im having a problem with my mondeo 2.0 tdci.
seem to have a knock coming from around the n/s of the car whenever i
accelerate and deaccelerate, but its not a very harsh knock as it doesnt
vibrate the car or go through the steering, its just more of a noise
i have managed to drive the car with very
smooth accelerating and gear changing to avoid the problem, but you can
always make it happen if you quickly press the accelerater or quickly
lift your foot off the pedal.
i jacked the car up
today and took the wheel off and i can make it happen by rotating the
wheel hub clockwise and counter clockwise - back and forth..
the sound seems to be coming from the inner side of the drive shaft or the gearbox?
read a few forums who suggest it may be the inner driveshaft bearing
(UV i think?) or the diffrencial has gone and i'll need it rebuilt or a
new box put in...
any advise on what this is? and if its going to get worse?
many thanks :)
