ford fiesta odd noise

25 February 2009 - 04:53 PM

hi everyone

I have a ford fiesta mk4 1999 and when I have been driving for about 50 seconds i usually move away from a junction, this is done in first gear and when i raise the clutch pedal i get a strange noise (sounds like a whirling noise ) i depress the clutch and it goes it tends to only do this in cold weather though, also for the first time last week it did the exact same thing when i changed down to 3rd gear and began lifting the clutch pedal, this happened on a motorway sliproad (going downhill) as soon as i push the pedal back in it goes.
im also not sure if the noise if coming from the front of the car or all around :lol:

it only does this for about 20 mins of driving and then its fine....... but could it be cold weather related as i cannot remember it happening in the summer when its warm ;)

out of interest could it possibly be a buildup of brake dust on the brake drums causing some friction?
or could it be something else?

Bee sting aerials

01 January 2009 - 08:59 AM

Hi everyone i have tried to fit two different bee sting aerials to my ford fiesta MK4 1999
but with no luck as the thread that is already on the car is a 10mm thread and the thread hole on both the aerials are 8mm and 6mm

my question is : is it possible to remove the existing thread by simply unscrewing it (even though it is jammed in there)
and is there a bee sting aerial with a 10mm fitting

thanks hope you can help

as this is my first post thanks for having this great forum

happy new year
