Hi Folks... first post here!
I got a 2008 1.8 TDCi Focus about a month ago - 40k on the clock.
It's recently developed a squeaking noise when pulling away quickly in 1st gear - from under the bonnet. I can make the same sound happen if I slowly raise the clutch with the handbrake on, just passed the biting point.
Doesn't sound like good news, and it's getting worse - any ideas? I'm thinking DMF or Clutch, though it seems a bit young for both. Similarly, would it be the DMF if the noise happens when lifting the clutch with the handbrake on?
Any ideas appreciated!
Edit: Just to clarify, no clutch slip to report, either.
