SOURCE: noise in front end, sounds

You say the rear wheel axles and bearings have been replaced, you mention nothing of the front wheels, you have the symptoms of a front wheel bearing being worn out, remove them and check for pitting in the bearing rollers or the bearing races, I am sure you will find a problem. Hope this helps solve your issue with the bearing noise.

SOURCE: ford focus car

never mind the pundits who obviously work for dealers,service every 6000miles with full service every 12000miles ,and as for the warranty this is valid evan if vehicle has been serviced by a general mechanic,if dealer says its not complain to the EEC parliament who have already taken the dealers to task and passed this judgement.ps removing rear drums and inspecting the rear brakes is part of the main service ,just thats theirs lots of cowboys out their no matter what country your in who learn there tricks on charging from solicitors i think.

SOURCE: 2000 Ford Explorer AWD purchased with different size tires

It is true that driving with different size tires can damage the transfer case, depending on how long it was driven like that. But--- even if the tires are the same size it can cause this. if the tires are worn and two tires are new the circumference of the tires must not be more than 1/2 inch difference from each other, take a tape measure and put it around the tire in the center and measure the difference of each tire

SOURCE: 2002 ford Ranger 3.0 v6 (auto) rear end noise when accelerating on curves.

Grab the bed of the truck and vigorously rock the vehicle from side to side. If you hear clunking in the axle, you probably need to check the carrier bearings in the differential. I had the carrier bearings, wheel bearings, and seals replaced in my mother-in-law's 1991 Ranger for $280, and it rides like a new truck. Well, ok, it rides like an 18 year old truck with a new rear end. I provided the wheel bearings and seals to the shop, and they provided the carrier bearing, lube, and labor. While the axles are out, check the surface where the axles ride on the bearings. If they are worn, there are undersized bearing available, but it is usually cheaper and easier to just by new axles.

Clunk noise when turning


Check the cv shaft boots, if they are torn the grease inside will have come out and now the joints inside are worn out. Worn cv joints will cause noises when turning.

Struts noise?


I would tend to believe it's more likely a worn sway bar bushing or link if it's a rattle or a small clunk, if it's a loud clunk probably a strut, try bouncing he back of the car when parked, if you get the clunk probably a strut if only when driving,turning,braking probably just a bushing on the sway bar

What are swey bars on a ford focus


A sway bar is a suspension piece that keeps the left and right side of vehicle connected to help with turns. They are held together through sway bar links at each end, which are fairly common to break or rattle over bumps.

My ford focus has started humming in front end


this sounds like a hub bearing, to determine which one it is when your driving and you here the noise turn the steering wheel slightly left and then slightly right, the noise should get louder or lighter. If louder on right turn then it would be left bearing is bad because your putting more weight on the left side

With the steering wheel straight if u turn it right or left there is a clunking noise comming from under the car. the power steering fluid was low and i filled it up but the noise is still htere. any...


the drive couplings on the end of the drive shafts are noisy but not worn out so ignore ,make sure the rubber boots are not split and in good condition,if the boots are perished and split then replace them and whilst the coupling is off i always stip then by turning and moving teh cage do teh balls come out then wash in diesel and refit so the balls are in different positions ,repack with grease and then after rubber boot is pushed up the shaft refit the coupling and i always buy some big jubille clip for a chimney pipe from hardware shop and use these instead of them plastic tie things as they always come off allowing dirt back in ,if after cleaning and fitting a new boot they still make a noise just ignore it as its not dangerous or life threatening ,just a pain listerning to it .
