      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.

  1. Thanks. Am I right to assume once either of those starts to fail, it could go catastrophically at any time? It looks like I'm squeezing the family back into the Micra until I can get it looked at.
  2. Hi folks, I've just bought a Fiesta (1.4 petrol Titanium, 2010). I'm really pleased with it - lots of toys that I've not had on any of my previous cars, but it does have a disturbing sounding rattle/knocking when I press the clutch in. It's still under warranty from the dealer so I'll be taking it in to get this checked, but I've got to drive a couple of hundred miles tomorrow, and don't want to risk something failing on the way. I've recorded a video which shows the noise it makes (excuse the socks!). I'd really appreciate it if someone could have a listen, and let me know if they think it's something I should be worried about urgently, or if the car should be fine to drive until I can get it looked at. It doesn't sound too bad, but if there's a danger of a flywheel disintegrating or a bearing failing and wrecking the clutch, I'll take my little old Micra instead. Cheers, Alan
