[img]smileys/smiley3.gif[/img] We bought a 2004 1.6tdci zetec about 7 months ago from a local independent Ford dealer. Right from the start, there has been a really irritating clunking / rattling sound that comes from the nearside engine compartment. At first it only happened when the engine was cold but now it's all the time but it is most noticeable when accelerating from rest or pulling away from a junction turning left or right. It sounds as if the engine mountings are loose - but they have been checked! The car has been into the dealer 3 times and they have literally taken the car apart, replaced the wheel bearings and driveshaft but this has made no difference and they basically told us that we will have to live with it. Overall we are really pleased with the car but can anyone point us in the right direction with this problem?
