Hello Forum..  hope all well, ..

 

have a some concern  about my Fiesta.

 

Fiesta late 2009 (59) Zetec Auto 1.4 - Rattles

A strange rattle noise has developed on the passenger side at the front engine bay area / front wheel area.

 

Normal driving is fine, but when driven over pot hole/ bump in road something rattles. It started off infrequent but is now more frequent.

Still happens when steering around a corner, whether driving fast or slow. Is now quite loud and can be heard even louder with the window wound down.

 

I guessed it was a broken spring, but all looks fine.

 

Any one else had the same problem?

 

There is a link to  hearing the audio  recorded with my phone :   AUDIO  http://www.mykenwood.co.uk/audio.mp3

 

And  have attached a phone recordings of the noise in the hope someone can advise what it is?

 

Please help.

 

Alex.

check the anti roll bar drop links....find them each end of the roll bar.
with wheels on the ground, give the links a shake by hand, hopefully feel excess movement, compare it to the good side...sometimes the only way to be sure, is disconnect them and give it a little drive [preferably not going 60mph round corners} see if noise has gone....be aware though, most of the time can be a bugger to remove, sometimes ruin them in the process.
failing that, check for movement in shock absorber top mount, and brake caliper isnt loose or rattling on slide pins.
