      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. Ford Focus Mk.2 Estate Boot Water Ingress

    Patrick, did sealing the hairline cracks stop the water ingress? I have sealed around the hinges, all cable inlets and around the rear cluster fixings etc. I too have these hairline cracks mostly on the drivers side around 1 inch inside the rubber seal flap (under the roof rail) they don't look large enough to allow this amount of water in but I'm running out of things to seal! The cracks look more like a hairline of rust when peering in from the end of the t-track. The water is coming through the vent on the c pillar and dripping onto the carpet above the small storage compartment on the side of the boot compartment. It's a shame as I've had 5 years trouble free motoring with this old barge..
