Note: If the noise was/is still there after they changed the injectors(so called fixed the problem) via the warrenty then your warrenty still stands as the problem hasnt been fix whilst the problem was first reported whilst the warrenty was still valid, take it back and tell them to sort it and mention trading standards, DONT be fobbed off, go to another ford dealer and get there opinion as to the noise

I had the exact same symptoms with mine, not guaranteed to be the same thing but worth a shot. My local garage changed the pulley on the alternator system and replaced the belt. Good as gold ever since, the knock has gone, as has the occasional squeek and the battery light problem has not returned (been a year now since this work was completed). I would agree with the warranty comment above in that the problem has not been resolved so the original call still stands.

Good luck, hope you get it sorted.

Do you still have the same problem? Does having the A/C on or off make any difference? as I believe they are run off the same belt & tensioner?
