Fiesta 1.4 2009 - Rattle / Clanking Noise At Front

03 March 2013 - 03:15 PM

Hello Forum..  hope all well, ..


have a some concern  about my Fiesta.


Fiesta late 2009 (59) Zetec Auto 1.4 - Rattles

A strange rattle noise has developed on the passenger side at the front engine bay area / front wheel area.


Normal driving is fine, but when driven over pot hole/ bump in road something rattles. It started off infrequent but is now more frequent.

Still happens when steering around a corner, whether driving fast or slow. Is now quite loud and can be heard even louder with the window wound down.


I guessed it was a broken spring, but all looks fine.


Any one else had the same problem?


There is a link to  hearing the audio  recorded with my phone :   AUDIO  http://www.mykenwood.co.uk/audio.mp3


And  have attached a phone recordings of the noise in the hope someone can advise what it is?


Please help.
