      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. Rear shock absorber knock?

    You have to remove the cover around the wheel arch which is held in with a series of round clips, at the very top of the shock there are two bolts at either side, remove these and that is the top of the shock free, release the bolt at the bottom remembering the nut does not move and stays(just the long bolt). In my fusion both shocks were gone and everything above that had perished(bush and sleeves), I recommend a replacement from Ford as you get everything complete including new bolts and it is all built into a new mounting cup and bushes. I found motor factors could only supply a shock on its own which is useless as you will see there is loads more to it in mounting at the top and turned out to be cheaper too not to mention it takes about 10 mins to refit when complete. hope this helps
