Ticking noise on the front RHS wheel

Post by 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.

Thanks

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...

Hi Guys,

I have similar issue with my 2015 focus st3, there is a ticking / squeaky noise on the front LHS,
put new disks & brakes as per fords 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 as in your case?

Mine was caused by CV joints.
I got guys in Randburg that did service on the CV joints and noise went away.
They said my drive shaft is fine and the CV joints didn’t need any replacement.
Ford guys don’t seem to know what they are doing.
I spent only R800 bucks.
