One of the common faults on the mondeo is the lower arm bushes,which causes different sorts of problems,one of the problems i have found is when the bushes are going/gone under acceleration the steering wheel vibrates and also when turning corners.Check the lower arm bushes first.
Cheers Blokie :L

well its difficult if you have no clue what you are looking at, even if you have a manual its still difficult for some, and besides which you will need a ramp especially in this weather, theres no point in jacking it up and working on the floor...

just got another quote £120 for both sides supplied and fitted, so if this is the problem i'l get it done for the £120 price, although it will not be ford parts, but if it see's me through for a while and its safe that will do me

If it is the lower arms do them yourself m8.

Drivers side is a doddle

Passenger side as we know is the problem,but drop the subframe down on the passenger side a little or raise the box so as to get the bolt the right way up.

Buy them yourself for about £50 non genuine and a couple of you hrs in labour.

Big saving m8 still on £120.

Just my ten bobs worth

Cheers
