The pug is soon to be off to the great gig in the sky as I'm sick of seeing it. Time to tick off some of the jobs on the 924.

Only done around 60 miles in it so far, but I like it. Love the sound of the 5cyl engine, might have to ease up on the right foot otherwise its going to cost a fortune in fuel.

Haven't done much to the st really, just some tidying up and a service.
Treated it to some new wheel nuts and some genuine wheel caps

The wheels were all pretty much in the same condition but this was the worst.

Will look far better after a wash, but already looks tons better.

Had some new tyres fitted as the Evergreen wellys that were fitted were quite scary. Don't understand why people cheap out on tyres.
The difference after fitting a set of Michelin pilot sport 4 was incredible, well worth the money.

While it was up in the air I did the mini service.

The oil filter was a bit awkward to get to, tucked away unter the intake and requires a 36mm socket to remove,but thanks to 924 ownership I already had such a socket.

The spark plugs were not to bad but still required the crossover pipe removing and plastic engine cover.

Fitted the RS style vac pipe the other day. This simplifies the servo vaccum setup and makes thibgs a bit tidier.

OK so I've not updated this for a while, this is taken from my thread on the Focus st owners forum.

Visiting family this weekend finished off the front passenger side wheel bearing, it was a bit grumbly to start with but another 350 miles on top saw it off. So this morning pulled the knuckle / hub carrier off and dropped it off at a local garage that had a press and correct adapter for the gen2 style front bearing / hub.

Ordered from ecp online Saturday afternoon and collected from the local branch this morning, I was going to get a genuine one from ford but after some reading it was suggested that fag were standard fit so went with it and also meant I could get it this morning rather than in a few days.

Picked the carrier with new bearing / hub fitted this afternoon but by the time I was home it was dark and the rain had started again, will get it fitted tomorrow.

Well it took longer than I'd have liked but it's done now, also managed to get the gearbox oil changed and fitted the new brake pads.
Getting the carrier off was a bit of a lady dog to be fair and there are some pictures missing, mainly because I was pissed off. The drive shaft was corroded into the hub and rather than risk damaging anything by pulling or whacking it I removed the whole thing with driveshaft still attached and took the whole thing to the garage. Anyway got it back all sorted and put it back together.

Once that was all done and buttoned up i got on with refilling the gearbox.

Found it much easier using the from above method rather than struggling to get at the level plug. Also found an easy way to fill it without the need to keep squeezing the bottle.

Pull the straw out and put 2 small holes in the bottom of the bottle, this allows the oil to drain out at just the right pace so it doesn't overflow out of the hole. It also allowed me to start on the brake pads while it was doing its thing.

The brake pads really were on their arse, and I think some cheap nasty ebay specials.
Replaced them with some motorcraft pads and already the brakes feel better which is nice.
I also removed the rest of the Symposer ducting from under the scuttle panel while it was off to allow access to the brake fluid reservoir, the engine bay looks much tidier now.
