  1. i had such similar issue 2 ys ago. i thought the worst and took to fords for a check. they jus serviced aircon and gas recharge. worked a treat after that. said enough fas in it to operate compressor but not enough for adequate air conditioning.
  2. noticed today on facebook that theres going to be a huge ford recall later this year certain cars between certain yrs and mine appears to be included to get something done to the doors which aparantly may just open on their own whilst driving along. anyone got any further details
  3. is there not two fans. the engine fan and the aircon fan. surely only the aircon fan comes on when ac is on. the engine fan will only come on when the engine requires it to.
  4. i used to put castrol edge in my tdi passat as did vw when serviced. i put castrol stop ad start 5 30 in my tdci focus.
  5. forgot to mention the 2.0 tdci engine is the peugeot /citroen hdi lump. find it extremely quiet and so smooth its a job to tell if its ticking over.
  6. hi iv got a 62 plate ford focus 2.0 tdci titanium x. iv had it over 2 yrs. its never missed a beat. its the 163 bhp mapped to 196. it goes like a rocket on the motorway. also does im not kidding at about 70 80 mph over a run of just over 200 miles between 56 and 62 mpg according to computer. its cost me a battery and set of brake pads in 2 yrs. thers not much room in back seats for passengers and boots not huge bit big enough. iv also had all rear windows blacked. it looks stunning. in my opinion you cant go wrong. its also a very well equipped car from the stereo to the xenon headlamps.

  8. oh . trust me to buy the bottom of the range.
  9. oh. haha. well iv looked at mine. its just a black sort of foam cover over the spare wheel. but mines an estate. mayb different.and may not have one at all i suppose
  10. where actually is this thing. from youre previous small photo i honestly thought it was the spare wheel cover. i am wrong.
  11. does anyone know where the pollen/cabin fiter is on a 2012 focus titaniumx x is located. iv googled it and looked but be buggered if i can see it. and is it easy to replace. thankyou
  12. what do you? think it is. it sits ontop of the spare wheel so when carpet goes back down it dosnt sink round the edges of the spare wheel
  13. what does magnatec actually do that others dont. is it hype. beating in mind that there ate other well known oils. i.e castrol mobil petronas halfords etc. none of those refer to anything remotely mag??
  14. thinking about an oil change on my 62 2.0tdci focus. halfords do a couple of oils for it. usually has castrol 5 30 magnatec but that only comes in 1 or 4 litres. they also do their own brand 5 30 fully synthetic meets the same ford specs in a 5 litre and its cheaper than castrols 4 litre. will this oil be suitable for my car. normally get oil and filter changed 2 times a yr and do about 8 thousand miles town and fast motorway work.
