Have you ever had this problem ? Is it common on the convertible focus (my model is 2010) ?

Hi guys and gals. New to the forum but looking for a focus cc3 with the full leather interior. Got around £3500 to spend and wandered if anyone has anything for sale? Show us what you have got :)
OK so after a failure of my alternator a few months back the car let us down a couple of weeks back during the cold spell (2.0tdci) so looked at the battery that was on... (see picture) the ah and cca was only low so I've put a 80ah 800cca on and its made such a difference to the running of the car.... smoothly idles now where as had a occasional misfire when idling before... happy chappy :-)
can anyone tell me where to get a boot spoiler for my focus convertible
Evening everyone, nice easy one for you all.
I've been treating my roof seals with silicone grease I had in a tub in my van.
Anyway this is running out so I thought I'd give gummi pfledge a try as it is a favourite on here but I can only find it in spray form. Is this the one to have?
New battery fitted to mc 2009 CC this morning after the original one died. Fortunately the battery warning light gave me enough time to get a new one fitted.
Battery warning light still coming on, thought it's starting fine and running smoothly. Does this mean an alternator problem too?
Hi all i finally fitted the Xtron unit in my CC
Does anyone know what reversing camera is the correct one to go on a 2008 cc 2
And has anyone fitted one to theirs ?
Thinking of selling my 2010 CC2 TDCi as I need vehicle with 4 proper seats. Really sad letting it go but as I am 6'4", the car is strictly 3-seater for me :(
What do you think I shall ask for it? It done 66 thousands, FSH, etc.
Bonnet won't open. Yes, the curse has befallen us.
What's the drill for us CC owners? This is a 3.

I must add my DIY skills are err AWOL
This happened today.....
Neighbours shed roof I reckon it's a gonna !!
I've seen a few posts regarding tyre pressures on here, mainly saying the suggested pressures are too low.
Any advise? As to be honest I've had my 2007 2.0tdci cc3 for 3 years and I put new Goodyear efficiency grip performance on about 2 and half years ago and have swapped them front to rear once and have had no uneven tyre wear at all.
FEEDBACK from last month about our specialist car insurance scheme – Prestige Keep Moving Insurance!
‘After being with my current insurer for three years of trouble free motoring, I have now modified the car past a point where they're willing to insure it. (Any mods, at all lol) Spoke to Prestige and XXX regarding a quote, with the mods listed, Prestige have almost matched my renewal from my current insurer which didn't even cover any modifications and have beaten the best quote I could find elsewhere including them as well! XXX couldn't quote me on this occasion but (not) to worry, I'm now happy!’ Aidan Nicholas.
If your car insurance is due soon, why don’t you give us a ring?

Anyone else get this on there rear tyres. Now this is our 2nd cc and this happens on the inside edge of the rear tyres and occurred on both cars . Check yours.
Here's a question for the group.
How hard should it be to lift the boot lid?
I know they're big & heavy things but the gas struts ought to take a lot of the load away.
My partner finds it almost too much to lift & I think it's more than it ought to be.
Anyone found better than std gas struts at a sensible price?
has anyone had issues with the car and a failing main battery? I've had gremlins the last few weeks. aircon system resetting itself and now I went to treat the roof seals and the roof wont lower. Fault code of side latch failed but the boot will jog open in service mode. I'm trying to rule out things before shelling out money
We have just been reading about the new car tax regs from April...what I just do not understand is where on earth is the incentive to buy a low emission car, and for the car manufacturers to produce them, as the sales guys will, in my opinion simply include the first years tax in the new price as an incentive. Has the government gone crazy, or has Jeremy Clarkson been involved??
Has anyone put any day running lights on their cc?? Post some pics if you got any pretty please as id like to put some on mine if they look any good but i need to figure out where to put them 1st as they can look tacky & out of place if not put in the right place i think personally but would like to put some on mine if they suit the cc
Anyone know where I can get a new window electric lift for mye left front door? To as low cost as possible. I would like to get i complet..... both the wires and the engine
**now sold **
It's with some regret I'm selling my CC2 and so I have a genuine foldaway windbreak with original storage bag for sale.
Would prefer a collection/pick up but will post if buyer pays additional postage (I'd parcel it and get you an exact postage quote. It's big and heavy so it'll cost you a bit of extra money.)
£100 plus the postage.
I read on the forum that the windbreak is a standard fit for all CCs 1,2,3.
I've only taken a picture of the outside of the bag but I'm happy to send a few pics of it in or out of the car if that's needed for peace of mind.
PM me here and we can work out details.
I wonder is someone can help me. I have a 97 cc3 diesel 2000. And the engine management light has come on and on the dash it's saying esp system fault. Does anyone have any idea what could be the problem. Thankyou.
I have this error: P1924 - Fuel Additive Level Circuit Low, did anyone of you ever experience it? I'm seriously thinking of getting rid of this car :(
Is this drivers side roof panel an use to anyone out there in cc land? It's off a 2009 model blue
Hi folks.... I've only had my 2 litre petrol cc2 for just over a week so I would like some guidance on what fuel economy that I should expect. The car is telling me I'm getting 28 mpg.... is that right???
Just seeking some advice !
Need to get some of these and asking any good affordable recommendations ? And if anyone know the weight of the CC's ??
Alright guys ive purchased my first cc. However the roof doesnt work at all. No dash warnings, no noises, im hoping someone can troubleshoot me through fixing it myself before i take it to get looked at as ive heard it can start becoming expensive. Tia
Hi, I'm a fairly new CC owner and I was wondering if another 2.0 petrol owner would like to meet up around the Nottinghamshire area.
Reason being is I have a wonderful 60 plate but I think it's not running right and I have nothing to compare the power to as it feels very sluggish.
It's been to Ford who have updated the software but I think it's still underpowered.
I don't mind traveling and I'll even buy the breakfasts
Just had a new battery fitted to my 58 CC3 Diesel. Not bad for original battery but 2 heated screens, heated mirrors & heated seats have taken their toll.
Unfortunately radio's now asking for a code. Wasn't transferred from the previous owner and TCH Ford Derby want £15 and 3 days to "order" the code. Did I see somewhere on this forum or on the Focus Owners website a place where you can get them from?
Hi guys, I'm having some problems with my 2008 cc3 2.0 diesel.
She's been stood for a few weeks and when I went to start her on Thursday the battery was flatter than a flat thing. It'd been on its way for a while so I splashed out on a shiny new one.
Had to do the usual reset on the windows but everything else seemed OK . Until I came to get back in on Friday.
The drivers door refuses to unlock unless I climb in the passenger side and open it from the inside. Once opened it works fine until it gets locked again when I have to go through the passenger door rigmarole once again. Any ideas?
any tips on raising bonnet/hood on CC focus? :(
stupid key releases nothing?
Hi, do other owners suffer with severe condensation in their cars during this recent cold spell. Last 2 mornings apart from the windscreen being iced up the inside of my car has been dripping wet.
Where is the on/off airbag key location on a cc3 any ideas please?
Got some bits for sale if anyone is looking to upgrade got the focus st front bumper facelift and the side skirts £175 for the bumper 100 for side skirts posted or can collect
Ok radio at the bottom is mine in the car and the other is for sale just asking as I normally get crap Ariel signal/reception is a DAB the way to go and will it be a straight swap if anyone could help me here cheers
Has anyone tuned the 2.0 Petrol engine? If so what are the options?
Hi all, come on here looking for a bit of reassurance, had my CC2 2ltr. petrol for about 9 months now. Love it to bits but l'm worried to death. I read all the posts on here and all the electrical issues different people seem to have, This is something thats bothered me over the last few years whatever make or model of car l'v had. I'm very much old school and would be over the moon if my CC had the old plugs n points etc. I'm on the verge of selling the CC and getting an older car but as l said l love the CC. Some of the comments on here hav'nt helped me, it seems daily members are saying "I'v had enough" and are getting rid of theirs. Come on members tell me these electical issues are not as bad as l seem to think they are. Can't cope with lights flashing up on the dashboard. Help please. lol.
So what's people planing or done to there cc's..... modded/customised ?
WHAT IVE DONE SO FAR... I changed the centre console all to carbon, and headlight brows that's all I done so far...
Let's see your CC'S then.....
just asking what's the difference between these tyres..?
1)225/40 R18 92W
2)225/40 ZR18 92W xl
What the Z and the xl about ?
Help needed, the wifes cc today alarm was set off ? , and now the orange engine warning light has come on ,,,
Help and advice please. I just purchased and installed xtron android 5.1 and all the button do not illuminate. I contacted supplier from eBay today and stated
Please refer to the below info on how to make the buttons illuminate
When connected correctly the illumination function allows the buttons to illuminate at night.
Please see the forum.xtrons guide below
The orange wire is the illumination wire, this needs to be wired into the illumination circuit of your vehicle, this allows the screen to dim and the buttons to illuminate when the vehicle lights are on.
Using a multi vehicle test the connection to find one receiving a 12V feed when the vehicle headlights are switched on, connect this wire to the orange illumination wire from the stereo.
In some cases the vehicle wire will also be orange, please be sure to test carefully as damage due to incorrect installation may void the warranty, if in any doubt please seek professional advice.
Slightly annoying as stating will void warranty if I cut as it was meant to be plug and play and sold for Ford Focus. It shows on manual of changing button colour on certain models in settings but this model appears not to have it even though it cost £50 more than others for a Ford Focus they sold.
Morning all, quick question, does anyone recommend these car covers or something similar? I'm up just outside Glasgow and the temp is getting quite chilly, -2 this morning, and I just wondered if these would be any use. I've never been scared to open a car door before with frost on it but my heart flutters when I hear the 'crack'!!! :-( Cheers for any advice, Billy
Just a little thing I noticed earlier today and wanted to know if it's normal or not ? The window height ?
Anyone tried terraclean or engine carbon clean?
Looks like my DPF is at the end of its "useful" life. The car only did 63,000 miles and the "check engine" light came on!
Wondering what my options are:
1. Delete the bugger and potentially having issues with MoT
2. Replace with new one (sounds like it'll cost half of the car's price)
3. Get cheap Chinese DPF (from Cats2u and the like)
4. Throw 100 notes for deep clean and hope for the best.
5. Part-ex the car
What would you recommend?
Oh, the car is CC2 2.0 TDCI.
Last weekend successfully installed android radio and satnav including rear camera and dab options. Paid £50 for dab option but unable to pick up any radio stations on the searches. I fitted the manufacturers dab optional ariel out of site behind the pillar. Anyone had this issue and managed to successfully achieve it. I ideally wanted dab as the reception on normal radio is poor. Many thanks.
Would any one be interested in a set of 3door genuine st side skirts
1 is brand new in primer
2nd has light marks on
Both come with end caps
Can send any where in the uk
Well that's the end of an era. Some daft lady hit me up the arse on the Tyburn roundabout 2 weeks ago. Apparently uneconomical to repair, so has been written off.
Took the glove box out the see about the aux connection unclipped it and there is another junction box sellotape to the leads as well anyone know what this connection is for ? Cheers
Why do I always wait until it's freezing cold to gummi pflege my seals?❄️❄️❄️
Got this in my car the usb and aux but its not linked up !!
so just asking where it plugs into etc and if I can get it working ? Anyone know ? Cheers
WINTER TYRES/WHEELS QUESTION...
Are they worth getting ?
Sorry to sound stupid but is it just winter tyres that make it or the actual wheels have a part of it ?
Just asking if there is any good way to get the fog light covers and the wing mirror area to get it looking like the rest of the car ?? Many thanks
Good morning all, my beloved cc3 has gone, recycler paid me good money for it! With known roof issue, prob a sensor I know, but could not be bothered any more. Anyway got a couple of things for sale, I live in derby and open to offers unless stated plus shipping whatever shipping costs is what I'll charge, not making money on them again try an offer, do not want to rip anyone off,
Are these meant to be like this or is it broken ? If so does anyone know where I can get some more ?
Quick question I can't get the year to set the only years it's lets me select is from 2003-2013 !
? ANY IDEAS ?
Help! I need some positive guidance!
My CC lost compression in all 4 cylinders so needs a new engine.
An otherwise MINT CC2 09' with only 50k. Windbreaker unused!
What do you think is a fair price to sell as is?
Thanks in advance!
I looked at buying 2008 Focus cc yesterday, and there is small dents in each corner of the rear roof.
The owner says there is a design fault and it,s the hood touching when the hood opens.
This doesn't sound correct, I,m guessing the roof linkage has worn and best not to buy.
Is there adjustments on the linkage, if so anyone know how to do this or anyone that can.?
All advise welcome,
Hi all. It's turned very chilly here in York, UK. Just went out in my cc and when I returned noticed a line of liquid on the drive up to where my car was parked. Presumably my car left the trail when I reversed out. I did put my air on on as I left as it was cold and the car misted up. But the trail seems too substantial for air con in that short time. I looked under the bonnet and all fluids are fine and there is no sign of leaks. I have a fused neck so I can't bend to see under the car. Anyone else had a similar situation?
So I'm gonna need to fit a new battery as the cold set in yesterday and wouldn't start. It is the original one so it is 7years old with and quite corroded.
So just want to know if there's any thing to look out for as I do have keyless entry and a button start electric windows etc ? Is there a certain procedure to take ?
Many thanks for all input !
So want to swap the switch over but No screws on the bottom or the sides how do I get this off any one ?? I don't want to force it and brake clips etc !!
Also what's the remote control thing auto roof or something
Quick advice new one on the right but hasn't got the engine button start cable and old one has this kv-antenna ?
Do you know how to disable the airbag of the passenger seat ?
Right my final question is passenger window related.....
Problem I'm having my master switch passenger switch is temperamental on going down and will NOT come back up
So thought I must need new master switch !
But then when using the roof... the passenger window goes all the way down while the other three go down about a inch and all videos from YouTube when activating roof all windows come down about an inch roof does its business then they come back up ! Where my passenger window does not come back up ?
Is this right on the process the bit where it drops about an inch ?
Or all models different ? as I take it I do have a switch electrical prob some where !
Good evening fellow CC owners, quick question but I have an issue with my radio/nav unit, it it the Denso touch screen model all built in with climate controls via the screen or external buttons, had a battery go flat and ever since the unit hasn't worked correctly, it flickers on and off for around 5-10 mins before coming to life, my initial thought was disconnect battery and reconnect to see if the can bus had got confused, this didn't help, I changed the DVD rom drive as that didn't sound right, it hasn't cured the issue, I have also read the BT module could be at fault which was a weird thought as the car doesn't have Bluetooth built into the radio, anyhow there is a such module that I found tucked up above the glovebox mounted DVD rom drive, could this be the issue, does anyone know the true answer to solving this issue
Oh dear, there is an ominous drum like clunk coming from the side of my CC3. it's like the sound of a metal strap or component loose and banging against the inside bodywork in the compartment where the rear offside speaker is .
I've shaken everything in reach underneath and in the pumps n motors bit with the boot up, but I think I need to get the panel off inside. Took off the outside brightwork, and the lower seat cushion , but couldn't see how to get the panel off easily. Has anyone done it, or any idea what's in there banging around ?
I have been having a few battery problems with my CC, one day it's fine other days it will not start, new battery was bought but same thing happens, I checked all the forums and came up with the same answer, battery drain due to some of the systems not going to sleep, but why some days it's fine and other days it's not, after further investigation I worked out it was the neutral battery terminal, because this terminal lies inside the engine compartment, it is hard to tighten plus the fitting is different to the positive, so because I have removed the battery I need the radio code, Ford want £20 for the code for a radio I own, is there a free way of getting the code.
In Croydon and later At Dover Docks.
Hi all, l have an 08 2ltr petrol CC2, over the last couple of weeks on our miserable damp mornings on starting up she starts but runs as lumpy as hell as if shes running on 2/3 cylinders. The dash lights up stating " Engine Systems Fault". Temp and Fuel gauges although flickering fall to zero. I switched off, waited a minute or so, she fired up right as rain, l used her all day with no more interuptions. Seems it only happens on cold damp mornings, has anyone else encountered this problem and if so is there a remedy, thanks in advance.
Guys hope u can advise, I've half filled my diesel tank tonight after light came on at 50 which is unusual as normally on at 60, but my dash is saying I now only have 42 miles in tank, what's wrong do I have computer problem. ??
Help, as of 1 hour ago, my front windows don't drop when doors open, the boot won't close without giving it a really good push, dinterio light is staying on, dash light are yellow engine warning, red brake warning, very cold red snow symbol showing & --- on temperature gauge, just had a big down poor if rain, but does any body have any ideas before I ring fords to see if it can be booked in, i have a vgatescan vs-890vehicle scanner, but not used it yet, please help as been Mayer redundant this morning.
Im looking into getting a Ford Focus CC3 2L Tdci, anything to look out for? Tia
Anyone else seen the secret menu on the dash...still trying to work out what it's all for. Press and hold reset/set button on indicator stalk. Turn key to 2 position, wait till test comes on dash. Press reset/set button to go through settings
