      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. Humming noise at 50mph

    Both front tyres didnt need balancing! So can just assume that budget tyre is culprit. Noise is much more noticeable on some road surfaces than others so must be " crappy " budget tyre. Get what you pay for I suppose!
  2. Humming noise at 50mph

    One was a budget tyre and one a Firestone. Firestone( never used ) was my spare so tyre place just fitted it without balancing it. I am embarrassed to say that I havent checked the Firestone pressure yet
  3. Humming noise at 50mph

    ok will try it
  4. Humming noise at 50mph

    Thanks for the reply. Noise is almost certainly coming from front of car. There is no vibration connected with the noise and no noise/vibration from gear box. <_<
  5. Humming noise at 50mph

    I own a focus tddi estate and recently I have been getting a humming/droning noise when I reach 50mph ( it is literally bang on 50mph). It subsides slightly past 50mph but does carry on. I recently had two new tyres on the front, one of which was not balanced ( but i dont think noise started immediately after fitting.) I have also had two front wishbones fitted at the same time. Garage has checked wheel bearings and they are okay. Any ideas?
