I Want To Drive Again!!!

21 November 2015 - 10:02 PM

I haven't driven for 9 weeks, and am getting seriously bored!


I broke my collar bone in September wrestling a lion (actually I fell off a pavement-sober!)


The bone was poking up into the skin, so after an operation, a titanium plate and some hefty physio sessions, I'm still not ready to get behind the wheel.


Anyone else been out of action for this long for a similiar thing?


By the way, I drive for a living, so have had 9 weeks off - (paid thankfully!)

Strange Noise When Cornering

02 September 2015 - 09:09 PM

I have a 2008 Focus 1.6 Zetec 100. Recently it has started to make an odd clicking noise when cornering at speed. It is not a CV joint.


It sounds electronic and regular, almost like a relay switching. The sound appears to be coming from behind the dashboard towards the left of the car.


The sound only occurs when cornering right at speed - not fast, but enough to load the suspension, like a long sweeping right hander. It sounds a bit like the brake self test noise you hear at 12mph.


I think it may be related to the stability control but it seems to have no adverse effect on it.


Can anyone throw any light on it?
