When I take off, on my EF, I get this weird sound coming from the back, around the wheel area, but I can't work out which side it's coming from. I thought it might be a locked brake or something.
Does anyone have any idea what it could be? It sounds like 2 steel bits are rubbing up agains each other. Also, it only happens at one point of the rotation of the whell, so it's not contant, only when that part passes by, and only until I reach about 50km/h.
Then it stops. It does not sound when I'm braking or slowing down. Could it also be the diff?? Don't know just asking.
Two things come to mind! What is left in you brake pads? Maybe steel to steel,pads warnout. Or could be a stone stuck in caliper somewhere..Some pads or cars have a scrapper that scratches on disc to let you know that service is required.Simple but works!!
Diff full of oil???
Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!

i have exactly the same noise in my ef.. just started recently...
my rear left brakes may have a prob (just one pad is nearly worn right through, others are still half.. )
but i was thinking diff or bearing too..
im very interested if you find out what it is.... email me firstname.lastname@example.org if u fix it (or ill let u know if i do)
Don't EF's and EL's (don't know about AU) have a park brake mechanism that's separate to the normal brake system? - ie. the park brake is a set of drum type brakes inside the rear hub - so maybe the park brake mechanism could be slightly out of adjustment?
All good suggestions.
Thank you... I appreciate them.
I will print all this out and take it home with me tonight to check it out either today or over the weekend. If anyone has anymore, please keep 'em coming... I wanna tackle all possible issues.
It's p*ss*ng me off, and I don't know if it's gonna get worse.
I've just heard some bad news about my dad's EF, Knox Ford told him today, after picking it up from a service that he might have a leaking head gasket. (bound to happen as it commonly does to EF's)
