    Focus ST

    The replacement for ol' 869
  2. Hey everyone, Ol' 869 is sold. Well kinda, I have a buyer who has comitted and is just waiting on me. Still have to remove the audio equipment and gather up all the spares and such. Oh, and return from vacation. I would like to thank many of you for your wealth of knowledge and great insight on the questions that not only myself but many others have asked over the years I have been part of this site. I would also like to thank the few who maintain and keep tabs on the site as well. I've seen many generations of the site come and go. Terry Haines has been a great source of knowledge for both the MTX as well as much of the driveline componants. Dom has been more than willing to talk both on-line as well as via phone calls to help me on more than one occasion. Thank you both. I will provide the link to this site to the new owner when the time comes and I may still pop in from time to time just to see what's up. I have pre-ordered the replacement for ol' 869 and I hope to have a VIN assigned by the time I'm back from vacation and maybe I'll be able to run my tracking number to see where it is in the build/delivery process. What is it you ask? Well, I've been waiting for the last coupl years for Ford to release the Focus ST in the states, so that's what it is. 2013 Focus ST with the ST-3 (202A) Option Package. Including the Moonroof the only other option available is the Tangerine Scream Tri-coat paint.....and yes that's the color option I chose. (Kinda' messed-up for a "just shy of 50 year old" to pick for a color). Thanks again everone, and please, enjoy the best owners group/information source for CSVT's bar none. 99Number869.........Er......Bob Foster

  4. Welcome to the .org Justin. Dom definately is the man when it comes to overall technical questions on this vehicle. You will also find alot of others that have extremly good knowledge about this vehicle. Enjoy your 'tour, I'm sure you'll like it. Just don't try to take out any moose legs and you'll be fine.

  8. Well....September 2011....Just about time to put ol' 869 in the garage due to old white hairs comin' out of the cold country.

  9. Hi Terry, Boy you were up early today. The hard plastic sleeve was what I needed to replace, so that's what I replaced with the PTFE piece I constructed myself. BTW, I just got off my modified 10 meter radio were I was talking with a few guys from Great Britain, France, Germany, and Austria. Those British Guys are a hoot on radio. Have a good day. Bob sends.....
  10. Thanks guys...BrApple and Dom, It is not the Orange button cable, I do have one but that is on the lower cable. The upper cable has the Black button end. That's O.K. though, I had some PTFE rod around the garage from another project so.... a little dremel work and drilling and viola... new bushing. I was actually very happy with how it turned out. It really fit tight, doesn't come back off without a LOT of effort, and seats without any slack between the flared end of the rod and the back side. Thanks again guys, Happy Veterans Day Tomorrow (USAF Retired) Bob sends...........
  11. Hi Terry, I hope all is well on your end. I took ol' 869 out for the first time in about 3 weeks and went for a drive when low and behold i lost the bushing on the shift cable that operates on the upper cable. I was able to find a ditch deep enough to slip it back on to the shaft, and zip tie it in place and limp back home. My question to you is: Are these plastic bushings still available, and if so would you have a good part number for them? If not, what is a good substitute? Thanks in advance, Bob
  12. Jillian, You say you heard some low noise from your Subs....... Do you have aftermarket subs? If so, are they "high drive" in other words are they powered by splicing into the rear speakers? If this is the case, you may still be running a premium sound system. What you may be running into is a intermittent grounding problem on the premium sound amplifier. I have removed the system (in line) a long time ago and have been running directly to aftermarket amps and speakers ever since. I couldn't tell you where the premium sound amp is located, but my guess would be on the passenger side of the trunk behind the trunk liner panels. Any of the wires coming from the amp screwed to the body panels may need to be cleaned and or tightened. Good luck, Bob
