  1. Thanks for the update Dark Andy. Glad it's all sorted out for you. I'm still waiting for the weather strip to arrive at my dealer. They recon that should stop this rattle. If that doesn't help then I'll mention your solution to them. It's very annoying as it seems to be getting louder day by day.
  2. Hi JackH95, Main thing I did is took a picture of the door from inside and out. Marked the area concerned and handed that picture in. I also realised that due to the vibration in the door the chrome strip near the window slided from its place. It could be pushed back in its place but would slide again. I’ve not had a call back yet.
  3. Just an Update: Picked up my car today from the dealer. They’ve ordered a new door panel for the rattle. Also the vibration in the window was resolved by applying more lubricants. Will be waiting to get a call now.
  4. There is no squeak at all just a rattle and vibration in the window. Only driver side
  5. I’m taking my car in on Monday. Will update you all.
  6. I've never had problem like this before with any of my cars. Also noticed yesterday that chrome trim on driver's door slides backwards possibly with the vibration (I mentioned). I can push it back to it's original position with a finger.
  7. Hello everyone, I am a proud owner of a Focus MK4 Vignale. Loving the car as I came back to focus after a long time. Everything is brilliant with the car except a rattle from the driver's door with slight vibration going the window. I have read people complaining about the rattle. Rattle is there even when the music is turned off so it's not related to the bass in the car. Anyone else experienced this and managed to get it sorted? I've got the car booked with dealer for 29th July. Thank you
  8. Hi JackH95, Just wanted to check if you managed to get the rattle sorted. I've just bought Focus Vignale and having the same issue of rattling. Thank you
  9. Thank you JamesB, I've just checked on Ford Etis and my focus was just built yesterday. Very excited now. Strangely enough my Kuga just reached 31 mpg yesterday all of a sudden while I was driving on M25. Only around 11 miles journey but couldn't believe my eyes. Filled up a tank with over 400 miles to go. First time ever. Oh well, it's too late now.
  10. Sorry for the delay JamesB, Mine is 2WD as well. Some motorway journeys are also involved.
  11. Hi everyone, I'm in the same boat as all of you. Bought a brand new Kuga 1.5 150PS petrol back in October and been a struggle ever since. It's got nothing to do with our driving style. It's purely the engine. It's absolutely useless engine. Mileage is crap as well and fords have now confirmed not to expect more then 28-29 mpg from Kuga with this engine. I've had plenty of cars before this Kuga and have never struggled so much with any of those. I'm so fed up that I've just ordered a New Focus with 1.5ltr engine which is the same engine in fiesta ST. I'll be loosing out around £900 but at least I'll be happy to get rid of this gas guzzler. After hearing my issues my dealer has started suggesting others not to buy Kuga with 1.5 petrol engine.
  12. Hi Robdav99, As rbitton782 said, bluetooth system does go banana sometimes. I normally pullout out the fuse under front passenger side. Wait few minutes and put it back. Should fix the issue and saves you disconnecting the battery.
  13. Hi Rebecca, Ford Smart repair is provided by the company called Car Care Plan. Number is on the website. Hopefully this will resolve your issue.
  14. Hi RainmakerRaw, Congratulations on getting new car. S-Max is a please to drive and very comfortable. I have done the same thing my S-max 2017. I've removed the fuse labeled Data Link connector. Also, as I have a keyless entry, I've bought a signal blocker pouch from amazon. This blocks the signal boosters from working from outside the house. Plus a simple stoplock steering lock will be a brilliant deterrent. Be careful when removing the fuse though as the fuse is a micro fuse and can easily slip behind the plastic trim. All the best.
