05 Focus ZX4 transmission grind

Hello all,

Just took my 05 Focus (~162K) for a grinding type of noise. Turns out it is coming from transmission and they suggested swapping it out for used one. This is going to run ~$2800! Car is probably worth less than that.

Anyway, has anyone had experience with getting re-built transmission or swapping one out on this year and model? Trying to decide whether it is worth the money. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Get a second opinion, there are several things that can make noise like that which have nothing to do with the trans.

Agreed..Could be an axle or wheel bearing.

Got a second opinion, guys. The sound is coming from the planetary assembly. Anyone have experience with this issue?
