  6. hi, I have a 2006 focus with the 1.6 zetec ti-vct engine they are meant to be good on fuel? on a run the fuel gauge goes down pretty quick from full to 1/2 then ok driving it around town I get about 240 to a tank, its done 77k miles full history with a recent cambelt/water pump change it sounds throaty from the exhaust driving it around but had it checked and been told its fine the performance doesn't seem as good as ive read on the net, doesn't feel much quicker than a standard 1.6 not as good on fuel
  7. my mk2 focus 1.6 has a ti-vct engine hich is meant to give good mpg and performance, it has full service history, new clutch, cat, cambelt etc, I get about 280 to a tank around town and I don't feel the performance is anywhere need as good as ive read on the net

  9. ive been having issues with my boot handle / switch, it works every time from the fob, it will sometimes work after i have unlocked the car but that recently it barely unlocks without using the boot button on the fob, been told its the mirco switch in the door handle I know this is a common issue and I phoned a few dealers who don't stock it but can get one £51, just wondering if anyone had a spare one, looked on ebay which are only £6 but cant be genuine, thanks, is this also a guide on how to change it
  10. my 1.6 zetec has a standard exhaust but sounds quit sporty, is this common for a zetec with the ti-vct engine
  11. It's when I turn the steering wheel at slow speeds
  12. I m getting a creaking sound when I turn my steering wheel from side to side especially when parking and pulling out of spaces on full lock
