      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.

    Focus LX TDCi
  1. Power Windows

    I have an 2002 focus tdci ghia, (only bought it a month ago and all is great) except that the passenger front power window opened by itself while driving and refused to close - until about 5 mins later, did this 3 times that day. not draed to use as i was on holiday. all other windows working Ok Help!
  2. New Focus - diesel vs. petrol

    I have owned 2 1.8tdci focuses, and had No problems with the engines and around 50mpg combined, 55+ on longer runs. The current 1.6tdci develops plenty of power and acceleration at lower revs than a petrol and far better fuel economy ( and road tax)
  3. Satnavs & Heated Screens

    I use Tomtom with no prblems mounted on heated f screen :)
  4. Dual mass flywheel

    Just got a TDCI and wondering how would i know if the flywheel failure so often mentioned is likely to occur- Can I test it in some way? the car has 96K on the clock.
