  1. New Members Welcome Area
    Hello everyone. I've just joined 'TalkFord' though I've been driving my 2004 Focus Zetec automatic for a couple of years. I inherited it from my Dad and have been loving it ever since. I have a question, but I am not sure which forum to post it on. I guess it is considered bad manners to post...

    I am trying to identify the part name for this bracket which has snapped where it screws in just above the spark plugs. (Attach a couple of photos) Any idea what the part is so I can try and find a replacement please. Many thanks!

    Hi Has anyone had this problem and can offer some advice please? The rear wiper on my 2005 UK Mk2 Focus 1.6 has started not parking correctly. Sometimes it will park halfway through a normal cycle, sometime it will complete a cycle and a bit, other times it will pause and then carry on later...

    My missus has a 2008 focus 1.6 tdi manual transmission and she's just got a check engine light and I have and its still there, the diagnostic has came up with "reverse inhibit control circuit malfunction" now I know this is more than likely a solenoid or sensor issue, but has anyone else come up...

    Hi, I have a Focus 2.0 TDCI 2006 and yesterday I heard a knocking coming from the front when I was turning my steering either way on full lock and or when I pressed the clutch pedal. Today the knock has gone when the steering is turned but is still there when I press the clutch pedal. Once fully...

    Hey, I would like to know if I can swap my dashboard from a 2005, 1.6 ti-vct to 2010 1.8 tdci model, I got one from my friend and I am not sure if I can install it to my petrol car. Will it effect the operation because it is from a diesel car or will it work as well as the old one ?

    Hi all. I bought a new (to me) Focus which I love, but it comes with a problem. Well, actually it has a few which have surfaced, but the one which needs sorting is the cloud of blue smoke when cold. When I start the car in the morning or if it's been sat all day at work (so when it's cold)...

    Hi all... This is my last hope, I'm stuck and at a loss and have no where else to turn. Help me talkford, you're my only hope. Basically after the key in my 2006 Ford Focus Ghia wouldn't turn beyond the second place I decided to attempt a fix, initially I thought it was the locking cylinder...
  11. Focus Mk4 Mechanical
    Hi all, I have the new Ford Focus Mk4 (68 reg) ST-Line X. This morning I noticed my hill start assist has randomly stopped working. No warning message or anything. Usually, if I pushed down firmly on the brake pedal a small green "a" symbol would appear above the digital speedometer within...

    Hi! This one's just for fun but can anyone identify the two ports that are above the 1.8/2.0L stencil and blocked with two white-ish bungs on the back of the 1.8/2.0L zetec manifold? Are they for anything or will bunging mine be fine? Do they need a pipe to link them together? Why do I have a...

    Hi I had the turbo replaced in my 2010 Ford focus 1.6Tdci last summer and now I am getting P0299 and P0234 conditions at the same time. I expect this is probably due to a faulty turbo control valve rather than seized vanes. But was hoping someone could shine some light on this. Cheers

    Hi everyone, The swirl flaps of death are marching :) I got the manifold opened and checked the flaps and they are wearing out, especially the one on the right port. Obviously, Im not gonna buy new manifold from the dealer - so instead I was planning to get just the flaps(god knows where) or...

    does anyone have a suggestion? I have a problem with my focus headlights and rear sidelights. Recently i noticed the green headlight indicator light and the blue full beam indicator light in the binnacle not lighting up anymore but wasn't bothered much about it until I noticed the the OSF...

    Hi all, first time posting here! I have a 2002 Focus 1.6L Petrol, which I have owned for over 7 years now, and have undertaken all mechanical work rather than pay a garage to do it, however after failing its MOT on two rubber boots (suspension ball joint and steering rack, both nearside), I...

    Hello, first time post I just bought an old 02 manual focus hatchback TDDI, it's in good condition and looks well looked after, drives well. The problem I have is at low speeds the brakes feel like they don't have any assisted power and I have to really stomp my foot down, at higher speeds the...

    A quick and easy question as a first post (hopefully!) I've fitted a Ford OE DAB aerial to my 2010 MK2.5 Focus to go with my Xtrons head unit and DAB stick (following the Fordwiki instructions). While the screen mounted aerial that came with the head unit was terrible, the OE DAB aerial doesn't...
