I have a 2012 focus with 48,000 miles, mostly highway miles. A new clutch was recently put in due to a chasis shudder recall. There is a grinding sound near the driver side changing into second and third gears. The sound is mostly produced while going uphill. There is also a knocking below the pedals while turning the wheel sharply. Technicians have not driven the car enough to hear the noise. I just need some opinions to suggest to the dealer to help point them in the right direction.

I'd explain to them what your hearing & when, speed, turning straight or what.

Knocking sounds like a joint that needs to be lubricated or is damaged.

I would just take it to the dealer and describe the sounds you hear. Sometimes it's easier to get things done when you just give them the basics.

One way you can accomplish this is do a drive with the techs to show them exactly how and when it happens. Is your Focus still at the dealer?

I'd explain to them what your hearing & when, speed, turning straight or what.
