  1. Engine Vibrations - Gearbox Mount?

    You really shouldnt drive at 30 in 4th, thats not good for the engine overall and isnt more eco. The petrol engines are 30 in 4th. Have you tried opening the bonnet with someone inside your car with the handbrake on and slightly accelerating and looking how much play there is with the engine. I have used this for mounts a few times. I have the same engine but the mk3 focus. Could you post a video of the vibration?
  2. Focsum MK3 1.6l Ti-VCT engine tremble issue

    i cant see, the video it says its been removed. Sorry for late reply
  3. Hissing noise from brake pedal

    I have a hissing, air releasing type sound on my brake pedal however brakes seem fine. Assuming that its normal as they dont feel different?
  4. Steering assist malfunction - Service required

    I had this once, took the car to ford for a software update and it went away.
  5. FORD Focus overheating

    It may be the water pump, you should be ok if there is no blue smoke and you wait for to temp to come down before topping it up you wont crack the head. The fix shouldnt be too bad of a money pit most parts can be picked up cheap from ebay, scrappy's etc, if your not getting smoke on startup engine will be fine so your ok. Saying that, if heaters wont cool the engine it that may be the thermostat. Is it blowing cold when engine is warm? If i can remember correctly the thermostat housing and thermostat are all in one and just bolt off, its quite simple. Id start small and work your way up, New waterpumps are cheap id do this last, its just obviously the belt has to come off, so if you do get to this stage might aswel replace the belt too.
  6. brakes

    No that wouldnt be worth doing, the issue is not the caliper. if the piston is gone the brakes would be seezed and wouldnt not push back in. Just have the drivers side cleaned, sanded and greased it should solve the issue. If not spend money on some better pads. Maybe your drums need doing too even if the noise isnt just from the front.
  7. Rear parking sensors mk3 (2013)

    You dont need the sat nav screen for rear sensors they work on even the monochrome screen, i imagine after having all the wires in place its just a matter of using the FoCCCus software to state you have rear sensors, you should also use FoCCCus to change the settings for the screen. This should be all you need to do. I dont think there is a seperate module for parking sensors however i may be wrong.
  8. Brake pedal play

    How are you going about bleeding the system? Maybe there is still air in there.
  9. Air Con Issue, Not working

    Thanks guys, ill get it looked at maybe tomorrow and see how it goes. Cheers
  10. brakes

    Ahh so maybe it is the drums, this is something ull have to make sure off.
  11. Air Con Issue, Not working

    So whats my first course of action without spending unnecessary money? Go for the re-gas first and see where the leak is then proceed from there? Obviously if the condenser is done for, im wasting my money right? Iv just checked Groupon and the closest place it an hours drive from me. Is halfords really that bad? Its just round the corner.
  12. brakes

    Another way to check this is get a friend to stand at the end of a road and listen to you braking to idenify the noise. I have had the same issue, it can sound like the front and its the rear. So you can spend lots of time on the front and it wont even be the front. Although it doesnt matter how many people do the job, some people dont do the job properly. The slightest deposits of dirt etc can cause a noise. Copper ease can attract dirt over time, so if everything is not cleaned properly when fitting new pads, it may cause an issue. The smallest thing can cause this.... I have instances where everything looks all good and clean and its not. So give everything a proper clean and going over and the noise goes. Its annoying but if your thurra you should be fine. Before you do this make sure you know exactly where the noise is from.... Dont want to be doing the front drivers side wasting all your time and its not even that. Hard braking may just stop the noise because of heat etc, i wouldnt be slamming on anyway when pads are first bedding in, this can cause noise in itself. Try this, put your handbrake slightly on maybe half way and then come to a stop . Make sure its just slightly on and engaged dont want to be doing as 360 on public roads. This should help you figure out if its the fronts.
  13. Air Con Issue, Not working

    Which part is this, will it need replacing/repaired?
  14. Air Con Issue, Not working

    I know nothing about the AC system which part is the condenser, where is it located? Will i need to buy this part? I know where the piping and stuff is. I have the ST front end on my car and the grill is way more open than the other bumpers (honeycomb grill has lots of gaps). Which i image could allow stones to get there on the motorway etc. So im best to get myself to halfords and get it done there? I wouldnt use them, however they are litterally 5 minute drive from me so its ideal.
  15. Air Con Issue, Not working

    Thanks for the reply, i do have a halfrauds round the corner so i think this is the easiest option for me and iv heard if it doesnt work you get it for free. The AC button lights up yes, i never hear the AC fan since i got the car even when it was working? Atleast im sure i couldnt hear it. Maybe im wrong. I hope there is not more than just the gas being wrong with it. But like i said i never really did use it, except from trying it in summer and it wouldnt blow cold.
