      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  3. How to change the pollen filter

    Hi, I wonder it you can help me ? when you took the pollen filter cover off ( i.e. scuttle panel ) is there another cover that actually sits on or over the filter, there seems to be something missing on mine, because there's nothing holding the filter in situ, any advice would be welcome, Regards Baz
  4. How to change the pollen filter

    Hello , sorry to bring you back to this pollen filter thread, But, when my Focus had its recent service, (Its a 2000, 1600 saloon) the pollen filter was changed, and next time it rained, rainwater came inside the car, so I thought I'd try and sort it, off came the cover, and i found the seal to be knackered, but there was no other cover, (reading a back thread,) somebody said there was a cover over the actual filter element held down with clips, mine doesn't, it just sits there, and its a weird shape, down to getting water on it I suspect, So, can anyone please tell me, is there a cover that goes over the actual filter, other than the plastic scuttle panel cover thingy, and should there be a foam surround atop the filter, your advice would be soooooooo welcome, thanks in anticipation, Baz
