Can't seem to locate any recalls for that issue. the replacement springs may not be up to the specifications that are called for. some of the cheap aftermarket replacements use to hard a steel (brittle) check that the correct spring is being installed.

Heater


Your heater control valve is faulty, these are a common fault and are mounted on the bulkhead with 2 rubber hoses and a 2 wire plug in the side. They are commonly found on ford ka and ford fiesta. A copy part can be bought from eBay for £30. Not much point in buying one 2nd hand as they commonly fail. Hope this is of help.

Steering not responding well


Automobiles: 2006-2007 Ford Five Hundred 2WD & AWD, Montego

If the steering is getting a little hard to turn at low speeds, this would indicate a loss of Power Steering, and the steering is reverting to "Non-Power" steering, just like the days of the Ford Model T or Model A. Loss of power steering is usually caused by low level of PSF (Power Steering Fluid).
So first on my checklist would be checking the PSF level in the reservoir.
Also bleed (air) from PS (Power Steering) pump.

The Ford Five Hundred has front MacPherson struts, so check these for leakage (of the dampening fluid in the strut cylinder), or breakage of their coil springs.
These springs can actually weaken over time, but this is impossible to see - you must "feel" it by bouncing the strut up & down - preferably with your hands on the top of the strut tower in the engine compartment (rather than on the exterior finish).
If the MacPherson struts have weak/broken springs, these components are not separately serviceable, and the strut would have to be replaced as a unit (and preferably both left/right to maintain smooth/even ride).

The Five Hundred also has rear shock absorbers with springs - check for leaks/breakage/weakness here too.

Steering losing responsiveness/wander - checklist
Priority Action Part Type Cause
1 Inspect Rack & Pinion - Center Wear From Internal Fluid Leaking Around The Rack Piston.
2 Inspect Steering Stabilizer Bracket - Loose or Broken Steering Stabilizer Bracket.
3 Inspect Front Lower Control Arm - Front Lower Control Arm loose/missing bolt(s)
4 Inspect Front Lower Ball Joints - Front Lower Ball Joint(s) Worn/Loose
5 Inspect Front Upper Ball Joints -Front Upper Ball Joint(s) Worn/Loose
6 Inspect Tire Pressure - Tire Pressure should be 35 PSI for the Five Hundred and Montego's P225/55R18 OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) tires.

Harsh ride - checklist

1 Inspect Rear Shock/Strut - Shocks/Strut failing/leaking.
2 Inspect Front Shock/Strut - Shocks/Strut failing/leaking.
3 Inspect Coil Spring - Incorrect Coil Spring Selection or Installation.
4 Inspect Coil Spring - Coil Spring broken.

if its a csat iron head it can be copper stiched ,if ally it can be welded ,but i have never heard of this as a common fault with fiestas though and i repair enough of them here in spain but i cannot argue with the man on the spot ,new head should be about 400/500 euros ,if you think you are being taken then say you want head to get a new one then take it to a engineering workshop and get a second opinion .the price i have quoted is for a basic head with no valves in it

Renault Scenic steering stiff to the right and crack noise


hi from uk from the symptoms you clearly describe may i suggest that you have someone to check both visually and physically by feeling the front suspension strut coil springs on both sides this problem sounds very much like you have a broken/cracked coil spring on one of the struts hence the crack ! when turning ? the stiffness is that the coil is broken and is not rotating on the top of suspension bearing as it is supposed to just one point? if this is the fault may i suggest that you change both coil springs at same time ? these can be purchased at good motor factors if you wish to diy or have some motor mechajc friend? do them for you? also check the actual struts for oil leakage as this is common cause of coils breaking due to no damping of strut/shock absorbing of suspension hope this helps ?

Front end noise


A suspension part is worn out - lift the front of the car and check the bushings (most likely), the pivots and the ball bearings.
