New Focus Owner! Few problems

Wazup people, my names Ricky, and i just bought myself a 00 orange ZX3. I'm planning on using it as my DD but also as a little project. Its not really moving right now cause i got a little problem with the brakes, they have locked up, don't know whether its the calipers or the master cylinder, I was hoping someone here might be able to help me figure that out.

Anyways, right now I'm slowly converting it to an SVT well cosmetically anyways. I've already got the SVT bumpers and sideskirts on and the seats too. As of now the motors stock.

Just wanted to introduce myself, plus I would like your opinion of my problem.
Thanks!

Welcome to FF! I'm going to move your thread to the Ford Focus and general car chat area, where you will get better responces for this thread.
As for the problem with your brakes, check out the tech chat area: here

IF your friend is having trouble posting, he still might be able to post in the feedback and help area, where other site staff can see whats wrong and help get him actively involved on the site.
you can find that part of the forum here: feedback and help center

Also, your friend should be able to post there, but only him and moderators can view posts, so if you direct him there, and don't see his post, don't worry!

Welcome to FF!! Check out our many technical forums and stickied threads at the top leading to How-To's written by our members. Here's a few to help you out, but the Forums button is in the upper right hand corner of the screen above the Focus

Focus Technical Chat: for maintenance problems like your brakes
Wheels, Tires, Brakes, and Suspension: More for upgrades, but you can probably get help there as well.
Zetec Performance Chat: Performance discussions about your engine, transmission, exhaust, etc. There's a lot of How-To's on the Zetec as it was the more performance oriented engine in the early Foci.


Hmmm Shamrock, something screwed up at 11:34 pm. Keep up the double posting and I'll have the recycle bin moderator's attorney send you an email.
