      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, Newbie here.. I have a 2005 tdci st that has covered almost 100k miles. Had the car now for a little over 2 years without a single problem. However, yesterday I jumped out of the car to use the cashpoint at tesco and left the wife at the wheel as the car park was packed, a car pulled out of a space next to her so she reversed into it. As she was reversing into the space I noticed a rattling noise, which after a few attempts at forcing the noise seems to only happen when the car is settling back to idle after being revved slightly. It is quite loud (I was about 40feet away when I first heard it) but its the first time I've ever known it make a noise out of the ordinary, and I'm not particularly mechanically minded so any help will be much appreciated. Just after a few ideas of likely culprits as I don't want to walk into a garage and sound like a complete novice and get ripped off. Thanks in advance guys
