  1. I have a 2000 focus and need to change the central locking motors on the drivers door and rear drivers side door. I have the motors but cant seem to get the door cards off. Anybody know how? I've found all the screws i can behind the handle etc but it seems to be the window winder on the rear door stopping it but cant get that off. Front is electric windows but still wont come off. Any ideas? Cheers, Dan
  2. indicator stopped working on one side HELP

    Really greatfull for the offer of help but i have had it to an auto electrician today whos sorted it. It was the flasher unit and hazard lights combined or something like that which had burnt out for some reason. I'm also having trouble with my central locking and he's told me its 2 door motors that need replacing. Guna cost me £250 at end of month to have that sorted. Thanks again for your help. Cheers, Dan
  3. indicator stopped working on one side HELP

    Where do i find the relay? I've checked all the fuses and the front bulbs but cant get my rear lights out to check that one.
  4. I have a 2000 focus 1.8. This morning on my way to work i heard a bang and could smell some burning which i now think was probably coming from inside the car and my right hand indicator isn't working as a result. The left one works perfect but the right one makes a faster indicator ticking noise but there is no light on the dash to show i'm indicating and none of the front, back and side indicators flash on that side. Any help would be great. Cheers, Dan
  5. rough starting from cold

    Not a major problem but a bit annoying. My 1.8 zetec focus is a bit rubbish at starting on a morning or when its been left for a while. It just coughs and splutters. It starts up no problem with a bit of gas on which i have to do and it starts first time after its been run for a while. Any ideas what will sort it. Would a service do any good? Cheers
  6. mk1 1.8 focus locking problem

    Mine does same but doesn't make any difference if the weathers hot or cold. I just use the key all the time but would like to get it sorted. Mines same year and same engine.
  7. Loud noise and vibration

    Cheers for replys, i had it to garage today who at first thought it was bearings but ruled that out after putting it on ramps. Forgot to mention i put some new 17" alloys on and garage said it could be to do with cheap budget tyres. He swapped front and back wheels round and it seems to have made it a bit more bearable.
  8. Loud noise and vibration

    I have a 2000 focus 1.8 zetec and when going anything above 10mph really it sounds like it's revving really high when it is'nt. It's especially loud when going downhill and it also causes vibration (not on the steering wheel and gearknob but just on floor). It sometimes feels asthough the car is taking itself for a while. Any ideas what it could be?
