    Ford recall - software update clutch slip 18S07

    I don’t like the idea of losing a bit of performance. If I bought the car because partly I liked the performance of it, and they take a bit away from the car because of a software update, seems a bit unfair.

    Ford recall - software update clutch slip 18S07

    Hi Everyone, On Wednesday I posted I hadn’t received my letter from Ford yet about the recall. ‘I don’t believe it.!’ Yesterday I received a letter from Ford for the recall 😂😂. So will be booking mine in. My worry is, after the recall job is done, will I lose any performance in the engines power.? Liam.

    Thank you Tom for this. I’ll give it a little while longer and if no letter shows up I’ll get it booked in. Liam.

    Ford recall - software update clutch slip 18S07

    Hi Everyone, I’m still waiting for Ford to contact me and recall my Focus and have the work done. I know it’s one of the affected ones. Will they bother to write or phone me to recall it or have I got to ring them.?? Liam.

    Problems With iPhone Connectivity.

    Hi Damian, Sorry for the late reply. Nope I haven’t tried that.! I shall give that a try. Thank you, Liam.
  7. Hi Everyone, I’ve got Sync 2 in my 16 plate Focus Titanium. Everytime I connect my iPhone to the front usb point using the normal required usb cable, my music on my iPhone always starts with the same song. In other words, it always plays the same random songs in the same order. To start with, it wasn’t bothering me as the first artist that played was Little Mix (I don’t mind a bit of Little Mix if I do say so 😉), but it’s starting to bother me (not because it’s Little Mix 😂). I have to hunt through the settings part of media so that I can view artists and chose who I want to listen too. Is there something in settings in media that I can change, so it doesn’t keep doing it.? Thank you, Liam.

    Degas Hose.

    So it’s safe to say that my Focus 1.0 EcoBoost is fine.? Liam

    Degas Hose.

    Hi All, I remember seeing a post about problems with a split degas hose on the Focus 1.0l EcoBoost 125 engines, but I can’t find it anywhere. Because I can’t, I wonder if you could help me with a query. I have a Focus 1.0l EcoBoost 125 which was registered in 2016 and I think manufactured in 2016 as well. Does my Focus have the type of degas hose that caused overheating which caused the splitting of the degas hose.? Can anyone tell me what I’m looking for under the bonnet please. Thank you, Liam.

    Ford recall - software update clutch slip 18S07

    Hi, I’ve just registered for the Ford Pass App and when I put my VIN number in, it showed my Focus details and also showed that it had a recall on it for the software for the clutch slip. I also checked .gov for any recall and it showed a recall on my car. I’ve had no letter from Ford about this recall. Can anyone tell me if this software update is important/very important and needs urgently doing. The reason I ask is I’m going on holiday next weekend and will be driving down to Cornwall. I’ve noticed from other replies on this thread, Ford can’t book recalls in for a month or so, hence another reason why I ask if this software update is urgent. What did we do when we didn’t have software to detect clutch slip and adjust for it. We had driver human instincts then and surely there was still the risk of clutch slip and damage, but did it cause a risk of fire. Liam.

    My New Focus.!

    Thank you Tom for the advice and suggestion.! I often wondered what that orange box with a + in it meant. Was too afraid to ask anyone just in case people thought I didn’t know what I was doing 🤭🤫🙄
