  1. Thanks for the advice @unofix, I will check all that and may need to remove the door fully to have a good look at how the connector works and its condition, do you happen to know what steps I would need to take to re-teach the electric window? 😀
  2. Hi, So the other day I was fitting new speakers to my focus MK2.5 and ran new speaker wire through the door connector by making a hole through the rubber of the connector. During this the connector did come loose and I fitted it back on while working through the speaker opening of the door so I couldn't see the connector but just went by feel. Today after installing the door cards back onto the doors, I have found that the left side passenger door window motor no longer functions, whether its being controlled from the right side door controls or the left side door controls. Th
  3. Sorry to be asking between your posts, but like you say I want a double din with a display for music and reverse parking camera, being able to watch movies is not necessary bit would be nice. When you say get a touchscreen, could you link me to an example. I was originally looking at the much cheaper chinese Atoto A6 Pro headunit which runs android, but people online were telling me that it it had poor sound quality then no amp could fix that. Supposedly the sound quality is alright the manufacturer states that it has a Toshiba pre amp built in but I don't know if that means anything. I just
  4. Thank you, thank you, thank you! I honestly don't know what I'd do without you man, you helped me with the Haynes manual pages before and now this excellent info. 😁 Okay, so I had already added the Boom Mat baffles, but for the adaptors I don't know whether to get the thin looking MDF ones or these deeper ones:(https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-Focus-2005-On-MK2-MK2-5-Front-Door-6-5-17CM-Car-Speaker-Adaptor-Brackets/171220347689) I think the deeper ones will give me the best chance of fitting the speakers as you've said. Oh and washers are an amazing idea. So with all that,
  5. Thank you Lenny for the detailed reply, really appreciate it. 😀👍 I work in an NHS eye hospital in London so I understand the the lengths you have to go to, to socially distance, although it's probably much more extreme when you have such a significant role in the manufacture of the vaccine. Your job certainly sounds interesting though! I will most likely be following your and Hassen's guides very closely for this. The only reason I picked the Focal's is because they're slightly cheaper than your JL Audio speakers and I heard they might sound similar to the JL's. The only issue it I d
  6. I've been looking at upgrading the speakers in my Ford Focus MK2.5 and have decided on Focal PS 165F component speakers. Undecided on the amp, leaning towards a Rockford fosgate 4channel and will then fit a JL audio 10" sub in a custom box enclosure that I have yet to design. My issue is that I don't know if the Focal PS 165F will fit depth wise in the front doors. Does anybody here know what the max depth of a speaker can be to fit the front doors in a MK2.5 Focus? I know that @BigLen fitted JL Audio C3 650's for his front speakers, but I'm not sure what the depth of his spea
  7. An hour ago I went and filled up at a Shell Fuel station and didn't have any problems at all. Now have half a tank of fuel, so it seems it was the Asda pump that was at fault, maybe in future I'll only half press the pump because it could well be that the pump is filling too fast. Also, having looked for other images of the easy fuel system in my car, it looks like everything is normal and that's how it's always been. Thanks again everyone.👍
  8. On my first fill, I had 32miles of fuel left, after filling I turned the ignition and saw that the fuel now read 96miles of fuel, so it seems that it is reading fuel properly. My tank is only about 80miles full now after getting the car home. I have filled up at other Esso and Asda fuel stations where I always depress the fuel pump fully and have never had problems, but maybe this particular Asda Fuel station has quicker filling pumps, I'm not sure. Will an emergency nozzle work with a MK2.5 petrol focus? Only asking because I checked on ebay for one and it keeps saying on every item
  9. So today after a long hospital shift, I decided to refuel my Ford Focus MK2.5 Zetec 1.6 Petrol. After fully inserting the fuel nozzle in through the flaps I pressed fully on the pump handle which sounded like it was flowing much slower than usual. A second or two after I hear a click, so I release the pump, wait a second and then proceed to press the pump again. This time a small amount went in and the rest started spilling out and onto the forecourt. Now, I looked closer at the easy fill flaps and noticed that the fuel flap looked like it was stuck open, and the black plastic nozzle guid
  10. Thanks a lot again, the quality of the photos are excellent, like having the Haynes manual here. I do remember removing the rear and front rubber guides but didn't fully remove them because even the process of removing them half way had caused the rubber to bend and look creased but I guess that's the only way. 11.11 says "tilt it up at the rear" but surely he's tilting it up at the front. Anyway now just got to find some time to try again, but at least this time I feel more confident, 😃👍
  11. Thanks Lenny, I had already removed both screws, but the glass window still wouldn't come out all the way because it would get stuck behind the right side of the door frame. I remember trying for many hours to pull the glass up and out of the door, but did not want to pull harder or bend any more as I feared it would shatter. I searched through all of youtube for a tutorial too, but only found videos of people removing their front side windows, which looked a lot easier and more straightforward compared to the rear side window. Thank you for taking the effort to reply Lenny, this is a rea
  12. Sorry mate, been a while since I logged in on here, I never did manage to remove the glass from the rear door of my ford focus, I recently did another search online and my post came up, there's no videos either, if I ever do find a way it would really help me in applying the tint, which is still unused. So if anyone has any advice or has done this to their mk2/mk2.5 focus please leave a reply, as I'm still interested in finding out how.
  13. I will have to try it again, but this time if I run into an issue I'll post clear photos showing where the glass is being blocked. Thanks again. 🙂
  14. Yeah, the window is down all the way and the glass can be freely pulled up by hand. The car in the photo is not my own, just a photo found online that I edited and the reason is because I want to apply tinting film, it's quite an expensive film and although I have a lot of experience applying film to glass windows, I am not comfortable with pushing the film into the edges and would find it much easier to apply after removing the glass.
