  2. Knocking Noise From Rear Of Focus

    my mk i 1.8 focus has developed a knocking noixse from the rear suspension i think..any ideas? could it be the drop links as the noise is similar to the worn front drop links that i replaced a couple of years ago, and if it is how easy a job is it to replace them? thanks

  11. no liability on the garage unless you asked for cambelt to be checked ...i agree 100,000 or ten years is only a guide ...personally i wouldn't go over 70 k
  12. Worth Repairing?

    Sounds like this car has had a hard life at only 105,000 it shouldn't be giving all these what else is going to go wrong....the prices you quote for repairs are staggeringly high..either get rid or try an independent garage ..good luck

  15. Knocking Noise

    hi,its almost certainly the front drop links,you can't move or hear them by hand with the car off the ground but that would be my guess,its a common problem with focus....simple to do and about £15 the pair
