I’ve had a vibration noise on my car since buying it (used). Ford dealer couldn’t find the culprit, independent garage couldn’t find it either. I got annoyed and decided I’d be better off looking myself and it turned out that it was two of the metal clips holding the plastic wiper surround to the bulkhead that had come loose.

Squeezed them to make them tighter and all is quiet!

I had a vibration coming form  under the car.

It turned out to be the fuel pipes under the was really hard to track down, so I didn't bother using Ford, as they'd likely have given up...saying nothing wrong. 

The vibration was resonating at certain revs, and very apparent filling the cabin with the vibration, hence hard to track down to exact location at first.

I had to use someone to gently hold revs with vibration being heard, so I could look around.

I tracked it down to the the main feed/return pipes from the tank. Close to the tank entry / exit.

The exact location is by the rear nearside foot well.

You will have to unscrew the lower shield that protects the cars floor panel to view the pipes, but actually very easy, and only along the outside edge of the vehicles sill.

The pipes are formed with bends etc, and at this point to go up and down with the contour of the rear foot-well.

Its at the bend points where the pipes are clipped to the body that the vibration occurs.

I found that one of the pipes had become unclipped from the large plastic retaining clip...

I re-attached and actually also slightly bent one of the steel pipes to allow it to be more rigid in the clip, on the underside.

I think it had become unclipped due to poorly formed pipe work, and hard merely popped out of the holding location.

following this the noise was gone immediately! 


hope this helps some one.

Thanks Simon_uk. I too feel very bad vibrations on passenger side foot well. Mostly during idling. It fills up the entire cabin. I'll do similar checks now.
