Whats This Part Called---It Rattles/knocks

09 September 2011 - 04:02 PM

I've had a knocking/rattle from the rear offside.
I thought it was something to do with the Towbar/lighting i fitted...After striping the boot out about 3 times and damaging the shock absorber i think i've now located the source ..But i'm a car numpty so not sure what its called

thanks nyck

Under Engine Cover--Are They All The Same 05-08

26 April 2011 - 11:02 AM

It's not urgent but i could do with replacing the Under engine cover for my 57 1.8 TDCi.
I didn't know if the petrol/diesels covers are the same or even the C-max?? 2005-2008 or later model

Also I'm not sure what it's call the plastic shield that between the lower engine cover and the front bumper..it clips into the front bumper and bolts to the mud guards

thanks nyck

Very Loud Banging From Gearbox --1.8 Tdci 57/07

03 April 2011 - 11:57 PM

Around a month or 2 I had a very slight knocking sound in the gearbox when the engine was in idle but would go when the clutch was press in.From what read it could been the Clutch release bearing or input thrust bearing.But was fine driving and no problem with the gears.About a week ago car seemed quite shaky and the noise was getting a bit worse with the clutch in or out this time.Friday came and it sounds like a machine gun in the gearbox area.
I drove it to a garage who my dad knows and he suspect the Dual mass Flywheel (DMF) is breaking up as the noise goes when revving the engine but starts the knocking noise as the revs drop back below 2k revs.Again ok when driving and the gears select ok.

As advised i didnt drive it home again and it's booked in for Wednesday .He said if its the flywheel would i want a DMF again or convert it to Solid Flywheel.I not sure what to do
Also the cost is a factor as they done a Vauxhall corsa a month ago and that was around £600


Do I Need A Towbar Bypass Relay 2007 Focus??

26 February 2011 - 10:43 PM

I'm not quite sure if a need a bypass relay or not ( Focus 57/2007)

If i do need one is it the case,just the warning light will come on??
I only use the trailer 5/6 times for the odd tip run ,so i could live with a warning light for 30 minutes or could it do permanent damage if i dont use one

thanks nyck
