      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. Hi All, got a problem with my 2007 focus estate, 1.6TDCi Ghia. Battery warning light is on and battery is voltage is only showing @ 12. It is a Silver Calcium battery. Smart charge system looks to be operating properly and everything appears to be pointing to the alternator. (was showing 12.3 when running but is now down to 11.8 - 12.0. Shows around 11.2-11.5 when starting). Question is, how the hell do I get the alternator out to change it? As I look at the car, the alternator is on the front left, under what appears to be a collection of sensors and air intakes. Impossible to get at it from the bottom. Not a lot of room to work in at all. Any ideas? Ged
