My Focus Zetec S Eps In The Snow !! Help

5 posts in this topic

Hello,

I brought my focus Zetec s about a week ago and have been out in the snow the past few days and my eps or something is making a horrible crunching sound, have took it back to ford and they say its normal !! Anyone else have the same problem ??

You mean if you acelerate hard with ESP on it makes a crunching sound, or when you are breaking hard??

It is normal when breaking as this is the abs stopping the wheels from locking up. If it doesn't make the noise when the ESP is turned off then you know it's doing its job right

My Fiesta Zetec S does the same thing in the snow. Agreed it sounds like something has broken but as the guys above say, it's fine - just the car's safety features doing their job! :)
