Answer to 02 Ford Focus 5th gear noise


#1

Thanks to everyone who gave me advice. Since this car is a manual, I couldn’t ck the transaxle fluid so I took it to a car shop.The problem was a bad rear wheel bearing. Now the car runs well again.

Thanks for coming back & telling us what the problem was & yes a wheel bearing can get louder the faster you go .

Good for you for getting your car back on the road in good running order. Wheel bearings sounds can sometimes be pretty difficult to diagnose, so your shop did a good job for you.
