      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. Firstly sorry for the straight in and needing help..I know how regular members get cheesed off with that so apologies..but given the girlies refusal to give up on her focus I suspect she will keep it longer so reggular use of the forum is to be expected so straight in :( clunking from the rear led us to take the car into a garage today for a free exhaust check..makes the similar clunk of a loose exhaust..they took it out for a test drive after checking and finding no probs with the exhaust. Came back and said the rear shocks were failing and the noise was the springs over compensating and clunking...the car is a 2004 hatchback 1.8 tdci and has 115,000 miles on it and they are the original shocks second problem..the handbrake always sticks to the point that she has more often than not, parks it in gear than use the handbrake..a small amount of gt85 on the pivot on the hub seems to release it but long term i'd rather the handbrake didn't stick I'm a very basic but capable diyer and basic car things type of person any idea's or help on my first post would be greatly appreciated thanks Ps re- the rear shocks..I've found a few posts but I guess I'm seeking reassurance really...did anyone torque the bolts back up or just tighten? first time really so competent just not well informed
