  1. Will jack up and check,but really sounds like w/bearing noise.
  2. Hi All, I have a 2016 1.5 tdci C-Max, rear bearings sound noisy , car only done 20000 mls. can they be repacked with grease. all ready fitted sound deadening. Thanks Mick.
  3. Stop/start n/w again so bought special charger, took over 24 hrs to charge fully, lost charge again,had battery checked at garage , £172 for new one fitted. apparently alternator is over £300. stop/start is not cheap.
  4. Did weekly shop yesterday , Stop/Start working again. Thanks for help. Mick.
  5. Put battery on charge (low setting) after a few hours battery charged up. Thanks Mick.
  6. C-Max 1.5 tdci with stop/start. Battery is Varta EFB 75ah. 700A SAE/EN T7. Have a Ring Automotive charger 8 RCB208 with low/high setting can I use this to charge battery in situ and still connected , or must I buy special charger. Thanks Mick.
  7. Should read c-max , brain not in gear. Thanks for reply Mick.
  8. Hi All. I have a 2016 b-max 1.5 tdci , as we are in lockdown have only used car once a week, have noticed stop/start not working,thought battery could be low, how are you supposed to connect earth lead from charger to battery. can only just see it let alone reach it, also have small starter pack just in case , have read alternator will not fully charge battery if its too low Help, Mick.
  9. drive car and stop put in neutral with foot on brake, if engine stops you have stop/start. make sure A button is not on.
  10. I have a 2016 c-max and found michelin very noisy,fitted a load of sound proofing,much better. fitted two Falcon tyres to front and is now a lot quieter,also cheaper. must say Michelins only lasted 14000 miles,expected better.
  11. Took car out yesterday and followed book instructions . seems all ok. Thanks for your help. Mick.
  12. Hi all. I have a 2016 c-max 1.5tdci. after 1/2 hour driving home I turned engine off,fan kept running (louder than normal)and ran for more than a couple of minutes, checked temp and it was ok. started engine again and turned off , fan stayed on for a minute or two again but normal noise level. Not had this happen before,any ideas. Cheers Mick.

    Hi all, I have a 2016 1.5 tdci C-max, a couple of times when slowly approaching a car park barrier the brakes apply and make a horrible noise after the barrier had gone up. I don`t have front sensors and have checked pads & discs. spoke to Ford but no help. this has only happened at the same car park , once going in and twice coming out, and nowhere else.and not every time. Any ideas.Cheers Mick
  15. Check radius of tyres,if same check wheel dish. but thnk mondeo tyres to big.
