Grinding sound when losing traction

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I'm new around here, looking for some help.

I have a 2009 Ford Focus Mk2.5 Zetec s/s 1.8.  Had it since November,  there's about 62000 miles on the clock.  

Recently noticed a grinding/grating noise when braking heavily on low traction surfaces.  It's not a normal ABS sound, I'm fairly confident what ABS activation sounds like.  I thought at first it may be the ABS malfunctioning, but I've also noticed on a few occasions the same sound with a bit of wheel spin, but not every time.  So it seems it's more associated with losing traction than just heavy braking.  

Here's a dash cam video where you can hear the sound: Any ideas/help with what it could be would be appreciated.

Thanks,

I get the same especially in snow but apparently abs is noisy and if normal breaking is fine then there is nothing wrong but I hate it it's scary lol
