In Topic: Front Wheel Bearing?

The hub and bearing are a complete unit, it's a gen2 wheel bearing.

 

Yes, that's what I meant. He can't replace the bearing on its own, he has to replace the hub.

Jordan, you may find you have to replace the hub complete with bearing.


In Topic: Loud Rattle After Oil Change

With 5w It should be thin enough when cold to power up tappets etc instantly, sound like the quantity is low or its wasnt 5w

 

On the Mk1 Zetec, Ford stated 10W/40 oil, but that made a huge noise on start up, they very quickly specified 5W/40 which fixed the issue

Maybe use 0W/40 next time,

 

But first top it to the max which it should have been after an oil change anyway!

Mk 1 Focus was 5W-30 from day one.

You said you had the glow plugs out, tested and then replaced with new. Have you checked that there is power to them during start? Otherwise, I'm not sure what to suggest except perhaps using your car to tow the Focus to get it started initially.

I would try out a set of Linglong "Ditchfinders"  :lol:

 

Serious answer.......... Dunlop Sport Bluresponse or Goodyear Efficientgrip are my usual choices.
