  1. Had the belt changed about 2 months ago. Had a mechanic listen to the noise today, wasn't sure what it was but mentioned the release bearing... Will check this out! :)
  2. :( How long would the current one last? Wouldn't damage anything else being like this would it?
  3. I did think the drive belt at first but that's fine. The noise has got worse, it only used to do it on hills but now its everytime I move off. Tonight, I noticed a slight vibration on the clutch pedal when going from halfway to fully down plus if I move my gearstick left or right when in neutral i can feel a vibration through my hand :( Think i need a new clutch?
  4. Focus 1.8 TDCi 2009 36k Miles When I release the clutch in 1st gear to set off I get a really strange squeal noise coming from god knows where, sometimes its longer, sometimes its a quiet squeal. Noticed its a lot louder when doing a hill start. All the other gears are fine Only other problem I have with the gears is that there really stiff on cold mornings, but think that's a cold/warm gearbox oil issue... If it helps... This has only started since I hit a pothole, it was a large one which damaged my wheel/tyre but this might not be anything to do with it. Any help would be great! Thanks...
  5. Just purchased a 55 plate focus (mk2) with 105k miles & would like to know if theres a fix for this... When I let go of the clutch, its comes up but not right up, I can put my foot under the pedal and lift it a couple inches and then it drops back down a couple inches when i remove my foot. Would the ford springkit sort this out? or would i need a new clutch? Any help would be great!
  6. I'm not sure which one to go for! Thinking MPG alone. 2010 1.6 TDi Zetec S (Old shape) Urban: 50.4mpg 2011 1.6 Zetec Petrol (New shape) Urban: 35.3mpg I do town miles, prob go on the motorway once a week, but I'm a fast driver (rarely do 30-40) I have a 2009 1.8 TDi Titanium now... Urban is 42.0mpg but I get 29.9mpg so I know what it says isn't correct anyway Any help would be great! People who have the above? Tell us how you drive and what mpg it states? Thanks ;)
  7. "Catch" is spot on. Mine has 29.8Mpg - 352 Miles in full tank. ;)
  8. It'll be 'black carpet dye' ;) Use some 'thinners' to get it off...
  9. Instructions don't work for me. When on position II, the seat belt symbol isn't there so i cant wait for it to go off before i start the instructions. 2009 Model, any ideas?
  10. Will be genuine. I work in the motor trade... Seen quite a few of 10+ year old cars with less than 15k miles & they do drive great (strange to drive because you know its 10 years old but no rattles an perfect clutch etc) :) Lowest Ive seen is a V reg Honda with 2800 miles on it... Bodywork wasn't the best though
  11. Bump! Window rattle booked in with Ford tomorrow under 30 day warranty... I'll wait for the phone call saying "There's no rattle"
  12. That could be good! Means it can be sorted :) Gonna get some of this! Looked up on it, sounds good. Think it would happen all the time if it was this?
  13. Hi, New here... Picked up my 3DR 2009 Focus Titanium 1.8 TDCi (25k Miles), 2 weeks ago. Just have a few questions. Tonight, I noticed a shudder when I was accelerating in 2nd & 3rd gear so stopped and revved and there is a shudder. Engine was started 5 minutes earlier so maybe because its cold? Not noticed this in the 2 weeks I've had it (500 miles) Next, Is the windows!! Think its because of the 3dr (Bigger doors/windows), but my windows rattle once opened on every bump! Does anybody's 3dr do this? Think that's it for now! Love the car, gone from a 2011 Polo 3 cylinder to this tank Thanks!!
