      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. hi when i apply full lock i get this jerky movement from the drivers side wheel, also when i brake that same wheel wanders, and when driving sometimes the wheel wanders mostly pulling the car to the right
  2. hi thanks for the reply i bought it from a dealership so i am going to phone them up and have them look at it
  3. Hi when i do speeds about 50 mph and above there is a rattling noise coming from the front of car sound like if it's coming from the engine bay it only happens when i press the accelerator pedal to gain speed but when i ease of the pedal the noise is not there i remember when i looked through the owners manual i read something about the regeneration process of the dpf filter that there can be a clicking metallic sounds at low speeds or engine idle so i don't know if that is normal or there is a problem i just bought the car two weeks ago

    maybe people just think it's still legal i thought so my self until now, i personally won't be taking the risk so it's worth checking out prior to getting any work done

    thanks for pointing that out to me as i would not have thought of checking it out as i have heard of lots of people getting them removed, i definitely wont be getting this removed now so thanks for the advice

    hi jeebowhite thanks for the great advice as i have heard of lots of people getting the dpf filter removed i thought i might be legal but it goes to show you need to seek advice before removing the filter

    i am glad it can pass a mot with the dpf filter removed. Is there any difference in performance and mpg. Do you have to inform the insurance company. I would prefer to take it to a garage for the removal and remap prices are ok considering the price you would pay for a new dpf filter

    hi landy39 how much did it cost to get the dpf removed It's something i will consider later on once the car is finished with the warranty is it ok with mot's with the dpf filter removed
