Hi All

A weird one this and hopefully nothing ?.

For whatever reason I've got very sensitive hearing at the moment which does'nt help the situation, but basically in the last 2 weeks or so I've noticed a lot of cabin/road noise a drone if you like, which seems to be more audible when on coarse surfaces, when I'm driving on nice tarmac I can't hear anything, and the drone seems to come from the front passenger side.

I'm thinking noisey rubber on crap road surface, possibly a wearing bearing or shock ?. It also seem to be more evident when driving slowly ?.

The other question; do other Fusion drivers have a very annoying rattly drivers window (top right corner ?), and wots the best method of stoping it, what with the drone & the rattle I don't need to put the car stereo on, it's like most of the lastest techno stuff anyway :rolleyes: :D

most likely youre tyre pressure is a bit low it can also be down to the tyre road noise from tyres isnt unusual the fact its only on coarse road surfaces says that its just the tyre not bearings with bearings it would get worse and increase with speed check youre tyre pressures and remember if you do it after youve drove the car what ever youre book says is the correct pressure add 1.5 on so if they are meant to be say 30 inflate to 31.5

Mine has no drone or window rattle but a high squeak sound from around passanger front / rear. I know its nothing major bit it does do your head in a little im so focussed on it i hear it with the radio on. I like my fusion its a bit rough round the edges and new a + model cost 16'995 id be pissed off if i paid that. Got mine for 4500 pounds three yrs old with 4500 mles on the clock. It was like new only 1150 miles ayear.So i live with the rattle and genral cabin noise.
