    Revs Not Dropping

    Its sucking air in or a possible collapsed pipe that's being sucked together or splitting, check all pipe's are tight non are very soft, most commonly the emmisions pipe depending upon the engine it'll either be a T shape piping at the front or at the back of the engine and comes round the side, they normally split or go soft due to the heat 👍

    If you've no managed to open the door just yet, obtain an old metal coat hanger remove both strips from the bottom of the window and insert it down the gap and use the hook to pull at the handles leaver then you'll be on your way to repair without damaging it 👍 @Tracey1806

    Same here not a coke fan more iron brew 👍 yeah with the water vinegar mix you only have to wait until it's dry n then it can be cleaned up roughly around 5mins which has suprised me very much as l never thought it would actually work 😂 next job is to swap rear shockers on our MK1 focus which hopefully won't now mean cutting bolts like my mate had to on his when he replaced the lot 😮

    Car speakers

    @Nrose1113 unfortunately you have a slight problem with a simple straightforward swap this is what someone with the same idea came across.... I've just had the door panels off my 56 plate (Feb 2007) Focus 1.6 Tdi Zetec Estate and can confirm the the speakers are round and match the Haynes Manual. Attached are some pictures. The front speakers seems bigger than the rear and both are held in molded standoffs that are rivetted to the door panel. Without the standoffs the speaker magnets would probably clash with the window machanism when down as well as being set well back from the speaker grill on the door trim. The 5"x7" speakers I bought to replace the standard ones are going to be sent back as there is no way I can make them fit without some custom molded standoffs

    Result after second spraying and scour pad rub..
  14. Well I've tried the white vinegar n water rust removal trick n it's proven to work on light n heavy rust very well.. l have sprayed the exaust again n will post the results when it's dried up, it was applied using a spray bottle only the brake disc was cleaned using a scour pad the first layer of the exaust was done with a wire brush but the second will be done with the same scour pad to see how clean it comes up compared to using the supposed best rust removal stuff at an expensive price this has cost about £3 make 😜
