      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Diff Bearing Gone?

    Hi Guys, My focus has developed a very loud whining noise. It starts at 15 or 20 mph and the volume increases with road speed (not revs). It doesn't seem to change with steering input. I checked the wheel bearings and they feel reasonably smooth and have no play in them. I also removed the right-hand drive shaft and checked the bearing that sits half way down it, it feels nice and smooth too. So I went on to check the diff bearings. I can feel a bit of play where the left-hand drive shaft enters the diff - is this normal, or is my bearing knackered? If it is knackered how hard is it to replace? Can it be done in-situ or will I have to remove the gearbox? Also, how do I remove the left-hand drive shaft from the diff? The right hand side came straght out, but the left hand one won't budge. Thanks.
