pedal box

07 April 2009 - 08:34 AM


Had the pedal box and clutch cable replaced a couple of years ago on a 1.8 93 Fiesta diesel but the symptoms have returned. Occasionally when pressing the clutch it's as if a protection feature kicks in to prevent strain on the clutch cable - the pedal suddenly gives way and a ratchet type sound is heard when you release it. It doesn't seem to be getting worse but why would it return after less than 2 years? Is it a sign of a bigger issue? The main cost last time was the labour so is it not a diy fix?
Thanks :rolleyes:

Fiesta booming noise at 45 mph

28 May 2008 - 12:17 PM

I borrowed my wife's 93 Fiesta 1.8 diesel which she's had from new. At about 45 mph a sort of booming resonant noise appears and goes once past 50 mph. It comes back again around 65 mph but not as loud. The noise is different to a wheel bearing and the car drives normally apart from this. The noise is difficult to pinpoint but I think it is from the front. Can anyone suggest any cause, could it be a transmission noise? If you drive locally ie 30 mph zones you wouldn't hear any noise at all. Thanks.
