  1. I think the drive shaft seal is slightly leaking on my 2005 Focus and needs replacing. Its a Focus 2005 1.6 16v Petrol, 5 Door, Zetec with about 55,000 miles. Is this common for a car of this mileage? I have attached a few photos after having a look for myself. You can see the damp patch and its causing 3 to 4 drops of oil on the drive each evening, so it seems its on it way out. I does not seem like a job i can do myself on the drive, what sort of repair bill would be reasonable to replace this seal and is there any other seals worth changing while this work is being done? Many Thank
  2. I have heko on my 4 door. They are alright but do scratch the top of your windows a little when winter grit gets on your windows. They also make a nasty rubbing noise when you open and shut your window. Also the double sided tape that comes with them aint up to the job, but the physical shape holds them in position.
  3. i missed that thanks. My focus is quite heavy. Wonder if i should fit them to my focus or sell them on mmmmmmm..... Its just a 1.6 zetec with 110bhp or whatever its got which aint high performance.

  5. Thanks for taking the time to look for that, i will give it a go now. I tried removing the bulb without removing the glove box but it looks like the gaps a little small to remove the bulb.
  6. I have had my mk 2 55 plate zetec for 2 years and have just put up with a squeakiness noise to the rear of my car. It sounds like my parcel shelf is squeaking but i cant quite pinpoint it as it only happens when i am driving at slow speed. Its definitely not something mechanical and it just some of the interia squeaking. Any Ideas :roll:
