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.

Any joy Chris with the noise after you took your car in?
