2006 ford focus front end noise stops when applying brake

2006 Focus-metal to metal knocking sound from the front driver's side comes and goes, but can be silenced by touching brake pedal. The sound will continue when letting off the brake pedal. Knocking sound has been going on for over two years. Over half a dozen mechanics have driven and looked at the car with no answers. Ford dealership said wait until it breaks ( was under warranty at the time ).

Saw your other post and thought you just let it go for 2 years.
did they change the rotors? an imperfection in the rotor can cause it to make a noise, you would think that the first mechanic would have changed out the rotors and pads to rule it out, i doubt it would be the caliper because it is not close enough, did they check the bearing and axle?

SOURCE: Loud engine knocking on 2001 Ford Focus

Sounds to me like a very common problem has occured to your neighbor. If this is a SOHC engine, one of the valve seats in the number 4 cylinder has fallen out. I'm sure it has damaged the head and the piston. Stop trying to run it or you might blow a hole in the cylinder wall or break a rod or both.

The power brake booster has a bad valve. I can't suggest where to find a new valve for it, but you can buy a rebuilt replacement. They are usually not hard to put on.

SOURCE: ford focus car engine light coming on knocking

Go to Orielly auto parts and rent their OBD scanner. If you takethe vehicle to them they wont charge you for the scanner. The dealer will charge you $100 or more to check it for you. Depending on how loud the knock is I would not recomend driving the vehicle until you scan it. Once you scan it write down the codes and Oriellys can translate them for you also.

SOURCE: When breaking my 2010 ford focus has a loud kocking noise from rear

I would pull the wheels and look for something loose on the brakes, such as a spring or self adjuster. Also look at the backing plate to see if it is tight.
Keep in mind it may be something covered by the car's warranty.

Metal to metal knocking sound stops when applying brake.


I just had the same issue. First, check the lug nuts and make sure they aren't loose. If that's not the issue check the brake components. There is a spring that attaches to the caliper to keep pressure on the brake. It's a $7.99 part that was missing that drove us crazy for months! We were sure it was the cv joint! Easy fix!!!

How do you bleed the brakes on a 2006 ford focus?


start at the rear passenger side, then the drivers side rear, then onto the front passengers side, then finally the front drivers side, you can do it this way if you have the correct tool which you can borrow from many auto part supply stores ( with a small deposit ) http://www.youtube.com/user/scottykilmer#p/search/0/L0oUejw5Edc

Squeaking noise and knocking noise coming from front drivers side. No noise when driving in wet conditions. No noise when i reverse and brake either.


I would first check your front half shafts, it seems like they are either worn out or the boots have torn or cracked allowing dirt and moisture to get into the bearings.

Focus front brake grinding noise on frist braking in the mornring


Look for a metal tab at the brake. It's only supposed to touch (and make noise) when the brakes are worn down. Sounds like it's bent in too far.

2001 FORD FOCUS LOAD TICKING NOISE


it very well can be that depending on the severity of the ticking noise, if it sounds like its coming from the top of the engine, place your hand on it only when you first start it up and if you can feel it knocking slightly and if the noise dies away once warmed up id say its your lifter, if its a heavier knocking rather than a ticking and comes from below or bottom end of engine it may be big end bearing, not good. try putting some engine treatment through the engine oil and make sure you run it in as directions state then change the oil and filter and see if that helps :)
