Steering Column Clonk

07 March 2011 - 10:38 AM

Hi all,

I have a clonk when turning the steering wheel,it feels like it might be the column moving slightly. More so when going to full lock, it doesn't appear to affect the steering whilst driving.
I have had this for quite a while.
Has anyone had this problem? and, or found what the fault was, and the cure?

Thanks for any help in advance.


Air Con Not Very Cool?

22 May 2010 - 03:32 PM

Hi All,
I have a Ford Fusion 1400 TDCI Climate 57 plate, with just 18,000 miles. Just tried air con seems nowhere near as cool as it was last year.
So decided to buy a top up pack from Halfords. When i checked the pressure it shows just in the Yellow area, this means according to the tin, there is too much refridgerant in the car. The car was service by Ford dealer Evans Halshaw of Wolverhampton last October. I'm wondering if they may have over filled the unit? if they bothered to top up at all! Don't know if this would be part of service?
But i am also thinking there may be something strange going on, as the Electric radiator fan switches on and off about every 5 seconds.
Should the fan be running when the air con is on?
There also seems to be a few flys stuck to the lower half of the radiator, but the engine is running correct temp.
Anybody any ideas to what i can try, or test?

Your help would be appreciated.

Yours hopefully
