A ford dealer who worked on my car put 8 guage fencing wire around the solenoid gasket to hold it together. Didn't tell me. It was only by coincedence another ford dealer found the temporary fix. When I contacted the first dealership they made all the excuses under the sun. By the way this is a 2003 BA. Ford Australia says it is not their problem.
SO..I took mine into the dealer for its 60k service.
One thing i asked them to look at was the handbrake was rubbing, could hear a shh-shhhing at car park speeds. They tell me they replaced a tension spring.all fixed no worries. So now at carpark speeds it dont go shhh-shhh it goes
thank you sinclair ford penrith

Ah.. Sinclair Ford Penrith. The same dealer who apparently is totally unable to perform a wheel balance. They tried twice on mine.. I then took it to a tyre place and they said it was the worst balance they'd ever seen.. one of the fronts were out by 70grams.
Is anyone out there able to recommend a quality service department in the Western Sydney area ?
