Ford Ka MK2 knocking thud noise

Recommended Posts

I now have the Haynes manual of someone who kindly gave me it saving me the £21 so I now have all the torque settings.

Most of the torque settings I can figure out which nut or bolt it's on about while some I don't understand which but, the 2 main wishbone bolts, the hidden one that comes from the front behind the crash bar and the one below going up are both 120nm.

Make sure when doing the wishbone bolt from below that the wishbone itself kinda of level not dropping down like when you've got the wheel off.

Either, wheel on then torque or jack up the ball joint of the wishbone with the wheel off till it's level'ish then torque it up.

It just stops any unevenness
