Hi all

not had the car long but noticing a strange whining noise when I hit 50mph plus. Sounds like it's on a rotation which increases with speed. Like this

whine...... Whine...... Whine..... Ect.

Anyone got any idea what to look for?

It's a 2011 mk3 Focus 2.0l diesel.

Thanks

No sound stays the same. All tyres are brand new as part of the sale. If it's disks the garage won't do it under its warranty but they will if it's a baring. Trouble is I'm right in the end of the warranty period lol. Typical.

its most likely the wheel bearing.

i also used to get a squeal when braking in reverse, that would be due to possibly lack of anti seize on the pads or something catching the brakes on reverse.

In starting to think it's actually a noise from the engine. It wasn't as loud yesterday. Infact only noticed it on one stretch of motorway. It's so hard to explain it sounds like the engine noise that naturally occurs while driving. The one that will slow and drop in tone add the car slows to a stop off that makes sense. It's just at 55mph it becomes this whine..... Whine..... Whine... It's nice and quiet at lower speeds.

Maybe it's just the noise these cars make?

Had the car looked at and turns out it is the tyres. They are brand new but the garage or previous owner have put on the cheapest crap they could find basically. They will be ok just loud. I may replace them at some point soon.

At least you know what it is then, doesnt pay to put cheap tyres on, unfortunatly you will have endure the noise or replace new tyres,
