Ok, so I haven't been here in a while (no longer have my SVT), but my father inlaw drives a 2005 Focus ZX4 (plain jane) and the other week he had the wheel bearings replaced and thought everything was fine. However........the car now makes a noise on the front driver side wheel that sounds like as if he just bought a new tire and the sticker was left on the tire. You guys know what I'm talking about...it's that of flapping paper on ther road. I really don't know if the bearing went bad because I thought if a bearing went bad, it made a much worse "metal" sound of grinding. I know it's not any of the drive axles (i know that much at least), but I really don't know much about beaings and stuff like that. So, I am really asking for some words of wisdom here. Does anybody know what the hell is making that noise now?

I apprecaite any feedback you can give.[thumb]

MAVE: Thanks for the input...I appreciate it. I will suggest to him to have it looked at.


levin.matthew: Thank you for your suggestion as well. I don't know if the rotor was warped or damaged, but I will ask him.

I don't know exactly how to describe that noise, but I do know it is freaking annoying. Do you know what type of noise the car would make if a bearing was bad?

Thanks again guys!!!
