  1. All they are going to do I say take a feed from a switched live fuse using a fuse tap. They won’t use the fuse for the 12v socket either, it’s a really really simple thing to do yourself depending on how much the garage are going to charge you. all you are going to need is a fuse piggy back (£1.95), a 12v female power socket (£5), and a 12v car fuse tester (£5) and about half an hour.
  2. You can do it via Forscan, I did my 2017 STline
  3. I'd still class that bit as a 'splitter' to be honest. Failing that you could describe it as 'bumper skirt' or 'fairing' or simply a 'non OEM bumper'. Is it from a particular spec? If so you could just advise them that it is the 'STline bumper' for example
  5. Google is your friend here. Just Google 'focus MK2 fuse box layout' and look for the result from auto genius
  6. Check the cabin filter. You may need to put an AC cleaning bomb in it to flush the system too, and maybe regas it Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  7. I just looked at the price of the DMB badge, that's quite expensive. I paid £15 for the front, rear, 4x wheel and steering wheel badges, plus p&p. You can have any colour, any Font or design you want. Quality is excellent and they don't move once stuck down. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  8. Ah right, to be honest I've nothing to compare it against as this is the first car I've had with auto lights. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  9. How long is 'some time'? I think they normally take about 10-20s to go off. I've always put it down to the system making sure there isn't a false signal to turn the lights off. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  10. The overlay in your link isn't for the ST though. Overlays are cheesy if you make them cheesy, I loved mine and think they look alright. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  11. What do you think of an overlay as an option? I did mine and was really happy with them Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  12. Hi You're right, there seems to be a small window between the start of production in 2014 and approx March 2015. That is build dates rather than date of registration though. We have seen some 65 plates fail. We are encouraging all the owners who have experienced any kind of failure, whatever end of the spectrum the resulting damage is. We have advised people tell Ford (obviously), the DVSA and Andy Barratt - Ford CEO. I have messaged Andy myself, and he responded saying that it has been brought to his attention and he is currently investigating it, he will get back to me. I have no reason to think that the US document is untrustworthy. The reason some people have opted to use a magnet is down to them not having the confidence to identify the different heads. The magnet test us not open to interpretation, it either sticks or it doesn't. It's Ford in the UK that I don't trust, I feel there is a lot of denial about the issue. There are garages that currently have broken vehicles in the bays who deny knowing about the issue when asked by a different owner. It's a real shame. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  13. Some people aren't happy with just visually checking the bolts and want a 'physical' confirmation. If your happy enough with just looking then that's great, this is just an alternative way. What would you define as a 'few' Mondeos? I know of about 2 dozen up to now and the member seems to be going up daily [emoji3525] Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
  14. That's what I was thinking, so I was going to suggest masking off the badge and spraying with plastidip then a glossifier. Once that's done apply a gel overlay badge and it will look good as new. Sent from my SM-G950F using Tapatalk
