  1. Replacing Front Seat ?

    MK1 Interior Mods & Upgrades
    disconnecting the battery should reset the computer. as far as i can tell from Chilton's, the PCM is the manager of the airbag system and it will lose all codes when the battery is disconnected. it doesn't specifically mention airbags, but it does say that it will go dead and then reprogram...
  2. Replacing Front Seat ?

    MK1 Interior Mods & Upgrades
    hmm, i'm not quite understanding the problem or maybe the real question here. why would making all the connections with no power and then repowering set off the airbag? people's batteries go dead or they disconnect them for working on the car all the time. the air bags don't blow when the power...
  3. Replacing Front Seat ?

    MK1 Interior Mods & Upgrades
    Chilton's recommends unhooking the battery any time you are dealing with electrical connections having to do with or around the airbags. then waiting for at least 5 minutes before proceeding. better to be safe than sorry in this case i would think.

    sad that this should happen anywhere, but especially here in the bay area!! diversity and tolerance are suppossed to be stronger here than most places. just proves again that all groups of people have their a-holes! i agree with the 911 solution for many reasons with the major one being that...
  5. help with cig lighter problem?

    MK1 Interior Mods & Upgrades
    just thought i would update this. it turns out it was definitely the lighter and not the outlet. another member and i traded my power outlet plug for his lighter from a focus and the one i got from him works beautifully!! so, does anybody need a flying lighter? [grinking]

    MK1 Focus
    yea, looks great in the overal pics - very sporty! not sure i've ever seen a kit that isn't the same on both sides. very interesting concept.and i completely agree with you on the drop - why waste all that work just for a very minor asthetic enhancement? you're going to get enough oooohhs and...
  7. thinking of cleaning up the back end.... suggestions?

    MK1 Focus
    not a big fan of debadging but how about this - move the zx5 and ses badges to the indented area around the license plate. leave the focus badge off. i admit the the FOCUS with all caps is not near as nice as the older ones. you can either mount them both on one side with the ses under the zxr5...

    Ford Focus Builds & General Showroom
    adding the shift surround and the sills really adds to the total look! i really want to say it looks 'sharp' but sounds corny given your user name, lol and if all these people only realized how ultra cool that is for Delaware!!

  11. my svt focus pwned by wreck

    Focus SVT
    most important thing is that everybody is safe! i once had a similar accident in a shopping center parking lot where i was essentially in your positiion and the insurance companies agreed that i was the one at fault when in fact the person was going around me at excessive speed and in a lane...
  12. Body Kit Ideas

    MK1 Focus
    no, i realize that you were looking to mix and match. i'm just pointing out that there are some potentially huge shipping fees involved in doing so. i'd check that aspect out before i got too carried away with the idea. that's all i was trying to say. (whereas you can usually get a whole kit...

    the grades should be what you are striving for anyway. if you can get a nicer car out of doing something you ought to be doing for yourself anyway, then what have you got to lose? get the grades, get the car and then sell one to fix up the other!!

  16. Body Kit Ideas

    MK1 Focus
    well. what you've got going here really is a decision of whether you want to look good or have a sleeper. a 'real' sleeper looks like [:)][:)][:)][:)][:)] - rust would be a welcome addition as long as it's only on the body. the worse it looks, the more it hides the beast inside. that's provided...

    anybody done this that lives in a poor reception area? i live in an area blocked by hills and we only get a limited # of stations to start with. thankfully one of them is my favorite -http://www.1077thebone.com/ but being able to get clear reception all the way to work from my house is one...
  20. pro & cons of using soap with wax in it?

    Auto Washing, Detailing & Paint Protection
    yea, that's my guess as well. which is cool for my purposes. i wonder about wax buildup and such. i wonder if the cheap wax in the soap harms or enhances the later application of wax any. not just in appearance but in the ability of the real wax to adhere and protect evenly. would i be better...
