In Topic: Fiesta 2010 Tdci 1.4

Things have developed tomorrow it's getting two track rod ends. Left hand track rod
Has movement in it when at slow speed and slightly turning less than quarter of a turn.
In straight line position it's fine.

 

Hi,

 

Almost identical symptoms on our Fiesta 1.4tdci, really annoying, did the changing of the track rods solve the problem?  At our wits end as it niggles whenever driving! Any help much appreciated!

 

Thanks

 

Will


In Topic: Fusion - Knocking Through The Pedals, Vibration When Changing Down

Hi, juddering/vibration seems to be through the car rather than just the pedal.  The jolts/thump when going over bumps is felt through any pedal but not really through the seat/steering wheel.  Is it possible the 2 are linked (bumps started before the vibration) or more likely to be different?  Sorry I know it's difficult to guess without driving the car. I'm just getting v. frustrated and it hasn't done it on mechanic test drives!

OK I'll throw in my idea that it may be the engine mounts, does this sound feasible/possible?  Apparently one (rear I think) of them is starting to show signs of wear but mechanic says it shouldn't be causing a problem.

 

If not any other suggestions anyone?  

 

Thanks.

Just for info if anyone comes across this thread.

 

Turned out to be front suspension bushes.  Not the cheapest things to replace but solved the problem instantly.  Apparently they weren't 'that bad' but they obviously were the cause of the problem.

Hi, thanks, makes sense, I'll get them to have a particular look at the discs. It used to just vibrate when driving, the brake vibration is more recent, maybe they have got worse over time.

Thanks again,

Will
