Front Wheel Nuts On Titanium 16" Alloy Wheels

30 July 2011 - 01:16 PM

Hi All,

When cleaning my car this morning I noticed that all 3 standard wheel nut heads on both front drivers and passenger sides have a slight play in them of about 1mm (they make a rattle noise when you rub them). I double checked that the nuts were on tight - which they are, however there is still a little play in the front wheel nuts. the rear standard nuts have no play.

I wondered if anyone else with Titanium 16" wheels has experienced this?

Kind Regards,


Loud Clicking Noise When Turning Wheel In The Same Direction As The Indicator Is Set

20 April 2011 - 07:02 AM

Hi All,

My fiesta was in the dealership yesterday as I have an on going saga with a grinding noise when turning right at low speeds. They replaced the steering column yesterday in the latest attempt to resolve the issue.

However following this work I am convinced there is now a load harsh 'click' noise when turning my wheel when indicating 'as though the switch is slightly out of position however it could be my imagination.

Could anyone else please confirm whether the click when turning in 'harsh' on your car? Any help would be greatly appreciated :-)


Creak From Steering When Applying Full Right Lock

20 March 2011 - 12:30 PM

Hi all,

I have a 7 months old Fiesta Titanium. When I place the steering on full lock as driving slowly (e.g. turning a corner in a car park) a 'creaking' type of sound comes from the steering (sounds like the motors). However this does not occur when turning left.

I reported this to my local dealer who said they found a known fault, however after the 'fix' the noise remains.

I am taking it back in tomorrow but wondered if anyone else has experienced this?
