In Topic: Focus Osf Droning Noise From 40mph

Yesterday, 09:31 PM

Was it a genuine Ford bearing or pattern part? My NSF bearing lasted 90k miles from new and I had it replaced with pattern part. This only lasted for 20k miles and was replaced by another pattern part. This one was defective from new........ droning  and howling as soon as I left the garage. Garage replaced it, obviously free of charge and used another bearing manufacturer. Ironically, the car has now done 148k miles and the other three wheel bearings are still original.

Hard to diagnose without hearing it. Does the whine increase and decrease with speed? Does it happen in every gear? Does it do it with the clutch depressed? Try and eliminate the wheel bearings. Usually in my car, the whine comes from the passenger seat :)

What is the shiny vertical strip, 1/3 in from the left and 1/2 down from the top of photo? Looks like something is rubbing on inside of wheel.... i.e brake caliper.

Wouldn't the low battery voltage (duff battery as you put it) result in the injector pressure low when starting? Also isn't going to help glow plugs if battery voltage is low.

Nope. Why would you want to?
