Just 12 hours before I'm due to trade in my Fusion for an 11 plate Mondeo I heard a grating noise
coming from the front left.

First of all it was only when the engine was under load & would disappear when I pressed the clutch pedal in.

By the time a got home (3 miles) it had progressively got worse & louder, although still disappears when clutch pedal is pushed in. Gearbox or clutch? Expensive repair (either suspect) ?

Will still be going ahead with the Mondeo but can't do the p/x now :(
