Something stuck in it? I'd fill it with WD40 as it might just be a build up of dirt you can flush out.

The EML turns out to be linked to the turbo boost hose.

Booked in for new tyres Friday, I'm getting Avons as I never had a problem with them on my old Fiesta. I've also got a pair of new tailgate struts coming from the bay of E.

Tailgate struts seem a common problem on these! Had to do them on my mk1. Actually, had to do them twice as the first replacement set only lasted about 18 months. Second lot seem better.

Guy I know actually had the following advisory on his 06 plate mk2:

 

  • boot struts weak

 

Wonder if the boot fell on the testers head while he was checking the spare :shock:

Finally got round to putting some WD40 in the seatbelt fastener, it's improved it so just have to keep an eye on it. It clips in just is stiff.

New front tyres now fitted and it's made a big difference to how the car responds. I'd suspected the balancing was out as it had a wobble on the steering at higher speeds.

Ha, the car. Though now you mention it the plane would look quite dashing in that sort of electric blue colour....

The Focus appears to be losing water somewhere although there's no sign of a leak that I can see. Don't think it's OMGHGF as there is no gunge in either the coolant or oil and the car isn't overheating. Any fellow shiters have any ideas?

With common failure points on these I'd be looking at:

 

- thermostat housing

- coolant explansion tank

- water pump

It would appear to be the header tank that is leaking so will order a new one tomorrow.

New header tank ordered from the main stealers, about £33 including VAT not too bad.
