  1. Those are the car battery prices, key fob batteries are a couple of pounds at the most for decent make.
  2. Hi George When I had mine changed 3 years ago at my local independent garage, that I have used for 15 years, the cost then was £291.95. That consisted of 3 hours labour, the timing belt kit, new water pump, auxiliary and air con belts. and anti freeze.
  3. Neat petrol into the cat/convertor

  7. See my old thread I dont know if they are still available Found this on ebay https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/GENUINE-VOLVO-ENGINE-TOP-COVER-1-6-1-4-PETROL-30650468-FORD-FOCUS-WATER-LEAK-MOD/221662425971?epid=725305405&hash=item339c1c3373:g:9WwAAOSwzrxUtkiu:rk:1:pf:0
  8. It takes longer to overcome the Disklok than it does to overcome the bar type steering wheel locks. I have had mine since 2004 they are a great visual deterrent Decent security comes at a price. With the bar type you can hacksaw the steering wheel to remove them. https://www.carbuyer.co.uk/tips-and-advice/158469/best-steering-wheel-locks-to-buy-2018 Best steering wheel locks to buy 2018
  9. @craig26283 After I acquired the Focus in March 2016 I used that DVLA form and they let me have the names of the 5 previous owners. We also got ourselves a Volvo S40 in December 2017 and filled in the same form again and the reply from the DVLA this time was that they could no longer give us the names of the previous owners due to GDPR except for the one that was on the newly issued to me V5. I even phoned the sender of the DVLA letter and he confirmed that it was due to GDPR that they no longer gave out the names of previous owners.
  10. Due to GDPR you will have a bat in hell chance of getting any information about it. https://www.gov.uk/request-information-from-dvla Information about another vehicle or its registered keeper You can ask for details of another vehicle’s registered keeper. You’ll need a ‘reasonable cause’, for example: finding out who was responsible for an accident tracing the registered keeper of an abandoned vehicle tracing the registered keeper of a vehicle parked on private land giving out parking tickets giving out trespass charge notices tracing people responsible for driving off without paying for goods and services tracing people suspected of insurance fraud Private car parking management companies that give out parking tickets or trespass charge notices can only request information from DVLA if they’re members of the British Parking Association or the International Parking Community.
  11. You should be able to replace the standard bulbs for led bulbs.
  12. Did you try the Led bulb both ways in the socket, thy will only work one way round. Cannot help you with the fuse, I have a Focus.
  13. Bulb were rated 8th out of 30 in a Which survey, they get good to excellent customer reviews in Trust Pilot, the worst I have come across for poor customer service are British Gas, Eon and Utilita who I am about to leave.
  14. Hi Cheviot Has this been sorted out yet? Did you ask about who,s name it is taxed in? Name and shame the dealer so other members can avoid them, with a service like this they do not deserve customers.
