Quick question, will there be any ECU programming be needed if i was to swap out my speedo for a replacement? im thinking of getting the white dial version with the red lcd like the one in the 07/57 plate zetec models...

Cracked Spring?

13 September 2013 - 11:11 AM

Hi there,


i've been noticing a "click", or clacking type of sound for a few months now, happens mainly when taking off, or reversing, mainly when the car starts off from standstill.


ive been diagnosing it as possible droplinks, driveshafts or wishbones. the links and shafts were changed and no difference. one of my ball joints were also bad and loose so i changed that and still no change. i hear it mostly from the drivers side front suspension.


i can also hear it from the gearbox side but im pretty sure thats the DMF and will be replaced soon


however last night i thought id check the suspension and saw this little crack/rust mark. could this be the cause?

if i was to change it, should i also renew the top mounts? or do they generally last
