I posted on here the other day about a strange whining noise coming from my Fiesta Zetec S TDCI car. It's worse when I slow down and just before I come to a stand still. I noticed it just after I purchased it and took it straight back to the garage and they said they'd sort it. A week later I picked it up and the problem hadn't been solved - they said it was because the tires are low profile and are a cheap make. The noise is still there, but to be honest I don't think it is the tires, I think they were just fobbing me off until the warranty runs out! 

I've spoken to a couple of mechanics and they said they sound like it's the main bearing in the gear box! (I should be getting it looked at by a Ford mechanic later) for second opinion.

The garage where I purchased it are having it back Friday to look at it again.

The car has only done 47,000 miles!  :(((


Noisy Tyres

09 June 2013 - 01:20 PM

Hi I recently bought a 2009 Fiesta tdci zetec s. It's got the original 17 inch alloys with low profile tyres, (not makes I recognise). It drives lovely but has this annoying humming sound, (sounds more dramatic on smoother road surfaces and higher speed and at very low speed). I took it back to the garage where I bought it from and they had it for nearly a week looking at and testing various things to find the problem. They came back saying that it's the low profile tyres and because they are a cheap make. They went on to say that they tried another set of wheels and it didn't make the noise. So when I purchase new tyres I should get a better make. Just wondering if anyone else has had the same problem?? It's under warranty for a year from mechanical faults and only 3 months with all other things.
