Ford Ka W Reg 2000 1.3I

Recommended Posts

i guys, last weekend i bought a ford ka w reg 2000, put it thru mot and passes with medium work done to it, allthough before i took it down i noticed a clunking noise at the front when i put full lock on to the right (clockwise), didnt think anything about it (im new to this!) and when i got home i noticed it again, so took it back to the garage, they checked it over and said that it was the alloys that had been put on (before i purchased it) that were the wrong size and to get some spacers for them, i dont mind doing this if its the right thing to do!! could i please have some advice on this as i dont really know what size to get (my wheels are 13inch) and what about the bolts for the alloys? surely ill need a bigger size?..if so what will i need to get?? is it even that thats the problem?..or does it sound like something else?? please help me as i dont want to be driving my car if i could make it worse..thanks guys!! x

Knocking on full lock may be a few things

like you stated alloys not fitted correctly will lock.. Also driveshafts knock when they are on there way on Full Lock
