2 Fiesta Mk7's Squeaking Noise That Shudders/stunts?

18 July 2014 - 03:42 PM

Hi All,

Last month I traded in my Zetec and got a newer titanium, Great you may say..

However, before I traded in my Zetec I heard a loud squeaking sound when accelerating, I told the dealer about this when I gave it back and he said it's probably nothing, its ours to deal with now anyway! Great you may say...

 

However today, going down the road, with my windows down (As it is boiling, although the climate control and A/C in the titanium is great) I heard the squeak again, this time I was just coasting along... So I tried accelerating and there it is again!

When the car makes this noise it's almost as if the car taps the brakes just slightly aswell, only for a second. It's quite hard to explain but you can feel the car jolt very lightly, it doesn't necessarily shudder, very strange. You know when you go over a pothole and you can feel it momentarily? Basically that. The rest of the time the car makes no unexpected noises what so ever.

Seems to only happen in third gear in my Titanium but in my Zetec it was second gear, also have to get over atleast 3000 revs, apart from the time it just randomly did it.

Any ideas? Brakes getting stuck, something grinding? It seems to comes from the drivers side front.

If not I will take it to the dealers and question it.

Thanks!
