3.5 Power Wing Mirror Issue

    While you guys are on the topic of power fold mirrors I'm just curious do you ever grease the folding parts of the mirror. I've just bought a mk3 with power fold mirrors and they sound like they are struggling to open and close ,thinking of giving them a blast of spray grease
