More likely to be a clutch thrust bearing than the turbo IMHO... but thats not exactly good news!

Sounds likely a clutch issue, thrust bearing maybe. If its not effecting the car then I'd carry in regardless unless it starts getting worse, or effecting gear changes. Also if being gentle does make it better, treat it like a lady ;-)

Could actually be a lose CV joint also, just found out the hard way my car just stoped after going around a roundabout and would not drive, clutch and gearbox all ok.

If you login to http://www.etis.ford...0D8A6.eccvas509 with your registration, it tells you there if there is anything particular that you need to be aware.

Sometimes, the best means is just call up to a dealer and give them the details and see what they say :)

Hi

I think it might be me bringing the clutch up too fast , again its only around the 1st-3rd gears but last night I tried taking my foot of the clutch slower and I could not here the noise , so It could be that , as at times I think I do take my foot of it a bit fast.

I will see If I can here the ABS test thing when I set off for work today.

cheers

i have just purchased a focus this weekend and have noticed the exact some thing..

have you had any problems with it ?, is it just a case of adjusting driving style ?

Don't you have to be an independent garage to register and get access to that sort of stuff??  :wacko:
