      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.

  5. Focus 2.0 Timing Belt Question

    I know the water pump is on the aux belt on the 1.8 tdci engine but I got told by ford that they recommend changing the cambelt either at 125000 or 10 years which ever comes sooner so I would ring them to check cheers Sam Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  6. Yes thanks matey not rang them yet tbh Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  7. Yeah that is true will have a look later I still gotta get mine re-mapped but not had the spare dollar yet because there's always something broke isn't there :-) Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
  8. That sounds good mate more bhp in your life I would take it to another mechanic sounds a bit guess work with mega bucks involved there is a decent scrap yard near me that has fixed prices for all car parts and they good prices gonna go tomorrow and see what the crack is but they have 2 focus in so hopefully one should me same because mines only a reg newer :-) Sent from my iPhone using Ford OC
