      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 Zetec Climate 1.8
  1. Hi all, I am pretty new to car maintanence. I just bought a Ford Focus Zetec 1.8 (2007) 13000 miles. I found that there is noise when the clutch reaches the biting point and while the car is moving in low speed (below 10mph). The noise sounds like it is caused by fraction. I think the engine is fine because no noise is heard when the gear is in idle. I bought this car from a franchised dealer and didn't notice it during test driving. This car has been idle for 3 months but has just been serviced by the dealer 2 days before I took it. Could it be possibly that this is due to long time idle of the car? Will it dissapear when I drive the car for several days? Please give me your opinion. Regards, Ray
