Must be something in the air, I did mine today too.

Rust already showing on the oil filter after only 6 months on the car - I assume caused by road salt.

Also changed the oil pressure switch as the dash light was working intermittently at best. Less than £5 for a genuine Ford item, correct operation has been restored.

Cheers, and you with yours!

Any update on your boot leak?

Seems sorted now I check it occasionally and it was dry even after the storms, sealing the bumper to the rear panel (leaving a gap in the middle) sorted it. Also changing the tyres seems to have pretty much got rid of the slightly "squishy" feeling at the back although I'm sure the bushes are probably a little soft.

I've got a really growly rear wheel bearing, off side I think. The noise developed recently but has got a lot worse today. Not really ideal as I work for the emergency services, so am an "essential" worker and have a 60 mile round trip to work and back. Arse.

Where in the country are you? Could you use a car for a while?

Cheers guys, a local garage managed to fit me in this morning, bearing supplied and fitted for £46 :)

it was the near side, very noisy and with a lot of free play, definitely needed doing!

I really need to wash under the arches!

Don’t lift those arch liners! They’ll be holding the inner wings together on a Mk1 Focus!

I know I don't dare!! I've checked underneath and from the inside and all is solid but yeah the liners are staying put!
