Horrible Noise Coming From Drum Brake !!

19 October 2010 - 09:20 PM

last night noticed a very strange noise coming from my back left wheel, which kept getting louder ! sounded like something was majorly loose in the suspension or something ! but i removed my alloy and and turned my drum break round in the motion of the wheel and the noise is coming from inside it !! sounds more like a scraping noise, surely break pads havnt went with doing just under 20 000 miles ?

also noticed when my hand break is on full the drum brake still moves round ? cant understand this, i thot its ment to stop turing in order to lock the back wheels ?

any help would be much appreciated

Labour Charge Cost More Than Springs, What A Joke !

16 September 2010 - 11:34 PM

was in my local dealership today asking for pricing to get my car lower, as it still has 2 years on the warrenty i was advised to do it threw them. So i got a price for springs 322, which i thought was good for ford prices, but then the guy said its a 4 and a half hour job and said it would cost 370 labour, i near enough fainted ! So he said i HAVE to get it fitted with them, if i buy the springs and get it fitted somewhere else then my warrenty would be void ! so i just left it at that and spoke to 1 of the sales men and he said in vauxhall when people bought parts from them, as long as it got fitted at a VAT registered garage then all would be fine and warrenty would not be affected. Any idea if Ford are trying to rip me off or could i get them fitted else where ?
