Ticking noise on the front RHS wheel

Postby Patzen » Thu Jan 03, 2019 11:34 pm

Hi guys,

I have been advised by two different technicians from different Ford dealers to replace the drive shaft.
I need to buy a RHS drive shaft assembly for my 2011 focus 225st.
Ford has quoted me R6200 for the part, so I’m trying to get a cheaper offer.
I’m based in the east rand but I’m happy to collect around Gp if anyone has a set.

Hi bud

I had more or less the same sound, the issue on mine was the outer CV joint. I replaced both the outer joints. The only issue is that there are different sizes listed for the Focus ST and you need to have the sample, 1 had a smaller cup and the shaft diameter was smaller, the one for my car was bigger. I broke off the cup and took that and the piece that goes on the shaft as a sample.
Searched almost everywhere in Durban and eventually got it Grandmark in Glen Anil, it was about R600 each, the brand was Solid. I think they have a branch in JHB also.
I have the part number on the box at home, I can post it here on Monday.
Hope this helps...
