in my old mans BA whenever i turn the steering to full or close to lock there is a repetative clicking sound from the front suspention.
anyone now what is causing this ?if so would appreciate advice.
MIne did it too. There is a technical service bulletin issued by Ford on the problem. When you take the car for the next service mention it and they fix it.. or.. if the dealer is like mine.. fix it and break another 3 things in the process.
Its the left hand rack stud tha makes the clicking noise. It sounds scary but it's not really. The rack actually moves from side to side on the rack studs and makes the clicking noise. I do a few of them every week at the dealership i work for. We are meant to remove the rack, shampher the hole in the rack for the studs and insert a sleeve made of stainless stell, but haha backing off the rack stud nuts and jamming grease up there fixes the problem quite well.
There's a whole TSB (technical service bulletin) out on it.
