Question about 2006 Ford Focus
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.
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!!!

Wow.... well the tire is still attached so you can probably rule out a bad ball joint.

THIS COULD BE SEVERAL ITEMS. FIRST LOOK AT THE SHOCK ABSORBER. LOOK AT THE ENDS WHERE THEY ATTACH. SOMETIMES THE RUBBER BUSHINGS GET BEAT OUT AND THEN THERE IS ONLY THE MOUNTING BOLT THAT BANGS AROUND IN THE HOLE. ALSO CHECK SUSPENSION BUSHINGS FOR EXCESSIVE WEAR AT PIVOT POINTS. DON'T KNOW IF THIS WILL HELP BECAUSE OF LACK OF INFORMATION, BUT THIS IS A STARTING POINT FOR YOU. GOOD LUCK.

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.

this can be a serious problem, sounds like one of your engine valves, has the car overheated recently? if your valves bent, you need to take the engine apart hope i helped

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.
