I have a brand new transit connect limited. After a short 15 minute drive i have just got out the van and turned the engine off. The fan was on. It stayed on for about 5 minutes and it was quite loud and it smelt. The dials weren't suggesting that the van was overheating.

Answers

Hi,did mine couple week ago.if you take the bolt out at the top.then theres 2 more at the bottom.so you dont have to take bumper off.gently prise a driver underneath the headlight and press down on bumper,that should leave enough room to get a sock extension arm in.be careful not to snap the nuts Steve from West Yorkshire

Answer this question

Brian Young, Moray

Ford Transit Connect

My Transit Connect makes a lot of road noise, which varies with wheel speed, but not engine speed. Its a kind of buzzing or whining, and it increases from low pitch to higher pitch as I get faster. Maximum noise around 50 or 55 mph. I thought at first it was the front bearings, but it doesn't do that thing where the noise increases when you turn the steering wheel. And anyway both front wheel bearings were changed 3 years ago. Its not tyre noise either, as it doesn't change with the road surface. Any ideas?

Answer this question

Brian Young, Moray

Ford Transit Connect

I'm getting a humming noise from the front, which I thought was the tyres, but now I realise that the pitch doesn't change with the road surface. Just a constant hum connected with wheel speed. Its not the engine, as, when I go into neutral at 50, the noise remains the same. Its at its worst between 40 - 50 mph. What else can it be? Both front wheel bearings were changed 3 years ago.

Answers

I can answer my own question now: It was the front offside wheel bearings. They had only been changed 3 years ago, so I didn't think it could have been them. Brian Crawford Young from Moray
