  1. Suspension/Wheels/Brakes/Steering (Mk3 Mondeo)
    Hey all, I've got some eBay replacement bolts for the inner end of the 'tennis racquet' arms that the springs rest in. The eccentric on the bolts is 90 degrees out of phase, if the widest part of one washer points to 12 o'clock, the widest of the other to 3 o'clock. Is this right? Or have I...
  2. Ford Fiesta Mk7 Forum - (2008-2017)
    Searched various forums for some answers on this but not been lucky enough to find an answer. About 3 months ago a quiet knocking started to occur when driving, not massively noticeable and would be easily drowned out by low volume radio. It was coming from drivers side and sounded as though it...
  3. Mechanical (Ka Mk1)
    Replaced front suspension arm today. Was bed enough getting it out and a real nightmare getting the new one in. Once complete started car and it made a noise as if it was missing, but it wasn't. Realised car was in gear... but it started. No drive in any gear. My thoughts. There was a fair...

  7. Drivetrain (Mk4 Mondeo)
    Evening all, My car's getting on in miles with 200,000 fast approaching. Over the past year I've found the suspension has become quite soft, a lot of body roll around corners and losing grip quite easily. I have looked at the usual suspects with suspension and had it checked at the local...
  8. Ford Fiesta Mk6 & Fusion (UK) Forum - (2002-2008)
    Hi folks. New to the forum. We started to notice a rattle in the front suspension of my wife's 2007 Fiesta Zetec. I opened the hood and gave the car a jiggle. The centre top nut which holds the spring in place seems loose and moves up and down as the car does but it's not bottomed out in the...

  10. Suspension/Wheels/Brakes/Steering (Mk3 Mondeo)
    Hi Folks, I've had my mk3 ST TDCI for over 5 years and lowered it on 40mm Eibach years ago. I've noticed for a long time now that the general ride of the car is very, very harsh. There is no give in the suspension at all over bump/potholes etc,. The car just shakes, bumps and judders over them...
  11. Ford Fiesta Mk7 Forum - (2008-2017)
    Hi Guys, My girlfriend's Fiesta failed MOT on both lower ball joints. On her way home from MOT center she stop off and bought the ball joints from local shop. There are not the typical ball joints I'm used to. They don't have the typical setup, where it's held into the wishbone with 2 or 3...
  12. Suspension/Wheels/Brakes/Steering (Mk3 Mondeo)
    It's a Mk3 estate done 212K and it knocks constantly at the rear. Vague and skips slightly sideways when cornering and hit a dip or sunken manhole cover/drain. From what I've read it sounds like the mounting bushes. Some sellers state same bushes for all Mk3s others state different for the...
  13. Wheels In Motion
    Guys... i have a 2005 Fiesta TDCI manual that has a steering wheel wobble at 70mph. I have had both wheels straightened and balanced. Tracking checked and adjusted. Both front springs replaced. Both driveshafts replaced. Wheel bearings replaced. But it still wobbles and pulls to the left...
  14. Mechanical (Focus Mk3)
    I have recently installed a set of H&R 35mm Progressive Lowering Springs on my MK3 Focus and my front suspension has developed a knocking or 'clunking' noise, mainly coming from the driver side strut. Has anybody else had this problem and could anyone help with solving it?

  16. Mondeo Mk4 General Discussion
    Yo Fordy's, I'm new to the forum, so forgive me if this post (or similar post) has been answered numerous amounts of times. I'm picking up my Mondeo on Thursday, and straight away, have left myself £1,000 to get the car lowered up to 100mm, maybe more depending on wheels (yet to be decided)...

  20. Mondeo Mk4 General Discussion
    Hi all, I'm thinking of buying a second hand Mondeo - probably a Mk4. Previously I had a Mk4 Ghia and I liked its soft ride. My question is this - there are a lot of Zetecs around (but not many Ghias!), are Zetecs equipped with stiffer suspension, or is it just a trim level? I once had a Mk3...
