Customer Question

ford focus 100 2009 1.6 zetec petrol manual. when the car has been stationary with the hand brake on and ignition off for even a short period of time, when i start up and drive off after a short time, it could be a few seconds after pulling away or as long as 20 seconds, It only happens once and only lasts about 1 second, i get a scraping noise from what seems to be the front offside area of the car.

Hi there ,good evening to you

Ok I suspect the noise you are hearing is the ESP /ABS pump completing it's self test
This noise happens around 10.5 mph and only happens once after start up
It can be described as a metallic ping type noise
This actually comes from the passenger side bulkhead area
This noise is a normal operation of the vehicles esp system
