2008 Sport Ka 1.6 Knocking Sound

18 October 2014 - 06:55 PM

Hiya to all on the forum


My partner has a 2008 sport ka 1.6, we have changed the lower arms both sides and track rod ends and top mount rubber doughnuts and has been geo tracked we put back all together nicely and now when when coming of the drive down the curb there is a knock noise that you can feel by the brake pedal and when turning left and right when under pressure. I checked all nuts and bolts are secure and they are and none are loose.


any help with this all please welcome

Ford Sport Ka 2008 Pipe Below Accumulator Leaking

13 August 2014 - 11:48 AM

Hiya All


Just a quick one, my partners sport ka 2008 has a air con leak in it. found this the other day as green liquid was coming out. The leak is on the pipe that leaves the accumulator then goes to the condesor or motor. the leak was caused by the curved bracket holding the pipe in place this has now made a very small pin hole in pipe. I rang ford and they said it will cost £214 for the pipe . at the moment i have a piece a hose pipe around it with a jubilee clip so far so good. I dnt really wont to regas it as it may leak again as this is a temp fix.  


Would it be possible to weld it closed the hole or just replace it with a second hand pipe and is it specific to what type of ka like couild i put 1.2 ltr pipe on this 1.6.


any help would do please


thanks all
