What Is This Noise?

26 May 2014 - 03:12 PM



This noise has been bugging me for nearly 2 years now, over that time it's slowly been getting worse. Started at about 60,000mls and now at 90,000 miles and its worse. The noise is worse when the belt is under load, like with A/C on and heated windscreen the noise is much louder. I did take it to Ford but they just said its the "FEAD" belt, and recommended replacing the belt, however I don't know if it is the belt itself. Any ideas?


I've attached a sound clip of the noise



Rumbling Noise At 50Mph+

13 May 2014 - 08:17 PM



My car has over the past year and a half developed a rumbling noise when going at speed, its loudest at about 65mph, but starting to be audible at lower and higher speeds. It happens when going straight, or turning either way, and happens when i push the clutch in and let it roll, or in gear. Started at about 75,000mls, now at 90,000mls.


ANy ideas?


Strange Belt Noise

31 July 2013 - 02:59 PM



I have a strange aux belt noise and I dont know what it is. The belt isnt slipping at all because its not that sort of noise but the power steering does feel heavy(er). When higher load is put on the belt such as the quickclear windscreen or a/c the noise gets worse. I dont know if its the tensioner because the belt isnt slipping?


Is there any fix to this? Car's at 77,000miles

Input Shaft Bearing - How Long Left

01 July 2013 - 05:18 PM

Hello ok so its been a year since I found out my gearbox input shaft bearing has gone bad and making a noise. Ive done 17, 000 miles since then. Just wondering how long left you reckon I have before it goes completly and what happens when it does. The noise has got worse and it makes noise in 1st gear and 2nd gear but no others.

It makes noise in neutral but only just audible
