Mountune Exhaust Knocking

26 October 2015 - 10:37 AM

I thought I should start a new thread about this because it was going a bit off topic in another thread. So I got the new Mountune cat-back exhaust fitted to my ST a few weeks ago and sometimes notice a knocking sound coming from the back of the car when the road surface has bumps or dips.


This must be the exhaust because I never heard this before it was fitted. I had it fitted at Stoneacre in York and took it back to them so they could check it, and they say it's all ok and just adjusted the heat shield a bit in case it was knocking on that.


From talking to others it looked like a good idea to upgrade the exhaust mounts, which is also something they recommended at Stoneacre. But Mountune disagree, and in emails they have said the exhaust is designed to be used with the stock rubber mounts, and if there is any knocking the exhaust is not fitted properly.


Has anyone else has this kind of problem, even with a different car or exhaust? I'd appreciate any advice :)

Photo Upload History

30 September 2015 - 04:42 PM

I'll just copy what I suggested in another thread:


It would be good if this forum let you see all the photos you've uploaded, whether in the gallery or not, so you can easily find them and re-post them when someone asks "can you post a photo of your headlights" etc.


I know it's probably easier to just upload everything to the gallery so you can easily post the photo again to other threads, but still this might be a nice feature if like me you often upload photos directly to a thread.

I'm thinking of going to this and just thought I'd post on here to see who else is interested :). Not been before but heard good things about it.

Should Door Hinges Be Greased?

21 August 2015 - 08:34 AM

I noticed after my car had its first service that the door hinges and bonnet latch were not greased. Then yesterday when I had the car at my local Ford dealer I brought this up, and they said they would be happy to do it for me but it's not part of the service. He also mentioned the usual problem of the grease leaving marks everywhere.


Do these things need to be re-greased or are they designed so well on modern cars that there's no need?

Funny Product Reviews

23 May 2015 - 03:50 PM

I just ordered some Autoglym Active Insect Remover from Amazon (definitely needed after an hour driving today), and one of the reviews really made me laugh so I though I'd share it:


http://www.amazon.co... insect remover


Title: Great on active insects!

I bought this to try and clean my motorcycle helmet visor. As advertised, it removed all the active insects with no problem at all!
However, by the time I get around to cleaning the insects off of my visor most of the insects are pretty motionless, so I would recommend purchasing some inactive insect remover to finish off the job.
I have attempted to assess the personality traits of insects collected from my visor to verify the claim that "Stubborn insect remains may require second application". I have so far been able to identify traits such as "twitchy", and "relaxed" but I have not yet found a way to accurately assess whether a given insect is "cooperative" or "stubborn".


Maybe we can find some more funny reviews, especially videos would be good :)
