      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.

  1. Cheers mate, I found out how it unclips by a bit of vigorous tugging [emoji23] Annoyed that I couldn't remove the 12v socket without having to buy a replacement , as it looks like once it's in, its in, so that's my only annoyance as my scalpel slipped and now I have a small nick bellow the socket, but for a 1st attempt I'm quite happy Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  2. Will the top silver plastic bit come away from the main body ? It looks like it's only clipped in, mines scratched so want to wrap it to make it look nicer, cheers Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  3. 1.6TDCi Odd Belt Noise

    Sounds like a belt rubbing or something similar, Not very experienced with Ford's but if it was a crank pull or tensioner gone I'd expect it to make a he'll of a racket Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  4. Problems with power to the radio

    Ok, did you buy a steering control adaptor ? As it's all canbus controlled it may need to see a power signal from the stalk. As I'm on tapatalk can't see your profile, what model & year is the car Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  5. Problems with power to the radio

    Are you using a loom adaptor or wiring direct ? Some radios require a slight change to the loom to get power depending on brand and car etc. Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  6. Blew a dipped bulb the other day and fuse 143 was toast, changed bulbs and fuse, ran a fault code check and brought back a generic u1900. Then drove a while later noticed the clock date and temp were all out, Managed to reset the clock and c°/f° out but the date won't go past 2014 ? Only other thing I've done this week is had the stereo out could this be it ? Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  7. Guide To Fitting An Aftermarket Head Unit

    Damn you photobucket ! Just when I need pics for my install you decide to start charging [emoji34] Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  8. Focus 1.6 Zetec first timer help

    I'm new to my car too and mine sounds a bit rattley till it warms up properly it was serviced before i got it but next oil change i'll put a brand in i've used in my scoob which made it run a bit smoother , i also have the knocking on the left side, i'm putting it down to warn lower arm bushes, oh and it doesnt like going into reverse much either so i'd say these arent unique Sent from my SM-T210 using Tapatalk
  9. Energy Supplier (Gas and elec)

    i'm with 1st utility for both. I was paying 70 a month for combimed then last nov i'd accrued so much credit they dropped it to £30 ppm and I was able to heat &light the whole house pretty much none stop all winter and we were still in credit by the end of Jan Customer service is fairly good too Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  10. Turbo uderboost help

    Have you checked all your connections & hose clips are tight as even a slightly loose clip will gradually work loose Check your wastgate actuator it could be sticking open, Boost solenoid could also be at fault, not worked on ford turbo units so not exactly sure what the setup is like but does sound like large leak somewhere, Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  11. Drilling a hole through the dash

    Fuse box under the glove box, just tap into it with this Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  12. Focus Cambelt Damage

    Was the belt change during your ownership ? As that one looks alot older than two years Either that or it's not been aligned properly as there looks to be alot of wear on it Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  13. Drilling a hole through the dash

    Cheers for the heads up I ran out of time today to do any more so I'll have a look in the morning Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
  14. Drilling a hole through the dash

    I have this on my desk at work, was gonna hard wire the van one but never got round to it, So the plan is the 12v adaptor plug has a 10amp fuse but too long so i'm Going to cut down the wiring and solder & shrink wrap the piggy back 10amp fuse on attach to spare ign live fuse spot, then run it underneath the glove box, I've already 're routed the cam cabling behind the door weather strip and poked it through to glove box 🖒 then hopefully will be a case of plugging in and job jobbed !

  15. Drilling a hole through the dash

    Thanks for the replies, It was my dad's car before I took ownership so he's stuck some tiny hooks down the side of the a pillar and window which is a bit annoying as makes access to the a post a bit fiddly, they seem to be welded onto the glass [emoji23] If I'm not too busy at work today I'll have a little look at removing the door seal. @tangodaz it's a garmin cam so needs to have the 12v socket on it to work. Don't know why they've done it that way but the one in my van is the same Sent from my SM-G930F using Tapatalk
