    Mk2.5 With Mk3 Mist Washers Help

    yeah thanks, since found out. I found another thread and it seems a spot of glue might help at the bottom.
  2. Hi I fitted the mk3 mist washers to my focus about 3 years ago and although they work fine, I would like the spray to be a little higher on my windscreen. I seem to get a lot of the fluid spraying onto my bonnet as well which is a bit of a pain. Are these adjustable like the old ones with a pin or does anyone else have the same issue and has found fix? Many thanks

    Break Disc And Pads Replacement

    thanks for the help everyone, think I will just go with the dealer unless I find it cheaper elsewhere in the meantime.

    Break Disc And Pads Replacement

    I don't mind doing some things but breaks is something I really don't want to attempt even if it is easy. :)

    Break Disc And Pads Replacement

    me again I just checked on eurocarparts and break discs are around £30-40 so I'm looking at £80 roughly and then £20-£30 for pads. So Im looking at £120-£130 on parts. So I would of thought £177 is quite good? By the way that price is at a main dealer.

    Break Disc And Pads Replacement

    Hi Sorry not sure I understand, are you saying the price quoted is a ripoff? :)
  7. Hi My front pads and discs will need replacing soon, I have been quoted £177. I have never had to have this done before but I have had my focus the longest so Im unsure what kind of price is good for such a job. Can anyone advise on if this is a good price? many thanks

    Led Sidelights On Mk2.5

    Hi I just got some Osram led lights for my mk2.5 sidelights, I had these nasty looking blue tinted bulbs before which hardly gave out any light, and as you guys know the sidelights on the focus are situated on the top corner of the focus and depending on bulbs can be quite poor for light output. I got the following which are an excellent match for my dipped beam (Osram nightbreakers plus) but the leds below are stated for interior only, I read around and its such a grey area on weather led lights (exterior use) are road legal? Has anyone else got these and have fitted them or similar to their sidelights, just want to be sure I'm driving road legal even though the lights I got are exterior use only, Im guessing its just Osram manufacturer advice and that led lights (sidelights) are ok for road use due to many new cars using led now. thanks

    Windscreen Replacement

    Had my windscreen replaced twice at autoglass, great service. I guess I've been unlucky with my focus and its windscreen though as its the only car I've so far had to replace the windscreen, bottle thrown at it while driving and a stone chip turning into a large crack across the screen. Both occasions costed me the £75 excess. I always drive to the repair centre as the online booking system is pants and you normally have to wait ages if you want a call out, by that time your chip turns into a crack, so its best to go to a rapid response autoglass repair centre if you have one local as you can get booked in much much quicker.

    Chips/scuffs On Bumper Help

    Hi Thanks, I will try to get some pics up over the weekend, I was thinking about ebay for the headlight assembly but I will probably buy the wrong headlight knowing me.
  11. Hi I have decided to keep my car for a bit longer so want to fix a little damage to front bumper driver side. I have damage to the plastic area under the headlight, scuffs and small chips, would chips away be a good bet? I've never used them so don't know what there like. Also I would like to replace the drivers side headlight unit as inside the unit is a burn smudge as if a bulb has got very hot, it's where the sidelight is so it's not a big deal but if I could get a headlight unit cheap, just not sure where to look? So can anyone recommend chips away and a place to get a headlight unit for a mk2.5. Many thanks

    1.6tdci And Ecoboost 1l 125

    hi Well customising a New focus Titanium with a few options such as sync2 navigation I think I could get one for around £14000 currently, that's with ford privilege and p/x my focus which was valued at £5000 the other week at Fords. I might leave it for now anyway, I really want the new focus 1litre but Im not sure Its worth it as my current focus has all the gizmo's and has only got 35'000 on the clock. Think I should get some more out of it.

    1.6tdci And Ecoboost 1l 125

    yeah thanks, looking I think it makes sense to go for a titanium as the zetec is missing the features I like such as climate control/ reverse sensors. Having Ford privilege will help as well. I think you get metallic paint free with that scheme as well as a good saving of about £1700???

    Do you think titanium would be better as If Im getting the sync2 system I think that can control climate unless of course it can still do that with the manual climate.
