Daverip2003 replied to Daverip2003's topic in Ford Mondeo / Vignale ClubThanks I have Friday afternoon off so I'll check both these out. Been reading up on CV joint problems and it does sound quite likely. Is there an easy way to diagnose this without dismantling the brakes etc? I didn't see any signs of grease around the boot when I last looked. I've heard a cv on a front wheel drive is a pain to change?
Daverip2003 started following 2006 Mondeo Front Wheel 'popping' Noise On Full Lock Reverse?
Daverip2003 posted a topic in Ford Mondeo / Vignale ClubI've had to resort to the wisdom of other mondeo owners to help me with this issue. For a while now, I've been experiencing a concerning noise from my front passenger side wheel when reversing on full lock. It doesn't happen every time but it is often and I can only describe it as a 'pop' as if something is not moving as it should then suddenly catches up with a jump. First I checked the pressure and wheel nut tightness, all fine. Last night I jacked the whole front end up and removed both wheels. Everything seemed to move as it should, nothing seemed looser than it should be and bar a slight bit of play when spinning the hubs, nothing rattled etc. I couldn't see or hear anything sinister going on at all. I'm not a mechanic but I am an engineer so I expected to find maybe a knackered bearing or ball joint. If anyone could help with some ideas or even if they have come across this before, I'll be a very happy bunny. Don't want to put my car in for diagnostics to find it was an easy fix :) Thanks in advance Dave
