  1. going to take a look tomorrow: As for the brakes : looks like im missing bolt HB1, haven;t verified with a visual yet, but i don't recal it being there
  2. took the gear gaiter off and looks like the spring 7k205 isn't sitting properly on a clip
  3. Thanks Will take a closer look at the brakes, The gear change feels fine .
  4. Update with a Quick video of the Gear Stick
  5. Not sure what you mean by shoe carrier? I'll get some photos up tonight.
  6. Disks all round,
  7. Thank you. i Bought Privately, Could be the A/c i guess as it was working when i test drove it, but when i went to blast it last week, i was getting very littel from it, so could be slipping i guess? i changed the rear hubs as soon as i got it, only done 60k, bu they were shot to pieces and the noise was unbearable. only when i got rid of that noise, did i start noticing the other noises... i did get it on the cheap, but serves a purpose as my other car had failed its MOT and needed alot of work. i'll take the brakes apart again tomorrow and check it all looks ok, the bolts were in last time i checked...last lets hope they are still there ....
  8. Hi guys, got a few issues with my 1.8 Petrol 2004 focus C-Max. the rear brake carrier is loose, and rattles, im pretty sure that the pad are the correct ones, with a little bunny ear spring on one, and fitted correctly, but when the hand brake is off, the carrier has a good 5-10 mm of movement, so rattles along the road. im assuming that the carrier isn't missing any parts and the hand brake cable can be adjusted on one side to compensate? The Gear selection is loose, i.e when you find and get into gear it goes into gear nicely and the car drives fine, but when you have selected 3rd as an example, you can move the stick left and right to the extremes with no affect on the gear box, is this a normal ford trait or what is the cause of this problem?? Lastly, there is a rattle coming from the front right which sounds like a worn pully bearing or similar, havn't had a chance to get the front splash shield off to take a proper look down there, but what pullies are down there if any that would rattle away when rev'd in gear or out of gear. Thanks slack
