My focus used to be nice and quiet at high speeds, now at 50 m.p.h.
a low pitched noise appears which is fairly loud and the pitch/frequency is
proportional to the speed.
I haven't the first idea what this could be, any ideas? I'll have to take
it to fords but I'm a little wary of the fact that its a bit of an odd problem
that they may not be able to solve.
The car has done 50k so far
Thanks for any suggestions
I'd agree with per, sounds like wheel bearings to me. Recommend that you get
it sorted ASAP as a wheel hub flying off a car is dangerious good lucky.
Take it to fords for a full check they should be able to sort it quickly for
Sure sounds like wheel bearings to me, my 51 plate focus 2.0 ( 20k miles
now ) has had both rear wheel bearings fail in the last 6 months. My local
dealer did not seem surprised at the failures, maybe its another "feature"
of the Focus.
Happy motoring, i'm buying Japanese next time.
