Ford Fiesta Mk6 Intermittent Rubbing Noise From Wheel

03 June 2015 - 08:05 AM

Hi guys, wondering if anyone can help my,
I recently hit a kerb coming round a corner, small dint in alloy but nothing else much so drive on fine. A week later my car has started making a rubbing noise kind like something is rubbing on the tyre. But only appears intermittent when driving on A roads and some side roads. I know some roads have ribbed extra grip Tarmac but this is not the same noise

I've taken it to a mechanic and he says he cannot see anything rubbing on the gear. I'd drive train suspension or the tyre itself, but he did mention the tyre tread was aggressive and getting low, so I change them independently for Goodyear efficient grip performance then balanced , hoped noise would go away... It has not.

Could it be the tracking although I did a little test on a 0 camber straight and it wasn't pulling to one side, nor is the steering wheel angled to one side when driving

2006 Fiesta Not Locking

21 August 2014 - 06:54 PM

My Fiesta Freedom has started to refuse to lock and unlock suddenly.

 

My daily fiasco is.

 

Me coming out of house, pressing unlock button

nothing

Then pressing unlock button all over car

nothing

Press button from afar

nothing

press button next to boot

nothing

press button next to lock..

FINALLY unlocks!

 

 

Then the same happens again when I want to lock it

 

Also this happens randomly, sometimes it works fine, sometimes it does not

 

I have resorted to manually operating the locks as Im tired of the charade.

Does anybody have any idea what I could do.

 

I don't have any battery after market alarms, just a dashcam which it turn off when Im parked.

 

 

Got both keys aswell

cheers! :ph34r:
