Services Out Of Warranty

22 August 2012 - 07:48 AM

I'm coming up to my first major service, which thanks to Evans Halshaw, is out of warranty (They seem to have given the car 3 minor services over 2.5 years because it was serviced when i bought it 2nd hand).

As it's out of warranty, is there any reason why you should pay ford money for a major service, or would a normal service center be able to do exactly the same, and still give you a stamp for the logbook?

Squeal From Wheels After Braking?

13 June 2012 - 05:49 PM

I'm getting a loud high pitched squeal from (What i assume) is the wheels after i've braked heavily (to a stop) - any ideas what it could be?

It doesn't happen whilst im applying the brakes and goes away after about a minute or so on the motorway or after speeding up enough, but it's quite embarrassing in stop-start traffic!

Even if i move off very slowly it starts straight away... I can try record the noise if thats of help - is the pad getting stuck somewhere?
