Hi this is my first time on here, and i have some question to you all for my fusion 1.4 tdci 04 plate.

1/ I'm having problems with the front driver seat, it's make a slight clicking noise when
I turn left, I have greased and oil frame but it seams to be coming from inside the upper
part of the seat, which i can not get into, do i go to the dealers or a seat specials or
do any of you know of a problem on these seats!!

2/there is a clicking noise coming from under the dash when i start the car from cold.
I thought it was the fan but i turned this off, then i thought it was the radio cd i
turned this off, I'm thinking it might be some sort of relay clicking, can you shed some
light on this please.

3/ the heater plugs glow light on the dash does not go ON at all when i start the car!!
on my last car a vw it was showing for a few seconds and going out.

Sorry for all of these question, please read and reply.

It has to be really cold for the glow plug light to come on !!

Hope that helps :)

Thats 1 question down and 2 to go.
It look like the glow plug light does not light until it goes under -1

the noise inside the dash, i will try and record.

an update on the seat i have re cleaned the old white grease i put on,
and heat gun the plastic on the grey side case by the elevation handle
in case it was the plastic to try and get it back to its original shape.

will keep you updated on progress.

Just an update.
the noise clicking is comeing from the radio it sounds like the cd turning !!

I have just bought a secondhand seat to try to see if the noise has gone.
will keep you informed on that.

The clutch is very light and bites right at the top is this normal!!!

UPDATE THE CLICKING NOISE WAS THE SEAT FRAME, I HAVE PUT IN THE SECONDHAND SEAT AND NO NOISE AT ALL.
I HAVE CONTACTED THE SEAT SPECIALS TO CHANGE THE ORIGINAL SEAT COVER OVER FOR NEXT WEEK.
THE NOISE IS COMEING FROM THE RADIO, I WILL BE BUYING A SECONDHAND RADIO WITH A CODE WHEN I INSTALL
THE PARRAT HANDS FREE KIT.
