Full Version: 'squeek' When In Too High A Gear.
Ford Owners Club - Ford Forums > Ford Models > Ford Focus Club

I'm finding i've had a bit of an annoyance when I happen to be in too high a gear for the current revs.
If I for example, change to third gear maybe 3-4 seconds too early, and likewise in all gears, I hear quite a high pitched squeek that sounds a bit like a none-oiled cog turning.

The noise seems to come from drivers side but I can't work out if it's infront of me or behind me.

It's annoying me loads, any ideas?

fan belt would be my guess
Fan belt like artscot said. Same thing happened with my old diesel Astra. A way to prove that it's the fan belt would be to rub dried soap on the belt and see if it temporarily goes away. If it does, you need a new belt.
