      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. Its probably due to me driving back from Manchester to Durham once it had split ' I had no choice I wasn't stopping once on the motorway
  2. yes i did take a picture of the offending artical :o quite a big split , about 3 inch long , i never used a manual i just figured it out my self , was done in 25 - 30 mins , was just awkward :D
  3. well it was the lower pipe that was split , bit of a chew on getting to it , had to take the headlight out , but got it done so all good now , thanks for the advice fellas
  4. ive had a good look today and it seems to be the lower pipe thats gone now so will be replacing it in the morning , will let you know how it goes
  5. cheers stoney ill have a look at that , fingers crossed :D
  6. hi , im new to the site , im looking for any help i can get , i have a focus 1800 tdci estate , not had the car long when i noticed it was whistleing when it got just over 2000 revs and had black smoke coming out the exhaust,and a warning light came on the dash , i googled it and was pointed in the direction of a split turbo pipe witch it was, i replaced this from the ford dealership for £54 , the car has been running fine since , now ive been to manchester today and on the way back it stated again , warning light on , whistleing and black smoke . i pulled in at the services and checked the pipe and it seems fine , can anyone tell me what it could be this time ?? any other pipes that could be split ?
