    EcoBoost degas hose question

    Honestly mate if it splits while you are driving you can drain your system in a couple of miles!! Also you cant smell the antifreeze in the cabin if its leaking under the bonnet. Mine was a complete surprise, as i said i just happened to be servicing it at the time and noticed the undertray was wet.

    EcoBoost degas hose question

    the 3 pipes come as an assembly and is easy to fit, you just need a screwdriver to snap off the retaining clips of the hidden end of the small pipes. (its self explanatory when you've got the replacement part to fit in front of you) and a pair of long nose pliers for the hose clip on the turbo. The expansion tank is a push clip, takes 5 min to change simples. Other end of the small hose goes into cylinder head, clip connector, easy to get to.

    EcoBoost degas hose question

    My de-gas hose was done on a recall about 2015 or so, it went again last week, the small tube became brittle and cracked, i only lost about a litre of coolant, was lucky really !! I chucked on a replacement myself

    parking sensors and rain

    Yes that was my first thought. might try to clean the connection then put some vaseline around the joint. Sunny / dry days, no problem at all

    parking sensors and rain

    Hi guys, has anyone experienced parking sensors going off when you select reverse when there's nothing near you after driving in rain?? i have one rear sensor playing up, it gives a red warning and a continuous bleep too, when i select reverse.

    hard wire a dash cam on a 2012 focus

    what is the reason no one used f61. this is for the cigar lighter and rear power socket. these circuits do shut down on a timer once ignition is switched off.

    hard wire a dash cam on a 2012 focus

    That sounds like a better choice. I've seen threads where fuse 86 is used but thats air bags and i don't want to go near them as a rule
  14. Hello friends. Which fuse would be best to piggy pack on to hard wire a dash cam so is only on when the car is on ?? thanks guys (2012 focus)
