      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.

    Focus 1.6 Flight
  1. (mk1 Ford Focus 1.6 manual petrol) When I'm reversing (only when pressing the 'gas') I can hear a metallic 'rolling/bearings'? sound of noise. Lift off, no noise. Press the pedal and its there again. Cold start- from turnover for the first 5secs? The sound is also present- just briefly though. I've also noticed recently that selecting 1st and reverse at standstill can occasionally be difficult. Clutch/clutch release bearing are recently replaced. What could it be?
  2. This is pronounced/easily noticeable when the car is cold for circa the first 15mins. Its a sort of metal(?) short screech and normally happens when I'm lifting the clutch to set off in 1st gear. It may happen when the car is fully warmed up however I can't hear it. In addition, when sat at idle if I dip the clutch- the engine changes note (becomes slightly quieter). In addition (I think this is a seperate issue?): On full lock to lock whilst reversing there is a groan/moan (from the powersteering pump?). Checked the level- its full/no leaking/drop. The moan sometimes continues even when I’ve straightened the wheel and carry on backwards (i.e. reversing onto my drive). The moan only occurs when reversing- not full lock in 1st gear. What could it be?
  3. Is that normal/right for a Focus (mk1/2004)?????
