      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. Power Steering

    2008 smax 90k miles. Power steering whining like a mule 400 miles after buying from garage in Leicester, my mechanic is currently flushing out existing fluid and replacing bottle and fluid. I have been told 50% chance this will fix the issue. If not then apparently power steering rack has to be replaced at a cost of 800 euro plus labour. Any thoughts from anyone? Will update on the outcome. I have 3 months warranty but am in west of Ireland, garage in Leicester
