Hi,I am new to the forum,so be gentle,lol................I have a Ford Focus 2.0 ESP,having had it for about a month now...It has now developed this creaking noise from the front..I jack front end of car up and when turning the steering both ways,the creaking sound could clearly be heard...I,at first thought it was to do with the steering rack but I have hopefully elimated that as the problem....What I done was put lube at top of strut mount and this seemed to elimate the creaking,however,I have just been out for a run in car and although not as bad as vefore it still does it,it is now getting very irritating.....It does appear to me to be something to do with top of strut as lube appeared to eliminate it when wheels were off ground and turned both ways.....is this a common problem on the Focus? and how can I eliminate the creaking once and for all??much appreciated
