  1. Repair question for door hinge area

    Hi Dan, Yeah sure that would be great! What kind of damage did you have? I'm in Beckton, East London. The car isn't drivable like this so I'd have to get it transported anyway so Enfield wouldn't be a problem.
  2. Repair question for door hinge area

    Thanks for the replies! Got a picture of the damages side. Trying to think about how to go about getting this in for repairs at the moment. Can't open the door any further
  3. So my car took a knock recently on the passenger side and the lower door hinge has been pushed into the body of the car i.e. the frame of the car has gone inwards under the pressure. I've attached a picture of the drivers side for reference but where the lower hinge sits it's no longer flat like in the picture. The rest of the surrounding frame is fine...just that one area has sort of caved under the pressure of the hinge when it got it. My question is since its the cars frame itself that is dented how much would a repair like that cost? Is it super expensive? Thanks!
  4. Ford Focus mk2 hatchback automatic boot

    I'm fairly certain what you are seeing there is stronger compression springs. This is how to do it... http://www.fordwiki.co.uk/index.php?title=Automatic_boot_opening_Mondeo_Mk3
  5. Thanks! It turns out its steel. Have just received delivery and it seems to be a good quality part at least.
  6. Hi, I was recently involved in a low speed crash and the passenger side door and front wing took damage. I'd like to replace the wing and found this on ebay... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FOCUS-MK4-08-11-FRONT-WING-PASSENGERS-SIDE-LEFT-NEARSIDE-/221441671214?fits=Car+Make%3AFord%7CModel%3AFocus&hash=item338ef3c02e:g:928AAOxynwlTdiAY Are these parts suitable to use? Isn't the original wing a metal part and I'm assuming this is some sort of GRP or something. Would this be ok to use as a replacement? thanks!
  7. Hi Lenny,

    Quick question....you once purchased this wheel well filler pad for your focus and I was wondering if you had a part number or would be able to tell how you bought it. I can't seem to find them anywhere online. Hoping you can help!




    1. Lenny



      It's a spare wheel insert came as standard on the mk1 Focus RS model, 

      Perhaps contact fordpartsuk.com to purchase as I've no part number mate sorry.

      Okay no problem. Thanks...I'll contact them and see what they say.

  8. Custom Sized Number Plate

    Ahh sorry I didn't realise show plates for sale here in the UK were illegal! I just presumed it was ok as long as they were only used at events etc
  9. Custom Sized Number Plate

    Went with ProRegPlates in the end...used their Showplate designer and just added the legal details such as BS Mark at the bottom myself. Can recommend them if you want a totally custom sized number plate like mine which is 430mm x 135mm that you can make online using their designer...delivery was fast too!

    Does anyone know when this will be back?!
  11. Hi, Can someone confirm for me what these plugs are for? I know 3 and 4 are for front and rear windscreens. Is 5 for ESP button? And the others? Thanks! This next one is behind the glove compartment. I know 1 is for AUX input but what's 2 for?
  12. Custom Sized Number Plate

    Thanks @salsheikh. I'll fire off a few messages to some of the online sellers! The honeycomb grills look fantastic @wilto...I've seen very few pictures of these fitted to a Zetec S. Can't wait for some daylight to fit them myself! I also got the gloss black fog surrounds too which were seemingly thrown in for free...hopefully they will all set off my white car nicely.
  13. Custom Sized Number Plate

    Hi! Does anyone know of a place where i can order a custom sized number plate? I need one that is sized 430mm x 312mm. I do not intend to mess with spacing etc so thats fully legal. Would also of course need to have the BS mark and manufacturer and post code. I only ask because I've bought a new set of gloss black grills from my 2010 Facelift Focus (see picture) and it looks like the section reserved for mounting a number plate was for the asian market perhaps Any online avenues greatly appreciated! Thanks!
  14. Thanks...I guess I'll just enquire about modifications to this one first!
  15. Hi...I've just bought a lovely white 2009 Focus Zetec S. I love everything about the car except the exhaust just sounds monstrous...I mean it's over the top ridiculously loud! Is there any way to go about making this quieter i.e. would an exhaust specialist be able to change it or will I have to opt for a new exhaust altogether. I've attached pictures of the underside to show as best I could how it's put together....it branches off into twin pipes that have twin muffler tips on them. Thanks! Also...everything needs a good clean i know!! :o) Athique
