  1. Hi all, Help appreciated, car never came with owners book, had the car for 4 years and never got round to buying a new one. Can anyone tell me the specification for the power steering fluid? Needs topping up (no apparent leak, just a little low) Thanks in advance. Rob
  2. Hi, I know this was a long time ago but I have just fitted Puma Wheels to my 2007 Fiesta and the offset on these wheels is 34. They went on ok and do not rub on anything, however just wondered if I am going to cause any long term suspension issues.
  3. Hi, Thanks for the post, see you drive a Focus Sport, I used to have one of those!! Well I checked the offset etc on this website and as the tyres are the same width and profile I thought they would be ok. I was wondering as the tread pattern on the tyres are V type (like some the Goodyear Eagle F1 GSD3's) and if they have worn funny on the previous car I guess this could be making the noise. I read somewhere about spigot rings and I did not put one as the hub size was the same but some people say these should be used. Maybe they are just noisier tyres, I am such a novice hahaha
  4. Hi all, I am new to this forum and could do with some help. I currently have a 2007 fiesta tdci which had steel wheels on. I saw in a Facebook adds group some fan type alloys from a puma in decent nick and with 2 decent tyres on. 2 of tyres were shot and as they were up for 60 quid I decided to get them. Bought some alloy wheel nuts and replaced the 2 shot tyres and fitted them the car. The 2 existing tyres were directional and I ensured the rotation was correct. However, at about 30 there is quite a loud hum and you can feel it a little through the steering wheel. Do you think it may be because they have been rotated from the back of the old puma to the front of my fiesta. Df not a wheel bearing just wondering if I may have done something wrong?
