Hi

I get knocking sometimes when reversing and when the steering is on right or left lock.

When stationary if i wobble the steering wheel engine on or off i get a loud knocking noise.

Would this point to the steering rack or track control arms etc.

I have coverd 10100 miles

Hi, my Mrs Mk7 went into the dealers on Tuesday - the service manager said that Ford had issued a TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) out about this issue and although I wasn't there when the Mrs picked the car up a few hours later she did say that the dealer told her they greased something.

Anyway, clunking noise all gone. For now, anyway.

Hello Folk's

Mine went in for the same noise nearly a month ago but don't know if they greased my part's :lol: , important thing is the noise was gone and finger's crossed hasn't returned, the dealer put it down to a torque sensor on the column. When did the bulletin about the dealer fix with the grease come out, sensor thing may have been bullshit or coincidence
