    MK3 Powershift Automatic oil change

    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

    Problems With iPhone Connectivity.

    Hi, have you tried playing music via bluetooth? I play music using a memory stick and that remembers the last track played.

    Ford recall - software update clutch slip 18S07

    had the software update done yesterday, just over an hour
  4. 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

    Is there a sim card hiding in my car?

    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

    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

    Recommended roof bars for Focus Estate 2016

    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.

    Mk3 Titanium X ambient lighting problem

    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.

    Roof boxes, talk to me !

    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.

    Manual for 1 litre ecoboost engine please

    Hi, the 1.0 engine is covered in the Haynes focus mk3 manual, they cost around £15
  13. Hi, I have a 2015 Focus titanium X, with Xenon headlights. When I switch my headlights on they start high and then both beams lower. You could try in the dark against a vertical surface to see if yours do the same.

    Engine noise after turning off

    Hi, I think it is the water pump cooling the turbo

    mk3 Bluetooth/Phone/Voice Control

    Hi, I occasionally have this problem with my Focus Mk 3.5 (which has Sync 2). If I un-pair my iPhone and re-pair it that seems to fix the issue.
