      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. Many thanks for that, Bruce - in which case it looks like a gorilla has serviced the car in the past I'll try inserting a bit of 'padding' into the holes to try and give the screws something to bite into - if that fails then I guess it's a new box :( Cheers
  2. Hi Guys, First post, so "please be gentle with me" :) I've just acquired a 2005 55-reg 1.6 petrol Focus Mk2, and have tried replacing the air filter - only to find that all the airbox top cover fixing screws appear to have 'stripped' from the lower housing! I can understand one or two, maybe - but all of them?? So my question is - do the screws simply 'tap' into the lower half, or should there be 'inserts' in the lower half - into which the screws er, screw? If I need a new airbox, is there any difference between Mk1 an Mk2 varieties? Many thanks, David
