    KA mk2 key

    Yep apparently there's a Timpsons outside our local big Tescos so i'll nip in & see what they can do.

    KA mk2 key

    Messaged the bloke on eBay about the key above-he said some keys do & some keys don't have transponders, if it doesn't have a slot for a transponder it doesn't have one.

    KA mk2 key

    Well i found a blank-but it does indeed state it needs a transponder fitting so i guess i'll have to take it to a garage to be done? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/123108989460?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

    KA mk2 key

    No-just a solid black plastic fob which doesn't seem to have anything in it, or come apart. No central locking either it's the base model.

    KA mk2 key

    Ok isn't this just a key though-no gizmos inside or is there?

    KA mk2 key

    How much should i be paying for a new key for the mk2 KA-not remote just normal key-i only have one need a spare-and who would do one-cheers.
  8. Right oil not apparently coming from turbo-garage washed down old oil and cleaned up-fixed other little bits-all done for £90 was expecting a bad phone call but he rang and said it's mot'd-happy days. Will keep an eye on engine bay for signs of a leak.
  9. Yeah i did think that-i'm just a pessimist lol so if it isn't the turbo i'll be happy.
  10. Hopefully-we'll see what the garage says next week. I have found a new turbo on eBay with fitting kit for £410 which seems ok-although fitting one looks like a right pain?
  11. Had a quick look on eBay and literally every new turbo i looked at was from China-even though i clicked UK only-hate that...
  12. We bought 2 years ago for £750 which seemed cheap compared to others advertised. Prob value it the same now. Would prefer new/rebuilt for peace of mind. Local garage would have to fit it. Would keep the car as long as it's feasible to do so, have spent a few hundred on bits since owning and its been pretty reliable and good on fuel so dont wanna have to scrap it-got a quote of £200 scrap value. Could buy something else £500-1000 but that could open a whole new can of worms lol. Mates having a look next week it may not be the turbo just a leak, but way things have been going for me lately i won't be surprised...
  13. I have a 58 plate Focus Econetic daily, and after just failing mot due to excess oil around the turbo amongst other minor things, what would i be looking at price wise for either a new turbo fitted or repaired, and what type of turbo should i be looking for? Thought it may not be worth doing and getting something else-but if i do fix it i know thats gonna be ok for a few years and could be buying something else with problems? Fact we've just been given notice on our rented accommodation doesn't help either...
  14. Are they RS alloys or Capri Laser as the nuts are different.
  15. Are these the same ones they had help developing with 105speed then fooked them off? I had a 105speed fanimold and system for a xflow'd mk1, and Anglia and both were delicious.
  16. You'd have to be stupid to ever buy a car without at least viewing it in person, unless it was a brand spanker.
  17. Just trying to price up all my bits-got a virtual full race L block all steel dry sump Lotus with 45's, race clutch, ex manifold, sump tank pretty much ready to drop in. Bought it years ago from Cornish sprinter Terry Truscott who competed it very well and just been stored since.
  18. Had my MOT last week for the KA-was told by the tester that he's been having loads of cars in recently with engine faults, and ecu codes etc flashing up due to the new E10 fuel. He mentioned it as he was doing my emissions and it was playing up a bit so i told him i'd just filled up with the new fuel, and he told me to use Super instead-so it is definitely having effects.
  19. We have an '08 Focus Econetic-got it January 2020 after my Clio diesel went to the giant scrappy in the sky. Seemed a bargain, saw on eBay fairly local at only £750 as was searching for something with only £30 road tax bracket and it seemed to fit the bill. Phoned the guy as it had just come on eBay cheap, made an offer for £700 with proviso we'd get train the next day to collect from Plymouth. Was as described, slight dink on drivers rear door which was fine as using for daily hack. Drove home that evening lovely. Only thing is-every now and then the engine warning lights come on-get an EEPROM code and sort of limp home mode. Switch off and restart and it seems to clear it-cant seem to find much on the code thrown up-and a diagnostics reader plugged in throws up no codes either-only thing i have managed to find online is a possible fault with the actual dash. Anyway it's a nice drive-great on fuel and so far bar the bits for MOT (new lower arms, pads etc.) has been a good buy.
  20. I went out to get some last weekend-my only panic being i was running on fumes. Local Saino's had a mild queue (10 mins wait), no diesel at the time, only 2 pumps with regular unleaded which i run, and normal supply of Super unleaded. Same media crap with the bog rolls and pasta etc. last year...
