  1. Id really appreciate if you would update me because for a while i had a gut feeling that i may have an engine mount or transmission mount thats loose but really have no idea how to check for it so you saying that comes at the right time.Hope the weathers kind if you are doing it outside ;-)
  2. No its a Zetec S 1.8 petrol mate . The power is woeful if im honest.
  3. Always put Goodyear tyres on since i got it 4 years ago.The vibrations started about 2 months or so back .
  4. Hi all, Been having long term issues with steering vibration that at times was fairly violent.Found a few months back rear wheels needed replacing and put them at the front,had new discs and pads put in the front and garage found offside suspension arm bush needed replacing with the arm but still got a slight vibration thats annoying.So had all alloys refurbed and two were buckled so had that sorted and had about 3 alignments and balancing done too....its still there! So took it to a performance car specialist who looked over it and said there was a slight vibration which he also felt through the seat and accelerator . Now the vibration is like something is out of play as it comes in about 65mph . The performance guy said the only thing he could find was slight play in the offside driveshaft but it was still fairly small and to leave it until it got worse.He said the cost to replace just the offside was £390.I asked if that was to do both sides as i have seen mobile guys charge that for the pair but he said just the one side !! Anyone think this small amount of play may cause vibration through the steering at all ? Im just really confused about all this.

  6. Its ok,think i have to hack at it with a knife and screwdriver......i hope.PS is there any way to delete a post here as i dont want to waste folks time and after finding the answer i wanted to delete .Is there a protocol for it?Many thx
  7. Hi all, Just a bit worried.Have bought a new roof rack for my MK2.5 Zetec S and just gone to have a look under the cap that protects the fitting area but found this.I know some use a sharp knife to cut an area but every vid i have seen doesnt look like this.Have i got problems where i cant fit it or do i try to cut this area out ? Thanks so much all, Your resident panic monger ;-)
  8. You are a legend Lenny in the community,always were and always will be Sir.Your guides have helped so many including myself so do not be hard on yourself buddy :-)
  9. Thats just what i thought Lenny but most of the ones listed have clips that also have to go under the top of the door which you cant do with the 3 door for some reason.It had me puzzled each time i did the compatability test and said not to be used on 3 door!!!
  10. Looking for a roof rack for a 3 door MK2.5 . Am on a fairly tight budget so below £50 would be about all i could afford at the moment . I have looked on Ebay and all i keep coming up with are ones for 5 door etc and saying not available so am a bit lost.So any 3 door owners recommend anything ? Many thanks all
  11. Hi all, Back again.Well after a day of trying to sort out steering vibrations i have had 2 new tyres,found out 1 alloy is like an egg shape due to pot holes with two others possibly buckled which will go in for all four to be checked and repaired next week,finding i need the binnacle soldering due to throwing codes (The infamous dry solder!) and then after all was done told me i needed the front shock absorbers replacing as they are both leaking a lot. So far the bill has come to nearly £900 for odds and sods which has killed me but got to keep the car on the road due to poor health issues and if i lose it im in trouble. Just wondered as a ball park folks how much would you say for a pair of shock absorbers supplied and fitted ? Also the guys sorted maybe 70% of the vibration by putting the new tyres on the front and egg shaped one at back and i know buckled alloys might be an issue but would worn shocks cause any steering vibrations? Thanks so much guys , i REALLY appreciate all the comments over the past few weeks.
  12. Finally got the covers off (Thanks stoney) but an hour later go to start the car and get an engine malfunction warning.Checked the Test screen and got E200 and E197 codes so then get the battery pack out and it starts so took it for a 5 mile run and all seems ok but then checked Forscan and have P2122 , C1235 , C1234 , C1233 codes (ABS and i believe Throttle sensor codes) Getting tired on having a crap Focus 😞
  13. I need to hire you full time mate,you are a legend!
  14. Ok just went out in the rain with a better torch and saw the two but each time i push one down it flicks straght back up before i can push down and out the next one.Ill keep persevering once the rains off.As always,thanks Stoney.
  15. Thats the thing mate,i can only see one notch in there 😞
