      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. Does have both from what I know. Will post my findings, in the meantime, all suggestions welcome.
  2. The first twice it happened it smelt like rotten eggs however today it smelt different, but still rotten. I've never smelt sulphur before so I don't know what it's like. Would the cat really be away on a car just over a year old anyway? Any other symptoms of a buggered cat?
  3. Sorry, it's the 1.6 Diesel (115). You can tell when it's doing a regen because the fan at the front spins and it has a distinctive noise, and it continues long after the car has stopped running, but it does it roughly one every two months or so but at the times I've smelt this, it hasn't been doing a regen.
  4. Hi Guys Looking for any advice here. Over the past three days, I've noticed a smell coming from my 2014 Focus when the heater is on. The best way I can describe it is that something is seriously decomposing and rotting somewhere however I've had a look in the engine bay, looked at the pollen/air filter and checked all the obvious places. There's no fur, hair or all the usual stuff, and I haven't hit anything on the road. There seems to be no way to recreate the smell (how to get it to actually happen) but the smell isn't there constantly. The heater can be on for ages before you get a random seriously foul burst of the smell and it's gone again after 30 seconds or so. Seen some suggestions of the EGR stuck or maybe the CAT on it's way out but no blows in the exhaust or any holes/warning lights etc. I'm at a loss as to what it can be but the smell is so bad when it does occur that it can't be ignored. Any ideas?
  5. My New Zetec S

    Hi All Picked up my new Zetec S. Already done a few mods which include LED Sidelights, Wind Deflectors (front and rear) and numberplate holders. Upgrading the Puddle Lights to LEDs in the morning and looking to do some more to her but have run out of ideas haha. The sidelights are really powerful and emit a lovely white light, Before: After:
  6. 2014 Focus Zetec S

    So could someone link me to some bulbs please that are more aesthetically pleasing than the yellowish ones? :)
  7. Zetec S Cruise Control

    Really quite surprising. I had budgeted for it anyway but I was really struggling to believe it's not present by standard. Onwards and upwards..
  8. Is it true that the Zetec S really doesn't have cruise control as standard? I find this hard to believe considering it's one of the highest option models. I see it's added as an optional extra but it's not just 'cruise control' but rather 'cruise control with adaptive speed' or something like that.
  9. Facelift Focus - Mk3.5

    Any photos of the Facelift hatch with the Zetec S body kit on it?
  10. 2014 Focus Zetec S

    I thought so too, after Jan 2011 I believe but have seen a lot that don't seem to have any lights on.
  11. 2014 Focus Zetec S

    Hey All Due to take delivery of my new Zetec S later in May and will be wanting to change the number plate lights, side, dipped beam and bull beam if possible to white bulbs. Also do these Focus' have DRLs? Would be looking to change them as well if so. Could anyone point me in the right direction of where to get error free bulbs please? Thanks
