STRANGE TICKING/SQUEAKING/COARSE SOUND ON THE FRONT LHS

Post by kuvash » Fri Feb 15, 2019 4:44 pm

Hi Guys,
I am new here.
I have an issue with my 2015 focus st3, there is a ticking / squeaky / coarse noise (like metal rubbing against metal) on the front LHS wheel.
I have put new disks & brakes as per ford Sandton's instruction and the noise is till there - ford has not been able to determine the cause of the noise,

could it be the CV joint?

I have a video recording of the sound as well - please help

could be CV's they normally make a clunk or knock kind of sound when turned and you pull off gently - maybe also check bearings / hubs
