Have had coolant loss over the past weeks in my 2012 1. 6 Focus. Spent over 60 — UK Ford Owners

Have had coolant loss over the past weeks in my 2012 1.6 Focus. Spent over £60.00 in replacement coolant to keep me mobile so far.

Fault has been traced to a leak in the heater matrix with leak pooling in a gully under drivers seat, and leaking out through drain holes. My regular garage have recommended this repair be completed by a Ford Garage as outside their expertise. At least they are honest. According to my Local garage the Ford garage I am going to have two other Focuses in with the same fault, so obviously a common problem

Matrix costs £157.00 and Ford will need the car over a couple of days to confirm that this is indeed the problem and then make necessary repairs. Looking at over £300.00 but needs to be done. frown emoticon

    Ford Escort Stowage Box, cosworth, rs turbo , rs2000 — UK Ford Owners

    New, genuine , still in the box , MEGA rare Tray Stowage Box Escort.

    This part is no longer available from Ford dealers and it sits on top of the parcel shelf supports below the parcel shelf

    It's really handy for storing items and keeping your boot tidy, it has straps to allow you to attach an umbrella to it.

    There are 2 adjustable dividers and from the fitting instructions you can see that a warning triangle and first aid triangle will fit in it perfectly, it has a black/grey flocked finish.

    Would make a great finishing touch to a concours Cossie, GTI , RS2000 , RS turbo

    This part is suitable for all 3 and 5dr Hatchback models from 1981-2001,

    it is not suitable for Cabriolet, Estate,

    Will only post it with track & trace.

    £ 180

      FOR SALE

      Zetec 1.8 130hp engine for sale.

      I was originally going to use this in my mk1 fiesta so I have already modified the sump. It's been striped down for a rebuild and an inspection and everything is A ok.

      I was going to paint and rebuild it using all new gaskets and new water pump so the engine is still striped down ready for a rebuild.

      I'm looking to get my money back so the price is what it owes me.£250 no offers

      I do have the rest of the car that the engine came in which still has all the wiring and ecu's at extra cost.I gave £500 for everything but some parts have been sold so the rolling shell would be another £100.

      So £350 for everything

      I'm located in newcastle under lyme staffordshire st5.

            A warning to be careful about drink driving as we are getting close to... — UK Ford Owners

            A warning to be careful about drink driving as we are getting close to Christmas and Plod are out there checking on people. Last night I was out for a few drinks. One thing lead to another and I had a few too many pints and then went onto the brandy. Not a good idea. Knowing I was over the limit, I decided to leave my car at the pub and took a taxi home. Sure enough, I passed a police checkpoint at the top of the road where they were pulling over cars and performing breathalyser tests. Because I was in a taxi they just waved it past. I arrived home safely and without incident, which was a real surprise as I've never driven a taxi before and I am not even sure where I got it from...

                    Hiya all x

                    We at Team Social Life are raising donations towards this event.

                    Us as a team are trying to make up 100+ Christmas party bags to give out FREE to all the young children at this event.

                    So far it's just been my son Kieran Wright and myself that has put all the money in for it.

                    Av Norton has come forward with donations so far and I appreciate it x

                    We are also after new children's games for our raffle on the evening all proceeds are going to a children's charity.

                    Please please can any off you help us.

                    I know it's near Christmas and money is tight but think of these children that wake up Christmas day and to them it's another normal day as they have no family to spend it with.

                    Any donations whether it's little gifts or toys or games or money would be most appreciated x

                    Thank you x

                    Also don't forget to come along and enjoy a fun full evening xxx
