  1. Did you use Hella or some after market headlights?
  2. is it a Fusion or a C Max?
  3. Definitely asking about Fusion not Focus
  4. I am wanting to change the headlights on a 2010, with amber indicator lenses, to the older clear type. There seems to be a wide selection of headlights out there with quite a range of prices, any one have any good or bad views on which ones to get or avoid.
  5. very pleased with the Dolphin kit I fitted, look better than my neighbours set fitted by the local Ford dealer but they can be susceptible to giving a constant beep if they are a bit dirty or wet, just a quick wipe over with a cloth or just a finger seems to solve the problem, assume all sensors need to be clean and dry.
  6. they should be a straight swap, a lot of people have swapped the new ones for the older clear ones as they think they are better looking
  7. I was looking around a while ago but couldn't find much available, I am thinking of using a glasspak or cherry bomb to replace the rear box, used to be a regular thing on the old carb fed Fords but don't know how it would affect the new engine management controlled engines, anyone else done this?
  8. thanks for the info, I suppose grease cap is an old term but why no dust caps covering the nut on the front wheel hub, surely there is more dust from the brake disc than the drum, can the same caps be fitted up front or is there a reason not to?
  9. just wondering if anyone knows why you get a grease cap on the rear wheels but nothing on the front ones, I intend to run steel wheels without trims and thought about fitting caps to the fronts to keep out water and dirt, is this a good idea or is there a good reason not to?
  10. I'd get your local garage, or at least someone with a code reader, to check it asap, in case it could cause any internal damage if you continue to use it, it has come on for a reason, if you can't get the codes read then check your handbook for details of why it might have come on, might be something easy to fix now but could be costly later if left.
  11. there was a member on here called Jethro Tull who seems to have disappeared since July, he was a prolific poster, just wanted to know if he was OK
  12. can someone please tell me the correct term for this little rubber bung on the front door, or a part number, the one on the drivers side is missing.
  13. generally people suggest putting the headlight in your oven for 10 - 15 minutes, glass side down and then the glue softens and melts and you can carefully separate the glass from the housing, never tried it myself, seems open to all sorts of dangers with burnt fingers, and then you need to reglue the glass back on, general advice seems to be silicone but not too sure if that would work, personally I would buy a cheap pair of aftermarket ones, or even some secondhand ones, from ebay or amazon
  14. put some platinum NGK's in about 3 weeks ago, only driven around town and upto about 50mph on dual carriageways but not noticed any difference, but at least they should last 3 times as long as standard ones
  15. anyone fitted bonnet struts to their car?
