  1. Wow, thanks for the info Wilco, much appreciated
  2. Hi all, Just wondering if the clutch pedal on my 2012 face-lift focus can be adjusted, its about an inch and a half higher than the brake pedal and has no force until pressed below the 1.1/2 inch mark. I couldn't find anything on the net. Cheers.
  3. Had to change the battery in my 2008 a few months back it had similar problems. My lo-tec method of test was to turn on full headlights and keep window up button held up, the extra power needed to power the window motor made the lights flicker. New battery sorted the problem. Sounds a bit daft but it works
  4. Hi, Can anyone recommend a pure white Cree or led bulb replacement for my 2012 focus? Cheers
  5. Hi all, I'm looking for some horizontal drl's for my 2012 focus without any luck, I was contemplating using some 3 watt eagle eye led's but higher wattage ones ive seen in the past have a strong glare. Would anyone know if the eagle eyes can be dimmed, or if anyone has fitted an aftermarket drl set in the triangular grills? Cheers
  6. Thanks for the info Phil, your Focus looks amazing. I had night-eye led's in my mk2 a pure white light with no probs,I tried the dipped beam night-eyes in the mk3 and got an error so I removed them. Do you know if the fogs can be reached by removing the triangular grills, also looking for horizontal drl's with no luck.
  7. Hi all, I am looking to upgrade the bulbs on my new 2012 focus to a whiter looking light, this is my first experience of canbus and from what I have found I need error free bulbs if I go with led's. Apparently in time the led's will give trouble, so I am looking for a halogen white, side, dim, and fog light bulbs any suggestions would be a great help. Thanks
  8. Thanks again for the help Clive. I'm not too familiar with how this works so apologies in advance if its messed up or in the wrong section. To replace the ignition switch (not the cylinder) which was worn and bringing up warning lights and messing with the stereo, I extended the steering column fully out and up. Then removed the audio stalk by pushing in a pin at the rear of the stalk and pulling gently then disconnected the wiring. Then I removed the trim underneath the steering column one screw on the right where the diagnostic scanner plugs in, and two on the column. Then I turned the steering wheel until the clips for the trim were visible and opened them with a flat head screwdriver. The ignition switch wiring is then unplugged the housing has two tabs and comes out easily. Hopes this helps someone
  9. Thanks Clive, I've removed them both and the top cover as well, still no good. I don't want to force it too much. I wonder if the audio stalk has to be removed? Cheers
  10. Hi all, I need to fit a new ignition switch (not the barrel). I have stripped most of the trim but cant seem to to pry the housing away from the spot under the stereo remote control stalk. I can see the ignition switch just inside the housing where i removed the top section, any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers
  11. Ya Ian I think this is one for a pro, I've done some wiring and soldering but its a good thing to know your limits. Cheers 👍
  12. Thanks Ian I ran the scan every thing seems OK but i don't know what i'm looking for , My mechanic recons I need a dash cluster overhaul 190 euros and he hasn't even seen it . I'll go to a guy with a scanner tomorrow Thanks for your help
  13. Hi, I'm looking for help with a dash problem. With the last 3 days when starting my 08 focus (petrol engine) the arrow up light (maximum engine rpm light) and the engine light (both on the dash) remain on for about 30 seconds after the car starts and then go out. There doesn't seem to be anything wrong with the car its running fine. When turning on the dims they won't activate until the two dash lights go out. I disconnected the battery for about 10 mins to reset the system but the problem still remains. Any help would be much appreciated thanks.
  14. Cheers Stephen, I have the trim covers and fogs already fitted (my profile pic shows them after I painted them). Thanks again for your help, much appreciated.
