      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. Hello all I have an 08 S-Max 38k that has been great and trouble free until two weeks back. All of a sudden I have a really annoying drone coming from the fans - seems to be inside the middle of the dashboard. The sound stops completely when the fans are turned off completely and although not very loud it is annoying enough to be causing me headaches on longer journeys. To have the air-con or fans on I need to manually adjust the fan speed to middle speed or below so that it quiet enough to not be a pain. I have had similar before on older cars when a piece of 'crud'/'fluff'/hair isn't filtered out and gets caught in the fans which I would get rid of by turning the fans to max then off, etc. to dislodge it. Is there anyway to remove the fan/blower covers (that alter the direction of airflow) to see if anything is afoot? Or could the main fan be on its way out? cheers all, Firgman
