Hi all,

I just got a Mk1 Focus 2.0 from a friend and I noticed 2 things in the first few miles of driving it.

1) when the clutch is released and left in neutral there is a slight rattling noise from the engine bay.

2) When in gear and I accelerate hard there is a noise that sounds like metal rubbing on metal its like a constant rushing noise similar to intense air flow i suppose.

I am not sure where to start with this but I have eliminated the wheel bearings so far at least. Can anyone shed any light on what it may be causing this?

Thanks in advance,

Lee

I think the first problem could be the clutch release bearing, according to the haynes manual, it has it listed as one of the sympthons. The second problem from your description could be worn brake pads. It may have also damaged the caliper piston and caused it to stick as a result. A visual check can confirm this. A reconditioned set of calipers would be order if this is the case. I got a set from Big Redd brakes on ebay.

If this model has a DMFthat is the most likly cause when on idle is the noise from around the gearbox/bellhousing area.

Sorry what is a DMF?

My model is a petrol (my profile needs updating)

I could get the entire clutch kit replaced if needed, do you think it is better to do that?

Thanks for you help

DMF IS duel mass flywheel and is unlikely to be fitted to your petrol engine so please ignore my post.
