I recently bought a ford focus 1.6 zetec 2002 and when i had it used from 62000 miles i had the alternator belt tensioner done on it under warrenty
Now when i drive it i know the iac is screwed but a new one of them isnt important at the moment but i have a squeek it happens intermittently and i can hear it more on driver side than on passenger as i could hear it mrs couldnt but then again women for ya
i have thought of lots of things what it could be e.g. bushes , tensioners and all sorts even i thought at one point it was the cd player that was nakerd and it was just spinngin disc creating a noise no it wernt
has anyone else had this or could shed some light on it as its driving me mad i hope it isnt any pumps or what not i had the coil pack go on me about a month back but its all ok now
Would be so greatful if anyone could help me with this also i wil be doing a guide shortly on how to change a IAC (Idle air control valve)

Is it really loud or quiet?
Sorry for all the questions but as much information as possible will hopefully help with finding a solution.

Right its defo not engine as ht enoise happened again today suprise suprise so i thought i know foot down on clutch turn engine off see what happens well the noise was still there so ruled that one out nex thing
drums when i press on brakes without handbrake on the noise is like a short squeeking noise
im thinking could well be that even though i can hear it from the front as my brakes do screechhhh in the wet till there warm
last but not least the bottom joint things i am obtaining some what of a very good piece of data this week the ford manuals all on one disc and technical notes up to 03 so i cna phreaps help u lot out but
weekend going to buy a new IAC Valve , oil and a filter as mine may have been changed but still oil a little low for my liking

GUESS WHAT IT IT WAS ??????????????
well i was cleaning the car the other day and my little sis insited on helping me she wanted to play basically pressing buttons honking horns and turning signals on and such like anyways she sat up in a funny way slouching on the drivers seat and to my dismay "SQUEEK" a loud noise chirpped up i said ot her do what u just did again so she did as i started to rock the steering in a specific way it would squeek but not others i thought are the knucle joint thing need grease NOPE still not done hmmmmmmmmmm i wonder well most of the time when renaults squeek the steering it is the rotary switch so i took the panel off the cowl piece and had a look i found my rotary switch must be sticking out by about 1mm and when u push it back well bend it // flex it the squeek goes wow i found it £35 + vat to me at ford just got to get it fitted for time being i just turn radio up but well done to my little sister so guys and girls want your squeeks knock and bumps diagnosing i will send my sis round to play in your car lol
