Clutch Issue? New Crank Seal.

29 August 2013 - 07:34 AM



Looking for someone mechanical here who knows the 1.6tdci engine.


Just had the crank seal replaced under warranty they identified a leak during the service.


However after reading some information online I just wanted to check something.


The Clutch has been really very heavy lately, so much so that after returning the 1.4 tdci courtesy car I noticed instantly.


Is it possible this could be connected?


The car has only done 32k miles.




Wheel Alignment And Stepping Tyres.

18 July 2013 - 10:35 AM

Hi All,


Has anyone else experienced "stepping" on their tyres, this is when the edge sort of jumps a small amount between sections so looks like -=-=-=-=- and if you rub your hand over it it feels like step up, step down.


The reason I ask is because I have this problem and as is usual with Ford Motor Company they are blaming it on everything except the manufacturing of the car.


I have paid the dealer for 4 wheel alignment, the front was only out by a tiny (0.1mm) but the back left camber is 1.2 degrees, however apparently this can not be adjusted, so my question which they cannot seem to answer is if it is not adjustable how have I ended up with a 1.2 degree camber on 1 wheel when the other is 0.


Has anyone got any idea or experience with this, I do not want to go and buy new tyres only to find the same stepping happens to them.



Aftermarket Alloys With Oem Centre Caps/ St Alloys.

27 May 2013 - 09:09 PM

Hi All,

Does anyone know if Ford centre caps can be fitted to aftermarket alloys, I appreciate there is many wheels but I was not sure if anyone knew of anything specific that they would fit.

Also does anyone know if the new st alloys would fit on the pre facelift titanium without modification (currently 16s).

Hi all,

Does anyone here have the new standard armrest, is it a simple unit or is it the jumbo box style with plentiful storage?
