Mine, like the guy above me was coming from the loop hole thing on the ebrake cable. You can see the wear spot in the picture. I wedged a piece of rubber in there and it totally stopped squeaking.

Oh and a pic of my new Focus:
Yours looks diff from ebrake is up along the side of the car, not a foot in from the side, so could be diff setup.

Not, it is more of a metallic scratching/screechy (but not wicked loud).
