    Breaking Focus 2003

    Hello! The car which I have owned for a month just failed it's MOT. And when I say failed, I don't mean it got a question wrong. I mean it didn't bring a pen, and it fell off it's chair before the exam started. So it is probably now worthless. And I'm considering breaking it. It seems like it would be an interesting thing to do. I'm a classic car nut with some limited knowledge of cars and mechanics, but mostly from the pre-electronic era (I have a 1973 MGB). I am prepared to listen to the "don't do it!" responses, I'm not saying this is definitely happening. But please consider that I have a fair bit of space (large garage, large drive) and plenty of time (self-employed and not busy), and I'd be doing this because it interests me AND because I want to make some money. So I don't care about the hourly rate, like if it takes me two days to remove a part that sells for £8. Does anyone have experience? Any horror / success stories? Anywhere I should start? And, does anyone have any idea at all, no matter how vague, how much a 2003 Focus LX might fetch as parts? It's 130k miles, bumped, cracked and scratched body, a chassis that needs some welding (hence the MOT) and a lot of unknowns (since I've barely had the bonnet up). And if I don't break it, what can I expect to get from a scrapyard? Any information would be very welcome.

    Timing Belt Snapping

    Hello All, Just thought i would share this experience with you lads and ladies. Yeserday I had my timing belt snap on me. I have a 2010 Ford Fiesta Zetec S 1.6 TDCI at 97000. I just want to warn people that the 125,000 miles/ 10yrs that ford suggest might just be at a stretch. I suggest get it done much earlier to avoid what i'm about to go through lol. when i bought the car it put it through a full service and because of the manufacturers recommended time and milage suggested frame the belt was left alone. i ran the service at 94000. according to my mechanic i might have to replace all 16 valves. he is first going to order the timing belt change kit from ford then do a compression test. if it passes then happy days if not then the head will have to come off and valves replaced. lets just say this isn't going to be cheap at all. Just giving you all a warm warning.... Regards

  5. Hi all, So you may (or may not know) I replaced my mk3 Fiesta with a Mk6 Fiesta. I've been trying to sell my mk3 since October (54K Genuine, MOT till Aug - £600) now in my opinion I think that's a fair price HOWEVER, two things are 'technically' wrong with it. The first is the passenger lock which doesn't unlock from the outside, yeah, I could just replace the door but it's just effort when I did fine without it. The second is the window passenger winder which snapped. Needs a new regulator but no points of fixing it again because It didn't fuss me. Now, I want rid of it, in your opinions what would be the most beneficial when it comes to money vs time and effort. For example, 'Selling the vehicle you may get £xxx for it and will sell' or 'You could break it and get £xxx for just the engine'. Your opinions are key as I'm not sure what I want to do with it! Cheers, Mark
