Front left rattle.

6 posts in this topic

Hi fiesta people :D

I recently got a 53 plate fiesta finesse as my first car 3 weeks ago, it broke on me the other day and i had to take it to a ford garage for a test, My engine light came on loss of power and the engine was shaking it turned out to be a crack in the coilpack and was fixed.

Just thought id give abit info on that incase its useful to anyone here.

So, i have noticed a slight rattle on the front left side of the car it seems like its something to do with the engine or something close to the engine on that side, It only happens when you accelerate not so bad in first second and third gear but more noticeble in third forth and fifth... It still isnt really bad but something you pick up on when driving. My friend has the same car from the same year so i tried that and his does the same but it isnt as noticeble as mine is. So i assume it isnt a very rare thing and hope someone here could say what exactly it is.

Thanks

Paul

ii think i have the same problem .. but it only happens on the motor way.

it sounds like my rattle comes from near the left side indicator.

i thought it can have been just a loose part or sumthin.

just turn up the radio and u cant hear :P

Possibly a worn engine or gearbox mount.

Could also be a worn top strut mount. They're more common, but with either of these being worn would more likely to be a knocking sound rather than a rattle.

Fiestas suffer badly for top strut mounts. As its around 6 years old it wouldn't surprise me if one or more of them are worn regardless of the low mileage.

Without hearing the noise personally am only guessing here. But they are the most likely cause
