Question about 2006 Ford Focus
Had the front passenger tire replaced and now there is a rubbing/whining coming from that part of my 2006 focus. Sound increases when someone or something is weighing down that side of the car.
I presume that the tyre you have replaced is with the same specification size as on the either side, If so you need to check if the tyre is rubbing against the mudflaps or the mudguard specially when the side is loaded or the wheel is turned to one side. Lift up the side with a jack, turn the wheel to either side and check if there is enough gap on the sides. If you had replaced the tyre after a burst/puncture, had run the car after this had happened, then the wheel alignment must be looked in specially for the tow in/ out. Check for the wheel position using a thread held against the rear wheel and the front wheel postioned with a slight inner view, check the wheel from the top to bottom with a plumline. You will get some indication if there had been any shift in the chassis or the suspension. press down the side up and down to hear any creaking, if so check on your suspension parts, the lower arm, the roll bars and the strut/ shock absorbers. You have the problem lurking around here. Hope my advice helps you out. Good luck good day
