  2. I'm living in Germany at the moment but may stay for the foreseeable. I have my UK Ford Focus estate mk1 with me. I'm interested in getting it registered in Germany even though I've heard how much of a pain this is to do. My question is, does anyone know what actually needs to be changed to pass a German MOT/TuV? I've heard it's just the lights (front and rear). For example, I know that the current headlights units are adjustable to some extent (up and down). But do they have any lateral movement? Enough to adjust them to driving on the right? I also know that the rear lights need swapping so that the reverse light and fog lights are swapped round. If I buy German rear light units, is the wire work straightforward? Any advice would be gratefully received. Danke schön! Ian

  7. Ford cosworth as first car

    Hi guys. I'm Jason from South Africa. I'm 18 years and starting to think about a first car. I've always had a thing for 80's era cars. So did all my older nephews. Of course my first car had to be a sierra cosworth, but they are so rare here in SA people ask you absolutely insane amounts of money.I reqlised that it won't work. So, my solution is to buy a 5 door xr6 and make it look as near to a cosworth as possible. My question is thus: Can I fit all the parts from the cosworth,like the iconic double wing and front bonnet gills on a 5 door sierra xr6?...and do u think I'm wasting my time, cause some people do

  10. Anyone know what fault code 030801 is on a 2008 focus 1.6 tdci getting engine malfunction warning
  11. Hi Just bought a low mileage 2.0 petrol mk3 auto from a auction, as a runaround. Drove it 180 miles home and found a couple of issues. First one is a low throttle hunting/ought running - bit of pressure on the throttle and it passes through it but back off again and it is jerking around again. Next issue is that it won't rev past 4000 - it's like there is a cut-out. Found this out on the motorway when I tried kickdown to overtake - interesting moment... The car feels a bit down on power throughout and you have to build up speed gradually (0-60 in five minutes)...... I'd really appreciate any advice - the car has only done 50k and is in great nick, cosmetically, but I don't need a money pit... Many thanks for reading this Bob
  12. mk4 fitting a trip computer

    How is the RS turbo one calibrated difrent?
  13. Got a mk4 2.2 titanium x sport. Wanting a more a more aggresive, wider stance. Thinking about 25mm spacers on the front and 20mm on the back to bring the tyres out to the top of the arches. Has anyone done this or had any problems doing this please?
  14. If its the traditional ford style thermostat housing with the removable faceplate there is usually a rubber seal between the two mating faces that perishes very common problem on a lot of fords
  15. Further to the first post, It seems it is the actual thermostat housing. Where it fits onto the engine block itself, assume it is a gasket or O-ring inside?
  16. Hi, I noticed a recently that I lost my heating inside. I checked the coolant and it was nearly empty. Topped it up to Max and within 20 miles down the motorway to get home it was down to quarter of a tank of coolant left which is a considerable loss. Checked yesterday with the engine running parked up to see If i could see any visible leaks but found nothing but residue (pink / coolant) but no actual seepage during the running even when engine was up to temperature. Today i did the same however now I can see the coolant seeping out (seeps out in surges with bubbles). I originally thought the leak was from a pipe just lower down (returns to bottom of radiator near fan) as i could feel lots of coolant there with my finger and it was pink everywhere with residue but then I didn't see the seeping above it, (which is another pipe but attached to the large diameter pipe below within the same block ) until i started the engine so it seems it was just running down from there onto the lower pipe. I have attached some pictures to show where the leak is coming from. I was wondering if anyone here has had the same issue and how much it would cost to repair? Many thanks
  17. Hey Guys, So some days ago I bought a mK1 Ford Mondeo 1.8 Diesel. At first, everything was working perfectly until I couldn't change the gears anymore. The clutch pedal stopped working (i pressed it and it didn't come back). So I opened the bonnet and started looking around. And I found this box kindathing just hanging around. so does anyone knows where it goes?? or how to fix it?????

  26. Hi there everyone

    Hi all, My name is Neil from Manchester, I currently drive a Land Rover Discovery but I am looking at getting a 2012 MK 4 TDCi Titanium in the next week or two.
  27. Hello. I need some help in finding a good independent ford garage in London (I live in hackney) do some work on my 06 focus please. Its a 1.6 ti vct engine and I needed to get the following done: -timing belt, tensioner and water pump replacement (is now on 66000 miles) -replace the thermostat as the coolant and engine temp goes down when I drive. ( I understand these are different in ti vct engines) -auxiliary belts for alternator and ac (need help to find these online also) Looking at my Haynes manual I have seen these online which seem to be what I need https://www.toolstoday.co.uk/sealey-petrol-engine-setting-locking-kit-ford-1-6ti-vct-belt-drive?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI39D868v12QIVpLDtCh2DngfcEAQYASABEgJI-_D_BwE https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Genuine-Ford-Timing-Belt-Kit-Water-Pump-Timing-Belt-1780142-1-25-1-4-1-6/401242291945?epid=1837160328&hash=item5d6be77ee9:g:I3AAAOSw37tWCl6l https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/FORD-FOCUS-MK2-1-6-16V-TI-VCT-THERMOSTAT-COMPLETE-HOUSING-1345512/221964898637?_trkparms=aid%3D222007%26algo%3DSIM.MBE%26ao%3D2%26asc%3D43782%26meid%3D7f20c44a49db4d3cbe48b85f784a76db%26pid%3D100623%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D6%26sd%3D222732613949%26itm%3D221964898637&_trksid=p2047675.c100623.m-1 but wanted to know if a garage would have the needed timing and vct tools or should I buy them? Also as this is a complex job do you have any recommendations for ford garages in east london and how much it this all likely to cost please. Thanks Sean
