    Its not hard to get a new capacitor for it, just need to get the value of it from the still working one, then look for the best tolerances you can get from digikey. The hard part would be trying to solder it if the pad is gone. If you have a proper soldering iron and a pair of good tweezers it...
  2. key fob

    Focus RS Discussions
    Yep that is for sure the problem, part of the matching network going to the antenna. Can’t tell for sure but it looks like one the solder pads ripped off too. How handy are you with a soldering iron? It may be possible to get a connection to the trace still and re-solder it. Did you find the...

    The battery needs to be a CR2032, any 2032 will fit but will not play nice (LIR2032, ML2032). Also make sure you are buying a decent brand like a Sony, Energizer etc. Some off brand Alibaba special could have a different discharge curve and be tricking the electronics.

    Reprogramming a key will not change the range, unless you are changing the firmware on they key so definitely not that. Did you replace it with a new battery? If you have a multimeter, a brand new CR2032 will measure around 3 - 3.2V, mid life the battery will be 2.7-2.8V. When you replaced the...
  5. Sync 4 to get Wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Will our car be upgradeable?

    I like the idea, just need to shrink the hardware to the size of a wireless mouse receiver then I’d be 100% on board
  6. Euro spec splash gaurds

    If that’s for the pair then it works out to ~130 CAD after shipping. Thanks for sharing!
  7. Ordering Winter Wheels TPMS Sensor Issue

    Focus RS Discussions
    You don't need the tool if you want to go through the built in learning function. With the car on but engine off (press clutch to start message on info screen) press the hazard button six times then go through the dance of deflating each tire till the car honks at you, its better documented...
  8. Euro spec splash gaurds

    $200 for two pieces of plastic that I can't even buy.... maybe I'll try getting something 3D printed. Thanks for finding the exact thing I was thinking of though!
  9. Euro spec splash gaurds

    Focus RS Discussions
    In my search for which mud flaps I wanted I came across something interesting. I might be wrong about this but I noticed that all the euro spec cars have a little splash guard where the rear bumper meets the body in the wheel well. I noticed a few small rock chips on my car at this exact point...
  10. Tire Rack shows the OE winter tires are closeout/discontinued.

    Focus RS Discussions
    Interesting I assumed that they would be the same size. Haven't needed to buy new winters yet so I never really looked. That being said if they are smaller than the summer maybe going to a 45 aspect ratio would be better for pothole protection in winter if you don't use chains

    Michelin's website doesn't list a 235/45R18 PA4 anymore so we may be out of luck there. They do offer a 235/40R18, 245/45R18 and the 225/45R18, so you're either a skinnier tire, wider tire or a smaller tire diameter. I think some people have run 245 widths for their summers on stock rims, but...
  12. New Canadian RS

    Introductions
    First thing that needs to be addressed is mud flaps, as this car will be too much fun not to drive in winter. Near Calgary Alberta
  13. New Canadian RS

    Introductions
    I have been wanting one of these for years and finally did it. Brought home a FW 2016 RS and it does not disappoint!
