Yes I think its the alarm siren, so that theives cannot simply cut or disconnect the horn to effectivly disable the alarm.

In Topic: piston for duratek 1.6 streetka

Have you had the cylinder head off to have a look? I'm suprised that Fords cannot supply a seperate piston, you may have been unlucky and had a bad partsman serve you, try another main dealer. Havn't had new spark plugs fitted recently have you? Some spark plugs are slightly too long and raise the compression and damage pistons or even contact the piston.

They usally leak around the pipe union that comes out of the power steering pump. Need to get under the car really and have a look for wet patches...

Can't see it being related to the suspension arm bush problem but...

I would'nt worry too much about the PAS (power assisted steering) fluid level fluctuating a little bit, but if the level drops very low (below min), then I would check for leaks. Check the high pressure pipe that comes out of the PAS pump for signs of damp.

If the PAS fluid dropped low enough and air got in the system, you could get vibrations when turning lock to lock? He says vibrations through the steering wheel, doesn't say if this is on drive or not?
