wow, my post was almost a year ago! sorry =/ , i didn't bother trying to fix it after i got stuck at that point (since i never got an answer from anyone). i had a lot going on, and my light is still on :) not to mention i don't have a scan tool to erase/read codes. if i remember correctly though, i may not have even safely removed all the 'reserve power' in the first place, cuz all i did was disconnect the battery; after reading up on AllData at my job, i was supposed to remove a fuse or relay too i believe.. so it's a good thing i didn't bother with it then. Good luck, and let me know if you got it working!

Great Post

2001 Ford Focus SE Station Wagon. Hey, I used your instructions to replace my clockspring because my turn signals would not cancel. Sure enough, the black plastic tab on the clockspring that cancels the turn signals was broken off. Using your instructions, it took me only 45 minutes and that was because it was on a hot day and I took some rest breaks. Also used the Ford Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) #04-5-5 which indicates that a 9mm spacer has to be installed to prevent the problem from reoccurring. Bought the Clockspring from O'Reilleys and the spacer from the Ford dealership. Spacer costs $20 at Ford. Great instructions and great pictures....THANKS!!!

Nope, can't be done as the photos missing were never in the FF system memory.

When deleted from Photobucket or other hosting service the links are no longer useful.

Occasionally an OP may show up and create new links/post fresh photos, but that doesn't happen often.

We are getting more direct photos on here now as reduced data phone shots are posted. The original system for full data links through a hosting service is still the main photo method though.

Tech keeps changing, quoting posts including photos on here was once a VERY bad thing to do to your friends as reading became VERY slow without a high speed connection. STILL is regularly, as folks have forgotten and a whole page of multiple photos can take a while to load even now.

Yeah I have folders in photobucket sorted by vehicle so when I link them to a forum I don't accidentally move them after and break the link.
I am sure storage on the forum server is limited so saving all the photos from the how-to's then relinking from the ff server would probably not be very effective.
