In Topic: Focus 1.6 Tdci Econetic 2013 Banging

Yesterday, 11:22 PM

hi sorry if this is in the wrong place. im having a nightmare with my 2013 focus 1.6 tdci its now 11 months old has 11602 miles on clock. about 3 and half months a go it started to bang when changing gear and a nice grinding and intermittent bang on braking and accelerating. ive had a hard time getting dealerships to say yes there is a fault even with videos of it happening. its been to 2 different delerships had 6 mechanics inc master techs numourus phone calles to tech support and ford customer relations. they firt faulted it as 1/2/3 syncromesh being at fault then changed there minds and faulted the flywheel dual mass. which they say was solid and no movement in it once they managed to remove it a new one was fitted. no new friction plate pressure plate or release bearing csc. now ive just picked it up tonight and thought I could hear a bang very faint though no its just me used to hearing things. after 11 miles yep its back the banging and clatter and shaking on switching off all the common failure signs. no investigation work was carried out as to the root cause. does anyone know what might cause it to fail after 11 miles/less and what might be causeing the failures? tight shaft, bearings, syncro etc. any help is appreciated as im at my wits end now blood pressure through the roof at doctors tonight. and its not my driving I drive quite conservatively plus had no problems with my last focus. cheers steve

hi welcome to the forum.
I have heard of cases where the engine mounts bolt or bolts have shered off causing alot of movement in the engine,
Could possibly be the case here not 100% mate,
I've saw two cases of engine mount bolts on the 1.6TDCi so may be worth getting those checked over.
Most of all take care of yourself mate.

I would like to fit a Zetec S Diffuser to my current Focus Zetec.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

heres the Genuine ford fitting instructions for the rear diffuser:

They cost around 240pounds from ford thats 60 pounds more expensive than a full ST rear bumper,
I suggest searching ebay to purchase one from breakers,

Fitting then,
Purchase a tube of Tiger Seal its top quality body kit adhesive,
And a couple of rivets from B&Q or you can purchase them from ford
