  • Ford Model: Mk7 Fiesta Style

Posted 18 May 2010 - 12:25 PM

Hey FOC, I'm probably your youngest member on here (turned 18 in March) and I am a proud owner of a Mk7 Fiesta Style and have got about 8,000 on the clock.

I comfortably drive quite fast over the tops everyday to get to work, but when I get to work it squeaks when I turn to the right.

I think it only happens when there is no throttle applied.

Also after finishing work and I come to go home, the squeaking problem doesn't reappear until I've driven a fair way home.

Can anyone please give me any clues as to what this might be?

Thanks!

What sort of "quite fast" speed figures are we talking here?

Can you identify where this "squeeking" is coming from inside/ outside the car?

Well when I say "quite fast" I mean around 90+ at periods of about 5-7 minutes.

From what I can gather the squeak is coming from the front right wheel.

I don't really know much about the mechanical side of cars, but I'm wondering if it is something to do with the power steering?

I think it's still in warranty...is it 1 year or 3 years?

It was 1 in April so I bet there is only a 1 year warranty...sods law >.>

If you dont drive too much between the hours of 11pm-5am then try a company called I-kube - they're worth a ring!

Well mate I was wrong about the squeaking, my pads are about 40% worn so didn't need to change them... was talkin to my dad about it he works for RAC been a mechanic for about 17 years he said all it needed was pads out clean them up with break cleaner stick some copper grease on the top and bottom of the pad but not the bit that comes into contact with the disk, then some on the back and then on the "anti squeal pads" that don't fecking work haha, so far my problem is solved.

Hope this makes sense mate.

If your not to sure about what to do ask a friend that does garage will probably charge you stupid amounts to do it
