i would have a free wheel alignment check done & ask them to check the lower suspension arms whilst there as they wear &

can cause the symptons you talking about. for how much they cost i would replace both lower suspension arms & you will feel a hell of a diffrence. they cost about £30.00 each so worth it m8 if you can do them yourself.as said by mick85 its worth getting the steering rack looked at or atleast change the tie rod end as they maybe worn but do anywork like tie rods and lower suspension befor you pay out for wheel alignment. my local garage diagnose a some parts on my car needed replacing so tracked as best they could for me then i done the work & they redone the tracking for me for nothing the following week.

as btmaldon said its on the rear of the engine. i can usually lie under the car from the front offside tyre & get my hand on the filter & undo it but if it's hard to undo put it on ramps of axel stands and use a strap of chain type remover but when refitting use a little oil on the 

new filter rubber seal & do it up by hand and dont use a tool or use the tool to only nip it up.




#307139 Streetka Lower Arm

it takes about 2 hours road site if you take your time

the part can be got from a local parts supplier

 

http://www.gsfcarparts.com/

 

you will need a good set of sockets and spanners and a balljoint splitter or use a crow bar

 

the part is about £25.00 for a aftermarket part or frauds £95.00

 

look here

 

 

the parts are similar to all models of cars and you do not need to remove the front hub or brake caliper or brake disk  but removing the brake caliper does help

the fuel filter is just infront the rear nearside wheel (passengers side)

you will need pair of clamps to clamp the fuel lines eitherside of the filter  then squeeze the tabs on the

fuel line that connects onto the filter & pull each end off then unto the clamp that holds to filter to the body of the car & slide out

then fit the new filter put on the pipes & make sure they are secure then remove clamps then start engine

you will find it will take a little time to start due to the filter having to fill up so just keep cranking until if fires up.

piccy of what it looks like here m8. the fiestas are the same as the ka.

#121725 Speaker Wiring

check the wiring inside the rubber boot between the door & car body
they usually break inside the rubber housing
just cut the rubber to reveal the wires
