    Fiesta ABS warning light

    Turns out it was a wheel bearing, and the bonus part for me was I just caught the end of the warranty so it cost me £000.00p :D cheers for your help.. :wink:

    Fiesta ABS warning light

    Hi neo :wink: . Thanks for your reply. I have now started to get a rumbling noise as if the pads are catching on the discs this noise fades away when I apply the brakes. I have removed both wheels today but nothing appears to be wrong. Looks like a trip to the local Ford Dealers in the morning...

    Hi all :wink: this is my sons 1st car having only just passed his test and he was trying to tell me what was going wrong. The way he was describing the loss of power I interpreted that as being engine problem, and the burning smell to be electrical. However, after quite a while racking my...

    Driveshaft rumble???

    Hi all, this is getting silly now :evil: I have today replaced the CV joint on the "noisy" side and repacked the other end with grease. Put the wheels back on and guess what? STILL NOISY (sorry for shouting). I cannot see anything I have done to cause this. There was no noise prior to me...

    Driveshaft rumble???

    Just tried it again with wheels removed and lower arms supported. In low gear and both hubs turning there is a bit of a rumble/knock. However, if I stop and hold the hub on the side that appears to rumble/knock the noise stops. If I stop and hold the other hub then the noise from the other side...

    Wheel bearing trouble

    Hi Markie, it`s a precision fit therefore there is no room for it to be knocked off. It has to be pulled off evenly. I just wondered if it could be heated up and clamped in a vice and removed that way....

    Wheel bearing trouble

    Hi everybody :wink: I am replacing hub bearings on the front of a ford fiesta. When I knocked the part that holds the wheel on to seperate the hub the bearing broke apart leaving half of the bearing case stuck on the shaft. Will it come off easier if I heat the bearing ring?? cheers

    Ford Fiesta service/warrenty

    Hi davieboy :wink: Thanks for that chap. So what you are saying is if I brought a new car from Ford it would come with 1years warranty with the option of extended warranty for a further two years provided it was serviced by Ford? I may as well just have it serviced at my local garage at...
