Even I have the same issue from the roof panel, right above the drivers head. Drives me mad, How did you get it fixed?Is it the roof lining?

The executive at chennai ford says its impossible to fix,(Typical chennai attitude) hope the guys at Kairali ford cochin will be able to.

If I were you, I would check it when a/c is off.

April 7th is the day when you hear about some good news from Ford India, I do not know what it is but I am guessing its one of the following:

1. Ford Figo 1.6 Launch
2. Revelation of the New Ford Fiesta (India Spec)
3. Announcing the ford fiesta classic

Its more likely to be option No.1, I guess.

@Mustang That post is in the previous page. Apparently Ford does not honour the suspension related warranty if we use nitrogen according to the SA.

Also they see more suspension related problems with vehicles which use nitrogen.

@Vishnurp99 : There is no such issue if you use nitrogen in the tires. Also nobody can come to know whether you are using nitrogen or not.

Hey guys
I have started observing that at low speeds i hear a Clunk noise its similar to having a ball in a metal container. I am assuming its from the front Suspensions, will be taking it to service center tomorrow. Anyone else with similar noise, its distinctive noise as though something has come loose and hits a metal body.

It's most probably the brake caliper shuddering noise. Few Figos have reported the issue here including mine. The A.S.S. folks would already know about it. Get the caliper adjusted/tightened. Not a major work/issue. I am assuming more than slow speed you experience it on bad roads.
