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 mine...my 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).

I have had this problem since I bought the car in 2008. It is a 2006 ZX4. After reading this thread I remembered the noise when I bought the car. I told the dealership and they fixed it and told me it was the e-brake!!! I have replaced the shock and just a couple of days ago put a brand new swing arm (??) on at $145!!!!! and I just drove over the railroad tracks tonight and the sound is back!!! Sooooooooooooooooo pissed!

I am going to have my bf look at it and I am crossing my fingers because I simply cannot deal with the squeak anymore and it makes my car sound like a POS!!!

If you look underneath the car about 8-12 inches ahead of the rear passenger side wheel you will see a steel cable wrapped in rubber going through a ring bolted on the frame. You will most likely find that the rubber has worn away and it is metal rubbing metal making the squeak.

It is under the car in this area.



Unfortunately, greasing it is only a temporary solution, and I have used rubberized electrical tape on mine now, but I am certain that will wear away too.

This is the ring-you will see the red tape is what I added under the ring.

This article supersedes TSB 06-25-2 to update the model years and Service Procedure.

ISSUE:
Some 2006-2007 Focus vehicles may exhibit a squeaking noise from the rear of the vehicle over bumps. This noise may be caused by contact between the rear parking brake cable sleeve and the wire form bracket located under the vehicle near the rear suspension tie bar being transferred into the vehicle body.

ACTION:
Follow the Service Procedure steps to correct the condition.

SERVICE PROCEDURE

Remove the parking brake cable bolt. (Figure 1)


Figure 1 - Article 08-4-15


Insert the plastic insert into the square hole used for locating the parking brake cable guide. (Figure 1)
Remove any existing grease from the cable guide and cable (in this area only) by wiping clean with a suitable service towel.
Install the cable guide onto vehicle by inserting the locating tab of the guide into the center of the plastic insert and reinstalling the parking brake cable bolt. Torque to 17 lb-ft (23 N-m).

Omg- thank you!!!

After disassembling the right rear suspension and still not finding that dam squeak I saw this post and fixed mine! That's been wearing me out for two weeks!
I took a thick zip-tie and stuck it through the hook so the cable rides against the nylon tie. No more squeak!!! THANK YOU!!! You ROCK!
