Is not worn pads?
They have an anti squeal shim in there that makes this sort of noise when turning, or moving at low speeds

#341268 Mondeo - Less Miles Mk3 - Or More Miles Mk4?

Posted by adambell on 10 March 2014 - 10:49 PM

My personal preference would advise against the mk3, I think the mk4 is an all round better option. Not only does it look better and newer, but the level of quality is a vast improvement over the mk3.
The Zetec model you have in that link looks to be a decent example. Personally I don't like the wheels but that's just me.
If it was my money I would go for the mk4 Zetec all the way

Sorry Chris, just having a laugh.
Here in the uk spinning is an exercise class that is generally populated by porky women who chat about female hygiene products whilst sweating like Michael Jackson on a fiddling charge.

Don't mean this as daft as it sounds but have you tried looking on all the little industrial estates, they are often just 2or 2 man companies working out of small units somewhere

#327862 Jesus Built My Mondeo!!!

Posted by adambell on 31 January 2014 - 03:41 PM

I have had my new mondeo or order for 3 months now and have been chasing the lease company to supply me with the VIN so I can look at the build spec on the etis website.
I finally got the VIN this morning and promptly looked on the website to see what goodies my car is coming with.
When looking on etis I noted that the build date was 30/11/0002.
It appears that Jesus and his carpenter dad Joseph were knocking out mk 4 mondeo's way back then and ford simply pass them off as their own work.

Obviously this is just some sort of typo but it really amused me so I thought I would share.

#324349 Clutch And Cruise Control - Are They Linked? Ford Mk4 Mondeo

Posted by adambell on 21 January 2014 - 08:14 PM

Very true guys, I guess it's just the fear if the unknown. My current car is an Audi but the mondeo should have a fantastic spec so I guess I am looking forward to getting it in that respect

#321662 Fog Lights - Only Legal In Fog?

Posted by adambell on 14 January 2014 - 07:30 PM

Please don't take it personally but I find people that drive around with fog lights on when it's clearly not foggy to be absolute helmets. There is quite simply no need and no point.
I think the police should be far stronger in enforcing this rule.
