Hey guys, bit of a long shot this, but have a really annoying rattle when going over bumps in the car, coming from the front. Had wheels off, checked brakes/pads etc, all fine. Had a bang around with a rubber mallet, thought maybe something to do with front bumper as I pulled out a few large stones and a dead bird (skeleton) must have been there a while lol. Got these out from the large grill under the ref plate. Took car out, confident I'd nailed it, and boom, still there. So jacked it up again, and found my inner wheel arches are really loose and flopping about, mainly the back end/behind the wheel towards the cockpit if you like. Looked on eBay and there are many different types of these clips, so which ones do I need ??? Notice I have at least one missing on either side, maybe more on a closer inspection. Any help would be appreciated. Main ones I've seen state '7mm' hole but want to get the right ones.

I'll do a microcat check for you later.
From Ford you'll probably be looking at a couple of quid a pack of four.

Darn it!!!

Microcat won't open for me anymore as it's come up as outdated.

Hopefully I can find a newer version to download or else I've lost an excellent tool. Bugger.

No worries mate, its not that urgent. Wait and see how these from eBay work out. Hope it sorts the rattle, its driving my bananas lol. Both in Dr arches are very loose though. So I think it will be them causing the noise.

No mate,,,, way to small, don't buy them. I took a gamble and it didn't pay off lol. More suited to the ones under the bonnet that hold the top of your bumper to the slant panel.
