  1. Battery Removal

    Hi Can someone please help me!! I have a Focus Titanium 1.6 Ti-VCT 2006 and need some advice on how to remove and replace the battery. Some stupid design flaw on this model places the battery underneath the top front air grill, and the Air Filter housing next to it. There seems to be no easy way of removing the battery unless you take the whole engine bay apart. If anybody could give me some assistance this would be appreciated immensely.

  5. focus power steering pump and pipe

    Hi all My 06 1.6 Ti-VCT Titanium has developed a noise sounding like a air horn...only does this when accelerating either moving or parked and when the car is slightly warmed up. I took it to a local garage and at first they thought it was the alternator, they replaced it but the noise was still there so they took it off to save me paying for it. Now they suspect the power steering pump. There is fluid In the pump and steering appears to be fine, The garage has quoted £400 to replace but has anyone else experienced anything similar? also if there is just a leak on the hose is it possible that this is what the noise is?
  6. Ford Focus Mk2 Common Problems Thread

    Sorry ended up taking it to a garage I trust and they told me the bearing in the alternator was either on its way out or seized, so they put a new alternator on to find that that wasn't the problem now they are looking at the water pump. Sent from my SM-N9005 using Ford OC mobile app

  8. Ford Focus Mk2 Common Problems Thread

    I have an 06 1.6ltr Duratec TiVCt no problems until now........I have this sound like someone blowing a French horn under the bonnet when applying the throttle and it is really worrying. me. If anyone has any ideas as to what this could be and could give me some idea of how much this may cost to repair, would be really appreciated. PS sorry new here so not sure this is the right topic to post this too.
