Question about 2010 Ford Focus 1.6
There is a steady Rubbing noise from front when accelerating from a stop until the car reaches 15 mph then it completly stops. There is no slippage.We had a brake job done at dealer, complete with new rotors. We thought it might be the brakes so we took it back. They checked brakes said they were ok. They told us there was vibration from the tranny, could be tranny carrier bearing. They dont do tranny repairs, theynoffered to replace ours for $4000, which we cant afford, who can? What could it be?
Have the cv joints checked out and check that the rubber boots are not loose and rubbing on the metal surrounds.

I had the same problem that based on interner research is common for Fords trcuks/suvs. The common problem fro rear humming "rubbing"sound might be the rear wheel bearings/seal. These will need to be replaced as it will progressivly get worse and the noise louder and eventually the bearings can sieze. I would hesitate to take to a ford dealer if I were you as it can run $500-900. Take to mechanic that knows how to replace wheel bearings and seals. My mechanic replaced them for about $150. and the bearing and seals are around $40. A good way to test this is to raise the wheel were you can freely spin by hand...if does not spin or there is a lot of friction then it might be the wheel bearings.

SOURCE: Front Passenger brakes rubbing
Dis brakes have residual pressure thar keeps the pads in constant contact with the roter.It is very light contact, so not to worry. If left is not in contact with rotor then chk it for loose wheel bearings.
