      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Fiesta St Ball Joint

    It appears my drivers side ball joint has had enough, tightened it twice but its loosened up again. Can the balljoint be fitted easily to the wishbone, if I'm right in saying the ball joint is riveted onto the wishbone? Would most spurious ball joints come with 3 new bolts for securing to the wishbone? I.e. can I do this myself or does it need a mechanic. I've changed ball joints before just not on fords, it was a simple 2 bolts before.. thanks
  2. Steering Jerking On Left Turn

  3. Steering Jerking On Left Turn

    hmm, what i discovered today is on left turn if I blip the throttle or floor it, it seems to pull around a lot, whereas if I just let it coast around the bed theres only a very slight jerk, I wonder is it the drive?
  4. On my Fiesta ST, when making a left turn, the steering 'jerks', as in it feels its shooting to the left, its fine making a right turn, and usually only occurs over 50kph, the left side of the car did hit a kerb at a bit of speed, damaged inner/outer tie rod, racking mounting bush? solutions? thanks

  9. Fiesta St150 Rear Stub Axle

    Can anyone tell me is the stub axle on the back of a 2005 ST150 (disc's + ABS) used on any other Ford model? I damaged mine but I'd rather get one from a breakers yard instead of dishing out for a new one. thanks
