  1. Product looks completely genuine to me, has holograms and seals
  2. I think the change was because they wanted more interior space which necessitated a change in windscreen shape and Mk3 wiper style would not work
  3. Just ordered castrol professional magnatec from Parkes Motor Group Glasgow via eBay. £25 for 5 litres free delivery. Very fast delivery
  4. Hi, I think the service interval is 3 yearly and the best done by dealer as new oil has to be pumped through. Gearbox oil filter also needs changing at the same time. Likely to cost around £200 at the dealer
  5. Hi, have you tried playing music via bluetooth? I play music using a memory stick and that remembers the last track played.
  6. had the software update done yesterday, just over an hour
  7. Hi, by chance I checked the Ford Etis site and found that my 2105 Focus is subject to a Ford recall for software update. On searching the internet only 1.0l and 1.6l engines with 6 speed gearboxes where listed as subject to recall. Having spoken to my Ford dealer they have confirmed that my 1.5l is subject to recall. Ford customer services were less than useless advising me to check the Etis site and could not tell me why I have not received anything in writing from Ford. Which is concerning as this potential fault can potentially cause clutch failure and a fire. Probably worth checking if you have a Focus with a 6 speed gearbox
  8. I think the navigation/mapping data is on a data memory card which is accessed behind the silver panel surrounding the on/off/volume botton
  9. Hi, I have received my confirmation email for booking club stand tickets, but nothing since. Do they email out any additional tickets/passes, the original email implies they do? First time attending so just wanted to check. Thanks
  10. Hi, the Ford roof bars are made by Thule. I have Ford roof bars for my Focus estate. They are not quite as snazzy as the latest Thule, but are a good fit and good quality.
  11. Hi, sounds like it could be a software glitch, you try disconnecting the battery, of course you will lose all stored info, you may need hi-fi security code (if your hi-fi has a code). Or if you find which fuse supplies the relevant control module just remove the fuse for 5 - 10 minutes. If disconnecting the power supply fails I guess you would have to ask a dealer.
  12. Hi, I have a 2015 Focus with USB port is the dash. It charges my iPhone perfectly and I use it to play music using a memory stick.
  13. Hi, just booked my ticket for this year's Ford Fair. First time attending and gone for club ticket. Looking forward to meeting other enthusiasts on the club stand.
  14. Hi, I have Thule roof bars and roof box for my Focus. They are good quality and easy to fit. Ford roof bars are Thule but rebranded. The type of roof box all depends on what you want to put in it and your budget.
  15. Hi, the 1.0 engine is covered in the Haynes focus mk3 manual, they cost around £15
