Suspension Knocking / Rattle?

18 June 2013 - 12:53 PM

HI all.

 

Car has developed a rattle / knock from the rear left when going over uneven ground or speed humps.

I have checked the shocker and it seems sound as there is no bounce, the anti roll link bar appears to be intact and it is definitely not the exhaust knocking.

Any ideas guys and girls?

 

Thanks in advance.


Wheels Refurbed And Looking Good

12 March 2013 - 10:28 AM

Hi all.

 

Just had my wheels sandblasted and powdercoated and added some chrome on black gel overlays to the center caps, well happy with the results.

Thought I'd post a photo of her all washed and waxed and looking good.

Locking Wheels Nuts - Which Size?

11 March 2013 - 01:29 PM

Hi all.

 

Had my alloys completely re-furbed [sandblasted and powdercoated] and they look great.

Now need to buy a new set of locking wheel nuts to secure them as the key to the previous set broke when removing the wheels.

The wheels are the original ford 5 spoke Zetec S alloys.

Want to be sure of the correct thread size etc before I go ordering the wrong ones off ebay.

Also does anyone know the best make to go for?

I phoned a local ford stealer who could not give me any tech info, and just told me he had one set that would fit on the shelf and that they were £58 !!!!

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

 

Regards

Zetec S Wheel Wheel Refurb

25 February 2013 - 02:17 PM

Hi all.

Does anyone know where I can get some ford overlay stickers for my wheel centre caps?
I have a mk3 mondeo zetec s with the 18inch 5 spoke alloys.
Getting the alloys re-furbed and the centre caps are a bit scruffy.
The guy who is doing the rims said if I can get some ford stickers for the centre caps he will spray them up for me.
Have looked on eBay but they are all to small other than some domed gel badges that were a bit on the expensive side at 79.
Any ideas / advice would be much appreciated.
Regards
Simon
