      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.

    Thanks people for your comments .... I currently have a 1.8 petrol mk2 facelift but bored to tears with it now .
  2. Potential purhase Zetec S Mk2.5

    Im tempted in a 2010 Focus Zetec S .. its a mk2.5 but a diesel . A 1.8 tdci engine . It looks an amazing looking car with the wheels bodykit etc .... is the S model basically the same as a Normal Zetec or is it based on an ST ? Advice greatly recieved please .
  3. Focus Mk2.5 headlight bulb ??

    Hi guys , i have an issue with the headlight bulb not seating correctly. a garage has told me I need a new complete headlight , as the bulb cannot be seated correctly in the headlight . The bulb is sort of facing upwards and not directly forward . Am I being fobbed off , as for the life of me I cant seem to figure it out at all .
  4. Focus Mk2.5 stereo 6000

    What size are these mate
  5. Focus Mk2.5 stereo 6000

    I had enough of the shocking dim sound of the Ford 6000 I had in my MK2.5 . I bought a single din facia plate and fitted my old Pioneer CD/Radio . The sound is so so so much better , just goes to show how shocking the standard head unit actually was .
  6. Focus Mk2.5

    May I ask ... do you get a lot of engine noise at motorway speeds , mine is a 1.8 petrol and is dreadful !
  7. Focus Mk2.5

    Thanks for the replies all ... its not so much road noise , more of engine noise . I used to own a MK1 Focus saloon 2.0 Ghia petrol , that was so much quieter engine wise at motorway speeds . Begining to regret selling the old one now .
  8. Focus Mk2.5

    Hi everyone , firstly im new here to the forum so hello everyone . I have a problem with my 1.8 petrol Focus , its a 2009 model . For sometime now I have had an issue with a vibrating dash etc on tickover . Car drives fine although I do find it noisey at motorway speeds . Doing some research on here people point to a possible engine mount failure , the one near the expansion tank circular in shape ... fluid filled apparently ? I took off the expansion tank to try and look at the mounting ... it looks a little perished and on closer inspection , the soft centre has a hole in it . I can put my finger in it . Has this mounting failed would you think ? If replaced would that make the engine less noisey at motorway speed also ?
