      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. Click Noise From Rear Brake Drum

    It is possible, but the rear drums don't appear to have any ABS sensors on them, I think! but I'm not sure! One thing I do know is. The click is loud enough to be very annoying. Cheers Tedward
  2. I have a 57 plate Focus Style 1.6 Tdci. Every time I apply light, or heavy, pressure to the brake pedal I get a click from the rear offside drum. If I immediately press the pedal again I don't get the click. It only happens if the brake has been rested for a short time and not when under constant braking. So far I've had the drums off. Replaced the shoes, and messed around with the self-adjuster. All to no avail. One question though. When I replaced the shoes the stop tabs on the wheel cylinder were at the front with the shoe tab behind them. Is it possible they should be at the back. Therefore holding the shoe away from the back-plate. Also, the click doesn't happen if I use the handbrake to slow the car. Any help would be appreciated. Tedward
