Hi all,

I own a 2010 focus titanium and recently there has been a vibrating noise coming from the front end when i get to about 30mph and sounds like a 'wub wub wub' noise. It only happens when driving straight or to the right and goes silent when you turn the wheel to the left? It happens between about 30 - 60 mph.

Does anyone have any suggestions of what it might be or how much it may cost to fix as i'm no car expert. I remember my friend had something similar on his bmw and said it was his warped brake disks.

Cheers

TP

check them first just jack the front up and spin the wheel if the disks warped you will feel it the wheel will stick as it turns
