Focus 2002 scraping noise

Has anyone else found they have a dry scraping sound from the engine
or tranny at between 1500 and 3000 revs? Very difficult to pin down where it's from. Its definitely not the air con compressor.

Re: Focus 2002 scraping noise

I have found that very occassionally, when I put the car in first gear, the car seems to go into gear, but then when I release the clutch, it starts to give off this scraping sound but the car is driving along anyway (ie, it is not a gear change error where the gear's just banged off the gate with a loud noise and goes back to neutral -- eg with the older subarus which seems to fooking hate going from 2nd to 3rd gear). However, if I declutch and re-engage the gear/change to a higher gear, it goes away. I have no idea why it happens, as I am usually very careful with the clutching when I am changing gear, and I didn't do anything different from what I normally do when it happens! Very annoying. Causes people to think I am a muppet with the gear changes sometimes.

Re: Focus 2002 scraping noise

This noise is present when idling as well, and just upping the revs, not even changing gear.
Any clues?
Thanks for replies so far.
