Noises from BA front end

I purchased my BA XR6 in September and it has only done 5000kms but it has already developed a creaking noise in the front end. Everytime you turn the wheel it goes creak, creak, creak. Has anybody else with BA's expereinced the same or no of any inherent problems with the BA front end. It almost sounds like it is an oldd XF!

Interesting, I had the same problem, and the right hand sway bar rubber was replaced, it was split in two..

Re: Noises from BA front end

it's under warrenty take it to the dealer.
Never ceases to amaze me that people would bother to stuff with a new car when someone else can do it for free.

Where in adelaide do you live? There are heaps of Ford dealers around.

Breathe! It's only the internet....
