How do I replace the lower ball joints in my 2009 Ford Territory?

Answered by CarsGuide 15 Sep 2017

They should be pressed out; bashing them out will most likely damage the control arms. Take the arms to a local mechanic and have him press them out.​​

Territory F6X long-term parts supply

Answered by CarsGuide 27 Jul 2014

I believe the three local makers will maintain their commitment to owners long after they stop manufacturing. In your case, the credit goes to Ford's Stephen Kruk who was straight onto the problem.

2009 Ford Territory steering column replacement

Answered by CarsGuide 10 Jan 2014

It is a common problem on the Territory and the Falcon and Ford will only supply the full column assembly. Crazy. It's out of warranty, so you will have trouble getting Ford to fix it at their cost, although you could try getting them to pay at least for part of the repairs. Other than that go to a Ford wrecker and have them install a used switch for you at a much reduced cost.

2009 Ford Territory whistling sound

Answered by CarsGuide 19 Jul 2013

From what you describe you should be able to hear it if you lift the bonnet and from that you should be able to isolate it to a particular part of the car. If you can do that you can fix it. Take it to a mechanic.

Ford Territory has rust

Answered by CarsGuide 6 Oct 2011

Start with your dealer and point out what you are concerned about. If you want to strengthen your case you could call in an independent expert to examine your car and report on the repairs. One you could consult is Graeme Cuthbert on 0422 444 335.

Ask Smithy Xtra Ford Ghia Territory issues

Answered by CarsGuide 23 Aug 2011

That is a really bad run, one that in other countries might have the car officially labeled a ‘lemon’. But as we don’t have ‘lemon’ laws the carmaker doesn’t have to replace the car or refund your money. But they are responsible for fixing it. I don’t believe you will have any success in getting the car replaced, but you could try pressing the dealer/Ford for an extended warranty.

Under the Australian Consumer Law introduced in January 2011, a consumer can request a refund or a replacement for persistent problems if the car doesn’t do the job it’s supposed to do.
