  1. Mk3 Petrol Engine, Exhaust and Induction
    Hard to explain but I’ll give it my best, so basically when I first set off in my car and driving normally the car is fine with normal acceleration noise, however as soon as I speed up to 70mph and drive at that speed for a period of time between 1 minute or potentially 30 mins as I’ve done both...
  2. Mk3 Suspension, Steering & Chassis
    So I'm asking if this is normal on the st3 pre facelift, engine Not running you rock the steering and it knocks, is this normal? Can't really heat it with engine running but it has a exhaust and mods fitted making it loud. Had it jacked up. Can't feel any moment in anything
  3. Mk3 Suspension, Steering & Chassis
    When I got my MK3 Estate, the previous owner had fitted some lower H&R coilovers, but he did supply the original springs. I replaced the H&Rs with the OEMs as the ride quality was rough, fine apart from that though. One of the springs was cracked when I took it off so I cant put them back on...

    Hi folks I was hoping that someone could help me. I own a 2017 Mk3 Focus ST and all has been great with the car so far apart from in the last couple of days a rattle has appeared and i just cannot figure out where it is coming from! The rattle comes from either the passenger side air...
  5. Mk2 Interior, Heating, Air Con, Noises & Smells
    Hi chaps, I have googled the **** out of this minor annoyance I am having but I cannot find a solution... On startup I let the car warm up before setting off but most mornings about 20 seconds down the road (I am always in 2nd doing 10 mph) no accelerating I get a very brief vibration and...
  6. Mk2 Engine, Exhaust and Induction
    Hi, I am a new ST owner, loving every bit of it so far :) As I am new to the Owners Club I apologise now if this is in the wrong section. I have searched the forum for a few days and I have been unable to locate a thread that describes the issue I am having with my new (new to me) ST-3. The...
  7. Mk2 Interior, Heating, Air Con, Noises & Smells
    Hi guys, This has been happening for a while now but never really looked into it as I usually have music on and it drowns it out. I have a rattle that comes through the dash at around 1800-2000 RPMs. This happens when driving, or when stopped with clutch in and when stopped in neutral. After...
  8. Mk2 Brakes, Wheels & Tyres
    Hi guys, Been lurking on here a while but first time posting. I bought a PFL Colorado Red ST back in December of last year. Had a little browse around before making this post but haven't come across anything, so figured I'd throw this out there. A month ago I had a few bits replaced...
  9. Mk2 Interior, Heating, Air Con, Noises & Smells
    Hi guys, Look for ideas what this noise could be. I get a rattle coming from under the car, it sounds louder from the left than from the right hand side, and if I have windows all closed it can't be heard inside the car. When I have the passenger side window down and driving along an uneven...
  10. Focus ST Mk2 Non Technical Discussion
    Another wicked sounding 2.5 engine, what do you think to this noise? BEAST
  11. Mk2 Engine, Exhaust and Induction
    Is there any common issues associated with the throttle body after fitting a DSCI induction kit? Not long after fitting the kit it seems as if when you turn off the car, the throttle body slams shut giving off a clunk? Thats what it sounds like anyway! Was struggling to take revs today and start...
  12. Mk3 Diesel Engine, Exhaust and Induction
    Hi All Possibly a stupid question - but couldn't find anything in current threads, and its bugging me; Picked up a new ST3 in may, covered 3,000 miles so far, all good. I've started to notice, on occasions when driving through the gears (especially 2,3,4) the exhaust becomes some what louder...
  13. Focus ST Mk3 Non Technical Discussion
    Hi Guys, Just fitted the Turbosports Kompact Shortie BOV - it's awesome but a little too much noise for what I want ( and the missus went bonkers ). I'll knock 20quid of the RRP so it's yours for 140 pounds. PM me if interested... details here ...
  14. Mk2 Turbo & Intercooler
    Hi all, I posted else whereon the forum for this matter but it looks like it would be more at home here (sorry im new) When driving I get a loud whistling noise but only ever when the boost goes OVER 1/4 mark, not before and not when idling. More suspiciously its only started since I put my new...
  15. Mk2 Engine, Exhaust and Induction
    Evening chaps Got home from work this evening and as I parked my car I could here this whining noise so I took the following video - help? http://vid244.photobucket.com/albums/gg6/mrduverne/Focus%20ST-3/3DBAAF43-1789-4327-882E-A7AFD88AD9C8.mp4 Anyone had similar?
  16. Mk3 Interior, Heating, Air Con, Noises & Smells
    I have a Focus ST Estate on a 62 plate. I noticed a buffering noise coming from the drivers door - took it to the dealer who adjusted the door, however the noise has now come back as a vibration sound further down the door. The sound is clearest over bumpy surfaces and also at cruising speed...
  17. Mk2 Brakes, Wheels & Tyres
    Hi guys, I am having an issue that is driving me mad... I recently bought my ST MK2 and I am hearing a whirring noise from the front wheels when accelerating. I have changed the tyres, steering rack, suspension, brakes (discs and pads) and had the tracking looked at and the noise is still...
  18. Mk2 Engine, Exhaust and Induction
    I have a slight rattle coming from the engine when starting the car, I believe it could be the timing chain but i'm not too sure if the engine is a chain or a belt? Also i have been told it could be the tensioner for the chain if it is a hydraulic tensioner. Could anyone shed some light on...
  19. Mk2 Brakes, Wheels & Tyres
    Ok so I had the ST in with Arnold Clarke last week as needed new top struts, bushes and droplinks on both front sides (only 1 side was knackered causing knocking noise when going over uneven ground, speed humps etc but replaced both sides as per good practice). Came back and was fine and not...
  20. Mk3 Petrol Engine, Exhaust and Induction
    Hi guys. Hoping you can help me. I currently own an ST3 Mk3 Estate. I absolute love the look of the exhaust but the noise outside the cabin isn't special. I would love a deeper more muscley sound but I don't want to change the look of the exhaust. Any ideas as to what's best? Cheers, Tom
