The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. New Ford Owner Help

    Thanks for the reply. I'm going to have to take the car for a run and see if the whine disappears when fully up to temp. Our commute is only 2 miles, so probably never fully warmed up going to work.
  2. New Ford Owner Help

    Hi All Having driven a Honda Prelude for the past 10 years, I have only been a member for a couple of months and this is my first time posting. Back in February, I sold my Prelude and we bought a 58 plate 1.25 Style with 6,700 miles on the clock B) 500 miles later and we are very happy with our purchase, but we do have a couple of things that I need advice on. When we bought the car, there was an occasional squeak from the gearstick when changing gear. Despite Bristol Street having the car back and sorting it - the noise has started to reappear in the past few days. Any ideas what the problem actually is ? Our main concern at the moment is that there is a whine/whirr from the gearbox area when in neutral - this disppears as soon as the clutch pedal is pressed. A problem I have always associated with the release bearing. Is there anything else that could be the problem? Finally, am I right in thinking that being a 58 plate (October 2008) that the vehicle is still covered by the manufacturers warranty? This is the first time I have ever owned a car that is new enough to be within the warranty period, so can I just go to any Ford dealer or do I have to go back to Bristol Street where I bought it (90 mile round trip). Do I need documentation of some sort? Sorry for all the questions, but if you guys don't know, I'll go and buy another Honda :D TIA Verne
