    Focus Not Starting - Dead Battery? (Video)

    Thanks for confirming guys!! Decision was made to purchase a new battery, no longer want to take chances with an 8 year old battery, as I dont want to risk being stranded again.
  2. Hi guys, Went to my parked Focus Mk2 (Petrol, 1.6) after roughly a week of not using it at all, and realised it's not starting. First thought was dead battery (not sure how old the current battery is, at least 4/5 years, it's a Ford branded one), as the starter seems to be rapid clicking, but not cranking. Pretty sure it's the case, just wanted to get others views before I go out and buy a new battery. Cheers

    Stereo shopping!

    This is wrong (I have a similar custom head unit, android based). You can still change the dash clock in the instrument cluster by using the knobs/buttons on the left hand stalk. Only (minor) issue is that the time on the dash and on your headunit won't sync (and may be out by a few minutes compared to each other as time gradually passes).

    Breakdown Cover

    Aye, I also have the breakdown cover from the Ford Service, it's great. One less thing to bother with, I hate comparing breakdown cover/car insurance/energy companies etc.

    Lock Replacement Advice?

    Hi all, Idiot me is trying to replace the locks/cylinder on my front door, but unfortunately it doesn't seem like a simple design. The exterior of the lock looks like this, it's some kind of anti-manipulation/police secured by design thingy. Do I have to remove the entire handle and handle assembly (so pretty much everything) in order to remove the cylinder on one of these doors? I tried removing the cylinder without disassembling the whole thing, but it wouldn't seem to come out. Advice from anyone who's familiar with these would be much appreciated! Trying to avoid spending 100+ quid on a locksmith... Cheers

    What the hell is it here with some snow

    Much like how the drunks ending up at A&E wasting precious resources should get charged for their visit.

    What the hell is it here with some snow

    I remember doing a calculation a while back, and coming to the conclusion that I could easily spend the full night with my engine and heating on (if I were to get stranded somewhere), and not even get close to running out of fuel. I think it was something like 18-24 hours easy on a full tank.

    7 Undertakes In 10 Minutes!!!

    Nutter, but why on earth did 'Derbyshire' police disregard the video footage/evidence and say they needed independent witnesses?!

    Crikey, that is bad! Mine doesn't have rust there I think, but my rear frame is rusty and so is my exhaust!

    FOCUE - would it be easy for you to take a picture of the offending location? I would like to also check mine and want to know exactly where to look...

    A few Xtrons questions

    I didn't buy an 'xtron' unit, but from a different seller. Very happy with mine, bought it about 3-4 years ago, not a single issue since. I've simply placed my GPS antenna flat on the left hand corner of the dash (up near the glass where the windshield slopes up), and it works perfectly fine. Secured with blue-tack lol, but it's never moved once.

    Did the earth move for you.

    I've felt earthquakes before (last one I remember was a 4.6), but didn't notice this one at all.

    Ahh it feels good to be...

    I remember around 6 months ago, it was a completely different group of posters consistently owning the 'top posters' leaderboard. It's cyclical guys, your time will eventually come to an end too

    Why didn't the student 'know' in the first place that her own car doesn't have air conditioning? lol
