      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. Happy Birthday smartie93!

  2. Cv Joint Failure?

    Like i said its definitely not the suspension. The noise is caused by the rotation of the wheel alone, no lateral, longitudinal or vertical forces, just the engine spinning the wheel. I'll investigate properly tomorrow. thanks anyway :)
  3. Cv Joint Failure?

    thanks for the reply :) Its definitely not the suspension. by testing it, I mean I jacked one front wheel up and put in fifth letting the engine spin the wheel on idle. I don't believe in sending cars to a mechanic haha
  4. Cv Joint Failure?

    HI I recently noticed that my focus was making a clunking noise the second i turned into a right hand corner, I assumed that this was a track rod end and I'd get round to changing it soon. But when checking the wheel bearing on the driver side... which is also knackered. I thought i'd check the passenger side. only to be greeted by a regular clunking noise, sounding like its coming from inside the engine bay. I ruled out the gearbox because surely it would make the noise regardless of which wheel is spun, its not the wheel bearing. Could it potentially be a diff bearing? though again it sounds nothing like bearing. And one last thing it seems to improve when slowing down ie load on the driveshafts is reversed. I'm new to the car so maybe someone more experienced with focuses (foci?) than me knows better. Car is a 2000 mk1 1.8 petrol Thanks :)
